Colon Cleanse



A colon cleanse is a way to remove a lot of toxic congestion from our bowels that has built up through poor diet, exposure to infected food, additives and inadequate exercise.


This toxic build-up coats the interior walls and lining of your colon until the layer is so thick that your body cannot absorb all the nutrients that it needs. You have to eat more and more so that your bowel can scavenge what it needs. You get fatter as a simple result of having to eat excessively to get essential nutrients.


This toxic build-up is relatively new in the world of medicine and human anatomy, having its origin in the newer synthetic foods, preservatives, and chemically-enhanced materials now found in foods after the 1960s.


You may be very surprosed at how effective a colon cleanse can be.

It will provide the following key benefits


  • Increased energy Your metabolism is often suppressed by poor food absorption and infection.
  • Instant Weight loss You will find it hard to believe how much undigested and infected matter as well as parasites that can build up. A healthy colon weighs in at only 4 pounds but diseased colons have been removed that weighed nearly 40 pounds (including contents).
  • Long Term Weight loss as you need to eat less to get essential nutrients.


The colon cleanse will probably reduce or even eliminate some of the following symptoms if you are experiencing them:


  • Bowel problems - gas, diarrhea, constipation or irregularity.
  • Bad breath & indigestion.
  • Food allergies and intolerance, especially to fatty foods.
  • Headaches.
  • Aching bones and muscles, especially the back.
  • Susceptibility to colds, flu and infections.
  • Sinus problems like rhinitis.
  • Bloating.
  • Hemorrhoids.

Poor diet tends to create two immediate problems:

  • Build up of mucoid plaque. Your body produces a mucus that lines the walls of the intestines to protect them and limit the absorption of more toxic foods. Normally this should just slough off, but poor diet and inactivity leaves this mucus to build up and solidify. This in turn causes blockages and slows the flow of food through the intestines.
  • Build up of poorly digested food. Most people through their diets and obstructions are holding about 8 meals in their bowels when they should only be holding 3. It should take 8 hours for a meal to pass completely through your digestive system. For many it is taking days.

These cause the following problems


  • Poor absorption of food The walls of the bowels can become encrusted with mucoid plaque that is impenetrable. The tissue can also become infected.
  • Diverticulosis The colon wall becomes deformed and creates a kind of pouch that becomes fills with trapped food. This often becomes infected.
  • Prolapsed colon The walls of the colon collapse so that they obstruct the free flow of food.

These problems almost certainly contribute to the following


  • Bowel cancer
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn's disease

The idea of the colon cleanse is to eat certain foods that will:

  • Loosen, dissolve or bind onto the mucoid plaque and other infected waste and allow it to be excreted safely from your body.
  • Allow the normal muscle contractions (the peristaltic waves) to move digested food through the bowels, normally, as nature intended.
  • Heal any damage that may have occurred internally and to reduce any inflammation.

The following ingredients make a good colon cleansing product. They are totally natural products like herbs, spices and seeds.


  • Fruit and vegetables diet This is an initial diet, not one you have to stick to, that will help the movement through your bowels.
  • Bentonite clay Forms a kind of gel that absorbs various chemical toxins as it passes through.
  • Psyllium Taken as ground seeds.
  • Cascara Sagrada An aged bark.
  • Flax seeds Absorb toxins and bind to mucoid plaque to help their removal. Take a tablespoon of ground seeds in water with breakfast.
  • Probiotics Not an essential ingredient for the actual cleanse but helps to restore the natural gut bacteria.

There are a number of other cleansing ingredients that you might find. You can safely and easily mix these up yourself in equal parts. Do not take these if you suffer from colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease.


  • Ginger
  • Fennel
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Ginger rhizome
  • Barberry root bark
  • Curacao and Cane Aloe leaf
  • Senna leaves
  • Turkey Rhubarb
  • Willow charcoal
  • Apple fruit pectin

Always drink plenty of water with any colon cleanse. At least an extra 1.5 litres (3 pints) a day.the colon cleanse should take about one month, but if you are still seeing results at the end of that month you might want to extend it. You should not need more than 4 months for a complete colon cleanse.
