Colon Cleanse With salt Water

Master Cleansing or Sankhaprakshalana 


The word Shankhaprakshalana comes from two words. Shankha meaning "conch" and prakshalana meaning to wash completely. The word shankha is used to represent the entire alimentary canal from mouth to anus. This practice is also known as "varisar dhouti". Shankhaprakshalana is the process to clean the intestinal tract by removing the impurities with salty water.

NOTE - No one should try this in absence of Yoga Guru and without advice of medical practitioner.
