Colon Health

Colon health is at the core of living a full and healthy life. If you carry any colon health symptoms they will inevitably affect your life at some point in the future. Count on it. Toxic colons don’t play favorites and could care less about your age.

Many health professionals, especially those whose expertise is on bowel management, note that the root of most every disease known to man can be linked to a toxic bowel. Since this is the case, why don’t more people focus on this area of their overall health?

World renowned health author Dr Bernard Jensen, D.C., Ph.D., states: “In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems. In treating over 300,000 patients, it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.”

Colon Knowledge is Power

I believe that when we empower ourselves with the right knowledge we can more directly guide our own health. So let’s take a look at just what the colon is and what you can do to keep your plumbing in optimal condition.

It is a part of the large intestine. There are 4 sections to the large intestine.

  • => Ascending
  • => Traverse
  • => Descending
  • => Sigmoid 

The colon absorbs water and electrolytes from undigested food passed from the small intestine. At intervals, rhythmic contractions move the waste matter toward the rectum.

It is imperative we cleanse this toxic waste from our colon. It is not designed to continue processing feces. Yet the majority of people have a bowel that is between 15 and 40 lbs! Just imagine that much waste toxifying in your colon. How can we expect to be healthy if we treat our bodies like a dump, allowing waste to rest in our bodies?

Slow Decay = Acceleratred Aging

An unclean, unhealthy bowel leads to the development of parasites. The stagnation of waste in the bowel releases putrefied matter into the blood, poisoning the nervous system and the brain. This can lead to deep mood swings and disorders like depression and chronic fatigue.

This toxicity in your blood causes all sorts of symptoms that directly hamper our lives. Bloated organs, foul breath from toxicity in the lungs, skin that lacks elasticity and glow. These are just a few symptoms evolving from an ignored colon.

In essence, we age prematurely. Our thinking is affected and our ability to process information is slowed. While these symptoms can obviously be associated to aging they don’t require numerous years behind you to be in your life.

In fact, the aging process itself can be altered by having a healthy colon. Poor colon health = acceleration of the effects of aging. Good colon health = slowed effects of aging.

High Fiber Promotes Colon Health

By simply increasing the amount of quality dietary fiber moving through your colon, you greatly enhance colon health. Doing a cleanse once per year is a wise move. There are numerous colon cleanses you can do. Include psyllium husk into your diet, beyond it’s place in a cleanse, and you’ll feel the difference. As well, you’ll know you’re doing something effective for maintaining colon health.

Make the use of fiber a basic part of your life and your colon health will be right on track.
