Colon cleasing can be performed in a number of ways. However, there are certain ways to cleanse a colon to increase its effectiveness. First of all, you should eliminate or severely limit the amount of sugar and gluten in your system, especially if you are doing a colon clease because of candida albicans. Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that resides naturally in your body. Sometimes, this fungus can overproduce and cause many adverse symptoms such as migraines, yeast infections, gastritis and even autoimmune diseases (i.e. fibromyaliga). If you have candida overgrowth, eliminating sugar and gluten will help control the production of candida. Otherwise, it will be hard to get rid of excess candida as candida feeds on sugar and yeast.
Secondly, eat lots of vegetables as they contain digestive enzymes which can kill candida. Juicing or drinking the juices of raw vegetables ensures that you are getting the enzymes. Some of the enzymes can be lost in the cooking processed in the case of frozen or canned vegetables. Vegetables create phagocytosis in the body. This is where white blood cells eliminate unbalanced red blood cells (ones that contain fungus, toxins and parasites) and eliminate them.
Though colon cleases can be done with herbs, spices and certain foods, it will save you time if you purchase a colon cleasing kit from the health food store. These kits have a mixture of these foods, spices and herbs that will help eliminate candida, toxins and parasites from your body. You will mix either a powder or syrup in water or your favorite beverage and drink the mixture each day. A typical colon cleansing program lasts about one month. Your other option is undergo colonic irrigation. This is the process of cleansing your colon with ozonated water. The treatments are usually administered by a colon hydrotherapist at an office location. However, there are home kits available that usually run about $300. The actual sessions will last about 40 minutes. During this time, you will keep the water constantly running through all three sections of your large intestines: Descending, transverse and ascending. If your symptoms are severe, you may be doing colonic irrigation several times per week for several months.
Also, while colon cleasing with your method of choice, you should take probiotics. These are “friendly” bacteria that can replenish the natural bacteria in your colon, which are usually eroded during a candida albicans outbreak.
