The colon plays a key role in the body. It helps maintain proper digestion, supports the immune system, and it controls a person’s water balance. Did we forget to mention that the elimination of waste is dependent on a healthy and functioning colon? So you could say that keeping your colon healthy is in your best interest.
What you may not know is that an unhealthy colon, which is often filled with toxins and waste, can lead to a number of health problems. These toxins, which build up in the colon, can be from environmental pollutants or, more commonly, unhealthy foods like meat, dairy products, and processed foods. All of these foods are hard on the digestive system and can lead to constipation or other digestive health issues.
Symptoms of a toxic colon can include:
Immune System Problems: skin rashes, vaginal infections, urinary tract problems, or frequent colds.
Mood Changes: feelings of anxiety, depression, foggy thinking, fatigue, or poor memory.
Digestive Tract Issues: constipation, stomach pain, bloating, indigestion, diarrhea, or gas.
You can cleanse your colon a number of ways, but it is recommended that you eat healthily when trying to do so. If you choose to cleanse with juices & smoothies, make sure that you aren’t eating a bunch of processed foods and meat.
