How would you like to poop and lose 20 pounds? You might think it’s funny but that’s how much toxic waste the average American has sitting in their colon.
It’s more than just added weight, though. That toxic sludge prevents the colon from doing what it’s supposed to do – absorb nutrients and expel waste. It also negatively impacts gut bacteria, making it difficult to lose weight.
So what’s the solution to this whole colon fiasco? There are several, and I’m about to show you 8!
8 Natural Remedies To Cleanse Your Colon
#1 – Drink Lots of Water
This right here is a big one. As much as 75% of all Americans suffer from dehydration, a major cause of colon blockage. Your colon needs water to keep waste flowing – and it needs a lot more than you might think.
You should be drinking no less than 2 liters of water each day. Some health experts actually recommend that you exceed that number and push past 3 liters daily. This will make that toxic sludge a lot easier to push out.
#2 – Make A Prune Juice Cleanse
Prune juice contains an epic amount of fiber. This makes it great for clearing colon blockage. How much prune juice you should drink depends on just how backed up you are. Generally, you’ll want to drink 8 ounces before breakfast and another 8 ounces after dinner.
Once you’ve noticed that your bowel movements are becoming more frequent, you can begin to wean yourself off drinking so much prune juice. This is to prevent your colon from becoming dependent on it. Look at it as a jump start.
#3 – Eat Lots Of Fiber
Prunes are just one good source of fiber. Here are a few more to try:AvocadosBerriesCoconutFigsOkraBrussels sprouts
