During a colon cleanse, large amounts of water and possibly other substances, such as herbs or coffee, are flushed through the colon. ... The colon cleansing improves health by removing toxins, boosting your energy and enhancing your immune system.
Signs You Need A Colon Cleanse
- In recent years, the gut (or gastrointestinal tract) has been the focal point of research on what contributes to overall health. And it’s been found that the gut is indeed the center of well-being. After all, the number of bacteria cells living in your gut (roughly 100 trillion) is more than the number of your own cells in your body (estimated to be around 37 trillion).
Your gastrointestinal tract is also quite long - 30 feet, in fact, from your mouth to your anus. Inside this long tube, nutrients are absorbed (or not absorbed) and hormones that affect how you feel, like neurotransmitters, are synthesized.
If you could go inside your gut and witness this vast ecosystem, it would be quite an adventure. But the fact is that you can be living in your body as you are right now and still not know what is going on with your colon.
However, you can get clues as to what’s going on in the vast world of your intestinal tract via the symptoms you feel. When you don’t have anything wrong with your digestive tract, you won’t have symptoms that cause pain and discomfort or compromise your general health.
Once things start to go wrong with this system, there will be symptoms. Below is a list of some of the symptoms that your body may be giving you, telling you it’s time for a clean out of your system, or a colon cleanse.
- 1.Gas and bloating after meals or in between meals
2.Undigested food particles in the stool
3.Stool floats in the toilet
4.Stringy materials like spaghetti in the stool
5.Perfectly uniform round ‘things’ in the stool
6.Black flecks in the water of the toilet
16.Can’t lose weight
18.Can’t sleep at night
21.Stool doesn’t come out quickly
22.Read while having a bowel movement
26.Sick with colds or flu frequently
29.Inability to concentrate mentally
32.Pencil thin stools
34.Bowel movements fewer than once every day
35.Less than 2 bowel movements per day
36.Straining at the stool
37.Feels like there’s still stool in the rectum after a bowel movement
38.Stool consistency is not formed (or the consistency of peanut butter)
BENEFITS OF COLON CLEANING
- Colon cleansing can help improve your body’s overall health and wellness, and may even reduce your risks for colon cancer.
1. MAKES THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM MORE EFFECTIVE
As the colon is cleansed, it pushes waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. A clean colon from a colon detox allows waste to pass easily.
2. MAINTAINS REGULARITY AND PREVENTS CONSTIPATION
Constipation — especially when it's chronic — causes a sluggish digestive response, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the likelihood of certain conditions and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
3. INCREASES ENERGY
Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating because it refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colon detoxification say they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep, and a boost in energy.
4. INCREASES THE BODY'S ABSORPTION OF VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS
A colon that's been cleansed allows only water, vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream, creating an unobstructed path for essential nutrients to filter into your body.
5. IMPROVES CONCENTRATION
Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose your concentration. The buildup of mucous and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships, and your overall health.
6. KICK-STARTS WEIGHT LOSS
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter. Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds empty and can hold up to eight meals' worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.
7. DECREASES RISK OF COLON CANCER
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe, and absorb through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. If they're not forced from your organs as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body's systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
8. INCREASES FERTILITY
Colon cleansing, as well as increased fiber intake and healthy food choices, improves regularity and helps keep your weight under control. Fat is estrogen-based, and if too much is present, becoming pregnant becomes more difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain. Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. We recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing before attempting pregnancy.
9. MAINTAINS PH BALANCE IN THE BLOODSTREAM
Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming — particularly high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to general malaise in the body. The colon's tissue eventually becomes inflamed, reducing its ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body's pH will be thrown out of balance.
10. IMPROVES WHOLE-BODY WELL-BEING
Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to
feelings of lightness, increased energy, and overall good health.
