A healthy colon is vital for maintaining good health. When the colon is functioning properly, it will be able to remove the harmful toxins from the body and improve one’s overall health.
Modern science has shown that Hippocrates was correct. Namely, he said “Death begins in the colon”, (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC).
According to the “National Institute of Health” – 4.5 million American suffer from constipation all or most of the time. Some of the problems are relatively minor like acne, sleepiness, and headaches, but many others are some very serious diseases such as:
- Acid Reflux;
- Crohn’s Disease;
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Colon issues are known to lead to colostomy surgery for more than 100,000 people each year. Some Healthcare professionals say that for a healthy colon, it takes less than 24 hours for food to transit through our body. But with modern eating habits the transit time slows down to 70 hours. This results in a toxic colon and up to 30 pounds of accumulated waste. As a result, up to 80% of disease and discomfort people suffer may be related to toxic colons.
Note: One part of the problem is that diets today lack natural fibers and enzymes and have too much-refined sugar.
