The Colon Cleanse


There are many different approaches to nutrition, from Ayurveda to Paleolithic, and they all have their own merit. My nutrition philosophy and approach is purely from a digestive perspective. Your digestive system is responsible for eliminating waste and toxins from the body, when this does not happen properly it seriously impacts your overall wellbeing, you may notice slow weight gain, low energy level, headaches, vitamin deficiencies and other such symptoms. Regularly consuming vegetable juices is a great way to help support and maintain healthy digestion. If you’re feeling heavy and bloated or just that your body needs a bit of extra something then you may want to try my colon cleanse recipe using bentonite clay.

Bentonite clay is a natural substance derived from volcanic ash that cannot be absorbed by the body. When you consume bentonite clay with water, it absorbs toxins, parasites and mucus buildup from your intestines and expels them out of your body when you have a bowel movement. Not only is it an effective colon cleanser, bentonite clay also contains approximately 67 other trace minerals, which are extremely healing to the body’s digestive system.

Bentonite clay and psyllium are often used in traditional naturopathy to cleanse the bowel of excess toxin build up. Follow this simple regime to do your own gentle colon cleanse.

Bentonite and psyllium colon cleanse:

Add one tablespoon of bentonite liquid clay and one tablespoon of psyllium husk powder to half a glass of water first thing in the morning one hour before Breakfast.

For the drink to do its job it is important you do not eat one hour before or after as the clay is busy absorbing the toxins and nasties in your colon and the psyllium husks are scrubbing away at your intestines and need to do this uninterrupted by food.

Try one glass each morning for 5 days. Repeat once every two months for best results. While you are doing this colon cleanse it is important to increase your water intake to at least 12 glasses a day.

I recommend Yerba Prima Bentonite Liquid Clay available here. Or try your local healthfood store.

About the author
New Zealand based Nature Bee was born in 1997 when Jeff and Ben Cook joined forces. The father / son team discovered a special process developed by Canterbury University, still considered to be ground breaking today, that unlocks the nutrients of bee pollen, making it far more digestible than normal bee pollen. This proprietary process was later to be named the ‘potentiation process' and is continually used only by Nature Bee on their New Zealand bee pollen. Nature Bee is now available in almost every country in the world.

    I drop a leave a response each time I like a post on a website
    or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at.
    And after this post The Colon Cleanse | Women’s Health Talk.
    I was actually moved enough to post a thought ;-) I actually do have a few questions for
    you if it’s okay. Is it just me or do a few of these comments look
    as if they are written by brain dead individuals?

    :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I would like
    to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list all of all your social pages
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
