Herbal Ways to Conduct a Colon Cleanse

Sep 3, 2008
Herbs can be used for colon cleansing and to help maintain a clean colon.

Chinese medicine has advocated herbal remedies since ancient times and recently, many of the benefits of Chinese herbal medicine have been proven in Western medicine clinical studies, including the benefits of certain herbs for digestive system health. The native Chinese diet also contains a lot more fiber than our American diet. This also helps digestion and elimination.

There are many herbal colon cleansing products on the market. Some are teas, some come in supplement form. Some are meant to be used alone when fasting, some are meant to be used in conjunction with a restricted diet during the colon cleansing process. Today, you can even get custom-blended formulas from some doctors of Chinese medicine that are made specifically for you and your digestive system.

When choosing what kind of herbal colon cleanse you want to try, make sure it is for colon cleansing, not for other types of internal cleansing. These may be good to use as well, but do not use them in conjunction with a colon cleansing product, or plan, unless advised to do so by your doctor.

To get the most out of an herbal colon cleanse continue to eat a colon-friendly diet. This means you should eat a diet that has little red meat or animal fat in it. These foods are slow to process through your digestive system as are cheese and other dairy products, except yogurt. Yogurt aids in digestion because it contains live, good bacteria that we need in our intestinal tract. You can also take a probiotic supplement which helps provide these good bacterium to our system with every meal. Also eliminate as much processed food, including fast food, from your diet as you can.

You should also add fiber to your diet to help keep your colon healthy. Fibrous fruits such as pears and apples are good, so are beans of most any kind. Whole grain breads are okay, too. You can also add flaxseed to your smoothies for an extra boost of fiber every day.

If you aren't sure if you really need a full colon cleanse, you are probably already eating a pretty colon-friendly diet. If this is the case, add colon cleansing herbs and supplements to ensure a healthy colon. If you encounter a week where you just cannot eat like you should, these herbs and supplements will help your digestive system stay on track.

One of the herbs I take regularly for its colon cleansing properties is ginger. I eat it in crystallized form and drink it as a tea. For me, it is soothing to my stomach and helps keep my system regular, even if I stray from a healthy diet for a few days. Talk to your primary care physician and alternative medicine doctor about how ginger and other herbs can benefit you. Be sure to mention that you are interested in colon cleansing herbs and diets. Then pick the herbal colon cleanse that is right for you.
