The Benefits Of A Clean Colon

Aug 3, 2008
Many serious illnesses and diseases start in the colon. That's not surprising considering the nature of the place. However to prevent their health from becoming a crap-shoot, people have started paying more attention to this underappreciated, yet essential organ and taking more control over their overall wellness.

Many people wonder what it means to have a dirty colon. Seriously, isn't it supposed to be full of...? Well, you know. The short answer is yes. Unfortunately because of pollutants and other artificial elements that we intake daily, our colons are usually layered with poisonous, toxic materials and heavy metals that don't belong there. We humans can take in these toxic materials a number of ways such as breathing polluted air or frequently eating food which contains preservatives, artificial ingredients and pesticides. Think of all the fast food, non-organic produce and "fruit drinks" containing artificial colors or sweeteners that you may have ingested just this week or this year, never mind over the course of your life. The residue of all those unhealthy choices is still rotting inside your body, and it's having a bigger effect than you think.

All those impurities cause our colons to produce a type of mucus called Mucoid Plaque in order to protect itself. Unfortunately, this mucus can prevent our bodies from digesting properly, and cause serious health issues ranging from constipation and a sluggish feeling, to colon cancer.

The Mucoid Plaque can prevent essential vitamins and minerals to enter our bloodstream and over time, the plaque build up can be the cause of bowel irritation which leads to diarrhea, headaches, joint pain and could possibly promote diseases such as Diverticulosis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Crohn's Disease. Not to mention the fact that when our digestive tracts don't work properly it can make us feel sluggish and cause weight gain. Over long periods of time, people can even develop sensitivities or intolerances for certain kinds of food.

There are many all natural supplements available to cleanse the colon and promote colon health. These are usually available in the form of a powder or wafer. Individuals should drink lots of water before, during and after the process. Don't be concerned about bloating since once your colon is cleansed you won't retain water the way you used to. The whole process shouldn't take more than fifteen days, and can be repeated up to twice a year.

Cleansing your colon restores balance to your entire body. Once your colon has been cleansed you should feel more energized. Many people experience relief from symptoms and illnesses such as migraines and anxiety and various aches and pains. Other side effects of a clean colon can include improved overall skin condition, less water retention, fresher breath, improved vision, better memory, less bloating and gas, and a new tolerance for foods that individuals may not have been able to eat previously.

With all the benefits that proper colon care and cleansing have to offer, it is certainly worth researching at the very least. If you think it's worth a second look then be sure to find cleansing supplements that are all natural, preferably a psyllium or psyllimax based formula, offer some kind of proof of its effectiveness and a money-back guarantee. These are just a few ways to ensure that you are getting the safest and most effective product possible for your body.
