Whenever a new client comes to me with a chronic problem, one of the first things I may recommend after a multimodal diagnosis is a colon cleanse. This is done in conjunction with a transitional diet if necessary. Most of the top Holistic Health consultants worldwide are in agreement with this practice.
Why a colon cleanse?
A colon cleanse, is a process said to remove toxins and waste from the colon. Many say it can improve overall health by removing accumulated waste, promoting regular bowel movements, and reducing the risk of colon cancer.
Allopathic medical professionals generally do not recommend colon cleansing as a routine procedure. The colon is designed to remove waste and toxins from the body through the process of elimination
If you are experiencing symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, or abdominal pain, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.
It’s important to note that to maintain a healthy gut and bowel function, a balanced diet, high in fiber and hydration is recommended. Regular exercise and staying active, along with limiting processed food, sugar and alcohol consumption would help a lot.
A variety of supplements are sometimes used in colon cleanses, including herbal supplements and laxatives. Some of the most common supplements used in colon cleanses include:
- Psyllium husk: This is a type of fiber that is often used as a bulk-forming laxative. It is said to help increase the bulk of stools and promote regular bowel movements.
- Bentonite clay: This is a type of clay that is said to absorb toxins and waste in the colon.
- Cascara sagrada: This is a type of herbal laxative that is made from the bark of the cascara sagrada tree. It is said to stimulate the muscles of the colon and promote bowel movements.
- Senna: This is a type of plant that is often used as a laxative. It is said to stimulate the muscles of the colon and promote bowel movements.
- Probiotics: These are live microorganisms that are said to help balance the gut microbiome, which can help to support overall gut health.
- Enemas: They are used to introduce liquids into the rectum and colon for the purposes of cleaning or medical treatment.
Note that using any of these supplements can carry potential side effects, particularly when used in high amounts or for extended periods of time.
It’s best to talk to a healthcare professional before taking any supplements, even if they are sold over the counter. They can help to advise you on the appropriate use and dosage, as well as any potential interactions with other medications you may be taking.
