A number of health experts agree that most chronic diseases start in the gut. While it’s true that digestive problems are often linked to the stomach and intestines, a small part of the GI tract also plays a major role in proper body function – the colon.
For one thing, the colon is in charge of removing food waste from the body and regulating the body’s hydration process. Colon function can be compromised by chronic constipation, gut problems or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
While the intestines absorb nutrients from foods and prevent the absorption of harmful bacteria and toxins, the colon is in charge of eliminating fluids and sodium from this waste. Consequently, a poor diet and continual dehydration cause this waste from food to attach to the colon lining.
Needless to mention, the toxins that remain in your body affect your overall health. Over time, this sets grounds for polyp development, inflammation, and growth of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors in the colon.
How To Cleanse Your Colon
The home remedy we recommend here is extremely beneficial for eliminating all stuck-on waste from your colon. It’s also important to keep yourself hydrated throughout the treatment.
Consult a doctor before colon cleansing in case you’re pregnant, suffer from gastrointestinal pain or a disease.
- ½ cup 100% pure organic apple juice
- 2 tbsps. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp. fresh ginger juice
- ½ tsp. Himalayan salt
- ½ cup of warm purified water
Start by heating the filtered water over low heat in a small saucepan. Don’t boil it as it should be warm, but not too hot. If over-heated, leave it to cool a bit.
Transfer the water into a glass then add salt. Stir until well-dissolved.
In the end, add the apple, ginger, and lemon juice then stir again. Drink three times a day before each meal. Do the treatment for a week.
Lemons provide a range of antibacterial and antioxidant substances that protect against colon tissue damage. Plus, lemons are great for alkalizing the body and cleansing the liver.
Ginger is rich in cancer-fighting compounds that prevent the spread of cancerous cells thus protecting against colon cancer. In addition, ginger fights inflammation and boosts digestion.
Apple juice has more than 14 phytochemicals that inhibit colon cancer growth and neutralize free radical damage. Apple juice is rich in vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, potassium, and magnesium.
Himalayan salt is full of trace minerals that boost nerve function, ease inflammation, and eliminate pain. Plus, it improves muscle contraction to eliminate waste.
If you want to ensure optimal colon function, drink this colon cleanse juice once a week. Last, but not least, drink lots of water, consume plenty of fresh fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, and do regular exercise.
