Have you ever thought about cleansing? It's one the most beneficial things we can do for our bodies. 70-80% of our immune system is in our digestive tract. A clogged or sluggish digestive tract means less nutrition for our bodies and can even leave our body toxic. Hippocrates said, "All disease begins
in the gut." And many people believe "Death begins in the colon." Do you find yourself tired all the time, forgetful, anxious, bloated, having skin issues, trouble with fertility, sugar cravings or even struggling with the seasonal changes? (This list could really go on and on.) Are you just sick and tired of being sick and tired? Then you may consider cleansing the body.
Bathroom talk not what everyone loves to talk about or even mention..... Unless you are man or nurse :) But it's something that we really should think about. How many times a day do you go number 2, aka...poop? Did you know most people carry around at least 7 pounds of stagnant, impacted fecal matter in their colons. Well I just find that disgusting! You really should be having 2-3 bowel movements a day that are fast and easy to pass. They should be well formed and float in the toilet. Having a clogged or sluggish colon affects every aspect of our bodies. It can allow toxins to push to other organs of our bodies, ultimately causing all sorts of disease processes.
Young Living offers and AMAZING colon cleanse called the "Cleansing Trio Kit". I highly recommend it. I am in the middle of doing it myself and I am feeling great!!
Dr. Leanne Deardeuff and Dr. David Deardeuff have a wonderful book, Inner Transformations Using Essential Oils, to help you with cleansing your body naturally. It is loaded with a ton of useful information. You can purchase it off of Amazon. It is a MUST read, REALLY!! Here is an excerpt from the book:
A good colon cleanse is well balanced to support the kidneys and liver while you are cleansing. A lot of toxins are released while cleansing that upon entering the blood stream or liver make you nauseous, headachy, weak or sick. A well balanced colon cleanse will have herbs in it to break up mucus, release the caked-on lining from the bowel, absorb toxins so they don't get into the bloodstream, stimulate peristaltic action and add bulk to help remove the intestinal contents through the system.
The cleanse that I recommend is from Young Living Essential Oils. It's called the Cleansing Trio Kit. It has enzymes to help you digest your food until your body can do so on its own. Young Living's colon cleanse tastes good and doesn't make you sick while you take it.
While on Young Living's cleanse you regulate it according to your own body's needs. Everyone is different as to how much of the colon cleanse they need, so you get to make your own adjustments. You really have to experiment with it. If you have any concerns, by all means do your cleanse under the supervision of a good natural healthcare practitioner.
There are a few different ideas on how to cleanse. Some are more gentler than others. For example, one healer suggests that you take eight to ten capsules of the cleanser the first day to "blast it out," if you will. From there you decrease the amount that you taking by a pill a day. I personally think that would be a good approach for someone who is having great difficulty with constipation and can afford to to be at home near a toilet all day for several days. It does cleanse the colon faster than the more gentle method but it is possible that the person could become quite sick to the stomach and also have severe headaches by this method.
I recommend that if the more gentle method described below does not work for you, try the above method to see what it can accomplish.
With either method, you should be drinking twelve 8oz glasses of water daily.
The way I usually suggest that my patients colon cleanse is to start with:
•One Comfortone capsule in the morning.
•Along with the Comfortone, take Essentialzymes caplet 3 times daily between meals. Drink your water!
•The next day take a capsule in the morning and another at night.
•Increase by one capsule a day alternating day and night until you are getting two or three bowel movements a day.
•After you have achieved two or three bowel movements a day, begin taking 1 tsp of ICP in the mornings. The best way to use it is to stir it into juice or water (I used Orange juice) and drink it down quickly, before it gets thick. Add a 1/2 tsp of ICP a day until you are achieving large bulky stools but are not constipated. Dr.Gary Young suggests that you continue adding ICP until you get to 1 Tbsp a day in the morning and 1 Tbsp a day at night.
•Continue this colon cleansing until the mucoid plaque drops out of the colon. This may take between 6 weeks and 18 months.
