3 min readNobody on this earth, in all sincerity, wants to do an enema. I repeat: nobody wants a shove water up his/her you-know-what. If you’re looking for a colon cleanse, I’ll bet on the house you fit in with this category. Luckily, colon cleanses come in all shapes a sizes, but most of them aren’t gentle. They’re usually pretty rough on your body.

My Gentle Cleanse: Bowel relief with a gentle touch.If you’re new to colon cleansing, WELCOME! You may need to catch up, so here are plenty of useful sources for colon cleansing: How Your Colon Works The Best Colon Cleansing Methods How Colon Cleansing Helps the Skin Great. You’re still here, so I assume you’re an expert at colon cleansing :). My Gentle Cleanse, the product in the image below, is the product I’m going to be talking about. In fact, it’s probably the most gentle cleanse available, and it’s 100% natural. Normally, colon cleanses work by inducing your body to release its contents–to “flush” your colon out in hyperspeed, kind of like when you eat Indian food and you know you can’t handle the spice. But My Gentle Cleanse works a bit differently: it works alongside your body to help it function better. Technically, it helps your body’s peristaltic actions perform more smoothly by feeding your body helpful, natural herbs. (If you need a reminder, peristalsis is the wave-like movements your bowels perform to push items toward the colon–kind of like doing the worm.)
The Ingredients in the CleanseThese herbs I’m talking about are, of course, 100% natural. They wouldn’t be called herbs otherwise! Cascara Sagrada, a powerful herb that targets the peristaltic action of the colon. Senna Leaf, a leaf that helps in the gentle alleviation of occasional constipation. Fennel Seed, a seed with antioxidant capacities, which can help reduce bloating and flatulence. Dandelion, a widespread plant that helps contribute to digestive health. Aloe Vera, a famous [and miraculous] plant that helps as a soothing aid in occasional constipation. Because–as I’m sure you know by now–that your body craves natural ingredients. What happens when you feed it meat, potatoes, and Twinkies non-stop? Diarrhea, loss of energy, fatigue, poor skin, etc. We, you and I, know damn well that to treat our colon gently, we also need to drink plenty of water.
Doing a colon cleanse without enough water is like descending a waterslide without water: it will be a raw ass-burn.
You know how to treat your body gently:
- Eat fruits and vegetables.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Exercise moderately.
