Did You Know Colon Cleansing Was an Ancient Practice?
By Julia Loggins
Colon cleansing has been around for thousands of years … it was written about in the Bible. The Essenes practiced it. Hippocrates, the father of Western Medicine, taught it to his patients. So, why isn’t it a recognized part of our modern standard of care and disease prevention? Good question!
One reason is because our society is squeamish with the subject of poop. Katie Couric brought the subject of colonoscopies out of the closet, after losing her husband, Jay, to colon cancer…and allowing television cameras to film her own colonoscopy for the public to see. What a generous gift, because colon cancer is the number one cancer threat in America. With most American’s diets of processed foods, fried fats, sugar and white flour, it’s no wonder that an impacted colon can hold 5 to 20 pounds of waste. And as a colon therapist, I’ve found that even my clients with healthy diets, who eat salads and drink smoothies, have colons impacted from years of stress and the bad, though reformed, habits of childhood or early adult-hood. They come to our Clinic looking for relief from allergies, migraines, constipation or IBS, and they’re surprised that their newly clean dietary regimes are not clearing their illness and disease. That’s because it often takes a pro-active colon cleansing program to move that waste out of the colon.
Colon Cleansing Protocols and Programs
There are many wonderful colon cleansing programs available at your health food store. Check with the expert in the herbal supplement dept. and tell him or her your specific needs. If you have IBS, colitis, diverticulitis or any disease of the colon, stay away from herbal cleansing programs that contain harsh ingredients like senna or cascara sagrada….herbs that can be very helpful for cleaning a healthy colon. Instead, use aloe vera juice and slipper elm tea. In my new book, “DARE TO DETOXIFY!” I share my 35 years of experience with colon cleansing, my client’s success stories and the tools have worked in our Clinic. I’m so excited to give this information to anyone who is serious about having incredible energy, a speedy metabolism, balanced hormones and success losing weight.
