Colon Cleansing - Articles Surfing
According to naturopathic theory, what goes on in the bowel can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body, so colon cleansing may be indicated when there is sluggish liver function as well as bowel toxicity. Symptoms may be general fatigue, headache, poor concentration, irritability, constipation, mildly aching joints and PMS. Iridology or iris diagnosis is a good diagnostic tool to show the scale of bowel toxicity. The iris of the eye is examined under high magnification, as it is believed to reflect the state of the internal body organs.
The bowel contains billions of bacteria needed to break down the remains of our food. In a healthy bowel these are mostly beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidophilus, holding the pathogenic bacteria in check. However, in an unhealthy bowel the harmful bacteria can gain the upper hand and produce harmful toxins. Hostile viruses can also take up residence in the gut, from where they may invade the body.
When performing a colon cleanse, it helps to use rectal enema once a day to remove old faecal matter. Usually old black or sticky mucous matter is released and this speeds up the process. A coffee enema (not instant) or herbal enema such Dandelion root are used to stimulate the colon these are absorbed internally by the bowel, transported via the portal blood system to h stimulate toxin release from the liver as well.
Scrupulous cleanliness must be maintained with all items sterilized by boiling before and after use.
Dandelion root enema: 50g dried root to 1.5 litres of water. Make a decoction . Leave to cool to blood heat. Fill the enema bag, lie down with the bag suspended above you, and insert nozzle. Allow it to empty slowly (it should have a valve so the flow can be adjusted), using only half the contents until you get used to the sensation
Hold for ten minutes. The operation is best performed in the bath.
Caution: Do not attempt without medical advice if you suffer from colitis. Do not perform for more than a week at a time.
A colon cleanse is ideally done in conjunction with a citrus juice fast and a herbal bowel corrective formula.

All the herbs are powdered and put into small capsules. (This formula or similar can be purchased ready-made from some supplement firms.) Take 2 three times a day with food initially, you can take up to 6 three times a day if necessary to produce a good bowel movement three times a day. Do not take enough to produce diarrhea, cut back to a comfortable level if this happens. Copious movements should be produced initially and will decrease as time goes on. It may take six to nine months to eliminate all the old matter and get the bowel working normally again
