Colon Cleansing: Expert Opinions
Dr. Bernard Jensen
Bernard Jensen DC, ND, PhD is one of the pioneers who used colon cleansing to improve a person’s quality of life. In his book, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management (Buy this book on Amazon), he explains the importance of colon cleansing: “the heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefication. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It’s that hard and black.” Dr. Jensen also documents some amazing stories of health benefits, accomplished by removing this rubbery matter through colon cleansing, in his book.
Dr. Richard Anderson
Another leader in colon cleansing is Dr. Richard Anderson, ND, N.M.D. He also has tremendous personal experience with colon cleansing and conveys much of this in his two books: Cleanse and Purify Thyself, Volumes 1 & 2 (Buy this book on Amazon). In an Internet article, he states, “I have always attempted to make it clear that the ‘Mucoid Plaque’ found in the bowel is not equivalent to the natural healthy gastric and intestinal mucosa. The natural mucosa serves as a necessary buffer for the gastro-intestinal wall and as a lubricant for intestinal motility. ‘Mucoid plaque’ of any description is un-natural and is found only after the body has moved towards diseased states. Medical science has many words to describe each of these conditions, but to my knowledge, there are no effective terms that describe them under one category.”
Martha Volchok, A.H.G.
Martha Volchok relates, “I observed all of my bowel movements and studied them as a scientist would. After my first cleanse, I got out just what Dr. Jensen showed in his book, Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management. Not only that, but popcorn kernels came out and I hadn’t eaten any popcorn in years! Having something come out after all those years gave me more faith in Dr. Jensen’s work. I reasoned that if the popcorn was that old, how old was the rest of the stuff coming out? Surely some of it was from that same time period.”
“My conclusion is that I am lifting off the intestinal wall a thickened layer that has accumulated quite like what happens to the plumbing in our homes. Over time any tube/pipe/intestine that has material going over it daily begins to have a build-up. Only we need our intestines to be as free of that as possible for the best, healthiest functioning. Of course, I cannot say for sure just exactly what is happening, but I can judge by the resultant great feelings that in fact I have done something truly positive for my health.”
“Whenever I do my yearly cleanse now, I see clearly the striations on the outside of my stools that reflect the same indentations from different parts of the intestinal wall; both small and large (colon). Could this be an actual thin layer that had accumulated directly on the intestinal lining? These markings are never present on my everyday bowel movements. The stool from my colon cleanse has a thin, outer layer that is decidedly a different, deeper color than the inside of the stool. It is also much firmer and cannot be pulled apart, whereas the inner portion of the stool looks remarkably like the Toxin Absorber™ drink and it is possible to pull apart easily (see photo below).”
