What is Colon cleansing? Lately colon cleansing is recommended by more and more health professionals as a way to start a good weight loss diet. A little known fact about the colon and Colon Cleansing. Did you know that an average person can retain up to 10 to 30 pounds of fecal matter in their lifetime. Recent studies have shown that a healthy person does not eliminate everything he/she eats, in fact certain foods like beef (especially red meat), and lamb and pork stay in the colon until it eventually rots (somewhere between 7 and 25 days). This leads to your body absorbing dangerous toxins, resulting in systemic intoxication (poisoning). Just think about how animals are raised today for the food industry. Steroids, Antibiotics, and Pesticides are to be found in almost any meat nowadays. Many researchers & professional nutritionists believe that this toxicity can eventually lead to more serious disorders and illnesses, such as weight problems, heart burn, hair loss, body odor, frequent colds, fungal infections, and etc. If left untreated it can also lead to worse conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, Chrons disease, colitis, and maybe even colon cancer. You might have heard it on MSNBC or other TV stations. “Colon cancer is the number two cause of cancer death for both men and women combined.”
But is colon cleansing really safe and what exactly is involved? Preserving the colon’s health is important for many reasons. When properly done, colon cleansing has proven to be very safe, especially with new products on the market. In the “old days” Enemas were the only answer to colon cleansing. Unfortunately, Enemas are also to blame for many safety concerns over colon cleansing. Enemas typically cleanse only the lower 25% of the colon. That leaves about seventy-five percent of the large intestine untreated. As you can see this procedure doesn’t provide the same effectiveness as modern colon hydrotherapy.
Colon irrigation does not have any direct side effects. Still, the process of eliminating toxins can cause some minor intestinal problems – causing cold or flu like symptoms (which may include nausea, headaches, and dizziness). Usually these symptoms are of very short time and will ultimately reverse itself. Even better, soon after you will feel increased energy and your well-being increases dramatically. Say Good-Bye to bloating and constipation.
