Also, I suffer from a inherited condition that is called Peutz Jeghers syndrome which caused polyps to grow and they were removed by surgery about 30 years ago. I think it caused intestinal adhesion because it can take a long time to see watery stool after taking epsom salts when i did a liver flush (Moritz, haven’t done yours or any others yet as it did go well with this Moritz flush) I had to take pretty much of the epsom salts and that made me feel ill.
A gut cleanse is a necessary step in repairing a poor gut. Why? A good cleanse will replace foods that aggravate and compromise our gastrointestinal health with gut-friendly foods that do three things – ‘heal and seal’ the gastrointestinal tract; provide probiotics for healthy gut bacteria; and provide fibre for bowel health. Think of the gut like a car. A gut cleanse is like a service, and gut-friendly foods and supplements are like premium fuel.
This step may not sound particularly appealing, but it can be extremely beneficial and very effective. Many colon therapists perform high colonics or irrigation procedures within their offices on a daily basis. Although the procedure can be quite uncomfortable and take a reasonable length of time, it does take a relatively simple course, so you can know what to expect. Firstly, the therapist will gently insert a tube into your rectum which is attached to a pump that pushes water into your large intestine. Once your colon has been completely saturated, the therapist will remove the initial tube and insert another, then massage your abdomen so that waste and water is expelled from your colon.
Aside from juice or vegetable-rich diets, there are other foods that are often included within a colon cleanse diet Whole grains are a good way to bulk up internal waste and help move it out of the system in a quick and efficient manner. This includes brown rice, sprouted wheat, and grains such as amaranth and quinoa that are easy to digest yet provide essential energy. It’s recommended when on a colon cleanse diet to stay away from excessive spices or too many ingredients. Raw, whole foods tend to be the best way to go for purifying and detoxifying your system.
For many people with colon related issues, like irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease, gluten wreaks havoc on the digestive system. Even if you don't have one of these conditions, gluten may still contribute to inflation in your gut and colon. If you don’t want to cut out all grains from your diet, there are some great gluten-free alternatives like quinoa that also contain fiber and colon-friendly nutrients.
Fennel seed is a carminative herb that helps reduce colic, gas, indigestion, intestinal disorders, nausea, and flatulence,20 while at the same time improving assimilation. It also can help break up kidney stones and uric acid in the tissues and is therefore used in treating gout. Fennel seed will help clear mucus and phlegm from the lungs, and it will also help rid the intestinal tract of mucus. Its tissue cleansing properties also have a cleansing effect on the gallbladder and liver. Fennel is very effective for cancer patients after radiation and chemotherapy. It can even be used to quiet hiccups and effectively reduce or eliminate intestinal gas.
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.
Constipation is no laughing matter. If you aren’t moving your bowels after every meal you eat, then you are, by definition, constipated. Your body has a reflex, known as the gastrocolic reflex, which stimulates movement in the colon when you start eating. The amount of food you eat and the temperature of your food and drinks affect the strength of this reflex. With high fat meals and cold drinks the reflex is stronger, producing a bowel movement more quickly. Caffeine and fructose may also speed up this reflex to the point of being uncomfortable. This is where Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) starts for many people.
Mucoid plaque is not actually a recognized scientific term, but is used to describe any hardened materials that are “cemented” to the walls of the colon. That said, a good colon detoxifier product has natural mucilaginous properties that will soften old hardened fecal matter and any plaque-like material adhering to the walls of the colon for easy removal and also provide an excellent remedy for any inflammation or irritation in the stomach and intestines.
If any of these symptoms occur, stop your cleanse immediately and see your doctor. These symptoms have the risk of leading to heart failure and digestive damage if the cleanse is continued. An enema or colon cleanse used occasionally poses little risk for a healthy individual. But overuse can quickly lead to chronic constipation or even bowel injury.
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.
Because your colon processes food waste, it is constantly bombarded by toxins. These may include pesticides from non-organic foods, toxins found in processed meats, or even environmental pollutants in the air and water. Left unchecked, these may accumulate and contribute to unwanted colon issues. Colon cleansing is one of the best ways to encourage your body’s internal detoxification processes and eliminate harmful organisms.
As a former medical examiner, I'm in agreement with the protocols suggested. Question: Given the toxic environment of most people's colons etc., can the sudden or even gradual removal of toxins exacerbate health problems in people with "leaky gut"...wherein great amounts of toxic materials, once mobilized...enter the blood stream suddenly and potentially cause anxiety, depression or even damage vital organs?

I get colonics every six months. I usually do them in three sessions increments. I love them. I have heard over doing them van be bad as they do flush out good bacteria but I think doing them as part of a spring cleaning and cleanse is very beneficial. I would highly recommend them. You just reminded me that it’s time for me to schedule my series. I’m glad you tried it. I’ve never done it for weight loss so I have never actually weighed myself. I will have to try it. I do feel like I have more energy and almost cleaner. If you can even feel that! Ha! Thanks for sharing! The dangers of colon cleansing
