Do you take good care of the health of your colon? If you are not, it is important to make some changes about this. The colon belongs to the digestive system and its health and the health of the digestive system are very important to preserve the good health and well-being – says Donna Gates, the founder of Body Ecology.
Having a healthy colon is important for the proper function of every tissue and cell in the body and also liver which is the most important organ for the detoxification of the body.
In other words, healthy colon ensures releasing of all the body’s toxins out of the body.
All the waste from the lymph system, sinuses, lungs, liver, throat and blood goes to the colon. And the colon gets the undigested fecal matter also and has to throw it out from the body.
But also, water, electrolytes and vitamins that are leftover travel to the colon, and it brings them back to the body.
So if the colon’s function is disabled, it cannot do these highly important functions. Then, this can lead to various health issues, because all the toxins and waste products will accumulate in the colon.
The process of digesting food is between 24 to 44 hours. This means that in this time, your body will process all the consumed food in the bowels and colon and throw it out as a waste.
In case you eat food with little nutrients, such as enzymes and fiber, it will take up to 70 hours for the body to digest the food and throw out the waste. This means that there will be about 20 pounds of waste accumulated in your colon.
This can result with painful and irregular bowel movements due to constipation caused by toxic accumulation.
