The famous Greek physician, Hippocrates said that “Death begins in the colon.” The physician lived about 2400
years ago. But he knew that keeping the colon clean was critical to good health. In fact, today more than 50 million Americans suffer from bowel issues. Some cause annoying symptoms such as headaches or acne but are not serious, while others can make you ill such as colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Constipation. The truth is that the average person can have 5-20 pounds of waste material in their colon. For up to 70 hours when someone with a healthy digestive system should process the food in less than 24 hours. A lot of these digestive problems are due to poor diets that lack natural fibers and enzymes. Another problem is too much refined sugar in the average diet.
