This homemade colon cleanse is based on the tried and true psyllium and bentonite shake.
In a P&B shake, psyllium is the bulking agent that facilitates waste removal while bentonite, a natural clay, absorbs toxins. This recipe then adds a natural laxative tea to "agitate" the colon and help loosen old waste.
The psyllium and natural laxative tea in this recipe are common to many colon cleanse products.
The main difference between this recipe and a product is the lack of predictability. You may achieve results the first week, or it could take more than a month depending on your health and how many shakes you drink each day.
For each P&B shake, mix the psyllium and bentonite with 8 ounces water and drink immediately on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 1 hour after meals. Medications should be taken 1-3 hours before or after. Check with your doctor or pharmacist, because medications vary in how quickly they are released.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Then each night before bed, enjoy a cup of natural laxative tea.
Begin with one shake a day. If needed, gradually increase the number of shakes up to five a day. Be patient and listen to your body. It may take several weeks before you see mucoid plaque. Continue the cleanse up to six months.
Psyllium comes from the herb Planto ovago, harvested mainly in India. Rich in soluble fiber, psyllium is often used as a natural laxative on its own or as the active ingredient in fiber-related foods and products. In clinical studies, psyllium has been shown to modestly reduce blood cholesterol levels. It is also a natural stabilizer used in many soups, condiments, and cosmetic creams on the market today.
Bentonite, also known as montmorillonite, has been prized for centuries around the world as a natural detoxifying and healing agent. This mineral-rich liquid clay safely absorbs and binds toxins, including pathogenic viruses, pesticides, and herbicides. The bentonite leaves the body undigested, taking these undesirables with it, thus cleansing the body and promoting healing from a variety of ailments. More about bentonite detox.
