According to some doctors, there is probably 20-30 pounds of waste in all of our colons and most people don’t believe this is true. However, the colon is a pretty large organ which processes tons of food and drinks during our lifetime. All these products leave residue behind, which, if left uncleaned, can easily add up. Besides sounding gross, the waste is also problematic from another point of view – it can impair your digestion and metabolism and needs to be cleaned as soon as possible.
This is why we all need to flush our colon every once in a while. Leaving the accumulation of residue within can have negative effects on our health and the colon toxicity can serious harm our organs and health. In fact, doctors have associated colon toxicity to a variety of serious health problems, which means that you need to flush your colon as soon as possible.
One of the main causes of a toxic colon and the accumulation of residue within it is the poor diet we all eat nowadays. The food we eat is full of chemicals and other contaminants that can leave a lot of waste behind in the colon and cause pounds of waste to accumulate in it.
In the past, people cleaned their colon with enemas, but they’re not the perfect solution considering the fact they clean only the starting part of the colon. However, there are many natural remedies which can clean the organ and we have the best one for you. Before presenting the recipe, let’s take a look at some of the symptoms of a toxic colon.
Main symptoms of colon toxicity
The symptoms you might experience in case of accumulated waste in the colon are constipation, stomachache, diarrhea, indigestion, weakened immune system, excess gasses and bloating. You may also experience muscle pain, bladder problems, vaginal infections, rashes, mood swings, brain fog, fatigue, memory loss, anxiety and depression.
The maple syrup colon cleanse we have for you today is pretty effective and will unclog your colon pretty fast. It is made of natural ingredients only and won’t harm your health like other treatments. Here’s how to prepare it:
- ½ a teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 12 oz. filtered water
- 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
Mix the ingredients in a glass, then drink the remedy 4 times per day in the morning before breakfast. The process lasts for 2 weeks. After this period, you will feel much better and lighter due to the removal of all the waste from your colon. In order to keep it clean and properly functioning, you need to eat a low-carb diet and start being more physically active.
When we say physically active, we suggest light exercise (walking, jogging), as the foods you’ll eat and the remedy itself are low on calories, so you won’t have much energy. After 2 weeks, slowly reintroduce fat, carbs and protein into your diet and you should be fine in a couple of days.
