Is colon cleansing a good idea? Here’s what I think.

In this video, I want to give you my opinion on colon cleansing. 

There are several different types of colon cleansing: 
• Colon hydrotherapy 
This is where water goes up the rectum into the large intestine and flushes everything out. This can flush out you’re electrolytes. You may want to take electrolytes after, so you don’t become deficient. You’re also flushing out your friendly bacteria, which would need to be put back in. 

• Herbal laxatives
Creates a purging of the material out of the colon 

• Colema 
This is a combination of an enema and a colonic. The problem is that it’s very temporary. It also flushes out your electrolytes. If you’re already deficient in electrolytes, this can cause dizziness and even affect your heart. The apple juice a person is supposed to drink while doing the colema, can also keep the blood sugars up, preventing ketosis. 

Fixing your diet (doing keto) may be the best way to go. Typically, fixing the diet can fix whatever issue caused you to want to do the colon cleansing to begin with. I’m not against colon hydrotherapy as a short-term solution for constipation or other conditions. But, it should be supervised, and the electrolytes and friendly bacteria need to be put back in. 

What you could do: 
• 1. Start fasting 
• 2. Decrease inflammation 
• 3.Consume phytonutrients 
• 4. Consume fermented vegetables

    What are your thoughts on the salt water flush that you drink?

  18. chai momma

    I can’t eat meat! I get nauseous and crave vegetables and low salt and I had a kidney infection this summer. I’m eating enough protein to fill my hand and that is all I can tolerate. Kimchee and vegetables and water and tea is what I’m tolerating lately.

  19. Insane about film

    In my experience doing an enemy every few months, say 3-6 is a good way to maintain colon health over a longer period of time, essentially you wanna do at least two every year. I believe it’s important to clean the intestinal walls because they have suffered from years of abuse, consisting of, inflammation, over-saturation, the amount of toxicity in one’s system cannot be ignored. The process of elimination, detoxification and rejuvenation should be on everyone’s to do list.

    Enemas/ Hydrotherapy are the way to go. I’d stay away from herbal laxatives or colonic remedies of any kind.
    Your body is mechanical in design, therefore the engineering of one’s digestive system requires practical methods to optimise colon health. Think of it like your pipe system underneath your sink, every so often blockages occur, requiring the need to flush/clear it out allowing the passageway to discharge waste efficiently.
    Same with your body, some blockages require physical work.

    I’d also recommend fasting during this period too. Fasting within itself is an internal cleaning exercise, a natural detox, whilst colon cleansing is an external application. Combining the two may provide optimal results when this is practiced with care.
