Homemade Colon Cleanse: The Basics in 3 Steps

By Cindy Soto

You're considering a homemade colon cleanse because you already get the importance of your colon health to your overall well-being.

How can you have the energy and vitality you desire if your digestive system is out of order?

So, what are you hunting for in a homemade colon cleanse? On the internet you will find everything from recipes to herbs and raw eggs. Just be careful whose advice you choose to follow.

Here are 3 steps to think about before you go and try the next thing:

1 -- Do you find yourself running after the latest fads? Take a stand for your health, knowing at the end of the day it's up to you. Of course, you can seek advice from doctors and other professionals, but it's your health. And without health, what else is there?

2 -- You can buy colon cleansing products or study the ingredients and then buy them yourself for less. But ask yourself, how can you help your body address the root cause of any digestive issues you're facing?

For ongoing health and vitality you need to feed your body the nutrients it needs. And so the best homemade colon cleanse is actually eating as much raw, organic vegetables as you can. They contain all the fiber, enzymes and nutrients you need. And drink clean, toxin free water, at least half your body weight in ounces.

3 -- Now, address the colon directly. When you start eating and drinking the right things, you can still give a little push and help the colon eliminate the old waste that has been impacted in the colon walls. Give it a bath. If you've never done an enema, it may sound scary, but it's actually quite easy.

Enemas are gentle, but if you don't want to do this, consider going to a colon therapist for a deeper more thorough treatment.

Don't be fooled by the claims that it doesn't matter what you eat during a homemade colon cleanse. They may just be trying to sell you products. You know how vital it is to take charge of your food intake.

When you do some of these basic steps to help your body heal itself, things start happening for you. Your body is tremendous and self-healing. All it needs is a little help.
