Your body’s ability to eliminate toxins and wastes determines your entire state of health. Did you know that every cell, organ, and system in your body is designed to bring in nutrition and fuel to survive, and eliminate waste when it’s done? A majority of this waste eventually ends up in your colon. While discussing the body’s intestinal system is not generally a topic people feel comfortable sharing with others, it’s one that cannot be ignored if you want to remain healthy or restore lost health.
A healthy functioning gastrointestinal system is absolutely critical for good health. If your digestive system is not working perfectly it’s only a matter of time before you go back to the dust of the earth just as the scriptures proclaim. Proper digestion is essential to release the nutrients contained within our foods so they can be absorbed into the bloodstream and nourish the body’s cells with life. Proper elimination of metabolic wastes is also essential to keep the system clean and free of morbid wastes. Any malfunction in the digestive process can ultimately lead to a cellular malfunction, which given enough time, can lead to a complete system malfunction.
Why Colon Cleansing Is A Must
Experts estimate that over 20% of middle-age and older adults may have one or more colon polyps. Up to one in five Americans (approximately 60 million) has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS accounts for more than 1 out every 10 doctor visits. Some health experts have stated that every American will develop some type of colon disease, polyp, tumor, or colon cancer in their lifetime.
If you suffer from any of the following symptoms for an extended period of time you have reasons to be concerned.
* Diarrhea or chronic constipation
* Rectal bleeding or blood in the stool
* Stools that are smaller in width than usual
* Abdominal gas and discomfort
* Frequent gas pains
* A feeling that the bowel never completely empties
* Unexplained weight loss
* Constant tiredness
* Unexplained anemia
Any one of these symptoms could indicate an intestinal disorder that needs attention. It could also be a sign of cancer.
Beware Of Parasites & Other Microorganisms
Another often overlooked problem with a malfunctioning colon that is impacted with putrefying, fermenting wastes and inadequate healthy flora is that it can become a breeding ground for unwanted microorganisms, such as parasites, viruses, fungus, flukes, and of course, anaerobic bacteria. These microorganisms fester in this mess as a source of food because your body didn’t do the job.
A perfect analogy of what can happen internally is if you were to leave a pile of dirty dishes in the sink with food crumbs and debris lying around your house for an extended period of time. What do you think would happen? Your home will be invaded with cockroaches, ants, and other microscopic scavengers. Similar things take place in the human body when unwanted wastes and debris are lying around for extended periods of time without being properly eliminated. It’s time we started putting the same kind of focus on internal cleanliness as we do on external cleanliness.
Mucus Doesn’t Only Come From Your Lungs & Nose
To compound the intestinal assault, harmful heavy metals and toxins consumed from your diet force the body into another serious protective reaction. The body will create a mucus film that goes from the tongue straight throughout the intestines in order to stop toxins from making their way into the bloodstream. People with a thick mucus coating on their intestines usually have a noticeable white film on their tongues. As more and more toxins come into the body, more mucus will be produced. Over time, this mucus film can become thicker and harder, and eventually wreak havoc within the intestines.
When digestion isn’t working properly, and food and wastes aren’t being eliminated, you run the risk of autointoxication, a $10 word for self-poisoning. This condition can literally starve the cells in your body by blocking them from receiving their nutrition, eventually causing severe malnutrition. All the supplements in the world will do nothing for your body if the intestinal system is in a state of disarray. Constipation, irregular bowel movements, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, gas, nutritional deficiencies, and other intestinal related problems are in many cases the result of an intestinal system that has been overloaded and is heading for a complete breakdown.
