The Benefits of Colon Cleansing

black-woman-jumping-rocks

We live in a toxic age with pesticides, genetically modified organisms, and processed ingredients in our food. This can mean that our bodies are full of toxins. Toxic build-up in the body can take a toll on overall health, and the health of the colon. If the colon doesn’t function properly, this can cause the rest of your body to operate at a lower level.

 

Even though your body does an efficient job of cleansing itself and eliminating waste, certain toxins may be difficult for the body to detox without any help. Additionally, the body may have trouble detoxing if the person continually eats toxic foods. These include processed foods, junk foods, fried foods, meats, dairy products, salty foods, and refined sugars.

 

Help your body detoxify by cleansing your colon. Eating a healthy diet and exercising are beneficial for the detoxification process, but sometimes a colon cleanse or colonic is necessary for optimal health. Below are the benefits of colon cleansing.

 

Increases Energy:

Having all those extra toxins in your body can slow you down, ultimately decreasing your energy levels and concentration. When you cleanse your colon of toxins, it allows you to better absorb vitamins & minerals, which can help increase energy levels. And if you have more energy, then you can be more active and have better mental clarity!

 

Improves Digestion:

The colon is the last part of the digestive tract, so it can impair digestion if it isn’t functioning right. Built up toxins in the colon can lead to constipation, bloating, or gas. If waste lingers in your colon, your body doesn’t properly absorb nutrients. This takes a toll on your entire body and can weaken the immune system. Cleansing the colon allows for regular bowel movements, proper nutrient absorption, and it prevents constipation, which is never fun.

 

Improves Overall Colon Health:

All the toxins that you ingest inevitably have to make their way out through the colon. If the colon isn’t cleansed, the toxins stay in the body and can be the cause of different health conditions. Many health conditions actually originate in the colon, so cleansing it can keep it and the rest of your body healthy. Plus, detoxing the colon encourages the growth of beneficial gut flora.

 

Kick-Starts Weight Loss:

When the digestive system is functioning properly, it can greatly benefit your weight loss goals. A lot of people have trouble losing weight because of built-up waste in the colon. In combination with exercise and a healthy diet, the digestive system needs to be firing on all cylinders for weight loss. Cleanse the colon to help kick-start your quest to losing weight.

 

Give your body a fresh start by cleansing your colon, and focus on eating healthy, plant-based foods to supply your body with the nutrients it needs for optimum health.

    Q: I have already purchased both FULL BODY DETOX and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. I was going to do the full body first then the colon cleanse as you suggested. I decided I should go ahead and order the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN because; well I want to get rid of as much waste/weight that I can. I feel sluggish, disgusting and toxic! Is it ok if I perform the weight loss regimen followed by the full body detox then colon cleanse? I am going away for a few weeks and this would work out much better for me as far schedule goes... Or is there a particular order I should follow to make my goal much more effective? I am not sure how strict the airlines are and I doubt I can find organic prune juice and undiluted cranberry juice where I am going....

    A:

    It's okay that you perform the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN first before the others. The key thing is that you perform all three kits.

    Q: I am a massage therapist. During a year long detox with the help of a Naturopath I lost about 40 pounds. However, I could only lose weight while fasting. Though I recognized that I was extremely toxic (very thick, dark menses every 15 days to flu-like symptoms) it seemed that fecal matter was getting "stuck" in the bend of the trans. Colon and disc. Colon. Maintaining the weight losses and good health was difficult in spite of being on a wholesome diet. Digestive enzymes seemed to adversely affect digestion since elimination was slow (once a day). Though enzymes worked well in the stomach, I would only gain weight with the use of enzymes: drinking a gallon of water a day only touched my extreme thirst. I would become lethargic and experience painful menses. Cramps, along with swelling in the ankles. Recently a massage therapist who worked with colon massage laid hands on me and told me that my trans. colon was sitting below my belly button. His massaging in the bend of the trans. colon and the disc. Colon was very uncomfortable. We agreed that massage could help with my situation since I felt great after the massage. I take flaxseed oil, prune juice, probiotics, and cranberry juice everyday and I have been seeing a colon hydro therapist for the past five weeks (once a week) with very good results. Is there a special diet that can help pull the trans colon back into position? I really want to be able to eat wholesome foods and look and feel wholesome at the same time. Thank you for your support.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.

    Q: Can you please advise if the colon cleansing will have any effects if I suffer from loose stools rather than constipation? Have had issues with loose stools since my gall bladder was removed. Some improvement when I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and began taking Synthroid, but I still have issues with very loose stools and severe gas at times. Can this colon cleansing relieve these issues? Also, I have an allergy to nuts, all kinds. Can I still take the cleansing formulas that include the shells of walnuts; I believe is what it said. I must be very careful because I have been hospitalized after ingesting a very minute amount of what I think was peanuts. Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in trying your products but at the same time I must be careful with my allergies. Also I’m allergic to eggs.

    A:

    YOU WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. BLACK WALNUT HULLS ARE SAFE FOR YOU. IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A NUT, BUT THE HULL FROM IT. ALLERGIES ARE OVERCOME WITH DEEP CLEANSING ON THE CELLULAR AND TISSUE LEVEL. REMOVAL OF THE GALLBLADDER HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT OF WHACK. HOWEVER, THE BODY DOES HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMPENSATE.

    Q: I am interested in the COLON FORMULA. I do not have a problem with constipation, but about twice a year I use an over the counter product just for cleansing purposes. I have a concern about the harshness of this product, and the walnut hulls. Are you speaking of the most hard outer shell or the inner husk?

    A:

    How do you know there is harshness with the product when you've never tried it? Try a natural thing as freely as you have tried UNNATURAL things. Be fair and unbiased against nature! Black Walnut Hull is the outer hull, pulverized of course. Think positive and you will attract positive. Think results and you will attract results!

    Q: My girlfriend is doing a 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE and the FULL BODY DETOX. The papers that came with it stated that cleansing the body will reduce excess hormones in the body. She has the birth control that is implanted in the upper arm and regularly supplies her body with extra progestin. Will doing the cleanse make this form of birth control less effective?

    A:

    Yes, the detox will make the birth control less effective as herbs are programmed to counteract toxins and poisons and the birth control is pure poison!

    Q: Do I need to take a "Probiotic Supplement" with the FULL BODY DETOX? For the bacteria that needs to stay inside your colon, because we lose good and bad bacteria from the colon from detoxing the whole body. Do good bacteria need to stay in our colon and bodies especially for women's vagina to keep it clean.

    A:

    Taking the supplement in addition to the cleanse is not necessary at all. The cleanse does not eliminate all of the good bacteria, if anything it plays a role in balancing it out. Probiotic supplements are not always the best choice.

    Q: I want to purchase the same colon and digestive herb (#6) that is in the FULL BODY DETOX. I only see the COLON FORMULA on the site. I'm assuming it's not the same since you only take three a day and not five.

    FIRST OF ALL - OUR APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAYED RESPONSE DUE TO A RADIO PROMOTION THIS WEEK THAT BACKED US UP IN INQUIRIES. WHAT YOU WANT TO ORDER IS THE COLON FORMULA". YOU JUST TAKE 3 CAPSULES A DAY INSTEAD OF 5.

    Q: I want to know can I take the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE and go to work? Will I be in the bathroom a lot with this product?

    A:

    You might want to set the time aside for this cleanse. When people are concerned about excess defecating, they usually experience it due to the Law of Attraction: what you are worried about you end up attracting to yourself. So I would suggest you find the time to do it (outside of work).

    Q: Dear Brother, I am 6 feet tall and I am on my third day of the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. I used to be 125 pounds in weight, and I have dropped to 119 pounds. I am a little concerned about the weight loss as I wasn't a healthy weight to begin with. I believe I am underweight for my height anyway. Is this amount of weight loss normal?

    Q: I ordered the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE and this is day 3. I have been experiencing a lot of cramping and runny, liquid bowel movements. I have not taken any of the formulas this morning because of the effects I've been having. It's certainly working because in the last movement I passed a lot of mucus. I would like to complete the full 10 days but if these are the side effects I can't go to work this way. I have already taken today off. Should I discontinue the program or cut back on one of the formulas? One last note, I have been sticking with raw fruits and vegetables.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST YOU CUT BACK ON THE NUMBER OF CAPSULES YOU ARE TAKING. TAKE A DAY OR TWO OFF FROM THE KIT AND RE-START BUT ONLY TAKE 2-3 CAPSULES OF EACH FORMULA WHEN YOU START BACK UP. DIARRHEA IS A SIGN OF HARD STOOLS TRAPPED IN THE COLON AND THE BODY IS ATTEMPTING TO LIQUIFY THEM. THAT'S ALL! FYI: WE GIVE PEOPLE THIS INFORMATION IN OUR â€DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING†GUIDE, "â€FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE†SECTION (FOUND UNDER "MORE SERVICES" BOX ON HOME PAGE), AND THE ARTICLES â€DIARRHEA†AND â€HEALING CRISIS†ALL AVAILABLE ON OUR SITE. REMEDIES ARE ON OUR SITE FOR PEOPLE. HANG IN THERE! DON'T QUIT BECAUSE YOU ARE HEALING! DO NOT NEGLECT GOD'S TEMPLE BECAUSE OF WORK EITHER! JUST CUT BACK ON THE DOSAGE!
