First clean out the gastrointestinal tract—which begins from your mouth to the esophagus, stomach, small intestines, colon, and to the bowels.
Due to years of poor eating habits and a diet lacking in fiber, the intestine walls can clog up with undigested food and waste material. Undigested food rot and formed encrustations on the intestine wall and absorption from the intestines become inefficient.
If this goes untreated, more serious health problems can follow as the intestinal functions are compromised. Incidentally, the odor from these rotting encrustations is one of the causes of bad breath. SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) is also a common problem and needs to be addressed before the infestation gets out of control.
For this reason, always START a detox program with a gastrointestinal cleanse. Unclogging the intestines before you start, will improve the absorption of nutrients as you work on the other detox organs, and allow the body to more easily expel toxins through the bowels.
Lower Intestine (Colon)
The lower intestine or colon is where feces collect before elimination. A lack of fiber in your diet means that they cannot be excreted at will, they compact in the colon and become even harder to eliminate. As fecal matter rots, bacteria and parasites multiply, producing toxic fumes. This is the beginning of a long list of health problems, that may end in cancer of the colon.
A regular gastrointestinal cleanse will help maintain a clean internal sewage piping system and greatly improve the health of your intestinal tract over time.
Drinking fresh juices and regular juice fasting will also help detoxify the colon, as the juices work like a natural broom, sweeping out the gastrointestinal tract of old fecal matter.
