The Detoxification series -Intestinal tract cleansing .

Our health is closely linked to the state of our intestines.

The first step to healthy living is Detoxification , It kick starts your system and gives your body room to rejuvenate.I don’t recommend this as a long-term solution for good health, but there is some evidence that cleansing the body can help kick start people into a healthier routine. .

Holiday wining and dining can do quite a number on the digestive system leading to intestinal tract crisis.

Intestinal tract crisis arises due to poor quality food (fast foods) , carbonated drinks ,smoking ,drinking and insufficient intake of fruits and vegetables . The digestive tract gets clogged with fats ,harmful bacteria and toxins . The clogging causes headaches, low energy level ,weight gain, skin allergy, constipation, indigestion, stress and bloating  this can result in obesity and chronic diseases such as colon cancer ,liver disease ,kidney disease ,diabetes ,heart disease and hypertension.

This has made it very crucial for us to cleanse and detoxify our intestines and colon in order to maintain good health and promote longevity. Cleansers remove the harmful toxins and wastes that can build up due to: poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, reduced water intake, drug intake and  lifestyle changes

How do we detoxify our intestines ?

The answer lies in Fiber ,Health experts advise us to consume food high in fiber in order to make our digestive system more effective and to clear our digestive tract .

Fiber is proven to .

  • Give a feeling of fullness.
  • Dissolve and burn fats
  • Facilitate metabolism
  • Cleanse the colon

Food that rich in fiber will cleanse the colon by removing the harmful toxins in it, by softening stools and improving bowel movement.

Foods rich in fiber ;

  • Fresh fruits like raspberries, pears, apples, etc.
  • Fresh vegetables like artichokes, peas, broccoli, etc.
  • Cereals,oats, whole grains, nuts, seeds and beans.
  • Or use any of these in supplement form.

Alternatively  if you require a quick kick start you can purchase psylium husk fiber or phyto fiber

Psylium Husk Powder


Include pure psyllium husk powder into your diet to jump start your cleanse. As an alternative, you can purchase a psyllium-based cleanse product/kit, which will include other ingredients to aid cleansing.

Start by taking 1 rounded teaspoon of psyllium husk powder once per day and see how it works. Take 1 rounded teaspoon one to three times per day for the greatest benefit. The powder can be mixed with juice, water, milk or any liquid. Keep in mind that it thickens whatever you add it to and also takes on a slightly gelatinous quality. You can also incorporate it into smoothies, stews, soups, breads and other foods. Psyllium is best taken 10 to 20 minutes before or after eating, but not at the same time as a meal. During a fiber cleanse with psyllium, you should drink extra fluids as the psyllium absorbs the extra moisture content of the bowels.

You can purchase psylium husk powder at your nearest health store .
