Poor digestion causes various other issues, like constipation, bloating, and stomach cramps.
At times, the aggravated function of the digestive system is manifested by common headaches and fatigue, but we are often unaware of it and believe that the cause is either cold, the weather, poor night’s sleep, and so on.
Due to this, we often fail to address the proper issues, in this case, the impacted bowel, and try to treat the issue by healing something else, like the pain in the head.
The following signs indicate that you need to do a colon cleanse and eliminate the waste and toxins accumulated in the body:
- Low energy
- Change in appetite
- Allergic reactions
- Chronic fatigue
- ‘Brain fog’
The waste buildup causes mucus and bacteria to ferment in the colon, and release toxins into the bloodstream. Also, irregular bowel movements may cause problems with the absorption of nutrients.
When you plan to perform this colon cleansing treatment, you should stay at home and take some time to relax. The colon cleanse includes the consumption of a juice made of ginger, apples, and lemons.
The cleansing juice should be consumed three times daily, once in the morning, as soon as you wake up, on an empty stomach, again before a light lunch, and the third glass should be drunk in the midafternoon.
During the day, you also need to drink 6-8 glasses of room-temperature water. Yet, you should slow down with the consumption of water after 5 pm in order to prevent any midnight bathroom excursions.
This is how to prepare the juice:
- 1 teaspoon ginger juice – it will stimulate the colon to remove toxins and also reduces bloating
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice – it boosts digestion and acts as a potent antioxidant for detoxification of the body
- 1/2 cup warm purified water
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt – triggers the removal of waste
Pour the water into a glass and add the sea salt. Stir well, and then add the two different juices to the glass.
For best effects, experts recommend that you consume this colon cleansing mixture for a day, or maximum a week.
The digestive system plays an extremely important role in the functioning of the entire body, so its improvement will provide numerous benefits, including:
- Improved sleep
- Balanced hormones
- A healthy appetite
- Removal of the excess fatty acids from the body
- Reduced anxiety and fatigue
You should consult your doctor before performing this cleansing treatment in the case of pregnancy, allergies, any diseases, or if you are taking some medications.
