As with most medical conditions, dietary changes and alternative medical practices, the response of each individual is unique. Although colon cleansing might have you feeling like a brand new person, full of energy and ready to tackle the world head on again, this does not mean that your best friend is going to experience the same feelings or have the same results as yourself.
Cleansing the colon naturally is as simple as eating foods which naturally aid the digestive process, are high in fibre and drinking lots of water. Or as complex as fasting for a period of time! Either way, you need to decide which method you want to follow, also ensure that you do consult your primary healthcare provider before embarking on any majorly intensive cleansing routines.
A simple cleansing fast:
Step 1: Stop eating solid foods. You can determine how long you want to fast for, and discuss this period of time with your primary healthcare practitioner before starting this process.
Step 2: Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of spring or filter water per day! Water is necessary to process fibre, it is also able to restore the function of the colon.
Step 3: Ensure that you consume at least 30grams of fibre per day. You could reach this minimum amount with fibre supplements which are dissolved in water as well as eating raw fruits and vegetables which are high in fibre.
Step 4: Purchase and take colon cleansing herbs from your local drugstore. Senna, Fennel, Garlic, Cascara Sagrada and Psyllium all have natural properties which remove the toxic wastes from the lining of the colon.
Step 5: Once you have stopped your fast, eat large amounts of onions, garlic and bananas. These products natural introduce probiotics (friendly bacteria) into the digestive tract and stimulate for natural colon cleansing. You could also find a good probiotic supplement to take whilst you are fasting and continue with the supplement once you have stopped fasting if you are unable to eat the correct amounts of the foods which produce the probiotics naturally.
You could also purchase a colon cleansing kit, which would have all the necessary supplements in it. Once you have done a colon cleansing routine, it is important that you eat healthily, exercise regularly and maintain a balanced lifestyle to stimulate colon health.
