You may have decided to lose weight but don’t fully understand how important it is to your fat loss to be healthy. Eating healthy and exercising may not be enough if your body isn’t receiving all of the nutrients you are consuming.

“The average person over 40 has between 5 and 25 pounds of build-up in their colon. Parasites of all sizes thrive in this indisposed residue of fecal matter, slowly but surely toxifying the whole body.” Dr. Bernard Jensen

The important part of the above quote when you are trying to lose weight is that you may be carrying around anywhere from 5 to 25 pounds of built up fecal matter. This means you may experience an immediate weight loss of 5 to 25 pounds just by doing a colon cleanse.

“Parasites are a major cause of obesity since they deprive the body of the proper nutrients and leave us only empty calories as leftovers. The body also starts craving more and more food as it is starved for the ever so needed vitamins and minerals.” Dr. Donald Kelly

The above quote tells us that failure to properly cleanse the colon leaves us susceptible to parasites that may invade our body and consume nutrients you need for optimal health. Since the parasites are eating the good nutrients, you are still hungry and eat more. As a result of this malnutrition and overeating, your body is likely to store some of the nutrition it receives as fat to help ensure survival.

“Elimination of undigested food and other wastes from the body is as important as the correct digestion and assimilation of food. I can think of virtually nothing more vital than the prevention of the danger posed by obvious harmful effects of toxic poisons resulting from neglect and inability to effectively eliminate waste and debris from the body. Too few realize that inability to effectively eliminate debris from the body leads to such strong decomposition and fermentation in the colon that neglected accumulation of such decomposing matter can easily lead and, usually does lead to slow death.” Dr. Norman Walker

Failure to eliminate the undigested food and toxic poisons mentioned above robs you of the energy you need to feel good, maintain your health and to properly burn the calories you consume. Some of these calories may lie in your colon undigested but some may be turned to fat.

Water delivers nutrients from your colon to other parts of your body where they are used. If you have undigested foods, toxic poisons and other waste in your colon the normal delivery of both waste and nutrients is disrupted.

“Of all the polite topics of conversation, the state of one’s intestines is probably at the bottom of most people’s lists. Let’s face it: Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gas, diverticulitis and colon cancer are simply not things we like to discuss. And yet, as the old expression goes, death begins in the colon. Don’t believe it? Ask any coroner. Autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material.” – Vegetarian Times, March, 1998

You don’t have to risk your health by being over weight and carrying around waste and toxins that may cause problems. Weight loss and a healthy colon go together like a hand and glove so please consider a grabbing a colon cleanser free trial and or beginning a weight loss program and give your overall health a fighting chance.

colonThe medical community has been debating the need for colon cleansers for quite some time. This article is to inform you so you can make an informed decision.

The human body was designed with a diet high in fiber and water consumption in mind PLUS a lot of exercise.

Proper hydration according to an article I recently read can be figured out by taking your body weight and dividing it by 2 and this will give you the number of ounces of pure water you should drink each day. IF you are doing strenuous exercise or are in extreme weather conditions, your water needs may vary.

A high fiber diet, according to a couple of different sources, is 20-30 grams of soluble fiber for women and 30-40 grams of soluble fiber for men with the best sources being fruits, vegetables and whole grain cereals.

Daily exercise such as walking, strength training, aerobics or physical labor are also necessary to help promote colon health.

If you fall short in any of the 3 areas mentioned above, you may have hard stools, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation or diverticular disease and need a colon cleanser to help you clean out your system.

When your body was designed, many of the toxins you are exposed to almost daily weren’t part of life. The air is polluted by automobiles and businesses and you inhale some of these poisons every time you breathe. Processed foods may contain man made preservatives that don’t naturally occur in nature. White sugar and white flour do not help your body. Many people include fried foods, large portions of red meat and artificial sweeteners with very few vegetables or fruits in their diets.

If you fit this group, you may need to help your body get rid of these toxins and the extra waste once or twice a year by using a colon cleanser.

I invite you to check out the Colon Cure to see if the information helps you decide if you would benefit from a colon cleanser.

Iron is probably more important than you were taught and you probably weren’t taught that too much iron can be toxic and cause you problems. Iron deficiencies may manifest itself as anemia, fatigue, constipation, brittle nails, menstrual problems or restless leg syndrome in adults.

Children are usually born with enough iron in their tissues to sustain growth for 6-12 months so they don’t need additional iron in their diet. Breast milk is almost completely devoid of iron yet many baby formulas are fortified with iron which often leads to babies that are very uncomfortable because of bloating and gas discomfort otherwise known as colic. A baby is born with stomach bacteria designed to digest breast milk and not artificial formulas that contain ingredients not normally found in breast milk. Given this information, it’s easy to understand why so many infants are fussy and crying when their poor mothers are on the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Program because the infant formula obtainable through this U.S. government program is iron fortified.

Iron is a key element in the metabolism of humans and almost every other living organism. This element is vital to hundreds of proteins and enzymes in the human body.

Your blood is partially made up of hemoglobin and myglobin proteins. These two proteins make up about 2/3rd’s of your body’s iron supply. Hemoglobin’s role is to transport oxygen from your lungs to the tissues and organs that need it throughout your body. Myglobin is a protein that supplies oxygen to your muscle cells and helps with proper oxygenation of your muscles when they are active.

Other enzymes and proteins that contain iron perform the following functions:

  • energy metabolism
  • electron transport
  • antioxidant functions
  • beneficial pro-oxidant functions
  • oxygen storage
  • DNA Synthesis
  • regulation of intercellular iron

As with many other vitamins and minerals your body utilizes there is an interaction between iron and other nutrients.

  • Zinc, when acquired from supplements, may have lower absorption rates when combined with iron supplements on an empty stomach.
  • Consuming foods that contain calcium and iron in the same meal may reduce the amount of iron the body absorbs.
  • A deficiency in vitamin A will make a deficiency of iron even worse.
  • An adequate level of copper is needed for normal red cell formation and iron metabolism.

The amount of iron you need will vary according to your sex, age, lifestyle and activity level. For example, menstruating women lose iron as a normal part of the menstrual cycle so more iron is needed during this period. Pregnant women lose iron to their developing fetus and placenta so additional iron is needed during pregnancy and people regularly engaging in strenuous exercise or activity may need more iron than someone with a less active lifestyle.

Iron can be obtained naturally in a variety of foods in two different types. Heme and nonheme iron are in different foods. Heme iron is more readily absorbed and used by your body and its absorption is less influenced by the rest of your dietary intake. Nonheme iron is absorbed using a different mechanism than heme iron so your dietary intake and iron levels play a larger role in the amount you absorb.

The sources of heme iron are the hemoglobin and myglobin in the meat, poultry and fish you eat and sources of nonheme iron are iron supplements, iron salts, meat, dairy products, bananas, black molasses, prunes, raisins, whole rye, walnuts, kelp and lentils.

Since vegetarians receive nonheme iron in their diets and many factors can inhibit the absorption of iron, it is recommended that vegetarians take special care to increase the iron in the diet.
