Colon Cleansing Is Important To Your Health


Visitors: 202

Having regular bowel movements is more important to our general health then most people realize. Everyone should have at least one bowel movement every other day, and once a day is optimal. If one fails to do so, they are on their way to very serious health problems and quite possibly, disease.

The modern, Western diet is one that is full of processed foods, white sugar and flour, pesticides, preservatives, hormones and antibiotics. As these types of food stuffs have become more and more common in our diets, so have the instances of disease, especially cancer. We put our bodies and our health at risk, every time we choose to eat these types of foods.

Most people are unaware that colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer- related deaths in the United States. One reason for this is that our colons are full of the byproducts of the junk that we pour into our bodies on a regular basis. Even if one has a bowel movement everyday, there are always about an equivalent of three meals of waste in our colons. The Western diet is often lacking in fiber, so waste does not get pushed out like it should.

To counteract this, we need to get rid of the backed up waste and toxins that are impacted in our colons. Cleansing our bowels helps up to accomplish this. A sluggish bowel can be a symptom of a bigger problem, or can be the beginning of impending health issues. Constipation is a very common bowel problem. Constipation occurs when the transit time of waste becomes extremely slow. The longer it takes for waste to transit out of the bowels, the longer it is able to rest in our bowels. This can result in the fermentation, re-absorption or putrefying of the waste in the intestines. When this happens, the likelihood of developing various types of diseases increases.

Disease generally begins when we have high levels of toxic by-products in our colon. When we become constipated and the waste is allowed to stay in our system, we are creating the perfect breeding place for cancer and other types of dangerous diseases. Being sure that we have frequent and good quality bowel movements, is very important to our health. The longer we allow waste to sit in colon, the more risk we are assuming with out health.

The Western diet in the last 50-60 years has been one that includes tons of sugar, preservatives, salt, pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. And while the health field is not being as forthcoming as they should regarding the danger or eating such a diet, the resulting increased, instances of disease, especially cancer telling us all that we need to know. We have to make sure that we become responsible for our own health. Getting rid of dangerous toxins through colon cleansing is one way for us to take responsibility and counteract some of the dangerous substances that are found in our food, water and air.

A proper, colon cleansing can help to increase our energy, move old waste from our colon, improve our immune system and even improve acne. There are many ways to accomplish this. One can purchase a program specifically for this purpose or they can use a more natural approach. Both ways can be very effective way for a colon cleanse.
