Colon Cleansing: Essential Information

Aug 17, 2007
All across America people are waking up to the fact that the number of deaths due to colon-rectal cancer is now more than ever before. The cause for that can be attributed to various factors the chief being the lifestyle and eating habits of the Americans. With a diet that is chiefly based on high processed food the fiber content is almost nil. With no roughage, bowel movements are bound to become irregular.

If we have a look at the facts we will understand how alarming things are

- Of all countries United States of America have the most number of reported cases of colon-rectal cancers. And this is true for both categories of men and women.
- Any American who lives till the age of 40 is expected to develop diverticulosis more commonly known as herniated bowel pockets.

A variety of health problems can be attributed to unclear colons - from abdominal pain to constipation to general lack of energy all can be caused by an unhealthy bowel. That the bowel is unhealthy can be because of consumption of toxic substances regularly which would include caffeine, sugar, white flour, microwave-cooked food, hydrogenated fats and deep fried foods. All these food substances can lead to huge amounts of deposits in the colon which it is not able to deal with.

Our colon is made to handle anything between 5 to 25 pounds of waste matter at a time. But since our dietary habits and our lifestyle have gone through a significant change our colon often finds it difficult to deal with the huge accumulation that happens every day. Before it starts showing serious problems it is always a good idea to get our colon cleansed. This will ensure nothing serious happens in the long run and we can enjoy a fit and healthy body all our life.

It is therefore necessary to maintain a clean colon. The ideal way to tackle an unclean colon is to go for a colon cleansing. There are several methods available to us these days which can ensure that our colon is cleansed properly. These would include:

- Colon hydrotherapy
- Colon cleansing herbs
- Oxygen-based colon cleansing laxatives
- Regular laxatives practiced in conventional medicine

Once you have got your colon cleansed the next step would be to alter your regular diet. The normal diet we have is full of processed foods. So what we miss out on is fiber. Fiber actually helps to clean our system. Without enough of it, our bowels never quite become clear. So we must increase our fiber intake. It should be anything between 25-30 grams everyday. It can be either consumed dissolved in water or with your food.

Water is another critical element in getting your colon clean. Drink at least three liters of water every day.
