(NaturalNews) There's been quite a bit of debate about colon cleansing in recent years. People who do it swear by it; they're often walking testimonials of the disease that can be swept from the body in this manner. But, people who've never done it can think colon cleansing sounds a bit strange, and really, who can blame them?
It may also surprise you that until about 30 years ago, colon cleansing, and even liver cleansing using coffee enemas, was standard protocols recommended in the Merck manual. But in the last thirty years, colon cleansing has been swept under the rug. Far more profitable drug and surgery methods have replaced simply removing a great deal of accumulated filth from the body.
But colon cleansing isn't just a 20th century invention. A mostly unknown book, called The Essene Gospel of Peace, claims to contain the unaltered teachings of Jesus Christ and inside, it discusses colon cleansing in-depth. It even talks about all of the diseases formed from an impure diet, which are said to be the works of Satan.
The Essene Gospel of Peace is said to have been translated from an ancient manuscript hidden in the secret archives of the Vatican. Here's an excerpt of what's inside.
"I tell you truly, the uncleanness within is greater by much than the uncleanness without. And he who cleanses himself without, but within remains unclean, is like a tomb that outwards are painted fair, but are within full of all manner of horrible uncleanness and abominations."
"Seek, therefore, a large trailing gourd, having a stalk the length of a man; take out its inwards and fill it with water from the river, which the sun has warmed. Hang it upon the branch of a tree, and kneel upon the ground before the angel of water, and suffer the end of the stalk of the trailing gourd to enter your hinder parts, that the water may flow through all your bowels. Afterwards rest kneeling on the ground before the angel of water that he will free your body from every uncleanness and disease. Then let the water run out from your body, that it may carry away from within all the unclean and evil-smelling things of Satan."
Those words are the first recorded directions on how to give yourself an enema.
Long after those words where spoken, colon cleansing has become a favorite technique of many successful healers and naturopaths around the world.
Legendary healer, Dr. Bernard Jensen even coined the phrase, "Death begins in the colon." Dr. Jensen lived to be 92 years old and had considerable success removing "incurable" diseases from many bodies, by cleaning the colon and practicing a hygienic diet.
These days, the statement that death begins in the colon is even more true that it was decades ago. And the operative word today is begins.
This is the case because diets are far worse than any previous time in history. They're more chemical-ridden, more sugared, more meat-oriented, and more processed; this is a recipe for disaster in the colon, and throughout the body.
According to studies by the Royal Society of Medicine U.K, "90% of all chronic diseases are due to infection of the gastrointestinal tract."
The thing about a chemical-oriented, processed, highly-sugared and heavy meat-eating diet is that our bodies aren't equipped to process all of those things. And if we can't process them, often times we can't eliminate them.
This means that old fecal matter gets stuck inside our bodies and becomes corroded on our colon walls. In a nutshell, this is why constipation is common and drugs companies sell 1.5 billion dollars worth of laxatives each year.
Inside our bodies, the non-eliminated filth begins to rot and putrefy.
After years or decades of accumulation, this putrefied mess can absolutely lead to disease. It can lead to disease in the colon, or anywhere in the body. The colon walls are porous and what is trapped inside the colon will eventually leak into the blood where it can be transported to accumulate anywhere in the body. Where it accumulates will often be the deciding factor as to the symptoms, or disease, your body develops.
Today, matters are made even worse, because most of the population also lives with a common fungal condition called candida overgrowth.
Although we're actually supposed to have small amounts of candida in our colon, candida overgrowth becomes a problem when the healthy bacteria in our colons are killed. This is commonly done with chemicals in our diets, chlorine in our water, antibiotics doled out like candy, steroid medications and birth control pills.
When we no longer have our healthy bacteria to keep the candida in small proportions, the candida yeast grows to large proportions. Eventually, it morphs into a fungus.
After it's overgrown in your colon, the candida then eat small holes in your colon walls, and can escape to live in your bloodstream, or anywhere in your body. This causes numerous problems, but the main point is: these days many people also have small holes in their colon walls which allow filth from the colon to enter the blood very easily. This leads to pollution in the body, not just in the colon, but throughout the entire body and it's a primary cause of disease.
Have you seen images of what comes out of the feet with ionic foot baths? http://www.atlantachiropractic.org/… Most people don't realize that they have considerable amounts of such filth all throughout their bodies.
Cleaning your colon is one step to getting it all out. When you combine colon cleansing with other body cleansing processes, like liver cleansing and other advanced protocols, it's possible to reach even deeper levels of toxicity in the body, which can remove even more difficult to eliminate disease.
