Is Constipation Making You A Toxic Waste Dump?
by Jane Kriese
The colon is the part of the large intestine extending from the cecum to the rectum. And the most common sign of having a toxic colon is a condition called constipation. An accumulation of waste food byproducts in the colon can lead to constipation, toxic build up, weight gain and low energy.
Constipation results when waste materials move too slowly through the large bowel, resulting in infrequent and/or painful elimination.
This process causes putrefied, nasty materials to stay in the colon too long and old fecal matter starts to harden and stick to the colon. Over 2.5 million North American's suffer from constipation...
And many Americans, as well as many people in western developed countries, may store 5 to 10 pounds of old fecal matter or more in their bodies. Your colon may actually be like a toxic waste dump!
Now, you are probably wondering what causes constipation? Basically, the causes are our lifestyle. We lack fiber and water in our diet, eat junk food, lack of exercise, advanced age and bowel disorders. It may also be the side effects of iron supplements, some drugs or pain killers.
Poor bowel management lies at the root of most peoples health problems. This is because the poisons back up in the system polluting our inner environment. We call this autointoxication or self-poisoning. — Dr. Bernard Jensen DC, PhD.
The following conditions can be related to constipation; allergies, bad breath, foul spelling gas and stools, diarrhea, sluggish elimination, irregular bowel movements, frequent congestion, colds, viruses, frequent headaches, general aches and pains, intolerance to fatty foods, low energy, low back pain, low resistance to infection, needing to sleep a long time, pain in liver or gallbladder, P.M.S., breast soreness, vaginal infection, skin problems, boils, pimples or acne.
Some healers in the natural world have implicated constipation as a contributing factor in the following diseases and disorders:
- Benign tumors
- IBS - Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Spastic bowel
- Ulcerative colitis
- Crohn's disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
Let's face it... This isn't healthy. To rid the body of this condition you need to change your lifestyle and cleanse your body. Remember, you must increase your water and fiber!
Now, is the best time to cleanse your body... Any time we have a lifestyle disease, the first step is to cleanse. Colon cleansing is excellent and very inexpensive. Colon cleanses can be done fairly often, if needed. I recommend two cleanses a year for maintenance of good health. There are also some herbs that help activate the bowel and they are; parsley, black seed, cascara and worm wood.
You might also find relief using Psyllium husk as this contains dietary fiber... Cleansing your colon can remove a lot of toxic poisons from your body and help you assimilate your vitamins and minerals. A better lifestyle will give you a healthy, vibrant body.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?
As colon hydrotherapists we are often 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!
