Funny, I did a salt-water flush on accident, and I think it really helped me! It's a long and embarrassing story, so I won't tell all the details here (you can look for my prior posts if you are interested), but basically I drank a large amount of salt in water (not even good salt, but crappy table salt ). I was actually sick from this for about 3 days...completely swelled up with edema and bad aching pain in both kidneys (I had an active kidney infection or something similar at the time). I was so mad at myself because drinking the salt was not really intentional and I thought it might be dangerous...But after a few days, I actually felt much better than before the incident! It's nice to know that this is an real protocol...explains a lot! Thanks!
