Natural Colon Cleanse Remedies

Colon or Bowel Cleansing is controversial as some people advocate supporting the liver to detoxify the body and the colon will take care of itself.

IMPORTANT – Really Good digestion promotes a clean colon. When the system is shut down, there is constipation and a sense of sluggishness, especially in those who are heavy or hot. Then, a cleanse may be in order.

While laxatives can provide a temporary help for those who are traveling or have an interrupted schedule, chronic constipation should be addressed by looking at a cause. Causes can be physical inactivity, an irregular schedule, stress, liver problems, lack of adequate fiber, fruits and vegetables, and low water intake.

What you can do naturally

  • Drink 4 – 6 glasses of water a day
  • Take a heaping tablespoon of Psyllium husk fiber in 12 oz. of water twice a day
  • Walk 10 minutes at least twice a day
  • Have more relaxation and fun in your life!

Some essential nutritional supplements for moving and cleansing the colon: Magnesium malate can be very helpful as it pulls water into the bowel and physically moves food through. Psyllium husk fiber can also act as a cleanser. A lack of probiotics or friendly bacteria may also contribute to a healthier colon. You may want to try Nature’s Way Reuteri which puts the right bacterial flora back into your intestines.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Natural Remedies

Irritable bowel is a disorder which causes discomfort and distress to the intestines. Symptoms irritable bowel symptomsare characterized most commonly by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea. Some may have constipation while others may have diarrhea, or a combination of both in alternation. Other symptoms include bloating and gas, mucus in the stool, and urging after having a bowel movement.

As many as 20 percent of the adults have symptoms of IBS, making it one of the most common disorders diagnosed by doctors. It occurs more often in women than in men, and it begins before the age of 35 in about 50 percent of people.

IBS, for most people, can come from poor diet containing fast foods, dairy, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and soda. These things also cause the death of the friendly bacteria in the intestines. Other causes may be due to dietary allergies, or food sensitivities. Stress may play a part in the cause.

Modern medicine treats IBS with diet changes, fiber supplements, anti-diarrheal medications, anticholinergic medications (nervous system), anti-depression medications, and counseling. Medication specific to IBS is Alosetron (Lotronex) which is supposed to relax the colon – only approved for women. These medications only treat the symptoms and create dependency.

To heal the body the natural way, reduce stress, improve the diet and women should balance their hormones. Using the herb Vitex (3 capsules a day) may eliminate other hormonal symptoms as well as some of the IBS symptoms.
