The Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain, comprised of 57 leading physicians, reported: "Death begins in the colon." They concluded that nearly every contemporary chronic disease is related to poisons in the colon.
In order to have good health, we must have good blood; for the blood is the current of life. Clean blood is a first essential for health of body and mind. Clean blood is impossible without a clean colon. The impurities of the body, if not allowed to escape, are taken back into the blood and forced upon the internal organs. Nature, to relieve herself of poisonous impurities, makes an effort to free the system.
"If the colon is not working properly, toxins must exit the body through other routes: the kidneys, the skin, the breath. Many of these patients have bad halitosis, body odor, etc. When a person becomes ill from colon disease, he or she may develop a variety of symptoms, including headaches, muscle aches, fatigue, autoimmune diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, or cardiovascular disease." William L. Cowden, M.D., internist, classical specialist in internal medicine cardiologist.
The Functions Of The Colon
1) Undigested Food residues, small amounts of Fat, secretions from the Stomach, Liver, Pancreas, Intestinal Wall and Bacteria are compressed in the Large Intestine into Feces.
2) Water is absorbed into the bloodstream from the Colon and is excreted as urine.
3) The Colon therefore acts as the sewage disposal system of the body
4) Undigested food should not stay longer in the colon. Why? “All food that enters the mouth must leave the rectum within 16 hours, otherwise, damaging putrefaction begins.”

Herbs That Are Great For A Colon Cleanse
- Senna leaf tea
- Cascara sagrada and many others
- Orderly daily habits – Create a cleansing and rebuilding program for your digestive tract.
- Stop overeating! Always leave the table feeling like you could eat more.
- Properly combined foods. Eat whole, unprocessed, chemical-free food.
- Eat at regular times.
- Give up all stimulants.
- Get proper rest and sleep.
- Chew food thoroughly. Hint: if you find whole corn niblets in your stool, you're not chewing enough!!
- Do not eat unless you are quiet and content.
- Exercise is a must!
- No straining of stool.
- A four to ten inch elevated object, such as a footstool or pillow, should be placed in front of the toilet for you to rest your feet on while sitting for a bowel movement. This allows for a more natural squatting position (better pelvic position) for elimination.
- Massage abdomen 10 minutes morning and night and prior to movement (tennis ball might help).
- Answer nature’s call after every meal. A person should go to the washroom twenty to thirty minutes after eating a meal even if they do not feel like they have to, in order to establish a regular bowel habit.

Laxative Type Foods
Vegetables - celery, cabbage, leeks, spring greens, onions, kale, parsnips, brussel sprouts, beets, spinach, carrots, cauliflower, summer greens, lettuce, red and green peppers, endive, watercress, and chicory.
Fruits – apples, pears, tomatoes, raspberries, black currants, grapes, oranges, pineapple, grapefruit, melon, raisins, figs. Fruits can be a lifesaver in getting rid of constipation and increasing the intestinal transit time; however, dried fruit can be part of a gas problem. Always soak dried fruit in water over a night.
