Signs that your colon is in need of a cleanse are common to all of us. Gas, constipation, bloated stomach, fatigue and headaches can all be associated with a colon that requires detox. Cleansing is a smart way to approach overall improvement to your health. The following steps list different colon cleansing processes. Choose one that makes sense to you.
Things You'll Need
- 64 ounces of water daily
Colon cleansing systems: There are numerous companies that provide food substitute cleansing diets, such as powder shakes. These provide your body with essential nutrients while limiting the intake of raw digestibles. A prescribed multi-day program and eating schedule will come with the products. The media has documented these programs to be very effective at rapid weight loss, increased energy and improved bowel function.
Colonic irrigation: Yes, this includes a tube in the rectum, no need to go into details. Importantly, this is not a horrific experience and anyone is capable of doing this. The tube delivers purified water into the colon and loosens "impacted" fecal matter that your colon has not been able to pass. Some people feel as if they have washed out little rocks.
Natural colon cleansing: If you are uncomfortable with an aggressive cleansing program or colonic irrigation, then use what ancient civilizations cleansed with. Plenty of water, 64 ounces per day, and a high fiber diet. Take a couple of tea spoons of Metamucil and eat with yogurt each day and include plenty of fruits and vegetables with your meals. You will need to follow this plan over several weeks to gain the cleansing benefits.
Nobel Prize winning microbiologist, Elie Metchnikoff, was quoted as saying "death begins in the colon". He must have been on to something. Your colon deals with all toxins that enter your body and the less efficient your colon is working, the more chances the toxins have to enter your system permanently.
