Clean Your Colon By Changing Your Diet

Jan 18, 2008
Nowadays, a large number of common diseases and ailments are caused by the improper functioning of organs in the gastro intestinal tract especially the intestines. While many ailments like constipation, diarrhea, acidity, gastritis, bloating, flatulence and rectal discomfort can be directly associated to a colon that is blocked with toxic wastes and mucoid plaque.

There are many other ailments like headaches, nausea, depression, backaches, acne and weight gain which are also caused because of an overloaded colon that is not functioning properly. Therefore, it is important to clean your internal organs starting from the colon and progressing to the liver and the stomach in order to lead a healthy life. A colon full of waste not only leads to diseases; it also prevents the proper absorption of nutrients from food into the body, thus making us deficient in essential vitamins and minerals.

There are various methods to clean your colon naturally. The most elementary and natural way to clean your colon is by changing your diet to include not just healthy food, but healthy food habits as well. While there are number of methods of cleaning the colon through supplements and other alternative means, you can clean your colon simply by changing your diet to include the best kinds of food for your body. Our body has been made to eat and digest a diet that is high in fiber and low in fat, with a good amount of complex carbohydrates thrown in for energy. However, our diets today are generally composed of foods that are high in fat and sugar content, full of additives and almost nil in fibers. Therefore, in order to clean your internal organs and your colon, you should start taking a diet that is full of fiber and complex carbs while being low in fat, sugar and additive content.

Some of the main diet changes that you might need to incorporate in order to clean your colon are:

1. Include large amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Vegetables are best to eat raw, otherwise steam them or eat them with a minimal amount of cooking. These foods are not just rich in fiber, which will improve your digestive process, but are also key sources of all the essential vitamins and minerals that are required for a healthy body.

2. In order to increase the fiber content in your diet, incorporate fiber rich cereals in the form of bran, cereal, muesli and brown bread in your diet. Try to eat only whole grain cereals as much as possible.

3. Reduce your meat intake by at least half while doubling your consumption of vegetables. Start having salads and juices with every meal. Make sure that the juices are unsweetened and the salads made with a dressing that is either fat free or very low in fat content.

4. Try to cut down on sugar, processed foods, diary products, fat, tea, coffee, colas, processed and canned juices and alcohol while increasing your intake of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Drink at least four liters of water per day if your really want your colon cleansing diet to work.
