How important is a healthy colon (large intestine)?

The digestive tract, also known as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, starts at the mouth, continues to the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon) and the rectum and ends at the anus.  The entire system – from mouth to anus – is about 30 feet (9 meters) long

The food we eat needs to be digested properly and assimilated.  In order to enjoy good health, it is extremely important that the colon be clean and free from toxins.  Due to the American diet these days,  dairy products, meats, breads, pastas, sugar,  salt, etc.,  begin to accumulate a thick coating on the walls of the colon.  Consuming these foods is what often begins the problems in the colon.

The build-up on the colon wall prevents food from being assimilated properly.  It also makes the colon sluggish thus allowing poisons of fermentation and putrefaction to accumulate and become absorbed into the bloodstream, lymphatic system and the nervous system.  The neglected accumulation of this waste can result in illnesses such as colitis, colon cancer,  crohns disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, allergies, skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema, hemorrhoids, migraines, respiratory and obesity problems.  The lymphatic system, kidneys, liver and other organs cannot work properly when the colon is so unhealthy.

Colon therapy (colonic irrigation) is a great way to cleanse the colon and prevent the build-up of fecal matter that can accumulate on the colon wall.  It is safe and effective.
