I have started drinking my lemon water and my salt water together in the mornings. About 10 oz filtered water, 1/2 t. sea salt and at least 1 T organic lemon juice, stir it up, drink it down within 30 min. Every day that I drink that in the AM, but evening, great BM. I know it is supposed to clear mucus for A's, but wow, it clears more than that for me! How does this help those that drink lemon water in the AM? I don't know if it's the salt or lemon or a combo that is doing me so much good, but I think one could use this for a colon cleanse!!!

It's the sea salt- the salt water flush is 1 qt of warm water plus 2 teaspoons of seasalt.  Most people drink it straight down, taste like a salty clear bouillion.  within 1  1/2 to 3 hrs you should empty out.  Recommended not to eat until you empty out, Good Advice: Stay near access to a bathroom.  The lemon juice is also used as a dieuretic, forces fluid to leave body especially from tissue.  Make sure you drink enough fluid daily.  Hope this answers your ?

Italybound, I think it's the lemon. In my experience, when I was drinking my warm lemon water (and being compliant with my food intake), that would be the thing that spurred on the elimination. I've not been drinking the warm lemon water since I moved to Colorado, but am taking Polyflora which does the same thing for me. But today was the third day that I've been drinking the warm lemon and salt water, based on Dr. Lam's recommendation for adrenal fatigue. I was worried about the amount of salt, but the drink tastes really good to me, especially first thing in the morning.

I drink a small glass of warm water with half of an organic lemon every morning.  

This helps to clear mucos from the system and revs up the digestive system, which can be sluggish for blood type A's.

I believe warm lemon water would be fine for all blood types; lemon is a fruit known for its internal cleansing properties.

I have read over and over of members having their salt water every morning, as well as the lemon. I tried the salt water a while back, but  .  After reading about the need of the salt water at the same site (Dr Lam), I decided, I'd better give it a shot. So, just dumped them together to make a better drink IMO anyway. Just goes down easier for me. My brother has been having BM problems and I'm trying to get him to give this a  **real** try. He has done it a day here and a day there, but I want him to give it at least a week. He started today, so we'll see...........

The salt water flush is very good. Check this http://lifeevents.org/salt-water-cleanse.htm
I try to  drink every once in a while to keep clean but only on the weekends as you do need to be close to a bathroom for a few hours after drinking. It makes you feel very clean inside. The taste is   but it does work

If one is wanting to be kept cleaned out but not have to be tied to the bathroom, what I'm drinking in the AMs is the way to go. I have a nice BM, but nothing close to diahrrea, more like what a BM should be. It's absolutely wonderful. I'm just glowing.  Jes' kiddin'    But hey maybe in the end (no pun intended), I *will* be glowing!

Taking one or two Polyflora on an empty stomach at bedtime may help move your bowel movements up to morning time after the lemon juice.

Interesting information, I might have to give it a try.

You also might want to check this out. Don't know how it impacts the BTD program.

I don't understand what you mean by "normal" salt, or why this would be cheating?

Table salt is really bad for you, and the seas are being polluted on a regular basis so sea salt is not always good for you either.

I've been using the Himalayan salt in cooking, and I see nothing wrong with using such a pure and beneficial form like this for daily consumption. If you read the info on the links I provided, it gives instruction on how to take this salt solution on a daily basis (along with salt baths, neti pot, etc.)

Lisalea, thanks for the interestinglink, on ACV.
Italybound, why did you have to take ACV in the morning as a kid? Were your parents health food people? I guess it runs in the family..?

I go through phases on how well the warm lemon/salt water works for elimination, and much of it has to do with what I ate the day before. But I love the taste of it!

Italy - I wonder what effect if any the salt/lemon might have on intestional flora. (could it kill candida?) Do you take something to encourage healthy intestinal flora?

I tried the Salt Flush and it is amazing, but it does require a Spa Day - or at least Spa Morning. (my term for  dropping everything while I take care of my health)

I'll try your recipe.  Thanks for sharing.

The link to Dr Lam about Adrenal Fatigue is a real eye opener. I'm still trying to absorb it and apply it.
