How to know if You Need a Colon Cleanse

February 11, 2008 by · 9 Comments 

No matter where I turn the message is there:

The foundation of health begins in our digestive system.

For me the idea that a lot of our undigested food gets stuck in our intestines is revolting. Our intestine gets thicker and thicker while the canal where the food passes gets smaller and smaller.

But how can I know just how good or bad MY digestive system is working?

It is very easy. Chances are fair that you have all you need at home and can get started in about 30 sec. Basically as soon as you’ve finished reading this post.

Simply do this:

Grab a handful of shelled sunflower seeds and swallow them with as little chewing as possible.

Now all you have to do is look out for when then seeds come out in the other end.

If the seeds show up in up to 12 hours you’re in pretty good shape. But if it is more maybe even several days. Well, then you know you need to do something about it.

Remember to keep looking for a couple of days because it might be that some show up after 12 hours but that some take several days to pass.

Sounds pretty scary. Does this mean that we ALWAYS have to watch out with EVERYTHING we eat?

Of course not. I want to live a long healthy life and I’m really conscious about what I eat but still I’m only human.

I believe in the 80 / 20 rule.

If you eat healthy 80 percent of the time you can eat unhealthy the other 20. Read more

I am one of those people who gain around the waist first. I’m allways trying to find new fun ways to trim my waistline. Therefore I’d like to share this great exercise that helps your body and…trims your waistline.

I really like Yoga. It gives you strength, flexibility and peace of mind. Ever since I started working (spending a lot of time in front of the computer) I’ve had problems with back ache. For long periods I could not do any workout since I had too much pain. This was until I found Yoga.
