Detoxify Your Colon Naturally

Life style, diet and environmental toxins can cause illness and age the body faster. Here are few things you can do to cleanse your colon.


Step 1 Limit your intake and exposure to environmental toxins and food additives. Try to buy organic, natural food. If you eat meat, be aware that animals are injected with pellets that release growth hormones over a period of time into their system and that processed meat is injected with carbon monoxide to keep its color looking "fresh". Wash all produce well and do not keep thinks in the refrigerator for an extensive period of time (label opened containers with the date you opened the seal on items such as pasta sauce, cream cheese, jams, butter, etc). Just because you do not see mold, it does not mean that the food is not being spoiled. Bottom line, try to eat fresh and healthy foods.

Step 2 You may want to start detoxifying with supplements. Some supplements for detoxification have blood purifying and antioxidant properties. Others, act as mild diuretics. Supplements can also cleanse the body off of parasites and worms. Amongst some of the herbs: are barberry, aloe vera, black walnut, wormwood, yellow dock, pau darco, uva ursi, yellow dock , etc. Other supplements include chlorophyll, garlic oil, golden seal, spirulina, bee pollen, and argeinine (amino acid) to name a few.

Step 3 Colonics and enemas, soaking in sea salt bath infused hot tub or sea weed bath is helpful to drain the body off of toxins as well as sauna therapy or just any other activity such as sun bathing that causes sweating may help over a period of time. Stay hydrated, avoid exposure to toxins in the environment as much as possible, do not smoke and do not use illegal drugs.
