At any point in the year, a homemade colon cleanse can be very helpful to help flush out some of the toxins in your body. These toxins can be a contributing factor to your GI troubles and other symptoms, including constipation, lack of energy and more.

This is super easy to do: Just plan a day when you do not need to leave home and allow the colon cleansing process and your body to adapt to each other, especially since you’ll be eliminating a ton of waste and detoxing in the process.

Homemade DIY Colon Cleanse 


½ cup apple juice (organic and with no added sugar)

½ cup filtered water

½ teaspoon ginger powder or paste

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

½ teaspoon sea salt



Mix the water and apple juice together.

Add the lemon juice, salt and ginger paste and mix thoroughly

You can drink warm or chilled, although do not put it in the fridge for hours. This is meant to be drank immediately.

Drink 8 ounces first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Drink again with lunch and again in the afternoon, before dinner.



You should have a bowel movement from 30-90 minutes after each drink. You should not feel crampy or a bad urge, just a fullness and a need to empty your bowels.

Do not drink this after dinner or you might end up getting woken up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.

This cleanse is safe for most and should not present any issues. But, as always, it is a good idea to check with your doctor if you’re ill, pregnant or are under medical care.
