Your Colon

A healthy colon is the key to living a healthy life!

Digestive Problems
Of the many challenges that North Americans face, problems with the digestive system are among the most dangerous. Problems with the large intestines, more commonly known as the colon, are among the top of that list. According to the Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain "More than 65 different health challenges are caused by a toxic colon." Many illnesses and disease are directly related to improper digestion of food and inadequate care of our bowels. Our bodies come with a complete system of checks and balances to determine which substances are useful and which are waste. However, our environment and lifestyles have compromised, and in most cases, damaged the quality of this system to do an adequate job of protecting us from illness and disease.
Permanent Waste Matter; The Source of All Diseases.
There is average 6 kilograms of permanent faecal matter in an adult’s colon, which contains at least 36 kinds of toxins. It is also the biggest threat to a person’s skin beauty. An ordinary American has 2-4 kilograms of permanent faecal matter accumulated in the colon. It is said, the famous movie star John Wayme had 20 kg of waste matter found in his colon during an examination after his death. And Elvis Presley had over 30 kg when he died. Can you imagine what you would find in your colon, that has been at work for years but never been cleaned once?Faecal, decay, and waste matter from the water we drink and food we eat are stored inside the intestine. When the colon’s metabolism is not able to catch up with the fast entering toxins, it becomes chronictoxication. When the toxin spread to other part of the body through blood circulation, many diseases are developed. Modern people don’t receive enough fiber and the lack of exercise makes them vulnerable to constipation. Besides harmful bacteria are absorbed, it is a burden to other organs and may cause complication one day. Fiber may stimulate peristaltic activity of the colon, minimizing the time needed for waste matter to stay in the body. At the same time, it drains the cancerous and bad bacteria inside the colon. It prevents rectum cancer effectively. Constipation could be compared to baving something stuck in your mind. It is depressing not able to let it out. Some people decid to use laxatives to treat constipation. In fact, it is a very unwise way to treat it, because laxative treatment is addictive. After a while, our colon may find it hard to eliminate waste matter, if no laxative is applied. It is to all those who regularly take medicine, that constipation can become every serious and hard to recover from.
