A number of studies suggest that psyllium may also be effective in lowering cholesterol,28 promoting weight loss (it makes you feel full), and aiding in the relief of numerous other conditions. For example: studies have shown that psyllium can significantly decrease serum glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin in diabetic outpatients.29 (Note: Psyllium can make tetracycline antibiotics less effective, so consult your doctor for guidance before using psyllium while on a regimen of antibiotics.)
All of these foods contain high amounts of fiber, calcium, and vitamin D, which are great at keeping your digestive system working properly and preventing constipation. But if you’re not used to a diet rich in fiber or calcium, introducing lots of these types of foods at once can lead to gastrointestinal distress in the form of diarrhea, bloating, or constipation. If you’re planning on a dietary colon cleanse, add more of these foods to your diet little by little over time instead of all at once.
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter. Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds empty and can hold up to eight meals' worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.

Cayenne does more than just adding some heat to your meals. It's a mucous dissolver and help loosen any mucous build up in the body. The stomach uses mucous and stomach acid to boost and ease digestions and cayenne may even fight symptoms of indigestion. It's not a coincidence that's it's one of the three things you're allowed to consume on the intense (and ludicrous!?!) Master Cleanse.

hi, i was wondering if you can help me. I have been constipated/diarrhea for years now and cant get rid of it. i had my stools checked and a colonscopy done but the doctors tell me that it comes back normal, on the side the doctor found out i have anemia, vitamin d definecy, protein in my urine and i have noticed eye floaters. I'm not sure whats wrong with me but i feel so sick im not sure what to do, can you please help me? they gave me antibiotics for the protein in my urine but for some reason it didnt work on me, they told me they didnt undertand why i had protein in my urine i think its cause of my colon cause ever since i had digestive issues afew years later i ended up getting the proetin in my urine. im not absorbing my nutrients. I;m actually doing a detox cleanse right now, the blessed herbs one but i dont feel any different yet. i'm on my third day of fasting.
One of the little known aspects of the digestive system is the fact that it acts as the guardian of your body. The digestive tract is the place where the outside world meets the inner world of your bodily functions. Imagine this for a moment. You pick up a piece of food and place it in your mouth, and as it digests it moves through your whole body. Your digestive system is totally responsible for deciding whether or not that piece of food is safe.
While the Super Colon Cleanse has a lot to offer, some consumers say that the product is no different from an ordinary laxative. Others say that although there were noticeable improvements in bowel movement, the product was not as effective in elimination as other products. It’s also worth noting that the Super Colon Cleanse has no clear money back guarantee or policy on return purchases.
A good herbal-based, intestinal corrective provides both cleansing and healing to the entire gastro-intestinal system. It stimulates peristalsis (the muscular movement of the colon). It halts putrefaction and disinfects, soothes, and heals the mucous membrane lining of your entire digestive tract. Entirely herbal, with no harsh, habit-forming chemicals, an effective activating formula will also help improve digestion, relieve gas and cramps, increase the flow of bile (which in turn cleans the gallbladder, bile ducts, and liver), destroy Candida albicans overgrowth and promote healthy intestinal flora, destroy and expel intestinal parasites, and increase gastrointestinal circulation. The herbs used in this type of formula are also antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal.
Have you ever started a dieting, exercising and living a healthier lifestyle but STILL don't see results in your weight?? One of the best health benefits of colon cleansing is seeing rapid weight loss that occurs naturally. The toxins in the body that prevent you from losing weight easily are now removed by the detox tea and your body can FINALLY lose weight on its' own!

I had pain in my right back when I lay down to sleep. I thought it was just below where the liver should be. I thought it might be my gallbladder. Next day I took dandelion root caps. One three times a day. After three weeks I passed many black, pea sized round hard stones in my stool.. I removed a few & opened them. They were white inside. I thought they were little gallstones. No more pain in the back & has never returned. I would recommend this for anyone with similar symptoms.
The other claim sometimes made about herbal laxatives is that you become dependent on them to have a bowel movement. The evidence does not bear that out. Millions of people who did not have regular bowel movements before using colon cleansing products, have gone on natural colon cleansers, stayed on them for a number of months to build up colon function, and then weaned themselves off. The net result is that their colons are stronger and working better than before they started on the colon cleansing program. The trick is to wean yourself off, not stop abruptly. Just think how sensitive your colon is. Sometimes just taking a trip is enough to make you constipated. Your colon doesn't like abrupt changes.
Wolf said people's curiosity about cleansing possibly stems from the idea that the bowel is a dirty place, and that getting rid of waste is a good idea. She said she usually doesn't recommend colon hydrotherapy, but has suggested it for a few people to use as colonoscopy preparation when traditional methods have failed. She's also recommended it for patients who had severe constipation, before there were strong drugs that could help remedy this problem.
Increasing both soluble and insoluble fiber can help with a wide range of gastrointestinal problems, including constipation, diverticular disease, and colorectal cancer. The typical American consumes about 15 grams a day, but you need closer to 25 grams to 30 grams. If there are no gluten issues, add sources of both insoluble fiber, such as cereal and whole grains, and soluble fiber, such as bran, some fruit, some vegetables, and oatmeal.
The colon plays a vital role in how your body processes food. As your digestive system breaks down the food you eat, it enters into the colon in a mostly liquid state. The colon performs two significant roles at this stage of the digestive process. First, bacteria in your colon break down the food further. Second, it absorbs additional nutrients and liquid. Leftover food waste is then turned into feces and stored in the descending colon until it is ready to be expelled from the body.
I’ve had colon hydrotherapy on and off for a few years now. The place I go to in Las Vegas normally puts healthy bacteria in the final part of the session. Foot and hand massage are also performed if wanted. They also massage the stomach to help loosen areas/help water flow. At the end as you are leaving, they provide a cup of emergen C mix and cup of homemade vegetarian soup to complete your session.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission have taken action against several companies selling detox/cleansing products because they contained illegal, potentially harmful ingredients; were marketed using false claims that they could treat serious diseases; or (in the case of medical devices used for colon cleansing) were marketed for unapproved uses.
Fresh ginger Root has a long history of use in herbal medicine. Specifically, in this formula, it is used for its ability to help control temporary nausea,18, fn] Yekta ZP1, Ebrahimi SM, Hosseini M, Nasrabadi AN, et al. "Ginger as a miracle against chemotherapy-induced vomiting." Iran J Nurs Midwifery Res. 2012 Jul;17(5):325-9. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23853643 which makes it useful when stimulating intestinal activating and in liver cleansing programs as well as in morning sickness during pregnancy. Ginger root is also a strong COX 2 inhibitor, which means it can help reduce inflammation in the intestinal tract. As a side note, in the Far East and India, ginger root is renowned for its aphrodisiac properties.
Apple pectin can be used to remove unwanted metals and toxins, lower cholesterol30 and to help reduce the side effects of radiation therapy. In fact, it was used after Chernobyl to pull radioactive waste from victims.31 Apple pectin also helps to break down the build-up of mucus and binds to various toxic metals such as mercury,32 lead, etc. And apple pectin is also another good source of soluble fiber. It has the ability to form a gel that can bind water and toxins together, thus also bulking the stool and carrying the toxins out of the body.
What’s so good about this acidic fruit? It stimulates the liver to produce more bile. This helps the stomach move food through the gut while cleaning the large intestines. A lemon cleanse, in fact, is also known as a master cleanse and for good reason. It’s high in water-soluble vitamin C, which easily passes through your system and combats free radicals. Lemons also fall into the classification of anionic foods, which assist in production of vital digestion fluids, such as stomach acid and saliva.
Many colon cleanse practitioners lose weight because they clear waste products from their intestines. During a colon cleanse, you may have five or six bowel movements per day. These frequent bowel movements eliminate the waste that normally builds up in your digestive tract. According to the commercial Best Colon Cleanse website, some people lose 10 or more pounds during the cleansing process.
The average person carries 5 or more pounds of waste in her colon, according to the website Colon Health. Doing a colon cleanse will cause you to eliminate that waste and drop those pounds. The weight loss won't be permanent, though, because you'll continue to eat, digest and eliminate food. Instead of taking an herbal supplement to shed the waste and drop the pounds, talk with your doctor about more permanent ways to lose weight -- if that's what you need to do.
But constipation is a severe problem in the developed world. According to a 2007 study published in Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, the incidence of chronic constipation in the United States is just over 17 percent, or well over 50 million people.10 With a bowel movement once every five days (towards the low end definition of constipation), you're talking about 10 pounds of fecal matter stored in the colon -- at once every seven days it's 14 pounds. And statistically, we're still talking about several million people. So, my statement that 10--20 pounds is not as unusual as you might think, holds up…again, mathematically speaking. And let's keep in mind, these numbers assume that 100% of this stored fecal matter is evacuated from your bowels during your once a week movements -- a questionable assumption at best. As for the 65 pounds, I did say that has been reported "only in exceptional cases." The simple mathematical truth is that the concept of people storing pounds of fecal matter is not "false, false, false" as Dr. Carroll asserts; It's mathematically "true, true, true!"
Colonics do work to flush loose waste and sediment from rectum and large intestine, but they have several drawbacks. They can actually weaken bowel muscles over time. Colonics don't draw toxins from bowel pockets or from tissue. They do, however, flush all bacteria out--the good as well as the bad. Colonics can also disrupt natural pH (acid/alkaline) balance) in the large intestine. Finally, depending on the skill of your therapist, you run the risk (low) that some water retained in the equipment from another patient's previous use may be injected into your colon. Yech!
The colon is an organ that is part of the digestive tract in the body. It’s often called the large intestine or the large bowel. When food enters the body, it's digested mostly in the small intestine, where vitamins and minerals are taken out. After that, the food moves into the colon. The colon takes out water, and bacteria in the colon help break down the food to prepare it to leave the body. A healthy colon basically functions as the "cleanup" crew of the body.

James, who was enlisted by NSW Health to help devise guidelines after the hepatitis incident, says that despite perceptions instilled by 49-buck daily deals, colonic lavage is an invasive medical procedure. It should be performed in a medically-run clinic by medically-trained practitioners au fait with infection control procedures. Many practitioners, James laments, are not medically trained.
Another way to distinguish between a colon cleanse diet and Colon Health and some other types of detox diets is what you are not allowed to have. It’s generally advised to shy away from dairy products, refined sugars of any sort, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, or anything else that is less than pure, whole, raw foods. This should be accompanied by plenty of water. Dehydration is often a major factor in how well the colon functions, because without adequate moisture, food or waste products may be more likely to cling to the colon walls, rather than passing through.
I know exactly what you mean about feeling “cleaner.” I don’t know if it’s a mental thing or if it’s physical — but there is definitely this sense of cleansed. 🙂 I am definitely looking forward to my next session. Every six months actually sounds like a good idea. I am so glad to know someone else that has actually done this and has something great to say! So far I’ve just been getting a lot of raised eyebrows. 😉
Sea salt: A common seasoning ingredient, sea salt is full of detoxifying properties. Mixing one tablespoon of sea salt in water and boiling it, then letting it cool, can be a great way to utilize the detoxifying properties of sea salt. However, too much salt water can cause diarrhea, so it is important to drink plenty of water and fresh juices throughout the day.

Flaxseeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. The daily consumption of flaxseeds is a sure shot way to cleanse your colon due to the combined laxative effect of its compounds. While the omega-3s are wonderful for your overall health, the antioxidants and fiber in flaxseeds can help increase your bowel movements to get rid of all the toxins from your body (21), (22), (23).

In the beginning we suggest performing a colon, liver, and kidney cleanse to clear the body’s pathways of elimination as this will help you achieve better results with the following harmful organism cleanse and chemical/ heavy metal detox. Here’s the entire overview of our program: https://www.globalhealingcenter.com/cleansing/nine-step-body-cleanse.html.

Plant-based diets containing generous amounts of vegetables, fruits, beans, seeds, nuts and whole grains are high in fibre, which is the essential, non-digestible component of food. A high-fibre diet supports a healthy digestive tract by sweeping debris from the colon, much like a broom. Fibre exercises the intestinal tract by stimulating peristalsis, the wave-like muscular contractions of the bowel that decrease bowel transit time. Fibre also holds moisture in the colon, softening the stool.
Just a note to tell you that I found Ms. Galivan’s comments truly offensive and misleading. Clearly, she knows nothing about UNI KEY nor the mission of the founder who is a stage IV cancer survivor. I hope this poster is aware that there is a free of charge FB page in which expert advice is generously given on a variety of non-UNI KEY product issues and concerns. NOBODY in the business offers this type of service. I think Galivan’s comments were very out of line. What good is identifying an issue without providing the solution, for heaven’s sake? As a nutritional professional myself, I would never recommend a product with 50 billion CFUs which is a recipe for constipation if ever there was one. In addition, I would never have the gall to post the name of a competing product on UNI KEY’s site, either. How rude and spiteful.
Most people need to drink more water. Water is the universal solvent, and an insufficient amount of it causes constipation and toxicity in the bowel and kidneys. Physical activity, fever, hot or dry climates and consumption of meat and salty foods all increase the need for water. The optimal amount varies widely, usually from six to 10 glasses a day. One useful formula is to drink half your weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds (55 kilograms), drink 60 ounces (eight glasses/two litres) of water per day. This can include pure water, herb tea or diluted fruit juices. Caffeinated beverages do not count because they are dehydrating. The best time to drink a glass of water is between meals or 20 minutes or more before eating; sip only small amounts with a meal. An important rule is: When thirsty, drink water not pop or other beverages.
It is important to increase your water intake while taking Super Colon Cleanse because the product is formulated with psyllium husk powder. If say, you experienced unusual side effects such as loose stool, abdominal pain, or diarrhea, stop taking Super Colon Cleanse immediately and have yourself checked by a doctor. Something more significant could be going on.
Apple juice: Considered one of the best home remedies for colon cleansing, drinking fresh apple juice encourages bowel movements, breaks down toxins, and improves the health of the liver as well as the digestive system. Drinking freshly squeezed apple juice followed by a glass of water 30 minutes later for at least three days can help cleanse the colon.
In the colon, water is squeezed out and absorbed from food remnants, leaving behind a mixture of non-digestible fibre, bacteria, bile acids and cells that have been scraped off the intestinal wall. If bowel transit time is too slow, bacteria and fungi proliferate and toxins are reabsorbed. A healthy colon eliminates waste within six to 18 hours after every meal this means having two or three bowel movements a day.
