Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming – high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to discomfort in the body, and causes the tissue of the colon to become inflamed & diseased, reducing the colon’s ability to do its job. The body’s pH will be thrown completely out of balance, if yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue. While conventional medicine ignores the pH balance, holistic doctors recognize that our bodies are continually striving for this balance, and that chronic imbalance leaves us susceptible to disease. Acid-alkaline balance is easy to regulate, and by making very simple changes to your diet, you can improve your body’s pH balance within hours.
It strongly influences the risk for many serious health issues like osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid problems, cancer and other insidious conditions.
And when the body becomes too acidic, minerals are being pulled out of the bones and tissues to compensate. This leads to thinner bones and lower muscle mass. Overly acidic tissues are a known risk for many chronic diseases, impaired enzymatic reactions in cells and overloading the lymphatic system, therefore impeding the body’s natural detoxification process.
Decreases Risk of Colon Cancer
We all need to understand – all the toxins we eat, drink, breathe in and absorb through our skin end up being processed by our gastrointestinal system and liver. If they’re not forced out of the colon and liver as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. The causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract, are reduced by releasing body waste rapidly.
Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating. It refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. As a result of undergoing colon detoxification, people have said they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep and a boost in energy.
Losing concentration can be a result of a poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption. Mucus and toxin buildups in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing your colon can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships and your overall health.
