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 had never taken medicine for constipation ever, but I was in so much pain that I finally decided to try the medicine. It didn't work at all! In fact, I feel worse. What can I do? I can't afford to go to the doctor. Is this an emergency or life threatening? Or will I eventually go? What other steps can I take?
Forget the Milk of Magnesia and get some Peri-Colace (or generic brand). Take the maximum recommended dose. It is a stimulant laxative combined with a stool softener. One you have relief start taking a stool softener everyday until your diet helps you produce softer stools.
The best way to reduce or eliminate constipation is:
- More water
- More fiber (naturally fibrous foods are best)
- More exercises like walking, running or bike riding
But when the medicines don't work, I take a 1 to 2 quart tap water enema.
