Since ancient times, various colon cleanse products have been used to eliminate the toxins that may build up in the colon after your body finishes digesting meat, fruit or any other foods. This increase in toxic substances can lead to “autointoxication,” meaning that the toxins that have built up in the colon could end up in your blood stream and cause poisoning, discomfort and be generally bad for your health. Some symptoms these substances can also lead to include headaches, low energy and fatigue, and even weight gain.
Methods of cleansing your colon
Nowadays, there are two principal ways in which you could have your colon cleaned. You may visit a local practitioner to have something called colon irrigation, or you could use over-the-counter forms of colon cleanse products. You decide what is best. Using these products yourself, however, saves you the time, money and, ultimately, the uncomfortable visit(s) to the doctor.
The products themselves come in the form of supplements you can take by mouth or administer rectally. Ideally, the substances help dislodge any build-up in the colon, removing toxins in the process. These products (such as laxatives, herbal teas, magnesium etc.) can be found anywhere from pharmacies to supermarkets, or you could search for them online.
- Laxatives help with any digestive discomfort you may have.
- Herbal teas have more or less the same effect and help keep a properly functioning digestive system, besides being healthy in general.
- Magnesium acts as a hydrating agent; it aids the body in warding off constipation and also helps with any difficult bowel movements.
Of course, it is always a good idea to consult your physician before making any drastic changes in your diet or before using any of the above medication. The whole idea is to keep yourself healthy by using colon cleanse products.
