Colon Cancer Prevention Through Colon Cleansing

Prevention of Colon Cancer and Polyps. A typical American diet tends to be low in fiber and digestive enzymes. Hence your body produces more digestive enzymes at the expense of immune system enzymes. The low level of fiber prevents your large intestine from cleaning itself. This leads to a buildup of toxins and waste. The accumulation of toxic matter in the digestive system can give rise to colon cancer. It is possible that your weakened immune system will not be able to fight the disease.

It is possible to get rid of the toxic matter through colon cleansing. With this procedure, your large intestine can participate more effectively and efficiently in the digestive process and allow the production of immune system enzymes to return to normal.

There are several ways to cleanse your large intestine. One of the more popular methods is known as hydrotherapy, where a small disposable plastic hose is inserted into you to irrigate the colon. A licensed natural health practitioner must perform this procedure.

Enemas can also cleanse the colon, but they have been shown to only clean the bottom portion and rectum. Herbal supplements are often used in colon cleansing as well. A plant product called psyllium is most usually the base of these treatments. The psyllium’s fiber expands when it comes in contact with water, and the bulky material causes the bowel to contract and expel waste.

There are also oxygen based cleaners that turn the waste into liquid or gas and help it to be expelled.

Another colon cleansing method is to do juice fasting. Juice fasting provides your entire digestive system a chance to take a break and for normal functioning after the break. You are not deprived of nutrients either as you will be sustained by the juices during the cleansing period.

In summary, colon cancer is preventable. If you find yourself regularly consuming meals that are low in fiber, consider doing a body detoxification. A clean colon is a healthy one and a better immune system for your body.
