WHY YOU NEED TO CLEANSE
We are a nation of constipation, stagnation, putrefaction, fermentation, and autointoxication. Medical doctors report that less than 50% of Americans have a daily bowel movement, and, in fact, there is no medical reason to have a bowel movement every day. The National Digestive Disease Information Clearinghouse
states that three bowel movements a day to three a week are normal, while the FDA reports that the average American male may be carrying an unbelievable 5 to 22 lbs
. of fecal matter in him on any given day.
The European Journal of Cancer reported in 2004 that constipation raises your risk of colon cancer. But few people realize that there are two types of constipation. The first type is infrequent elimination or when you cannot have a bowel movement. The other type of constipation, of which most people are unfamiliar, is when the colon wall becomes encrusted with hardened mucus and fecal matter narrowing the aperture of the colon and resulting in pencil-like stools. This is called mucovicidosis or intestinal mucin, and can have the consistency of truck tire rubber and be the home of parasites.
As the director of BellaVita Lifestyle Center, I have witnessed many people pass black, hard ropes in only a few days. I explain to every guest the power of colon cleansing for removal of the old material from the colon that can be years old. One nurse gasped: “I have been a nurse for 19 years and I have never seen anything like this pass from a human body.”
So why should we cleanse? I think the answer is obvious. When the body takes in toxins faster than it can eliminate them, symptoms develop producing disease. In order to prevent and reverse disease, we must FIRST detoxify all the elimination organs of the body: the bowel, liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood, and lymph, and regenerate the body. This is the foundational program for healing. When the toxins are removed from the body and tissues, WHAT NEEDS TO HEAL HEALS. Many different symptoms that you would never associate with a toxic condition of the colon improve or disappear.
