Some people are lucky to have constant regular bowel movements. Others may suffer from constipation either through genetics, poor diet, too much alcohol and bad lifestyle choices. Constipation can also be caused by medication.
There is nothing more awful than constipation. It weighs you down and leaves your body feeling toxic. It can result in fatigue, discomfort, pain, illness and if left long term, can have major health risks. It can also be symptomatic of a bigger health issue and if it does not clear quickly, you should seek medical help.
A colon cleanse
A colon cleanse is a fantastic and very popular way to get your digestive system back to normal. It will flush all the toxins out of your body. It is a very good thing to do if you have had an indulgent weekend, a binge eating or drinking session, been on medication, or generally, are feeling run down and stressed.
You only need two ingredients!
- Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- Organic raw unprocessed honey
Apple cider vinegar
Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar is used in many natural health remedies. It contains a bacteria called acetobacter. This is a natural and friendly bacteria that helps to break food down in the stomach.
Apple cider vinegar contains antioxidants that keep the body in good condition, including caffeic, chlorogenic acid, catechin and gallic acid.
There are natural antibiotic properties in the vinegar that help regulate the acid content of the stomach, reducing the pain and effects of acid reflux and heartburn. Acetic acid in vinegar increases the absorption of minerals and vitamins.
Buy the natural organic apple cider vinegar, it is pure and the healthier option.
Organic raw unprocessed honey
Honey is a natural product that has been used in alternative health remedies for centuries.
It contains a phenolic compound called eugenol which has anti-tumor properties.
The natural ingredients in honey are believed to help kill cancer cells. It is filled with probiotics which restore healthy bacteria into your digestive system. Helps the body digest food and absorb vitamins and nutrients.
How do you know if you need a colon cleanse?
- If you are constipated
- If you have aches and pains
- Suffering from fatigue
- Suffering from bad breathe
Constipation, bad breathe and acne all go together. Toxins are in your body and cannot get out. The colon tries to protect itself by producing mucus which builds up on the bowel walls. This causes discomfort and smell.
Headaches, muscle aches, backaches and sciatica can all be symptoms of an impacted colon.
Fatigue is caused by the toxic residue in your colon that circulates through your blood stream.
Acne is a side effect of constipation too. Toxins overwhelm the pores, causing pimples and bad skin.
