Internal cleansing, also known as detoxification, is an essential element in obtaining and maintaining health (strengthening the immune system). Colon cleansing is especially useful in cleansing the body of unwanted toxins, colon build-up and parasites.
Internal cleansing can be accomplished through fasting, natural remedies or through medical techniques, such as colonic irrigation.
Fasting. Used by individuals throughout the world to help the body detoxify from the many toxins such as tobacco smoke and to help ease the detoxification process. Fasting should NOT be used if you’re pregnant or breast feeding and if one is on a nicotine replacement product.
Fasting can help the body reduce toxins, improve ones immune function and cell growth, improve tissue oxygenation, reduce fat stored toxins, improve physical/emotional/spiritual sensitivity and improve ones awareness of eating patterns.
Before you begin to fast, eat only raw fruits and vegetables for at least one full day (high fiber foods that will increase the frequency of bowel movements). This will prepare your system for your fast. Fast for a three-day period. Drink mineral water, herbal teas, fruit and vegetable juices. Orange juice, tomato juice and juices containing sweeteners should be avoided along with caffeine and alcohol. Vegetable juices made from green leafy vegetables are considered an excellent detoxifier.
Botanical Medicines. Natural remedies derived from plants have been used by many cultures as safe and effective colon cleansing programs.
