Is A Toxic Colon Making You Sick?

Your toxic colon could be making you sick. And you’re not alone because millions of people are experiencing various signs of gastrointestinal health problems including persistent diarrhea or constipation.

Depending on your daily diet, amount of daily stress and number of pounds you are overweight, your colon could be impacted with months old feces and mucous containing parasites, bacteria, candida yeast and other pathogenic waste.

The problems start with the typical fast and frozen food American diet including refined flour, processed meat, fat, sugar, alcohol, chemical preservatives which results in poor elimination. Your body’s five main systems for eliminating metabolic waste include the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin.

And should the colon become over burdened, so it fails to properly process and eliminate incoming waste, the other purification organs may likewise be effected.

Over time there can be a build up of hardened feces combined with gut mucosa that becomes lodged in diverticular pockets along the walls of the colon…

The average person with an unbalanced diet and lifestyle may have 5, 10 or 20 pounds of accumulated waste matter in their colon.

As you might imagine this becomes the perfect breeding environment for all manor of harmful bacteria and toxins, which may be absorbed via the blood and deposited throughout your body’s tissues, organs and cells.

This is when sickness, coming in main different forms, can start to effect your general overall health and lifestyle.

The first indication of poor digestive health and specifically colon ill-health is often recurring bouts of constipation or diarrhea, and in some cases like Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the occurrence of both conditions in alteration. As reported by “More than 4 million Americans have frequent constipation, accounting for 2.5 million physician visits a year. Those reporting constipation most often are women and adults ages 65 and older.”

And women may have a higher incidence of constipation particularly, “Pregnant women may have constipation… (before and) following childbirth or surgery.”

When you have frequent constipation the solution is not to run to your local drug store to buy an over-the-counter laxative. Remember that laxatives, while the may give you temporary relief, are not addressing the underlying body imbalance. Nevertheless, each year Americans spend some $725 million on various kinds of laxative products. Now that’s a sign of a very serious health problem.

And the situation for diarrhea suffers can be even worse, with some cases resulting in death. It doesn’t matter how old you are, anyone can get diarrhea. It’s not uncommon when traveling in undeveloped countries, due to inadequate water purification systems, and poor food preparation and handling. The number of Americans getting at least one incidence of diarrhea in a year could be 1 in 6, or in the order of tens of millions of cases per year. Children may experience two or more episodes per year ranging from mild to acute in severity.

Diarrhea is a condition where consumed water and metabolic fluid passes too quickly through the gastrointestinal tract such that the colon (large intestine), does not properly re-absorb water from processed metabolic waste. In severe and extended cases of diarrhea this condition can result in dehydration. Diarrhea caused deaths occur predominately among the very young and the elderly who may become critically ill even from a moderate case of dehydration.

The benefits of colon hydrotherapy and the problems associated with colon toxicity are cited by Rheumatologist Arthur E. Brawer, MD who states, “Colon hydrotherapy eliminates from the bowel the accumulated waste material which may get absorbed. If this absorption takes place, it overwhelms the other purification organs such as the liver, the kidneys, the skin, and the lungs. The toxin deposition which becomes lodged throughout the body’s tissues and cells becomes capable of triggering a variety of illnesses, and there’s lots of them.”
