If you have reason to suspect your colon is not working properly, you are most likely right.
You're undoubtedly aware of any ongoing problems with constipation, for example. You know when your intestines feel bloated or achy.
When there is a general malaise that you sense comes from these problems.
Did you know that proper colon cleansing can not only alleviate chronic constipation, but headaches, ulcerative colitis and hemorrhoids? Did you know colon cleansing can ultimately help prevent cancer?
Most doctors won't tell you about these facts because they simply don't know them. The AMA is not nutritionist-oriented, it is disease-oriented.
A good preventative plan for colon cleansing and the overall health of your digestive tract, then, is called for. And whose responsibility is it?
Some of the suggestions a doctor is liable to make will overlap with those of the nutritionist, however. For example, drinking lots of water and doing at least 20 minutes of exercise at least three times a week are standard.
Bulk-producing fiber supplements like psyllium husks are also standard to help cleanse the colon and lower bowel.
Nutritionists go deeper. They advocate improving our diets as well as more intense methods of colon cleansing.
The nutritionists tell us over and over to stop eating junk. Do you listen? Why don’t we as a population listen to what these nutritionists have to say? Ridding our diets of processed foods, chemicals, sugar and hydrogenated fats is only the tip of the iceberg. To really get it right requires some extended research.
Colonic irrigation and oxygen-based colon cleansers can actually help melt impacted built-up wastes and carry them away. These processes can actually cleanse your whole system.
When all is said and done, it's your body, your colon and your life always be careful what you put into your body.
