The Quickest Ways to Empty Your Bowels and Cleanse (Detox) the Colon
I like to share with you the many different ways that you can help cleanse your colon. Keep it clean. Our colon takes a beating from poor diet, and everyone, one time or another, will develop up cramping, abdominal pain, fullness, bloating, nausea, as well as constipation. And most diseases are directly or indirectly tied into the colon.
That’s our microbiome. That’s where the good bacteria flourish. We need that good bacteria in order for our bodies to stay healthy. The gut and the brain work together, and one of the most important things is hydration.
Drinking enough water, at least half the amount of ounces of your total weight, at least because all the cells require water, our hormones, our enzymes, as well as our detoxifying systems. So if you’re not drinking enough water, that’s going to give you lots of problems.
And if you have a hard time drinking water, try to eat those fruits that have high water content, like watermelon, your melons, pineapples, blueberries, raspberries, or your vegetables like cucumber, lettuce. They are all very good for your body.
And I prefer drinking your water that’s room temperature. You can add lemon to it. The citric acid is very cleansing to the liver as well as the lymphatic system. And even mixing one to two teaspoons of sea salt or himalayan salt to a full glass of warm water will definitely stimulate your bowels.
You will be amazed. And you want to focus on those high fiber foods, those plant foods, your fruits and vegetables, your grains, nuts, seeds, and more. That fiber will bulk up the excessive matter in your colon, and it will boost your good bacteria.
Because fiber is a prebiotic, your probiotics feed on those prebiotics that will keep your colon healthy. And drinking your smoothies with your fruits and vegetables. You can throw some chia seed in there, which is great soluble fiber.
Adding apples, lemons, or even aloe vera is extremely cleansing for the colon. And eat those probiotics. It will cleanse the colon and boost that good bacteria in your gut. Eat your fermented food, your pickles, apple cider vinegar, your yogurt, your kefirs.
And there are many teas that will give you this laxative or muscle relaxing effects that help to relieve constipation and will encourage your bowel movements. Your senna teas, peppermint teas, dandelion, black tea, green tea, licorice root, marshmallow root, as well as chamomile teas.
And drinking coffee has powerful antioxidants. It stimulates hormones that help push food through your gut. Coffee will increase levels of the hormone gastrin.
Like caffeine, gastrin makes the colon more active, increasing peristalsis as your body removes more waste, toxins and ginger is used in many detoxification programs due to its ability to cleanse the body by stimulating digestion, circulation as well as sweating.
Its digestive actions serve to cleanse the buildup of waste and toxins in the colon as well as the liver and other organs. And adding some lemon or even some honey with the ginger will really help make a big difference in helping to detoxify and cleanse your colon.
And fasting for a period of time or doing intermittent fasting is another great method of colon cleansing. It helps the kidneys and the liver eliminate those harmful toxins from the body and during your fasting, drinking water is king. But if you want, you can drink some vegetable juices or some fresh fruit juices which can actually help cleanse your colon as well.
And taking two to four teaspoons of magnesium citrate powder along with a glass of water will give you that laxative effect to help soften the stools to increase your bowel movements and your rich sources of omega three fatty acids is another great way to cleanse your colon.
Taking one tablespoon of powdered flaxseeds with one glass of warm water and consuming this mixture 30 minutes before you have breakfast and before going to bed will help significantly and aloe vera will help cleanse out your system. Those detoxifying properties of aloe vera helps cleanse the body of toxins.
The juice also cleanse the intestines, which help to keep our bowel movements smooth and healthy. So those are some different ways that you can utilize to help detoxify and cleanse your colon. Remember, everything starts from the colon. I wish you good health.
