Antibiotics. Antibiotics have a damaging effect on the intestines, especially if they are taken for extensive periods of time, or if many different courses are taken over a period of years. Their prescribed purpose is to eliminate unhealthy bacteria that cause illness in the body. However, antibiotics can not discriminate between the unhealthy and the healthy, necessary, good bacteria. They strip the colon of ALL intestinal flora. This puts the digestive and eliminative system out of balance, creating problems in the colon and in the entire intestinal tract.

Lack of exercise. Exercise strengthens the entire body. It stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic system, building muscles, nerves, blood, glands, lungs, heart, brain, mind and mood. Blood is pumped throughout the body by the heart, but lymphatic fluid depends solely on exercise to be circulated. Lack of exercise lowers metabolic efficiency, and without circulatory stimulation, the body's natural cleansing systems are weakened.

Eating late at night. The human body uses sleep to repair, rebuild and restore itself. In essence, the body uses the sleeping hours to cleanse and build. When a person goes to sleep with a full stomach, the body is not at rest. Instead, it is actually busy digesting and processing food. This inhibits the vital cleansing, building and restorative processes that normall3~ occur while one is asleep. In addition, the body requires gravity to assist with the digestion of foods and its passage from the stomach down the digestive tract. If one is asleep, food cannot move very well. Instead, the food sits in the stomach, decomposing. The result can be severe indigestion and gas, a slowing down of the digestive system and mal-absorption.

Why Should I Care About my Colon?

Most colons are ridden with unfriendly bacteria that inhibits the assimilation of nutrients, throws the body's digestion system out of balance and eventually leads to disease. When unhealthy bacteria is in control, it is impossible to achieve optimum health. Further, many health and nutrition experts believe that the colon is the hub of the human body, and claim that toxic buildup in the bowels is a precursor to various types of degenerative diseases.
