Denis Burkitt, a renowned British surgeon says “People get sick because of everyday toxins and heavy metals in their colons.” The followings are practical ways in which you can eliminate poisons from your system.
Ways you can clean out your colon
1. Drink Water
First of all, one method you can use is to simply drink plenty of water. You can drink between 10 to 12 glasses of water within one day just for this purpose. Water taken regularly will give your body the fluid and lubrication necessary to flush out poisons and waste from your body naturally.
Plenty of water will help stimulate the natural peristaltic action: water will keep your body well hydrated and also help your food go through the natural digestive system.
2. Take Fresh Apple Juice
You can squeeze or extract fresh apple juice and drink. It will help your bowel movement as well as aid in the elimination of toxins which will improve the health of your liver and digestive system. Take a glass of this, and then a glass of water after about thirty minutes first thing in the morning. Do this a number of times a day for say, three days. For greater effect, you could avoid solid foods when doing this exercise.
3. Drink Lemon Juice
Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. It is therefore very good for your digestive system and the cleansing of your colon. You should mix a pinch of (sea) salt with lemon juice and a tablespoon of (real) honey in a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this on an empty stomach especially first thing in the morning.
Lemon has antioxidant properties and its high vitamin C content is good for the digestive system. Hence, lemon juice can be used for colon cleansing. Do it for three to four days continuously. It will give you good bowel movement, improved energy and good skin.
4. Take Raw Vegetable Juice
Try to avoid processed and cooked foods while you are on this. Freshly squeezed vegetables especially green-leafy vegetables will remove waste products from your system. You can make your raw vegetable juice from carrots, pumpkin leaves (Ugu), spinach, Kale, etc with a juicer, blender, or any other method. Also remember, you can take herbal teas as well.
5. Eat Fibre-rich Foods
Eating fibre-rich foods will make your stool soft and bowel movement easy and smooth; as a result it cleanses your colon of harmful toxins and expels other waste products. You get this from plenty of fruits and vegetables, and other foods like: pears, apples, beans, broccoli, whole grains and cereals, nuts, peas, cassava/gari, yam, sweet potatoes, etc.
6. Eat Yoghourt
Eating especially fresh yoghourt regularly will help clean out your guts, and maintain a healthy flora environment since it is a probiotic food. It will help introduce some healthy bacteria to your colon to promote digestion and fight inflammatory bowel infections. Eat yoghourt plain or add fruits with it.
Use Ginger Root
Ginger root is readily available in Nigeria and like garlic, should not be lacking in your kitchen any day. Ginger will fight stomach bloating and therefore aid digestion and good bowel movement when it stimulates your colon and keep it free of harmful toxins. You can take ginger in any way – grated, crushed, cut in pieces; and you can make tea with it and drink regularly for colon cleansing. Also, mix one teaspoon of ginger juice and one-quarter cup of lemon juice to two cups of hot water; add a little honey if you may. You should share this mixture and drink it all three times a day.
