Whether you’ve heard a little or a lot about colon cleansing, there are some facts about this natural process you should know. An article published this week in the national news would have you believe the alleged “side effects” of colon cleansing far outweigh any benefits, or that there is really no need for cleansing at all. Let’s take a look at the facts.
Our Dirty, Not-So-Little Secret
Not even the traditional medical community would disagree that our increasingly polluted environment is exposing us to more dangerous toxins than ever before. Chemical pollution is an unavoidable reality—from air pollution to the chemicals present in our homes, the goods we consume, and our water supply. Our lungs, digestive system, kidneys, liver, lymphatic and vascular systems are now working overtime to filter and eliminate contaminants from our body to keep us healthy. Even a top-notch cleaning crew needs support.
Natural + Natural = Big Benefit
This common sense formula refers to the combination of natural colon cleansing herbs with your body’s natural cleansing processes. Ancient Chinese medicine has long used herbs that support bodily functions to help restore balance and health. The medical community, however, largely ignores herbal remedies. This simply isn’t their arena and they have no power of regulation over natural supplements.
Colon Hydrotherapy and Colon Cleansing
Colon hydrotherapy is the process of safely irrigating the colon with warm water to remove fecal matter and gas. Colon hydrotherapy can be an excellent jumping off point for initiating healthy weight loss and detoxification. Seek out an experienced and trained colon hydrotherapist and rest assured that prescription devices are required in the U.S. for this procedure.
Herbal colon cleansing through the use of carefully formulated supplements helps extend the cleansing cycle, flush toxins and waste from the body, and boost energy. The ingredients in these formulas are selected for their time-honored detoxification actions, vital organ support, and their safe, established use among the public.
Do Your Herbal Homework
The more you learn about natural herbs the better informed you’ll be when considering a cleanse. The FDA requires that each herbal ingredient be listed on supplement packages in their specific amounts. A wealth of information exists online and in print detailing these ingredients’ natural sources and health benefits.
The national news article that debunks colon cleansing as “not so healthy” spotlights extreme, uninformed cases. The reality is that cleansing very rarely produces any “side effects” and has a long history of safe and effective use.
