Colon Cleansing Herbal Tea
    Digested food and debris in the colon leads to the absorption of toxins, resulting in intoxication (poisoning).
Some of the symtoms of this condition can include confustion, dsepression, irritability, fatigue, gastrointestinal, irregularities, and allergic reactions such as hives, sneezing, and coughing.  Colon cleansing is a necessity for removing toxins and debris from the body.  The best way to remove toxins from the body is to fast. If you do not want to fast then the following supplements or herbs can help you cleanse your colon.

Suggestions:  Irrigate: a colonic irrigation is a good way to start a colon/bowel cleanse.  Grapefruit seed extract (15-20 drops in a gallow of water) is effective, eespecially if there is colon toxicity along with constipation. Allow water to enter very slowly: let them expel when they wish. Exercise: take a brisk walk for an hour every day. Bathe: take several long warm baths during your cleanse.
Directions:  Directions:  Use one packed small tea ball to 3 cups of water for medicinal-strength tea.  Use distilled water or pure spring water for increased herbal strength and effectiveness.  Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, add herbs and steep covered off heat:  10 to 15 minutes for a leaf-flower tea; 15-20 minutes for  a root-bark tea.  Keep lid down during steeping so volatile oils don’t escape.  Use a teapot of glass, ceramic, or earthenware, not aluminum.  Never use Teflon coated utensils. Aluminum can negate the effect of the herbs as he metal dissolves into the hot liquid and gets into the body.  Drink medicinal teas in small sips throughout the day rather than all at once.  One-half to one cup, taken 3 to 4 times a day allows absorption of the tea, without  passing before it has a chance to work.
