I passed five collective feet of mucoid plaque yesterday, but felt like I still had to "go." I felt clogged. I did an enema last night, but only a little water came back out, with a bunch of toilet-paper-looking candida flakes. This morning I still couldn't go, even though I've been eating regularly all along.
Today I didn't eat anything. I've been preoccupied with cleaning house, and surprisingly not hungry. This afternoon, I decided to try a salt water flush. I used Shelley's (askshelley.com) recipe of two TBSP non-iodized Sea Salt in a warm quart of filtered water. I was only able to drink slightly more than half of it before I gave up. I was so nauseous. It did work, though. About twenty minutes later I passed the most foul-smelling, disgusting-looking bunch of mucoid plaque. It was shorter than I'd expected, but much thicker. I'll spare you the other details.
After that, I hoped more would follow, but I just kept feeling nauseous. I probably did a dumb thing. I ate a tiny piece of honeydew melon. Then after awhile I ate another tiny piece. It helped get the salt taste out of my mouth. And still later, I decided it would be all right to eat/drink, but nothing sounded good except apple juice. I drank a little, then felt another movement coming. I don't know WHAT it was, but it fell into the toilet like a ROCK, followed by diarrhea. I barely made it out of the bathroom, then, before throwing up salt water and bitter bile all over the floor.
EDITING TO ADD - Since I posted, I've had three more big rounds of dark water/diarrhea. The big mp and that 'rock' were obviously the plugs. I'm wondering now, eeuuw, if the 'rock' might have been a... parasite? of some huge sort? It didn't feel like a rock coming out, it felt like a regular bowel movement, but it was so heavy! Incidentally, I know this is weird, but I weighed myself while I was waiting for the swf to work, and again just a minute ago (about an hour apart) and there was a two pound difference!
Drinking salt water was very very difficult for me. I don't think I'll ever try this method again! But... it did work. I think it might have been the fruit and apple juice, mixed with salt-water that was apparently still in my stomach, that made me throw up.
i did not get what u meant
never again?means was this horrible?
can i drink juice after this ?
usaid u drank apple juice and then u had this rock this comming out ..
that was a good think right?
so what exactly do u mean..im confused
Ugh, yes. I did read some posts where this was being debated, but I trusted Shelley. SHELLEY!!!!!!!! Here's what I read - copied from askshelley.com:
Salt Water Flush
The Salt Water Flush is basically an enema that you drink. The advantage over the enema is that unlike an enema, you also flush your small intestine. The disadvantage is you have to drink a lot of salty water, blech! :)
Warm up one quart of good filtered water, NOT distilled, in a safe, non-reactive pan. It should feel comfortably warm, but not hot, to your elbow.
Add two tablespoons of salt. It can be Hains Sea Salt - non-iodized, or a better Sea Salt , or Kosher Salt. Just don't use an iodized salt.
Taste the water. It should be as salty as chicken soup. If it is not salty enough, you will absorb the water rather than pass it, which will make you bloated and ill, and overwhelm the kidneys, so if in doubt, use too much salt rather than too little.
Drink it all down at once best you can.
Crouch down and start rubbing your abdomen in a clockwise direction, helping the water pass through and dislodging any impacted fecal matter.
Release as needed. It should come out as "butt pee."
Note: You should skip at least one meal, preferably a few meals prior to doing a SWF. For instance, do it in the morning after skipping dinner and snacks the night before. It is best done while fasting. It's safe to do the day after a good fiber shake if you used a safe fiber, but not good to do if you are suffering chronic constipation and wish to induce a BM. The water might balloon out your intestines too much around the impacted fecal matter. Do not do a salt water flush if your tongue has thick cracks and grooves on it.
Ok so I did the salt water splash last night. I vomited before going. it took like 3 hours for it to work. And It wasn't watery stools it was just soft. I used 2 tablespoon and 8ounze of water. The water wasn't salty. Should I try it again? What went wrong
Yes EXACTLY! You should only use 2 TEASPOONS of non-iodized Sea Salt for a quart of water. 2 TBS is way, way too much. This salt water flush is associated with The Master Cleanser (lemon, cayenne, maple syrup) cleanse. I've been doing it for years and it works really well!!! I cannot, however, imagine doing the salt flush with any kind of food in the stomach or intestines. I only do it after at least three days of being on The Master Cleanse when the gastro tract is empty and open. Good luck!
Drinking salt water was very very difficult for me. I don't think I'll ever try this method again! But... it did work. I think it might have been the fruit and apple juice, mixed with salt-water that was apparently still in my stomach, that made me throw up. After the blockage was passed, much fluid passed. I'm fine now - can drink/eat anything because there isn't a pool of salt water clogged up in my stomach.
Any recommendations? I weighed while waiting for the swf, then right afterwards. I was two pounds lighter. It's a digital scale, which probably rounds to nearest pound, so maybe it wasn't a full two pounds? Anyway, I just weighed again, and it's UP four pounds! I've never been obsessive about my weight before, but I've been curious since I started passing mucoid plaque. I have been really thirsty (and tired) since this afternoon's swf. Maybe it's all liquid. Maybe it's the way I was standing. Who knows. Blah! I was LIKING the "two pounds less"!!!
Hi I'm having the exact same problem caused by salt water and I'm really happy to know that you were recovered from it. Could you please tell me what you took to get better or how long it took before all the salt clogged in your stomach went away. I will be going to see my GP soon during the mean time do you know what I could possibly eat every day I'm getting stomach cramps because of this thanks!
You may want to try 2 tsp of salt to 32 ounces, as opposed to 2 Tbsp. A laxative tea the night before the salt water cleanse may help, followed by the salt water first thing in the AM.
Many gulp it to try to just get it down. That may work for some, but not for others. When on the MC, I took sips every minute. Yes, it took longer, but I know my body and gulping will only make it come back up (and it doesn't matter what I gulp).
My main concern, however, with a salt water flush is that one not have a condition in which salt may be harmful to them in fast or excessive doses. On the MC, the sodium intake is very limited (lemons only have approx. 1 mg each, and maple syrup approx.2 mg). However, if one is not on a cleanse, this may be an overload of salt. Just something to consider :)
the colonic ASSOCIATION with COLON DOCTORS. There is a pdf. READ IT. Anyone who has a colonic endoscopy can see plain as day that their colons are pink and healthy, NOTHING "builds up" around the walls of your colon, its a myth that only old women believe. Whats coming out of you is CLAY from the cleanse tablets you are poisoning yourself with. Do you REALLY think you could function with your colon being BLOCKED with a layer of junk around it? YOU WOULD DIE. If feels like theres gunk in there because you're overweight and you want to blame it on something other than you are a gluttonous, fatASS that doesnt exercise enough and you think that you can clean yourself out and get skinny again with a magic pill or diet. NOPE. Only eating right and exercise will cure your fat belly. It's not crap in there its CHEESEBURGERS and FAT. You feel bloated because you ARE bloated. Eat right, drink some coffee and youll be fine. I cant believe in 2013 with the INTERNET at everyones fingertips people still believe this BS. WAKE UP.
It really annoys me when people come on websites like this and belittle all the people who are looking for answers. What are you credentials? You can only supply a PDF that you read somewhere online... Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences and I look forward to trying it out.

Response to Quoted material:
Obviously you have failed to look at the organization tied to that 'PDF'.......organization of COLON HYDROTHERAPY PRACTITIONERS!
Obviously, the internet is not the place one 'should be looking for health information ' in the first place without consulting the appropriate professional!
Learn to do your research properly and thoroughly....
Here are some more reputable sources (university and medical/clinical studies are of course the best) to learn the various takes on the 'Colon Cleanse' craze. Informed decisions are smarter decisions.
*** And don't follow what 'gimmick' rogue webpages advise you to do.
Eat healthy, stay active, and stay happy.....that will make the difference (with appropriate health care advice from professionals along the way...not random people on the internet....experience does not mean truth....only that which one experiences that another can't experience the same way....may only appear similar in various details).
Very well said, #63778. Additionally, the medical community has been posting ill advice to attempt to combat the natural remedies that do work. Many of the "experts" in the links are "dietitians” of whom are actually very limited in scope. I had a dietitian criticize what a licensed nutritionist had done for me. The dietitian knew nothing. It was actually frightening to see how little the do know. My nutritionist had her MA in nutrition. She had helped me tremendously, and the dietitian mocked her until I came back with just how wrong she was (and she stormed off).
I, personally, did the Master Cleanse, and was AMAZED at the benefits it did. It cleared up 2 conditions that I’d had for years AND had seen doctors with regard to the conditions. I’m certainly not saying it’s a cure all. Nevertheless, it certainly helped me.
Having said that, in the future, OP may want to try 2 tsp of salt to 32 ounces, as opposed to 2 Tbsp. A laxative tea the night before the salt water cleanse may help, followed by the salt water first thing in the AM.
As the poster who thinks he/she is “enlightened,” (LOL – and I suspect he/she and “wow” are the same person): said person sounds very bitter. Perhaps they just prefer to go the lazy root and use medicine as a quick cure all. What a bitter bitter person they are. I, personally, am NOT a menopausal woman. I am vegetarian and do NOT eat cheeseburgers and unnecessary fat. I AM educated and have my degree. And I can say for a certainty that my great aunts and grandparents had passed on AMAZING “old wives tales,” that WORKED! The reasoning may have been flawed - the methods were not. So, don’t mock the “uneducated” (although my parents who passed along such wisdom, and some of my grandparents were educated – they offered pearls of wisdom far beyond any institution). Wisdom doesn’t come from a classroom – neither does compassion. Both of which you are sorely lacking – as well as solid research skills.
