Considering a Colon Cleanse? do this first

Colon Cleanse Program It is a reality that most of us have food, the major portion of which contains caffeine, sugars, red meat, and white flours. Our foods contain an abundance of saturated fats and animal protein as well.

What do these foods do to our colon?

You would be surprised that it impacts the fecal mater which gradually clogs the colon and makes us sick.

You might wonder why these fecal matters can not be disposed by the body through the normal excretory process.

While the body tries its best to remove all toxic wastes naturally, there are large portions of excreta which gets deeply embedded in the lining of the colon, which the body can not remove by it self, unless external help is provided.

This is the reason why colon cleansing, at least once a year is of paramount importance if you want to keep healthy and have a healthy colon.

What to Do First

While the importance of a colon cleanse can not be undermined, there are many ways you could go about it. The first and the most important point where you should start is to bring about some radical changes in your diet by taking away some of the things which you eat on a regular basis and replace them with whole grains, lots of fruits and vegetables and add extra fiber.

When you are adding extra fiber, ensure that you take at least 30 grams of it. These are easily available as fiber supplements and are usually tasteless and odorless which make it palatable to a tongue which is not used to having it regularly.

Any colon cleansing program must start with a change in the diet as some of the foods must be eliminated and replaced with healthier foods.

Over and above eating the right kind of foods you must also have adequate quantities of water or fluid. What is the quantity which is deemed adequate? You should drink half of your weight in ounces of water.

For example if you weigh 200 pounds, ensure that you drink at least 100 ounces of water or fluid every day. When you drink the right quantity of water and couple it with increased fiber in your diet, your colon would start to function normally and your bowel movements would be regularized.

Though these two changes should help your colon to function better and should make a significant change in which your colon responds and behaves, a colon cleansing program is a must for you to do as a follow up action.

You should insist on colon cleansing products which have natural ingredients which provide additional benefits to the cleansing exercise. Herbal products are considered excellent colon cleansing aid.

Once you have activated all these changes in your daily diet and colon cleanse program, you would notice how your body functions better and you feel healthier and more active.
