How constipation effects your colon function and colon health.

If solving the problem of constipation were merely a case of washing out loose material lying free inside any part of the colon, it would not be too great a difficulty to clear up the situation.

A high enema would most likely be sufficient to take care of its removal. However, it is not so simple to dispose of this problem...

Constipation involves not only the unnecessary retention of feces in the bowel, but also the retention present throughout the first half of the colon, from the cecum to the middle of the transverse colon.

The cecum is found next to the ileocecal valve at the beginning of the colon. The wall of this section of the colon is equipped with sensitive nerves and muscles whose function it is to create wave-like motions — known as peristaltic waves — to propel the contents of the colon from the cecum to the rectum for eventual evacuation. This is a distance of approximately five feet.

Besides the formation of these peristaltic waves, the first half of the colon has two other very important functions. First, it must extract from all the residue coming from the small intestine any available nutritional material which the small intestine was unable to collect.

For this purpose, it mulches the material which passes into it from the small intestine and transfers the liquid and other elements through its walls into the bloodstream. The nutrition which has thus been extracted from the colon is collected by the blood vessels lining the walls of the colon and is carried to the liver for processing.

The other important function of the first half of the colon is to gather from the glands in its walls the intestinal flora needed to lubricate the colon.

Far too many people — professional and laymen — think that enemas and colonic irrigations wash out the intestinal flora and thus deprive the colon of a valuable means of lubrication... This school of thought is utterly false and totally devoid of truth and fact.

Obviously, when the packed accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to fecal encrustation, it is not possible for the lining of the colon to function normally, and the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora or lubrication. Such lack of lubrication only serves to intensify a state of constipation and to generate toxemia.

It is estimated that 200 million people are infected by intestinal parasites.

This fecal encrustation interferes with — if it does not actually prevent — the infusion of the necessary intestinal flora for colon lubrication, the formation of peristaltic waves for evacuation purposes, and the absorption and use of the additional nutritional elements present in the waste residue coming into the colon from the small intestine.

It does not require much imagination to perceive that the adhesive quality of the feces in the colon is readily susceptible to creating a coating on the inside of the lining or wall of the colon, resembling a layer of plaster in its consistency. It is equally obvious that such a coating... in preventing the normal functioning of the colon... has the insidious effect of becoming a generator of toxicity, to the detriment of health, happiness and longevity.

When the bowel is toxic it can harbor an amazing variety of very harmful bacteria and parasites. It's interesting to note that worms outrank cancer as man's deadliest enemy on a world-wide basis... and it is estimated that 200 million people are infected by these intestinal parasites.

These worms range in size from microscopic single-celled animals to twenty-foot-long tapeworms! These parasites kill more people annually than does cancer. One in four people in the world today are infected by roundworms... And the United States is not immune to these parasites. The number of parasite cases has increased in the past few years.

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.
