Intestinal Cleansing, Guarantee of Good Health

Intestinal Cleansing, Guarantee of Good Health


Intestinal dysfunction and the permanent self-toxication it causes can have a disastrous effect on the nervous system

Contrary to popular belief, the foods we have eaten are not “inside us” at all. It is true that they are in the inside of our body, but not in its tissues as they can only be after they have been digested and assimilated. For this reason, a large part of the immune system is placed on the walls of the small intestine (Peyer’s Plates), as it must be careful that dangerous substances do not enter our body through the food.

This leads us to understand the wise habit that, until a few decades ago, gave an intestinal cleansing to adults and children at least once a month, at the change of season and when going on vacation. In fact, a clean intestine provides a guarantee of health because it does not create organic poisons and lightens the work of defense systems.

A dirty intestine, instead, becomes the site of various toxic substances that load the immune system with a heavy and continuous work, therefore, over time, it loses its efficiency giving rise to many problems including various intolerances and allergies. This fact has made Dr. Bernard Jensen say, after years of studies and experiments, that “most of the health problems widespread in the industrialized society today is due to a poor state of intestinal cleansing”.

Toxins, in turn, can create the conditions for innumerable dysfunctions and….diseases

Not cleaning the intestine internally, especially in its last stretch (the colon), is equivalent to having the staff responsible for the removal of urban waste on strike. To all intents and purposes if the waste material is left to stagnate in the colon, a process of putrefaction will begin which will irritate the mucous membrane making it less permeable (leaky gut syndrome), this will allow the toxic substances to penetrate into the bloodstream.

These toxins, in turn, can create the conditions for innumerable dysfunctions and diseases, among which we mention: skin problems, blood poisoning that nourishes the brain and the nervous system with a consequent headache (chronic headache), irritability, weakening, listlessness, little memory and some problems that are imputed to senile dementia.

Some signs of this state of poisoning due to the persistence of putrescent material inside the colon are: stools and foul-smelling sweat, malfunctioning of the digestive system, abdominal swelling, flatulence, bad breath, tongue covered with a white patina, acne and skin opaque and not very toned. In short, every organ can get intoxicated, the body ages prematurely, the joints age, becoming stiffened, the mind becomes lazy and the joy of living is lacking.

Common causes

A diet based on foods that are not fresh, fried, overcooked or overdone, the excessive use of non-wholemeal flour and refined sugars, the abuse of salt and other improprieties in our nutrition do not favor efficient functioning of the colon, even if we think we have regular evacuations.

Incredibly to believe, but …

Intestinal dysfunction and the permanent self-toxication it causes can have a disastrous effect on the nervous system.
It seems truly incredible, also because doctors generally do not talk about it, but many problems and illnesses have their profound cause in a bad functioning of the intestine, due to the little movement, environmental pollution and use of non-natural medicines. To these factors we must add an unbalanced diet, too rich in sugars, refined foods and chemical additives and poor in primary elements, such as fibers, vitamins and minerals.

    The hormone functions can also be affected by toxins accumulated in our body. The only remedy is a full and complete detox of our diet and personal care routine so that we can fight it successfully.

      Probably we are not going to learn any of this from our family doctors as many of them are still hopeless in these areas. For the not so young of them, they were never taught about nutrition and detoxification in medical school and a large majority have never had a chance or wanted to got to seminars where to learn topics of this kind.

    To fully understand the extent of the damage that a “dirty colon” can cause just think of this.
    It is common for Coroners, Pathologist and Medical Examiners to find incredible “surprises” when performing Autopsies.
    One autopsy revealed a colon that was stretched to nine inches in diameter and another to eighteen inches because they were packed with layer upon layer of encrusted mucoid fecal matter.
    Another autopsy revealed a colon so loaded with mucoid plaque that it weighed forty pounds! The healthy colon weighs only about four pounds.
    Few people realize that the same mucoid layers found in the colon also abound in the stomach, duodenum and small intestine.

      On the inner walls of the digestive system, there are various substances that accumulate, in reality should not be there, we think only of those semi-digested foods that can not be absorbed or eliminated by the body in the form of excrement, or toxins that enter our body in various ways. .

      To understand the importance of colon cleansing it is not necessary to analyze the toxic substances with which we come into contact, just spend a few words on semi-digested foods that, sticking to the colon’s walls, are demolished without being absorbed, producing toxic substances accordingly; in this way we continue to intoxicate our organism without even knowing it.

      In many cases this is the true cause of obesity, ie most of the food is not used properly by the body and consequently we need to eat more so as not to feel hunger, while the unabsorbed foods are deposited. But there is a solution to all this, a thorough cleaning of the colon, able to eliminate the various substances deposited and become superfluous.

    Back in my days, our mum used to give us full fat milk mixed with yogurt , fresh lime and honey on an empty stomach.
    The results were something a mix, it had a great effect, (evacuation), with my two old brothers but not really with me. I did not like to drink it and I could not see any effect of cleansing.

      Hi Joseph,

      I have tried that remedy myself but with now great results. However I can definitely suggest something similar.
      Kefir it is a fermented milk drink, a source of protein, rich in essential amino acids, minerals, B vitamins. Kefir is rich in beneficial bacteria that rebalance the intestinal flora by destroying pathogens and parasites. Kefir and yogurt are very similar but the first contains many more friendly bacteria of the second, in addition to a nutritional value higher than yogurt. Kefir can also be consumed by those who are lactose intolerant because the yeasts present in this drink also consume lactose.

      The enema, is a technique used for the cleaning and evacuation of the intestine, is a very effective and simple methodology. It can be done at home and requires a simple kit that can be purchased at the local pharmacy. If you do some basic research online I suggest to check both chamomile or coffee methods as they seem to be the best.
