Because there is a rise in our intake of processed foods, chemicals and pollution, our bodies have become storage for toxins. This buildup can cause weight gain, fatigue, and headaches.
Colon cleansing is being used today to help detoxify the whole body.
Advocates for this method of detoxification say that it boosts the immune system and gets rid of harmful waste and bacteria that is responsible for the weight gain and creates the odds for colon cancer.
Some people choose to follow a more natural approach to colon cleansing by using fiber rich foods. Foods high in dietary fiber naturally expel toxins from the body without the use of medications or visits to the doctor.
On the other hand, proponents for the colon irrigation, as prescribed by the doctor, say that this is the only way that fully expels all the harmful toxins for a full body detox.
Both ways do help to shed the buildup in the body as well as improving the efficiency of other body functions, making it run better. This can result in more energy and weight loss.
You must keep in mind; however, that colon cleansing can cause severe dehydration, so drink plenty of water. Another side effect is the loss of the good bacteria in your body, these good bacteria help fight off diseases.
There are several products that can return the natural bacteria in your body but remember to discuss with your doctor before participating in such a diet program.
