More and more people nowadays are suffering from ailments related to the digestive system and they’re not even aware of it. The colon is the body’s main elimination organ which has an incredibly important role in our system. It removes waste from our body, absorbs water and nutrients from the food we eat and flushes away chemicals and toxins, so any kind of interference with its function can significantly harm your health.
Unfortunately, due to the busy lifestyle we lead and the unhealthy food we eat every day, the colon is constantly attacked. Due to these and other factors, waste can get stuck in the colon, resulting in a variety of problems with unforeseen consequences. All the fecal matter stuck in your colon can be the reason for your constipation or indigestion and if left untreated, it can poison your whole body! This is why it’s important to clean the colon regularly so it can do its job better.
There are many colon detox cleanses you can try, but we suggest trying the natural recipe you can see below. It contains ingredients you probably have in your kitchen and is quite easy to prepare and consume. All you need are lemons, ginger, apples and sea salt to flush away all the waste from your colon and regain your health.
According to studies, both apples and ginger are full of fiber, the most important nutrient for our digestion. Ginger has been used as a natural remedy for bloating, indigestion and other digestive problems in the past, so including it in your diet should be your priority. Lemons are full of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant which can also detoxify your body. Finally, the sea salt will also improve your digestion and has the ability to bind to toxins and chemicals and help flush them away from the body.
Here’s how to prepare the cleanse:
- ½ a cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon ginger juice
- ½ a cup sea salt
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- ½ a cup apple juice
Warm up the water in a pan without letting it boil, then reduce the heat to low and add the sea salt first. Stir well, then add the other ingredients, take the drink off the heat and leave it to cool down slightly. Drink it while still warm.
Experts recommend drinking the remedy 3 times per day – a glass in the morning, before lunch and at 6 or 7 PM. At the same time, you need to drink 2-3 l. of water during the day to boost the detox process. Drink most of the water from the morning till the middle of the day in order to prevent waking up with an urge to pee overnight.
This simple detox method is safe for all age groups and there are no side-effects other than going to the bathroom a bit more often. However, if you’re on some kind of medications, you’re suffering from allergies or you’re pregnant, we suggest consulting with a doctor first. Due to the natural sugar found in apples, the drink is also not recommended for diabetics.
The process can last from a day to a week – it depends on you. Once you’re done, it will completely clean your colon and give your metabolism a boost, which will eventually lead to weight loss if you eat well and exercise regularly.
