How To Cleanse Your Colon

Homemade Colon Cleanse Methods

How To Cleanse Your Colon? There are many different types of colon cleanse methods. Detox foods can give a very cleaning effect to the whole digestive system. An effective homemade colon cleanse is made either from Psyllium Husk, sea salt, plain water and even coffee!

You either eat them or do a High Colonic Enema. Do not drink the coffee. It is highly effective as an enema solution.

So let us look at the various ways of how to cleanse your colon.

With Colon Detox Diet

Raw Food Detox Diet

A colon cleansing diet that consists of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds is one of the most effective colon cleansing diet that I know off, and have experienced.

It is a healthy lifestyle you can adopt if you are serious about keeping your colon clean after cleansing.

Macrobiotic Diet

This is also a very cleansing diet. It consists of certain vegetables, miso, brown rice and other healthy whole grains. It has high-fiber and is low in fat.

I have tried both the raw food detox diet and the macrobiotic diet and they both make you feel extremely clean within.

Antioxidant Diet

This is a cleansing and healing diet. It consists of certain vegetables, fruits and other healthy ingredients.

Antioxidant fruits and vegetables contain nutrients that protect the body from harmful free-radicals.

More How To Cleanse Your Colon

Other than the fiber-rich colon cleanse diets there are some homemade cleanses that you can use.

It is easy to make your own homemade colon cleanse. It could either be the drinking type or the high colonic enema.

Let's look at a few.

1. Homemade Colon Cleanse

How to cleanse your colon? Use a homemade colon cleanse that does not cause diarrhea. It consists of:

Psyllium Fiber

Psyllium Husk

Psyllium seed husk is an effective and common fiber to use because it moves the bowels.

See the images of the Plantago psyllium plant and the seed husks above.

Flax seed can also be used, but Psyllium Husk brushes the colon well.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Detox

Doing a Bentonite Detox with Calcium Bentonite Clay loosens deposits and detoxes - the waste build-up and toxins that stick to the colon walls.

Liquid Chlorophyll

Liquid Chlorophyll is a very effective ingredient to detoxify the body. It also removes heavy metals.

You can make your own liquid chlorophyll by juicing any greens such as spinach.

Wheat grass juice is a very good source of liquid chlorophyll as well.



The good flora in your intestines must be replenished so that your intestines have the best environment for digestion. You can buy Probiotics in most health shops.

You can also make yogurt or kefir daily as they contain good bacteria. See kefir grains image above.

Parasite Cleanser

It is important to kill and remove the parasites. A colon cleanse will bring parasites out, but parasite cleansers kill the parasites.

This ingredient is important if you are going on to do a liver flush.

2. Sea Salt Colon Cleanse

Sea Salt Colon Cleanse

How to cleanse your colon? Use the salt water cleanse. It is very effective. It is recommended in Ayurveda as a colon cleanser. It must be drunk the first thing in the morning. It is also called the salt water flush.

It flushes the whole digestive system and cleanses you. This is also convenient as you eliminate within one to two hours after taking it.

Use only sea salts that are unrefined.

3. High Colonic Enema

Enema Kit

How else to cleanse your colon? An effective colon cleanse uses a Home Enema Kit with any type of enema solution such as coffee solution or just warm water. It is a form of colonic irrigation. To experience colonic irrigation, you can get a Colema Board.

I find doing a colonic cleanse like a High Colonic Enema effective. It takes about half to one hour to give yourself one or two sessions of enema, and to eliminate it completely. I prefer this as I can go out and not worry about going to the toilet.

4. Water Therapy

Drink water

Water therapy is effective once you have done many cleanses to keep your digestive tract relatively clean. Some find it difficult to do as it requires you to drink six glasses of water first thing in the morning.

5. Juice Fasting or Water Fasting

This is more difficult to do because you do not eat any solid food. Start with one day and increase upto 40 days. It gives a thorough cleansing of not only the colon, but the whole body.

Get a good Fruit Juicer to give you the maximum amount of pure juice without the fiber. The most important thing in a water fast is to use pure water, which you can get out of a good Water Filter.

All the cleanses mentioned above are good in their own way. Bookmark this "How To Cleanse Your Colon" page and refer to it whenever you want to do a cleanse.

Do each of the above one at a time. Do not try more than one type of cleanse at a time. It could overload your system. I did that once, and I broke out into some real heavy sweating, that was very uncomfortable. So please do not try that.

Get the advice of your doctor, if you have any kind of health problem. 

Once you have cleansed either using a fiber-cleanse with Psyllium Husks,  Calcium Bentonite clay and liquid chlorophyl, or using a salt water cleanse, or using the high colonic enema, you can maintain a relatively clean colon with a detox diet or water therapy with the very occasional bowel cleanse.
