At Home Colon Cleanse – Basic Lifestyle Changes

By - Updated Oct 20, 2014

The need to cleanse or detoxify the body’s digestive system from time to time is something that more and more people are becoming aware of. Most at home colon cleanse diets consist of a combination of fasting, dietary changes, and the use of mild laxative agents including herbal remedies in order to best flush the system. There are many benefits to undertaking an at home colon cleanse, including the fact that it is economical and does not take any extra time out of one’s busy schedule.

At Home Colon CleanseSome of the top types of at home colon cleanse that a beginner could think about taking part in include the “master cleanse” diet, also known as a lemonade diet. This involves a process made up of several portions designed to flush the system, loosen up stubborn fecal matter that may be clinging to the colon walls, and leave the body cleansed and refreshed. While some may follow this at home colon cleanse formula for up to two weeks, even a brief period of two days can have a significant impact on the body’s digestive system. This leads to weight loss, increased energy levels, and an overall feeling of cleanliness, according to testimonials.

The basic practice of this type of at home colon cleanse is to eliminate solid food from the diet, and instead to subsist for a few days or as long as is needed on the formula that is prescribed. This consists of a mixture of lemon juice, maple syrup, water, and cayenne pepper. The lemon and cayenne pepper are excellent for helping detoxify the body, while the maple syrup is meant to provide enough dietary sugar to allow the body to continue to function properly without solid food or other nutrients during the fast. As with any other type of major dietary change, it’s best to consult with your health care provider before undertaking this type of at home colon cleanse, particularly for more than a few days.

There are other, less severe methods of following an at home colon cleanse. Simply eliminating processed food, alcohol, and caffeine from the diet and focusing instead on the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables can make a world of difference in colon health overall. This is a quite economical method of undertaking an at home colon cleanse. The downside to this may be that it requires taking the time and effort to plan out meals, but in the long run a trial period of following this type of diet may pay off in that it allows you to make lifestyle changes that lead to an overall cleaner and more efficient colon.
