Stay Healthy with Colon Cleansing
Why should I get my colon cleansed? Consider what function your colon serves in the body; it is a waste disposal system, much like a sewer system. Our colons are designed to carry toxic waste out of our bodies in a timely fashion. If they get partially blocked, they can back up just like a municipal sewer system. This can cause a continuous full feeling, bloating, gas, flatulence, and irregular bowel movements. Colon cleansing can get your internal sewer system back to its regular self.
Fecal matter backs up in the colon by sticking to its walls and collecting in pockets in your colon. As this fecal matter ages, it breeds more toxins. These toxins leach back into our body and can create a multitude of health problems. Studies have shown that between seventy-five to ninety percent of all illnesses, including many cancers, can be traced back to problems that started in the colon. By keeping your colon clean, you can help keep the rest of your body healthy.
Symptoms that an unhealthy colon can cause include:
• Irregular bowel movements
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
• Difficulty or inability to lose weight
• A “spaced-out” feeling or lack of focus
• Joint pain and stiffness
• Hemorrhoids due to excess strain in passing hard stools
• Blemishes and acne
• Halitosis (Yes, chronic bad breath can be a symptom of an unhealthy colon!)
Colon cleansing can help eliminate the symptoms above that make your life uncomfortable and keep you from developing other, more serious problems. A colon cleanse followed by a colon-friendly diet will get you and your colon on the way to better health.
So what is a colon-friendly diet? A colon-friendly diet is one that helps your colon cleanse itself. It’s a diet that allows your colon to maintain itself by passing healthy waste regularly. It should include fiber and probiotics. Fiber can be added to your diet with fibrous fruits and veggies, beans, and food supplements like flaxseed that you can add to smoothies and such. Your colon-friendly diet should eliminate refined sugar, red meat, animal fat, and heavily processed foods including most fast foods and many restaurant meals. Your diet should also eliminate dairy products with the exception of yogurt. Yogurt actually has living, good-for-your-colon bacteria in it.
A colon cleanse is a good thing to consider if you want to improve the health of your colon. But colon cleansing is not recommended for everyone. Persons with diverticulitis, Crohn’s Disease, and other bowel ailments should consult their doctor before undergoing a colon cleanse. You should also consult your pharmacist or doctor about taking any herbal colon cleansing products. Some herbs change the absorption of prescription drugs.
