What is a Colon?
Simply, it’s the large intestines, roughly 5’ long. The final stretch of the 30-foot digestive tract: the mouth, esophagus, stomach, duodenum & small intestines, then the colon/large intestines. The colon is where final nutrient extraction and dehydration occur. The end of the line, before the final exit—the anus. And, when the colon stalls, crashes, or plugs up, something didn’t go right in the 25 feet of the digestive tract prior to the colon.
Seriously, this may become an uncomfortable issue. Not only to talk about it, live with, but also to make the necessary changes to eradicate the issue prior to doctors getting involved. Doctors will be needed, if you have too many “back-ups”, to resolve or manage the possible disease or disorders that may result. Seriously, let’s look at a few of the diseases or disorders that may occur with chronic colon “back-ups”, otherwise known as chronic constipation:
- Bowel Obstruction
- Bowel Adhesions
- Colon Polyps
- Colon Cancer
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Leaky Bowel Syndrome
- And more…

Additionally, this “back-up” affects primary colon functions such as, absorption of final nutrients from the food matter, to water absorption, maintaining the body’s fluid balance, and eliminating excess nutrients and toxic waste. This leaves the colon prone to invaders such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and yeast. And, you run the risk of the stagnate stool being absorbed back into the body via the intestinal membrane. Yikes and Yuck!
Keep in mind that the colon is one of the five elimination organs in our body. When it crashes, the other four organs, the liver, kidneys, lungs, or skin, take on the burden, which is a whole other set of issues!
Colon care techniques are simple to apply if you are ready for a long-term change. Let’s look at some of the remedies:
- Water, water and more water;
- Chewing your food completely before drizzling it down your esophagus;
- Cleansing with Colonics, colema boards, or enemas;
- Herbal formulas or binders;
- Parasite, fungal, or heavy metal cleanses;
- High water-content and probiotic rich foods;
- Fiber, and so much more!

There’s a great analogy on page 200: Intestinal Health ~ A Practical Guide to Complete Abdominal Comfort http://amzn.to/2ckb2Mm
It’s called “Mildew in the Shower” and compares care for your shower much like care for your colon where it is dark, damp, and anaerobic. It starts with this:
~ Imagine that you finish your shower, step out, close the curtain, turn off the light and fan, and close the door to your bathroom. Over time, this damp, dark, anaerobic environment may lead to a buildup of mildew on the walls, in the corners, and on the ceiling. Left unattended, this situation may develop into dry rot affecting the walls, floors, and ceiling. In addition, if this dark, damp, anaerobic environment goes unused for a period of time, fungus and critters (parasites) may begin to move in and thrive in this very accommodating environment.
Then the analogy does a comparison like this:
~ The same goes for our intestinal tract. When our digestion slows down due to improper chewing and/or consuming indulgence foods and beverages, soon enough, our insides are bound to develop “mildew in the shower”! … This analogy continues in detail on page 200.
Ideally, you will want to cleanse and rebuild your intestinal tract to have your bowels move regularly, fostering and maintaining equilibrium in your intestinal tract. This will require a shift your lifestyle and eating habits. Healthy digestion results in a healthy body, and mind!
