Colonic Irrigation and Colon Cleansing:
A first step towards total health
Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., a nutritionist and author of the book entitled, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management, writes the following regarding the importance of maintaining optimal health, through the care of one's lower bowel (colon)...
"Laxatives tire out the bowel muscle by keeping it consistently working. Without rest, it will soon fail. Even used sparingly and in an emergency, these substances should be used with great caution, if at all. They are essentially poisons and irritants. They contribute nothing to the normal, or natural processes of the bowels, and they only remove the new waste matter."
Dr. Jensen continues, "When we clean out the bowel and release all of this old, rotting material, there will be a lessening of gas, pain and autointoxication taking place."
Autointoxication is literally a process of self-poisoning.
Dr. Jensen believes, "...that this toxic material, decaying away in the sigmoid colon, is a good place for degenerative diseases to get started."
The colon may be one of the most abused organs in the human body.
Millions of Americans now suffer from digestive disorders and elimination problems, which allow metabolic waste material to remain trapped in their colon for months sometimes even years. This putrefying fecal waste, is not just harmful, but it can lead to autointoxication, and the inability to absorb vital minerals and nutrients.
However, when you cleanse your colon with colonics, you give your body an opportunity to cleanse all its systems. This body cleansing process can be facilitated by:
Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the founder of the Kellogg's Corn Flakes cereal company, and a practicing surgeon, believed that an improperly functioning bowel could be the root cause of many health problems. His bran cereal was created to provide fiber to help promote a well functioning colon.
After having performed over 20,000 colon surgeries, Dr. Kellogg observed that he had, "...never seen a normal healthy American colon. Common sense tells us that if we retain the contents of our colon the result will be disfigurement and disease of the colon. Since newly formed cancer cells escape destruction by the immune system due to the effects of autointoxication, we are literally poisoning ourselves into illness when the bowel evacuation is deficient."
Dr. Norman Walker, author of the book Colon Health, notes the word, "...Constipation, is derived from the Latin word constipatus which being translated means, "to press or crowd together, to pack, to cram."
Surely common sense suggests that cleansing ones colon can have substantial health benefits, and is both practical and reasonable, considering our diets are mostly comprised of devitalized, processed and refined foods.
As Dr. Walker points out, "The very best of diets, can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption."
Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?
We are often asked, Do you use an intestinal colon cleanser to help prepare for colon therapy... to relieve constipation or to maintain good colon health?
Yes we do!
We've tried many different colon cleansers over the years and found that colon cleansing success is dependent on pre-existing colon health and the amount of water you consume on a daily basis. Even though using a colon cleanse product may not be appropriate for people with particularly sensitive or diseased colons...
For the vast majority there are exceptionally good reasons to use an all natural colon cleanser!
