What is colon cleansing?

Colon cleansing is a detoxification process. Toxicity occurs in our bodies when we take in more than we can utilize and eliminate. Toxic intake includes food, emotions, or mental stress. Colon cleansing is the process of clearing stored toxins, emotions, and stress from the body's tissues.

The elimination of waste is one of the three essential functions of the following life sustaining functions:

  • Building tissue from food
  • Balance and maintenance
  • Proper elimination of waste

When we remove our toxic load we become lighter in every sense. We are more responsive to our body's needs and open to change including overcoming our addictions, cravings, and abusive habits. It may revitalize natural functions, empower new lifestyle choices, and promote true healing.

Understanding Your Colon

The colon is a muscular tube approximately 5 feet long. It is lined with tender tissue like the inside of your cheeks. The lining contains glands like saliva glands that secrete lubrication, allowing smooth passage of stool. The muscles on the outer wall of the colon create wave-like contractions (peristalsis) which move the stool along.

Stuck into and living within the lubricating mucous of the colon lining is a great abundance of beneficial bacteria. This functions to neutralize, dissipate, and prevent a toxic condition from developing in the colon.

In a healthy body, stool should pass through the GI tract in about 24 hours. Ideally, one should have as many bowel movements per day as meals. Rushing through our day overrides our body's normal reflex to defecate after eating. Failure to eliminate stool in a timely fashion affects the balance of bacteria and leads to re-absorption of waste products that should have been passed out of the body. These reabsorbed wastes can poison the intestine and the rest of the body.

Historically, colon cleansing using water has been recognized as a valuable practice in maintaining and regaining health. Colon cleansing existed since at least 1500 B.C.E. as recorded in ancient medical documents.
