You are exactly right about the psylium and bentonite. They certainly do need to be flushed out and either lots of water of the saltwater flush is necessary. I was perhaps not precise enough about the way I was writting things. I also (apologize if this wasn't clear) was only referring to what I have chosen to encorperate into my own cleanse, I was not claiming it to be the "master cleanse" protocol. All that I intended to impress upon the individual I was responding to was that using laxatives (whatever source they may be) is essential in any fasting protocal in order to help your body flush out the toxins you are releasinf through the process of fasting/cleansing. Thanks for adding your post to clarify what I was saying. I probably agree with you more than you realize.
