5 Home Remedies For Natural Colon Cleansing

5 home remedies for natural colon cleansing. The human colon is an important part of the body. Extensive research has shown that the health of your colon can have a direct impact on your body’s overall metabolism. With that said, an unhealthy colon can lead to serious conditions such as colon cancer. According to the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosis.
1) Eat More Fiber

We’ve all heard before that fiber makes you poop and if you haven’t, well, you just heard it here. It’s true, fiber helps move waste along your digestive tract, which is great for keeping you regular and keeping your colon healthy. So the question on everyone’s mind is– how much of it should I eat if I wanna keep my colon cleansed? How much should I consume to make my digestion go smoother? Well, GAIAM.COM has the answer: 25-35 grams daily. And don’t worry, your diet won’t be restricted, because there are a lot of foods that are really high in fiber, such as raspberries, bananas, prunes, peas, broccoli, beans, celery, and whole-wheat pasta. So get out there and start pooping people! Or at least start eating more fiber. 

2) Vitamin D

Apparently, there’s nothing better than getting some sunshine for the place where the sun don’t shine (kind of an odd idiom if that’s the case, but what the heck). Especially when you’re trying to prevent colon cancer and attempting to keep up your colon’s health, sunshine can be very advantageous. If you don’t believe us, believe THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL NUTRITION says that “a steady intake of Vitamin D is advantageous when trying to prevent colon cancer and maintain a healthy colon”. They also say that 15 minutes in the sun is sufficient, but if you’re having trouble getting that then foods like bread, fatty fish, milk, and cereal are chalked full of Vitamin D. If that doesn’t work, consider taking a supplement. We wonder if they still make those in Flintstones shapes…

3) Don't Hold It In. 

We want to go on record saying: if you have to go poop, go poop. We know there are some instances where this is impossible (while driving, while playing sports, working landscaping, at a new boyfriend's parent's house) but we cannot stress the importance of going when you need to go. Held in fecal matter can cause all sorts of issues for your body, like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) or diverticulosis. This is because poop left in your colon releases toxins into your body, which are, as the name implies, pretty toxic. Don't worry, we have a tip for hiding poop smell– put a bunch of soap in the sink and run some water over it. Hopefully, the smell of soap will cover the smell of... well, waste. 

4) Colonoscopies. 

Alright, we know there's nothing cool about getting a colonoscopy. However, if you're looking for early detection of colon cancer, then a colonoscopy is probably your best bet. Especially if you're over 50, then the procedure is essential to keeping your colon healthy. Not only if you're over 50, but if you experience constant diarrhea or constipation, you should definitely try to get some help from your doctor. Those two afflictions can be signs of colon and intestinal problems. So even though it sucks, just get it. If you do this and the other things on this list, then your colon will thank you. During the colonoscopy it probably won't be too pleased but when you're given that clean bill of health you and your colon can rest easy.
