What’s hidden in Your Colon? True story.

by Kim-Louise Easterbrook

Thirteen years ago my dear, 72-year-old grandma was waiting for her second colon operation. I told her about the benefits of clearing a congested colon. She was open to experimenting. A month later she rang me up all excited after she finished a cleansing. She had passed a surgical sponge left over from her last colon operation and was heading down to her doctor to show him. “That’s the last time he ever touches my colon!” she exclaimed. The possibility of preventing thousands of colon operations just by addressing the internal pollution going on inside sparked my interest in the study of alternative therapies.

First, I too, followed my grandma’s footsteps! My lifestyle for the past 27 years showed up in my stool. I passed black stools for almost a week. I lived on junk food back then, smoked and drank pop and coffee. Of course all the accumulated medication I had been given for the last year of my knee surgery, was still hidden in my colon. Years of undigested, unnatural substances can cement themselves along the colon walls and form a glue-like substance (hardened fecal matter), narrowing the passage way of the bowel.

Even though the bowels may move regularly every day, there is still some form of constipare, which in Latin means “pressed together.” Diagnosed with chronic constipation all those years, diverticulitis, spastic bowel syndrome, stress, you name it, I was a really serious case of “autointoxication,” a process whereby my body was literally poisoning itself by maintaining a cesspool of decaying matter in the colon.

Every time a normal bowel movement passed between and rubbed up against the hardened fecal matter, toxins were released back into my blood stream causing headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue and depression. I was also diagnosed with a sluggish lymphatic and circulatory system. These two circulating body fluids could no longer carry away the toxins from all my body cells. Imagine if the sewer system backed up in the city. That’s what was happening inside my body!

The Thief of Nutrients

The initial stages of auto-intoxication of the colon stem from:

  • Poor diet–foods that are dead, cooked, processed, microwaved and lack proper enzymes to assist in proper digestion and assimilation.
  • Over-consumption puts a great amount of stress on our digestive system. The stomach bloats as the digestive system goes into turmoil. Foods are not properly broken down and tend to lodge in the lower intestines. Vital nutrients are not absorbed.
  • Lack of water is a huge problem! As water makes up 75 percent of the human body, cleansing the inside of the body as well as the outside, water is instrumental in flushing out wastes and toxins. When the body does not receive enough water, toxins stagnate, hindering all digestive and eliminative processes.
  • Stress hinders the proper digestion, absorption and elimination of foods by throwing the digestive system out of balance. Nutrients are not absorbed if you’re under extreme stress.
  • Antibiotics strip the colon of necessary intestinal flora. They put the digestive and eliminative systems out of balance and create problems in the entire intestinal tract.
  • Lack of exercise weakens lymphatic and circulatory stimulation–the body’s natural cleansing systems.
  • Eating late at night means the body cannot rest. It’s busy digesting and processing your food.

Clear All Obstructions

Bowel management and colon cleansing are of utmost importance. When the bowel is dirty the blood is dirty. An obstructed colon will absorb the mucoid material in the lymph through its walls. As the colon’s walls become more obstructed with hardened fecal matter, its ability to detoxify the lymph decreases and the accumulation of mucoid matter begins to back up into the lymphatic system. Congestion results.

A toxic lymph is usually present during acute sickness: the appetite is lost and the body goes into fasting mode. Many herbal practitioners use bayberry bark or lobelia, both lymph purifiers.

The first step in cleansing the lymphatic system is to cleanse the colon. The second step is skin brushing, which helps stimulate the expulsion of fresh mucoid material and corrects inflammations of the lymph nodes. Many experts also believe that lack of exercise is another reason for improper lymphatic drainage. Purchasing a mini trampoline and bouncing up and down increases the circulation flow and allows the lymphs to do their cleansing. Many people experience a bowel movement after bounding.

Supplement cooked food with enzymes and eat as much live raw food as possible. Eat smaller meals throughout day. If you’re sick, try natural antibiotics like colostrum and goldenseal. Take deep breaths, relax, and drink at least eight glasses of water a day or more. Stretch regularly!

My grandma, bless her soul, passed away in an old-age home with severe auto-intoxication and a tangled colon. Her last words were, “I miss my garden-fresh vegetables. They keep feeding me medication for my constipation and it constipates me even more. I wish I could do that colon cleanse again, can you sneak it in?” I did sneak a bottle of natural cascara to her and she hid it and smiled. That was the last I saw of her.

One day I came by the desk to get some of her stuff and the nurse said, “I found this bottle in her coat one night when she was sleeping, so I put it behind the desk so that she couldn’t have access to it. We have to watch our seniors you know.”

I replied, “That’s too bad because she wasn’t trying to end her life. Those capsules were to help cleanse her colon from the constipation. Those capsules could have possibly saved her life.”

A Powerful Way to Enhance the Detoxification Process

Dry Skin Brushing

Dry Brushing was recommended by the Finnish medical doctor Dr., Paavo Airola for his patients 30 years ago and is still popular in European spas and many cancer treatment centers today. The Russians, Turks and Scandinavians have used this treatment for centuries. The technique is also known as Lymphatic Body Brushing.

Lymphatic System – Stimulating Lymph Flow

The lymphatic system is an essential part of our circulatory system. It’s the body’s housekeeper composed of a tiny, delicate network of lymphatic vessels all over the body that pump the lymph around the body.

Along the lymphatic pathways are collections of lymph nodes – 400 to 700 of them – dotted around the body. These filter and purify the lymph, reclaim fluid and break down pathogens and toxins. As well as cleansing and detoxifying, the lymph system reclaims digested fats and proteins, the body’s source of energy, and adds them to the body’s circulation.

The superficial lymph vessels terminate just below the outer layer of skin and flow back into the deeper lymphatic vessels. Any blockage at the superficial lymphatic level will result in congestion throughout the whole lymphatic system.

Skin-brushing is considered an excellent way to stimulate the activity of the entire lymphatic system – though no formal studies exist to demonstrate its effectiveness. It can also be a useful addition to any detox regime.

Skin – Improve the Texture and Appearance of the Skin; Diminish Cellulite

Although dry brushing advantages are obviously not only skin deep, this technique does provide extraordinary cosmetic benefits. Dry brushing exfoliates the skin and removes the outer layer of dull, dry skin. The appearance of the skin is noticeably softer and brighter. Dry skin brushing keeps toxins from polluting the skin, which promotes a clear, supple complexion. People who use this technique regularly notice reduced cellulite and better muscle tone.

Blood Circulation – Stimulates Peripheral Blood Circulation

Dry skin brushing increases circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes. Increased surface blood flow begins entering the areas brushed. Not only can this help speed healing of damaged tissue, but it brings oxygen and nutrients resulting in glowing skin.

Nervous system –Stimulates Cutaneous Mechanoreceptors

Dry skin brushing improve the function of the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin.

Prevention of the Preventative Measure

An excerpt from article in Common Ground that raises questions about screening and testing where it may not be necessary.

…..

Two impressive victories in the prevention propaganda war concerned widely promoted forms of medical screening, which promise to save us from the scourge of cancer. These victories reveal the large gaps between what many specialists say – about getting a mammogram or a PSA test – and the evidence gleaned from high-quality screening research. The year’s biggest triumph came when Danish researcher Peter C. Gøtzsche published an editorial in theCanadian Medical Association Journal noting, “The best method we have to reduce the risk of breast cancer is to stop the screening program.” He threw down the gauntlet by asking readers – mostly Canadian doctors – one simple question: “Which country will be first to stop mammography screening?”

Remember, mammography screening is looking for disease in otherwise healthy women.

Also in 2012, the PSA test – to evaluate a man’s level of ‘prostate specific antigen,’ a potential sign of prostate cancer – was deemed to cause more harm than good when the major independent screening group in the US – the United States Preventive Services Task force (USPSTF) – concluded it shouldn’t be offered to otherwise healthy, asymptomatic men. There is a great danger that men might be harmed through unnecessary treatment, which can often result in incontinence, impotence or both.

Remember, PSA screening is looking for disease in otherwise healthy men.

Essentially, the cleanest, most reliable, research around breast and prostate cancer screening programs showed they are probably harmful for most people being screened. We learned that the tests being promoted often find “pseudodisease” – things in your blood or body that would never have gone on to hurt you. Overly aggressive screening often leads to unnecessary breast and prostate cancer biopsies, surgeries, chemotherapies and drugs.
