Homemade Colon Cleanse with Apple, Ginger and Lemon Juice

Many people have chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut, and other problems with the digestive system. Because the colon has the big job of getting rid of waste, it’s important to keep it running smoothly.

Thankfully, there are things you can do to help ease pain that comes with toxins and digestion problems in the body.

A homemade colon cleanse can help flush out some of the toxins in your body that could be adding to your pain, and can naturally soothe constipation. Just plan a day when you do not need to leave your home so that you can get used to the colon cleansing changes in your body and the cleaning of waste, as you start the detox process.

INGREDIENTS:

– ½ cup warm purified water
– ½ tsp sea salt
– ½ cup organic apple juice
– 1 tsp ginger juice
– 2 tbsp lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

Let’s get started making this great homemade cleanse. You will need a tall glass and a spoon. To start, put 3.5 ounces of clean water in a pan. You want to warm the water, not boil it, so that you can drink the water at a safe temperature.

Once it is warm, pour it into your glass. Then, add sea salt and mix it. The sea salt will help let out toxins, pushing waste through the body and boosting digestion.

Now, add the apple juice, ginger juice, and fresh lemon juice, and mix it.

Where do you think the saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ comes from? Well, maybe it’s not just for the colon, but it did come from the idea that whole foods, such as the nutrition- rich apple, brings good health, and a healthy colon brings good health.

In fact, a study shows that those who ate an apple a day had less visits to the doctor, and less prescription medications.

Ginger is great because it lessens bloating while boosting the colon, keeping it free from wastes and bad toxins. And don’t forget about the amazing lemon! Lemon juice helps digestion, detoxification, and is high in vitamin C, making it a great antioxidant.

Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Then have this mixture again just before a light lunch, like steamed vegetables and baked salmon, and again mid- afternoon.
Have 6- 8 glasses of warm water throughout the day. It may be best to slow down the amount of liquids you drink after 5 p.m. so that you don’t wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Using this type of colon cleanse should not be a problem, however, it is always good to check with your doctor before trying anything new, if you are pregnant, have a disease, have allergies, or are taking any prescription medications.

Do not drink this juice if you are diabetic because of the high amount of natural sugar in apple juice.

It’s best to do this for one day, or a week at most.

What if you really can’t go vegan? IBS, Allergies & Limited Food Available

For people in a very difficult situation where eating plant-based isn’t an option yet. You can still choose vegan in all other aspects of your life, and be careful about how and how often you consume animal-based products. Because trying your best will always be better than not trying at all

IBS affects over 11% of the global population, (that’s one in every 9 people you meet!!) so let’s not be embarrassed about it! I want this channel to be a safe, open and kind place for people dealing with IBS. We’re far from alone, so let’s ask questions, share advice and feel better together xx

▽ What are FODMAPs?

The term FODMAP is an acronym, derived from “Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccharides And Polyols”. They are short carbohydrates found in lots of healthy foods, which the bacteria in your intestines will break down, producing gas in the process.

For unclear reasons, some people are particularly sensitive to this and experience painful and embarrassing symptoms such as bloating, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, constipation and fatigue. FODMAP restriction has been found to improve symptoms in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID).

▽ What is a Low-FODMAP Diet?

The Low-FODMAP diet usually involves carefully cutting the down the amount of FODMAPs you consume over a day and at one time for 2-6 weeks until your symptoms resolve or at least become manageable. Then you “re-challenge” each type of FODMAP individually to see how sensitive you are to them. Thankfully most people can tolerate some or all of the FODMAPs at certain levels or combinations.

▽ Is it forever?

NO! From this feedback, you can reintroduce foods in a way that won’t set off your symptoms. Your tolerance will likely improve over time, so you can always retest foods when you feel up to it.

▽ Resources For Vegan Low-FODMAPers

These are some two things I’ve found to be invaluable since starting the low-FODMAP diet.

The first is the official app* from The Monash University. It’s the easiest and most up-to-date way to check what foods are A-okay and how big your portion size can be. Measurements come in grams, as well as “cups”, which is great as a brit!
