Synthetic chemicals in food, and environmental pollutants. A clean, strong system can metabolize and excrete many pollutants, but when the body is weak or constipated, they are stored as unusable substances. As more and different chemicals enter the body, they tend to interact with those already there, forming mutant, second generation chemicals that can be far more harmful than the originals. In recent years, evidence has shown that most bowel cancer is caused by environmental agents.

Constipation. The colon is the body's sewage system. If this system backs up, toxins become trapped in file colon. Chronic constipation means that these toxins are fermenting and decaying in the colon, often being reabsorbed into the bloodstream, which then pollutes other tissues and cells. An overload of inadequately excreted body wastes and metabolic by-products means that these wastes can become a breeding ground for parasite infestation.

Slowed elimination time. Slow bowel transit time allows waste material to ferment, become rancid, and then re-circulate through the body as toxic substances. Ideally, one should eliminate as often as a meal is taken. Bowel transit time should be approximately twelve hours.

Over-consumption. Over-eating puts a great amount of stress on our digestive system. The body must produce hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes, bile and other digestive factors to process a meal. When we over-eat, the digestive system finds it hard to meet the demands placed upon it. The stomach bloats as the digestive system goes into turmoil. Foods are not properly broken down and tend to lodge in the lower intestines. Vital nutrients are then not absorbed.

Inadequate water intake. Water makes up 65 to 75% of the human body. It is second only to oxygen in order of importance to life. Water cleanses the inside of the body as well as the outside. It is instrumental in flushing out wastes and toxins. When the body is not receiving enough water, toxins tend to stagnate, hindering all digestive and eliminative processes. Drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day is recommended.

Stress. Stress effects every cell and tissue in the body. Stress breaks down the immune system as well as the body's organs. It robs the body of important vitamins and minerals, and over time, can cause severe acid build-up. Stress hinders proper digestion, absorption and elimination of foods by throwing the digestive system out of balance. The worst thing a person can do is to eat a meal while experiencing extreme stress. Nutrients will not be fully absorbed creating a state of congestion in your system.
