Healing With Colon Cleansing

Colon cleansing is a tried and true alternative remedy for helping your body heal much more quickly and efficiently. Essentially, the faster you're able to cleanse old waste material out of your colon, the faster your body is able to start disposing of even more wastes and toxins which may be backed up.

The colon is over five feet long, and it's connected to every part of our body through nerve endings. So when something is wrong in the colon, it can be manifested in symptoms that seem completely unrelated.

Some people find the concept of cleansing their colon strange or unpleasant - particularly if they're new to the idea of alternative and herbal healing. Other people have tried it for various things - usually doing so the first time out of desperation - and are now complete believers in the concept.

Cleaning your colon does not have to be unpleasant though. Yes, you can cleanse the colon more quickly and efficiently by using enemas and colonic flush techniques, but this is not required if the idea is repulsive to you. Instead, simple herbs and dietary changes can help you cleanse your colon more naturally at a slower rate.

Now, the colon is the primary method which our bodies use to dispose of various wastes, bacteria, and toxins. The liver is the main waste disposal organ in our body, and it does the primary job of filtering the various wastes and toxins out of our blood stream. Then it sends this waste in the form of bile through the rest of the disposal system until solid waste material, or stool, is created. This stool travels through the entire length of the colon, and is eventually expelled from the body through a bowel movement.

Since the colon is so large though, there are a number of problems which can occur while the solid waste material is being moved through. As it moves through your system for instance, additional water material is removed from it to be used in various other areas of your body. This happens when people don't drink enough water, and that causes the solid waste material to dry out before it has been eliminated from the body. If it gets too dry, it will be unable to move much, if at all, so things can get severely backed up over time.

If your colon gets too backed up, the entire rest of the waste disposal system in your body becomes slowed down too. The liver can't process and eliminate toxins if it's unable to send it forward to be disposed of. And once things start backing up in your body, it can create a wide variety of health problems. So, cleansing the colon of old, dried, backed up material is one of the best ways to get your body back into optimal working order.
