A part of healthy body is the proper function of the colon as it has a very significant role in digestion, immunity and maintaining water balance in the body. If it doesn’t function properly, then the toxic will be held longer and the waste won’t move efficiently. The toxins will be absorbed in the colon wall leading directly into the bloodstream.
The food transit in the colon is less than 24 hours if the colon is healthy, but will all the modern dietary habits which involve foods that lack enzymes, fiber and nutrients, the food transition is slowed down to 70 hours which leads to toxic colon and around 20 pounds of accumulated waste. One of the most common sign is constipation which occurs when the waste moves too slowly through the large bowel causing infrequent and/or painful elimination.
These are the symptoms of toxic colon:
- Digestive symptoms: constipation, bloating, diarrhea, gas, stomach pain, indigestion;
- General health;
- Joint and muscle pain;
- Behavioral symptoms: depression, fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, mood swings, poor memory;
- Poor immune system, recurrent vaginal or bladder infection, skin rashes.
The blood capillaries to the colon start picking up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it steeps through the bowel wall and all tissues and organs start taking toxic substances. Here begins a true autointoxication on a psychological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber (very hard and black).
