Colon Cleanse - The Truth About Colon Cleansing and Detoxification


Visitors: 220

Colon cleansing can be described as the combined mechanisms of removing all waste materials from the walls and inside space of the colon while colon detoxification can be said to be the removal of toxins, including non beneficial micro organisms from the colon system. Both Colon cleansing and detoxification works together to get rid of fecal or waste materials from the colon as well as the digestive organs of the human system. The reason why an individual needs colon cleansing and detoxification is the unhealthy diet which we consume on daily basis. Foods such as fatty meats, cheese, sugary foods, and excessively preserved foods are usually hard to breakdown or digest in the colon, hence they should be disposed off somehow from the colon, and otherwise the colon will develop complications.

The colon protects itself from unhealthy foods by secreting mucus and sludge, the continuous production of the sludge and mucus to protect itself will later result in the colon unable to pass out waste materials from the body. These mucus and sledge produce by the colon and only beneficial for the colon to protect itself but they tend to be harmful after sometimes because they will harbor toxins, hence the colon requires constant cleansing and detoxification. If colon cleansing and detoxification is not performed on the colon, the sledges and mucus will continue to release toxins into the blood stream and cause health complications such as allergies and illnesses including excessive gain in weight, joint and muscle pains and many more.

Colon cleansing and detoxification can be done in several ways. One of the commonest ways is the use of the enema therapy. This involves the passage of water through the anus unto the walls of the colon for some minutes before releasing it into the toilet. This colon cleansing and detoxification method is quite effective but it gets messy as time goes on . This therapy is quite injurious to the digestive tracts and it can only remove some layers of the waste materials from the walls of the colon which means it is not effective. The use of colonics for colon cleansing and detoxification has been found to be more effective than the Enema. Just like the Enema, water is passed through the anus unto the colon but with the use of colonics, a closed water removing technique is used instead of an open one in the Enema. The use of colonics is much less painful and messy.

The uses of herbal supplements are usually preferred by those who don't want water to be passed in to their system with the colonics and the Enema system. Herbal supplements are taken like food. They are however not too effective because of their laxative effects. They also can only remove some parts of the waste materials and can even cause some side effects after prolong usage. Hence they can not be used for a long time.

Colon cleansing and detoxification is done best when a trained specialist is contacted for pre-examination before taking any colon cleansing and detoxification therapy.
