5 Home Remedies For Natural Colon Cleansing The human colon is an important part of the body An article on PUBMED explains that the function of the colon includes the conservation of water and electrolytes as well as the controlled evacuation of feces

Extensive research has shown that the health of your colon can have a direct impact on your body’s overall metabolism With that said, an unhealthy colon can lead to serious conditions such as colon cancer According to the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosis They estimate that for 2018, there will be 97,220 new cases of colon cancer So, cleaning out your colon or finding a good way to cleanse is integral, however finding the healthiest solutions to clean out your colon can be tough, but there is one home remedy that may be able to help

But first, before we begin this video, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel for more daily tips like this and turn on notifications so you never miss our new videos! Alright, so let's talk about cleaning out that colon! Before we get into the remedy, we wanted to add that unhealthy diets and lifestyle choices can contribute to unhealthy colons and colon cancer An online Cleveland Clinic cancer risk assessment was conducted which included over 27,000 responses, MEDICAL DAILY reported The results were that less than 10% of the participants reported eating the daily recommended amount of fruit, vegetables, and grains, which are all essential to help clean out your colon The remedy that can help clean out your colon consists of four ingredients: one lemon, two tablespoons of Aloe Gel, one liter of water, and honey An expert by the name of DR

EDWARD GROUP III, who is the founder of the Global Healing Center, explains that lemons are a great choice for helping with digestion He explains that the colon is the final part of the digestion process, and because lemons contain pectin, which is a type of fiber that makes up the cell wall of many types of fruits, they are very beneficial to a proper digestion and healthy, clean colon The pectin slows down the speed of food that leaves the stomach and improves how it’s broken down, Dr Group added So even if you're not trying to achieve the peak of colon cleaning, you can still improve your digestion with this miracle citrus fruit

The second ingredient to this home remedy is Aloe Gel This gel contains barbaloin, which is a C-glucoside of aloe-emodin anthrone and is found in the plant Aloe Vera THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER MEDICAL CENTER explains that Aloe Vera has been used for many years in medicine It is mostly known for its healing abilities on cuts and burns, but they also mention that it can also be used as a laxative A healthy colon means that you have regular bowel movements, and because Aloe Vera contains barbaloin, the anthraquinones (organic compounds) can help stimulate your bowel movements and increase its tone

So, if you're looking to clean your colon, do something about colon cleaning or maybe just have a general cleanse, don't forget the Aloe Gel The next and final ingredient besides water (which we know is good in general) is Honey Honey is considered one of the best sources for weight loss; and according to LIVESTRONG, many people who do a colon cleanse often lose weight as well because they are able to clear out the waste from their intestines A study from a 2011 issue of NUTRITION RESEARCH touched bases on the effects of honey and sugar on obesity in rats and they found that the rats who were fed honey ate less and gained less weight In addition, according to a 2010 study published in the JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF NUTRITION, researchers compared the effects of honey and sugar in women

They found that honey had less of an effect on the blood sugar levels If your blood glucose levels are high, the body is unable to convert the food you eat into energy, which can cause overeating and excess amounts of toxins which, in turn, can cause constipation and an unhealthy colon Hmmm Honey for losing weight and lemons to help digestion are doctors and experts trying to get us to drink more tea? We could be down for that According to LONNY HOROWITZ, a board-certified bariatrician practicing in the Atlanta area, it’s like cleaning up a construction site

“The toxins are the unused junk that’s leftover, and our bodies remove this waste through sweat, urine, and stool,” reported USA NEWS Horowitz adds that if your body does not have enough fluids, the kidneys will not work efficiently, and all the toxins become more concentrated and difficult to force out Research done by some of the leading colon experts finds that this can have a negative effect on the body’s bowel functions A healthy colon needs regular bowel movements so it can remove waste and not leave any excess toxins, HOROWITZ says Alright, so now that we've examined every ingredient individually, here's finally how to prepare it

You’ve been very patient, and now we're going to tell you how to make this remedy First, you’ll want to squeeze the lemon in a bowl, then add the two tablespoons of fresh Aloe Vera and mix it well Once you’ve thoroughly mixed the two together, add the one liter of water and mix everything in a blender After you’ve blended everything together, add a bit of honey to sweeten the mix To help clean out your colon, take a glass of this first thing in the morning, and if you want to speed up the process, 30 minutes before each main meal

And there you have it! But that cannot possibly be the be all and REAR END all of colon care, right? Well no, so today we're going to go through a couple more things you can do to take good care of your derriere 1) Eat More Fiber We've all heard before that fiber makes you poop and if you haven't, well, you just heard it here It's true, fiber helps move waste along your digestive tract, which is great for keeping you regular and keeping your colon healthy So the question on everyone's mind is– how much of it should I eat if I wanna keep my colon cleansed? How much should I consume to make my digestion go smoother? Well, GAIAM

COM has the answer: 25-35 grams daily And don't worry, your diet won't be restricted, because there are a lot of foods that are really high in fiber, such as raspberries, bananas, prunes, peas, broccoli, beans, celery, and whole-wheat pasta So get out there and start pooping people! Or at least start eating more fiber 2) Vitamin D Apparently, there's nothing better than getting some sunshine for the place where the sun don't shine (kind of an odd idiom if that's the case, but what the heck)

Especially when you're trying to prevent colon cancer and attempting to keep up your colon's health, sunshine can be very advantageous If you don't believe us, believe THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION says that "a steady intake of Vitamin D is advantageous when trying to prevent colon cancer and maintain a healthy colon" They also say that 15 minutes in the sun is sufficient, but if you're having trouble getting that then foods like bread, fatty fish, milk, and cereal are chalked full of Vitamin D If that doesn't work, consider taking a supplement We wonder if they still make those in Flintstones shapes

3) Don't Hold It In We want to go on record saying: if you have to go poop, go poop We know there are some instances where this is impossible (while driving, while playing sports, working landscaping, at a new boyfriend's parent's house) but we cannot stress the importance of going when you need to go

Held in fecal matter can cause all sorts of issues for your body, like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or diverticulosis This is because poop left in your colon releases toxins into your body, which are, as the name implies, pretty toxic Don't worry, we have a tip for hiding poop smell– put a bunch of soap in the sink and run some water over it Hopefully, the smell of soap will cover the smell of well, waste 4) Colonoscopies Alright, we know there's nothing cool about getting a colonoscopy However, if you're looking for early detection of colon cancer, then a colonoscopy is probably your best bet

Especially if you're over 50, then the procedure is essential to keeping your colon healthy Not only if you're over 50, but if you experience constant diarrhea or constipation, you should definitely try to get some help from your doctor Those two afflictions can be signs of colon and intestinal problems So even though it sucks, just get it If you do this and the other things on this list, then your colon will thank you

During the colonoscopy it probably won't be too pleased but when you're given that clean bill of health you and your colon can rest easy And that's all for our list of colon care tips What about you?
