Bowel Cleanse | Organic Bowel Cleanse

A bowel cleanse should not be a harsh, invasive, or dehydrating process if you choose to cleanse toxins and rebalance digestive health this way. There is some confusion regarding internal bowel cleansing (using a supplement) and colon hydrotherapy (using colon irrigation and an external water source). Bowel cleansing with a supplement works internally without any external stimulation. It should be gentle, work deeply within the colon to naturally draw out toxins, and be taken over about a month period for the best results.

Most important, a quality bowel cleanse should not contain harsh laxative ingredients that can cramp the bowel or cause bloating and gas. These are signs that the body is under stress, a state that is counterproductive to cleansing.

The Power of Triple Fiber for Cleansing

We are all familiar with the reputation fiber has for promoting regularity in people with sluggish bowel movements. Less than 1-2 bowel movements a day points to a waste and toxin build-up in the colon, a condition that many of us experience without realizing its long-term health effects.

When waste builds up along the intestinal walls:

  • Digestive toxin production and toxin retention increases
  • Nutrient absorption is reduced
  • Energy levels dip significantly—you will feel more run down than if bowels were moving out of the colon at a healthy pace
  • The colon begins a toxin cycle that continues until waste is cleansed

Waste build-up in the colon is often due to a lack of fiber in the diet (you should be consuming 30-35g of fiber a day). In its most basic function, fiber stimulates peristalsis, the wave-like motion that moves material through the intestines and out for healthy toxin/waste elimination.

An optimum fiber balance for cleansing is 25% soluble fiber and 75% insoluble fiber. Make sure your cleanse contains both types of fiber to maximize the benefits of this colon-healthy nutrient.

  • Soluble fiber from sources such as acacia and oat bran fibers is like the absorbent side of a sponge. Soluble fiber soaks up toxins as it passes through the digestive tract and moves them out via bowel movements. ǂ
  • Insoluble fiber from flax seed and raw fruits and veggies can be compared to the sponge’s scrubbing side. This fiber type gently “scrubs” built-up waste and toxic material from the intestinal walls. ǂ

Choose an organic-ingredient bowel cleanse with a triple fiber mixture of flax seed (insoluble) plus acacia and oat bran (soluble) fibers to get the most out of your fiber component without the concern of additional pesticides from non-organic ingredients.

More Bowel Cleanse Support

Certain laxative ingredients such as senna, cascara sagrada, and psyllium are not well tolerated and can cause discomfort, cramping, and gas. These ingredients are irritating to the colon rather than naturally supportive of its functions.

  • Rhubarb root has a mild laxative effect on the digestive system. Rhubarb stimulates digestive movement in a balanced and moderate way over time rather than causing a harsh flushing action. ǂ
  • Magnesium is a mineral that has a hydrating effect in the bowels. Stuck, slow-moving bowel movements are not hydrated and become difficult to pass. Magnesium works by drawing water from the colon wall and into the colon, hydrating waste matter there so it can be more easily passed. ǂ

A balanced cleansing supplement should contain more ingredients than just a few. In addition to organic fiber types, rhubarb, and magnesium, your supplement should nourish and soothe the bowels as it cleanses for your comfort and to minimize digestive distress.

  • Soothing. Spearmint, peppermint, and cumin help soothe gas and a spastic digestive tract. ǂ Marshmallow root and slippery elm bark work by supporting the important mucosal lining of the intestines and helping to soothe intestinal inflammation. ǂ Inflammation along the intestinal walls is common when bowels become sluggish. A well-lubricated, non-inflamed bowel is better able to flush and expel toxins.
  • Gently stimulating. Ginger root, fennel seed, coriander, and papaya leaf all naturally stimulate digestive juices and digestive motility, the movement of waste through the digestive system. ǂ These botanicals do not cause cramping or gas and are recommended for extended, deep colon cleansing.

Again, organic ingredients may be preferred over non-organic ingredients when you are completing a cleanse to minimize the potential for added toxins. An ideal cleansing diet includes leans meats, non-starchy vegetables, whole fruits, soaked nuts and seeds, plenty of water, a limited amount of grains, and no sugars/sugar substitutes/processed foods.

Why cleanse?
There are several reasons for choosing a one-month deep bowel cleanse over a harsh laxative product:

  • This type of cleanse helps reset the colon so that it is eliminating properly. It is recommended you take this cleansing step first before moving on to other cleanses and dietary/lifestyle changes. A cleansed colon is better able to eliminate stored bodily toxins as they are released through dietary changes and further cleansing.
  • A cleanse is designed to do just that—clean out unwanted toxins. A laxative is intended to primarily purge the colon and bowels rather than address toxin build-up and dehydrated stool.
  • A gentle, thorough cleanse is generally well tolerated by different body types. Any side effects of your cleanse are a result of positive toxin release and not due to stress on an already aggravated digestive system.
