Colon cleansing is the process of removing waste and toxins from the colon.
Before I ever completed a colon cleanse, fast, or detox diet, I thought this was a pretty weird thing to do. Why would I cleanse my colon? Doesn’t it clean itself?
The medical world hasn’t quite bought into the colon cleansing hype yet and many people are asking is it really necessary?
From my experience, colon cleansing is not only necessary, it’s the most important part of a healthy lifestyle.
When I completed my first herbal detox, I moved my bowels more a day than I ever had before. The results were that I lost weight, even though this was not a priority for me, my skin looked great, and I had way more energy.
Shortly after that I got my first colonic. During the procedure, I didn’t really notice much, but after the colonic, I went to the bathroom, and had the biggest release I ever had. The most disgusting part is that it was mostly mucous and very dark, almost black feces. Based on the look of it, this stuff had been in me for quite some time.
This didn’t look like a hoax to me. And it certainly didn’t feel like one either. I did a lot of research before getting my first colonic, and there were so many people who never got a colonic or did a fast or detox saying this was a hoax, fake, and not beneficial at all. I almost believed them, but then I thought I should try it for myself before judging.
I’m glad I did.
There’s so much that western medicine is just now starting to endorse that a subculture has been promoting and using to heal diseases for decades. Nutrition, exercise, acupuncture, and herbal medicine are just now being accepted as powerful forms of healing medicine.
So, I think it’s safe to say the medical field does not know everything. Medicine is a system of research, hypothesis, and experiments. Most times the research lags behind actual truth about what healing practices work and which ones don’t.
Information, the way we view the body, and how the body functions is still evolving. We’re still learning. In a world where there’s so much contradiction on how to heal the body, and people are constantly arguing about what works or what doesn’t work, individual experience is the best teacher.
In my individual experience, colon cleansing is vital to good health.
Our colons do cleanse themselves, however, I’ve noticed that when I’m eating lots of processed, unorganic foods high in fat, gluten, and sugar, my colon does not work as well. I have less bowel movements, my skin begins to take on the heavy load of cleansing, and my energy levels go down.
Focusing on cleaning my colon helps me refocus on y health, curb bad food cravings, and feel more vibrant.
There are several effective ways to clean your colon ranging from colonics to herbs to juice fasts. I’ve tried them all. I don’t have a favorite just different preferences for different needs.
3 Things a Colon Needs
When considering how to clean a colon, keep in mind that to operate at it’s best, a colon needs 3 things.
These 3 things include:
Any colon cleansing program should include lots and lots of water. Hydration is key to cleansing the colon. When the body is dehydrated, the colon is more likely to hold on to waste and not have what it needs to release bowels and toxins.
Oils, oils, and more oils does a colon good. Colons need omegas to keep toxins from adhering to the colon walls. Just like water, healthy fatty oils helps keep things moving the way they should. Fish, flaxseeds, and hemp seeds are just a few sources of omega fatty acids.
Bulk, also know as fiber, is so incredibly important. Fiber helps food move through your colon. It helps it bulk up and release from the colon. Fiber is super important in promoting bowel movements.
Colonics, fasts, and detox herbs and diets are all effective ways to detox the colon. However, as you decide on a specific way to clean your colon, make sure that it incorporates the three tips above. If you are well hydrated, and include lubrication and bulk, your colon will be in optimal shape to cleanse.
