If we could correct only one function of the body’s chemistry and nothing else, I would concentrate on the colon. The colon is a major organ in maintaining health as well as the prevention of disease.
When elimination falls far short of requirements, toxic poison (toxemia) builds in the blood, leading eventually to degenerative disease.
Drugging pain of any kind checks elimination and prevents the human colon from cleaning house.
Every disease is a crisis of toxemia, which means that toxins have accumulated in the blood above the toleration point. When natural elimination fails, then the body produces a crisis to force elimination. Such crisis may come in the form of a cold or flu, pneumonia, headache or worse. Nature is trying to rid the body of toxic poisons. Any treatment that obstructs nature (such as drugs) only complicates self-curing.
Cancer is the culmination of years of abuse of nutrition as well as years of toxemia from faulty elimination.
It is very important to understand that toxic blood is caused by a toxic colon, the first source of all disease-producing toxins.
Commercial acid foods make up the primary diet of Americans, leading to the accumulation of poisons in the body, extremely poor elimination and, eventually, colon disease. The only sensible answer is added or supplemental fiber to repurify the blood and the body.
They say that death begins in the colon, but death really begins in our diet. The resulting problems show up in the colon. Everyone needs a practical knowledge of colon health. It’s about as serious as any health concern that anyone can have.
Colon health affects total health. We need to burn this into our minds.
According to the noted British researcher Dr. Dennis Burkitt, at least 10 of our most serious diseases are directly related to a lack of sufficient fiber in the diet. These include: heart attacks, diverticular diseases, appendicitis, colon cancer, hiatal hernia, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, diabetes, obesity (big stomach bloat) and constipation.
Aging compounds colon disease because of our soft food diet and lack of exercise. Primitive people had none of these diseases because of their high raw food diet, which was thus a fiber-containing diet.
There is no limit to the amount of fiber that the body can handle. The more fiber, the better your health can be.
We can’t have a primitive diet because it is simply not available. We have to supplement with daily fiber. This is very simple but serious and basic to health.
