In such situations our intestines will build up "plaque" and will become weak, irritated and congested - becoming a breeding place for bacteria and eventually leads to a further disruption of other digestive functions.
The large intestines absorbs minerals and water and when the membranes of the intestines are lined with plaque, it cannot assimilate and absorb minerals. We can take as many supplements as we want - but if our colon is congested it won't do us any good.
Taken from a colon cleansing therapists site - it states, "The average person, by the time they are 30 years old, in America, has between 10 to 15 pounds of hard compacted fecal matter in their bowel. Often times much of this matter is over 10 years old."
I believe that cleansing our bodies is one of the first and most important things we can do for our bodies to prolong our lives and prevent diseases.
A colon cleanse should be done once every 6 months to at least once a year and is the first of a few "inner" body cleanses that should be done to achieve optimum health. Here are some of the best colon cleansing methods.
Colonic Irrigation. (aka colon hydrotherapy) This can be accomplished by going to a health specialist who specializes in such a practice. (Elizabeth King is one great resource for this.) This method is done by using purified water to gently cleanse your colon where old deposits of fecal matter are loosened, detach from the colon wall, and are removed with water. (With Elizabeth you do this in your own privacy - she's simply there to assist if you need the help.)
