How to use flaxseed to cleanse the colon and lose weight
Most enema and colon cleansings only work within a very small part of the intestines, about 50 centimeters, in addition to requiring very specific ingredients that are suitable for the desired goal. That being said, a great way to cleanse your entire colon is by eating flaxseed for three consecutive weeks.
This treatment will completely cleanse the intestines, by removing any “excess” solid mass, mucus and parasites, but well maintaining the healthy intestinal microflora. By following this technique, it will also help you lose and burn fat faster, while having a positive effect on the regulation of lipid metabolism in general.
Flaxseed is easily absorbed to remove toxins from the body, reduces cholesterol levels, and reduces the fat and sugar content of the bloodstream. A colon cleansing using flaxseed is indicated for people suffering from:

- Gastric ulcer, gastritis, colitis, or a duodenal ulcer
- Diseases such as urinary tract infections, pelvic inflammatory disease or cystitis
