Will A Christmas Cleanse Help Get Your Gut Ready For The Holidays?

With Christmas just around the corner, if you suffer from Crohn’s disease or IBS you may be wondering how on earth you are going to get through the holidays without at least one or two flare-ups. To help you get your colon ready for the holiday season, you may want to consider doing a pre-Christmas cleanse. But what does a cleanse entail and how can it work? Let’s take a closer look.

What’s A Cleanse?

You don’t have to starve yourself and only have lemon water with cayenne pepper for weeks to cleanse your colon. In fact, that may just ruin your metabolism. Instead, you can try to cleanse your colon with either some laxatives or an herbal supplement. If you aren’t sure which kind of cleanse will be best for you, your health, and your colon then make sure that you contact our office and we will go over each of these options.

What Are The Benefits?

Cleanses are good for your body because they help to get rid of toxins that have built up. When you do a colon cleanse, you are helping you cleanse empty out which, in turn, gets rid of a lot of toxins, harmful bacteria, and anything else that may contribute to a flare up.

Post-Cleanse Care

After you do a cleanse, we encourage our patients to really watch what they eat. Although you may want to eat greasy foods, just remember that those won’t do your colon and gut any favors. Instead, try eating things that are high in fiber and low in fats.

Cleansing isn’t good to do all of the time, but right before a holiday feast you may want to consider giving it a try. If you want to learn more about gut health or cleanses, contact us our New York City office.
