How Can the Toxicity in Colon Affect Our Bodies?

Aug 17, 2007
The concept of cleansing the colon has been there for sometime now. In fact if we go back in time, the very first mention of colon cleansing can be traced as far back as the Egyptian civilization. In fact the Egyptians believed that the root of all physical ailments can be traced back to the colon. So, most of the treatment that they practiced was targeted in getting the colon work properly.

Practitioners of conventional medicine strongly disagree with such a theory. However, what modern practitioners of alternative medicine tend to put across is that even if not all physical ailments can be traced to an unclean colon, a significant number of diseases are caused because of an unclean colon. There are also a number of people who report a remarkable improvement in their health after a colon cleansing.

The concept of cleansing the colon has been there for sometime now. In fact if we go back in time, the very first mention of colon cleansing can be traced as far back as the Egyptian civilization. In fact the Egyptians believed that the root of all physical ailments can be traced back to the colon. So, most of the treatment that they practiced was targeted in getting the colon work properly.

That colon is responsible for a number of diseases is because a lot of waste matter gets accumulated in the colon and when they are not eliminated in time they start producing these toxins which again get absorbed by the bloodstreams running close to the walls of the colon.

If we just look at the local effects of the toxin we will find that they cause considerable amount of irritation and inflammation of the colon. The reaction to these can be diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, headaches, dull eyes, poor skin, spots, aching muscles, joint pains, and depression. But it is not the local effects that we are worried about. The toxins also get circulated to all parts of the body through the blood via the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is there to reach those parts of the body where the blood vessels don't and nourish the cells there. It also kills harmful organisms and acts as a carrier of waste matter. The body can fight against toxins being circulated. But the level to which it can actually put up a resistance has its own limits. After a certain point of time it is forced to give up and the diseases start to creep in.

The toxins are also responsible for the condition of diverticulosis. This is a disease when pouches begin to form on the walls of the colon. The pouches also trap food within it which turn to breeding grounds for harmful bacteria. Diverticulosis can cause fever and lead to acute abdominal pain.
