To understand what a toxic colon is, it’s necessary to understand what toxins are. By strict definition, a toxin is any substance that is damaging to living tissue; and they come in many forms. Some toxins come from airborne pollutants emitted by refineries. Others are harmful organisms that live within the digestive system. Toxins may also be synthetic ingredients used to manufacture processed foods, or pesticides used to maximize the profits of agri-business produce cultivation.
What Are The Effects of Toxins?
People are becoming aware that the accumulation of toxins within the body, and in particular, the colon and the liver, is the root cause of poor health and emotional disturbance.
A toxic colon is problematic for the human body. We estimate that 90 percent of all harmful agents that attack the body are absorbed through the intestinal lining. In order to effectively deal with the root cause of poor health, it is necessary to eliminate accumulated toxicity in the small intestine and colon on a regular basis in order to maximize your personal health and wellness.
In many ways, the colon can be compared to the exhaust system of an automobile. Just as the exhaust pipe of a car releases the toxins that are created during the internal combustion process, so too does the colon release the toxins created as the byproducts of harmful foods and toxins. However, to continue the analogy, a colon that becomes clogged with toxins acts much like an exhaust pipe clogged with industrial toxic byproducts. As the emission of these byproducts becomes congested, the exhaust goes back into the engine, and the engine backfires and starts to malfunction.
Toxicity is Cumulative
A toxic colon and congested digestive tract will fail to eliminate the many harmful agents that would otherwise be expelled up to 2-3 times daily through normal, regular bowel movements. This toxicity may also remain lodged in the walls of the digestive system, where it begins to damage the lining of the intestines and colon. Over time, this lining can become perforated. Through these perforations in the small intestine and colon walls, toxins can leak directly back into the bloodstream. We believe that this influx of toxicity is the root cause for the increase in cases of debilitating health conditions and cancer nationwide.
Because of the prevalence of harmful agents in the environment, food and water, it is estimated that the average person develops a toxic colon by the age of thirty. The walls of the digestive system can absorb toxins just as they absorb water and nutrients. Even without a perforated colon, this buildup of toxicity only leads to the spreading of poison throughout the entire body if something is not done to remove it.
How Can Toxins Be Eliminated?
Obviously, the most proactive stance to take toward this toxicity is to initiate some form of colon cleansing that will restore this most vital organ to its optimal state of health and functionality. While there are many products on the market that can be used to accomplish this, we urge our readers to avoid any herbal colon cleansers. Our research and experience has taught us that oxygen-based colon cleansing is the safest and most effective method of cleaning out the small intestine and colon. An oxygen-based colon cleanser like Oxy-Powder® uses a safe, gentle, natural process to flush out toxic buildup on a regular basis.
