Cleansing the colon can also get rid of unwanted parasites that our bodies attract and harbor. These parasites usually come from insect bites, rare meat, vegetables that are not cleaned properly, pets and even through sexual activity. In fact, it’s more common and easier to pass on a parasite to your partner than it is to pass on a venereal disease.
Our body is designed for the bowels to move regularly after every meal. But in our western civilization, that’s a hard thing to do so we have trained our bodies to do so just once or twice a day. When our colons become backed up, then serious problems can develop. A toxic colon can lead to food intolerance and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Even though you may continue to have regular bowel movements, the waste can pass through the colon and still leave accumulated residue on the walls. A dirty colon can cause the muscles of the colon wall to lose tone, then ballooning or pouches can form causing diverticulosis. Food is trapped in these pouches and it becomes a breeding ground for disease.
So How To Clean Out The Colon?
A more gradual process will do the same thing, but you will begin to see improvements within a short period of time after starting the process. Skin problems disappear, chronic fatigue is alleviated, and the whites of the eyes regain their youthful clearness. The gradual process takes a period of several weeks, starting with eating raw food as 50 percent of the diet. By adding two teaspoonfuls of Metamucil or Citrucel, and drinking a lot of water, can get you started on your colon cleansing.
Water is an important part of the cleansing process. Some may think they shouldn’t drink a lot of water because they will retain fluids, but the opposite is true. The body retains the fluids because it isn’t getting enough fluid, and tries to hang on to whatever it gets. The recommendation is to drink around two quarts of water a day, while starting the day with at least a pint of hot water before breakfast.
There are excellent supplements and solutions which are now available that are designed specifically for colon cleansing. These usually now come in capsule form and are not expensive.
The greatest effect of a good colon cleansing is a positive feeling and energy that you get back. Reducing or eliminating the toxin buildup, which serves as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, also can result in a dramatic increasing in immunity from any type of infection, disease or sickness.
