People have different reasons for wanting to do a colon cleanse. Sometimes it is recommended by homeopathic health professional and sometimes people want to clean their colon simply because they feel like they should. Most people are interested in how to clean the colon naturally and with good reason.

No matter why you are interested in doing a colon cleanse you will want to look for a product or method that is all natural. There are two main ways to go about cleaning your colon. You can look for natural products or you can try certain foods that will get the job done.

Cleaning the Colon Naturally with Juice

You can use juicing to help you cleanse your colon naturally. Juice ingredients that help clean the colon naturally include; kale, apples, prunes, grapes, cucumbers, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries, ginger root and lemons.

This type of juice can be taken a few times a day and is an all-natural way to cleanse you colon. It is preferred that you choose organic fruits and vegetables to make your cleansing juice because it is really the only way to be an all-natural colon cleanse.

Natural Colon Cleansing Products

The other way to naturally cleanse your colon is to use an all-natural product that flushes out the large intestine. Now there are many products out there that claim to be all-natural but it is up to you to determine which ones will best suite you. What you want to look for is all-natural ingredients and little to no filler ingredients and in-active ingredients.

Some ingredients to look for in all-natural colon cleansing products are Senna, psyillium husk and cascara sagrada.

Clean The ColonSenna is an herb used in many natural healing cures and some of its forms are very potent laxatives. Be cautious because Senna is shown to be toxic in very high dosages so consult with a professional before taking.

Psyillium husk expands in the colon creating a gel that ‘scrapes’ your colon clean. Be sure to take lots of water with psyillium husks to make sure it finds its way through your colon fully.

Cascara sagrada is another popular colon cleansing supplement ingredient. This herb has been used as a laxative for many years.
