Health is Wealth
The foundation of a new building is the most important part of the building. it could break or crumble and cause the building to lean and eventually tip over. You have got to have a good, solid foundation.
When it comes to our health, we have to have a good foundation too. If your body’s foundation is weak our overall health can be affected. The foundation I am referring to it the colon, also known as the bowel or large intestine.
The Human Digestive System
Your Body is like a Vehicle, Your Car!!
If it gives you trouble, STOP! Why are you not maintaining it properly? You CAN control your Health Future.
Death begins in the Colon.
“There is only one disease & that disease is autointoxication, the body poisoning itself. “-V.E. Irons, Leading Authority & Specialist on Colon Health for 50 years.
Disease is not an entity, but a fluctuating condition of the patient’s body; a battle between the substance of disease and the natural self-healing tendency of the body.- Hippocrates, known as the “Father “ of Modern Medicine
The gastrointestinal system is our largest organ, it’s health is the foundation of a strong body, essential for the absorption of vital nutrients, a vigorous immune system, and the elimination of harmful toxins from the body. The length of your gastrointestinal tract is between 28 and 30 feet, with a surface area of nearly 6000 square feet. It your intestine becomes over loaded with poison( toxins that have not been eliminated through the bowel system ,it will overload the liver causing poisons to circulate in the blood vascular system which can cause disease. When colon is not functioning properly, our entire organism is compromised. If it is not functioning properly and bowel movements are not regular , waste products build up creating a health threatening domino effect that effects every organ and system of the body.
A healthy gastrointestinal tract contains trillions of micro-flora of about 60 varieties. These aid in the digestive system and manufacturing of nutrients, helping maintain a proper ph balance, and keep harmful bacteria in check.Intestinal micro-flora is a very essential and specialized part of the human body it is often referred to as an organ and system in itself.
The Intestinal System
The basic function of the colon is the elimination of waste, absorption of water and electrolytes ( essential body chemicals- sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium) and production of certain nutrients, mainly B vitamins and vitamin K.
The Large Intestine and Associated Conditions:
Elimination problems, Constipation, diarrhea.
Inflammation of the appendix.
Small, hard stool, gas, hemorrhoids
.Inflamed or spactic colon
.Lower abdominal pain
.Parasites, always standing with legs crossed, bowed legs, pelvis tilt.
Uric acid crystals in joints, toothache.

.Sore, tender breasts with menses. Always tired. Fatigue

The Intestines/ Stress Connection
Some causes of constipation are:
Stress and tension are major factors in causing intestinal problems. It has been stated that nearly 50 percent of stress occurs in the digestive tract.
Ways you can overburden the digestive system
1. Lack of drinking water
2. Not responding to the “call of nature” , the most likely reason for constipation
3. Lack of sufficient exercise , which causes the abdominal muscles to sag, and also the internal organs so it has to work harder to get the results.
4. Lack of proper food supply, minerals, especially calcium, phosphorus and iron
5. Food we eat is left inside us to digest for longer than 24 hours, toxins begin to form and could be passed into the blood stream from your colon, which would affect other body tissues.
“The main cause of death in simple terms is “ too much of the wrong stuff going into the body and not enough coming out.”- Unknown
