How to Cleanse Your Colon Naturally
I believe that a Colon Cleanse should be natural and done the least invasive way possible. How can you tell that it's time to do a Colon Cleanse? When your colon, which is the large intestine, is working properly, women should be having a bowel movement at least twice a day, men (who usually eat a bit more) should be having three bowels movements daily. If you are not having sufficient bowel movements, it is a sure sign of toxicity. That means that you are extremely constipated and you're colon is full of toxins that have been building up over time. It's important for your health that these toxins are released and that you get your bowels moving regularly.
First, check your diet and make sure you are getting enough fiber. I created VitaMucil to make that even easier. There are two types of fiber: soluble and non-soluble. VitaMucil is 100% natural psyllium fiber, finely ground, making it gentle on the colon. You take two capsules twice a day with a full glass of water. The psyllium increases its volume 10x, so that it acts like little brushes on the intestinal wall, cleaning off old fecal matter and debris that has built up over time. Making this part of your daily routine ensures that the bowels start to move naturally. You are cleansing from the inside out.
Next, your diet should be full of raw fruits and vegetables. I know that many of us, including myself, are so busy that sometimes this isn't possible.& Rather than not having any raw produce due to time constraints, I created our VitaFruits and VitaVeggies. Together, they provide approximately 7 extra servings of raw fruits and vegetables. I certainly still suggest everyone eats plenty of fresh raw fruits and vegetables, but with VitaFruits and VitaVeggies, this makes it so much easier to fill in the gaps.
Then, it's important to avoid the foods that can plug up your digestive system. Things like wheat, sugar and dairy. By minimizing your intake of these foods, you help ensure that your colon can function optimally.
On the other hand, coffee can help to stimulate the colon. I recommend 1 good cup of coffee daily (more has the reverse effect). Usually in the morning is best.
Finally, there is detoxification. It's so important to detoxify, not only the colon, but all the internal organs regularly. I created VitaDetox, which is gentle and safe, containing natural ingredients that won't have you running to the bathroom all the time. Most colon cleanses only take care of the colon. It's important to cleanse all the internal organs and not just the colon. Otherwise, the other organs (like the kidneys, the liver, the lungs could still be toxic, causing headaches, skin problems, hormone issues, etc. I recommend taking the Vita Detox for two months, then taking a month break before repeating. That way, toxins don't have a chance to build up at all.
Not only will your colon work more optimally, but all your internal organs will benefit. As I've always said, your health is in your hands.You can rid yourself of toxins naturally and feel healthy and light, enjoying the Vita Life!
