GARLIC - Eat garlic as often as possible, preferably three to four times per week. Eat it as close to raw as you possibly can. If you are unable to eat raw garlic, cook it lightly.

WATER - Drink plenty of water every day. Water is crucial in keeping your digestive system healthy. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day in addition to any other liquids that you drink. Water is essential for good health. Keep fresh water handy throughout your day so that you can easily drink your eight glasses. Drink your water in glass or stainless steel containers. Avoid plastic containers whenever possible. If your home water is not sufficient, install a water filter. Only buy plastic water bottles when it is the only water available.

FIBER SUPPLEMENTS - Use fiber supplements on if necessary. Your colon will be properly cleansed using the methods above, but if you feel that you need additional help you can use a fiber supplement.
