How to Do a Colon Cleanse

Leave a reply »

In an ideal world you wouldn’t need to cleanse your colon because you would be fishing out of pure mountain streams, picking berries off shrubs and drinking fresh spring water. Unfortunately the foods we buy from the supermarket often have to travel half way around the world and are filled with chemicals to extend their shelf life. Not only that but many of the nutrients are then killed through cooking and the use of fat, salt and sugar.

It’s no wonder that people in the West are so unhealthy. The chemicals and toxins found in our food are absorbed into our bodies so in order to eliminate them we need regular bowl movements. If you haven’t been eating plenty of fresh fruit and veg along with fiber the chances are that your body simply can’t eliminate all the toxins as well as it used to. Toxins can therefore build up over the years causing your colon to be blocked.

If you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, lethargy, constipation or gas then the chances are that you have a clogged colon. The constipation adds to the severity of the problem. The colon is blocked and can’t get rid of the toxins which leads to more constipation, a loop that is difficult to break.

You’ve got a number of options when cleansing the colon. The easiest and gentlest way is to drink plenty of water, green tea is great too. This will help flush away all the horrible stuff in your colon such as old fecal matter, mucus and half-digested food. If you have a particularly blocked colon then drinking water may not be 100% effective.

There’s other colon cleansing treatments of herbal laxatives, teas, and homeopathic remedies. You can do your colon a great favour by allowing it to rest. You can do this by drinking water, fresh juices and raw food, allowing your colon to process the old food rather than dealing with any new food.

Then there’s colon enemas. This is probably not something you should attempt at home, instead look out for a local salon which offers colonic irrigation. This is because if it’s not done correctly, the solution can be absorbed by the intestines and have catastrophic results.

When you’re colon has been cleansed then you should continue to avoid processed food such as bread and cakes and continue to include fruit, vegetables and water in your diet.

    Colon cleansing can be a very effective in removing the toxins from your body. But there are so many people who make mistakes with colon cleansing. Some uses harsh products and they don’t know that these products can hurt their overall health. It’s better if they go with the natural way. One good example is exercising that produces large amount of sweat. It is very effective in facilitating toxin elimination.

  3. A new breakthrough secret is all you now need in order to forever shed countless pounds, stay healthy, and add many years to your life!

    Over the course of six years an Arizona doctor developed a number of natural treatments for the removal of these harmful, even life-threatening plaques and rapidly reproducing digestive parasites — and when applied to even worse-case patients suffering extreme obesity (98% of which were in immediate danger of dying) she saw a 100% effectiveness and success rate.

    She then borrowed from her research on the severely obese, and applied the same strategies on milder cases of overweight persons — only to find the same effectiveness and quality results as described above (although the individual weight loss per subject wasn’t nearly as much as those obese patients 100 lbs to 200 lbs or more overweight).

    So powerful is her secret that she’s able to reverse diabetes, rid illness altogether in people suffering from cancer (linked directly to poor diet and overweight factors), as well as an elimination of an entire spectrum of serious and otherwise life-threatening diseases.

    Nearly 100% of all her case subjects were told in the alternative by “conventional doctors” that they either had just months or years to live, or they would never live a life anything resembling remotely a “normal” existence — yet after applying Dr Suzanne’s treatments saw a complete contradiction to others doctors’ prognoses.

    Nothing about her secret is unnatural or requires someone to do any major action or modification in their lives. Her entire treatment is based completely on built-into-nature ‘protection agents’ scattered throughout the world in the form of select herbs, extracts, and organic constituents, and which can be found in a variety of plants — but when combined in specific combinations and carefully chosen amounts make for a solution to what is perhaps the world’s worst ever plague: OBESITY (and the illnesses and diseases resulting from it — or at least severely aggravated or exacerbated by it).

    Her findings are currently available at:


    It’s in a very easily readable format and is quickly and readily understood and mastered by anyone with even a 4th grade reading level.

    While you’re there, why not scroll down and review for yourself the huge successes others are now having with this incredible breakthrough in rapid, massive weight loss and extremely improved and enhanced health, now made freely available to the rest of us?

  4. My whole family are following a GAPS diet which is primarily aimed at cleansing the colon by populating the gut with lots of probiotics, juicing and taking bone broth soups. It really has helped our family treat a range of digestive disorders ranging from Diverticulitis to GERD. As an added bonus we have all lost weight!
