It is almost difficult to believe that 10-20 pounds of waste can be stuck in your colon, but it turns out that the colon is a fairly large place. And occasionally a little help may be needed to get rid of all those toxins accumulated over time.
These alleged toxins are rarely described by detergents in detail, but generally referred to as “poisons” or “pollutants”. In the medical field, toxins can refer to anything from alcohol, food, medicine, asbestos.
“Detoxification” may also refer to drug addiction treatment, but it is very different: here, we are specifically discussing these food and drink cleaners. Your liver eliminates toxins from the body, but its function depends on the condition of the colon. The same goes for every cell in the body.
WASTE FROM YOUR LIVER, BLOOD, LYMPH, THROAT, LUNGS AND FINISHED BREASTS UP TO THE COLON.
Nutrient leftovers also end up in the colon. If the colon is “stuck”, none of these functions will give correct results. Toxic buildups cause serious health problems, which means you need to cleanse your colon more often.
Digestion of food lasts for 22-24 hours. The food you eat has plenty of time to travel through the digestive tract and colon. Once your body has finished digesting it, leftover food is disposed of as toxic waste.
It takes 70 hours for the body to digest nutrient-deficient foods. The waste builds up in your colon and you end up facing severe constipation and irregular bowel movement.
Dona Gates, founder of Body Ecology, says that a healthy digestive system is important for overall health.
Here are the most common symptoms of colon toxicity:
Diarrhea, stomach pain, gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation
Joint and muscle pain
Vaginal infections, poor immunity, skin rashes, bladder problems
Anxiety, memory loss, depression, fatigue, mood swings, brain fog
Have you ever had a colon cleanse? It is extremely effective and you will never have to deal with a “clogged” colon again. We have a couple of interesting tips and it’s up to you to decide what works best for your body.
COLON CLEANING WITH MAPLE SYRUP
1 organic lemon, freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons of organic maple syrup (grade B)
½ teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
12 ounces of filtered water
Mix well and drink 4 times a day on an empty stomach for 2 weeks.
Do not starve
Make sure to follow a low carbohydrate diet with any cleansing, despite what common squeezing trends suggest.
If you drink nothing but juice / colon cleanse for a week, you will lose weight, but it is because you are not eating, not because your body is “detoxifying”. Water is stored in the muscles with glycogen. When following a low-calorie diet, the glycogen stores are depleted and the weight of the water is lost.
You will get that water weight right away when you return to your normal diet. You’re also missing out on all those other vital nutrients like fat, fiber and protein. Indeed, some cleaners suggest avoiding exercise when standing on them because the calorie intake is so low, which leads to tiredness and dizziness.
