What is Colon Cleansing?

What is colon cleansing?

I've certainly heard that many times!

It refers to cleaning your colon of old fecal matter, toxins and other nasty things that have decided to take residence in your colon.

Yep, that's right, you have bad stuff in your colon and this is why many believe that colon cleansing is beneficial.

The food we eat causes our body to suffer and do weird things, to remedy this we have to cleanse our insides to help our body.

Colon cleansing can be done in many ways, but the four most popular methods are:

  1. Enemas
  2. Colon Hydrotherapy or Irrigation
  3. Herbal Powders or Supplements
  4. Through Diet


Enemas are usually done at home and require only the most basic enema equipment. This equipment can cost as little as $10 and you can often find a solid enema kit and friendly instructions at your local pharmacy.

Read more in-depth about enemas at the cleansing enemas page.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Irrigation

Hydrotherapy and irrigation are done at a clinic with professionals, if you're considering colon cleansing for the first time I really recommend going to one of these.

Make sure to look up the clinic before you go so you know that they are good and trustworthy. Ask people or google!

Herbal Powders & Supplements

You can make your own colon cleansers by mixing natural herbs.

If you are new, which I think you might be, it might be wise to buy a professionally formulated herbal colon cleanser.

You can also find a lot of products you can buy at your local health store, so you do not have to order online if you do not want to.


Last but definitely not least is diet!

This is a tough one in my opinion because the diet you eat is an ingrained habit. You've probably been eating similar food for years.

To take a step and break that requires determination which I know you have! :-)

Here are the most important foods you should eat truckloads of (except the last two!):

  1. Fruits
  2. Vegetables
  3. Nuts
  4. Seeds

And here are foods you should avoid at all costs...

  1. Processed Foods
  2. Sugar
  3. Alcohol
  4. Dairy

Remember to throw in organic, healthy animal meats from time to time. They are nutritious, but make sure they aren't filled with chemicals.

I hope all this answered your question, which I believe was "What is colon cleansing?", right?
