Colon Health: A Personal Story


Vibrant Colon Health is an attainable state that is within the grasp of everyone. There are natural and assisted methods of sustaining proper colonic function. The medical community, in large part, does not support individual efforts to maintain (the) integrity of the colon. This contributes to the colon being overlooked, under-addressed as a key component of overall health. The typical occurrence of colonic polyps increases up to, approximately, age 60. This can be counteracted and beneficially re-aligned.

A healthy colon is a critical to a properly functioning human organism. There are practices and observances that contribute to optimal wellness of the colon. Daily activities can undermine proper colon health. Yet, the day to day actions can be gently directed (back) toward a healthier colon state. This does not require pharmaceutical intervention. A healthy colon is attainable and can be naturally maintained by an incrementally, step by step basis.

A healthy colon can be attained through movement, diet and cleansing. The colon is designed to function properly. It is through movement that proper colonic tone is sustained. Daily movement is not commonplace in society. Today’s fast food / convenience food culture does not always provide the nutrients / components that support colon health. Along with water, fiber is an important constituent of colon health. Also, many naturopaths suggest that undergoing periodic enemas sessions are phenomenal for supporting a healthy colon.  

The general medical community is not keen on home efforts to effect complete wellness of the colon. There are 10 recommendations that are put forth by the Gastrointestinal Institute of Southern California

  • Eat a balanced and High (soluble and insoluble)-Fiber Diet
  • Limit Fatty Foods
  • Take More Time to Chew
  • Incorporate Probiotics into your Diet
  • Stay Hydrated
  • Exercise Regularly
  • Eat at the Right Time bb
  • Manage Stress
  • Sleep
  • Get screened for colon health

Nonetheless, the colon is constantly accumulating fecal buildup that may not completely be eliminated from the body. The use of enemas by the general medical community is reserved for ‘special, cases.

  • Extreme constipation
  • Colonoscopy – Preparatory procedure
  • GI Tract X-Ray
  • IBD mitigation

The medical community largely downplays the use of enema by the general public in attaining optimal colon health.

Personally, I employ enemasbbb as part of my seasonal detox protocol. When done properly, enemas can be a safe part of maintaining colon health. For centuries, enemas were a routine home remedy. John Harvey Kellogg, M.D. reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease, in over 40,000 cases, he used surgery in only 20 cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise. I utilize a routine that was prescribed in an older volume written  by Dr. Bernard Jensen. I do it a part of seasonal cleanses that support the recuperation of the colon from the constant digesting, processing and (incomplete) elimination of ingested foods.  

What has been evidenced is that polyps are constantly being detected in the human body in all adult stages of life. Of particular interest is that a majority of polyps are being detected during the younger stages of life. Contributing factors may be:

  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • A decrease in physical activity
  • An increase in Body Mass Index
  • Poor dietary choices
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Smoking

“These risk factors do not completely explain the trends seen in young-onset colorectal cancer incidence, especially since the risk factors are also present in older individuals” according to Carol Burke, MD, Vice Chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Yet and still, the current majority of colorectal cancer cases are occurring during the later stages of life.

Personal experience has demonstrated that colon health is attainable and sustainable through exercise, proper diet and a consistent cleansing protocol. As a 60+ y. o. Black American Male, I am fortunate to have had two flawless (no polyps) colonoscopy exams in my lifetime. I have consistently adhered to a diet high in fruits / vegetables with additional fiber consumption. I maintain a regular exercise regimen. I have been detoxing / cleansing during the seasonal changes (spring / summer / fall / winter) for the last 13 years. I have recently up graded my detox / cleanse regimen. I truly believe that enemas, when wisely and cautiously utilized, can lend a huge boost to colon health and functionality. Yet, I am not recommending that anyone do anything. One must follow their own path when it comes to their health and seek proper advice when necessary.

A healthy colon is necessary for proper functioning of the human organism.  Movement, diet and regular cleansing are key to the healthy state of the colon . Home efforts to effect complete wellness of the colon are often not supported by the medical community. Personally, Regular enemas can positively affect a seasonal detox protocol. Studies reveal that polyps are constantly being detected in all adult stages of life. Personal experience has demonstrated that colon health can attained and sustained through exercise, proper diet and a consistent cleansing protocol.
