What's the Big Stink?
Nowadays few are aware of eliminatory malfunctions, much less of colonic hygiene.
Because of this lack of awareness and understanding of the proper functioning of the colon, colon malfunction is the single most prevalent health problem today. Although most people are very hygienically oriented, expecting spotless clothes, scrupulously clean bodies, bleached teeth and almost sanitary houses, they walk in cesspools due to their ignorance and misunderstanding of what real filth is. If they had any idea what this filth is doing to their health and mental abilities and were concerned enough about the situation to cleanse their colons often, disease in this country would become a rare thing.
Many find the idea of internal cleansing hard to accept, although cleaning the other end of the digestive tube several times a day does not seem offensive to them. Such attention to the putrid state of the colon seems unthinkable. Regular internal cleansing allows us to come into a close, intimate relationship with this most mysterious part of our body, and we learn a lot about ourselves, our health, our diet, our energy level and our internal aware- ness. Before anyone can truly appreciate what toxicity of the colon can mean for health, it is necessary to have a clear picture of the colon itself and some understanding of its proper functioning.
The colon is almost as long as a person is tall, somewhere between five and six feet. The colon begins on the right side of the body just below the waist. At this point, the small intestine ends and empties its chyme, liquid digested material, into the large intestine, the colon. From here, the colon moves upward and is actually referred to as the ascending colon as it travels up. When the colon reaches the height of the liver, it turns to the left and starts its path across the midsection. This part of the colon is called the transverse colon. Upon reaching the left side of the body, around the area of the spleen, the colon turns downward toward the rectum and anus.
This final section is called the descending colon. In a properly functioning digestive system, spent food or chyme, is emptied into the colon within a few hours after eating. The involuntary muscles of the lower digestive tract then begin their peristaltic action, which moves the chyme/chyle upwards through the ascending colon while absorbing fluids from the liquid mass. Bacteria are usually absent in the small intestine because of the rapidity of the digestive process, in the case of fruits and vegetables, at least, and the destructive nature of digestive juices abound in the large intestine. As the waste passes through the transverse colon, bacterial action becomes rampant.
In a normally functioning colon, the fecal waste is generally only in the colon for a few hours, but in an abnormally functioning colon, waste can become encrusted along the side walls and remain for many years. Because of this encrustation, toxin levels become very great. You see, the entire mucosal lining of the alimentary canal is supposed to slough off and replace itself every three to five days. But in most people over 12 years of age in the United States, it can be weeks and even months, and in some people, not at all.
When the diet consists mostly of foods other than fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains, bacteria can also become prolific in the small intestine as well. And the toxic action begins much sooner and is fully underway by the time the chyme reaches the colon. Depending on many factors, including type of diet, proper functioning of the involuntary muscular system, etc., the level of toxins in the body associated with this bacterial action in rotting fecal waste can increase alarmingly. In a healthy system, transit time through the colon can vary between two to eight hours.
Our 14 Day Cleanse helps clear the colon of old, hardened, waste material and harmful toxins resulting in a greatly improved digestive system. This program will have you feeling lighter, cleaner and completely pumped to continue a healthier life!
