Due to many years of faulty eating—poor choices of food, poor eating habits and wrong food combination—the small intestines have become somewhat inefficient due to the foods clogging the internal wall lining. This happens to most people whose dietary is lacking in fiber (from eating flour-products, meat, processed foods, prolonged medication, alcohol, etc.)
Over the years, these “leftover (undigested) foods” begin to rot and form encrustation in the intestines. This is one of the causes of bad breath—it is the odor from this rotting encrustation. One of the functions of the small intestines is to absorb nutrients. But as the internal wall is now lined with encrustation, absorption has become inefficient. Many health problems follow when the intestines’ functions are compromised.
Chronic constipation, weak metabolism, diabetes, excessive or insufficient weight gain, kidney and liver diseases, hearing and vision problems, skin, hair and nail problems, as well as many other chronic diseases, ranging from arthritis to cancer are just some of the signs that your gastro intestines are not clean.
By eliminating the mucus, fecal deposits and parasites from the intestines you can prevent and remedy many health conditions.
It is for this reason that a gastrointestinal cleanse is recommended before doing any juice cleanse so that absorption of nutrients is increased, making healing so much easier.
The following procedure works very well when you also incorporate daily enemas to help completely remove the softened fecal matters during this detox. It is essential to have an enema especially if you have chronic constipation.
Consuming 1-3 tablespoons of flaxseed flour for three weeks can completely clean the intestines from the mucus and fecal deposits, or parasites, while fully preserving the intestinal microflora!
This method provides rapid weight normalization and fat burning. It has a positive effect on the regulation of lipid metabolism. Flaxseed flour absorbs and eliminate the toxins from the body and reduce the blood cholesterol level.
If you have any of these symptoms caused by poor gut health, this colon cleanse will be beneficial for you.
How To Do The Colon Cleanse
Instead of breakfast, consume this mixture every morning for 3 weeks:
Week 1: 1 tablespoon of flaxseed flour and 100 ml of kefir
Week 2: 2 tablespoons of flaxseed flour and 100 ml of kefir
Week 3: 3 tablespoons of flaxseed flour and 150 ml of kefir
If flaxseed flour is not available in your local store, buy some flaxseed and grind it finely. Use only organic flaxseed. Store unused flaxseed and flaxseed flour in the fridge to prevent it turning rancid.
When doing this cleanse, make sure to drink at least 2 quarts/liters of water a day. More, if you weigh more than about 120 lbs (~54kg). See this page to determine how much you need daily.
The best results are obtained if you drink 8 ounces of water with 1 teaspoon raw honey water and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar stirred in, immediately after taking the mixture every morning.
- Do not do this cleanse if you have cancer or severe health issues, are pregnant or nursing, just underwent a surgery or feeling unwell.
- If your regular diet is lacking in fiber, this cleanse may initially cause mild bloating and gas. Make sure you drink plenty of water as well to keep the bowel moving. Not drinking sufficient water may cause constipation.
- Kefir is made from a fermentation process, so it’s generally safe for individuals who may be lactose-intolerant. In case you cannot find, or prefer a non-dairy recipe, you may use this gastrointestinal cleanse which works as well.
- Some individuals may find the need to use the washroom more regularly when going on a colon cleanse. Naturally, as your body is moving out old fecal matters, it would be handy to have easy access to a washroom when doing this detox.
After doing this cleanse the first time, you will see a great improvement on your health. Absorption of nutrients from your food will greatly increase as well. Repeat this procedure once or twice a year as you deem fit.
