Colon cleansing is beneficial for everyone. Normally, people can carry 5 pounds or more of excess waste in their colon. For many reasons (our high-protein & low-fibre diet, stress, the use of medication, dehydration, unhealthy micro-biome), these fecal buildups have resisted your body’s attempts at elimination. This can result in poor digestion and deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals. If the nutrients are not absorbed properly into the bloodstream because the intestines are clogged up, your body may not receive proper nutrition.
OmDetox herbs sweep the colon clean of all waste that should have made it out of your body. Our natural supplements are efficient at cleansing the intestines and assisting in the process of detoxification. The bentonite clay and psyllium husk powders can absorb water and toxins as they move through the intestines.
Years of accumulated waste will be pushed out, resulting in immediate well-being. Chronic constipation, bloating, abdominal pain and gas can finally be eliminated. Migraines, skin problems, insomnia and low immunity are also usually caused by obstructions in the bowels. Following our detox program could be the end of all your problems.
The benefits of colon cleansing for weight loss
The human body is an intelligent and powerful machine that is constantly detoxifying itself. All organs work together to maintain homeostasis, filtering out toxins to eliminate them. However, our modern diets and the omnipresence of environmental pollutants make the job more difficult than it should be.
Our colon (and other organs) often show signs of toxicity. Weight gain or the inability to lose weight is a sign that the colon needs to be detoxified. Doing a cleanse allows elimination of old waste and rapid weight loss. Lifestyle changes are also necessary in order to maintain this ideal weight: We encourage you to adopt a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and exercise daily.
On the first day that you will start following our pre-cleanse diet recommendations, you will start feeling better and losing weight. A whole food plant-based diet is recommended by numerous health practitioners to clean the colon, lose weight and to prevent common western diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
There are a variety of health problems that can result from poor colon health. Eating a diet that is rich in processed foods, saturated fat, industrial sugar and chemicals causes toxins to stick to the intestinal walls, causing poor digestion and weight gain.
The lack of fibre in the food we eat does not encourage regular bowel movements. It is causing an accumulation of toxic waste in the bowels. Chronic constipation is a common condition that is too often ignored. A healthy colon should produce one to three formed bowel movements per day. Anything less than that is called constipation.
Stagnant stools in the colon create a perfect environment for the breeding of bad bacteria and parasites. When we are constipated, toxins that are meant to be eliminated are reabsorbed through the colon wall, creating different immune reactions, fatigue and weight gain. Once the colon is cleaned, energy levels can rise.
A detox allows the body to release toxins from the system, creating a feeling of rejuvenation. All the energy that was used to move toxins out of the colon can now be used elsewhere. People that completed our program report having more energy and endurance at the gym, facilitating muscle gains and weight loss.
Most people know about the health benefits of colon cleansing, like the prevention of colon cancer. However, just a few are aware of how effective it can be when it comes to weight loss. During the OMDetox 7-day detox and colon cleanse, people may lose 5 to 10 kilos, more or less. From that amount, there is about 1 to 2 kilos worth of food, water and fecal matter, which is normally lost during the first 2 days of the cleanse and gained back once you start eating again.
You will also lose weight from the accumulated waste in your bowels. Over the years, undigested food particles putrefy and solidify in the numerous cavities of the colon. Impacted faeces build up and create blockages in the intestine, making the absorption of nutrients difficult. This leads to low energy levels and a weak immune system.
When the colon is overloaded with toxic material, the whole body suffers and becomes sluggish. Weight loss becomes an impossible task as the body becomes more toxic. Cleansing the colon will support the proliferation of beneficial bacteria and encourage better digestion, which will promote weight loss.
Fasting for 7 days will also allow you to lose weight rapidly. With no food to eat, your body will burn fat cells for energy, resulting in a slimmer body in just a few days. Most people lose weight in their face, their abdomen, inner thighs and arms. Visit our weight loss page to learn more about what happens in your body during the cleanse.
What is colon cleansing
Professional colonic irrigation can be painful for certain people and sometimes embarrassing. The impressive machine and the presence of another person in the room can be a no-go for many of us. During our 7 day detox, colon cleansing is performed with our enema bag, in the comfort and the privacy of your home. The water will gradually enter your rectum and fill your colon, permitting proper elimination. You will find that this is a more gentle approach that will let you truly enjoy the colon cleansing experience. Enemas are better performed twice daily during our 7 day program because fasting is involved. Without any bowel movement, it is important to rid the body of all the toxins that have been dumped in the colon.
How to do the colon cleansing at home
An Enema is a gentle and effective colon cleansing method that requires two litres of water at body temperature. This process will ensure that all the toxins that you are releasing through fasting are eliminated. It will clean out toxic deposits that have been accumulating on the colon walls over the years. The enema will be retained for a short period of time, until both water and faeces are eliminated with the natural peristaltic movement of the body. Watch this video on how to perform the enema at home.
How to massage the colon
Massaging will help you relax and move the water further up the colon. You can see on the picture at the top of the page that the large intestine has a very special shape. Start massaging the sigmoid colon under the belly button and move towards the lower left side. Move up on the descending colon, towards the left rib cage, then across. Gently massage the transverse colon under the rib cage, from left to right. Continue on the ascending colon, down the right side of the abdomen.
After you have retained the liquid for several minutes, sit on the toilet and relax. It might take a while and a few releases to empty the entire colon. Be patient. Do not be alarmed by the odour of the water. The accumulation of solidified and putrefied food over the years will make this bowel movement smell a little bit worse than what you are used to. It is better out than in!
When you release the water after the enema, make sure to look into the toilet to see what’s floating. You might be surprised at what was living inside of you. Parasites (or worms) are organisms that live in animals and humans. They live inside our gut and feed off our nutrients. They are most commonly transmitted through contaminated faeces, water and food, poor hygiene and the contact with our pet animals. Visit our parasite page to learn more about them.
* If you choose not to fast and to follow a OmDetox diet plan along with our 7 day detox and colon cleanse program, enemas are not mandatory.
