The Truth About Colon Cleansing

September 30, 2009 0 Comments

Our colon is responsible for eliminating toxins from our body, but because of the unhealthy habit of eating foods, our wastes becomes more and more harder and the colon cannot do its function well. Fecal wastes elimination becomes occasional and the absorption of vitamins and nutrients is not done properly making us sick and prone to diseases. Colon cleanser users used products to restore its healthy bowel movement; others use it to aid in their weight loss program.
What lies about colon cleansing? Does our colon really need a cleansing? A healthy colon does not require colon cleansing. Our colon is designed to do what it needs to do-distributing nutrients to our system for body’s utilization and expelling of unwanted waste materials out to the anus. Our intestine is capable of removing solid waste materials; all we need to do is eat variety of fibrous foods like whole wheat grains, vegetables, fruits and beans. Eating more of these will make our colon revive its natural duty of expelling all the wastes inside us. Drinking lots of water is also good for our colon. So we don’t see any need for colon cleansing. That is plainly truth. There are cases when we need to do colon cleanse, like when a person had accidentally swallowed chemical toxins that can accumulate the body, colon cleansing is advice though in certain degree we should consult our doctor before any move of colon cleansing. Colon cleansing is not always helpful and harmless. It can exhaust vital nutrients and doing it in a regular basis may even worsen illnesses like anemia, heart disease and even malnutrition. You have to remember that aside from our colon which cleanses out toxins, we also have our kidney, spleen and liver those also function to clean our body and flushes out toxins. You can see now why colon cleansing is not necessarily used.
You can stop worrying and suffering from all the toxins that is bombarding your mind and body by simply learning how these toxins happen in our body. All of us are exposed in a daily life routine at work, home and the environment and the use of pharmaceutical drugs including colon cleansers. Our eating habits also contributes to the worsening of our system. We should be aware of pollutants around us, the air we breathe, the soil and the water we drink. Scientists’ findings on these polluted world is so alarming on human body. Scientist’s prove that our body cannot do its job of eliminating all the toxins from the chemicals we inhale everyday. Its not the foods that we should be aware of putrefying and giving us toxins. It is the pollutants from the environment that is harmful and causing us toxins. These toxins from the environment accumulate from our cells thus affecting our colon, liver, kidney, spleen and other vital organ. This is the cause of all the diseases we encounter not the fecal matters from our body as this will be expelled naturally from the colon.
Of course I do not say colon cleansing should not be used totally. But if your main reason of using a colon cleanser is because you believe that fecal matters are impacted over the years in the colon, then that reason might be wrong, since our colon can do its job naturally by expelling those wastes inside us. You have to be watchful of  the pollutants from the environment as this causes more harm to our vital organ including the colon. So how would you know if colon cleansing is necessary? If you experience one of the following, tiredness, flatulence and abdominal bloating, impaired digestion, irritability, food cravings, constipation, skin disorder and bad breath. All these symptoms are cause from the environmental pollution and not from impacted colon.
