Does anyone know a natural remedy for a colon cleanser?

Posted by admin on Wednesday 21 October 2009

I have been trying to gather the most natural remedies to cleanse my colon I feel very sluggish and backed up. I know my colon is a mess. What can I do?

Fasting is the master remedy. Know how to do your fast and how to break it.

Fasting refers to complete abstinence from food for a short or long period for a specific purpose. The word is derived from the old English, ‘feastan’ which means to fast, observe, be strict. Fasting is nature’s oldest, most effective and yet least expensive method of treating disease. It is recognised as the cornerstone of natural healing. Dr. Arnold Eheret, the originator of the musculus diet healing system, describes it as " nature’s only universal and omnipotent remedy of healing" and "nature’s only fundamental law of all healing and curing."

Fasting in disease was advocated by the school of natural philosopher, Asclepiades, more than two thousand years ago. Throughout medical history, it has been regarded as one of the most dependable curative methods. Hippocrates, Galen, Paracelsus, and many other great authorities on medicine prescribed it. Many noted modern physicians have successfully employed this system of healing in the treatment of numerous diseases.

The common cause of all diseases is the accumulation of waste and poisonous matter in the body which results from overeating. The majority of persons eat too much and follow sedentary occupations which do not permit sufficient and proper exercise for utilisation of this large quantity of food. This surplus overburdens the digestive and assimilative organs and clogs up the system with impurities or poisons. Digestion and elimination become slow and the functional activity of the whole system gets deranged.

The onset of disease is merely the process of ridding the system of these impurities. Every disease can be healed by only one remedy-by doing just the opposite of what causes it, i.e., by reducing the food intake or fasting.

By depriving the body of food for a time, the organs of elimination such as the bowels, kidneys, skin, and lungs are given opportunity to expel, unhampered, the overload of accumulated waste from the system. Thus, fasting is merely the process of purification and an effective and quick method of cure. It assists nature in her continuous effort to expel foreign matter and disease producing waste from the body, thereby correcting the faults of improper diet and wrong living. It also leads to regeneration of the blood as well as the repair and regeneration of the various tissues of the body.

Duration: The duration of the fast depends upon the age of the patient, the nature of the disease and the amount and type of drugs previously used. The duration is important, because long periods of fasting can be dangerous if undertaken without competent professional guidance. It is, therefore, advisable to undertake a series of short fasts of two to three days and gradually increase the duration of each succeeding fast by a day or so. The period, however, should not exceed a week of total fasting at a time. This will enable the chronically sick body to gradually and slowly eliminate toxic waste matter without seriously affecting the natural functioning of the body. A correct mode of living and a balanced diet after the fast will restore vigour and vitality to the individual.

Fasting is highly beneficial in practically all kinds of stomach and intestinal disorders and in serious conditions of the kidneys and liver. It is a miracle cure for eczema and other skin diseases and offers the only hope of permanent cure in many cases. The various nervous disorders also respond favourably to this mode of treatment.

Fasting should, however, not be restored to in every illness. In cases of diabetes, advanced stages of tuberculosis, and extreme cases of neurasthenia, long fasts will be harmful. In most cases, however, no harm will accrue to fasting patients, provided they take rest, and are under proper professional care.

Methods: The best, safest and most effective method of fasting is juice fasting. Although the old classic form of fasting was a pure water fast, most of the leading authorities on fasting today agree that juice fasting is far superior to a water fast. According to Dr. Rangar Berg, the world -famous authority on nutrition, "During fasting the body burns up and excretes huge amounts of accumulated wastes. We can help this cleansing process by drinking alkaline juice instead of water while fasting … Elimination of uric acid and other inorganic acids will be accelerated….. And sugars in juices will strengthen the heart… juice fasting is, therefore, the best form of fasting. " Vitamins, minerals, enzymes and trace elements in fresh, raw vegetable and fruit juices are extremely beneficial in normalising all the body processes. They supply essential elements for the body’s own healing activity and cell regeneration and thus speeding the recovery. All juices should be prepared from fresh fruit immediately before drinking. Canned or frozen juices should not be used.

A precautionary measure which must be observed in all cases of fasting is the complete emptying of the bowels at the beginning of the fast by enema so that the patient is not bothered by gas or decomposing matter formed from the excrements remaining in the body. Enemas should be administered at least every alternate day during the fasting period. The patient should get as much fresh air as possible and should drink plain lukewarm water when thirsty. Fresh juices may be diluted with pure water. The total liquid intake should be approximately six to eight glasses.

A lot of energy is spent during the fast in the process of eliminating accumulated poisons and toxic waste materials. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that the patients get as much physical rest and mental relaxation as possible during the fast. In cases of fasts in which fruit juices are taken, especially when fresh grapes, oranges or grapefruit are used exclusively, the toxic wastes enter the blood -stream rapidly, resulting in an overload of toxic matter, which affects normal bodily functions. This often results in dizzy spells, followed by diarrhoea and vomiting. If this physical reaction persists, it is advisable to discontinue the fast and take cooked vegetables containing adequate roughage such as spinach and beets until the body functioning returns to normal.

The overweight person finds it much easier to go without food. Loss of weight causes no fear and the patient’s attitude makes fasting almost a pleasure. The first day’s hunger pangs are perhaps the most difficult to bear. The craving for food will, however, gradually decrease as the fast progresses. Seriously sick persons have no desire for food and fasting comes naturally to them. The simple rule is to stop eating until the appetite returns or until one feels completely well.

Only very simple exercises like short walks may be undertaken during the fast. A warm water or neutral bath may be taken during the period. Cold baths are not advisable. Sun and air baths should be taken daily. Fasting sometimes produces a state of sleeplessness which can be overcome by a warm tub bath, hot water bottles at the feet and by drinking one or two glasses of hot water.

Benefits: There are several benefit of fasting. During a long fast, the body feeds upon its reserves. Being deprived of needed nutrients, particularly of protein and fats, it will burn and digest its own tissues by the process of autolysis or self-digestion. But it will not do so indiscriminately. The body will first decompose and burn those cells and tissues which are diseased, damaged, aged or dead. The essential tissues and vital organs, the glands, the nervous system and the brain are not damaged or digested in fasting. Here lies the secret of the effectiveness of fasting as a curative and rejuvenative method. During fasting, the building of new and healthy cells are speeded up by the amino acids released from the diseased cells. The capacity of the eliminative organs, that is, lungs, liver, kidneys, and the skin is greatly increased, as they are relieved of the usual burden of digesting food and eliminating the resultant wastes. They are, therefore, able to quickly expel old accumulated wastes and toxins.

Fasting affords a physiological rest to the digestive, assimilative and protective organs. As a result, the digestion of food and the utilisation of nutrients is greatly improved after fasting. The fast also exerts a normalising, stablising, and rejuvenating effect on all the vital physiological, nervous and mental functions.

Breaking of Fast: The success of the fast depends largely on how it is broken. his is the most significant phase. The main rules for breaking the fast are: do not overeat, eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly; and take several days for the gradual change to the normal diet. If the transition to eating solid foods is carefully planned, there will be no discomfort or damage. The patient should also continue to take rest during the transition period. The right food after a fast is as important and decisive for proper results as the fast itself.

Hope this helps, Good Luck.

    The most natural would be ingesting prunes. Coconuts & it’s milk are also natural laxatives that can help clean you out. Drink plenty of water though so the "flow" would be smoother.References :

    It sounds like you are looking for an herbal cleanse. Good idea, but don’t gather the remedies yourself without solid advice from an herbalist or naturopath. Remembering that herbs are medicine too should be a good reason to be careful. However, go to your neighborhood health food store and tell the folks there you want a gentle herbal detox formula for a full system cleanse. They will know what you should do, and get you involved in the decision-making process. You’re on the right track.References :

    the absolute easiest way for me to get cleaned out is to go on a 3-5 day juice fast (I do eat a light healthy meal in the evening with my family). That is the easiest and most economical way I have found. It also isn’t harsh. I have never had cramping, or had any severe side effects. Whatever you choose, best to you!References :

It is the richest natural source of Vitamin C. 100 gm. of Amla contains about 700 mg. of vitamin C, which is thirty times the amount found in oranges.In adition to Vitamin C, it also contains calcium, iron, protein, garlic and tannic acids, sugar, phosphorus, carbohydrates etc. The juice of fresh amla fruit is given as tonic, diuretic and anti-bilious remedy.

    A great overall detox is called "The Master Cleanser" by Stanley Burroughs. It’s also known as the lemonade diet. It cleanses not just the colon, but also the blood and other organs as well. It consists of lemon juice, cayenne, and pure maple syrup. At night you drink an herbal laxative tea and in the morning, you drink sea salt water. This all may sound disgusting to you, but it’s really not that bad at all. (It also aids with flushing fat from your system, reducing your weight about a pound/day!) 2x/year keeps your whole system clear of toxins. Try it!References : "The Master Cleanser" by Stanley Burroughs- $4.95 @ Barnes and Noble.

    We use Dr. Richard Schultze’s colon cleanse about 3 times a year (each). He has been formulating and educating people about health and responsible eating for over 20 years. He received much of his training from Dr. Christopher (a pioneer in natural remedies).

    He has awesome resources (books, CDs, DVDs) as well. I can’t say enough about him! He was a dr. until he started learning about how much "medicine" misses.

    Also, get yourself some FLAX SEEDS. Make any baked good with a handful of those in there, and let them do their magic.References :

    If you’re digestion is feeling sluggish, I’d suggest starting with the basics in the kitchen before heading to the health food store for products: eat whole foods with good sources of fiber, especially the soluble kind. It might not be the tastiest treat in the world, but try flax tea daily for a few days: Boil water until it hits a rolling boil state, then throw in th flax seed. Boil about 8 minutes or until the water has the consistency of syrup. Strain & drink hot or cold. Keeps you regular without any unpleasant side effects!

    I’d be lax if I didn’t mention the obvious: lots of water. Oftentimes we think we’re getting enough but we aren’t – so make sure you’re always keeping your system flushed this way!

    If you really want to get things moving beyond that (you want to heal/cleanse) there are many wonderful products, quite a few mentions by other answerers. In my professional experience, whole leaf organic aloe vera juice (ex. Lily of the Desert), Colosan ), and Sonne’s cleansing program ) have been quite effective at getting things moving (in order of least challenging/gentle to most challenging). All of these products are natural – but please – if you have any possible chronic gastrointestinal disorders, seek the guidance of a alternative health professional. Pushing the body to cleanse when there is a obstruction or structural issue can potentially do more harm than good.

    Best of luck to you and sending healing energies to your digestive system!References : Survivor of Leaky Gut Syndrome as well as administrator of a holistic wellness center.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
