Hey! Our topic for today is about Colon Cleansing which involves a process called detoxification.
Detoxification means, clearing out toxins in the body. It is by neutralizing as clearing excess mucus and congestion in the colon.
Colon congestion whether acute or chronic are toxins that come from the foods we eat and drugs we use.
Toxins Are The Irritating Molecules
So, toxins are the irritating molecules that will increase in the colon when there is a poor digestion, colon dysfunction, poor disposal of the kidneys and a reduced liver function.
That is why detoxification or colon cleansing is very important.
We need to enhance the elimination of toxins in the colon and throughout our body to maintain our good health.
By minimizing our intake of some chemicals from food, drugs, refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco, it could help to little by little remove toxins in our body.
Therefore, the process of detoxification actually calls for a lifestyle change and smart selections of our intake.
Probiotic Is Needed For Colon Cleansing Or Detoxification
So, it is important to include probiotics in your diet to replenish the good bacteria in the intestines.
What is probiotic?
Probiotic is a body’s friendly bacteria that fights illness and diseases. It is an organism which contributes to the health and balance of bacteria in the intestinal tract.
A healthy intestine contains at least 85% of beneficial bacteria.
If we have a good bacteria in our intestine at least 85%, it will prevent the colonization of disease causing organisms like salmonella and E. coli.
Various colon related diseases are the results of having a lack of the required amount of friendly bacteria in the intestine.
It is sad to say, that most people do not have the required amount of friendly bacteria in their intestine.
The probiotic also prevents the overgrowth of yeast and fungus and produces substances that lower cholesterol.
So, probiotic is also excellent to enhance our immune system since it prevents unfriendly organisms from congesting the body.

The average diet today of most people includes a great deal of refined sugar, white flour, and hormone or antibiotic-filled meats. These types of foods contribute to the demise of our colons.
2. To avoid Constipation
Constipation is one of the most common bowel problems with a great number of people. It is a condition which, there is a slow transit time for a waste matter to leave the body.
The transit time means the amount of time that toxic waste matter remains in the bowel.
Most likely, a very long transit time will make the toxic waste fermented and most probably be reabsorbed by the body, that cause a fertile breeding ground for other diseases.
Usually, a disease in the colon starts with a toxic bowel. Poor bowel movements over extended periods of time can be very dangerous to your body.
