The colon is an important part of your digestive and immune system. It’s in charge of eliminating toxins from the body and balancing the water amount in the body. When your colon function is compromised, toxins accumulate in the body affecting your overall health. The waste that remains in the colon is absorbed by the colon walls and ends in your bloodstream.
Now, if your diet includes healthy food high in fiber, it takes 24 hours for your body to digest it. On the other hand, if you diet mostly includes processed food low in nutrients and fiber, the process of digestion can last up to 70 hours. It’s such diet and slow digestion that account for 30 pounds of toxic substances to build up into your colon and body in general.
The first sign of colon toxicity is constipation, a condition marked by slow movement of waste through the large intestine as well as painful or irregular elimination.
These are the warning signs of large amount of toxic waste accumulated inside your colon:
- Digestive system symptoms
– Diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating, stomach pain
- General health symptoms
– Muscle and joint pain
- Behavior symptoms
– Fatigue, mood swings, low memory, depression, anxiety
- Immune system symptoms
– Vaginal infections, bladder infections, weakened immunity, skin rashes
If you experience any of the above mentioned symptoms, it’s important that you detoxify your colon and remove all the accumulated waste. In fact, colon cleansing is highly recommended by health experts because the mucus thickens in the colon and the capillaries absorb the built up poisons and toxins. Once they get into your bloodstream, your entire body is affected with the negative effects of these toxins.
