With Colon cancer being the #2 cause of death in the US and 100,000 people having their colon removed annually, it is nothing to be hush hush about. The colon or large intestine is a tube-like muscular organ that eliminates fecal material through wave-like motions known as peristalsis. It is approximately 5 ½ feet long and 2 inches in diameter and is a vital part of your digestive system.
Your colon absorbs about 10% of your nutrients. It is home to things that actually
aid in producing B vitamins and are an
integral part of your immune system. And if
that is not enough, all the blood in your
body goes through the colon before going
to other organs!
However, the major function of the colon is the formation and elimination of feces. Feces consists of undigested food residues, intestinal epithelium, mucus, bacteria, toxins and a large amount of water.
If a person easts 3 times a day, they should have 3 bowel movements a day - within 1
hour of eating. If you only go once a day, where are the other meals going? When colon function is sluggish, toxins are forced into the blood and circulate to every organ of the body. This stresses the immune system and can contribute to health problems and degenerative disease.
Well, this guy actually is a good guy. He is a “mucosal gland” in
the intestine and he aids
in lubricating and in “cleaning up” around the intestine. Unfortunately, most people carry
around way too much waste and their colons are not very clean. He has a hard time doing his job properly!
can live in your GI Tract and keep harmful
bacteria and viruses in check.
Probiotics can't live in a toxic environment. Anti-biotics, Anti-Depressants, Anti-Acids
(notice a pattern here?) Pain killers, Birth Control, and Coffee, kill friendly bacteria
making it easy for the bad bacteria to take over. Things like sugar, dairy and yeast, feed the bad bacteria. (Please see your health care practitioner before going off any medications.)
Along with feces, mucus and microbes, we can have some unwanted
According to Dr. Myron G. Shultz, Director of Parasitic Diseases at the CDC in Atlanta, GA, “1 out of 6 Americans have parasitic diseases”. Peter Weina, Chief of Pathology, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research said “we have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the US, it's just not being identified”.
All the toxins and 'dead' processed foods lead to poor digestion causing a
toxic build-up in the body, including the colon. This toxic waste material in
the colon then frequently turns into - in the words of National Geographic -
Every living thing has at least one parasite that lives inside or on it,
and many, including humans, have far more.
...Scientists...are only just
beginning to discover exactly how powerful these hidden inhabitants can be,
but their research is pointing to a remarkable possibility:The notion that tiny creatures we've largely taken for granted are
such a dominant force is immensely disturbing.
..kept harmonized by chemical signals. If an organism can
control those signals - an organism like a parasite - then it can control us. And therein lies the peculiar and precise horror of parasites."
The combination of environmental toxins, an unhealthy diet and parasites
poses a grave danger to humans. , reported National Geographic in its
award-winning documentary, The Body Snatchers.
- Consume our nutrients and prevent our bodies nutrient absorption
(they get “first
dibs” on our food)
- Produce toxic substances harmful to the body (they “poop” in our bodies -
- Can perforate, erode, damage, embed and block organs.
- Destroy our body's cells faster than regeneration
- Irritate tissues inducing inflammatory response
- Depress immune system functioning and lead to immune system exhaustion.
I have posted the above pictures and information because most of my clients just don't believe “they” could have a parasitic infection. They easily grasp and apply the concept of de-worming their dogs and cats, but not themselves. Parasites know NO economic or social boundaries and they are easier to transmit than VD. Good Hygienic habits and a healthy GI Tract are key to keeping parasites under control, and ,
If you think you might have a parasitic infection, please check with your health care practitioner.
