Talking about constipation, diarrhea and other diseases caused by ignoring the health of our colon is definitely not something we enjoy. But, learning how to avoid them could be very helpful.
In fact, avoiding these problems can help you prevent many serious health problems resulting from a toxic colon.
Having a toxic, or unhealthy colon can make you sick and harm your overall health in ways you can’t imagine. It can lead to various digestive problems from diarrhea, constipation, and hemorrhoids, to serious conditions such as GERD and inflammatory bowel disease.
LEMON – GINGER – APPLE COLON CLEANSING MIXTURE
- 1 tablespoon of organic ginger juice
- 1 cup of organic apple juice
- ½ a cup of purified water
- 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
- ½ a teaspoon of sea salt
Heat the water in a saucepan and once it boils reduce the heat. Then, add the sea salt and stir until it’s completely dissolved. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Where do you think the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ comes from? Well, maybe it’s not just for the colon, but it did come from the idea that whole foods, such as the nutrition-rich apple, brings good health, and a healthy colon brings good health.
In fact, a study shows that those who ate an apple a day had fewer visits to the doctor, and fewer prescription medications.
Ginger is great because it lessens bloating while boosting the colon, keeping it free from wastes and bad toxins. And don’t forget about the amazing lemon! Lemon juice helps digestion, detoxification, and is high in vitamin C, making it a great antioxidant.
Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Then have this mixture again just before a light lunch, like steamed vegetables and baked salmon, and again mid-afternoon. Have 6- 8 glasses of warm water throughout the day. It may be best to slow down the number of liquids you drink after 5 p.m. so that you don’t wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.
Using this type of colon cleanse should not be a problem, however, it is always good to check with your doctor before trying anything new, if you are pregnant, have a disease, have allergies, or are taking any prescription medications.
Do not drink this juice if you are diabetic because of the high amount of natural sugar in apple juice. It’s best to do this for one day, or a week at most.
