Your digestive system is smart and self-sustained. It is equipped to eliminate daily the waste that remains in your colon after the digestion and absorption of nutrients from foods and drinks.
However, due to the many toxic additives in foods, overprocessed and overcooked meals, unhealthy fats, pollution and chaotic lifestyle, with less to none physical exercising, sleepless nights and random meals, our digestion suffers. There is a greater toxic load in our bodies than the digestive, detoxifying, and excretory systems can manage daily.
A thick buildup of wastes and remaining food lines the intestines, leading to constipation, toxicity, slow metabolism, fatigue, cognitive problems, cardiovascular problems, impacting negatively our entire body and overall health.
Thankfully, there are ancient, safe and proved methods to cleanse your colon and relieve it from the toxic waste. Ancient Greece, Egypt, Asia have popular colon cleansing practiced that have been passed on to our days. Water and salt, teas or vegetable broth, herbal supplements with water have been used for thousands of years in the Oriental and Occidental traditional medicine to clean the colon.
The Poison in Your Colon
The colon is the last part of the digestive system. The leftovers remaining after the food has been digested and the nutrients absorbed are moved towards the end of the intestine, “the terminal”.
The main function of the colon is to absorb important nutrients from the food ball into the body and eliminate the toxic waste (stool). A healthy person will have at least 1 easy bowel movement per day, 2-3 is even better. A healthy eliminated stool should not have a bad odor.
In natural health conditions, an intestinal bowel movement will eliminate the wastes. You feel relieved, weightless, happy, and healthy.
But when your health is compromised and your intestines, liver, lymph, and immune system are not functioning well, your colon is unable to get rid of the toxic waste. What happens?
The toxic fecal matter gets stuck on the colon walls. Over time, the stagnant fecal matter becomes incrusted into the colon walls, building up more and more, and finally blocking the passage. The new fecal matter formed (as we keep eating daily) will be stuck until your intestines will become filled with fecal matter and toxic waste. That’s constipation.
The problem is not only this, as the colon walls are very permeable (remember that the main function of the intestines is to absorb the nutrients?) and so the toxins will permeate and will go into the body, blood stream circulation, in all organs.
When the fecal matter keeps building up for weeks, months and even years, it ferments, putrefies, and poisons the whole body, all the systems, all the organs.

What’s In Your Colon?
Your intestines naturally have a colony of billions of healthy friendly bacteria that help with:
- nutrients absorption
- maintaining pH balance
- regulating the hunger sensation
- keeping the bad-friendly bacteria in balance
The colon is very important, not only for eliminating waste but for keeping healthy a balance within your body. That is why it is so important to take care of it, keep it healthy and well functioning. Help your colon, and it will help you back.
Our modern unhealthy and poor diet, lacks water, fibers, fresh vegetables and fruits, juices, and healthy oils. Dryness and lack of fibers lead to constipation. And with that, come an array of other health problems.
How to Cleanse Your Colon
Colon Cleanses, such as our 15 Days Quick Colon Cleanse and Detox, are powdered herbal ingredients such as Psyllium Husk, Cascara Sagrada, Senna Leaf, Flaxseed, Aloe Vera, Lactobacillus Acidophilus that help your intestines. How?
Take this dietary supplement with water. This is a very important step in the cleansing process. The water will make the Psyllium swell up like a ball and, along with the other herbal fibers in the supplement, will move down your intestines, pushing the stagnating food in your colon out, detaching the dry sticky food from the colon walls and taking it away with it, cleaning and cleansing your intestines all the way.
Senna is a mild herbal laxative, while Flaxseed lubricates the intestines and Aloe Vera regenerates the intestines walls.
This is a safe, effective, natural way of cleansing your colon and stimulating your bowel movement without any side-effect whatsoever, in the intimacy of your home, without the hustle of enemas or colon irrigations.
It is recommended to do such a colon cleanse 4 times a year, at the change of seasons. Especially beneficial for your health are the colon cleanses done in the spring and autumn.
