Colon Cleansing Essentials

Updated on October 1, 2014

Colon Cleanse

Colon cleansing is the first step in helping your body rid itself of toxins and other non-essential baggage. There's also the subject of absorption; this is another matter that is not talked about as much as needed.

Throwing Money Down the Drain (Toilet)

They say the United States has the most expensive urine in the world, you know why? It's because of all the pharmaceutical drugs we take and how a good percentage of them go right through us. This is due to poor absorption.

Absorption starts in your colon, and if the walls of your colon are not working efficiently working to process liquids, then you can expect that your absorption efficiency will also suffer. The question then is, what happens to what doesn't get absorbed? Most of it get disposed of through our waste - urine or stool. This is why the U.S. has the distinct honor of having the worlds most valuable urine.

I do a Colon Cleansing about every 6 months.

I know Doctors don't address this situation and I was surprised to see that even some health food sites don't address this issue.

To put it in simple terms - whatever you eat or drink needs to be absorbed or it will eventually be passed through and discarded.

Toxins Settling in the Colon

The other health issue concerning your colon is elimination.

When your colon is not functioning properly toxins can accumulate in that area and create long-term health problems.

If you haven't done a colon cleanse, expect to see some unsettling things coming out from the process. If you search the web for pictures of blocked colons, you'll see some pretty nasty stuff hanging around there.

Most people experience weight loss and improved energy after their first cleansing. You won't know the difference until you actually experience the difference. The slowdown in your system happened over time and we forget how it feels to be in good health.

Improving Digestion

There's a little trick you can use to start your digestive juices flowing before food hits your stomach. Take a touch of salt on your finger and put it on your tongue. This will activate the digestive juices in your stomach and as they say "get the fire started." You should also try to drink beverages without ice with your meals. They say the cold liquid counteracts the digestive process.

Old habits are hard to break and having a nice, cold beverage on a hot, sunny day is one of them.

If you haven't experienced a colon cleanse, try one. You won't know the difference until you try it, and if you feel the difference then you know what we are talking about is true.

How to Maintain Good Colon Health


Detox sounds like rehab; well, in a way it is - it's a rehab for your body.

Detoxing for Health

Detox is another form of cleaning your system of toxins.

The major organs that harbor toxins are: the kidneys, liver, cardio vascular system, heart and respiratory system. The secondary organs are: the thyroid, thymus, adrenal, pituitary and other endocrine organs.

Imagine the fuel line on your car being clogged up, your car will sputter and spit struggling to run properly. The same thing happens to us when toxins build up in your system, it makes you feel sluggish and tired.

Detoxing is a slow process which should be supervised by a health care professional, or at least when you first start a detox program. Your body detoxes at a particular pace. Each person has a slightly different pace, so paying attention to your body during this process is very important as not to detox to fast.

There are products made specifically for detoxing. These products are usually a combination of supplements that replenish vitamins and minerals you lose during the detox process. This is another reason you don't want to rush the process - your system is going to go through a chemical change and you don't want to deplete it of those things needed to function normally.

All in all, between cleaning your colon and detoxifying your body, when the processes are completed you should feel much better and have the experience to repeat the process every 6 months to a year.

If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, then doing these two types of cleansing we've discussed here today may just be what the doctor ordered.
