Clean Up Your Mess!

How many times have you heard that in your life? I'm talking about the mess in your colon...

There's a lot of talk about cleansing these days. It's almost become a fad in some circles.

In other circles the whole concept is decried as a silly waste of time, while others, like myself, believe cleansing is an important part of maintaining long term health and healing.

So, what's the truth?
To cleanse or not to cleanse? That is the question...

We'll take a few minutes to consider some of the pro’s and con’s of colon cleansing so that you can decide for yourself if you think a natural colon cleanse would be beneficial to you and your health.

God designed the digestive tract to process the food we eat and the water we drink in an efficient manner. This allows all of our body's organs to get the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients they need to maintain optimum health. That is the ideal.

Sadly, most of us don't live in an ideal world. As a result of our busy lifestyles, we eat a lot of fast food and convenience foods that are prepackaged and lacking in any real nutrition. We eat more sugar and unhealthy fats than our ancestors ever dreamed of.

As we've talked about in previous newsletters, we're exposed to toxins everywhere we turn, and healthy water is only a dim memory.

It's no wonder that we suffer from a vast number of ailments at increasingly younger ages! Any machine that is not cared for properly will eventually seize up in one manner or another. The human body is much more magnificent than any man-made machine, but it still needs proper care and maintenance.

Let me tell you a little story...

A man bought a lovely new car. Over the years it faithfully took him from place to place. He filled it with gas as needed, washed it regularly, and added oil from time to time.

As he drove along one day he noticed some irregular noises coming form the engine. He dismissed it.

Later he noticed a new red light illuminated on the dash, and got an occasional whiff of an unusual smell. Again, he ignored it.

One day steam started pouring out of the engine when he stopped for gas. He proceeded to fill the gas tank and hoped and prayed the car would return to it's former efficiency.

overheating car on fire

As you can imagine, it wasn’t too long afterward that the poor man could be seen stranded along the side of the road waiting for the tow truck. The motor had seized, the transmission had overheated, and the car would cost more to repair than it was worth.

What a foolish man! His problems could have been prevented if he had paid attention to the warning signals and taken action when they first appeared.

If the man had chained the oil regularly, replaced the filters, flushed the transmission and practiced basic preventive maintenance the car would have served him well for many years to come.

Are we as foolish with the health of our bodies as this man was with his automobile?

Do we ignore the warning signs that something isn’t quite right and needs attending?

Natural colon cleansing is one of the first and best options when it comes to preventive maintenance for the human body. I agree with those opponents of colon cleansing that the bowels and intestines are designed to cleanse themselves.

But with the lack of good nutrition and the overload of junk they've been given, common sense and good judgment demand that we give our digestive system a bit of help on a regular basis.

When our digestive system gets bogged down and unable to function at its peak performance levels, little things start to go wrong. The body sends us warning signals in the form of headaches, indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, diarrhea, aching joints, skin rashes and many similar ‘minor’ conditions.

If we ignore these signals, we have no reason to be surprised when we are later diagnosed with more serious diseases like Diabetes, Fibro myalgia, Irritable Bowels Syndrome, MS, Crohns, and even Cancer.

Dr. Bernard Jensen wrote,
“In the 50 years I’ve spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people’s health problems. In treating over 300,000 patients, it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.”

Good bowel health is extremely important. Many of the nutrients we need are absorbed and transferred to the blood and the rest of our organs through the lining of our intestines. If the intestines are impacted or unhealthy from parasites and old fecal matter, the amount of nutrition your body can process is very limited, even if you are trying to eat ‘healthier’ foods.

That's why I give myself a yearly colon cleanse with fiber and herbs to flush out my system and allow my body to function more effectively. The cleanse I use (because I think it's the best) is Herbal Fiberblend. It is an all-natural blend of psyllium fiber and seventeen different anti-fungal and anti-parasitic herbs that work together to unclog and heal the digestive tract.

So, don't you think it's about time you cleaned up your mess?!

housecleaning ladies Give yourself a good colon cleanse! You’ll find that your body will detoxify itself, leaving your skin more healthy and vibrant.

Your chronic conditions will be eased and most likely vanish altogether. You may even be preventing a serious illness that you are currently racing towards without even realizing it.

I’ve told you some of the pro’s of natural colon cleansing, but what about the con’s? Colon cleansing will cost you something!

  • It will cost you money to purchase the Herbal Fiberblend.
  • It requires self discipline to take it faithfully twice a day.
  • It may even cause you to wrinkle your nose at the strong herb taste. (I suggest mixing it with grape juice.)
  • You may even feel worse before you start to feel better as your body goes through a period of detox.

Colon cleansing is not a miracle cure, but it gives the body the preventive maintenance it needs so that it can do the healing job that God designed it to do.

Order a couple pots of Herbal Fiberblend and start cleansing today! You'll be glad you did.

Until next time, To your good health!

P.S. How are you coping with the financial crunch we are experiencing around the world in recent days? One of my solutions has been to build an 'extra' income online in my spare time.

If it's an option you would like to consider, I highly recommend the SiteBuildIt program I've been using. They're currently running a great Halloween special. So, do yourself and your family a favor and take a few minutes to check them out.
