In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants I’m going to talk about cleansing diet, in particular a diet the is focused on colon cleansing. Every year in the US millions of people suffer from many health diseases or die because of colon cancer.
On a regular basis all of us are exposed to different environmental pollutants, heavy metals, chemicals, radiation and toxins. Investing on a healthy nutritional diet and a regular cleansing can help to prevent and cure many chronic diseases like cancer. Colon cleansing is one of the effective ways to detoxify the body from harmful chemicals and toxins in our environment. Keep in mind that the typical American diet is filled with saturated fat, sugar and carb. The high volumes of carbohydrates and especially saturated fat cannot be fully processed and digested by the colon therefore the grease and fat can stick to the colon wall. Because colon walls are covered with grease and harmful substances, over a period of time our colon cannot absorb nutrients from foods and detoxify our body.

There are many ways to clean your colon by changing your daily eating habits. Green superfoods high in fiber such as kale, chard, leek, celery and broccoli can help to cleanse our body from accumulation of free radicals and toxins.There are also herbs that can help to cleanse colon such as ginger, cayenne pepper and aloe leaf. Consuming raw foods that are high in fiber and live enzymes can help your liver and cleanse your body. Drinking lots of water mixed with apple cider vinegar and lime can also do wonders for cleansing and detoxifying your body. Exercising, meditation and practicing yoga, especially hot yoga can help to lower the level of bad cholesterol, fat and stress and cleanse the body from accumulation of free radicals and pollutants.
