Colon Cleansing

Of all the places you've read about, where do you think is the most toxic place on earth? The answer may be... in your colon. The cumulative effect of eating on-the-run and consuming a typical low-fiber "Western Diet" of greasy pizza, slabs of red meats, fried chicken, sugary desserts and over-processed packaged foods may ultimately slow down the digestive process and cause your body to eliminate waste more slowly.

And if waste is permitted to sit too long in the colon, certain toxins may build up and may eventually be reabsorbed back into the body.

Toxic Build-Up
We expose ourselves to thousands of environmental toxins and chemicals every day. Dumping of industrial chemicals has infected the air we breathe, our food and water supply. Toxic build up also occurs through consuming too much processed foods, and the use of some medications.

The combination of environmental toxins and an unhealthy diet poses all kinds of danger to human health. Eliminating these toxins and chemicals from our body may also pose a problem. Namely, our bodies may dispose of these toxins more slowly than is desirable. This may result in toxic overload, with accompanying symptoms.

What are the symptoms?
The most common symptom of toxic overload is probably fatigue. Other common symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Mental confusion
  • Gastrointestinal and/or cardiovascular irregularities
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Allergic reactions including hives, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing and coughing

If waste matter is removed regularly from our system, this will also promote the removal of many toxins since the body often dumps them into the intestins after processing them in the liver.

Why Use a Colon Cleanser
Colon cleansers provide a significant amount of fiber which helps actively promote the transit and removal of fecal material from our intestines. This may result in bowel regularity, and will certainly help to eliminate excess toxins. Herbal cleansers work gently on your digestive system. These are safe and effective when used according to directions, and help the body to regulate natural bowel performance.

Benefits of Waste Removal
When your digestive system is more regular, this may also help your body to absorb nutrients better. It is also likely that there will be less toxic build-up in the body. Your digestion may also improve, as may your energy levels. Studies have shown that when your bowels are working regularly to eliminate waste from your body it can be an important part of a total health care program.
