Colon cancer is the third most common form of cancer and the second cause of cancer-related deaths according to Wikipedia. These numbers are alarming, and that means colon cancer is a serious illness that needs immediate treatment once detected. Filipinos are very well aware of this now since this is the illness that caused the death of our beloved former President Cory Aquino. Her colon cancer was discovered when it’s already in Stage 4, the cancer has already spread in all parts of the body.
Known causes of colon cancer are age, known family history of colon cancer and a diet high in fat. Early prevention for colon cancer is advised expecially to those who have a history of colon cancer in the family. One effective way is to colon cleanse. Colon cleansing eliminates the toxins built up inside our body through our unhealthy diet. A detox diet (detoxification diet) called master cleansing will not only eliminate toxins but also makes you lose weight. It may be hard at first since this diet will only require you to drink lemonade consisting of lemo juice, maple syrup, cayenne paper and water. No solid food intake is allowed during this phase. After a detox diet, some may opt to undergo colonic. What is a colonic? It is a procedure that also cleanses the colon by inserting water into the colon through a tube.
Prevention is better than cure, right? I might try this detox diet if I have a free 10 days to stay at home.
