Overcoming Constipation and Colon Toxicity
by Rudy Silva, NC
Having regular constipation can lead to some serious illnesses... Fecal matter should move through your colon easily and in a reasonable time subsequent to eating a regular meal. But when fecal matter remains in your colon for days, your colon becomes toxic and spreads this toxicity into every part of your body.
In the bloodstream, these toxins interfere with the deliver of oxygen to the cells and tissues of your body. If you have to strain and squeeze to have a bowel movement, you can damage the tissues in the lower part of your colon and the blood vessels in your legs.
Over 90 years ago or more, doctors knew about the importance of maintaining a clean colon... In 1908 Eli Metchnifoff, director of the Pasteur Institute, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine. His research showed that pathogenic colon bacteria bad bacteria producing toxic secretions and byproducts could act to slowly poison of the entire body.
Metchnifoff believed that toxic matter coming from your colon was responsible for every degenerating disease. His belief was so strong that he suggested that man's life-span was certainly cut in half when his colon was neglected and allowed to have excessive toxic producing bacteria.
In 1931 Dr. Joseph H. Greer, was telling his patients what to do to end constipation and how to prevent it. Today, nutritionists and other health practitioners are telling their clients the same thing.
In his small book, The Drugless Road to Perfect Health, 1931, Joseph H. Greer, M.D. reminded his patients, "You must have 'roughage' to make the bowels move freely. Concentrated food (processed foods) and constipation go hand in hand, (and) then pills (laxatives) are used. More constipation and more pills, it is a vicious circle with bad results. Don't be afraid of cracked wheat, cornmeal, cut oats, raw cabbage, onions and celery. They are far better than refined flour and the package foods that flood the market. They may save some labor in the kitchen, but they produce constipation."
Today, it is well accepted by nutritionists, Naturopathic doctors, and other alternative medicine practitioners, that constipation is a signal that cannot be ignored and your colon function must be kept efficient and well functioning. To ignore constipation for long periods of time can lead to some serious illnesses. Mostly likely you will not live to be a ripe old age and if you do it will be with some disability.
Constipation is a symptom you cannot ignore - even if it only occurs occasionally - because it can lead to slow poisoning of your entire body.
Unfortunately, some uninformed doctors refuse to believe that constipation can cause other parts of your body to become weaken and unable to perform their normal function. You can still find Internet articles, anatomy books, and health books suggesting that having a bowel movement once in 3 days or more is normal!
Bowel regularity means exactly that... A normal bowel movement after each main meal.
Don't wait for disease to take hold of your body, so doctors see you're ill. Take responsibility for your health now... And don't let constipation become a reoccurring condition.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?
Frequently we are asked, Do you use a natural intestinal colon cleanser to 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 the effectiveness of each varies greatly. Colon cleansing success is dependent on pre-existing colon health and the amount of water you consume on a daily basis. The use of a colon cleanse may not be appropriate for those with particularly sensitive or diseased colons... But for most people, there are exceptionally good reasons to use an all natural colon cleanser!
