During my tween and young adult years, I suffered from chronic, pounding, tear-inducing headaches.
I didn’t quite understand why these brain-squeezers plagued me, I just chalked ’em up as a normal part of life… about as “normal” as the once–a–week–IF–I–was–lucky bowel movements I experienced.
I mean, would YOU have guessed constipation as the cause of my headaches? Yeah, me (and apparently the doctor nor my mama) neither.
Worst yet, severe acne most-generously decorated my face with tiny mountains of low self-esteem. It kinda tears you down when cute boys consider you ugly.
Some years later, I FINALLY caught glimmer of hope when advised to research two words: colon cleanse. A shocking realization squared off and stared me right in my pimply face.
My own body had poisoned me.
And no, this wasn’t my body’s idea of a sick, twisted, sadistic joke. Those symptoms were a cry for help because of things I did:
- always choosing soda pop or Kool Aid over water
- gorging on sugary cereal, chips and candy day whenever I could
- all but giving vegetables the middle finger (unless it was iceberg lettuce or corn)
Couple all of that with the wonderful hormonal changes of puberty and, VOILÁ! Instant hot mess.
Thankfully, those issues improved once I discovered what was causing my woes and DID something about it.
Let me ask you something personal…
How many times a day do you have a bowel movement?
Does that number equate to or surpass the number of times you eat?
If not, that can be a HUGE part of your health challenges:
- chronic headaches
- “mysterious” rashes
- foggy memory
- extreme water retention
- constant fatigue
- halitosis (bad breath) although you practice good oral hygiene
Poor diet and fast foods, stress, certain medications, and more can affect how often elimination happens in your body.
The colon gets rid of toxins and waste, which I’m sure you already knew.
But you may not know that your colon gets clogged up like an extremely backed up pipe – becoming a cesspool of smelly, foul, bacteria-laden nastiness when you don’t go regularly!
When this happens, nutrients don’t get absorbed, your body does’t get nourished and harmful toxins poison your body through something called, intestinal autointoxication.
If your colon does not function to its full capacity, neither will you!
But I “go” everyday, so I’m fine… right?
You may have a BMSome experts suggest you should be eliminating about 2 to 3 times daily, depending on how much you eat.
And oftentimes people will say,
“Oh, I go every day!”
BUT… what does your STOOL say about your health and the health of your digestive system?
The Bristol Stool Chart (pictured to the right) classifies the feces form into seven groups. Each form changes depending on the time it spends in the colon.
Your stool should resemble Type 3. It should be semi-soft/fluffy, thick, long, light in color and easy to pass, for optimum health.
Types 1 and 2 represent constipation which indicates a sluggish colon and food backed up in the colon.
Type 4 is somewhat “okay“, but when stools are smooth and thin, it could be an indication of a constriction in the colon the stool had to “force” its way through or worse, a spastic colon as a result of stress.
Types 5-7 represent a form of diarrhea.
The Truth About Your Colon (& Health)…
The colon is one of the most important organs in the body and directly affects ALL areas of your health & immunity.
Dr. Anthony Badzier, who conducted a 25-year study with 5,000 cases, says,“…intestinal toxins are the most important primary and contributory cause of many health problems of the human body.“
Dr. Bernard Jensen, D.C., PH.D., says if you eat 2 to 3 normal size meals a day, you should have 2 to 3 bowel movements a day. He says in his 50 years as a doctor, “…it has become crystal clear: poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems.”
I experienced what both Dr. Badzier and Dr. Jensen mentioned in terms of the intestines causing health.
Also, I don’t know if you read my “About” page where I briefly mentioned that my aunt died due to her body poisoning itself.
She had a few health challenges:
- renal (kidney) failure…
- diabetes which led to…
- amputation of both legs and…
- a colostomy which caused toxins to enter her blood stream
Your health can go from bad to the absolute worst if you don’t take your colon health seriously!
