Homemade Colon Cleanse

The colon has a very important function in our body and our health. The nutrition we take in as food is broken down and the essential nourishing elements are absorbed via the colon. Water is also absorbed there, to be used in throughout the body. Anything else that is not useful to our body remains in the colon to be eliminated with our bowel movements. Most of the leftover chemicals are toxins that should never have made their way into our bodies. These toxins come from preservative laden food that we eat. In fact, there may be up to 25 pounds of toxins and waste products in the colon at any one time. If the poisons are allowed to continue accumulating, we can suffer ill effects such as constipation, diarrhea, liver problems, skin blemishes and cancer. In order to preserve our health, a colon cleanse is in order to rid the body of these harmful substances and toxic waste. The colon cleanse is a special diet you can do at home to get your health back on track.

A key ingredient in one type of colon detox is an edible clay called Bentonite. The clay bonds to the toxins in the lining of the colon and helps flush them out with bowel movements. To use the clay, combine it with a 1:1 ration of psyllium and you may drink warm water or apple juice with it. Over a period of 3 weeks to one month, you should continue to take this mixture along with fiber-rich foods and lot of water. Plan to drink 2.5 to 3 liters of H20 daily.

Following Ayurvedic principles (traditional medical advice from India) Triphala will provide an excellent colon detox. The term means “3 fruits” and is made from Bahera, Harataki and Amlaki. The Triphala mixture should be added to 1 teaspoon of honey and consumed at bedtime. Drink a cup of warm water along with this concoction.

Another no-prescription-required detox is pro-biotic powder. It contains yeast and healthy flora / bacteria that are actually beneficial to the body. The powder will help to keep the optimal balance in the gut.

If you'd prefer to use common cupboard ingredients to create your colon cleanse, you only need a few ingredients. Mix 2 bananas, 2 cups barley grass or wheat grass (powdered), papaya (100 grams) and 1.5 tbsp. of acidophilus. Blend on high for 5 minutes adding in 2 cups of water for a good consistency. Drink after dinner or before retiring for the night. (It is best to drink one-half hour before your bedtime if you choose that option.)

For another option, why not try a veggie juice blend? Use an ounce of cabbage and spinach juice, an ounce of parsley and wheat grass or alfalfa juice. Add 6 ounces of celery juice and 2 tsp. each of sugar and lime (use fresh fruit). Toss it all in the blender and drink after breakfast during your colon cleanse period. As an alternative you can opt for fruit juice rather than veggie.

Another recipe consists of Rose Hips, white raisins (Sultana) and senna – mix 50 grams of each with 1 liter of water and heat at a low setting for a half hour. This mixture can be stored in an airtight container and drunk for a period of 10 to 15 days.
