The health & wellness arena has been a popular subject in recent years. Perhaps because of the growing problem of obesity, many people have been taking personal responsibility for their own wellness. Many natural heath professionals advise that colon cleansing is the first step to wellness.
Those squeamish like me don’t like to think about our colon and bowels. One of those nasty things that is disgusting to say the least. Yet with all the talk of cleansing your way to good health, this subject deserves a serious eye.
While conducting some online research, I was surprised to discover the wealth of information on the subject of colon cleansing. Many unbiased sources speak highly of the vitures of a clean colon. We should take notice.
Fecal matter often remains on the walls of the intestines. (Even that last sentence makes me cringe, but this information needs to be discussed.) The fecal remains draw parasites of all kinds. Those not averaging one bowel movement a day are more at risk. But even with a daily bowel movement, these parasites can build up.
Parasites in your bowels are obviously harmful to your body and form the foundation of many health problems. Just imagine what happens to rotting food in your garbage can and you’ll get an idea of the seriousness of fecal matter that remains for a lengthy period of time in your bowels.
Health professionals advise that a complete colon cleanse should be conducted yearly if not seasonal. A number of diets and products may be used in the colon cleansing procedure. A few involve fasting, and most involve the intake of one or more natural products. Depending upon the process used, it can take a week to a month to complete your colon cleanse.
Searching for colon cleanse recipes can be a bit like hunting for hay in a haystack, theres so many of them around that it can be just a little overwhelming! But while it might be simple enough to find a free colon cleanse recipe using the Internet, theres no guarantee that the homemade cleanser you end up with will be any good, or even match your particular needs. So while it might be eminently possible to make your own effective colon cleanser in the comfort of your own home, it makes sense to exercise some care before you start to purchase the ingredients suggested by a free colon cleaner recipe you stumble across on the internet.
As with any information you find, from any source, remember that it was put together by another mere mortal like yourself. Be sure to check the credentials of the writer of any colon cleanse recipe you find. Many free recipes have been put together by alternative health professionals, while some will simply be the result of the homemade trial and error of a concerned colon owner like yourself. Find out any details you can about the ingredients used in the recipes you find, and make sure they are generally considered safe for human consumption before you put them in your body.
That said, there are a few colon cleanse recipe ingredients that have stood the test of time quite well, and are generally thought to yield good results. These include such natural ingredients as psyllium husks or seeds, which offer the bulk your colon needs to cleanse itself of any build up of waste material, this ingredient is often found in the recipes of store-bought colon cleaners, a testimony to its safety and efficacy.
Probiotics are another frequent ingredient in both homemade and store-bought colon cleanse recipes, as they help to increase the natural occurrence of the good bacteria that live in your digestive system and help it to flourish. The long use of this ingredient should indicate to you that its presence in any free colon cleanse recipe you find is a good thing.
Many free colon cleanse recipes contain an extra ingredient that you will need to purchase from a particular vendor, and here is where you need to exercise some care. While the sellers of reputable products abound, there will always be some recipe purveyors who formulate cleansing programs and diets simply to sell their wares.
Most of these products simply contain the ingredients mentioned previously, along with other herbs that can be purchased at your local health food store, so always try to read the virtual label of any recommended product your find on the Internet before you add it to your cleansing recipe.
Creating your own colon cleansing recipe doesnt have to be a difficult task, and unless you have particular digestive trouble, sticking to a simple plan is best. If you are in any doubt, contact your alternative health practitioner, and never use a free colon cleansing recipe you are unsure of.
