Start the Year Right and Cleanse Your Colon Naturally

Want to start losing weight this year? Are you starting another resolution or are you going to be serious this time? Well let me get you off to the right start by talking about something that most people find uncomfortable talking about – their colons. If you believe you’re having problems with your digestive system you’re probably right and it might be time to cleanse your colon naturally. What’s linked to your digestive system is you colon and it’s a very important part of the body and getting your metabolism firing. Today I’m going to discuss exactly why.

Neglected, the colon can cause many problems that prevent it from doing what it’s meant to do; to properly eliminate waste in the form of feces, and reabsorb food nutrients and water. When not functioning properly the colon develops what’s known as an impaction. Impaction is where all or some of the feces remain their unnecessarily stopping normal bowel movements, causing constipation, IBS and other symptoms such as bad breath, bloating and stomach cramps. You may also have worms that can feed on the food inside you causing you problems such as lack on energy and malnutrition.

I thought I’d gross you out and show you that the waste material that may remain in the colon can potentially result in toxic poisoning of the system as a results of the absorption of the waste materials back in the body. This is where cleansing the colon can come handy. Colon cleansing is simply the flushing out of built up waste materials which has been tacked on to your system because you couldn’t get rid of it normally and is cleaned from the large and small intestines. Even if you believe your fine and healthy cleansing your colon should be a regular part of everyone’s life.

Regardless of how healthy you are or how regularly you go to the toilet, it’s believed that the average adult has between five to fifteen pounds of waste materials built up inside their bowels. And unfortunately these days, we are subject to so many toxic ingredients from the foods at our supermarkets. Therefore you too are bound to have something built up within you that’s too stubborn to be passed.

There are various ways you can do it, either through diet or getting a colonic irrigation. However, I’d always recommend you begin with looking at a colon cleansing diet to start the cleaning process and creating a healthy digestive system. So if you are feeling tired, stressed, bloated or constipated and looking for a healthy start then firstly start by eliminating junk food. We sometimes forget the amount of rubbish we are allowing to enter into our systems as it’s just part of regular life.

Next, the start with bleeding obvious …

Drink more water

Number one rule of thumb when you want to clean you system and colon out is to drink more water. So whatever you are drinking now, look to add 1 litre more until you reach a regular 3-4 litres of water per day. Water helps breakdown the leftovers inside you and promotes more bowel movements.

Stick to just Fruit and Vegetables (for a few days)

Protein sources such as meat and dairy are all needed by the body, however sometimes it can get a bit much. When you’re find it hard to go regularly to the toilet then that might mean that you are too stocked up on the stuff that’s hard to break down.

I recommend sticking to a variety of fruit (2-4 serves) and vegetables (5-10 serves, including legumes) diet for at least 5 days as these foods will provide you much need fibre, nutrients and are easily digestible. After that incorporate your meat and dairy back into your diet slowly until you find the optimal amount need to remain regular.

Increase fibre intake (slightly)

Don’t go to far when it comes to fibre intake. Your goal is between 20 – 30 grams of fibre per day. Now if your fruit and vegetables intake has increased, then your fibre intake will have increased. However, you may want to look into getting a soluble fibre supplement just to ensure your getting your recommended dosage.

Walk 30 minutes each day

Yes, believe it or not having a healthy system and colon also has a lot to do with regular exercise. Movement promotes bowel movements and I shouldn’t have to reel off all the other benefits of regular exercise. Just do it!

You don’t have to do a lot. A detox plan as written above is not rocket science. It’s just a common sense approach that anyone can do and everyone should do once every 3 to 4 months. Regain your energy and start cleansing you colon out today. I know it seems strange, but you will feel lighter and you will thank me for it. In the end it’s not only going to make you feel better then ever again, but having a cleaner colon is also useful to help prevent cancer and help you to lose weight and keep it off in the long run.
