July 5, 2018; y Briana McDonald- Silver Bulletin (UtopiaSilver.com) Every day our bodies are looking out for us, constantly filtering everything that we come into contact with. We can cleanse ourselves naturally of toxins without having to think about it, however, over a period of time and abuse our bodies can experience a toxin overload. The colon is responsible for the final stage of the digestive process and the absorption of vitamins, salts, nutrients, and water. When the colon is not functioning as it should, it allows toxins to be absorbed into the bloodstream rather than being expelled from the body. This article goes over the top five signs your colon needs to be cleansed and how to do so through homemade recipes and quality supplementation.
Top Signs Your Colon Needs to Be Cleansed
When waste is not effectively eliminated out of your body on a regular basis, toxicity can occur which can lead to an array of health problems. Listed below are the most common warning signs and symptoms of an unhealthy, backed up colon.
Constipation is the inability to defecate and properly eliminate waste. This can happen from lack of nutrients in ones diet, drugs, and stress. The colon goes into a protective mode by producing excess mucus which then binds to waste that comes from refined and processed foods. It will build up along the walls of the bowel and this buildup will eventually narrow the space available for waste to be removed. This is otherwise known as an “impacted colon.” Diarrhea is another form of constipation and is a sign of an unhealthy digestive system. If you experience constipation regularly it is a warning sign that something is not right within your digestive system and a colon cleanse is necessary and will help flush out the excess mucus and allow the natural space for waste to be effectively eliminated.

- Weight Gain
Surgically Removed Constipated Colon
If you’re noticing that you are putting on unwanted pounds or struggle to lose weight despite eating a normal amount of calories, this will also be a sign that you need to cleanse your colon. This means more than likely your body cannot get rid of waste properly causing bloating and weight gain.
If you are still feeling drained even if you’re getting 8 hours or more of sleep this could mean your body is working overtime to get rid of toxins and you will naturally have less energy.
Your diet and your moods are interconnected. In fact neurotransmitters are significantly influenced by the foods you consume. A 2009 study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry examined the association between dietary patterns and depression. There were 3,486 participants who fell into one of two dietary categories. The first was those who consumed a whole food diet, heavily loaded by vegetables, fruits and fish. The other group ate processed foods, sweetened desserts, fried food, processed meat, refined grains and high fat dairy products. After 5 years the participants were assessed. Researchers found that those who stuck to the whole food dietary pattern had lower odds of depression and the group that consumed processed foods was associated with an increased risk for depression.

- Pale Skin and Acne
If your skin looks pale, greasy and spotty, it could be a sign of toxins building up in the body. A colon that is backed up is similar to a septic tank that is overflowing poison throughout your body. When toxins build up to the point that your skin is unable to “breathe” properly you can experience skin issues such as acne. (3)
