We have a lot of disorders arising from the colon’s inability to effectively rid the system of toxic waste products. We feel bloated or constipated. Our stomach aches. We find it difficult to digest our food. All these result in great discomfort. If not addressed appropriately, the problem may evolve into a more serious health problem.
The colon usually takes care of eliminating waste products from the body. It can do this effectively with assistance from the water we drink, as well as from the “roughage” provided by fruits and vegetables which help “sweep” and “flush” of the toxins from our system.
Unfortunately, we are not in the habit of eating a lot of fiber-dense fruits and vegetables. Nor do we drink enough water. The food that we eat nowadays is hardly conducive to optimum health. Because we live in the “fast lane,” we hardly have enough time or energy to plan and prepare nutritious meals. We depend on a lot of processed and canned food for our daily meals. We live on the offerings of fast food chains. A typical meal usually consists of burgers, French fries, milkshake, downed with a can of soda. It thus becomes difficult for the colon to perform its duties efficiently.
We need to adapt a colon cleanse home remedy so we can eliminate all the impurities in our system.
Food starts to break down as soon as we put them in our mouths. When we chew and salivate, we are already starting the process. We start to sort out our food’s contents as to things our body needs (nutrients) and things our body does not need (wastes). We continue to extract as we swallow and the food enters our tummy and small- intestine. The nutrients are absorbed and utilized by the body through the blood. In the meantime, the large intestine, or the colon, takes the waste that is separated from the nutrients and is tasked with the responsibility to eliminate it from the system.
To ensure that the colon does its job well, people sometimes take measures to cleanse the colon. This is usually done by eating foods which encourage the bowel to move efficiently. The bowel can also be irrigated by liquid so that it can be emptied of its waste contents fast.
There are many pros to a colon cleanse home remedy, especially during this day and age. Our generation has become so used to eating “fast-food cuisine” that our health as a people seems to be at an all-time low. One of the consequences of our poor eating habits is the accumulation of toxic material on the walls of the colon. This waste by itself weighs a lot, adding to our weight. It also takes up space, adding to our bulk, especially in the abdomen. So if we flush the colon, we can also expect to lose some weight – most of this in the form of waste products.
Staying away from solid food for a short duration of time is a good way to cleanse the colon. You can take juices extracted from fresh vegetables and fruits in place of the solids so that you do not miss out on the essential nutrients that your body needs.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to these veggies and fruits. Depending on your taste and tolerance, you may include beta-carotene-dense carrots, beets, or wheat-grass. You can also have either the roots or leaves of parsley or celery. You can include kale, cucumber, or pepper. Or you can go for the apple, lemon, or orange. You can have the juice of one of these or a blend of two or more fruits/vegetables. Make sure that the ingredients you use are fresh and at their best. It is also best if you extract the juice yourself just before you drink it. This way, you are assured that they are at their most nutritious form.2016-05-23
