“The bowel-wise person is the one who is armed with good knowledge, practices discrimination in his eating habits and walks the path of the higher life. His days are blessed with health, vitality, optimism and the fulfillment of life’s goals. He is a blessing and source of inspiration to family and associates. His cheerful disposition comes from having a vital, toxin-free body made possible by the efficient, regular, and cleansing action of a loved and well-cared for bowel.” ~Dr. Bernard Jensen
“Infirmity and sickness, at any age, is the direct result of loading up the body with food which contains no vitality, and at the same time allowing the intestines to remain loaded with waste matter.” ~Dr. Norman Walker
“If the sewer system in your home is backed up, your entire home is affected. Should it be any different with your body?” ~Norman Walker
“The colon is the gateway to health or disease.” ~Edward F. Group
“Constipation can undermine the whole body, including the immune system and it is now known that irregular bowel movements can be directly related to serious health conditions as well as emotional issues such as depression.” ~Loretta Lanphier
“Of all the polite topics of conversation, the state of one’s intestines is probably at the bottom of most people’s lists. Let’s face it: Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gas, diverticulitis and colon cancer are simply not things we like to discuss. And yet, as the old expression goes, death begins in the colon. Don’t believe it? Ask any coroner. Autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material.” ~Vegetarian Times, March, 1998
We wash our hair and our bodies, brush our teeth, clean our cars inside and out, clean our homes, clean our drains, change the filters on our furnaces, change the oil in our cars, wash our windows, and wash our streets, and we do all of this on a regular basis.
Yet when it comes to our colon?
The colon is one thing that has the greatest impact on our overall health and vitality, yet we let it accumulate years and years of sludge and debris from food we cannot expel.
This state occurs because either our digestive system is sluggish, or because our bodies just don’t know what to do a substance because it’s not real food, meaning it is processed and full of toxic chemicals.
Many believe Elvis Presley died of a drug overdose. However, it is also reported he died from chronic constipation.
As much as the topic of healthy and regular BMs (yes I said it) is uncomfortable for many people, it does not change the fact that it is a very important topic, as is the topic of the care and maintenance of this very important part of our anatomy.
Our colon plays a crucial role in our overall health. The ‘out of sight out of mind’ approach does not work in keeping our colon clean. Just like turning a blind eye to the mess in the kitchen sink will not magically make the dishes sparkling clean, we have to choose consciously to take care of cleansing ourselves on a regular basis.
These are some of the results of an unhealthy and toxic colon:
- Gas & bloating
- Skin problems
- Chronic fatigue
- Aches and pains
- Poor memory
- Body odor
- Gallbladder symptoms
- Prostate trouble
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Food cravings
- Sinus problems
- Low energy
The benefits of colon cleansing are:
- Improvement in constipation
- Flushing of toxins
- Emotional and physical vitality
- Increased sense of well being
- Help in cleansing the liver and lymphatic system
Having suffered from year and years of constipation I can attest to most of this from personal experience. It took me years of learning the hard way and a close call with a torn colon to wake me up to the importance of colon cleansing.
You don’t have to wait and learn the hard way as I did—this is not my recommendation.
Here are some of the ways in which you can start to take care of your colon on a regular basis. These are my recommendations:
- Diet – eat more fiber, aim for 35 grams per day of soluble and insoluble fiber http://www.prebiotin.com/fiber-content-foods/
- Drink more water – if your urine is pale yellow to clear you are getting enough, if it is darker than that you need to drink more.
- Eat fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt, miso and kombucha tea.
- Add greens to your diet like wheat grass, alfalfa, barley grass or liquid chlorophyll.
- Try giving yourself regular enemas. http://bodyecology.com/articles/home_enemas_how_and_why.php#.U6M9i_ldWSo
- Colon hydrotherapy or colonics. http://www.123healing.com/colon-hydro-therapy.html
I recommend that you start with suggestions 1 through 4 first and look at 5 and 6 if you are still having health issues and not achieving your desired results.
Colon cleansing did not just improve my health, it saved my life. You don’t have to wait to get sick before making this as important as washing your hair, brushing your teeth or taking a shower.
