How to Maintain Your Health and Vitality Through Internal Cleansing

Understanding that our quality of life is determined by our daily choices, we have the power to improve our health and well-being quickly and dramatically. Optimum nutrition is a key factor, but our health depends not only on what nutrients we eat, but how much of those nutrients are absorbed and how well and regularly the body's waste products are eliminated.

With the proper use of cleansing and detoxification we can maintain health and vitality, even as we age.

Each year the average American consumes 150 lbs of sugar and 566 cans of soft drinks (“liquid candy”) (1) . According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, that is equal to “52 teaspoonfuls of added sugars per person per day.” (2) Can you imagine yourself sitting at the kitchen table gobbling down 52 teaspoons of white sugar – every single day? Well, that's exactly what most of us are doing without even realizing it!

Of course detoxification should not be limited to the colon. It is just as important to detoxify the liver, kidneys, arteries, and in general, every cell in the body. But internal cleansing must start with the colon, because if this region is kept unclean, it will contaminate every other part of the system.

The importance of internal cleansing can best be summed up in the words of Dr. Paul Bragg, one of the “fathers” of natural medicine in the U.S. and the author of dozens of highly successful health books:

Toxins "Stimulate Neurons to Death"

Junk foods and soft drinks contain dangerous additives, chemicals, and many are laced with excitotoxins “found in such ingredients as monosodium glutamate [MSG], aspartame (NutraSweet ® ), cysteine, hydrolyzed protein, and aspartic acid”. Excitotoxins are “substances added to foods and beverages that literally stimulate neurons death, causing brain damage of varying degrees.” 

 

The Role of Fiber

Our widespread colon problems begin with our unhealthy Western diet that is deficient in plant fibers. Fiber is indispensable in maintaining a healthy colon. A person with a healthy colon should in fact have two to three bowel movements per day. With the help of fiber, elimination should be complete, fast and easy.

Dietary fiber plays a crucial role in the proper function and maintenance of the colon. “Increasing the amount of fiber in the diet may reduce symptoms of diverticulitis and prevent complications such as diverticulitis. Fiber keeps stool soft and lowers pressure inside the colon so that bowel contents can move through easily. The American Dietetic Association recommends 20 to 35 grams of fiber each day.” 

For colon cleansing it is best to use a fiber supplement designed specifically for this purpose. Good-quality supplements contain both soluble and insoluble fiber and are formulated to loosen the stool, absorb and sweep away fat and toxins, reduce transit time, and make elimination effortless and complete.

When we start using an effective fiber supplement, we can expect some startling occurrences within a few days. The fiber goes to work immediately by loosening the hardened feces on the walls of the large intestine and gradually sweeping it out of the body. If we are not repulsed to look at what's leaving our body, we'll be surprised to see a lot of mucus and all the different colors of debris. It's hard to believe that all these things could actually be lurking inside us. What's even more shocking is that among the different colors and shapes people often notice various forms of parasites.

Weight Loss Is Almost Guaranteed with Internal Cleansing

There's an important added benefit to internal cleansing that most people experience: weight loss. With a sluggish, toxic digestive system, metabolism slows down, the energy level drops and we're simply not strong enough to start burning off stored fat through exercise or other means. An internal cleansing program can help restore balance in the body and increase the metabolism, reactivating the body's fat-burning mechanism. Plus, after a thorough detoxification program, you'll find yourself much more inclined to make healthier dietary and lifestyle choices. Through a detoxified system, improved digestion, balanced metabolism and a healthier diet you will have no trouble maintaining a healthy weight.
