Did you know the average American may be carrying as much as 10-25 pounds of impacted fecal matter in their colon, pretty gross right?

We aren’t talking about rare individuals, these are average weight people with no known allergies! These toxins wedged in the digestive track are absorbed by the bloodstream, resulting in the body’s inability to metabolize food properly or to provide vital energy for living.

Think you’re in the clear? There is a surprisingly wide range of health problems that colon toxicity contributes to, many that a lot of us experience every day. These include bloating, constipation, gas, fatigue, food cravings, hypoglycemia, allergies, arthritis, difficult weight loss and many others. As you may have been trying to cure or treat these symptoms individually, it’s important to recognize and cure the root cause.

Signs & Benefits of a Health Colon

 A healthy colon should provide you with two to three bowel movements per day, shortly after each meal. Elimination should be complete, fast and easy.

The stool should be light brown in color, long and large in diameter, fluffy in texture, and floating on the top of the water. Yes, I went there. You should be having glorious bowel movements!

  • Common symptoms of excess toxicity:  bad breath, coated tongue, frequent fatigue, headaches, cellulite, inability to lose excess weight, bowel problems, digestive problems, allergies, high cholesterol, and acne.
  • Cleansing our bodies internally can have significant impact on our appearance. Inner health is reflected in glowing skin, shining hair & bright eyes.
  • Detoxification is the means by which the body rids itself of any unwanted chemicals. These chemicals can be the waste products of our own body processes and of bacteria and foreign bodies, such as germs, that inhabit your intestines.
  • As a society, we tend to be constipated. Only 1 in 3 people evacuate their bowels daily. To eliminate toxins from the bowels efficiently, we need to have healthy bowels movements daily.

5 Simple Tips to Cleanse the Natural Way:

1.) Up your Fiber

A diet high in fiber of up to 40 grams a day, both soluble and insoluble, to slow the emptying time of the stomach and move feces through the intestines quicker by bulking it up. You can add fibrous foods into each meal. Have oatmeal for breakfast, lentils in your raw salad for lunch, berries for snacks, and a big stir fry vegetable bowl for dinner.

You can also take Pura Cleanse or Pura Cleanse II which:

  • promotes healthy bowel regulation
  • gives comprehensive support for the liver, lungs, lymphatic system, kidneys, skin, and blood
  • contains 17+ herbs that aid in detoxification and promote elimination from the colon
  • includes 10+ soothing herbs including slippery elm, marshmallow root, aloe vera, catnip, cinnamon and ginger to help soothe and comfort the bowel
  • includes more than 6 herbs to assist in rebuilding the bowel

2.) Eliminate

Eliminate all things contributing to the problem: all processed foods, sugar, white flour, alcohol, caffeine, food additives, colorings, preservatives, fruit and vegetables treated with pesticides and most dairy.

3.) Hydrate

It is essential to drink 8 – 10 glasses of pure, filtered water each day. If you believe you are really backed up, drink 3 glasses of water before breakfast to really get things flushed out quickly.

4.) Get Moving

Exercise speeds up bowel action and encourages healthy elimination.

5.) Supplements

Take digestive enzymes after each meal to normalize digestion and break down protein that can remain in the colon. Papaya and pineapple enzymes are a sure fire hit.

Any bowel detoxification program should last between 1 – 3 months depending on the severity of the symptoms, and should be as strict as possible. Generally speaking, most people can benefit from a colon cleanse four times a year, but emphasis must be on prevention and dietary changes.

Make sure your immune system is in tip-top shape because those nasty toxins making their way out of your body can create some nasty side effects. You may experience a severity of your symptoms in the beginning, as well as foul smelling stools, headaches and light-headedness. These are no cause for alarm, usually the worse your reaction, the more crap you have in your body (pun intended).

While colon cleansing is not a weight-loss procedure, dropping weight is often a welcomed side effect! All the fiber is especially useful in providing a feeling of fullness and decreased appetite.
