Why don’t you pay attention to your colon?
Most of us didn’t learn anything in school that was in tune with everyday life, especially when it comes to life and health. And you ask why? It’s because it just wasn’t taught. Period.
Somewhere long ago a NON-visionary individual implemented a lifetime of subjects, which MOST people NEVER use, threw them into boring, unimaginary classes, and called it school (Side note: Actually, ONLY we needed some of these subjects, really).
In someone’s estimation, this was MUCH more meaningful than teaching us ‘how to think using our OWN creative intelligence and how to properly care for our bodies’. So here we are starting to “figure out” what is REALLY important!
I said ALL THAT, to say this, “Who told you how important it really is to keep your colon clean and protected from disease?” And I already know the answer. NO ONE!
Our colonists are basically the most important part of our entire digestive system. This is where THE DISEASE BEGINS, if it is not cared for properly.
According to Health Line, your colon is responsible for absorbing nutrients and minerals from the body and absorbing water from the body. It also eliminates waste. In other words, the colon removes waste from the body.
Your digestive system is your colon, your mouth, your esophagus, your stomach, and your small and large intestine. They are all connected.
If any part of your digestive system isn’t working properly, it spells BIG trouble for you, from CONSTIPATION to DIARRHEA and everything in between.
Most people don’t “give a damn” about their settlers, until they get sick. However, according to Health Line, again, colon problems can include leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s disease, diverticulitis, ulcers, and colon cancer, to name a few. People who already have some of these illnesses may give you an idea of what they go through every day. You don’t have to let this be you!
So if you have digestive or colon problems, listen to this! Now is the time to educate yourself and become more aware of how to keep your colon and digestive system safe. It is your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY that will keep you out of doctor’s offices and hospitals for years to come.
GREAT COLUMBUS HISTORY OF THE WHISPER OF COLUMBUS:
Why is the colon so important? by Toni Schumacher Lund
One day the body met and decided to have a board meeting. This is what happened behind closed doors. There was an intense discussion to determine:
WHO WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BODY.
The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me, nothing would be accomplished.”
Then the HEART spoke. “Without me pumping blood to your brain, you couldn’t function.”
ARMS laughed. “They are both wrong, without me putting food in my mouth, nothing would work.”
They quickly added the LEGS. “Without me you couldn’t get your food”
The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”
The LUNGS responded: “Without me, you could not breathe.”
The EYES blinked, “Without me you couldn’t see.”
THE KIDNEYS hissed, “Without me, you couldn’t detox and eliminate.”
The COLON spoke meekly. “I’m important. You need me to remove all the junk from your systems.”
They all laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as us? You’re just a smelly old sewer.”
The poor colon … his feelings were hurt. He turned around and thought: I’ll show them. IT TURNED OFF !! Then he sat down and watched what would happen.
The BRAIN was dumbfounded.
The heartbeat was weak.
ARMS and LEGS were weak and could not move.
LUNGS breathing was shallow.
EYES clouded over.
THE KIDNEYS dropped out.
Then the COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting.
This time it wasn’t overly animated, but they were all in complete agreement.
THE COLON WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN.
HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOUR COLON?
Here are the 6 quick excerpts provided by Cancer.org:
1). Get screened for colorectal cancer
two). Eat lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.
3). Exercising regularly
4). Watch your weight
5). Do not smoke
6). Limit alcohol
Now for a more in-depth HOLISTIC (whole body approach) approach to protecting your colon, here are some important things to keep in mind and take action on:
Very Well Health, on the Internet, says that some key studies say that to prevent colon problems, the body needs:
1). High levels of vitamin D in the blood. If you don’t know which foods give you vitamin D, buy a “whole food” vitamin D tablet from a trusted source; NOT vitamin D tablets from a commercial pharmacy. You can also get plenty of vitamin D by bathing in the sun early in the morning for about 10 minutes or so. Since we destroy our own ozone layer, after 9:00 am or 10:00 am, the sun is “too hot” and more deadly for sunbathing. That is the fault of our society; It is not nature’s fault.
two). For colon protection, Very Well Health goes on to say that you need more folate or vitamin B which comes from foods like asparagus and spinach. How many times have you eaten asparagus or spinach in the last year? Unless you’re vegan or vegetarian, I bet you haven’t eaten any of these things more than once or twice. Just guess! And if you don’t like these foods, you can drink them. Fresh juices with vegetables taste MUCH better than to some people than eating them. Plus, you get the benefit of them faster (right into your bloodstream) and they’re MUCH easier to digest. Personally, I drink the vegetable-filled powder from PurityProducts.com every day called Organic Juice Cleanse. It gives you a whole day of vitamins and minerals that you never get from having to eat them. I put a big scoop of green powder in a green drink and I’m good to go. Find a powder with kale, spinach, wheatgrass, greens, spirilina, and the like that you know is GREAT for you, and “DRINK!”
3). Very Well Health says that ‘quercetin’ also stops colon cancer from growing. Bet you never heard of this one? It is an antioxidant that you can get in pill form and is naturally found in apples, onions, and berries. Again, you can drink these things. Homemade smoothies or juices allow you to add LOTS of FRUITS AND VEGETABLES that you may really like, while getting a full day of supreme vitamins and minerals, as well as protecting your colon.
4). White tea and green tea are also great for inhibiting colon problems. Their herbal teas, which you can get at health food stores and many commercial stores (these days) are very beneficial for your overall health. They are packed with antioxidants and go straight into the bloodstream.
5). Very good Health also mentioned the
Evaluation B) Healthy diet C) Exercise and D) Limitation of alcohol, similar to the organization of cancer.
My TOP man, Dr. Mercola (who you can Google for his informative articles) says that up to 50% of colon cancer cases can be prevented by eating a healthy diet, being physically active, and maintaining a healthy weight. 50% guys! It also says that you can optimize your vitamin D levels by consuming more vegetables, garlic, and fiber and avoiding processed meat, which also reduces colon cancer risks.
Dr. Mercola says that research has found that people who eat red meat have a 24% increased risk of colon cancer. However, it also says that grass-fed beef is much better for you and actually has some cancer-fighting compounds.
Therefore, he recommends that if you are a meat eater, stick to grass fed meats that are organically raised ONLY and cooked slowly; not well done, due to carcinogens.
Dr. Mercola says that garlic and turmeric (raw or in pill form) also have many medicinal properties for the colon. In other words, it’s your REAL medicine, without the side effects.
One of the TOP PRODUCTS I recommend for COLONS as well as general body health (your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY) is GEORGE’S ALOE VERA JUICE. Read a little about its benefits on my website at foodsthatcause constipation..com, under Articles. Everyone in the family can benefit from George’s aloe vera juice … babies, seniors, parents, students, you name it. No side effects. It tastes like spring water. The ONLY brand I know of that removes the bitter taste. You only need 2 or 3 plugs in the morning and 2 or 3 plugs at night before going to sleep. There are no babies crying at night. No more stomach aches. No more constipation problems either. It is a plant from heaven. Aloe Vera Juice is a drink that should not be confused with Aloe Vera Gel, which is used on the outside of the body.
Our bodies are our precious instruments that were kindly given to us at birth, for our special care. Being more aware and more active in doing so is a first step. Even if it is a baby step; it is a step, however. No one is telling you to give up everything you like. The suggestions are there simply to help you become more balanced and give you more Tender Loving Care (TLC). A little TLC never hurts anyone and TLC for your COLON is a MUST!
