When I was a little boy back in the village I recall that on several occasions my mom would perform an enema on us whenever it was thought that we did not properly empty our bowels, or felt sick in some way. Thus an injection of a liquid through the anus was normally performed to stimulate evacuation; experts refer to it as colonic irrigation! Now, what ever happened to that good old diagnostic therapy?
One renowned British surgeon who has enabled thousands of patients regain their health by leading them successfully through the process of cleaning out their colons is Denis Burkitt. He is reputed for knowing and understanding the reasons as well as the cause of your falling sick most of the time. Burkitt says “People get sick because of everyday toxins and heavy metals in their colons.”
Studies have revealed that once you are able to eliminate unwanted wastes and toxins out of your system, your sense of well-being is automatically renewed and you have joy for living. It is true that we live in a polluted world and this is obviously true of the water we drink, the air we breathe especially in our urban centres; what with all the rickety vehicles on the roads and all manner of power generators – owing to inadequacy of public power supply.
Almost every home and business has one type of power generator or the other adding to the carbon emission in our atmosphere, etc. The soil that grows our foods and the plants that grow from it are equally not spared the chemical and heavy metal contents.
Apart from getting ‘pollutions’ into our system mainly through our digestive tracts by the foods and drinks we take in, and the air we breathe, the foods that decompose inside our system is the biggest issue we have to deal with. Experts say not all the foods get digested passing through the colon. And most of the foods we eat are either very low or completely lacking in fibre, and so they tend to move very slowly through the digestive tract unlike foods that are high in fibre.
This is the problem; undigested foods are collected in the colon and will remain there and continue to accumulate for a long time unless something is done. After a period of time as a result, you are likely to experience the following signs and symptoms which means you may be sick – in some way, or even develop chronic ill health, all due to waste build-up in your colon. The followings are symptoms that say you may be sick owing to an unclean ‘gutter’:
- Acne and skin diseases
- Indigestion and sluggish digestive system
- Bloating (hard & swollen stomach)
- Food allergies
- General weakness
- Bad mood
Cleaning out your colon is the way to go. Whatever it takes, getting your colon heave a sigh of relief has no substitute. There is so much that connects your health status to the part of your large intestine – running between the caecum and the rectum. This system generally extracts moisture from food residues before they are excreted, and it is your life line. Burkitt reminds us that, if you want to prevent colon cancer, cleaning out your gut also is a sure way to doing just that.
