Keeping your colon healthy and running at an optimal function is very important for your health. The colon is an important organ that plays a big role in your digestion, water balance and immunity, and is a part of the large intestine that goes from the cecum to the rectum.
An improperly working colon can retain toxic waste in the body for a longer period, which will eventually get absorbed into the intestinal walls and bloodstream, where it can cause major damage.
The modern society and diet has brought a host of health problems related to the consumption of processed foods which lack fiber, enzymes and nutrients. Food usually goes through the body in 24 hours, but processed food with no nutritional value can slow down the transition to 70 hours. This will result in a toxic colon and accumulate more than 20 pounds of waste material in the organ.
The most common symptom of a toxic colon is constipation, which occurs when food moves through the bowels too quickly and causes painful elimination. Here are the other symptoms of a toxic colon:
- Constipation, bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, gasses, stomach pain;
- Joint and muscle pain;
- Behavioral symptoms;
- Depression, fatigue, brain fog, poor memory, mood swings;
- Weakened immune system;
- Recurrent vaginal or bladder infections;
- Skin rashes.
Dr. Bernard Jensen is one of the first medical experts who practices colon cleansing as a way to improve his patients’ life. In his popular book “Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management”, Dr. Jensen speaks about how important this process is. “The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It’s that hard and black,” he wrote.
The best natural colon cleanser
The Master Cleanser is a 10-16-day cleansing program developed in the 40s by Stanley Burroughs. Burroughs presented the recipe in a book he wrote in 1976. Here’s what you need to do:
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 1/10 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- 10 ounces of filtered water
The preparation couldn’t be simpler – just mix the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour the liquid in a bottle and drink 5-8 glasses of it throughout the day. Continue with the treatment for at least 10 days for best results.
In order to clean your colon, you can use essential oils as well. They are great for detoxification and improve the nutrient absorption in your body. Therapeutic oils have provided miraculous results as their nutrients are absorbed on the cellular level in the body. Here’s how to prepare a mixture from essential oils that will detox your colon:
- Lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
- 10 drops of lemon essential oil
- 10 drops of peppermint essential oil
- 2 drops of On guard blend
- 8 ounces of filtered water
Just add the ingredients in the water and mix well, then drink a glass of the remedy every day for 2 weeks.
Try both treatments in order to clean your colon of waste and improve the functioning of your body.
