By - Updated Oct 18, 2014

Call it what you may colon flush, bowel cleansing, or colon detox but the fact remains that people have been doing it for ages to rid their colon of the unwanted fecal matters and the associated toxins, parasites and bad bacteria. This is not all a good colon flush also rejuvenates your body as well as mind once this dangerous lot is eliminated from your system.

Role of Colon

Colon FlushColon, or your bowel, has four basic functions. Firstly, it works as a storage space for the fecal wastes that need to be thrown out of your body. Secondly, it absorbs water and mineral salts from your diet to balance the body’s fluid and electrolyte levels. Thirdly, it conditions the fecal matters for easy evacuation thoroughly lubricating them with the water that it absorbs from your food. And lastly, it flushes out the feces together with the accumulated toxins, parasites and bad bacteria through the anus.

In other words, the colon happens to be the focal point of such a waste disposal mechanism in your body. The other organs that also help in expelling the toxic matters from your body are kidney, lungs and to some extent, the skin as well.

Need for Colon Flush

If a colon malfunctions, the feces get accumulated on the walls of the colon and harden gradually making it more difficult to expel them from your body. At the same time, the deadly toxins, without being forced out, circulate to other areas of the body and start affecting other organs very adversely thereby causing serious health conditions.

Under such conditions, a good colon flush can work magically to help you combat the wayward toxins and get you back to your healthy self. The colon flush, if undertaken in the right manner, will bring you immediate relief from any related disease that you may have been afflicted with – in addition to streamlining the bowel actions.

Colon Flush Procedure

You could find a huge number of products and programs in the market and on the web that can give you an effective colon flush. There are packaged colon flush products in the form of pills, powders, kits as well as herbal extracts. There are numerous colon flush plans based on natural methods too that can be done at home. Some minimally invasive processes (involving administration of injection or insertion of tubes through the anus) are available in the form of enema, colon hydrotherapy (known also as colonics or colonic irrigation), and clyster etcetera. Different plans involve different durations varying from as little as three days to almost six months.

In fact the choices of colon flush products and plans are so vast that you may find it extremely difficult to choose the right one for yourself. It is actually up to you or your doctor to decide as to which colon flush regimen should suit you best. You may as well take help from the Internet through browsing the appropriate contents available on a host of websites.

Irrespective of the choice that you make, one natural way to get an effective colon flush at your own by yourself is to incorporate some lifestyle changes in your daily routine in the form of eating a healthy diet and drinking lot of noncarbonated water or liquid juices made from fresh fruits and vegetables. You must also shun junk foods, leave smoking and limit intake of alcohol, coffee, black tea, salt and sugar to the absolutely minimum level.
