Are you ready to improve your digestive health? Do you feel bloated? Do you have constipation, diarrhea, gas, or stomach cramps? Here are four key strategies to clean out your digestive system.
Clean Out Your Pipes To Improve Digestive Health
Here are four R’s to heal your gut and keep it running smoothly: Remove, Repair, Restore and Replace.
- Detoxify to remove irritants and damaging substances (Remove)
- Alkalize to balance your blood pH (Repair)
- Add prebiotics and probiotics to build a healthy gut (Restore)
- Replenish salts, enzymes and hydrochloric acid for healthy digestive functioning (Replace)
Strategy 1: Detoxify to improve digestive health (Remove)
Removing toxins from your system can aid digestion, absorption, nutrient use and elimination. Remove processed foods, refined sugar and other toxins from your diet.
Then identify and eliminate foods from your diet that may irritate and damage your intestinal lining. This damage can cause leaky gut syndrome or other digestive problems.
Here are some types of detoxification and cleansing:
- Whole Food Cleansing
- Fruit and Vegetable Cleansing
- Juice Cleansing
- Metabolic Cleansing
These programs should be supervised by a health coach or another health professional.

Strategy 2: Alkalize to balance your blood pH (Repair)
Reduce inflammation by making your blood more alkaline. You can do this by eating or drinking:
- “Green juice” made with leafy greens, blue-green algae, spirulina or chlorophyll.
- Lemon juice in warm water. This is most effective when taken in the morning on an empty stomach.
- Fruits and vegetables. These foods contain fiber, lots of micronutrients and lots of antioxidants.
You can also add foods, herbs and supplements which promote intestinal healing. Examples of these are omega 3 fatty acids, turmeric, aloe vera and L-glutamine.
Strategy 3: Add prebiotics and probiotics to build a healthy gut (Restore)
Take a good probiotic to add friendly bacteria to your gut. Eat prebiotics to help feed this friendly bacteria. Probiotics include cultured and fermented foods such as:
Here are some good prebiotic foods:
- Raw Chicory Root
- Raw Jerusalem Artichokes
- Raw Dandelion Greens
- Raw Onions
- Raw Garlic
- Raw Asparagus
Strategy 4: Replenish salts, enzymes and hydrochloric acid to improve digestive health (Replace)
Replenish the salts, enzymes and hydrochloric acid your body needs to improve digestive health. You can add digestive enzymes and Himalayan sea salt as needed to restore the hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach. Adding more raw vegetables and fruit also helps replace digestive enzymes.
