Yes! You can Clean your Colon!

Okay, so it’s not exactly like cleaning your windows, and I know it’s not the most comfortable topic to talk about, but it’s a lot more uncomfortable when it becomes a real issue.

It is important that you understand what the colon is and how to care for it.  You see, the primary function of the colon, which makes up most of the large intestine, is to rid the body of waste.  If you think about a laundry chute that is plugged up, nothing moves down it, right?  You can stand at the bottom of it while someone puts a bag of laundry at the top and you won’t see it come down.  It just gets stuck!  Well, you might be surprised to know that most people are walking around with a colon in which undigested food and fecal matter are “stuck” and you can imagine that it isn’t a pretty sight.

It’s true.  The average person in the United States has between 6 and 12 pounds of waste sitting in their colon and many have 20 pounds or more!  Some have up to 40 pounds!  Can you imagine having that much waste material sitting in your colon?  Imagine how great it would be to have those extra pounds just disappear.  Now think about what that waste is doing while it is sitting there.  It is releasing toxins and those toxins have nowhere to go except through the wall of your colon and into your bloodstream.  That’s why you want to have a clean colon?

The main culprit when it comes to a clogged colon is the large amount of refined food that most people eat.  I use to be one of those people.  I ate large amounts of pizza, pasta, and other carbohydrates and I didn’t eat a lot of whole grains or veggies.  I was hurting my body from the inside out.
Another reason people’s colons become so clogged is because of the meat they eat.  Meat takes a long time to digest and break down in the human body and it can end up rotting in the colon for days and even weeks or months.  Add to that the fact that most people don’t eat nearly enough fiber from plant foods and you have a recipe for disaster.

So let’s talk about colon cleansing.  The first way to cleanse the colon is by simply eating high-fiber foods.  You can start cleaning out the colon and the rest of the body by eating loads of naturally fibrous plant food, particularly greens, veggies, and low sugar fruits.  This way you know what is going into your body and you will typically see an improvement within just a few days.

Now, while this is the most natural way to clean the colon and keep it clean, some people need a little more help so using a colon cleansing product is also highly effective.

These are generally made up of natural ingredients and most are safe to use short term if you don’t have other intestinal issues.  Psyllium Husk is gentle and if you take the capsules, it is very effective if you follow it with warm water.

You can find them in health food stores and natural food sections in some of the big stores.  They come in capsules or a powder that you mix with a beverage and then – bottoms up!

Another way to cleanse the colon is through colonics.  This method of colon cleansing is when the colon is manually flushed with water to remove built-up waste.  Colonics are gaining in popularity and there is a good reason for it.  It works and afterward you simply feel great.  I have colonics done on a regular basis and I can say that there is nothing like it.

Whatever way you choose to have your colon cleansed, please ensure you do it on a regular basis.  Remember that 70% of your immune system is in your colon and that a clean colon truly improves the state of your health.  So go for colon cleansing and enjoy that fresh lighter feeling!
