					Colon Cleansing The Traditional Way Colon cleansing involves a process called detoxification. Detoxification is geared toward clearing out toxins in the body by means of neutralizing or transforming them, as well as clearing excess mucus and congestion in the colon. Most of the toxins that are congesting the colon come from the food we eat, drugs we use, or environmental exposure both acute and chronic. Fats (especially oxidized fats) and cholesterol, free radicals as well as other irritating molecules act as toxins. Likewise, poor digestion, colon sluggishness and dysfunction, reduced liver function and poor waste disposal by the kidneys, respiratory tract and skin all contribute to increased toxins in the colon. Detoxification is very important for healthy living as well as enhancing the elimination of toxins in the colon and throughout the body. Minimized intake of some chemicals from food and other sources like refined sugar, caffeine, alcohol and tobacco, as well as many drugs helps to remove toxins in the body. The process of detoxification actually calls for a lifestyle change and smart selections of food. For detoxifying or cleansing the colon, it is also important to include probiotics in your diet in order to replenish the good bacteria in the intestines. A probiotic is an organism which contributes to the health and balance of bacteria in the intestinal tract. It's also commonly referred to as the body's friendly bacteria and helps in fighting illness and diseases. Fiber The traditional methods have included increasing the fiber in the diet while taking laxative herbs, such as Cascara Sagrada or Senna. These laxatives are harsh to the body and can create a dependency not unlike an addiction. Fiber for constipation usually is made up of psyllium seed husks. This natural plant derivative absorbs water in the bowel and becomes mucilaginous. This creates a bulk that is helpful for removing matter from the colon, but it is not a complete cleanse. Oxygen-based A lesser known method, oxygen based colon cleansing, is also taken orally, but does not work on the same principle as the fiber and herb method. This method uses an "oxidation reduction" type of chemical reaction to melt away the material in the bowel. Because the reaction gives off oxygen, which is then absorbed into the body, it is healthful and energizing. Colonic Irrigation Another option in traditional treatment of an impacted bowel is to take enemas or colonic irrigation. These methods force water, herbal teas, or other medications up into the digestive tract through a tube inserted into the rectal cavity. Colonic irrigation goes farther up into the intestines than does an enema. It should be done by a licensed professional. Obviously, this is an unpleasant matter at best, but can be helpful when used in conjunction with oxygen based colon cleansing. The best option for dealing with constipation and the other symptoms of an impacted bowel is to use an oxygen based colon cleansing product. The best of these will contain the mineral germanium in an organic form. This mineral, which is sometimes called Ge-132, is found in some of the most healthful food and herbs around, including garlic, comfrey, watercress, ginseng, and certain edible fungi (mushrooms.) Having germanium in your colon cleanse can help lower blood pressure, improve artery health, and lower cholesterol. It is thought to be anti-carcinogenic, or an agent to prevent

various cancers. It helps the colon cleanse to create even more oxygen, which brings life and health to the internal organs. Germanium is also helpful for reducing the growth of the yeast, Candida albicans, in the body. Candida has been associated with symptoms such as fatigue, itching, headaches, and a host of others.
