Signs That You Should Cleanse Your Colon, And Natural Ways to Do It

People suffering from skin disorders, allergies, weight gain, or poor concentration are often surprised at where the real source of their problem lies. So before you start taking medication for your ailments, why not take a look inside – specifically at the health of your colon.

A healthy colon is not only responsible for the excretion of waste but forms an essential part of your overall health and wellness. This complex ecosystem supports so many bodily functions, but often we aren’t aware of internal issues until they become major problems. And of course at that point, we start treating the symptom and ignore the cause.

Signs That You Need to Cleanse Your Colon

Do you suffer from any of these problems?

  • Excessive gas or bloating

  • Floating or stringy stools

  • Diarrhoea

  • Constant headaches

  • Nausea

  • Insomnia

  • Acne or other skin disorders

  • Poor memory or trouble concentrating

  • Cravings

  • Frequent bouts of colds or flu

  • Fatigue

  • Body odour or bad breath

Certainly, these may be symptoms of other illnesses and it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor instead of self-diagnosing.

However, these and other symptoms may be highlighting the fact that your colon health may be compromised and may need a little help in getting back to optimal health. A poor diet, stress, insufficient liquid intake and other lifestyle choices can prevent our colon from doing its job. Undigested waste can build up inside our bodies producing gas, bad odours and painful abdominal swelling.

There are several ways to cleanse your colon; obviously, we prefer the most natural options.

Natural Ways to Cleanse Your Colon

One of the first things to focus on is your liquid intake in the form of clean distilled water. Staying well hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body.

Colon-friendly foods include:

  • Broccoli

  • Apples (And apple cider vinegar)

  • Lemon

  • Garlic

  • Ginger

  • Chia seeds

It may be that you need a little help than an adjusted diet can afford. In this case, you may want to consider a colon cleanse – also called bowel irrigation. This manual process irrigates that colon, assisting in the removal of impacted waste and helps the body on its way to a healthy digestive system.
