The colon plays a major role in our body’s waste management. The major function of this organ is to take digested food from your stomach, extract all the nutrients and excrete waste. It also has bacteria that produce healthy and unhealthy chemicals. Every food that we intake is processed in our gastrointestinal system and liver. If they are not forced immediately, it could pollute the whole system. Studies show that colon cancer is among the top leading cause of cancer-related deaths. It is important to know the right food that you should be eating to protect and clean your colon.
There are different kinds of colon cleansing in the market that are sold for different prices. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to cleanse your colon. There are ingredients already found in your kitchen that can be used as a homemade colon cleanse.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
If you are going to buy apple cider vinegar in the market, you have to make sure that you buy the unfiltered type, which is called the “mother”. It contains a lot of nutrients that has not been processed or pasteurized. It will provide you with the most benefits for your colon. The recipe is quite simple. The ingredients needed are 8oz warm water, apple cider vinegar, and raw honey. Just add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons of raw honey to a glass of 8oz warm water. Drink this at the start of your day. You don’t have to worry about having the need to go to the bathroom constantly because it doesn’t affect your bowel movements quickly.
2. Sea Salt and Water
A “salt water cleanse” or “sea water flush” is designed to assist in cleansing your colon and digestive system by causing a forced bowel movement. The salt mixture stirs up the body’s own way of waste elimination and detoxification so the digestive system goes back on track. The best way is to drink it at the start of your day before eating a meal.
You will only need 1 Liter of warm water and 2 teaspoons of unrefined sea salt. I recommend you to use pink Himalayan salt. Make sure that it is pure salt and not the iodized type. Mix the ingredients together. Shake and stir well. Within a few minutes, you must drink the mixture quickly. Within a short time, you may be feeling the urge to go to the bathroom. You may have to go to the bathroom more than once until the colon is fully cleansed. Remember not to do the cleanse more than 7 days in a row. Wait for at least weeks or months before you perform your next flush.
