Is Your Colon Overdue for a Cleanse?

What if there was one organ in your body that had the power to control the way you look, feel and think? And what if this organ serves as a common denominator for most of today’s health problems?
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, anywhere from 60 to 70 million people in the U.S. are affected annually by some kind of digestive diseases, which are all too often related to an unhealthy colon. In 2015, the CDC reported that about 3 million adults were diagnosed with IBD (either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis), and this estimate does not include children aged <18 years, who may also have IBD. It is also estimated that 75% of people older than 45 suffer from hemorrhoids and 63 million people suffer from chronic constipation. The American Cancer Society projects 135,430 individuals newly diagnosed in 2017 with colorectal cancer with 50,260 deaths from that disease.

The gut is literally the gateway to health.
There is no part of the body, no disease, no organ system – that the gut does not directly or indirectly affect. Studies have confirmed that not only does the gut transfer food to vital organs, but it plays a role in our physical health, mental health, emotional stability, immunology, neurology, endocrinology, and pathology.
Our Microbiome Are As Unique As Our Fingerprints
Our body is, in fact, a complex ecosystem made up of more than 100 trillion microbes (10 times the number of human cells!) that must be properly balanced and cared for if we are to be healthy.
