Part 1: Who Should Clean Their Colon & Why
“It is an indisputable fact that not only illness and old age but even death itself are due to the accumulation of waste products (within the body)… to the inability of the body to replenish its cellular structures and organs with fresh, vital nutrients.”
—Bernard Jensen, D.C.
If you no longer look and feel as good as you did in grade school — with bright eyes, sweet-breath, boundless energy — it’s probably more than your age showing, it’s more than likely a clogged and impacted colon.
For those of you not quite sure what it means to have an impacted colon, I will explain, in unappetizing detail. The average person carries around as much as ten pounds of uneliminated feces in his/her bowels. (When the celebrated actor John Wayne died, his autopsy revealed more than twenty pounds of waste lodged in his colon!) These are the undigested substances, some from your last few meals but more the accumulations from childhood onward, which do not pass out in your regular bowel movements.
Due to the abnormally slow transit time of the bowel when it’s dealing with the processed, or “junk,” foods we eat, a portion of these old feces sits around in sluggish colons, creating mucus (which clogs the entire “pipe system” of the body) and losing moisture until they become pressed together (constipare is Latin for “to press together”): the outcome is hard pellets which are eventually, and often with unnatural effort (which may include straining), eliminated. The portion that does not see the light of day — that which the digestive/eliminative systems simply can not handle — becomes increasingly tough and gluey, finally taking on a rubbery, black appearance and forming a hard shell that sticks permanently to the intestinal walls.
These unwholesome materials may build up in pockets or may coat the entire length of the colon and small intestine. This is the stuff that shouldn’t be there, the life-shortening “glue” that poisons every part of your body, and which requires special techniques to remove. Removing these stubborn incrustations require that these special techniques be coupled with lifestyle changes to be effective. More on that later.
It’s truly astounding how long some of these impacted wastes can linger in the intestines. I once read a story about a war veteran who, after cleaning his colon, rediscovered the bright red berries he had been forced to eat — lest he starves — while trapped on an island during World War II. This man’s colon had hung onto the indigestible berries until he did a colon cleanse more than three decades later! This is not unusual.
The older you are when you have your first cleanse, the more likely you are to be shocked/horrified by what you find floating in your toilet. People over forty tend to discover the worst detritus, ranging from black, tar-like sludge, to impossibly long strands of mucus, to parts of parasites to whole tapeworms! If you add to this the hostile bacteria and carcinogens, which are invisible, the need for cleansing is dramatically apparent.
This is not to say that a twenty-somethings can’t make the same revolting discoveries upon cleansing. That’s why cleansing is an important part of maintaining good health for all adults, especially those whose diet and lifestyle are questionable, regardless of age.
