First, I’m going to tell you about a little bug called candida, commonly known as yeast. This is the first part to understanding one of the internal causes of acne.
This nasty little bug loves to thrive in our intestines, especially pockets of old feces that are trapped inside the colon. The problem comes when candida gets out of control. To survive, the candida eats sugars but gives off nasty toxic waste in exchange which your body has to get rid of.
When there are too many of these toxins in the body they can cause all sorts of allergic reactions, and infections including acne. Are you addicted to sweet foods? That’s probably because candida needs sugar to grow and live, so lots of sugars in your body and a bowel that’s out of balance is the perfect breeding ground for candida.
Did you know that your colon can contain up to 25 pounds of undigested food, slime, foul and putrefied fecal matter trapped in your intestinal tract? This is definitely not good. Can you imagine what all the toxins in all this “dead yuck” is doing to your health?
Now you’ve learnt about candida and how it can cause acne. You also know that candida finds it’s home in small pockets of feces in the colon (disgusting I know, but it’s true!) Did you know that a ‘dirty’ colon can cause problems other than acne? Some health experts say that 90% of all sickness and diseases are related to an unclean colon!
If you have had for many years a diet with regular helpings of some of the following: Animal food (including dairy), fried food, coffee or tea, sugar, white flower, microwaved food, hydrogenated fats and drugs (such as aspirin or alcohol) then, you most likely have mucoid plaque in your colon.
One of the best ways to clean out mucoid plaque is by colon cleansing. There are many different ways to perform a colon cleanse but there are some foods that you can start eating today to promote good intestinal health.
Eating lots of fibre-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, wholegrain breads and cereals are a good start. The fibres in apples and psyllium husks act likes a sponge by cleaning the walls of the colon. They also absorb toxins and other junk and help push waste through the colon.
There is only one small problem. If these wonderful cleansing foods don’t exit your body fast enough, the body can actually re-absorb the toxins from them and create more problems!
So how do we get rid of food quickly from our colon? There are several ways which we’ll look at below.
One way is to drink a quart of water mixed with 2 teaspoons of non-iodized salt. I have tried this and it is not very pleasant! Although, you will experience a total elimination within about 30 minutes from drinking the solution. This technique is known as the “Salt Water Flush”.
Another way is to use a substance known as magnesium oxide. This powder, when mixed with fresh lemon juice liquifies the stool and also produces fast elimination.
The last way is by using a gentle laxative such as a herbal laxative tea. They can be bought cheap, but their effect can be questionable due to different quality and different ingredients.
The above colon “flushing” methods are only to be used for a few days at a time and not every day otherwise your body may get used to them and even become dependent on them.
