How to Use Miralax As a Detox
Detoxification cleans out the body by removing wastes, debris and other harmful substances. One way to detoxify the body is to clean out the colon ( large intestines). The Mayo Clinic recommends taking laxatives as one way to treat constipation 1. Miralax is an over-the-counter laxative that loosens fecal matter, relieving constipation and promoting more frequent bowel movements 1. As a short-term remedy, Miralax can function as a detox.
If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.
Choose a beverage to use with the Miralax. Some possibities are water, fruit or vegetable juices, soda, tea or coffee.
Pour 4 to 8 ounces of your beverage choice into a glass.
Fill the cap of the Miralax bottle with the powder to the white pre-measured line within the cap.
Empty the cap into the beverage and stir with a spoon. The Miralax dissolves in the beverage.
Drink the mixture once a day only. The Miralax website says the powder has no taste.
Make using a laxative a last resort because laxatives can become a bad habit
Other ways to detox by cleaning out the colon are to drink plenty of water each day and to eat high-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables. It's a way to increase activity in the intestinal muscles.
