Banish Belly and Lose Weight:
In Just 5 Minutes A Day  

Clean Colon  

        You may have seen infomercials that sell various ingredients (including cleansing nutrients and chemicals) to cleanse the colon that works wonders and brings weight down.  Itís true that healthy colon is essential to good health, which makes colon cleansing a must. Everything accumulated in our bowels can be toxic. As these toxins build up, we end up with various diseases, such as being overweight, constipation, digestive problems, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Stomach Pain, brain fog, sluggishness/lack of energy, yeast infections.  There are so many colon cleansers in the market who like to sell their products at an initial startup cost of $40-$80.. Colonix, OxyPowder, Almighty Cleanse, etc.  

        However, there is almost no information, especially free information that will explain colon cleansing for your health.  

Colon Cleansing for Your Health:  

        So, why do we need colon cleansing? In addition to protruded belly and weight, one word...Toxins.  

        You see, the colon is one organ that indirectly and directly affects all the other organs in the body. When it's clogged up, the liver for example, can't do its job properly. When the liver can't work efficiently, the kidney suffers, and we notice other ill-effects. So to start curing any symptoms and to get better, we must have clean colon.  

        The truth is our colon, for most of us, is in an unhealthy state, filled with mucoid plaque, toxins, and a complete mess. Our colon is clogged, leading to constipation. How did we reach this state? Through a combination of a bad diet, lack of exercise, poor lifestyle choices, and bad living conditions.  

        Take, our diet for instance. Most Americans consume too much protein. Protein is necessary, and completely healthy, but too much can lead to over-acidity, which is not good. An overabundance of acid in the body can take a toll on the colon, as it depletes necessary minerals and electrolytes from our body. This then leads to the inability of the colon to tackle harmful bacteria, and toxins.    

        Many of us not only overeat, but eat foods on a daily basis such as Cookies, cakes, processed foods, chips, sweets, etc. which were not available in nature to be eaten by man. Eating unnatural-processed foods is a big reason why there is mucoid plaque stuck in our colon, and why we all need cleansing our colon.  

        Harmful chemicals from prescription medication, food, water, air, and pesticides, etc. every single day add toxins to our system, and our immune system has to work overtime to rid our body of these nasty chemicals. This weakening of the immune system leads to a weakening of the colon as well.  

        Clean Colon provides an alternative method to treat many of our symptoms and problems. It's not just for people with constipation, but for anyone who wishes to feel better, and strengthen their inner organs.  

        Bowel cleansing is not just about cleansing the colon. It's about indirectly cleansing our small intestines, large intestines, and stomach as well.  When we do a cleanse, we are actually cleansing our entire body.  

What does our colon do?  

        The colon consists of the portion of the large intestine that runs from the cecum down to our rectum. The large intestine's purpose is to store waste, reabsorb water, and help maintain electrolyte and water balance. The large intestine does not play any part in actually digesting our food (although bacteria do use the fiber for their own benefit) - that's already done in the small intestine.  

How do you know if you have a healthy colon?

         Simple, if you have at least one bowel movement a day, with solid bowels, and very little constipation. Of course, if you're a weight-lifter and eat 4000-5000 calories a day, 2 or so bowel movements is normal. But if you're like normal people, you should ideally only have 1-2 bowel movements a day. No more, no less.

 So, what do normal bowels look like?  

         A healthy bowel is 8-12 inches long and around 2.5 inches wide.

         The bowels are solid, aren't in little pieces or slimy-like.

         Contrary to popular belief, healthy bowels do not have to sink. Or float. Depending on your diet, it can go both ways.  Bowel with fruit, vegetables and enough fiber normally floats.

         Normal bowels have a brownish color, but a light green color is ok too (unless some kind of food color is consumed).

         A normal bowel movement involves absolutely no straining.  It's pain-free, and effortless.

         Many people who choose to clean their large intestines have constipation problems, marked by constant straining when excreting. This is unhealthy and can lead to other serious illnesses. When constipation occurs, remnants of foods remain inside your body longer than they have to, which is dangerous. Think about this: What happens when you leave a peeled banana outside for several days? It turns rotten. Well, you can imagine why this could cause problems inside your body.  

        Even if you don't have constipation, colon cleansing can help anyone, especially older people.  

        We routinely clean our furniture, our toilets, our cars, and the like. Why? To get rid of junk that accumulates. Our body essentially works the same way. Junk, in the form of waste along with toxins accumulates and burdens our major organs such as our large intestine. When our intestine is clogged, we can't absorb necessary nutrients. Toxins circulate back to our body, causing autoimmune diseases such as acne. Cleansing our bowels is a way of maintaining a clean, efficient body.  

What does cleansing involve?  

        Colon cleansing, typically involves a commercial product such as Colonix, or a natural recipe consists of taking a fiber-shake once a day, gradually working up to 3-5 times a day for 2-4 weeks. People usually do a quick fast beforehand, it's not necessary. During the cleanse it is important not to overeat, and not to consume any junk food.  

        There are people who choose to cleanse with a colon cleanser. There are many in the market right there. The most popular ones are Colonix, OxyPowder, and Dual Action Cleanse. Startup supply may cost between $40 to $80.  These claim Colon Cleansing as a simple 3-8 week process that doesn't require any drastic diet changes, or a complete fast.  Those who try claim to heal acne, candida, brain fog, digestive problems, and sluggishness.  By the end of the regimen, most will feel the difference and feel livelier due to the removal of toxins, healthier bowels, no constipation, and faster transit times. Some people actually even use it to lose weight, since it's so effective in doing that.  

      How effectively these cleansing agents work?  Do these add any more toxins to your system?  You donít need to worry.  The techniques in this book are not only free, but are the most natural way to cleanse your colon,  and at the same time banish your stomach and bring the weight down.
