The digestive process is very complex. If digestion is impeded, the overall health suffers, and the body cannot get the needed essential nutrients. You depend on your colon to help regulate your bowel movements and your digestive system.
The waste and toxins that build up in our bodies can cause many health problems.
You can cleanse your colon by adjusting your diet and your lifestyle. You can also reach out to your doctor for professional guidance on how to cleanse your colon safely. But, in this article we are giving you the most effective and simple way to do it:
Apple juice is one of the most potent ingredients you can use to cleanse the colon, along with lemon juice. You should extract the juice from several apples in a juicer or blender.
All you need to do is to drink a glass of unfiltered apple juice, and after 30 minutes, drink a glass of water. Repeat this several times daily for 3 days.
You can also drink lemon juice in between to increase the effects of the colon cleansing method. Or you should just add 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice into the apple juice and drink the mixture 2 times a day.
Add a pinch of sea salt, juice of one lemon, and a little honey into a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this combination each morning when you wake up, before breakfast on an empty stomach.
How To Adjust Your Diet?
Add more fiber to your diet. Fiber adds bulk, softens stool, and contributes to peristalsis (gentle, rhythmic contractions of the colon), which encourages elimination. More fiber in your body means your colon can move waste out of your body more quickly and efficiently. Aim for about 20 to 35 grams (0.7 to 1 oz) of fiber a day. Make sure you have five servings a day of fruits and vegetables as well as lots of whole grains in your diet.
- Have 100% whole grains in your diet, such as brown rice, quinoa, oatmeal, millet, and corn.
- Flax seeds, wheat bran, and oats are super sources of fiber. You can prepare flax seed at home, have it in smoothies, or add it to other foods.
- Fruits like strawberries, apples, and blueberries are high in fiber. Beans, seeds, and nuts are also good sources of fiber.
