Sea Salt Flush

The sea salt flush is a popular remedy used to remove toxins from the body. Some people claim it also helps relieve fatigue and aids in losing weight.

Fill a 200 ml glass with warm water. Stir in ½ teaspoon sea salt and two drops lime/lemon juice. You should drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Drink 2 glasses every morning for 3 to 5 days. It’s best to drink this on days you will not be going out for at least 5 hours. After 15 to 20 minutes you will be visiting the bathroom to relieve yourself. The visits can last between 1 to 2 hours and sometimes longer. You should do the sea salt water flush once every 2 or 3 months.

Sea Salt Steam

Steam your face once a week with hot sea salt water. This will clear your nasal passages and remove any blockage which leads to phlegm, migraines and colds.

Fill a bowl with 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt. Fill the bowl ½ full with boiling water. Lean over it and inhale the steam. Cover your head and the bowl with a towel to prevent the steam from escaping.

Sea Salt Body Scrub

Sea Salt is a popular body scrub since it gets rid of dead cells and roughness from the skin leaving it soft and supple. Some people also use it to treat skin diseases like psoriasis.

Mix ½ cup sea salt with ¼ cup olive oil. Use this during your shower. Wet the skin and put some of the scrub onto a loofah and apply on the body massaging the areas in circular motions. Rinse off with warm water. Use this scrub once a week.

* Never use table salt in place of sea salt since table salt contains iodine and when consumed in excess amounts is unhealthy for the body.

Homemade Green Tea Ginger for a Healthy Liver and Weight Loss

Are you suffering from belly fat?
Have you tried exercising, dieting and even pills but none of them worked?
One reason could be that your liver cells have accumulated too much fat.
When we consume meals having more fat than our body can handle, the extra fat ends up in the liver. This can trigger the appearance of fat in the belly, thighs, arms and legs.
Abdominal fat is one of the hardest to lose. Stubborn abdominal fat must first be loosened before it can be removed from the body. 
Two ways this can be done is to sip about 4 glasses of water upon wakening up in the morning and to also drink 2 cups of green tea with ginger slices twice a day.

Home Remedies to Get Rid of Warts and Moles

Warts and moles are two separate skin problems and not the same as some people think.

A person gets warts by direct skin contact with a person who has it. 
Warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). The virus’s entry point is any area of the surface of the skin which has a cut or abrasion. It enters through the broken skin and settles there. The virus then grows and forms a wart.
There are over 100 types of warts and the common ones are:
Common wart – found on hands and fingers
Plantar warts or foot warts - found on the soles of the feet
Flat warts – common amongst children and can be found in clusters of 20 to 100 on the forehead, the neck, arms and hands. Women also get it on their legs.
