Many health experts agree that certain illnesses can begin in the digestive system, which consists of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine (colon).

Sadly, too people make the common mistake of confusing the stomach with the intestines, and often think they need a stomach cleanser, when they feel digestive problems.

However, the stomach does not accumulate food like the intestine because food is rarely in the stomach for more than two hours before it moves on to the small intestine. The main problems that affect the stomach are gastritis and peptic ulcers which tend to cause heartburn and indigestion.

The real problem lies in the intestine because food can accumulate in it for months and even years, slowly decomposing and causing self-intoxication, which means the toxins and waste in the intestine are absorbed by the body and go into the blood stream where they spread to the rest of the body and cause problems.

The intestine is an organ that is similar to a hose and can measure up to six feet. It is estimated that a human colon can accumulate as much as seventy pounds of fecal matter.

Intestinal cleansers are very important if you want to enjoy wellbeing as an intestine full of waste can lead to constipation, hemorrhoids, bad breath, head aches, chronic fatigue, allergies, blemished skin, acne, hair loss, menstrual problems, cellulite, colitis, colon cancer and much more.

It is highly recommended that you do an intestinal cleanser with every change of season meaning, every four months. The main reason we must clean our digestive system regularly is to avoid having the food we eat become adhered to our intestine walls.

Remember that not everything that you’re eating is leaving your body. If you eat three meals a day, you should be having three bowel movements a day, and who does?

An individual who eats three meals per day and only has one bowel movement accumulates 720 meals each year!

The foods that tend to accumulate and stick to the intestine walls the most are rice, flour, sugar, food coloring, pesticides and red meat.

Eating a salad with every meal, drinking at least 2 liters of water each day and eating two fruits per day is a good way of avoiding an accumulation of these foods in the intestine on a day to day basis.

It is very important that you don’t confuse an intestinal cleanser with a laxative, as laxatives force your digestive system to have a bowel movement but do not cleanse it. In fact, most laxatives can irritate the stomach and generally do more harm than good. Intestinal cleansers on the other hand, work gently over the course of several days or weeks, cleansing and repairing the entire digestive tract. Once you’ve finished an intestinal cleanser, the body continues to have regular bowel movements after each meal.

    Thanks for the info. What do you recommend to cleanse the intestine?

      Hello Becky,
      I would try to do a five day vegan diet. Cut out all flour, meat & dairy from your diet for at least five days and eat tons of whole grains (kamut, quinoa, brown rice, oats), lots of veggies (especially asparragus, kale, beets, zucchinni, spinach), lots of fruits (especially cantaloupe, melon & berries) and drink lots of water.
      Best of luck!

  3. What do I need to do to clean my intestinal walls? Sometimes I last up to 5 days without having a bowel movement. I drink lots of water and I do eat fruits like a banana, apple and kiwi I also eat salads like every other day. What if that does not work to have a bowel movement at least once a day.
