Master Cleanse Diet for a Healthy Colon

The colon is also called the large intestine. The ileum (last part of the small intestine) connects to the cecum (first part of the colon) in the lower right abdomen. The colon removes water, salt, and some nutrients forming stool. Muscles line the colon’s walls, squeezing its contents along. Billions of bacteria coat the colon and its contents, living in a healthy balance with the body.  If the colon is affected then the most common occurrence is constipation.

Constipation refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass. Constipation is a common cause of painful defecation. Severe constipation includes obstipation (failure to pass stools or gas) and fecal impaction, which can progress to bowel obstruction and become life-threatening. When a person gets constipated, the colon may be holding 10, 20 or more lbs. The weight by itself isn‘t the problem, but the volume is – large, heavy stools enlarge and stretch out the colon, irritate the colon mucosa, harm the anal canal, and may produce toxins related to fermentation and rotting. Constipation is one of the symptoms of disbacteriosis — a condition where the normal, intestinal flora is dead and missing. When alive, this flora performs several, important functions. One of them is that it protects the colon itself from any inflammation-causing pathogens.

Master Cleanse Diet for a Healthy ColonWhen the colon is affected, the symptoms that come up are-

  • abdominal pain
  • bloating of the abdomen (distention)
  • abdominal tenderness
  • fever
  • rapid heart rate
  • shock
  • bloody diarrhea
  • frequent diarrhea

In order to avoid all of these symptoms and keep one’s colon healthy, it is necessary that one cleanses the colon and one of the methods is through Master Cleanse. A Master Cleanse is another way to cleanse your colon and detox your entire body. It uses lemonade fast along with salt flush and herbal laxatives to fully clean out your system. It’s a great jump start to obtaining and maintaining colon health.

Essentially, the Lemonade Diet is more like a fast. In order to be able to properly detoxify and flush the body, the Lemonade Diet must be followed strictly for 3 to 10 days. (If you’re more advanced you can stay on longer, but staying on the Master Cleanse to long comes with some potentially serious health risks.)

The diet was created by Stanley Burroughs who was an early advocate of natural health, and believed in the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The results people have experienced by going on this diet have been nothing short of amazing. Chronic health problems people have suffered with for years vanish in as little as 10 days on this amazing diet.Master Cleanse Diet for a Healthy Colon
