10 Super Easy Colon Cleansing Plans (#5 Is Mind Blowing!)
Today we are going to talk about the colon. It is almost impossible to talk about the colon and not talk about poop, so let’s just be upfront about this fact right now.
So while most American adults understand what the colon does, most do not know that the prevention of many diseases can be accomplished by removing the build-up of fecal matter, parasites, and mucus deposits in the colon.
Over the typical lifetime of seven decades, an average person’s intestines process more than 100 tons of food and 45,000 liters of liquids. This can mean as much as 15 pounds of fecal matter that is filled with toxic waste that can build up in the stomach and colon. This accumulation can lead to dangerous toxins in the blood and cause damage to the body.
If you pay attention to your body, it will tell you when something is wrong. Signs that we are carrying around a great deal of contamination such as liver disease, kidney disease, excessive weight gain, vision problem, frequent constipation, diabetes, skin, hair and nail issues, as well as a disturbed metabolism.
An enema only reaches about two feet of the colon. More intense enema treatments are expensive, time consuming and upset the natural bacterial balance in the colon.
The good news is that, simply by eating certain foods and consuming beverages, you can naturally remove the excessive buildup of fecal matter inside the colon.

1. Flaxseed and Kefir
Rather than eat breakfast, over the next three-week period, you should consume the following:
Week 1: Mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds and 8 ounces of kefir. Drink this rather than eat breakfast.
Week 2: Mix 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 8 ounces of kefir.
Week 3: Mix 3 tablespoons of ground flaxseed in 12 ounces of kefir.
Flaxseed absorbs water and acts like a broom once it hits the colon, sweeping away toxins and accumulated waste. Kefir is high in healthy probiotics, and this will help to restore the natural balance in the colon.

Ginger is a terrific way to stimulate the colon to perform its natural function and remove excessive waste. Ginger will stimulate the digestive process as well by stimulating the secretion of digestive enzymes and bile. Drinking ginger tea at least twice each day is a great way to remove excess fecal matter from the colon. You can actually consume ginger any way you like, such as adding it to a juice or cutting fresh pieces and sucking on them throughout the day.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera juice is well known for being a natural yet mild laxative. Aloe vera is also one of the world’s best detoxification foods. Combined, this makes for a powerful cleansing plan. Add the gel from one large leaf (just the clear gel, not the green part of the plant) and the juice from one lemon in a small container and mix well. Drink once each day for one week. Repeat twice each year.

4. Lemon Juice
For more energy, better digestive health and improved bowel movements, simply mix the juice from one organic lemon into one glass of water along with a pinch of sea salt. Drink this each morning on an empty stomach.
5. Apples and Apple Juice
Fresh apple juice and fresh, organic apples are one of the easiest and best way to cleanse the colon. Most people think of apple juice as something for children, but apple juice encourages bowel movements, which will break down toxins and improve the overall health of the liver. Be sure to drink pure, no sugar added, organic apple juice at least twice each day. Alternatively, eating whole apples, including the skin, is another terrific way to naturally sweep the colon clean with the pectin and high fiber that is in every single apple. Pick any variety you like, and eat at least two apples each day.

6. Sea Salt
Natural sea salt contains trace minerals and powerful detoxification compounds that work together to effectively cleanse the colon of toxins and excess waste. Boil one glass of water with one tablespoon of sea salt. Mix well. Once it has cooled, drink this first thing in the morning. Repeat once each week for a one month period. This might give you diarrhea for one day, but don’t worry. This only means that it is doing the job of removing excess waste. If you are on a low-salt diet or have high blood pressure, use another method.
7. Raw Vegetable Juice
Drinking freshly squeezed vegetable juice twice each day can help to remove toxins. Chlorophyll is a super detoxifier and the high level of vitamins and minerals in green vegetables will fill you with energy. Drink an 8 ounce glass of green vegetable juice twice each day for a one week period. Repeat twice each year.

Eating plain, unsweetened yogurt with live, active cultures is another good way to keep the colon healthy. Yogurt is full of probiotics, which introduce millions of good bacteria into your entire digestive system as well as the colon. This fights inflammatory bowel diseases and inhibits the growth of cells inside the colon. Eat a minimum of two servings of unsweetened yogurt each day.
9. Eat a High Fiber Diet
Of course we don’t mean that you should consume sawdust or sand, but eating a diet that is rich in high fiber foods will naturally cleanse the colon and keep it clean! High fiber foods such as peas, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and artichokes, nuts, seeds, and beans act like scrub brushes in the colon, removing waste, toxins, and parasites.

10. Green Tea
Green tea is overflowing with powerful and unique antioxidants, which improves the overall function of the bowels while it cleanses the colon at the same time. Green tea is also surprisingly high in vitamin C, which supports the immune system, so the body can naturally remove toxins like it is designed to do. Drinking each day three cups of freshly brewed green tea can detox the body, cleanse the colon, and probably cause you to drop a few pounds all at the same time! Who could ask for more?
If you are under a doctor’s care or if you are taking any medications, please consult with your physician before starting any type of colon cleansing program.
