Maintain Your Health and Vitality with Body Cleansing

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:52 PM

A thorough body cleansing might help to reduce the occurrence and effects of health problems like infections, Candida, acne, ulcers, and overall sluggishness.

Your body may store different types of toxins due to various factors like stress, environmental factors, irregular eating habits and poor lifestyle. You may not always chew your food thoroughly. Many of us overeat and tax our digestive organs that have to work overtime to digest as much of the food as possible. Colon health and efficiency may be affected. A complete body cleanse may help to keep your body healthier so that your body may absorb nutrients more effectively so that you have a healthier body and live a better life.


Complete Body Cleansing
A complete body cleanse regimen might involve a colon cleanse, parasite cleansing and even a liver flush or cleanse. A colon cleanse might be recommended to precede the others as the liver and kidney release waste. These toxic substances have to pass through the colon for excretion. If your colon is not clean, this waste could get absorbed within the body again and intensify your problems.


Colon Cleanse
Colon cleansing may help to clear your colon of toxic substances and allow better absorption of minerals and nutrients. It may help you overcome constipation.


Parasite Cleansing
Parasites are believed to be the cause of many ailments. They sometimes remain undetected for a long time. Medications may not kill all parasites. Some people suggest that taking a combination of herbs like wormwood,  black walnut hulls, and common cloves can prove beneficial. But, these
should be referred to your doctor for advice before you even consider buying or using any. Some people promote herbal preparations that contain substances like olive leaf extract, pumpkin seeds, garlic, and goldenseal for cleaning away parasites.  But, none of them are proven to work. You should always consult your local doctor before even considering using any such preparation.


Liver Flush
A liver flush or a liver cleanse is intended to clean your gallbladder. It is claimed to help remove stones from the gallbladder. Some people claim that liver cleansing can prove beneficial to some degree with people that have ailments like eczema, acne, allergies, asthma, candida infections, gallstones, food intolerances and constant tiredness.

After Your Colon Cleanse

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:51 PM

Side effects of colon cleansing may include temporary weakness, fatigue, and muscle aches, bloating, acne, and bad breath.

Occasionally, it could cause diarrhea for some time.

Rest and relax after a colon cleanse. It helps you overcome all side effects.

Eat light foods like broths and stews. Refrain from eating heavy foods, as it increases pressure on your colon and could lead to digestive problems. Drink the amount of water recommended by your doctor and specialist during and after a colon cleanse. This may help you overcome headaches and tiredness.

Check whether your doctor recommends that you take Vitamin C supplements. Some people claim that it may boost your immune system and that Vitamin C is easily absorbed into your body. A better way to get the necessary amount and type of Vitamin C or any other additive is when it is part of the food which you normally consume rather than as a supplement which may contain ingredients that just add to the waste your colon needs to remove.

If your doctor approves, you might follow up a colon cleanse with a detox bath and a few simple exercises. This is claimed by some to help remove toxins through your skin.

Colonic Irrigation Tips

Written by Science Knowledge on 8:41 PM

Colonic irrigation involves flushing of the bowels with water in different amounts, pressures, and temperatures. A normal colonic irrigation process involves the passing of water under high-pressure through one tube and removing all accumulated fecal debris through another tube. The entire process could last an hour.

Check all colonic irrigation equipment thoroughly before use for any possible infections and contaminations through previous clearing of colon bacteria.

Adhere strictly to the recommended quantity of water put into your system during a colonic irrigation. Excess water can cause severe electrolyte imbalances in the blood. This might lead to fluid in the lungs, heart failure, vomiting, abnormal heartbeats, nausea or coma.

Do not undergo too many colonic irrigation treatment sessions. There can be risks of breaking the bowel wall, which could be fatal.

Only do a colonic irrigation with the help and personal supervision of an experienced, qualified colonic therapist.

Colonic irrigation cannot treat serious ailments of the colon. It is only a way to help to clean your colon and is most useful as a prelude to other medical procedures.

Always follow the suggestions and advice of your doctor or specialist before deciding on colonic irrigation.

Avoid colonic irrigation if you suffer from any disease, especially ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, Crohn's disease, tumors in the colon or rectum, or internal or severe hemorrhoids Pregnant women should never have colonic irrigation.

Colon Cleansing Recipes

Written by Science Knowledge on 6:54 AM

Colon cleansing can be an effective way of removing harmful toxins from your body. It can make you feel better and be healthier. These are some suggestions which I’ve found about recipes which may help to reduce any digestive problems. You should check anything you want to try with your doctor before using it.


Juices: You can make a variety of juices using herbs and raw and fresh vegetables like carrots, radishes, beets, celery, parsley, ginger, dandelions, cayenne, garlic, wheat grass, and others. Some of these herbs may contain substances that can have a negative effect on particular people. Always check first with your doctor. Also, check that the items have not been sprayed with any harmful preparation or possibly fouled by passing animals. Drinking these juices freshly squeezed helps retain the most beneficial enzymes, which might get lost in cooking. However, since juicing proves very time-consuming, many prefer to make juices for three to four days at one time. Preserve the juices in sealed jars and minimize the amount of air in each jar. This helps to keep the juice better. When preparing for and also after your colon cleanse, maintain your water intake.


Bentonite clay: This is edible clay with many strong binding powers. Normally, colon cleansers with bentonite clay are combined with psyllium husk and juice or water. This colon-cleansing recipe binds with the residual matter along the colon walls and helps expel more accumulated fecal material. While on this colon cleanse recipe, you may be advised to eat raw fruits and vegetables and drink sufficient water.


Raw egg yolks: Eating egg yolks may help you. Although you may find it difficult to eat them initially, you can start by having few teaspoons. Otherwise, you can mix the raw egg yolks in milk or vegetable juice and drink it. Otherwise, you can spread it on raw salad. Make a salad of red onion
slices and fresh cucumber and spread little raw egg yolk on it. Add a little salt, a spoon of apple cider vinegar, three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and a tablespoon of honey.

Foods that may Help your Colon Cleanse

Probiotic: A colon cleanse cleans your colon of both harmful and good bacteria. Good bacteria help in better digestion and maintain floral balance.

Probiotics may help you to restore your supply of healthy bacteria. Raw egg yolks: While they are not advised for everyone, they are nutritious and contain some essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. You can mix a raw egg yolk in a glass of vegetable or fruit juice or you can have it as a
salad dressing. If you have never had any raw egg yolks, you can start by having a teaspoon on the first day. Then, gradually, you can increase the quantity. This could help your system to get adjusted to it.

Healthy Oils: Your body requires fatty acids and essential oils to maintain the hormonal balance. the quality of your skin and for lubrication of body parts. Essential oil supplements include fish oil, oregano oil, olive oil, coconut oil, cod liver oil, wheat germ oil, and others. Each type of oil has its own benefits. Wheat germ oil contains vitamin E while fish oil has Omega-3 fatty acids. Of course, the best way to get these benefits is through regular food which you consume as part of your diet.

Kefir and other fermented Foods: Fermented foods may help some people to restore the good bacteria within their intestines. Kefir is claimed by some people to be a good natural option. Other people promote fermented sauerkraut which, they say, is also a good probiotic with a lot of good bacteria.

Vitamin C supplement: Colon cleansing often makes you feel tired and sluggish. You may feel a little disoriented although temporarily. Some promoters claim that taking vitamin C supplements can help you overcome these feelings.

Yeast Flakes: This is claimed to contain B-vitamins and to be very nutritious. It contains minerals. Some people have a scoop of yeast flakes with a glass of fruit juice.

Fibrous Foods: These foods are an essential ingredient of every person’s diet. Fiber helps to transport food inside your body and reduces the amount of waste that might remain in the gut or accumulate to form deposits.

Water: You should drink sufficient water at all times. The level of water in your body is important while undergoing a colon cleanse. Water keeps your body hydrated. Among other things, it helps in the easy movement of food through your digestive organs and reduces any accumulation.

Exercises: While on a colon cleansing diet, follow a regular pattern of exercise so that you have regular body movements. Your exercise regimen could include regular walking sessions and a few minutes of jogging.

Essential Precautions BEFORE Using Natural Colon Cleansers

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:49 PM

Herbal supplements are fairly popular as a natural colon cleanse. But, you should always check any preparation before you buy or start using them.

Educate yourself on the available herbal supplements before purchasing them. Always consult your doctor before you start on a herbal colon cleanse.

Next, you should check on the list of ingredients. The F.D.A. does not have the authority to approve herbal supplements and therefore consumer protection is less.

Some herbal supplements have a ‘USP Dietary Supplement Verified’ seal. This sort of seal asserts that the supplement may be free of environmental contaminants like lead, mercury, or drugs. But, you cannot blindly assume all herbal products to be safe for use.

You should not buy herbal supplements or any medicinal product from outside your country. There have been instances of toxic substances and incorrect ingredients and levels of active ingredients in some of them. Mistakes like this can cause injury or even death. Some herbal supplements can cause some side effects if taken with other medicines. You should check with your doctor for possible reactions and never buy or use anything until you are completely satisfied.

Herbal supplements can affect the success of surgery. Some might reduce the effectiveness of anesthetics and could cause disturbances with your blood pressure and even cause serious bleeding. Herbal supplements should not be used for children below the age of eighteen or elderly people over the age of sixty-five except under careful medical supervision.

Normally, if you are on heart medications, blood thinners, diabetes medications, liver medications, blood pressure medications, or Monoamine  Oxidase inhibitors, you should not start on any herbal supplements.

Herbs like Ginseng, Dong quai, Black cohosh, Ginger, Ephedra, Ginkgo, Feverfew, Garlic, Kava, Milk thistle, St. John's Wort, Scotch broom and Goldenseal may have serious effects on people, whether or not they are taking any medicines or have known medical conditions. They also may conflict with the prescription medications and drugs.

Different Natural Remedies for a Colon Cleanse

Written by Science Knowledge on 5:23 PM

Various herbs like Indian gooseberry, hoodia, garcinia, eclipta, Terminalia and chebula are claimed by some people to sometimes help to clean your intestines. Various products may include a single herb or a concoction of various herbs together.

Herbs like Terminalia chebula or triphala are claimed to be useful for some people to help with colon cleansing. Fibrous foods may act, in part, as natural colon cleansers. Fibers contain lot of roughage. They may bind the fats in the intestines and help to expel more of them with your feces.

Fiber-rich foods may induce peristaltic movements within the intestine. This can help to ease expulsion of some waste materials with less strain. Fibrous foods need sufficient water available within your system to bind with the waste.

Drinking some water may sometimes help you overcome less severe constipation problems. Water helps in easy flushing of toxins from your body. Drinking lukewarm water is claimed by some people to have more effect than drinking chilled or cold water.

Simple and commonly available herbs like ginger, garlic, black pepper, cumin seeds, and cinnamon are claimed by some people to sometimes help clear your intestines and even reduce the level of parasites in your system. Some people can combine these herbs with fresh fruit juice or dark green leafy vegetables. They say that this may help produce clean and thorough  bowel movements.
Colon disorders may sometimes be due in some part to problems of indigestion.

Herbs like coriander leaves, cinnamon, asafetida, cumin seeds, garlic, and ginger are claimed by some people to contain natural enzymes which may help in the proper digestion of food and cleansing of the colon naturally. Some people suggest that colon problems which may be due to parasite or worm infestations may sometimes be helped by using preparations which contain herbs like Butea superba, Embilica ribes, and Piper longum. These herbs are available as a single herb or in a pill form containing many herbs in a specific formula or blend.

Some people consume them with a glass of lukewarm water. I don’t know of any reliable, independently reviewed tests which tend to confirm any of these claims, so always consult your doctor for access to the latest research and recommendations.

Some people claim that substances like natural citric acid, ozonated magnesium oxides, organic germanium, and probiotics may help with colon cleansing. Other herbs like aloe leaf, barberry root, rhubarb root, buckthorn bark, aloe leaf, mint, Yebra mate, black radish root and Echinacea have also been promoted at some time as possible aids to good bowel cleansing herbs. But, I could not find any independently verified test results.

Psyllium husk or seeds, cascara sagrada or flax seeds, slippery elm, and liver stimulative herbs have also been suggested by some to help with a colon cleanse. Of these, the most commonly used herb is psyllium. This is a natural fiber which absorbs lots of water. It is also water-soluble. This fiber increases in volume absorbing water and causes the colon to expand which may help in the easy removal of toxins and mucous from the colon. Psyllium is claimed to encourage growth of healthy intestinal bacteria which might help in regulating bowel movements.

You may be advised to consume some water with your psyllium dosage. It might take up to two weeks for results. Bentonite clay is edible clay and acts as a laxative. This clay absorbs water and is said to help form a gel-like substance which is claimed to bind some of the toxic substances in the colon and helps to push them out smoothly and easily.

Wheat bran, apple pectin, and oat bran are dietary fibers. Wheat bran is insoluble while the other two are soluble. These fibrous foods are claimed to sometimes help some people clean their colon and may also assist in the lowering of blood cholesterol levels.

It may be worthwhile for some people to include a few probiotics in their diet to help replenish the stock of friendly bacteria lost during a colon cleanse or while they have been on a low quality diet.

About Me

In its broadest sense, science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") refers to any systematic knowledge or practice. In its more usual restricted sense, science refers to a system of acquiring knowledge based on scientific method, as well as to the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.

Fields of science are commonly classified along two major lines: natural sciences, which study natural phenomena (including biological life), and social sciences, which study human behavior and societies. These groupings are empirical sciences, which means the knowledge must be based on observable phenomena and capable of being experimented for its validity by other researchers working under the same conditions.
