Is your colon healthy? Proper colon function is of utmost importance for overall health. You may think that this part of the body will just to its job, but sometimes you have to give it a hand.
Dona Gates, the founder of Body Ecology, says that a healthy digestive system is important for the overall health.
Your liver eliminates toxins from the body, but its function depends on the condition of your colon. The same applies to every cell in the body.
The waste from your liver, blood, lymph, throat, lungs, and sinuses ends up in the colon. Nutrient leftovers also end in the colon. If your colon is “blocked,” none of these functions will give proper results.
Toxic buildups cause severe health problems, meaning that you have to clean your colon more often.
The digestion of food lasts for 22-24 hours. The food you eat has plenty of time to travel through your digestive tract and the colon. Once your body is done digesting it, food leftovers are eliminated in the form of a toxic waste.
It takes 70 hours for the body to digest nutrient-deficient food. The waste accumulates in your colon, and you end up dealing with severe constipation and irregular bowel movement.
Here are the most common symptoms of colon toxicity:
- Diarrhea, stomachache, gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation
- Joint and muscle pain
- Vaginal infections, poor immunity, skin rashes, bladder problems
- Anxiety, memory loss, depression, fatigue, mood swings, brain fog
