Why Is Colon Cleansing So Important?

Oct 7, 2007
Colon Cleansing is so vital because the colon is the 'sewage system' of the body. The colon deals with the most toxic excretions of the body. As such it is essential that the colon works well so that these excretions are removed in a timely way.

Colon Cleansing And Dr John Christopher
Brilliant herbalist and naturopath, Dr John Christopher, said: "Death begins in the colon". This was because he had seen many cases where improving bowel function had changed a health situation from very bad to very good.

Dr Christopher recommended a herbal formula based on Cascara Sagrada (Rhamnus purshiana) plus 7 or 8 other herbs (the precise formulation can vary slightly). This formula has been copied by many others because it is so effective. The main benefit is that it will produce 3 bowel movements a day -- as often as you eat -- for most people, even when this has previously been a real problem to achieve. Many, many people swear by this formula.

Signs Of Good Colon Function
If the colon is working well, we see:
- Regular, bowel movements 3 times a day (or as often as you eat)
- Easily passed, well formed (not loose) stools
- No urgency
- Abdominal comfort -- not lots of gurgling or aching

To maintain these features of a healthy bowel it can be helpful to follow a colon cleansing programme which includes the Dr Christopher formula mentioned above or a similar variation. This might be called 'cascara compound' or a similar name. A good length for a Colon Cleansing programme could be 3 months or so.

Additional Helpful Measures For Colon Cleansing
However, other lifestyle measures are also important to good bowel function, and so when Colon Cleansing it is important to pay attention to these factors too. This is where a comprehensive 'colon cleansing programme', including both herbal support and lifestyle recommendations is often so valuable. These extra factors include a good diet, plenty of exercise and sufficient relaxation.
