Why Should the Colon Be Cleansed?

Besides the colon being the “sewer system” of the body as it is referred to, a healthy colon absorbs water and hosts good bacteria that produce vitamins, such as K and some B vitamins. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.

The colon is a reflex organ with electrical connections to all body parts and systems. When waste material builds up over a long period of time the colon starts to weaken, breakdown and become toxic. The body reacts by slowing down other functions and becoming sluggish.

Some of the effects seen are: coated tongue, fetid breath, sallow complexion, abnormal body odor, dark circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails and hair, sagging posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, chronic headaches, irritability, nervousness, nausea, depression, asthma, and backaches.
