Many of the foods we consume today are not the best for our bodies and they tend to lead to a buildup of toxins in the colon, as well as the digestive tract. This buildup and blockage can then lead to further health issues. A colon cleanse is effective in improving the health of your colon and digestive tract, which then improves your overall health and energy levels.
Colon Cleanse Recipe
The following cleanse takes advantage of two powerful colon-cleansing ingredients: psyllium husk and bentonite clay. Psyllium husk, when combined with water, acts as a natural lubricant and stimulant in the bowels. Bentonite clay is effective in binding to toxins and carrying them out of the body.
Follow this ideal colon cleansing recipe below to get your colon, and your whole body, back in tip-top shape.
- 1 teaspoon of bentonite clay powder OR 1 tablespoon of liquid bentonite clay
- 1 rounded tsp. psyllium husk (make sure you get high quality, ideally organic, psyllium)
- 8 ounces of water or juice
Combine the psyllium husk and bentonite into a glass, and then pour the water over the ingredients. Stir together vigorously. Then drink the mixture right away, before the mixture thickens. Follow with plenty of water and/or juice (at least another 8 ounces). Both ingredients are most effective when taken with PLENTY of water.
For a complete cleanse, you’ll eventually drink 2-3 glasses per day. For the first day, however, start with just the one glass to allow your system to get used to the ingredients. After the first day, you can take the cleanse between meals and at least 2 hours before/after taking any supplements or medications.
Because this cleanse is so effective in cleaning out your system, it should not be followed for more than two weeks at a time. Once you stop the cleanse, be sure to pay close attention to what you put into your body, and be sure to include plenty of fiber and water.
You can use this cleanse any time you feel like your body is acting sluggish, or if you know you’ve been bombarding your body with junk food lately. While not mandatory, this colon cleanse is very effective when paired with a fast. If you are doing a juice cleanse/fast, only utilize the colon cleanse before or after your cleanse.
If your fast does include some bulk and fiber sources, then it will be safe to include this colon cleanse in your fast. For best results, start the colon cleanse a couple of days before your fast, and continue it for a couple of days after you complete your fast.
It is very important to make sure everything inside the body is running smoothly and efficiently, and this colon detox is one of the most effective ways to do that. Try this quick and simple cleanse to get your colon back into shape and address any other digestive issues your body may be complaining about.
