sorry rappy that i didn't get back to you. i use non-iodized Sea Salt from the health food store. i do it in a mug with 2 cups of water that i heat in the micro for 2 mins 15 sec and then i add 1 tsp (heaping) and then after i guzzle that i do it all over again. that equals 1 quart with 2 tsps of Sea Salt . in the 6+ times i have done the cleanse it has worked everytime. my husband does that also but he can't guzzle it so he sips it and it seems to take forever for him to drink it. he seems to eliminate in the same amount of time that i do so both ways work for us. i hope you find what works best for you soon. i always feel so clean after i SWF. this is day 6 for me and i have been fighting a cold for over 3 1/2 weeks and the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) has been so good for my throat. usually i dislike it intensely but i welcome the relief it has been giving my tortured throat! happy cleansing to you.
