What Are The Best Colon Cleansing Methods?

Feb 15, 2008
Nowadays, one of the most common detoxifying treatments recommended by natural health practitioners is colon cleansing. This is not surprising, given that the colon is extremely important in maintaining health and wellbeing. When the colon becomes clogged, bacteria and toxins begin to collect inside your digestive system because they can no longer be removed from your body through the normal digestive process. These toxins are then recycled back in to your system, affecting other parts of your body and continuing to accumulate over time. As a result, a blocked colon can lead to many problems, such as a bloating, acid reflux, asthma, allergies, constipation and diarrhoea.

Fortunately, there are several colon cleansing methods and products you can use to remove hardened waste, bacteria and toxins from your colon. However, not all methods or products are the same, and the wealth of conflicting information can make it difficult in deciding what the best colon cleansing methods are for your body and situation. I know this because I receive many emails asking me, what are the best colon cleansing methods?

One of the best colon cleansing methods - and also the most simple - is too simply make adjustments to your diet. You can begin by eating more foods containing lots of fibre, which aid in pushing the hardened waste from your colon. At the same time, reduce your intake of fat (which can slow and clog up matter within the colon) while increasing your consumption of fruits and dark leafy vegetables. Priobiotics found in yogurt are also an excellent way to add good bacteria in your bowls to combat the bad bacteria which has become trapped along with the waste.

To being a laxative effect, you can try adding a few tablespoons of aloe vera gel to water or orange juice, or drink psyllium powder mixed with water. Other foods you can try making drinks with or from include grape juice, flaxseed, cayenne, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.

Of all the best colon cleansing methods, the most effective is to use a colon cleansing product. These are products specially designed and formulated to cleanse your colon quickly and easily, without worrying about the hassle of dietary changes. The best colon cleansing products are either drinks, powders or capsules fall in to two categories: oxygen based and herb based.

Oxygen based products are typically the most effective and are usually considered the best colon cleansing products. They are scientifically formulated, with the oxygen and magnesium ingredients slowly liquefying the stool and removing the bacteria along with it.

The second type, herb based products, usually contained herbs such as aloe vera leaf, cascara sagrada bark, ginger root and peppermint leaf. These herbs have been used for centuries in aiding and soothing digestion, removing toxins from the body and creating laxative effect.

One word of warning, however - not all of these products are created equal. You should research any product you are interested in thoroughly to ensure that you are receiving quality ingredients and manufacturing.
