Everything that is consumed goes into the digestive system. During a long time, toxins and waste will build up and will lead to numerous health issues like constipation, diarrhea, irregular bowel movements, weakened immune system, and low energy.

To fix all these problems, improve bowel function, and achieve greater health and well-being, you should start a colon cleanse treatment. It is also the first step to losing weight and starting a weight loss program or diet. Many dietitians or health experts recommend this treatment for a weight loss.

Actually, Elvis died with a colon jam packed with the effects of red meat and other unhealthy foods (“goo and glue” diet). The use of laxatives and other drugs did not help either.

The size of the colon is approximately five to seven feet in length and about two inches in diameter. But, Elvis’s colon was at least three and a half inches in diameter in some places and as large as four and a half to five inches in diameter in others. The mega colon was jam-packed from the base of the descending colon all the way up and halfway across the transverse colon. It was filled with white, chalklike fecal material, and in a case he used cleansing or detoxifying method he would still have been alive.

Two amazing ingredients which help with the cleanse of the colon and will improve health are:


As per Wikipedia, it is a fermented drink that consists of with milk and “grains” that are beneficial living organisms. Additionally, it is a complete source of protein with many essential amino acids, minerals, and valuable B vitamins.

According to Healthy and Natural World: “What’s good about kefir is that it contains several major strains of friendly bacteria and beneficial yeasts. These probiotic organisms help to cleanse the intestine, help balance the intestinal flora and destroy pathogens such as E-coli and parasites. Kefir helps to restore your digestive system, relieves inflammatory bowel disease and helps to boost your immune system.”

Kefir is safe to use for people intolerant of lactose. It can consist of fruit juice, coconut water, coconut milk, rice milk, almond milk, and more.


Flaxseed is excellent for cleansing, because it absorbs water and expands as it passes through the colon. Flaxseed works like a scrub brush, because it can scrub toxins and waste away. It is high in alpha-linolenic acid, which is a form of omega-3 fatty acids. ALA possesses anti-inflammatory properties and can ease irritable bowel syndrome.

Flaxseeds are difficult to digest whole, so you should grind them in a coffee grinder before use. But, keep in mind that they can stay fresh for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Flaxseed oil is healthy, but not appropriate for a colon cleanse. The best way for toxins and waste removal from the digestive system is grounded flaxseed.

Using kefir and flaxseed together

Important: Sometimes it would be difficult to digest fermented food, because some people are not used to it. It is best to start with small amounts and then gradually increase the amount. It is very important to use this for a couple of days a week, for two weeks. This will allow the body to build its immunity.

This is the suggested method of consumption from Healthy and Natural World: “Start with one tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with about a quarter or third glass of kefir before breakfast and then again before bed (some people find it helps first to try kefir with meals, such as a little amount with breakfast). You need to make sure to drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Do it for a week or so and then skip for few days here and there to give your body a break. You can use it as an ongoing maintenance or do it periodically.”

It is important to do the colon cleanse naturally and with great caution, because there is a bunch of good bacteria in the digestive tract. Performing an unnatural or quick colon cleanse will remove or destroy this bacteria.
