The colon is among the most important organs in the body and is responsible for removing pounds of waste from the body every day. Our health depends on the proper functioning of the colon, and it’s safe to say that everything will fall apart in the body if this organ isn’t working as it should be.
According to Donna Gates (Body Ecology founder), keeping your digestive system healthy is the most important thing for optimal health. Many organs in the body such as the liver rely on proper colon function to work – if everything is well, both organs will work together to eliminate toxins from the body. The colon receives all the waste from the body as well as water and nutrients which it needs to separate so they can be used by the body. This is a complex process which relies completely on a healthy colon, which makes keeping the organ properly functioning a priority for all of us.
If the colon function is somehow impaired, toxins and bacteria can accumulate in the body, resulting in several health problems. The process of food digestion may take anywhere from 22 to 44 hours, depending on the type of food you eat. Consuming foods which lack fiber and nutrients can take up to 70 hours, which can leave your colon with as much as 20 pounds of waste within. This will result in constipation and irregular bowel movement, which can also become pretty painful over time.
The main symptoms of an intoxicated colon are gasses, constipation, diarrhea, vaginal infections, weakened immune system, mood swings, depression, memory problems, fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, skin rashes, joint pain and sore muscles. Luckily, all this can be relieved with the help of the two remedies you can see below.
