The Colon & Digestive System

All nutrition for the growth and repair of our bodies comes from the digested food moving along in the small intestines and being picked up by the blood. It is then brought directly to the liver, which further processes these food molecules into forms easily used by the cells of the body. However, there are many places this can go wrong.

  1. If the food is not broken down small enough due to poor chewing or little or no teeth
  2. If there is a lack of digestive enzymes to break down the chewed-up food pieces to the even smaller size needed by the liver to process it for all the cells of the body
  3. If the intestinal wall is so packed and coated with toxic wastes that the blood absorbs only partially what it needs
  4. If unwanted guests burrowed into the coated intestines use some of your nutrition and give off their own toxic waste products into your body

The coating of the intestinal wall is called mucoid plaque. A certain amount of mucus is normal and enables the body to function properly, but a buildup of mucus is not the natural occurrence. If this plaque is not broken up and released, no amount of cleansing of other areas of the body will have a lasting effect. The colon must be cleaned out and any unwanted guests eliminated if the rest of the body is to renew itself.
