Cleansing Your Body
Most everyone is searching for the secret for better health and the answer is surprising. According to Dr. Paul Bragg, one of fathers of natural medicine and author of several health books including Live Food Cook Books, “the secret to great health can be described in three words: cleanse your body.”
What You Don’t Know, Can Hurt You
The significance of cleansing is largely underestimated within and without the world of health fanatics. Balanced nutrition combined with exercise is the traditional and effective regimen for good health. However, at times our health not only depends on the nutrients we consume, but how these nutrients are absorbed in the body and if the body has regular bowel movements to get rid of the waste our bodies don’t need. The buildup of toxins over the years within the folds of our digestive tracts can lead to a decline in our health, and detoxifying the body has numerous benefits you will be interested in understanding.
Cleansing should begin with the colon. Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., Ph D. simply said “poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems,” because having excess toxic build up within our colons leads to excess toxic buildup throughout the rest of our bodies as well.
Among these problems is fatigue. Fatigue happens to be a common plague in society today. Lack of energy can be attributed to several different factors, but it is also a primary symptom of inner toxicity.
Even if you eat healthy, toxins that come from your environment can prevent your body from absorbing nutrients and converting it into energy. Irrigating the toxins and waste from your body and colon allows your body to absorb essential nutrients and turn around and use them properly for energy.
Inner toxicity is also responsible for weight gain. A toxic digestive system slows down your metabolism and causes fat storage despite attempts to exercise. Internal cleansing restores the balance in the body in order to increase the metabolism, thus re-establishing the body’s natural fat burning process. As a result, it is easier to maintain weight and even lose weight after the colon is free of toxic waste.
There’s More Where That Came From
The medical director of the Preventive Medical Center of Marin, Elson M. Haas, M.D., suggests that cleansing/detoxification is a missing link in nutrition and is one of the keys to healing. The nutritionist, Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald, would have to agree. In her book “The Detox Solution” she outlines the many other benefits attained through cleansing. Colon cleansing can prevent illness, improve physical appearance, boost emotional well-being, minimize the signs of aging, and even sharpen mental capabilities.
Periodic cleansing is more than just a suggestion, it is recommended by nutritionists and doctors as a way to improve every aspect of your health by allowing your colon to start over. Colon cleansing is safe and easy and the benefits are more widespread that you’d think.
