Hints for colon health

1.
What happens in the colon starts with what goes into the mouth. No one would dare put the wrong fuel in their car for fear of damaging the engine; but few worry about what sort of fuel they put into their bodies.
A diet of fresh organic foods – grains, vegetables, fruits, meats and fish – would be a more desirable fuel for the human body. As opposed to junk and processed foods containing additives, preservatives, artificial colourings and flavours, white flour, sugars, herbacides, fungicides, artificial fertilisers, flesh from animals and fish bred on hormones and anti-disease drugs. This is made worse by excessive alcohol and drug consumption.

Every time we open our mouth to eat or drink something we should take a few seconds to ask our body whether it is happy with our decision or not.

Any given food, even "The healthiest," can have opposite bio-chemical influences in different metabolic types. In effect, one person’s food can be another
person’s poison.

Stress, worry and unhappiness will also upset our digestive system and cause the muscles of our colon to constrict and go into spasm. She has some stressed, over-worked clients who, when in London, present digestive and elimination problems, but which miraculously disappear when they are on holiday or change something fundamental in their life-style.

Quantum Wave Therapy, which Margie uses in her clinic, is an excellent complement to Colonic Hydrotherapy because it acts on the neuro-vegetive system with anti-stress effects, stimulates digestive and bowel peristalsis.

Margie also discusses with clients their spiritual direction. We can eat the best foods, but if we are negative and bear grudges we end up poisoning ourselves anyhow. Gratitude is a great anti-stress medicine.

Our teeth are for chewing, not only for smiling. Without adequate chewing, even the best foods cannot be digested properly.

When food is not chewed properly, the blending of food and saliva is inadequate; and the food particles which go from the mouth to the stomach are too large for the stomach to handle. The stomach then has to pass the undigested particles into the small intestine where the absorption of nutrients into the blood stream is supposed to take place. But as the mouth and stomach have not done their respective tasks, the small intestine cannot take on the overload and so dumps it into the colon. The poor colon gets one undigested meal after another. As it has no other organ to pass the buck to, the colon rebels by producing IBS, gas, bloating and constipation, which eventually becomes chronic.

Chewing is therefore vital for good health, because without good digestion there can be no proper absorption of nutrients.

An American couple I knew in Geneva had been interned in a Japanese concentration camp in Manila, together with 2,500 others, following the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Only 500 survived by the end of the war in August 1945. Margie asked them what was their secret for survival.
They said: "The will to live and chewing." They would even chew water to extract some nutrients.

Another lady in Paris had suffered all her life with digestive problems. Her naturopath put her on a diet of grains and vegetables and told her to chew each mouthful 200 times! She did this religiously and after three years she developed a fully-functioning digestive system!

Nature requires that we move, stretch, bend, lift etc. Like an automatic, self-winding watch, we must be active always. We have to choose whatever exercise is most suitable for us – but move we must. The colon loves abdominal exercises and stress is relieved by exercise and deep breathing. Exercising tones the muscles and strengthens the body. Modern sedentary lifestyles create sluggish and inefficient metabolic systems.

If we were living in an ideal world we would have access to good fresh food,unpolluted air, pure water and a stressfree environment to provide our bodies with optimal nutritional support for cellular repair and healthy cell function and would thus delay the ravages of ageing. But, lamentably, we do not have such a world; we have to make realistic compromises, consisting of, for example, regular intake of pre-biotics, pro-biotics, soil based organisms and other nutrients. A competent Nutritionist is a treasure of our times.

Nature intended for us to have bowel movements in a squatting position. This is the only position which provides full support for the bowel, enabling a complete evacuation. Until modern toilets were invented, our ancestors used only the squatting position. Sitting on a toilet with our feet on the floor leaves the bowel unsupported, thus promoting incomplete evacuation. The only solution readily at hand now is to place a stool under our feet, so that when seated on the toilet and slightly bent forward, our thighs can support the bowel. This is as close as possible to the original squatting position.

Last but not least: It is important to have colonics regularly. Colonics are indispensable for vibrant health, good complexion, bright clear eyes, rejuvenation and much more. Some people think if they follow a good diet and exercise regime, they can do without colonics. Not true. Waste deposits can get trapped in the colon and cause ‘a traffic jam’ no matter what they eat.
