With all the regular coming and going, the colon is exposed to a lot. If it gets burdened in any way, then waste begins to build up along the walls of the intestines. This causes a variety of seemingly unrelated symptoms, such as:
- poor concentration,
- unstable mood,
- oily skin,
- skin rash,
- frequent sickness,
- low sex drive,
- acne and
- sour body odor.
The colon is surprisingly involved in some of the most important processes in the body. Most people know that it absorbs nutrients and then disposes of what we don’t need, but what about mental clarity, immune function and libido? This means that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of a poorly functioning colon, you may want to consider a colon cleanse.
Colon cleansing is an ancient technique. The Greeks are the first ones to develop it into an actual medical procedure, and over time it has proven to have numerous benefits. These include:
- increasing energy levels,
- heightening immunity,
- boosting brain power,
- enhancing libido,
- losing weight and
- preventing colon cancer.
One of the most popular and efficient ways of achieving this is by doing the “master cleanse.” This is a ten day fast aided by a sweet and sour drink. The ingredients are simple. All you need are these four things:
- 1 glass of filtered water, preferably by reverse osmosis,
- juice from ½ a lemon,
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and
- 1/10 a teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper.
A colon cleanse is the sure-fire way to jump start some healthier habits. A diet high in fiber acts as a sort of broom, sweeping the walls of the colon to prevent build up. Adding enough probiotics will ensure that the intestines are a suitable ecosystem for beneficial flora. This keeps digestion, and therefore all of your health, at optimal performance.
