This is Stacey Licht from Transformation Thrive, and I'm going to tell you about the health benefits of doing a colon cleanse. The first health benefit of doing a colon cleanse is that it will help you to shed excess weight. The average person has between seven to ten pounds of old fecal matter in their colon and that's even if they go every day which often isn't the case. The accumulated waste in your colon is the perfect breeding ground for bad bacteria, yeast, viruses and fungi and getting a colon cleanse gets rid of these pathogens and it also ensures that they don't come back. Having a colon cleanse makes the digestive system more effective. A clean colon allows undigested waste and toxins to pass easily through your system. Also, having a colon cleanse promotes regularity and prevents constipation. Another health benefit of a colon cleanse is that it helps to open up the detoxification pathways and eliminate toxins. When your colon is blocked, often the toxins that need to be eliminated get reabsorbed back into your bloodstream and this causes many different health issues. When you get a colon cleanse and eliminate these toxins, you often experience better energy, better sleep and an overall feeling of health and well-being. It also decreases your risk of colon cancer and increases fertility. Lastly another health benefit of a colon cleanse, is that it helps to maintain pH balance. The foods that tend to get blocked in your colon are acid forming often from high protein diets that lack enough fiber.
