Eating boiled vegetables not only cleanses the colon but also helps you slim down. Accumulation of waste deposits in the colon for a long time can cause growth of bacteria as well as fungal infections. Avoiding colon cleansing can lead to collapsed colon, hemorrhoids, diverticullis and asthma. If you want to solve your problem with a compacted colon, better learn how to cleanse the colon with vegetables with the following tips to help you with.
Tip #1: Know how vegetables will work for colon cleansing.
It is possible to do a complete colon cleanse through modifying your diet by eating more fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Boiled vegetables have a lot of nutrients and small amounts of fats and can be used as the main ingredient of a detox diet. A dinner of pure vegetables should be consumed 2-3 hours before sleeping.
Tip #2: Combine fruits with vegetables.
You can stock enzyme rich colon cleansing fruits such as mangoes, kiwi, papaya and pineapples. Such fruits are full of enzymes which make the digestive tract perform well. Eating fruits for breakfast is a good beginning to keep moving for the whole day.
Tip #3: Buy fresh vegetables
Confirm the freshness of these vegetables before purchasing them to avoid food poisoning. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and if possible make juice from them. This way, it can be easier to consume large amounts of vegetables and it is also easier for the body to absorb the nutrients and enzymes. You should start drinking 4 oz. at a time and slowly build up to 8-10 oz. Your stomach will feel if you are ready to increase the amount of vegetable juice you drink.
Tip #4: Make a vegetable juice.
In making vegetable juice, boil the vegetables and use a blender to blend them and the water they were cooked in. By making the vegetables into soup or juice you can still use the water where you boiled it and still has the essential nutrients of the vegetables.
Tip #5: Supplement your vegetable intake.
Eat organic whole grains and drink plenty of water. These whole grains like quinoa, millet and aramanths contain fiber. This fiber adds the necessary bulk to clean “hard to reach” parts of the colon. Drinking a lot of water helps push the fiber along.
Tip #6: Avoid animal protein and processed foods.
Legumes and soy are god sources of protein. Avoid consuming protein from animal sources while on a vegetable colon cleanse. But if you have difficult time giving up meat during the colon cleanse, be sure to limit your meat to lean sources such as fish, chicken, and turkey. Likewise, avoid processed foods. These kind of foods lack nutrition and they are high in sugar and salt. These are the same toxins a vegetable cleanse aims to get rid of.
At the start of the vegetable colon cleanse, you may feel gassy. A gradual increase in the amount of juice and vegetables you eat will minimize gas. Be ready for the potential side effects as the elimination of the toxins can cause ill effects which ranges from the feeling of getting tired to flu symptoms. The intensity and duration of the symptoms depends on the amount of toxins in your system and how fast they are released. You can drink herbal teas or light teas without milk, cream and sugar 2-3 times a day during the colon cleansing procedure.
