Exists different colon cleanses which you can consider, but if you drink a lot of water, supplements and fiber to get rid of all the gunk from your intestines you can   improve the body's natural detoxification processes and restore the digestive health .


Just like the colon, your liver also has an important role to play to take out all the unwanted toxins. This organ frequently gets overwhelmed by too much junk food.

Take for a week a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and water.
