I would love to cleanse my colon! However drinking only lemonade for ten days doesn’t seem to be a safe way to do things (I live in Arizona and trust me, when it is 120 outside you don’t want to be running on E). Is there a safe and effective method for colon cleansing that includes some food?
TY anyone in advance!
This is a great question and having done all sorts of cleanses, plus lived in AZ, I agree that fasting on lemon drink is the last thing you want to do.
There is a great website detailing some other easy ways to cleanse the colon at home including the high fiber diet, raw foods diet and homemade herbal cleansing. Here it is:
I myself use a great product from New Zealand once a year to complete my cleansing:
Best of luck to you!
I am currently soaking some dried split peas, but they will take a little while to moisten. Will lettuce work until then? Will the constipation kill my fish if I don't take care of it soon, and if so, how long do I have?
Penny, read the answers to my question about my Black Moore.
I'm worried about fasting my fish because I have other fish in there. I have a couple more fancy goldfish and a shubunking. I also have a loach that eats every day…. I have no quaranteen tank.
Okay, see, the reason that your fish are constipated is because they are eating too much. The food goes in, but it's not coming out. So, don't worry that you need to feed them something. You need to give them time for that food to want to come out. Actually, a fish should be fasted for 3 days before the peas are fed anyway. So, use this time to fast your fish. Yes, the constipation could kill your fish, but mostly only if you keep overfeeding them. It's really impossible to say how long this could take one way or the other. Just take it one step at a time. Fast for 3 days, then feed the peas, mashed a little if necessary (split peas already have the skins removed), for 3 days. Then see how they're doing from there. If they're still bloated, it could be swim bladder disorder, as they mentioned in your first question, so then the treatment would have to go from there.
