Crohns Disease Colon Cleanse:

Colon Cleansing and Crohns Disease

Many herbalist and natural remedy specialists feel the best way to help start the healing process from Crohns disease is through the use of colon cleansing.

Colon cleansing is a process which flushes out your entire digestive tract quickly, pulls mucus and parasites from the colon, and helps remove toxic wastes and poisons fast. The faster these things can be removed from your body, the faster your body is able to start healing itself.

Using enema-based colon cleansing solutions also allows you to use herbs in other ways.

Instead of, or sometimes in addition to, ingesting the herbs and remedies by mouth, you add them to the enemas for direct cleansing, bacteria fighting, coating and soothing of the colon and intestinal walls.

Using enemas for healing is a distasteful thought for many people when they first hear about it.

However, since many Crohns disease sufferers may be facing drastic measures such as surgery to remove part of their intestines, this might not be so objectionable as it might have previously been.

Colon cleansing can be accomplished without enemas, however; check out our H&B recommended program here. (Note: we recommend colon cleansing without enemas.)

If you choose to use enemas for colon cleansing, there are several herbal based ones you should try.

  • A garlic enema will kill parasites, pull mucus from the colon, and help fight infections anywhere in the body.
  • Catnip enemas can help soothe the entire digestive system, bring down fevers, and reduce or stop pain.
  • Cayenne enemas can stop internal bleeding of the digestive tract.
  • Slippery elm enemas help coat the inflamed tissues of the intestinal lining, and help relieve diarrhea while starting the healing process.
  • Aloe Vera enemas will also coat the colon walls and start promoting healing.

An alternative way to do a colon cleanse without using enemas is to change your diet, and a third way is to simply take colon cleansing herbs.

Changing your diet to a juice fast for a week or two is usually an excellent way to cleanse your colon and all major organs in your body.

One of the best to use for liver and colon related problems is the lemonade juice fast, but using any type of fruit or vegetable juices is fine for fasting.

Alternatively you can simply use colon cleansing herbs.

Some of these will stimulate bile production in the liver, some will stimulate the intestines and colon to move waste out faster, and some will act as intestinal "scrubs" or "broom" to flush out old, sticky, hardened fecal matter.
