Colonic-How a toxic colon can affect you.

The most common affect is irritation and inflammation of the colon: general symptoms can be diarrhea, constipation, spastic colon, fatigue, headaches, dull eyes, poor skin, spots, aching muscles, joint pains, and depression.
Toxins can affect the lymphatic system, and be circulated through the lymphatic system to all parts of the body. The lymphatic system is designed to nourish cells not fed by blood vessels and to kill off harmful organisms, and carry away the refuse. If the body has to pump excessive toxins around for any length of can get overwhelmed, allowing a disease to take over.
Being constipated or only “going” small amounts can cause the colon to stretch to accommodate the fact that you are eating more than you are eliminating. This can cause the muscles of the colon to lose tone. Doctors call this “lazy” or “sluggish colon”. If this goes to the extreme it is called a “Mega Colon”. This can cause ballooning of the colon or formation of pouches called diverticula, leading to a condition known as diverticulosis. The food trapped in these pockets creates a breeding ground for bacteria. The result can be diverticulitis, an infection where there is often a fever and acute abdominal pain. Once infection takes hold medical help is needed.
Besides direct problems of the colon any number of problems can come from Toxic build up. MOST diseases and illnesses are caused by a combination of two things.
1. Lack of what the body needs, as in real nutrition. Foods that are going to give your body the vitamins, minerals and live enzymes that it needs to produce strong healthy new cells. Whole foods that have not had chemicals, hormones or anti-biotics added to them. Foods that have not been processed or microwaved until the body can not even recognize the molecular structure.
2. Too much of what is bad for the body. This comes to us in so many ways it is too hard to cover them all here. Chemicals, pollution, and preservatives to name a few.
These things can compromise the immune system. A compromised immune system can cause any number of illnesses and some symptoms that you may not associate with illnesses such as depression, fatigue, headaches, nervousness, insomnia, loss of concentration, lack of sexual responses, skin blemishes or rashes, sallow complexion, dark circles under the eyes, brittle hair and nails, body odor, and many others.
