Most of us didn’t learn a doggone thing in school that was in-sync with everyday living, especially when it comes to life and health. And you ask why? It’s because it just wasn’t taught. Period.
Somewhere, a long time ago, some NON-visionary individual implemented a lifetime of subjects, that MOST people NEVER use, threw them into dull, un-imaginary classes, and called it school (Sidenote: We actually ONLY needed a few of these subjects, really).
In someone’s estimation, this was WAY more significant than teaching us ‘how to think by using our OWN creative intelligence and how to take proper care of our bodies. So, here we are just starting to “catch on” to what’s REALLY important!
I said ALL OF THAT, to say this, “Who ever informed you how important it really Is to keep your colon clean and protected from disease?” And I already know the answer. NOBODY!
Our colons are basically the most important part of our entire digestive system. This is where DISEASE BEGINS, if it isn’t taken care of properly.
According to Health Line, your colon is responsible for absorbing the body’s nutrients and minerals, and absorbing the body’s water. It also eliminates the waste. In other words, the colon takes out the body’s garbage.
Your digestive system is your colon, your mouth, your esophagus, your stomach, and your small and large intestine. They’re all connected.
If any part of your digestive system doesn’t work properly, it means HUGE problems for you, all the way from CONSTIPATION through DIARRHEA, and everything in between.
Most people don’t ‘give a hoot’ about their colons, until they get sick. However, according to Health Line, again, colon issues can include Leaky Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, Diverticulitis, Ulcers and Colon Cancer, to name a few. People who already have some of these diseases could give you an earful of what they go through everyday. You don’t have to let this be you!
So, if you have any colon or digestive issues, listen up! Now’s your time to be educated and to be more aware of keeping your colon and digestive system safe. It’s your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY that will keep you out of doctor’s offices and hospitals for years to come.
GREAT COLON STORY FROM THE COLON WHISPERER:
Why is the colon so important? by Toni Schumacher Lund
One day the body got together and decided to have a board meeting. Here’s what went on behind closed doors. There was intense discussion to determine:
WHO WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BODY.
The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me, nothing would be accomplished.”
Then the HEART spoke up. “Without me, pumping blood to your brain you could not function.”
The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong, without me to put food in the mouth, nothing would work.”
The LEGS quickly added. “Without me you couldn’t get your food”
The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”
The LUNGS bellowed back, “Without me, you couldn’t breathe.”
The EYES blinked, “Without me you could not see.”
The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”
The COLON meekly spoke up. “I am important. You need me to eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”
Everyone laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as we are. You’re just a smelly old sewer.”
The poor colon… his feelings were hurt. He turned away, and thought, I’ll show them. HE SHUT DOWN!! Then he sat back and watched what would happen.
The BRAIN was stupefied.
The HEART’S beat was weak.
The ARMS and LEGS were weak and couldn’t move.
The LUNGS breathing was shallow.
The EYES became cloudy.
The KIDNEYS quit.
Then the COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting.
It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was in total agreement.
The COLON WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN.
