Colon Detoxification

Colon detoxification is a process that should be added to everyone’s regular health routine.  Yet, most people fail to realize the importance of the colon and do not understand how necessary it is to maintain it. This article explores some commonly asked questions when it comes to colon detoxification, including how to perform the process and why it is vital for helping to keep your body healthy.

Function of the Colon

The colon is a part of your large intestine, which is in turn a part of your entire digestive system.  Its job is to store food matter that has already been digested by the small intestine.  While in this storage area, nutrients and water are removed from the waste so they can be used by your body. The rest of the waste is then passed out of your body naturally.

Reasons for Colon Detoxification

While the colon is designed to effectively remove all waste from the body, the diets most people follow actually hinder the colon’s job.  This is because fatty foods, such as meat and cheese, are harsh to your colon. Similarly, foods with artificial additives or that have been refined are not natural and are harmful to your colon.

In an effort to protect itself from these unhealthy foods, your colon produces mucus and sludge. This mucus and sludge surrounds the unhealthy foods, which protects the colon from harm. Unfortunately, excessive amounts of this mucus and sludge become difficult for the colon to pass out of the body. Over time, the colon can become clogged with this waste and constipation can develop from the diminished digestive efficiency.

Even if the colon manages to avoid becoming clogged, the mucus and sludge still accumulate on the inner walls of the colon. As the mucus and sludge sits on the wall, it releases toxins into your body’s bloodstream. These toxins can lead to a number of different illnesses and diseases. They can also cause you to suffer from allergies, to endure persistent fatigue, or to feel muscle and joint pain.

Methods for Detoxifying the Colon

There are a few different ways to perform a colon detoxification.  One method is to use an enema, which involves forcing water into your anus and holding it for a few minutes before releasing it into the toilet.  Many people find this process to be uncomfortable and potentially messy. You can also cause harm to your digestive tract if you do not perform the enema correctly.  In addition, the enema is only effective at removing waste from the first several inches of the colon.

Another option for colon detoxification is the high colonic. This also requires forcing water into your anus, but involves a closed system for removing the water and waste directly into a sewage line. Therefore, it is not nearly as messy and no odor is involved.  While some people find colonics to be soothing, many people are not keen on the idea of forcing water into their bodies.  For this reason, most people prefer using supplements for a detoxification.

Care needs to be taken when using herbal supplements because several products are not very effective though marketed as such. In fact, some provide only a laxative effect, which does not help with removing built up waste. Therefore, you should try an oxygen-based all-natural supplement such as Oxy-Powder®. Oxy-Powder® liquefies the waste lining the lining of the colon, which allows it to then be easily removed from the body normally. In addition, it does not have an addictive quality like many over-the-counter or prescription laxatives.

Signs of a Successful Detoxification Program

The best way to determine if a colon detoxification was successful is to look at the waste that is released from your body.  If you use an herbal supplement giving a laxative effect, you will find your stool is runny or watery and may be light in color. If the supplement is effective, you should see a stool that is solid and dark in color. The waste may also be shiny from being coated with the expelled mucus.

Many people discover they have lost weight after performing a thorough colon detoxification program. Of course, this weight is not true fat loss. Rather, it is from the accumulated waste finally removed from your body.  Even if you don’t lose weight, you will likely feel “lighter” inside after your colon detoxification.  You might find your skin improving in appearance, allergies subsiding, and your body just feeling better. Cleansing your colon also provides a nice little boost to your immune system from helping your body get rid of old toxins. With so many benefits to colon detoxification, it is a wonder more people are not aware of this great little health secret. So see if it works for you and then spread the word to your friends and family, and they will surely thank you for it!
