Good Health Begins with a Healthy Colon
Active bowel movement (2 - 3 times daily) is essential for good healthy and outer beauty. Present day ailments are often a direct result from an unhealthy colon. It has been stated by the Royal Society of Medicine from Great Britain that more than 65 different health problems are caused by an unhealthy colon and an average person may have 1 - 12 kilograms of build-up waste present witihin the colon. This would subsequently lead to diseases brought about by the accumulation of bacteria and toxins within the colon. Threrefore, internal cleansing is required for a healthy, active lifestyle, especially in a fast-paced society where the consumption of fast food is considered a norm

Bowel movements should occur 2-3 times daily after each meal. Irregular movements could be the cause of a dysfunctioning colon. The colon serves the liver as well as the body"s entire organs. It is important to ensure that the colon is clean and functions properly, or else other organs may be affected.

Clogged Intestinal Tract: The cause of aging, wrinkles, gray hair
Chronic constipation could speed up the aging process. When the tiny Holes in the Intestinal Tract/Colon are covered with Intestinal plaque, the following conditions will result:
Old cells, fat and other undigestible and incomplete digested substances cannot be eliminated properly, and accumulation of these old wastes causes wrinkles and other aging (degenerative) problems.
Nutrients cannot be absorbed that causes vitamin deficiency
Foods that Become Intestinal Plaque, if not digested and broken down properly:
ALL Animal Products (Meat, Fish, Fowl, Chicken, Eggs)
Dairy Products (Milk, Cheese, etc.)
Saturated Fats/Oils (Olive Oil, Vegetable Oils)
Refined Grain Products (Oats, Rice, Wheat, etc.)
