Blocked waste matter present in the colon or large intestine can lead to various health disorders such as chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating and acid reflux.

Colon cleansing diets are also followed by many as an important prelude to weight loss or weight management. Such diets though beneficial should be limited to a week or two such that the body should not be deprived of essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals. Juice diets are considered a good way to flush the toxins away from the system naturally. Include a wide variety of juices instead of solid foods for a short period. This simple technique helps the body receive essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients while giving the digestive system a break from processing solids. But continuing such juice fasts for longer period is not advisable. Include intake of natural laxatives such as psyllium husk, prune juice and fiber rich foods.

Alcohol and smoking only make matters worse so avoid or at least restrict your intake. Exercising moderately can also help the digestive system function effectively.
