Colon Cleanse

Why colon cleanse? The colon or large intestine’s major job is to absorb water from indigestible food, compact it into waste material (feces) and pass it from the body through the anus.

As the undigested food moves through the colon, bacteria (also called micro-flora or flora) that live in the colon feed on the material, producing vitamins like vitamin K and vitamin B, which are absorbed into the bloodstream.

Waste can build up on the wall of the colon which will compromise its ability to perform its job properly. The buildup of waste also becomes toxic to the body and the toxins are released back into the bloodstream.

The buildup of waste is greatly influenced by eating a lot of food, processed food that doesn’t contain a lot of fiber, and a diary. This can put a lot of stress on the muscles of the small intestine and the colon, causing them to overwork and weaken the walls of the intestine.

This can result in pouches called diverticulum that catch on hold on to waste. Overtime the collected waste becomes toxic, and the weakened intestine can lead to irregular bowel movements and added weight.

People can retain 20 or more pounds of old putrid fecal matter in these pockets, which many experts believe is a leading cause of illnesses in the body because it puts an immense strain on the immune system.

Colonic Colon Cleanse

The main thing the colon needs for healthy functioning is fiber! Most of us need more fiber in our diets. We need to consume more whole-food plant based life in the form of vegetables, fruits, and grains.

To keep the colon clean of impacted fecal matter we need to eat more fiber, but we will also need some assistance in first addressing this built up waste. I did a colonic colon cleanse and I had excellent results with it.

Colonics use substances that can break apart the putrefied material and move it out of the body. I have found that most colonics use a combination of bentonite clay, to pull the waste and toxins out of the diverticula, and psyllium husk, a dietary fiber and laxative, to move the toxic waste out of the body.

Colonics are a great way to remove the built up waste, but they won’t stop the waste from building up again. We need to food with a lot of fiber in it, like vegetables, fruits, nuts, and legumes, to bulk up the stool and drink plenty of water so it it easier for the intestine to move the waste out of the body.

A plant based diet is an excellent way to add fiber and eliminate food that causes waste buildup, and a plant based diet supports healthy living.

Enemas are useful in assisting the colonic colon cleanse because they act as a colon flush and wash the putrefied waste out of the colon.

Colon Cleanse: Removing Parasites From The Colon

I know it sounds yucky, but we do have them. Parasites do live in humans. The good thing is we can get rid of parasites.

We can use enemas to assist in the removal of waste during a colon cleanse, and adding garlic enema is an excellent way to kill parasites living in the colon at the same time.

Intestinal parasites cause diarrhea, abdominal pain, gas, bloating, weight loss and other symptoms, and a garlic enema can kill parasites and help alleviate these symptoms.

Boil 1 quart of water and then remove from fire. Add in 3-6 crushed garlic cloves (Vary the amount between 3 and 6 cloves depending on how strong you can take the mixture). Let the garlic steep for an hour. Once the water has cooled to a temperature where it doesn't burn you, add the garlic water to an enema bag and apply the enema.

Herbs to Kill Parasites

  • Cloves: Cloves contain a very strong germicidal agent, which works very effectively in killing adult parasites and their larvae (roundworms and flatworms).
  • Coconut Oil: Expels or kills tapeworms, lice, giardia, and other parasites.
  • Papain enzymes: Enzymes from papayas used to kill parasites
  • Black Walnut: Traditional herbal remedy used to kill parasites
  • Wormwood: Is traditional herbal remedy used to expell roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms

Black walnut-wormwood complex is used specifically to kill parasites. I use papain enzymes to clean my small intestines, and also to kill parasites.

I drink tablespoons of coconut oil and I cook with because is has antiviral properties and it also expels parasites from the body.
