The Purpose of the Colon and
Why it is Important to Cleanse The Colon
Introduction – What is the Colon?
The colon is a general word for the large and small intestines and it is about 25-30 feet long and has the surface area of a tennis court. It is primarily involved with digestion, absorption and elimination. It is also home to our probiotic community, the microbiome which manages 70-80% of our immune system.
A high fiber diet, regular exercise, lots of healthy hydration and plant based foods keep our colon clean. Otherwise, if we exceed our toxic threshold and can not keep up with the onslaught of food-based toxins, pollution, medications and parasites, we can no longer eliminate toxins fast enough. Then there is accumulation, mucoid plaque, and a build up of poisons in the body. Additionally, stress slows down digestion significantly as well.
Why Cleanse the Colon?
Like anything in the body, it needs to be clean and free from toxicity. For digestion, proper elimination can be 12 to 18 hours and Americans average about 36 hours for elimination, allowing an accumulation of toxic debris and negative impacts on the immune system and absorption of nutrients. Long term neglect and poor functioning can result in serious health conditions such as the following.
- Lack of oxygen and Increased Acidity
- Colon Cancer
- Poor absorption and malnutrition
- Low hydration
- Inflammation and conditions like Chrons and Colitis
- Leaky Gut
- IBS, SIBO
- Low Immune System Functioning
- Depression and neurotransmitter issues – Colon cleansing supports healthy population of neurotransmitters – Neurotransmitters in the brain are also found in the microbiome and most originate from there. For example, 95% of our serotonin is found in the gut!
There are many strategies for cleansing the colon such as colon hydrotherapy, herbal remedies, medications, massage therapy and lots more. Cleansing the colon itself has been around for thousands of years. The most advanced, comprehensive and thorough type is an oxygen-based and oxygen-flooding colon cleansing.
What is an Oxygen Based Colon Cleanse?
In 1898, the famous scientist Tesla developed a safe end effective colon cleansing formula. We should consider that if this were more widely adopted, a lot of suffering could have been prevented and billions of dollars saved. Simply taking ozonated (O3) minerals before bedtime allows the release of oxygen through the entire length of the colon during the night in both the small and large intestines. Herbs can work very well but can sometimes cause a physical dependency. Traditional hydrotherapy is excellent, especially for coffee enemas, but is primarily focused on the large intestine whereas the this method works on the small and large intestines.
This method releases monoatomic or activated oxygen directly into the digestive tract and flushes out or neutralizes toxins. It floods the body with oxygen which is excellent for alkalizing the body, reducing inflammation and is also good for disease like cancer and issues of inflammation. Even long term colon debris can be removed. From medical research commenting about Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winning researcher and doctor, we have this.
There is no better way of detoxifying the body and thereby the system, organs and cells of the body than through enhancing the oxidative/reductive mechanism or as Dr. Warburg said, to literally “FLOOD THE BODY WITH OXYGEN.”
After the therapy is taken, and it cleans the colon, the oxygen then goes into the blood helping the entire body alkalize and oxygenate. We simply take the colon cleansing supplement in the comfort of your own home before bedtime, and the accompanying probiotics in the morning. This flushes the colon and immediately adding in probiotics the next morning quickly reinforces and replenishes the microbiome and dramatically boosts the immune system. You can continue with your daily activities or work and it is as easy as that.
A later development and improvement on the original Tesla formula was developed by Dr. Group; herbalist, doctor and researcher. His method uses food based strategies of plant based nutrition for support during the cleanse. Some people also like to do juicing as an option. In addition to the basic protocol of Dr. Group which has extensive hydration and plant based nutrition for the 6 day cleanse process, we also suggest these items to maximize the benefit.
- Clay – For advanced mineralization, electrolyte support and most importantly, to accelerate detoxing by binding with toxins to eliminate them from the body quickly and efficiently
- Probiotic Drink – Sauerkraut water or a live food raw sauerkraut ensures excellent probiotic replenishment during the cleanse, along with the supplement
- Aloe juice – Especially with digestive disorders or conditions which would benefit from the included detoxing herbal blend, aloe juice is very beneficial.
Just as we wash our face, skin and external body on a regular basis, so should we do internal cleansing to eliminate toxins and poisons from the environment to allow our bodies to function optimally and efficiently, digest properly, and give us plenty of energy to do our work and live our lives. After years of research and personal experimenting, I find this the best approach, especially with our added recommendations, supporting therapies, and follow on services.
