“The part can never be well unless the whole is well.” ~Plato
For your body to be healthy, it’s vital that you know how to keep a colon healthy. The colon has 4 parts: ascending, transverse, descending and sigmoid colon. It absorbs water, salt and some nutrients. The solid waste matter that is left is then passed out of the body.
If the colon is functioning correctly, nutrients will be properly absorbed and toxins will be voided with the stools, leaving no compacted waste behind.
Here are 3 ways to keep your colon healthy:
- Eat Correctly
If you follow a healthy nutrition plan your colon should function optimally. The best diet would be made up of organic foods: vegetables and fruits, beans, whole grains and fiber. If you are going to eat meat, it would be best to choose organic, free-range meat.
2. Get some exercise!
It’s important to engage in physical activity to keep your digestive system in good working order. An inactive body results in a sluggish system that will take much longer to remove toxic waste from the body.
3. Keep yourself hydrated
The healthiest way to keep hydrated is to drink purified water that has also been oxygenated.
Water helps to flush toxins out of the system and the oxygen assists in this. It also helps the colon to process soft fecal matter which would otherwise be difficult to void if it were dry.
How to Keep a Colon Healthy With a Colon Cleanse
There are times when even people who are meticulous about their health would have a spell of irregularity because of stress, travel, sleep changes and so on. All these factors can impact the digestion. A periodic colon cleanse with Oxy-Powder can help clear any waste matter that has become trapped.
However, try to avoid conventional purgatives. Many of them contain harsh herbal additives that can cause inflammation. Furthermore, laxatives that contain psyllium present serious health risks. Rather go for a safe and gentle, oxygen-based colon cleanser such as Oxy-Powder.
