Get your greens every single day.
Eat nuts: Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, and chestnuts. Avoid peanuts and cashews as much as possible. They aren't as healthy as the aforementioned ones.
Whole grains: Choose barley and rye. Consider eating some Kichadi and legumes for lunch. Wild rice is excellent too, and superior to white rice.
A high-fiber diet helps toxins, residue waste, and fecal matter sweep out of the colon. It prevents constipation by stimulating peristalsis, and making our bowels less hard.
Fiber is divided into two types: soluble and insoluble.
Soluble fiber helps increase the amount of good bacteria, which helps rid us of bad bacteria such as E.Coli.
- Oats, rice, and barley.
- Legumes, beans, and peas.
- Citrus, and apples
Insoluble Fiber prevents constipation.
- Whole wheat, rye, brown rice, barley.
- cabbage, beets
- brussel sprouts
Everyone needs between 22-36 grams of fiber a day. Most people unfortunately don't even come close to reaching this amount. Ideally, we should be getting at least 6 servings of veggies and fruits, and 6+ of whole grains. If you're not getting enough fiber, consider taking fiber supplements. However, it is better to get it from whole foods.
Green foods contains a ton of chlorophyll, which is great for the colon. Chlorophyll helps smoothens any damaged tissue in the GI tract. With chlorophyll, our body gets more oxygens and releases more toxins.
-wheatgrass, spirulina, algae
-Perfect Food supplement Fermented Foods
Many of our diets lack fermented foods. We need these foods to maintain the balance of bacteria in our GI tract. They help keep toxic substances in check, reduce the number of bad bacteria, and provide energy to the colon.
-Kefir (preferably homemade)
Ideally we should drink up to ten cups of water a day. Whenever I feel sick, or dizzy I immediately reach out for my bottle of water. There's something called the Water Cure, for those who are interested about learning the benefits of water.
Do not consume alcohol, or substitute water with black tea or coffee. If you want, you can add a bit of lemon, or sea salt to the water for some electrolytes.
So once again, here is the type of diet you should follow after colon cleansing:
- Eat foods high in fiber such as whole gains. Make sure you eat soluble and unsoluble fiber.
- Eat foods high in chlorophyll such as wheatgrass, and algage.
- Include fermented foods in your diet such as kefir.
- Drink up to 10 glasses of water a day and avoid coffee and black tea.
