Here’s a scary fact: More than 50 million Americans have bowel issues related to colon health. Sure, some of the problems are minor like acne, sleepiness, and headaches, but there are others that are very serious.
Here are some of them:
- Acid Reflux
- Crohn’s Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Often, colon issues lead to colostomy surgery. The numbers say that there are more than 100,000 people each year.
Here’s another scary fact: Certain healthcare professionals say the average person has between 5 and 20 pounds of toxic waste in their colon.
Up to 80% of the diseases and the discomfort people experience may be related to a problematic colon.
A big part of the problem is the fast and “modern” lifestyle we all like to live in. In other words, the food we are consuming lacks natural fibers, enzymes and have too much-refined sugar.
How can we fix this
As the title of this article suggest: Colon cleanse. This is one the ways to take care of your colon. Even the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates of Cos (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC) claimed this. Fortunately, the modern science has shown that he was correct.
