The colon helps flush out toxins and waste from our body. It helps keep the bodyís electrolyte balance by absorbing requisite salt (sodium) and water.
While regular bowel movement does help in eliminating waste and toxic materials from the body, it is still important to cleanse the colon regularly to remove trapped toxins that attached themselves to the colon walls.
When the colon is not cleansed thoroughly, the build-up of toxins in the colon walls can trigger health conditions such as diarrhea, constipation, colds, headaches, fatigue, indigestion, joint pain, allergies, memory loss, stress, and vision problems.
Colon cleansing literally means cleaning and removing the trapped toxins from your colon.
There are also organic remedies that you can do at home.
