When your colon becomes full of toxic waste, it actually starts to affect the rest of your body. At a certain point your body will start to feed off the toxins instead of the nutrients in the food. This process is absolutely disgusting. But it's something your body does all the time. It's important to keep your body clear of the toxic waste so you can keep your body at tip top shape.
Most common symptoms of toxicity of the colon include:
- Poor immunity
- Skin rashes
- Muscle and joint pain
- Diarrhea, indigestion, gas, bloating, constipation, stomachache
- Vaginal infections
- Bladder problems
- Depression, mood swings, and anxiety
- Brain fog and memory loss
- 2 tablespoons organic maple syrup (grade B)
- 1 organic lemon, freshly squeezed
- ½ teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
- 12 ounces filtered water
Mix the ingredients listed above and drink the mixture 4 times daily for two weeks.
Do Not Starve Yourself
Most cleanses suggest that you should fast and starve yourself the entire time of the cleanse. Sometimes only partial time of the cleanse.
With this cleanse, you still need to eat.
Remember to eat a "slow carb diet".
A slow carb diet is a special diet that consists of 5 special rules.
1. Avoid white carbs
White carbs are: white bread, rice, cereal, pasta, potatoes, fried foods and tortillas.
2. Dont change up your diet. You need to eat the same meals over and over again.
You can eat as much as you like, and it is encouraged. But you should restrict yourself to only having 3-4 meals a day and you should repeat them.
3. Avoid drinking your calories
Drinks that are loaded with calories that you should avoid: Milk, fruit juice and soft drinks.
4. Just say NO to fruit
Fruit is packed full of carbs.
5. One day a week, eat your normal diet
You can go nuts, go crazy and whatever the heck you want.
The truth is, if you drink nothing but juice/colon cleanse for a whole week, you’ll lose weight, that's a given, but it’s because you’re not eating, you're starving yourself and not because your body is “detoxing”. The water is stored in your muscles with glycogen. When you eat a low-calorie diet, you use up those glycogen stores, and lose the water weight with it. That will help you lose a lot more weight in the end.
You’ll gain that water weight right back when you return to your normal diet. You’re also missing out on all those other vital nutrients like fat, fiber, and protein. In fact, some cleanses suggest that you avoid exercise when you’re on them because your caloric intake is so low—which leads to fatigue and dizziness.
