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!
