Colon is part of the digestive system, and as the founder of Body Ecology, Donna Gates, explains, maintaining a healthy colon and digestive system means maintaining an optimal health and well-being.
As a matter of fact, each of your cells and tissues, as well as the main detox organ in the human’s body – the liver, rely on a healthy colon.
More exactly, having a healthy colon would enable proper elimination of all toxins from your body.
The colon receives all waste products from the blood, throat, liver, lungs, sinuses, and lymph system. Also, it has to deal with any undigested fecal matter by removing it from the body.
But, it can also receive some leftover nutrients like vitamins, electrolytes, and water from digested foods, which can be brought back so the body can use them.
If your colon doesn’t work properly, it wouldn’t be able to perform these crucial processes in the body. In such case, all waste products and toxins will just build up in it, causing numerous health problems.
According to medical experts, the food digestion lasts from 24 to 44 hours. In other words, this is the time the food you’ve consumed will process through the bowels and colon, and leave your body as waste.
So, when you consume processed foods which lack nutrients, like fibers and enzymes, your body will need 70 hours to complete the digestion. This, in turn, will result in 20 pounds of waste in your colon.
This toxic buildup in your colon can cause constipation followed by irregular and painful bowel movements.
