Internal Health
The Importance of Colon Cleansing
Read about our recommended 14 day Colon Cleanse Here

Colon health, regular bowel movements and internal cleansing are, understandably, not popular conversation topics in western culture. It is not a subject that one even discusses with their doctor very often, nor is it adequately addressed in the medical field. The medical profession prefers to see the colon as something that is left alone until a specific adverse symptom, treatable with drugs and/or surgery is diagnosed. Thus, with respect to digestive health, one's overall health, energy and well-being are often overlooked, and somehow considered unimportant.

The importance of the colon to overall bodily health cannot be emphasized enough. In fact, total health cannot be achieved without a systematic approach to colon care. The colon is an organ of digestion. All of the food we eat passes through the colon where it is broken down by bacteria, digestive acids and enzymes. Nutrients from the food we consume are absorbed through the colon into the bloodstream and then carried throughout the body.

The colon is also an organ of elimination. Not only is the colon responsible for absorbing nutrients, but it is also responsible for elimination of wastes and toxins, keeping "unfriendly" bacteria in check, and for creating valuable chemical products like 'friendly' lactobacteria and vitamins K and B12. The body cannot function optimally unless the colon is in good health. It is estimated that over 95% of the population have unhealthy colons---and many have parasites, being far more common than anyone realizes. A nationwide study reveals that one in every six people studied have parasites living somewhere in the body. Click here to learn about  our recommended 14 day Colon Cleanse Here

Colon Toxicity Time Bomb

Most colons resemble a sewage system and are loaded with impacted, putrefying decay, toxic material, toxic gas, parasites and other unhealthy conditions. The reason this is so is due to many factors---the highly processed, refined, nutrient-deficient foods that we eat; stress; environmental hazards; lack of exercise; consumption of antibiotics and other toxic pharmaceuticals; over-eating; inadequate water intake; eating late at night; and many other reasons. The following is a list of common causes of colon toxicity:

Poor diet. Poor diet includes dead, cooked, devitalized, clogging, low fiber foods, fried foods, and foods tainted with synthetic chemicals. These, unlike live foods (fresh fruits and vegetables), lack the proper enzymes that assist in proper digestion and assimilation, lack the fiber or bulk to assist in proper elimination, and are void of essential vitamins, minerals, and other basic nutrients.
