A Clean Colon : Why You Should Care
If You Have One?
Because if it’s not, it handicaps almost every other system in your body.
“In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems. In treating over 300,000 patients, it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.”
So says one of the best known nutrition experts in the world, Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., N.D., Ph.D., author of many popular health books, including Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management, 1980. He went on to say:
"The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It's that hard and black."
Colon Cleansing : Why It's Important
According to Dr. Lynn Hardy, N.D., C.N.C., Naturopathic Doctor, Certified Nutritional Consultant, Director of the Global College of Natural Medicine and a member of the American Naturopathic Medical Association and the American Association of Nutritional Consultants:
“Any cleansing program should begin in the colon, the last portion of the digestive system. The colon’s job is to compact the chime, absorb water, and receive B-vitamins that are produced by healthy intestinal bacteria.”
And here, acording to Dr. Lynn Hardy, is what your colon could look like if you let it go too long:
What Makes (and Keeps) Us So Sick?
There is so much money to be made by selling us products – and lifestyles – that make and keep us sick. We somehow think that the medical profession, the pharmaceutical industry, insurance companies and the government want us to be healthy, but everything tells us otherwise. Including how easily the doctors and drug companies lobby our senators into doing what’s best for them and not the general population.
* Rather than spend a few cents on patient education, prevention and natural medicine, many powerful groups have figured out that they make lots more money just treating our symptoms with prescription drugs and mega-buck surgeries.
* Food companies continue to ‘invent’ foods that are supposed to make us thin and healthy, but then we discover that those ‘secret ingredients’ are actually making us sicker and fatter. [Remember those sugar-free cookies ... loaded with fats to make them tastier? And the additives in diet soda that make us crave more sugar?]
* Little is truly done to improve the environment – okay, there were a few exceptions like lower smog indices for many cities compared to decades ago – but even our drinking water continues to be laden with harmful chemicals like chlorine.
The only way to stop this is to educate ourselves about the alternatives, become informed consumers and take responsibility for our own well-being.
