The Secret Colon Cleansing Diet

Feb 23, 2008
Did you know that 50 percent of your immune system is found in or around the organs that make up your digestive system? This is why following a colon cleansing diet can be an excellent idea for your health and wellbeing.

When your colon becomes blocked bacteria and toxins are no longer able to be passed from your body. These toxins then build up over time and recycled back into your system causing them to affect other bodily organs. This leads to variety of symptoms including:

- General fatigue;
- Irritability;
- Insomnia;
- Headaches;
- Hemorrhoids;
- Menstrual problems;
- Backaches;
- Bloating;
- Constipation;
- Allergies;
- Skin problems.

Thankfully, there are a variety of ways that you can cleanse your colon. One of simplest is to follow a colon cleansing diet. If you are looking for a gentle colon cleanse, there is no need to follow complicate colon cleansing diets that you may find on the internet or in magazines.

Firstly, start to add more fibrous foods to you diet. Fiber expands in your intestines, pushing out the accumulated matter from your bowels. Fat tends to stick to your colon so reduce your intake of fat while boosting your intake of fruits and dark leafy vegetables. Priobiotics that are found in yogurt are an excellent way to destroy the any bad bacteria that has accumulated in your intestine.

The next part of your colon cleansing diet is to start to add specific drinks.

In a cup of hot water, dissolve a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and drink every second day. Blackstrap molassess produces a laxative effect and contains large amounts of calcium, iron and potassium. If you want a more mild drink, you can add a few tablespoons of aloe vera gel to some water or orange juice. Alternatively, mix some psyllium powder with water and consume each day.

You can also add some specific ingredients to you diet to help the cleanse along. These ingredients include grape juice, flaxseed, cayenne, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar.

While a colon cleansing diet will help many people, it is very much a mild approach to colon cleansing. You may need a more stronger cleanse and may find that consuming one of the many colon cleansing products that are available will be a much more beneficial approach. They come in the form of shakes, powders or capsules. Typically, these are more effective and work much more quickly than a colon cleansing diet. Many people also find that these colon cleansing products are easier and more convenient to follow as they don't have to bother as much about the foods they are consuming. It really depends on your body, personal preferences and life situation.

There are two broad categories of colon cleansing products. Oxygen based products are safe, scientifically formulated colon cleansers and are the most effective product on the market. Herb based colon cleansers are less effective but still can do an excellent job. If you want to try a colon cleansing product, make sure you do your research and investigate whether you are getting the best quality ingredients for your money.
