Weight Loss and your Colon

According to a natural colon cleanse is highly beneficial for everyone.

“One of the main theories behind colon cleansing is an ancient belief called the theory of autointoxication. This is the belief that undigested meat and other foods cause mucus buildup in the colon. This buildup produces toxins, the theory goes, which enter the blood’s circulation, poisoning the body.”

According to in an article entitled “How Can a Colon Cleanse Help Me Lose Weight by Lawrence Adams, the average person carries around 5 or more pounds of waste in their colon. You will lose that weight in a colon cleanse.

Not only does weight loss mean a healthier heart, less stress on your knees and joints and feet, but the less you carry around you middle, the more increases the chance you won’t have a heart attack. Tests have been done at numerous medical centers proving that weight carried around your middle increases the odds of heart disease. Losing weight has numerous health benefits.

According to Natural News psyllium is a healthy and natural way to cleanse your colon on an ongoing basis, without any special therapies or discomfort.

According to there are many conditions that can be improved by merely losing weight.

“Another very intriguing area of research is the role of small bowel bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) possibly contributing to weight gain, due to the production of methane gasses which may slow the motility down and ultimately lead to more absorption of calories. There are studies underway now looking into the role of bacterial manipulation for potential weight loss.”
