You pay attention to your body and care for it, outside as well as in. You make sure you get enough vitamins and minerals, exercise daily and rest. You choose the perfect fashions for you, and always keep a positive mental attitude.
Of course, you worry about the state of your colon; since sometimes you’re too busy with everything else, you want to have a better but less time consuming method to cleanse it.
There are colon cleanse teas that you can drink to help you out. As always, make sure you talk to your doctor about which tea is suitable for you before you try them out.
For hundreds of years, the Amish have brewed and consumed organic teas in order to cleanse their colon naturally and efficiently. You can follow in their footsteps and make your own!
Choose or combine these three main components – senna leaf, psyllium or flaxseed into your favorite teas and drink up every day.
You can even add fruits or peppermint to your taste. It is also recommended by the Amish to drink a glass of hot water after waking to add to the tea’s strength.
- Psyllium – this is a soluble fiber. By soluble, it means it will melt when you add it to water and turn into a gel. It can give you other health benefits aside from colon cleansing, like stabilization of bowel movement, and keeping the bowel healthy. It can also help to lower your blood glucose and cholesterol levels. It works the same as a dietary fiber, making your fecal matter softer and intensifies its bulk so that it will be easy to move. It also helps by making hemorrhoids unable to form.
- Flaxseed – flaxseed is chock full of alpha-linolic and essential fatty acids which can help keep you healthy, and is also a natural laxative. However, flaxseed oil doesn’t seem to have the same laxative value as flaxseed itself, so it is not meant for colon cleanse. Make sure you drink a lot of water when you take flaxseed since if there’s not enough water in your system, it will have the opposite effect of making it difficult to have a bowel movement. Make sure you follow the label instructions or talk to your doctor if you’re not certain of using this.
- Senna Leaf – A natural herbal laxative in and of itself, many OTC or over the counter laxatives have the same composition it has. It acts as a stimulant which triggers the intestine muscles to constrict and facilitate in bowel movement. One of the strongest laxatives, people who have heart illnesses, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease must not use senna leaf since it has severe side effects.
Teas can soothe and bring calm when added to your daily routine. When you come back from work, exercise or have some difficulties in mind, take a drink and help your colon at the same time.
