Being clean on the inside is crucial for any weight loss or cellulite treatment and can be the difference between success and failure. Have you ever had a blocked drain? If not ask a plumber. When a drain is blocked you cannot wash anything down, it all gurgles back up. Even plain water gets pushed back up and it smells horrible and you know that they are not clean. Bacteria will grow and thrive in this environment, and it all gets yuckier and smellier until the drain is completely blocked and nothing works.
Your own piping system is not much different and it needs to be clean and clear or debris. Your intestines are notoriously long, so long in fact that it is seemingly, logistically impossible that all that length of intestine can possibly be inside you. The small intestine is about 23 feet long and the large intestine is shorter only about 5 feet but is wider than the small intestine; hence their names. Yes around 28 feet of tubing is inside each of us and everything we consume goes along this amazingly long tube. But it gets worse. Inside your intestine are villi, which are like shaggy hairs. These villi increase the surface area of your intestine to about 250 square meters. The size of a tennis court! Now imagine if this area is clogged with waste and toxins. This would obviously reduce the surface area and have a major affect on your metabolic rate and ability. Have I shocked you enough to want to clean your intestines? I do hope so, don’t worry it is the easiest thing in the world to do. And it is a simple daily drink. The drink consists of the purest form of fiber the psyllium husk.
Psyllium husks are a soluble fiber in its purest form. To take, add two teaspoons of psyllium husks to water, stir, and drink. You must drink it straightaway as the little seeds swell up in water and gel. You want this gel to form in your stomach, not in the glass. This psyllium gel moves slowly through your intestines, stimulating the transport of waste. The resulting bulk stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel. This is great exercise for the intestinal walls and will encourage your eliminatory organs to move waste through the system with greater efficiency. This is good to do several times a year. Do it at the start of every season.
Take the psyllium husks at night before you go to bed. You may bloat slightly from them at first so I recommend you take them at night as opposed to during the day. Then any bloating will occur during your sleep time. Take them for two weeks; you don’t want to take them for long periods of time. Take them for two weeks every three months.
The easiest way is to pop a teaspoon of husks into a wide tumbler, swirl them around like mad, and then gulp down as swiftly as possible. You’ll need to refill the glass to get them all down and rinse your mouth. You can also get them in capsule form and is the easiest way to take them. If you are over 40 I recommend that you add psyllium to your diet on a daily basis.
