As humans we have been living with bacteria and parasites since the beginning of time. Parasites are organisms that live off of other organisms. Bacteria are tiny living organisms (microorganisms) and can be found in almost every environment that has not been sterilized. In ancient times, people believed that salt could kill parasites and parasites. This is still true, however there are specific kinds of salt that do so, and to be effective, specific ways that the salt must be used and applied.
Things You'll Need
- Sea salt
- Pure salt
- Hot water bottle with strap
For parasites and bacteria that lie within the body, consider doing a salt water colon cleanse or enema. Fill a hot water bottle with warm water and then apply a few tbsp. of sea salt or pure salt.
Place the strap in the anus and gently squeeze the hot water bottle so that it flushes the anus area clean. You would want to stand in a bath tub or shower while doing this so that the excess water has somewhere to go.
You can also drink salt water to kill internal parasites and bacteria. Simply fill an 8 oz. glass with warm water and add 1 or 2 tsp. of sea salt or pure salt. Stir until salt blends with water. But be sure to drink more than 8 glasses of regular water if you want to the treat the bacteria and parasites using this method.
For parasites and bacteria that are living externally on the body, a saltwater bath might do the trick. Fill a bath tub with warm water and apply a few tbls. of salt to the bath water. Sit in the tub and soak the body for up to 30 minutes.
While showering or bathing in saltwater, you may also want to wipe the body down with a wet rag that has been sprinkled with sea salt or pure salt. Make sure to get every limb and really scrub the skinto remove the bacteria and parasites.
