It’s still the holiday season (for me, anyway). I don’t let it end 'til after my birthday mid-January. I still see clients, but that’s not work. That’s just helping people.
I had a conversation with a friend who was concerned about bleeding from the bowel. My first question was, “Are you straining or trying to force it out when you go?" They answered, “Yes.” I said, “Drink more water and eat more foods high in fibre.”
Over this extended festive season, it’s easy to eat a whole lot of food that isn’t necessarily healthy for you. Junk foods are the quickest things to clog your bowel and make those very necessary bowel movements more difficult than they should be.
The best thing you can do is give your large intestine (colon, bowel) a good clean out. You can do this easily by giving yourself a high-water enema at home. They’re simple to do, and you’ll feel amazing afterwards. Keeping your colon functioning well is the best thing you can do. In my opinion, it’s the most important organ of all to look after; if you don’t, all the others will become weak and get sick, and if your organs get sick, you get sick!
Here’s a tale that, while funny, has a valuable lesson.
"I should be in charge,” said the brain, "because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen."
"I should be in charge," said the blood, "because I circulate oxygen all over, so without me you'd waste away."
"I should be in charge," said the stomach," because I process food and give all of you energy.”
"I should be in charge," said the legs, "because I carry the body wherever it needs to go."
"I should be in charge," said the eyes, "because I allow the body to see where it goes."
"I should be in charge," said the rectum, "because I’m responsible for waste removal."
All the other body parts laughed at the rectum and insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight. Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, the legs got wobbly, the eyes got water, and the blood was toxic.
They all decided that the rectum should be the boss.
What’s the moral of the story? Ask yourself, “What are you putting into your mouth, and how much of it and how easily will it come out?”
If the house cleaning isn't done, things start to build up.
The elimination process is easy if we’re only putting good stuff into our bodies. If we haven’t been eating well, there are simple ways we can clean out the garbage stuck in the colon. At a minimum, we need to be having a bowel movement once a day. Measure from the tip of your middle finger to your elbow. This is a good measure of how much we need to pass in a day. For some, that may take a few times throughout the day; for others it may pass all at once first thing in the morning.
Cleaning out the colon is the most important thing you can do for yourself. How long would you last in your home if your plumbing was blocked and it all started backing up? That’s exactly what it does in our bodies. By giving yourself a high-water enema, you’re giving your colon a bath to flush out the waste.
Enemas clean out the colon and leave you feeling cleaner, lighter and healthier almost immediately. The main job of the colon is to absorb water and nutrients from food and remove waste and toxins. Over the years, the colon walls can become encrusted with non-eliminated waste, making it sluggish and inefficient. It's not such a bad idea when you consider the average person may have up to five kilograms or more of stored waste in the large intestine.
