What Is A Natural Colon Cleanse?
Natural Colon cleanse is an ancient medical practice used by the Greeks and is seeing a resurgence of sorts in the US now, as alternative medicine and herbal supplements gain more acceptance.
There are two main natural colon cleanse methods:
- One involves using supplements and products (enemas, laxatives, herbal teas, enzymes, magnesium) which triggers the colon’s expulsion process.
- The second is colon irrigation (high colonics) which works somewhat like an enema where a low-pressure pump or a gravity-based reservoir flushes several gallons of water through a small tube inserted into your rectum.
What Is The Theory Behind Natural Colon Cleansing?
Colon cleansing is based on an ancient belief called the theory of auto-intoxication which believes that undigested meat and other foods cause mucus buildup in the colon. The toxins generated by this mucus enter the blood’s circulation, poisoning the body causing a wide range of symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, weight gain, low energy, etc.
