7 Effective Homemade Colon Cleansing Diet

May 20, 2008
There are many different homemade colon cleansing diets in the market. These are also called the eliminative diets which are the most common diets and simple to use. All of them achieve almost the same results through feeding the body with less and simple foods, in simple combinations and with more liquids.

The following are the 7 effective homemade colon cleansing diet. Whichever methods you choose, it's important that you take sufficient rest and exercise.

1. Bulk Diet: Intestinal Cleanser/Detoxification
There are many bulk in the markets which can be purchased in organic shops. These are good elimination diet but you must follow directions as indicated. If you have already had a sluggish bowel, you may need to do an enema or a Colema cleansing to help move your bowel. You may take fruits, vegetable or fruit juices once in mid morning and afternoon to help elimination.

2. Chlorophyll Diet:
This is a diet using 1 teaspoon liquid chlorophyll into a glass of water (preferably distilled) in every 3 hours. Chlorophyll has high level of iron to attract oxygen to your body to neutralize toxic wastes. This is a master-cleansing diet for all catarrhal problems. You may use this diet for 3-4 days prior to fasting or any other kinds of diet to remove catarrhal conditions effectively.

3. Carrot Juice Diet:
This diet is taking one glass of carrot juice every 1.5 hours for a week, 10 days or for a month as you like. It helps in the elimination of mucus and catarrh from the bowel. However, carrot juice alone is not a whole and perfect food and hence, you need to get off of it at a certain time.

4. Watermelon Flush:
This is good for cleansing of the kidneys and you may be on it for 4-5 days. It helps to eliminate debris and toxic materials from the bowel effectively.

5. Grapes Diet:
It is advisable to use grapes with seeds, using approximately 4 pounds a day, and average of 1 pound every 3 hours, for about 5-10 days. You may chew its seeds and skins. Grape skins has high potassium-a great cleanser and detoxifier in the body. It is best work with a colema wash.

6. Potato Peeling Broth:
This broth has high potassium which is efficient for neutralizing long accumulated acidic and toxic wastes in the body, as in arthritis and rheumatism. Dosage is 2 cups/day for 1-2 months along with your regular diet.

7. Herbal Teas:
All herbal teas are useful. You may use parsley tea or juniper berries tea for kidneys, peppermint tea or chamomile tea for stomach problems, comfrey or fenugreek tea for lungs congestions, flaxseed tea for inflammation and irritation in the bowel and stomach ulcer.

It is important to note that the above are diets for detoxification and are not diets for you to be on all the time. You must get OFF these diets and get back to a healthy way of living. For those with severe constipation and sluggish bowel tone, you may still need physical washing of the colon using enema, colema or colon hydrotherapy. These diets can be a great support to enhance these cleansing therapies.
