Colon Cleansing – Why Cleanse The Colon?

Colon cleansing is vitality important to healthy living because impacted waste in the colon not only weakens the colon it also helps to spread toxins throughout the body.

The colon’s job is to compact waste moving into to from the small intestine, and then move it out of the body.

Before the unwanted material is finally moved out of the body micro-flora, which are helpful bacteria, feed on the waste material and produce vitamin B and vitamin K and these vitamin are absorbed back into the bloodstream.

The colon removes harmful waste from the body and also introduces vital nutrients into the body.

Colon cleansing becomes necessary when poop is not moved through the colon efficiently which then compromises the colon’s ability to work effectively. This is often caused by a lack of fiber in the diet.

A lack of fiber results in waste that doesn’t have enough bulk. The lack of bulk causes the muscles in the intestine walls to overwork to move the waste through, and the intestine wall eventually weakens.

When the muscles overwork it leads to disease called diverticulitis and diverticulum or pouches form in the intestine walls. These pouches then collect waste and trap it in the pouches. Overtime the built up waste becomes toxic, destroys the intestine wall, leak toxins into the bloodstream, and adds weight to the body.

Colon cleansing becomes necessary because these conditions compromise the immune system and cause illness in the body.

I personally don’t think a colon flush, also called colon irrigation, by itself is highly effectively in deeply cleansing the colon. It is more effective than a simple enema only because it involves releasing more water into the colon, which helps to clear out more lose waste.

The colon irrigation colon cleansing method is effective is removing the “top layer” of waste the lines the colon, but this colon cleansing method is not as effective in removing the waste from pouches, and waste impacted onto the intestine wall.

Colon cleansing in the form of colonics address the impacted waste and the waste in the pouches more effectively. When I did a colon cleansing at home I used a product that contained bentonite clay and psyllium husk to remove the hard to remove waste.

Bentonite clay is used in colon cleansing to stick to and pull the waste out of the diverticulum and out of the intestine wall. The psyllium husk is a dietary fiber and laxative that moves the putrified waste out of the body.

I did this colon cleansing method for three days but the longer the cleanse is done, the deeper the cleanse will be. There are fourteen and twenty-eight day colon cleanses from the manufacturers of the product I listed. You can purchase this colon cleansing colonics buy clicking the link image I posted.

Doing this colon cleansing at home for just three days, my stomach became flatter, I lost weight, I felt much lighter, and I felt much more energized. I felt like a weight was taken of of my shoulders.

Doing the colon irrigation after the colonic is helpful because it will help remove the residue waste left over by the colonic. Also, cleansing the intestines of intestinal parasites using a garlic enema assists the colon cleansing process.

This feeling lasted for a while but afterwards as I continued to eat foods that brought toxins back into my body, my old tired self came back. I now see using the colon cleansing colonic as an excellent way to jumpstart the overall body cleanse and not an means to an end.

Doing this colon cleanse while making lifestyle changes that involves adopting a colon cleansing diet is the way to go. A diet that includes increasing the amount of whole-food plant based life eaten, while reducing or removing meat, dairy, and processed foods.

A whole-food plant based diet removes the clogging animal protein, fat, and mucus, and is a high fiber diet that cleans the colon. A plant based diet is a colon cleansing diet.
