It’s both easy and cheap to do a colon cleanse using herbal teas. There are many herbal teas on the market that you can drink to cleanse your colon.

Visit your local health food store or do some research on the Internet. You will find many teas that you can use. Check also detox and weight loss teas. When you’ve found a product you think you would like, then you can always do a search review on that particular tea . Most tea websites will ship the tea directly to your door.

Some of the herbal teas that are good for a colon cleanse are:

Peppermint Leaves
Slippery Elm Bark
Fennel Seeds
Licorice Root
Raspberry Leaves
Cinnamon Chips
Senna Leaf
Rhubarb Root
Cascara Sagrada

Some teas have some of these ingredients and are especially made for the purpose of colon cleansing, so you don’t have to mix the teas yourself. Some come highly recommended.

During the colon cleanse (it is recommended to do a cleanse from between one day and a week), you should only eat foods that are nourishing and light. Keep away from processed products and fast food during the cleanse. It’s best to have steamed vegetables, fresh fruit or fruit juice. Keep away from meat, fish and dairy products as they tend to clog you up. The same applies to carbs, so no potatoes or potato products, pastries, bread etc. It’s easy to make a simple vegetable soup with just fresh vegetables and broth. Your body will thank you for it.

This might be difficult for you but just get through one day at a time. The longer you keep doing it, the better. After the allotted number of days you’ve decided upon, it’s important to introduce other foods gradually. Don’t race out to your local restaurant and order a big meal! Take it easy and only eat until you are full. Even coffee will taste odd after a week of herbal tea.

The good news is that you will feel light and clean on the inside. You probably will not even want any heavy meals right away.

Be careful when coming off the Lemon Cleanse. Don’t make the mistake of eating solid foods right away. Make a soup of vegetables and just drink the broth for the first day and gradually, over a couple of days, start eating solid food again.

This can be a great way to detoxify your body. It is simple and is not expensive but it takes determination and motivation as you don’t eat solid food for ten days and basically just drink this lemonade, water and herbal tea.
