Colon Cleansing Product
Sounds like an incident of drinking and driving, doesn’t it? Actually, it’s a buzzword with a very long definition meaning essentially, “the process of poisoning by substances that are produced by your own body because of improper digestions and elimination.”
To look at it in a simpler light, let’s say it’s trash pickup day in your city. You left the trash cans out this morning and the city workers came and picked it up. En route to the city dump, there is a problem–the truck breaks down. Someone can rescue the workers, but the truck has to be left there until it can be towed. So what would happen if the trash remained for several days, weeks, or even years? All this time, the trash in the truck is just putrefying and making the whole neighborhood stink as it breaks down into toxic sludge.
Likewise, because of a buildup of toxins, stemming from poor eating habits and chronic constipation, the colon loses its ability to remove waste. That’s where an internal colon cleansing product can help get things moving again. Unfortunately, a person with the backed up digestive system will begin to experience a host of negative health conditions.

A Look At Fiber
A good colon cleansing product will typically provide fiber. Our diets are lacking in plant fiber; but a healthy colon needs fiber to keep bowel movements soft. This will help to reduce pressure inside the colon so it can stay toned. There are two kinds of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and helps diminish serum cholesterol levels. This type can be found in apples, oranges, and beans. Insoluble fiber can’t be absorbed by the body and it helps clean out mucus before it can build up and harden on the intestinal lining. This type of fiber acts like a scouring pad inside the colon.
One natural colon cleansing product uses Psyllium husks and bentonite clay. Bentonite clay comes from volcanic ash and is a good absorber of toxins, and because it carries a negative charge, the body doesn’t absorb it. The Psyllium husks form a sort of gel-like bulking agent to help absorb more toxins while speeding up elimination. Many people take this mixture with water 3 times a day as a colon cleansing product. However, some negative side effects have been reported with extended use of Psyllium so you should always weigh the risks of using herbal laxatives against any perceived benefits.
Experts tell us—in cultures where high fiber diets are standard, very little Diverticulosis occurs. Thirty million Americans suffer from Diverticulosis, caused by hard waste matter exerting pressure on the intestinal walls. Simply switching to higher fiber diets helps the majority of Diverticulosis sufferers.
If someone has a tendency towards constipation, they should consider a colon cleansing product, so other problems don’t have a chance to develop. Many people claim they no longer suffer from chronic constipation after using a colon cleansing product for the recommended time. Where they may have previously had one bowel movement every week, people who’ve tried a good colon cleanser can now have 2 to 3 bowel movements a day.
Colon Cleansing Methods
Since everyone is different, you will want to choose a colon cleansing product suiting your lifestyle. Here are some product options:
Colon Hydrotherapy: Warm filtered water is sent into the colon by a plastic tube, which is inserted via the rectum. Water continuously fills and leaves the colon for a gentle wash. Often the colon hydrotherapist will massage the colon gently during the procedure. The sessions usually last about 45 minutes.
Enema: Although an enema will dislodge fecal matter within the lower portion, it won’t cleanse the entire colon. Still, if constipation is a problem an enema can be helpful.
Herbal colon cleaners: Another colon cleansing product utilizes a combination of herbs. Many of these combinations include laxatives, like Senna, Cascara sagrada, and rhubarb root. Since they include laxatives, they should not be used on a long-term basis. Furthermore, these herbs have been demonstrated in scientific studies to be dangerous for extended use, as they can cause a host of health problems including damage to the liver, heart, and digestive tract, severe allergic reactions, constriction in the esophagus, blood diseases, and even death in some cases due to hypersensitivity from previous exposure. Those are definitely not qualities you want in a colon cleansing product!
Organic colon cleansers: Capsules including oxygenated magnesium will help remove toxins in the colon as well as remove waste matter. The capsules go to work releasing oxygen to liquefy waste, making it thus easy to eliminate. Oxy-powder® is a colon cleansing product which is also safe for long-term use since it is non-addictive (unlike commercially available laxatives). Oxy-Powder® just helps your digestive system perform as it should by aiding in the natural cleansing process, no more and no less.
