The Reasons you’re Sick; How to Naturally Cleanse Your Colon

Denis Burkitt is an eminent British surgeon who has helped thousands of patients return to health by leading them successfully through the process of cleaning out their colons. Burkitt is an expert at knowing and understanding the reasons as well as the cause of your falling sick ‘most of the time’, that is. Hear him: “People get sick because of everyday toxins and heavy metals in their colons.”

Colon cleanse puts your health in great shape

Studies have revealed that once you are able to eliminate unwanted wastes and toxins out of your system, your sense of well-being is automatically renewed and you have joy for living. It is true that we live in a polluted world and this is obviously true of our water, the air we breathe especially with what we get in Nigeria in terms of inadequate power supply apart from rickety vehicular traffic, etc that pollute the air. Almost every home and business has one type of power generator or the other adding to the carbon emission in our atmosphere. The soil that grow our foods and the plants that grow from it are equally not spared the chemical and heavy metal contents.

Digestive system is key

Apart from getting ‘pollutions’ into our system mainly through our digestive tracts by the foods and drinks we take in, and the air we breathe, the foods that get rotten inside of us is the biggest issue here. Experts say not all the foods get digested passing through the colon. And most of the foods we eat are either very low or completely lacking in fibre, and so they tend to move very slowly through the digestive tract unlike foods that are high in fibre.

This is the problem; undigested foods are collected in the colon and will remain there and continue to accumulate for a long time unless something is done. After a period of time as a result, you are likely to experience the following signs and symptoms that make you sick - in many ways, or even develop chronic illness, all due to waste build-up in your colon. Remember, cleaning out your gut also is a sure way to prevent colon cancer.

  • Acne and skin diseases
  • Constipation
  • Indigestion and sluggish digestive system
  • Bloating (hard & swollen stomach)
  • Gas
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhoea
  • Food allergies
  • Piles
  • General weakness
  • Sleepiness
  • Bad mood
  • Overweight

Be healthy - keep your own 'gutter' clean

Clean Out Your Colon

1. Drink Water

First of all, one method you can use is to simply drink plenty of water. You can drink between 10 to 12 glasses of water within one day just for this purpose. Water taken regularly will give your body the fluid and lubrication necessary to flush out poisons and waste from your body naturally.
Plenty of water will help stimulate the natural peristaltic action: water will keep your body well hydrated and also help your food go through the natural digestive system.

2. Take Fresh Apple Juice

You can squeeze or extract fresh apple juice and drink. It will help your bowel movement as well as aid in the elimination of toxins which will improve the health of your liver and digestive system. Take a glass of this, and then a glass of water after about thirty minutes first thing in the morning. Do this a number of times a day for say, three days. For greater effect, you could avoid solid foods when doing this exercise.

3. Drink Lemon Juice

Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. It is therefore very good for your digestive system and the cleansing of your colon. You should mix a pinch of (sea) salt with lemon juice and a tablespoon of (real) honey in a glass of lukewarm water. Drink this on an empty stomach especially first thing in the morning.
Lemon has antioxidant properties and its high vitamin C content is good for the digestive system. Hence, lemon juice can be used for colon cleansing. Do it for three to four days continuously. It will give you good bowel movement, improved energy and good skin.

4. Take Raw Vegetable Juice

Try to avoid processed and cooked foods while you are on this. Freshly squeezed vegetables especially green-leafy vegetables will remove waste products from your system. You can make your raw vegetable juice from carrots, pumpkin leaves (Ugu), spinach, Kale, etc with a juicer, blender, or any other method. Also remember, you can take herbal teas as well.

5. Eat Fibre-rich Foods

Eating fibre-rich foods will make your stool soft and bowel movement easy and smooth; as a result it cleanses your colon of harmful toxins and expels other waste products. You get this from plenty of fruits and vegetables, and other foods like: pears, apples, beans, broccoli, whole grains and cereals, nuts, peas, cassava/gari, yam, sweet potatoes, etc.

6. Eat Yoghourt

Eating especially fresh yoghourt regularly will help clean out your guts, and maintain a healthy flora environment since it is a probiotic food. It will help introduce some healthy bacteria to your colon to promote digestion and fight inflammatory bowel infections. Eat yoghourt plain or add fruits with it.

9. Use Ginger root

Ginger root is readily available and like garlic, should not be lacking in your kitchen any day. Ginger will fight stomach bloating and therefore aid digestion and good bowel movement when it stimulates your colon and keep it free of harmful toxins. You can take ginger in any way – grated, crushed, cut in pieces, and you can make tea with it and drink regularly for colon cleansing.  Also, mix one teaspoon of ginger juice and one-quarter cup of lemon juice to two cups of hot water; add a little honey if you may. You should share this mixture and drink it all three times a day.
