With colon cancer rapidly becoming one of the main health problems affecting many older Americans, many people are now taking colon cleansing and regularity much more seriously.
The modern American’s diet rich in refined and processed foods and lacking in adequate amounts of roughage has led to a constipated nation stewing in their own toxins. A compacted colon prevents the body from properly eliminating toxins and wastes, which leads to cancer as well as bad breath, body odor and irritable bowels.
A person with a healthy colon should have regular bowel movements at least once, if not twice a day. The stools should pass quickly with minimal effort on your part and if you end up reading a entire magazine before you are done, you might want to consider colon cleansing to help achieve a healthier colon.
One way to cleanse the colon is to get an enema, but lets face it, an enema is just not something that everyone is willing to do. Many medical professionals are now suggesting that people try using an Aloe Vera gel cleanser to help naturally wash out the bowels and maintain a healthy digestive system.
The use of Aloe Vera as a bodily cleanser is not a new thing that modern science has just discovered. In fact, Aloe Vera has been used for centuries for this exact purpose, even being described in Ancient Sumerian and Egyptian texts. The gel of the Aloe Vera plant contains polysaccharides, which are long chain sugars that help fight bacteria within the abdominal wall and help repair the tissues of the colon. Aloe Vera is also really high in natural fibers, which helps regulate the system and encourage healthy bowel movements. The vitamins and minerals within Aloe Vera also help eliminate the gunk that sticks to the walls of the intestine encouraging further waste elimination. The soothing compounds within the Aloe Vera gel have also been proven to help relieve irritable bowel syndrome and indigestion.
Many Americans are now turning to Aloe Vera Gel as a safe and natural way to cleanse a colon. The side effects are usually minimal since the plant does not seem to contain anything remotely bad in it and the results are usually favorable. Many nature based health food companies now have Aloe Vera gel capsules available specifically for colon cleansing available at your local health food store. However, it is important to be a savvy buyer and to read up on each company to make sure that they are providing a safe and effective product. Many people also keep a live Aloe Vera plant around their homes, harvesting the inner gel themselves to aid in colon cleansing and other health issues.
As people get older, they began to realize the importance of “being regular” and are willing to try almost anything to maintain a healthy colon. A diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables helps achieve this, but needs to be started sooner rather than later in life in order to be completely effective. Self-enemas are certainly effective but are rather hard to do right on a regular basis. Using Aloe Vera gel to cleanse and repair your system is perhaps the safest and gentlest way to go about keeping your colon healthy and happy.
