Homemade Colon Cleanse
updated 7 days ago

So, you're ready to clean your colon but aren't sure how to get it done. Well, there are many colon cleansing options out there, including a wide variety of homemade colon cleansing concoctions. Here is a look at a few of the more popular of these at home varieties.

The Homemade Colon Cleanse Enema
One form of homemade colon cleanse is the good ol' enema. While different types of enemas are available for purchase, some people just prefer making their own from various essential oils and filtered water. This method involves squirting the water and oils into the colon until it gets full. Then, naturally, the water is expelled. Of course, the process is kinda' embarrassing and not very enjoyable. And you'd better be pretty close to a toilet while you do it!

Fans of the homemade colon cleanse enema actually use more water than commercially available enemas. Most homemade enemas call for using one to three quarts of water. Some people add fennel, frankincense, or peppermint to the water in the enema bag or even combine all three of these essential oils. Each of these oils helps to stimulate the immune function and peristalsis (the natural eliminatory contractions) and you only need to add one to three drops to the water.

While a homemade enema can definitely clean out your colon, it can be quite messy and difficult to implement. It involves lying down in a comfortable area close to the toilet so you can make it there in time. In addition, you need to make sure the water temperature is between 98 and 103 degrees Fahrenheit and the enema bag is hanging two feet above your body for gravity to pull the mixture in. To accomplish the latter, those who choose to give themselves a homemade enema often use a medical IV stand to help secure the bag.

If you are looking for a homemade colon cleanse procedure that will not make you uncomfortable and is not so messy, an enema probably is not the method you want !

Cleanse Your Colon through Fasting
OK, so this isn't actually a concoction and there is no recipe involved, but many people choose fasting as a means for cleansing their colons at home. The idea behind fasting is that denying your body food will essentially force it to digest the impure materials found within your colon. In addition, fasting is supposed to help provide your colon with rest. But, who wants to force their body to digest left over waste materials? If your body didn't want these materials in the first place, why would you want to make it digest them now? Instead, it would probably be better to find a way to completely expel this waste material from your colon rather than absorb it back into your body.

Eat Your Way To A Clean Colon
Increasing the amount of fiber in your diet is a surefire way to help keep your bowel movements regular. Armed with this knowledge, many homemade colon cleanse techniques recommend just adding more fiber to your diet within a short period of time. One of the most popular choices for getting things moving again is eating more prunes – either the fruit or the juice. Prunes can be a great way to loosen up your stool, though it is not effective in removing waste already embedded in the colon. Another drawback, unless you just love prunes, is that you have to consume quite a large amount to notice an effect.

Taking Advantage of Probiotics for Colon Cleansing
Probiotics are organisms helping your colon maintain its proper balance. They do this by preventing the growth of harmful organisms and bacteria found within your digestive system. Probiotics also give a boost to your immune system and help your body more effectively make the different vitamins it needs. Foods such as garlic, bananas, and onions contain probiotics. Unfortunately, no one knows how much of these individual foods you need to eat in order to get a good cleansing effect – and, you probably don't want to whip up a garlic, banana, and onion shake any time soon!

Completing a Homemade Colon Cleanse with Psyllium
Psyllium fiber is another popular homemade colon cleanse option. This is because the fiber from the husks of pysllium seeds is soluble (dissolvable in water) and belongs to a class of fiber referred to as mucilages. This type of fiber retains water and also binds with bile acids found in the intestines. In this way, Psyllium helps the colon get rid of stored waste . Psyllium is usually found in soups and salad dressings because of its thickening property.

So What's the Best Homemade Colon Cleanse Method?
Although people use a number of homemade colon cleanse methods to try to keep their colons healthy, there really are no completely reliable homemade remedies for this important component of your health care routine. You want to cleanse your colon in a way that works, and without all the side effects, drawbacks, or mess right? It really is best to use a specialized product then, such as Oxy-Powder® to make a concentrated effort on cleaning your colon in a simple, pain-free, and effective way.
