the number one affliction underlying nearly every ailment.

The expression constipation is derived from the Latin word "constipatus" which translated means to press or crowd together, to pack, to cram. Consequently, to be constipated means that the packed accumulation of feces in the bowel makes its evacuation difficult.

However, a state of constipation can also exist when movements of the bowel may seem to be normal... in spite of an accumulation of feces somewhere along the passageways of the colon.

Many health authorities believe that constipation is the number one affliction underlying nearly every ailment... This means that constipation would be the most prevalent ailment affecting the civilized world... It is vital to stress that constipation affects the health of the colon, upon which the health of the body in its entirety depends.

Constipation contributes toward the lowering of body resistance predisposing it to many acute illnesses and the creation of a great many degenerative and chronic processes. Almost every human ailment has been attributed to a malfunctioning colon (i.e., one that cannot perform its normal, regular and efficient functioning).

Intestinal constipation causes cellular constipation... It also increases the workload of the other excretory organs — kidneys, skin, liver, lungs and lymp.

The functioning of these organs becomes depleted and overworked. The cellular metabolism becomes sluggish, repair and growth are delayed, and the ability to eliminate waste materials is lowered. The cells -- instead of being alive and active -- become dead and inactive. This process results in a decline in tissue and organ functional ability.

There are two crimes against nature which civilization indulges in as a daily routine, which may be direct causes of constipation. One is the consumption of devitalized and refined foods which fail to nourish the organs responsible for the evacuation of waste matter. The other which is most prevalent, particularly among young people, but no less so among the older and more mature . . . is neglecting to stop everything we are doing when the urge to evacuate the bowels should drIve us headlong into the bathroom. Bowel movements every two or three days are considered normal and acceptable.

It is my professional opinion -- as also the opinion of many holistic health care professionals -- we should have a bowel movement for every meal that we eat, each and everyday. For example, if we eat three meals per day, we should have three bowel movements per day.

If we are having less than two bowel movements per day, food residues are lying in the colon for more than twelve hours. Consequently, the fecal material in the colon becomes putrefied and fermented. Any nutritional elements present in the fecal matter would pass into the bloodstream as polluted products.

What would otherwise be nutritional, becomes in fact, the beginning of toxemia. Toxemia is a condition in which the blood contains poisonous products which are produced by the growth of pathogenic or disease-producing bacteria. Pimples for example are usually the first indication that toxemia has found its way into the body.

A number of years ago fifty-seven of the leading physicians of Britain met in London and discussed before the Royal Society of Medicine this problem of autointoxication caused by a toxic colon. Autointoxication is defined as "the poisoning of the body, or some part of the body, by toxic matter generated therein."

The following twenty-two (22) poisons were identified as originating in a toxic colon:

 1. Histidine 12. Indoethylamine
 2. Ptomarropine 13. Indican
 3. Botulin 14. Methylgardinine
 4. Phenol 15. Cadaverin
 5. Agamatine 16. Indol
 6. Sulphurretted Hydrogen 17. Cresol
 7. Butyric Acid 18. Pentamethylendiamine
 8. Putrescin 19. Urrobilin
 9. Sulpherroglobine 20. Ammonia
10. Muscarine 21. Methylmercaptan
11. Sepsin 22. Neurin

These are some of the many types of poisons which can be found in a toxic colon. Some of these poisons are highly active and may produce the most detrimental effects — even in very small quantities. In many cases, these toxins can seep out of the colon to poison the rest of the body...

Here are just a few examples of how these toxic poisons can effect your health:

  • Weaken and stress your heart.
  • Go into your skin to cause blemishes and paleness.
  • Psoriasis, liver spots, wrinkles, and other facial conditions.
  • Irritate your lungs and cause foul breath.
  • Go to your brain and disturb mental function and cause senility.
  • Go into your joints and cause pain and stiffness.
  • Go into your muscles and cause weakness and severe fatigue.
  • Rob you of your youth, ruin your health and cause you to become old before your time.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?

Frequently we are asked, “Do you use a natural 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!
