The colon is one of our body organs that has a very important function. It’s a vital part of our digestive system, so we must take care of it properly.
Dona Gates, the founder of “Body Ecology” claims that maintaining a healthy colon and digestive system is key to strengthening the overall health and ensuring our well-being.
A healthy colon is responsible for the elimination of toxins, the liver, as well as all tissues and cells in our body.
It is the part of our body which receives all the waste from the blood, liver, throat, lymph system, sinuses and lungs, but also the undigested fecal matter, and its task is to eliminate them from our body.
All the leftover nutrients from the consumed foods, including water, vitamins, and electrolytes, go into the colon and can be brought back for our body to use them.
If the function of our colon is disturbed, these processes won’t happen. Toxins and waste start to build up and that can only lead to various health issues and some of them can be very dangerous.
According to medical experts, food digestion lasts from 24 to 44 hours, so the food we have eaten needs this time to pass the bowels and colon, and later leave your body in the form of waste.
Our body actually needs 70 hours to process processed foods which are low in nutrients which means that there are over 20 pounds of waste accumulated in the colon. In these cases, the main symptoms people start to experience are constipation and irregular and painful bowel movements.
This is otherwise called colon toxicity. Some of the other main symptoms are:
- Joint and muscle pain
- Anxiety, poor memory, mood swings, depression, brain fog, fatigue
- Stomachache, diarrhea, gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion
- Poor immunity, vaginal infections, bladder problems, skin rashes
