How to Clean the Colon Naturally. In order to cleanse our colon, it is essential
that, together with fiber consumption, we increase the consumption of water to facilitate
the elimination of waste. The colon, also called the large intestine,
is located at the end of the digestive system . It fulfills, among others, the function
of stool evacuation but also is related to our immune system. To avoid diseases of the colon (colorectal
cancer, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, irritable colon …) and many others that can derive
from them we present the most suitable foods to make you healthy. Foods rich in fiber.
If we think of healthy food to the intestine what first comes to mind is fiber . But it
is not only important to avoid refined ones. We should also choose food that contains it
naturally , not that it is added artificially. Today, for example, wholemeal bread is not
usually made with wholemeal flour, but is made with white flour and then bran is added.
That is why we will always try to choose foods with fiber and the least processed possible. We found fiber in foods of plant origin. Fresh and dried fruits.
Fruits and vegetables. Vegetables,
Nuts. Wholegrain cereal: bread, grain (rice, millet
, quinoa, wheat) and pasta. Water.
When we increase the consumption of fiber in our diet it is important to also increase
the consumption of water between meals, since if in the first days we can notice a greater
constipation due to lack of liquid. We drink at least 6 or 10 glasses daily. The
amount of water we need will depend on our age, whether we make physical efforts and
the outside temperature. Some diseases of the kidneys or congestive heart failure may
also influence. In this case we recommend to consult with the doctor. Calcium.
Calcium has been shown in some studies to reduce the risk of colon and rectal cancer.
We will also look for foods that contain it naturally, for a better assimilation, and
avoid all those who present themselves as “enriched in calcium . ” We will find it in
the following foods. Sesame (in seeds, in tahín, in oil, in gomasio
…) Green leaf (spinach, chard, broccoli …)
Almonds (in grain, in drink), Vitamin D.
Whenever we talk about calcium we will also refer to vitamin D, since vitamin D is essential
to assimilate it well. In addition, it is also a way to prevent colon and rectal cancer. There are also some foods that contain it. Salmon,
Egg. If we live in a little sunny area throughout
the year we can consider taking it as a supplement to seasons. Folic acid. Folic acid or vitamin B9 helps the body to
create new cells and, in addition to many other properties and being essential during
pregnancy, also reduces the risk of colon cancer. We find it in. Green leaves (chard, broccoli, spinach).
Asparagus. Green peas,
Papaya. Magnesium. This mineral is used to treat digestive problems
associated with intestinal transit, such as the irritable bowel, and also helps reduce
the risk of cancer. We will take foods rich in magnesium daily: Cocoa,
Pumpkin seeds. Flax Seeds,
Sunflower seeds. Almonds,
Cashew nuts. Nuts of Brazil,
White beans. Green peas,
Green leaf. We can also take a supplement of magnesium
chloride or magnesium citrate for two or three months. Beware of red and processed meat. For our intestinal health we must take into
account some foods that are not beneficial, as they generate putrefacciones that are deposited
in the intestine and in the long term we can intoxicate. This is the case of red and processed
meats. We will choose best for organic poultry, fish, eggs, legumes , etc. These foods will
provide the protein and energy needed for our body. Beware of dairy products. If we suffer from irritable bowel, we must
avoid, in addition to red meat, milk and its derivatives. We can do the test for a month
and then reintroduce them into our diet. If we do not tolerate them well, our gut will
react immediately. We can also drink vegetable drinks during
this time. The kuzu, intestinal regulator. Kuzu or kudzu is a powdered root that has
wonderful regenerative and regulatory properties for our colon. How do we take it? Dilute a spoonful of ground kuzu in a glass
of cold water, avoiding using a metal spoon (we will choose one of wood or porcelain).
Then we put it in a saucepan to boil, but without stirring at any time. After about
two minutes, over low heat, we will see that the texture and color change, that the liquid
becomes transparent and thick. At this point we put out the fire, let it cool, and then
we take it separate from the meals. It can be taken once or twice a day until you notice
