Colon cleansing is one of the best ways to cure acne naturally. Colon cleansing is a form of internal detoxification.
Detoxification is one of the seven essential elements for clear skin and also a highly recommended method for
improving health and maintaining wellness. The skin is one of the 5 eliminatory organs of the body along with the
liver, lungs, kidneys, and colon. When one or more of the eliminatory organs aren’t working efficiently, all the
organs are burdened with having to remove a large amount of accumulated toxins. Acne and other skin conditions
are often a sign that the eliminatory organs are not working properly. The toxins that should have been removed by
the other organs circulate back into the blood and try to escape through the skin.
The colon’s two primary functions are to absorb more nutrients from the healthy foods that we eat and to remove
waste from the body. When the colon is clogged, the body is missing out on valuable nutrients and toxins aren’t
eliminated properly. Colon cleansing involves taking natural ingredients such as herbal supplements, bentonite
clay, and colon cleansing foods in order to remove toxins and wastes from the colon wall and digestive tract.
When the colon is cleansed properly it allows more waste to be eliminated from the body and more nutrients to be
absorbed for maximum nourishment. This also allows proper elimination of toxins from the skin’s internal functions,
leading to the elimination of acne.
Common herbal ingredients and food supplements for colon cleansing include aloe vera gel, flax seed meal,
psyllium husk, psyllium seed powder, and slippery elm bark. The best herbs and natural supplements for colon
cleansing are those which provide mucilage gel for soothing and assisting the colon with proper elimination. All of
the herbs mentioned above (especially aloe vera) provide health benefits beyond colon cleansing. They also
deliver highly beneficial nutrients to the body. Another natural supplement for detoxifying the colon is green juice.
Wheatgras juice, barleygrass juice and other juices from green leafy vegetables provide nutrients that detoxify and
heal the colon. Although active manuka honey doesn’t contain mucilage, it’s also a super ingredient for detoxifying
and healing the colon and digestive system. When the digestive system and colon are healed and functioning
properly, then natural healing of acne can take place.
Bentonite clay is becoming more popular as a natural colon cleansing product due to its’ excellent ability to absorb
toxins and waste from the colon wall. Bentonite clay assists the colon’s eliminatory process by acting as a bulking
agent. Like psyllium fiber, bentonite clay sweeps out stuck on waste removing it from the colon. The clay is not
digested in the same manner as food, but instead passes through the digestive system. It stimulates intestinal
peristalsis which are the muscular contractions that move food and stool through the bowels. The clay and the
absorbed toxins are eliminated together which keeps the toxins from being reabsorbed into the bloodstream. The
colon cleansing properties of bentonite clay eliminate acne naturally by preventing toxins from attempting to escape
through the skin.
The best colon cleansing foods are those which are high in dietary fiber. The two types of dietary fiber are soluble
and insoluble. Soluble fiber is that which is easily assimilated into water and other liquids. The result is a gel-like
substance useful in the assistance of soothing the digestive system and eliminating waste. Insoluble fiber’s main
purpose is to sweep the colon walls. Insoluble fiber stays solid and passes through the digestive system
undigested. Both forms of dietary fiber are necessary for the proper elimination of waste through the digestive
system. The best foods for colon cleansing include beans and legumes, raw soaked nuts and seeds, green leafy
vegetables, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, bell peppers, apples, pears, plums, grapes,
mangoes, citrus fruits, and berries.
Caution: Before using herbal ingredients for colon cleansing and general nourishment, be sure to conduct
research about possible side effects from taking each herb (especially if you’re currently taking any medications).
