High-fiber foods help move waste through your digestive system. But, according to Harvard School of Public Health researchers, most people don’t get enough fiber in their diets—less than 15 grams per day on average fiber is one of the best ways to prevent and relieve constipation and other digestive disorders.
Eating high-fiber foods is a natural and easy colon-cleansing method. In addition, some people take granulated wheat fiber supplements to clean out their colons before having a colonoscopy.
NUTRIENTS, a journal dedicated to studying nutrients and their role in health, notes that fiber is also suitable for gut bacteria. Eating more dietary fiber—from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains—increases levels of “good” fecal microbes while reducing the number of pathogens like E Coli and, thus, fewer digestive disorders.
While some studies have shown that increasing fiber intake can decrease the risk of colorectal cancer, at a minimum, most doctors agree that getting enough dietary fiber helps treat constipation, prevent hemorrhoids, and help manage symptoms associated with (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome.
Don’t poo; poo natural colon cleanses; they might just save your life.
Over the years, our bodies have built up toxic waste due to our lifestyles and the food and drink we consume. Storing this toxic waste in our bodies is not ideal and can lead to many health problems further down the line.
The colon’s role in the digestive system is to absorb water and nutrients from food, which has already been broken down by the stomach and small intestine. The colon then neutralizes the waste product to safely pass through your body. In turn, the colon combines bacteria and food waste to produce essential vitamins for your body, such as biotin and vitamin K—so you could say we’re all in this together!
If you don’t care for your colon, you are at risk for developing common conditions such as constipation and diarrhea. A poorly functioning or damaged colon can also lead to insomnia, headaches, and depression. In severe cases, a poorly functioning colon can lead to colon cancer—a disease that is the second biggest cancer killer in the (second only to lung cancer) and which kills more men than breast cancer kills women. This brings to the forefront the seriousness of taking care of your colon and digestive system; a few changes can help you prevent many health conditions associated with poor functioning.
Our bodies are greatly affected by the foods we eat. So it should come as no surprise that consuming large amounts of processed, refined foods— which contain high levels of saturated fat, sugar, and artificial preservatives — damages our health. We may not notice how these foods affect our weight, but we should know what’s happening inside the body.
You cannot always tell by looking at someone whether their body is healthy. Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated with water are essential so your colon can do its job correctly.
The colon plays a vital role in the body. As with any other organ, you should take care of it so that it works well and lasts a long time.
Colon cleansing can help those with the following ailments:
- Menstruation problems
- Breathing difficulties
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Skin problems
- Problematic weight loss
- Abdominal gas
- Bad Breath/Halitosis
- Foul body odor
But it is important to remember that a poorly functioning colon may not be the underlying cause of all these conditions. You should consult your physician if experiencing any of these symptoms or conditions.
Super Health Restorer Smoothie Recipe
Make This Smoothie Work For You As It Cleanses, Detoxes, Rejuvenates And Rebuilds Your Body.
- 2 cups of probiotic-enzymatic liquid
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 10 strawberries
- 1 mango
- 2 apples
- 1 banana
- 1 lemon
- 1 ounce of wheatgrass
Power of Spinach – Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones.
The A and C vitamins in spinach plus the fiber, folic acid, magnesium and other nutrients help control cancer, especially colon, lung, and breast cancers. Folate also lowers the blood levels of something called homocysteine, a protein that damages arteries. So spinach also helps protect against heart disease. The flavonoids in spinach help protect against age-related memory loss. Spinach’s secret weapon, lutein, makes it one of the best foods in the world to prevent cataracts, as well as age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of preventable blindness in the elderly. Foods rich in lutein are also thought to help prevent cancer.
Power of Strawberries – Strawberries have higher levels of vitamin c, fiber, folate and potassium than most other fruits like bananas, apples and even oranges.
Apart from the obvious health benefits, a recent study by Dr. Gene Spiller, Nutrition, and Health Research Center has shown that eating one serving (about 8-10 strawberries) a day can significantly decrease blood pressure, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Other studies showed additional benefits: Strawberries are found to reduce the risk of cancer, enhance memory function and rheumatoid arthritis.
Power of Mangos – Mangos are super fruits! Succulent sweet tropical delights high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Vitamin A. According to a new research study, mango has been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. Several trial studies suggest that polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds in mango are known to offer protection against breast and colon cancers, as well.
Power of Apples – French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones. Another study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who did not drink apple juice on a regular basis.onth. Another study at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease. When we eat apples we can lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Studies have shown that people who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.
Power of Apples & Cancer Prevention
According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.
A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.
One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.
Liver Cancer Prevention
Research has found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.
Power of Lemons – Fresh lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. Lemons are also used as a weight loss aid as lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many healthful substances–notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene–that promote immunity and fight infection. The most valuable ingredient of lemon, next to vitamin C, is citric acid, of which it contains 7.2 percent. Lemon contains more potassium than apples or grapes, which makes its juice beneficial to the heart.
Power of wheatgrass
- Increases and sustains energy naturally
- Detoxifies and cleanses your body
- High alkalinity helps balance your body’s pH level
- Strengthens your immune system
- Insoluble fiber gently cleanses your digestive tract and promotes regularity

Be sure to add this amazingly healthy smoothie to your weekly repertoire of different smoothie concoctions. Be sure to not have the raw spinach more than 3 days in a row. You can change out other greens on the alternate days.
Wishing you life health and happiness
There are those who say your body does a good enough job of detoxifying without needing to do colonics, or any other type of bowel cleansing. That may have been true 50 years ago, but unfortunately that is not our situation today. Most of us live stressed filled lives, live in which we are exposed to so many chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, toxic residues in our environment and our foods. To reclaim our health we must do everything we can to bring the body into homeostasis, which includes paying attention to the health of our colon.
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath using warm purified water to cleanse the anus, rectum, sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, ascending colon, and the caecum.
This bath is important as the colon plays a major role in detoxifying our bodies. Along with assimilating nutrients it is responsible for eliminating food and other body waste. As the colon does its work, It strengthens and protects our immune system from infection and disease. In a normal functioning colon there are billions of friendly bacteria along with non-friendly bacteria; in fact these bacteria make up 60 to 70% of our fecal waste. The friendly bacteria are responsible for keeping the ecosystem of our digestive track in balance and the unfriendly bacteria must be reduced as it causes many health problems. The unfriendly bacteria increase when the colons elegant balance is thrown out of order, by stress, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, toxic residues and poor food choices. Unfortunately, most of us do not have healthy bowels. Suffering from heartburn, indigestion, bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea are extremely common, with well over 60 million Americans purchasing laxatives and antacids, spending over $1 billion on over- the- counter drugs every year.
Dr. Ann Wigmore, taught that all disease starts in the colon…
To remain in homeostasis our bodies should eliminate the food we had eaten within 24 hour’s.
- Those persons, who eat the standard Western diet do not digest and eliminate their food in a timely and healthy manner. The average time the food remains in the digestive is from 60 to 70 hours.
- Constipation is one of the most frequent gastrointestinal complaints in Western countries. Each year in the United States there are over 2.5 million visits to doctors, by patients who are constipated.
- Those who are constantly constipated, or do not have regular bowel movements after eating, create unnecessary stresses on all of their bodies systems.
- The bowel is greatly affected when it is not healthy and balanced and diseases such as colonic polyps, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerated colitis, and colorectal cancer have become quite common in those who indulge in the standard American diet.
- The following illustration shows some of the diseases and problems that affect our digestive system.
Why Do I Need A Colonic?
Fact: Auto intoxication takes place when old waste and toxic materials which are stored in your bowel enter the circulatory system and affect every organ and biological process in your body. When you suffer from auto intoxication you may feel ill, tired, loaded, depressed, lacking in energy, low sex drive and weak. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may benefit from colon hydrotherapy.
Fact: You may want to consider a colonic or an enema if you suspect that you have a health challenge in any of the following areas: Constipation, Candidiasis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Colitus, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Cancer, Hemorrhoids, Prostatitis, Enlarged Prostate, Allergies, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Gallstones, MS, Infertility, Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Body Odor, Mouth Odor, Peeling Lips, Rosacea, ALS, AIDS, Parasites, Infectious Diseases.
What Is Colon Irrigation, Colon Hydrotherapy?
Fact: Colon irrigation is a gentle effective procedure for removing fecal matter, yeast, mucoid plaque, excess mucus, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, food toxins, environmental toxins, anaerobic bacteria and parasites.
Fact: The human colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
Fact: During your 45-60 minute hydrotherapy session, your therapist will introduce 15 to 35 gallons of warm filtered water into your colon. This water will remove impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, mucoid plaque, excess mucus, parasites, worms, yeast,
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
FACT: The number of treatments will be discussed with your therapist. Your therapist will assess your treatment requirements and will discuss them in detail with you. Depending on the condition of your colon, your therapist may advise a number of therapies spread out over a period of time after which you may want to enter into a preventive maintenance program.
Will I Be Embarrassed?
Fact: Our colonics room is en-suite, so there’s changing and toilet facilities right where you need them.
Fact: You will remove your lower garments while in complete privacy and then lie on the colonic table and cover yourself with a warm blanket, sheet or both. Then and only then will your therapist enter the room.
Fact: Your therapist will then only uncover the small area where the speculum will be inserted. The therapist will do a quick visual check for any hemorrhoids, etc. From this point on you will be completely covered.
Are Colonics Painful?
Fact: Some people, if they have large internal or external hemorrhoids may experience a slight irritation or pressure sensation when the speculum is initially inserted. Your therapist will work to make the experience comfortable.
Fact: When the bowels are impacted or you have had chronic constipation there may be some cramping when the colonic first begins. This will not last more than a few seconds. Your therapist will be monitoring your comfort level and will regulate the flow of the water, so you will not experience cramping.
Fact: Your therapist will do some ‘fills’ – where the water goes and you will feel an increased pressure in your bowel. When you feel like you need to go to the toilet your therapist will release the water the moment you tell them to. Your therapist is a trained professional and will be continually monitoring your progress and comfort levels.
Can Colonics Perforate My Bowel?
Fact: A normal bowel movement can build pressures of about 1.5 pounds per square inch.
Fact: A standard hospital enema applies pressure at about 2 pounds per square inch.
Fact: Our gravity-fed colonic system introduces water at a pressure of about 1.5 – 2 pounds per square inch.
Can I Catch Disease From Having A Colonic?
Fact: The water used for your therapy is clean double filtered.
Fact: Your colonic is performed using a disposable speculum and hose kit. For those who are use to a standard metal speculum which utilizes clinical heat sterilization which exceeds health department standards, insuring a safe therapy session, you may request your therapist to use this speculum instead of the disposable speculum.
Don’t Colonics Remove The Good Bacteria From My Bowel?
Fact: Colonics wash out both the good and bad bacteria as well as any trapped gases, waste matter and toxins.
Fact: Your body will immediately begin to place good bacteria into your bowels. To ensure that the bowel flora is as healthy as possible we will provide a probiotic supplement at the end of your colonic therapy. You may choose a probiotic in the form of a capsule, or utilize the rejuvelac which we prepare for you.
Fact: it is advisable to do a rejuvelac implant after your colonic therapy.
Will I Need To Be Near A Toilet After My Colonic Therapy?
Fact: Once your therapy session is complete you will come off the table and immediately go to the toilet as normal. The fecal matter which comes out will be watery, there’s no ‘leaking’ or cramping problems afterwards. You can go about your normal activities.
In times past, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were
taught how to care for the bowel. Somehow, bowel wisdom got lost and it became
something that no one wanted to talk about anymore.”

Dr. Ann Wigmore said, “Disease begins in the colon”.
There’s a lot of misinformation about how raw living foods, enemas and colonics play a major part in bringing our bodies into the healthiest state possible. Every week I receive calls about our program which invariably leads to discussions about enemas and colonics. It’s my desire to answer the hard questions about these two subjects and help you have a better understanding what it takes to insure every part of your body especially you colon is healthy.
The world has really changed in the past 100 years our air, water and food sources no longer are able to contribute to our health as they once did. Our ancestors did not have to deal with the problems associated with the kind of toxins and unhealthful environments we are faced with every day. S0, when you hear someone say your body is naturally equipped to handle the elimination of toxic substances, remind them the world has changed and the standard American diet (SAD) and our 21st century lifestyle demands we pay better attention to every aspect of our health, including our colon.
For those of us who want to have a healthy body and a toxic free colon, we have to overcome the misinformation surrounding colon health. I hope todays article will help you understand the wonderful health that awaits you, as you come to understand how amazingly simple it is to bring your body in to perfect balance by simply eating raw living foods and cleansing your colon with enemas and colonics.
Enemas and colonics are similar therapies which utilize water to cleanse the colon. Both therapies offer wonderful ways to enhance our health and can be used in conjunction with each other, but not at the same time. The main differences between enemas and colonics are that an enema usually can only cleanse the lower part of the colon, while colonics cleanse the entire length of the colon.
When we visit a colon therapist we will be able to relax and let them do the work. She/he will perform the colonic which will consist of a single insertion of the speculum and multiple controlled infusions of water so the entire colon is cleansed during the colonic session, which usually lasts from 45 -60 minutes. Enemas can be self-administered and if done properly effectively cleanse the lower bowel (descending and sigmoid colon) and are completed in just a few minutes. Here at Creative Health Institute our health instructors teach our students and guests how to effectively carry out this simple, but effective therapy and we have a professional colonic therapist available around the clock.
Some of the main differences between the enema and colonic therapies are:
- Enemas do not have to be administered by a professional. You can administer them yourself or have assistance is necessary.
- An enema involves the one-time infusion of water. It sits in the lower part of the colon for period of time, and then the person sits on the toilet.
- Enema kits are available at your local drugstore. You can also purchase them on line
- Colonics are administered by a professional.
- Water is administered through a special device called a speculum.
- Fecal matter leaves the body via a tube and you will not see or smell the fecal matter during the session.
- At the end of the session, you will sit on a toilet and pass any residual water and fecal matter.
Tomorrow, I will answer all of your questions on colonics and on Tuesday I will address the wonderful effects of enemas, and how making both of these modalities part of your health regiment will enable you to strengthen every system in your body.
Wishing you and your loved ones the healthiest life ever!
