Is It Time to Cleanse Your Colon?

If you had too many holiday treats, fatty foods, and cheeseballs, fear not!  It’s a New Year. You can hit the reset button from the inside out.

One study showed that people gain weight between October and December and another one to three pounds between Christmas and New Year. About half the weight was lost quickly, but the other half hung around for a while. Another study showed that though the weight gain was smaller for those in that study, people never lost the holiday weight they gained. You need a plan so that doesn’t happen to you.

But it isn’t just weight gain that is of concern. Sugar, fat, and alcohol damage the body in more ways that one. Studies show that alcohol and sugar contribute to fatty liver disease. Other studies show that sugar is as addictive as cocaine. No wonder we find it hard to stop eating sweets once we start. And according to a study published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, eating too much animal fat may damage your hypothalamus, the area of your brain that regulates energy balance.

It’s time to flush your system. Your body needs to get rid of the leftover junk stored throughout your body from all the unhealthy food you’ve eaten so you can be healthy and full of life again. Many people especially gain belly fat during the holidays. But some of it may not actually be fat, but rather bloating and some toxic sludge in the colon. You can cleanse your colon of the bloating and rubber tire type of plaque that causes it to protrude with a cleansing fast.

Eating overly cooked food, fried food, junk food, spoiled food, refined foods, or sweets like cookies, chocolate, and ice cream, drinking coffee and alcohol, or taking drugs (prescription or recreational) can stimulate mucus secretion throughout the entire alimentary canal. This is normal; it’s the body’s natural way of protecting itself against the occasional encounter with spoiled or irritating food. But when we ingest these substances everyday, and for some people almost every meal, mucus and waste build up on the intestinal wall like crud builds up in the bathroom pipes. Pancreatic juices help to digest food and cleanse mucus from the intestines. However, continual poor food choices lead to constant mucus secretion, and the digestive juices cannot breakdown and eliminate all this overload of waste.

Mucous and waste buildup can interfere with nutrient absorption because it forms a hard, rubbery kind of layer in the intestinal tract.  I was skeptical about this until I tried an intestinal cleanse program a number of years ago.  I saw firsthand the truth of what I’d read.

Did you know that 95% of absorption of nutrients occurs in the small intestine.  If it’s coated with this plaque, you’re not going to be absorbing a significant portion of the nutrients you eat. Also, this mucous and waste build up provides a hiding place and breeding ground for Candida albicans, and parasites. I struggled with parasites and candidiasis for years, until I discovered the effectiveness of intestinal detoxification using the Parasite Cleanse Kit  and the Colon Cleanse Kit.

As intestinal waste builds up, motility becomes less effective and material takes longer to pass through the digestive tract, which is called constipation. The longer the “transit time,” the longer the toxic waste matter sits in our bowel, which allows it to putrefy, ferment forming gases, and possibly be reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste decaying in your colon at all times.

Disease usually begins with a toxic bowel. Those having fewer bowel movements are harboring a potentially fertile breeding ground for serious diseases such as cancer. Infrequent or poor quality bowel movements over an extended period of time may be very destructive to your health. It’s not hard to see why a clean intestinal tract is so important to good health. An intestinal cleanse program will help you reduce waste buildup in the intestinal tract and allow for more efficient absorption of nutrients.
