Want to know the “invisible” secret to being healthy all around?
What’s that you say? You had no idea there’s an invisible secret? There absolutely is.
Do you ever feel tired all the time? Bloated? Joint pain? Poor skin? Headaches? Aching muscles?
ALL of this can be a result of not using the “invisible” secret to being healthy.
What on earth am I talking about? Well, it’s something most people DON’T want to discuss and is usually, well… invisible to them: their colon.
If not taken care of properly, a toxic colon can lead to serious health problems like cancer and even heart disease. Plus, it contributes to all the symptoms I described above.
The reason your colon is so important is that it’s responsible for A LOT in keeping your body healthy. It acts like a filter that separates and breaks down water and the “waste” in your body. It also aids in nutrient absorption, removes harmful toxins and is responsible for keeping you “regular.”
The bad news is that the typical Australian diet is HORRIBLE for your colon health. Trans-fats, refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, antibiotics and hormones in the meat supply, and artificial sweeteners, etc are all contributors to an unhealthy colon.
Of course, you already know the one nutrient that’s key to colon health: FIBRE! Fibre is what helps “flush” out all those nasty toxins and useless waste. But here’s the thing — very few Australians get enough fibre. One study found if folks who barely ate any fibre in their diets, doubled their intake… their risk of colorectal cancer would drop by a whopping 40%!
Eating more fibre and “cleansing” your colon can lead to lowered risk of cancer, more energy, being more vibrant and feeling lightness and comfort in your abdominal region.
Good sources of fibre include nuts, fruits, seeds (i.e. pumpkin and sunflower) and psyllium husks. But you’ll may also want to cleanse your colon with one or more of these all-natural “waste” removers:
Marshmallow Root – This acts kind of like a “glue” that helps stick to waste and flush it out. It also helps protect and coat the intestinal lining.
Cascara Sagrada – Meaning “sacred bark” in Spanish, this natural laxative has been used for around 1,000 years to treat intestinal problems. It helps to stimulate the muscles of the colon to contract, effectively pushing out waste and toxins that have been stuck for years.
Rhubarb – This is a total colon “super food.” It stimulates your colon to keep you regular, it slows the growth of bad bacteria, and it neutralises toxins that may still be lingering around. Stay away from the leaves, however, as they can be toxic.
Colon health is VERY important to your overall health. DON’T ignore it.
