|Your colon or large intestine is a hollow, tube like organ made up of muscle structure – that moves toxic materials along by wavelike motions known as peristaltic action.
Healthy Colon From the cecum – the beginning of the large bowel – to the rectum, it is approximately five to five and a half feet long. When a person is constipated the walls of the colon are generally packed or lined with accumulated feces from extended periods of intestinal overloading due to the avoidance of responding to the call of nature immediately. The colon can neither absorb nor eliminate properly in this condition. When wastes from the blood arrive at the inner wall of the colon the hardened feces prevent their passage through this wall. Since blood circulates through every organ in the body and reaches every cell in the body, toxins in the blood contaminate the entire body. To properly cleanse the body tissue we must start by a thorough cleansing of the bowel. It took time to pollute our bodies to the point of disease, so it will take time to reverse the process through a series of body cleansings.
Typical Western Diet Colon The natural immune system can only be built up in a clean body, a body with a minimal amount of accumulated toxic material. The degree to which the colon is inhabited by harmful bacteria, parasites and other dangerous organisms varies greatly among individuals.
