Optimum health, fitness and well-being demand good nutrition, an active lifestyle, adequate rest, and we need to be proactive and diligent with regular internal cleansing of the colon as a result of the toxins we are exposed to everyday.
Aging is becoming a process of accumulating more toxins, and disfunction.
Compromising our health is a very broken compromised environmental landscape and food chain. Overly processed, low-fibre diets, pesticides, preservatives, antibiotics, growth hormones, heavy metals, parasites, and genetically modified organisms.
Excessive dietary habits and the over-consumption of fast foods, cause a slowing down of the elimination process through the colon. If our elimination systems are under-active and the toxins accumulate faster than can be eliminated, then the body’s defences can be compromised.
Electro Magnetic Frequencies, and increased levels of stress contribute to our toxic load.
In terms of bowel movements, if we eat three meals a day we should be having three bowel movements per day. Most people eliminate on average once daily, so what is happening to those other two meals? Even people who have three bowel movements per day may still be having incomplete bowel movements due to poor diet, stress and dehydration. Many people have a 'mouth to out' transit time of a week......a week.
The toxins and wastes from all of these habits can gradually accumulate in the colon. It is estimated that the average person has between 5-15 pounds of accumulated waste material in the colon, and can accumulate 5 pounds of waste yearly.
When unexpelled fecal material builds up in the colon due to poor dietary habits, the absorption of vital nutrients slows down to the degree of build up. The accumulated build up on the bowel wall becomes a breeding ground for unhealthy bacterial life forms (parasites). In addition, the capillaries in the colon absorb these toxins and poisons and they are passed into the digestive system. The absorption of toxins from within the body’s digestive system is a form of self-poisoning or “autointoxication” on a physiological level. Connected to the digestive system are your circulatory and lymphatic systems. Toxins can thereby enter the bloodstream and settle into the tissues and organs, creating many different states of disease, including autoimmune disorders. This is believed to be the root cause of many illnesses.
You may begin to experience the following conditions:
Poor digestion, bloating and gas
Constipation, laxative abuse
Overweight, bloating or rigid abdomen
Poor digestion, abdominal discomfort or nausea
Allergies, food sensitivities
Headaches and migraines
Frequent colds or flus
PMS or menstrual problems
Depression, fatigue, mental confusion, brain fog
Eczema, psoriasis, acne
Bad breath, body odour, coated tongue
As long as the colon remains toxic, the liver and other organs of the body will remain congested. As toxicity in the body’s storage areas increases, vitality decreases and parasites increase. Some examples of conditions resulting from toxic storage include arthritis(deposits of toxins and unnatural calcium in joint tissues), fibromyalgia (toxins and unnatural calcium in muscle tissue, atherosclerosis (fatty deposits inside arteries) and gout (storage of uric acid as far from the heart as possible).
Eventually, when the body is faced with too many toxins to eliminate, the body stores the toxins in the cells. What eventually occurs is the degeneration and eventual mutation of cells. The cells are no longer able to reproduce themselves in their original healthy form and they begin to reproduce as diseased cells. Cancer cells for example are a result of this process. Colon cancer, one of the leading causes of death in Canada, can result from years of autointoxication.
Disease begins and ends with the colon! If the colon is cleansed the pressure is relieved and the rest of the body is able to start dumping its toxins. The body can then begin to heal and reverse the disease process.
