The body has two “brains” – the one located in our head, and the one located in our gut. We don’t pay a lot of attention to the colon- we usually think about the heart, brain, and lungs as more important organs to take care of. However, consider this:
1. The colon is the 3rd most common organ where cancer develops. 2. Colon Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Canada.
Think that’s not enough? Also consider this: When toxins end up in our colon, they can ultimately do one of 2 things: 1. Be elimintated through easy bowel movements. 2. Be backed up back into our body, where it can end up in our bloodstream, and ultimately cause cell damage. What is cancer? It’s basically cell damage.
A colon cleanse is necessary in cleaning out the various toxins stuck in our colon, but afterwards it’s just as important to maintain that clean colon.
We can start with of course, a clean diet that’s good for the colon. What foods are involved in this diet? Fiber, Fiber, Fiber…
To promote regularly, we need fiber. That’s obvious to many people, yet a lot of us don’t get enough of it, so we need to stress the point.
Get your greens every single day.
Eat nuts: Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, and chestnuts. Avoid peanuts and cashews as much as possible. They aren’t as healthy as the aforementioned ones.
Whole grains: Choose barley and rye. Consider eating some Kichadi and legumes for lunch. Wild rice is excellent too, and superior to white rice.
A high-fiber diet helps toxins, residue waste, and fecal matter sweep out of the colon. It prevents constipation by stimulating peristalsis, and making our bowels less hard.
Fiber is divided into two types: soluble and insoluble.
Soluble fiber helps increase the amount of good bacteria, which helps rid us of bad bacteria such as E.Coli.
– Oats, rice, and barley.
– Legumes, beans, and peas.
– Citrus, and apples
Insoluble Fiber prevents constipation.
– Whole wheat, rye, brown rice, barley.
– cabbage, beets
– brussel sprouts
Everyone needs between 22-36 grams of fiber a day. Most people unfortunately don’t even come close to reaching this amount. Ideally, we should be getting at least 6 servings of veggies and fruits, and 6+ of whole grains. If you’re not getting enough fiber, consider taking fiber supplements. However, it is better to get it from whole foods.
Green foods contains a ton of chlorophyll, which is great for the colon. Chlorophyll helps smoothens any damaged tissue in the GI tract. With chlorophyll, our body gets more oxygens and releases more toxins.

Many of our diets lack fermented foods. We need these foods to maintain the balance of bacteria in our GI tract. They help keep toxic substances in check, reduce the number of bad bacteria, and provide energy to the colon.
Sources: -Cultured yogurt -Kefir (preferably homemade) -Sauerkraut
Ideally we should drink up to ten cups of water a day. Whenever I feel sick, or dizzy I immediately reach out for my bottle of water. There’s something called the Water Cure, for those who are interested about learning the benefits of water.
Do not consume alcohol, or substitute water with black tea or coffee. If you want, you can add a bit of lemon, or sea salt to the water for some electrolytes.
So once again, here is the type of diet you should follow after colon cleansing:
– Eat foods high in fiber such as whole gains. Make sure you eat soluble and unsoluble fiber. – Eat foods high in chlorophyll such as wheatgrass, and algage. You should do this, no what Colon Cleansing Formulas you use. – Include fermented foods in your diet such as kefir. – Drink up to 10 glasses of water a day and avoid coffee and black tea.
Whether you’re looking for a simple, hassle free, colon cleanse, or a complete comprehensive cleanser, I highly recommend OxyPowder.
Its oxygen-based formula is a powerful solution to your colon cleansing needs. Normal fiber based cleansers expand in order to pull waste and toxins from your body. However, since oxygen is absorbed back into the body, you know what you expel from your body is more than what you put in. Oxy-Powder also helps to gently cleanse, detoxify, and flush your colon without the embarrassing or dangerous side effects of laxatives and herbal colon cleansers!
