people are shocked to learn that the average
person holds between 5 and 10 pounds of putrefied fecal matter and
other foul material in the body.
you have any idea what's really in your body? Most people will
naturally list the obvious bones, muscles, blood, and of course the
primary organs. What most people don't realize is that for
most people, there is 8 to 10 lbs of rotted food, feces, and other
rotten and foul material.
average lifespan of humans has grown tremendously over the last 100
or so years. Advances in science and medicine, an
understanding of nutrition, and changes in public policy have
literally increased the average life expectancy by 75% or
more. It is not uncommon now to see people live well into
their 80's, 90's or even 100 years or more.
this change however, comes many degenerative diseases that were
relatively uncommon 100 years ago. Alzheimer's disease,
arthritis, cancer and a host of others are relatively new in human
culture because previously, most people didn't live long enough to
acquire them. Consequently, we end up with people that have
been termed "the walking wounded"... people that are only
alive because of the medications that they are on.
are of course many factors. But one of the major ones is the
vast amount of putrefied materials that we carry around with
us. Our bowels are not working properly because of an
imbalance in the body causing auto-intoxication.
is well understood that with so much garbage in our intestines, an
imbalance can easily cause some of the corruption to leak out into
the rest of the body.
Though the body is an amazing creation
and can handle a certain amount, continuous release of toxins into
the body eventually weaken immune systems and can lead to
degeneration of important systems and an intoxication of the body.
intestinal tract has two primary functions
digestion and delivery of nutrients to the rest of the body.
Elimination of undigested food and waste
The intestinal tract is an
amazing set of organs that start with the mouth, chewing and adding
saliva to the food to start the digestive process.
As the food moves through the
esophagus, stomach, and the intestines, it is further broken
down. Nutrients are pulled from the food, and the balance is
eliminated from the body in the form of feces.
people don't have very healthy bowel systems. Constipation,
diarrhea, and a host of digestive disorders keep quite a few doctors
and drug companies in business.
reasons for this are simple. The primary cause of poor bowels
are improper diet. Foods are processed instead of fresh.
Food is often over-cooked. Preservatives inhibit the proper absorption
of nutrients and many foods have a significant amount of
salt, fats and sugars are put into foods to make them more tasty,
but these are death to the bowels. Fiber is often purposely
pulled out of foods to soften the texture and that is the material
that helps to keep the gut clean.

doses of antibiotics and other medications that kill off good
bacteria and it's no wonder we end up with a gastric
we age, there is also a natural decrease in the amount of digestive
enzymes that are produced, leading to further gastric dysfunction.
Put it all together and the human body absorbs fewer nutrients and
leaves more putrefied fecal matter behind. This builds up and
sets the stage for disease.
has a wide array of good bacteria in their intestines. Under
proper circumstances, these flourish and help the digestive
process. In a bad environment however, these good bacteria die
and leave room for the development of parasites and yeast such as

"leaky gut syndrome". Leaky gut syndrome is the
primary cause of toxins entering the blood stream from the intestine

human body is generally great at handling the abuse that we give
it. At some point however, treating your bowels poorly catches
up... slowly and almost unnoticeably. Effects such as gas,
bloating, nausea, aches and pains are often attributed to age or
special circumstances when in fact, they are symptoms of a greater
problem resulting from a long history of improper diet.
symptoms of a dysfunctional bowel system often include a lack of
energy, lack of resistance to infection, headaches, gas, and a host

on reducing or eliminating the symptoms of unhealthy bowels; but
regardless, the figure is staggering.
often make the mistaken assumption that because they have alleviated
the symptom, they have cured the problem. In fact, the symptom
is the cause of a greater problem that can't be handled by downing a
few antacids or swallowing a few ounces of pink chalk.
things get worse, other more serious problems begin to appear
ranging from Crohn's disease, immune deficiencies, cancer, and even
rheumatoid arthritis. The list goes on... and on.
does it begin? Generally during childhood. But as we live
longer and consume more red meat, white flour, sugar, JUNK FOOD,
coffee, antibiotics, prescription and over the counter medications,
the problem compounds.
however, all is not lost. Senior adults won't necessarily regain the bowel function that they had when they were 25, but most
people can notice a significant improvement in bowel performance if
the follow the right track:
drink way too little water. Many people will go an entire day
without drinking a single glass but derive their liquids from
coffee, tea, soda, milk, beer, liquor, and juices. Those are
not water! Your body needs water to allow its organs to
function properly and to help eliminate waste. For most
people, enough water means 8 glasses per day. I know, that
sounds like a lot... and it is. But it's what your body needs.
can also stop further deterioration by changing your diet to include
more fresh foods including several healthy helpings of vegetables
and fruits per day. Avoid junk foods. Endorsement by an
athlete doesn't change garbage into a wholesome food.
large amounts of refined sugar and refined wheat products,
especially those that contain yeast. When you do eat breads,
go to those such as whole wheat or rye bread. They add more
fiber to your diet and aren't as easily broken down into sugars.
alcohol and don't take medications that you don't really need.
Both of these kill beneficial bacteria in your intestinal tract and

are lifestyle changes that can help to prevent further
problems. Other more immediate actions can also be taken
including intestinal and cellular cleansing, elimination of
parasites, and reintroduction of beneficial bacteria.
before going on any of these programs, you should check them out
with your primary care physician to determine your plan of
action. Improperly treatment programs or other personal
conditions may be ineffective or cause further problems.
