Home Remedies for Colon Cleansing

The colon, a part of the digestive system is responsible for extracting water and salt from the solid wastes prior to release. At times the colon does not function properly and causes a build-up of harmful toxins along the colon walls. This can cause headache, skin allergy, low energy level, vomiting, bloating and so on. If proper precaution is not taken on time then it can even lead to various diseases and illness such as heart diseases, gall bladder stones, asthma, skin allergies, and liver ailments. However, with the help of colon cleansing you can easily get rid of harmful toxins.

There are many treatments available for color cleansing. But the best options for colon cleansing are the natural and simple home remedies which you can easily try at home. At the same time, these natural solutions are safe and do not have side effects.

Here are top 10 home remedies for Colon Cleansing.

Apple Juice

Fresh apple juice is one of the best home treatments for colon cleansing. Regular intake of apple juice encourages bowel movements, breaks down toxins and improves the health of liver as well as the digestive system. Start your day with one glass of unfiltered apple juice and then after half an hour drink one glass of water. Throughout the day follow this routine several times. In between you can also drink one glass of prune juice. Freshly squeezed apple juice should be used to get good results, but if it is not available then you can use organic apple juice. When following this remedy it is advisable to avoid solid foods.

Lemon Juice

Lemon has antioxidant properties and its high vitamin C content is good for the digestive system. Hence for colon cleansing you can try lemon juice. Take the juice of one lemon and add a pinch of sea-salt, little honey and one glass of lukewarm water to it. Mix all the ingredients properly and drink this solution on an empty stomach in the morning. This will help you to enjoy more energy, better bowel movement and better skin condition. During the day time you can add two tablespoon of fresh squeezed lemon juice to one glass of apple juice and drink it three to four times a day. This will thin out the mucous in the bowel.

Water

For colon cleansing, the best thing that you can do is to drink plenty of water. It is essential to drink at least ten to twelve glasses of water in a day. Regular consumption of water will give your body the liquid and lubrication required to flush out the harmful toxins and waste from the body in a very natural manner. Drinking plenty of water will also stimulate the natural peristaltic action and soon the colon will start functioning in a normal manner. Also water is essential to keep your body well hydrated. Along with water you can also drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

Raw Vegetable Juice

For colon cleansing, it is essential to keep away from processed and cooked food for one or two days. Instead of solid food, try to drink fresh vegetable juice several times a day. Vegetable juices contain sugars that can improve the bowel movement. Also the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes present in it will keep your body healthy and well energized. It is advisable not to use readymade vegetable juices as it does not contain the effective enzymes that help your body to break down and remove waste products. You can easily make fresh vegetable juice at home with the help of a juicer or blender.

Fiber Foods

Foods rich in fiber should be consumed in high amount to cleanse the colon of the harmful toxins. Fiber will help to keep the stools soft and improve the bowel movement which ultimately encourages the body to expel waste products. At the same time fiber enriched foods will also help to get rid of any kind of intestinal problems. You can add a lot of fiber into your diet by eating fresh fruits like raspberries, pears and apples, as well as fresh vegetables like artichokes, peas and broccoli. Cereals, whole grains, nuts, beans and seeds also contain a good amount of fiber.

Yogurt

Eating fresh yogurt on a regular basis is a good way to keep the colon healthy. Yogurt will give your body pro-biotic and good bacteria and will get rid of bad bacteria. It also contains a good amount of calcium which discourages the growth of cells lining the colon. You can eat yogurt as it is or add some fresh fruits such as apples, limes, banana and so on to it. Yogurt is good for an infected colon and at the same time it also solves various stomach problems such as indigestion, flatulence, irregular bowel movements and lots more.

Flaxseed

Flaxseed is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and natural fibers and thus adding flaxseed to your diet is a great way to cleanse your colon. Flaxseed will absorb water and expand in the colon, and will assist in removing toxins and mucus as it passes through. You can add grinded flaxseeds to cereal, yogurt, fruit and other healthy foods. For faster result, add one tablespoon of ground flaxseed in a glass of water and have it half an hour before eating your breakfast and before going to bed. Flaxseed will cleanse the colon and will also help to prevent cancer, heart diseases and diabetes.

Sea Salt

Another effective ingredient for colon cleansing is sea salt. Add a tablespoon of sea salt in one glass of drinking water and boil it. Drink this solution warm or cold first thing in the morning, wait for a few minutes and then lie down and massage your stomach down to your colon area in a gentle manner. This will stimulate your bowel movement and help to remove all of the harmful toxins, accumulated fecal matter, regular feces, parasites, and bacteria from the digestive tract. As this solution can cause diarrhea, it is essential to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is known for its detoxification abilities and acts as a laxative and hence it is regarded as an effective colon cleanser. Get some aloe vera leaves and remove the gel from it. Add the juice of one lemon to the aloe vera gel and put the mixture in a blender to get a fine juice. Keep this juice in the refrigerator for two to three hours. Now consume this juice several times a day. The medicinal properties present in aloe vera gel will not only improve the condition of your colon health, but it will also treat other health problems such as headache, skin infection, diarrhea, gastric pain and constipation.

Ginger

Ginger is one of the easily available ingredients that can help to reduce bloating and stimulate the functionality of the colon and keep it free from waste and harmful toxins. You can take ginger in any form such as mashed, juice, or cut pieces for colon cleansing. One good option is to mix honey and water to one teaspoon of ginger juice and then consume it two to three times a day. You can also add ginger to herbal tea. This remedy is not recommended for those who are pregnant.

Blood thining remedies

Salicylates

One type of natural blood thinners are substances that block vitamin K known as salicylates. The most well known of these is aspirin, but many foods, such as preservatives and flavorings, also contain salicylates or aspirin-like substances.

Ginger is known as a warming spice in both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Herbs and spices high in salicylates include:

Curry powder
Cayenne pepper
Ginger
Paprika
Thyme
Cinnamon
Dill
Oregano
Turmeric
Licorice
Peppermint

In Ayurvedic (traditional Indian medicine) many of the above spices are known as “warming spices”. I think this is because by thinning the blood they increase a person’s blood circulation, which in turn speeds up the metabolism and makes a person feel warmer.

Tips for preventing or reducing motion sickness

Breathing

My first line of defense against motion sickness is taking deep breaths. It helps with an upset stomach and reduces dizziness. Breathing slowly and deeply will give me bursts of relief on a short trip and help me relax overall. (It also doubles as a signal to Matt that his driving needs to be more smooth and gentle.)

Focus your eyes

My motion sickness is exacerbated when I look at things whizzing by me at high speeds. It helps to focus on the road ahead, the horizon, or a stationary object in the distance. Keeping my body still and my head facing forward is important so my brain and inner ear can sync up and aren’t so confused.

Peppermint

Although peppermint has never really worked for me, each body is different. You can put a few drops of peppermint essential oil on a handkerchief and wave it in front of your nose while inhaling. Sucking on peppermint candies or drinking a strong cup of peppermint tea is also effective for some.

Ginger – (a.k.a. Zingiber officinale),

It is a fairly common remedy for motion sickness and nausea. It can be taken in many forms to be helpful. Try chewing on ginger candies (make your own!) or even eating ginger cookies. Slowly sipping ginger tea or all natural ginger soda may quell nausea. Ginger tablets or capsules can help, and work best if taken about an hour before traveling. (If you are pregnant or taking blood thinners you should consult your trusted health care provider before taking ginger.)

Other simple hints

If you’re prone to motion sickness, here are some other simple suggestions to consider:

• Avoid reading or writing while in motion. (Yes, it can make for a very long, boring trip but it will help.)
• Listening to music, laying your head back, and cracking a window (or directing a fan on your face if on an airplane) will calm you and keep nausea at bay.
• Always face forward in your seat and avoid turning your head as much as possible.
• Getting behind the wheel is best to prevent motion sickness in a car, but sitting in the front seat or in the middle of the back seat (so you can look ahead at the road) is the next best.
• For a smoother ride, try to get a seat toward the front when traveling by bus, or near the wing on an airplane.

Home Remedies to Combat the Side Effects of Chemo

Chemotherapy can kill cancer, but it can also bring in a slew of side effects including nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, digestive problems and more.

Ginger

Relieves: Nausea and an upset stomach

If your stomach feels unsettled, you’re not alone: Post-treatment nausea and vomiting are reported by up to 70 percent of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. If you’re among the unlucky majority, give ginger a try to soothe your stomach, says Stewart Fleishman, M.D., author of Learn to Live Through Cancer. It can also help treat nausea and diarrhea and can stimulate your appetite by kick-starting digestive juices and saliva. A study of mostly women undergoing chemotherapy found that patients who took a daily ginger supplement suffered significantly less nausea, according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

How-To: One nausea-preventing dose ranges from 250 milligrams to 1 gram of ginger powder mixed with liquid taken multiple times in the day, not to exceed the maximum daily adult dose of 5 grams, according to the American Cancer Society. You can also sip ginger tea, cook with it or try ginger lozenges, says Fleishman.

Peppermint (for Nausea)

Peppermint is a natural stomach soothing herbal remedy. Try a couple drops of peppermint extract in a glass of water to ease stomach discomfort after chemotherapy. This herbal remedy is easier than most for children undergoing chemotherapy.

Burdock (Blood Purifier)

This herbal remedy drives chemotherapy toxins from the body. Chemotherapy fills the body with toxins to kill cancer cells. Unfortunately these toxins have a negative effect on the rest of the human body as well. Burdock causes profuse sweating to drive toxins out of the body.

Sweating (to Release Toxins)

Many toxins are only released from the body through sweat glands. Exercise is essential for this natural remedy. Another good way to induce sweating is with a sauna. If a sauna is not available, try eating hot peppers or running a hot shower while behind closed bathroom doors.

Aloe (Soothe Stomach and Intestines)

Aloe Vera is a natural remedy for sunburns, cuts and scrapes. One of the side effects of chemotherapy is damage to the stomach and intestines. Aloe Vera juice can be purchased from the health food store as a natural drink. This home remedy heals the stomach and intestines of chemotherapy patients.

Omega 3 (Strengthen Immune System)

No natural remedy article is complete without the mention of Omega 3. This amino acid supplement comes in convenient capsule form. It will strengthen an immune system weakened by the side effects of chemotherapy.

Omega 3 is available in vegetarian form as well as the traditional fish oil capsules.

Antioxidants (Strengthen Immune System)

Chemotherapy kills cancer cells. Unfortunately it also kills everything else. This is why Omega 3 and antioxidants are so important as natural remedies for chemotherapy side effects. Antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables fight free radicals and strengthen the immune system.
67. Home Remedy For Gingivitis (Bleeding gums)

The best home remedy to cure gingivitis would be to brush twice regularly. Use herbal toothpaste and herbal mouthwash.

One of the most effective natural remedies to cure gingivitis is to rub the gums with clove oil. There may be burning sensation but it would heal the ailment. Another method would be to chew a piece of clove in the mouth.

Toothpaste containing mint, babool, neem, holy basil would be the best deal to fight gingivitis. Not only do they avoid the spreading of the infection, but also reduce the swelling or inflammation.

Gargling also helps treat gingivitis. Take a glass of lukewarm water and add a pinch of salt to it. Gargle with this concoction, twice a day.
Gargling with triphala concoction is beneficial in curing gingivitis. In a glass of lukewarm water, add a tsp of triphala powder. Gargle with this combination.

Aloe vera proves helpful in treating gingivitis. Rub the aloe vera pulp in the mouth. After rubbing once, gargle with water. Repeat the process a few times.

Make a mixture of baking soda and water. Dab the affected area with a finger and then brush with the herbal powder. Not only would it heal but also neutralize the acidity of bacteria.

Take equal amounts of 3% solution of Hydrogen Peroxide and water. Gargle with this combination but make sure that it is not consumed.

Increase in the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Include foods rich in fiber and vitamin C and those that have low saturated fat.

Home Remedies to Stop Thumb Sucking
******************************************

The causes that lead to the habit of thumb sucking have long been a mystery. Parents have tried a host of products on their children’s thumbs as a way to discourage the practice. There are products on the market that you paint on your son or daughter’s thumb or thumbnail. These products are non-toxic, but they taste horrible. The foul taste is thought to discourage thumb sucking. Instead of trying store-bought products such as these, you should try home remedies to stop thumb sucking.

Actually, the experts, such as Stephen J. Moss, D.D.S., professor and chairman of the Pediatric Dentistry Department at New York University College of Dentistry advises parents not to be too concerned if your child is under the age of five and sucks his or her thumb. Dr. Moss considers it to be fairly normal for a child between birth and three to have this habit. According to him, thumb sucking won’t affect a child’s teeth during this time either.

However, when a child reaches six years old, he or she begins to get their permanent teeth. This starts the time when thumb sucking can cause damage to their teeth. Of course, the front teeth are the most vulnerable to becoming distended. That’s due to the force that’s applied to them by the thumb and the sucking action.

So, what are some effective home remedies to stop thumb sucking? First, you have to find out what the cause of thumb sucking is, if you can. According to the National Center for Children Exposed To Violence (NCCEV), children under the age of five years of age are “heavily affected by their parent’s responses to trauma.” This can cause children to be overcome by anxiety. Their anxiety can lead to clutching to their parents, crying, screaming, wetting the bed, having nightmares, and… sucking their thumbs. Since children are unable to deal completely with their emotions, they are prone to frequent bouts of anxiety.

Still, there are home remedies you can use to help stop your son or daughter’s thumb sucking habit. Especially if he or she is six years old or older and you want to avoid having to pay for braces to straighten his or her teeth later on.

Children who suck their thumbs also tend to develop speech problems. They have problems pronouncing the “S” sound and other sounds that require using the tip of the tongue.

And, sometimes a thumb can actually develop minor health problems from the constant moisture and sucking action it’s exposed to. Calluses, dry, cracked skin, and nail infections are common examples of these minor health problems.

The first home remedy you need to know about is dealing with your child’s anxiety. If he or she has more stress than normal in his or her life, this can be causing their thumb sucking habit. So, talk to your child about his or her fears. You may be surprised at what you find out! He or she may need more love and attention than your other children do.

Another home remedy to stop thumb sucking is to give your child rewards for stopping. Make up a page on your computer and print it out so you two can keep track of their progress on a daily basis. Pulling their thumb out of their mouth, yelling, threatening, and embarrassing a child isn’t going to help the matter. Instead, explain to your son or daughter why it’s important that he or she stop. Then, decide together on how your child is going to accomplish this with your help.

The rewards can be some time spent at the local park, a visit to the zoo, an extra story at bedtime, a small toy, et cetera.

Another home remedy to stop thumb sucking is to help make your child aware of their habit. Habits are hard to break. Your son or daughter can stick their thumb in their mouth without even realizing it. A good way to discourage thumb sucking, and keep your child aware to stop, is to place a small dab of perfume on his or her thumb. The taste will discourage thumb sucking. Plus, the smell will help remind them of its purpose.

Home Remedy for Sore Muscles
*******************************
Epsom Salts
Tried and true, a cup or two of Epsom salt dissolved in a warm tub of water works wonders for aching muscles. Use warm, not hot, water. Warm water will dry out your skin less. Soak for 15 minutes or until the water has cooled, up to three times per week. Not recommended for those with health conditions such as heart problems, high blood pressure or diabetes.

How do Epsom salts work? Epsom salts are made up of magnesium sulfate. Magnesium is natural muscle relaxant, and as a salt they help to pull excess fluids out of the tissues, reducing swelling.

Magnesium
Low levels of magnesium in the body can lead to general muscle aches and muscle cramps. You may want to consider a supplement, but you can start by including foods that are high in magnesium in your diet. Some of the top food sources for magnesium are molasses , squash and pumpkin seeds (pepitas), spinach, Swiss chard, cocoa powder, black beans, flax seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and cashews.
