Internal Cleansing: Servicing Your Digestive System

Internal Cleansing: Servicing Your Digestive System

Colon cleansing serving your colon.

Is your body a temple? Do you nourish it and treat it like a sacred place or do you abuse it and treat it like a trash receptacle? If you eat like more than 65 percent of American adults then you do not treat your body the way it deserves to be treated. More than 66 percent of adults aged 20 or older are considered obese or overweight 2. We've become a country of on-the-go convenience eaters-and it shows; both in our pants size and at our doctor's offices. Obesity, diabetes and a number of other havoc-wreaking diseases are on the rise, and many can be attributed to our poor diets. As a society, we are poisoning ourselves, and not giving our bodies the tools it needs to detox.

Our body has a built-in defense mechanism that keeps us healthy: cleansing toxins.

There can be both external and internal factors which produce toxins in the body.

External Factors

No matter if you spend most of your time indoors or outdoors there is no real escape from airborne pollutants. They are always in the atmosphere, and in the air that we breathe, attacking our systems in the form of carbon monoxide, auto fuel pollutants, garbage and industrial pollution. We inhale pollutants and they pass through the lung tissue and into the bloodstream and attach themselves to the first cholesterol particle that floats by, toxifying the entire body.

Toxins also enter the body via food such as preservatives, alcohol, food additives, and pesticides.

Internal Factors

Our body generates free radicals during normal metabolic processes like digestion and respiration, adding to the existing toxic overload in the body. This is made worse by a flawed eating pattern which fails to provide the necessary antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that enable the body to detoxify effectively.

What changes can you make in your lifestyle to support detoxification?

  • Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables every day.

  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day.

  • Include fiber in the form of whole grains, and nuts.

  • Avoid excess fat.

  • Avoid coffee, alcohol and nicotine.

  • Avoid refined foods.

  • Avoid taking too many pain killers, sedatives and antibiotics.

  • Exercise daily which is beneficial in removing the toxins.

In addition, natural colon cleansers help you cleanse your body of impurities and toxins in a safe way. It also helps in absorption of vital nutrients like antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
