The colon is part of the body’s digestive system. The digestive system removes and processes nutrients (vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and water) from foods and helps pass waste material out of the body. If you avoid nutrition and proper healthcare, especially when your 50 +, and you don’t have regularly scheduled colonoscopies, you greatly increase your odds of developing colon cancer.
There are several sure fire ways to ensure health, we should all make sure we take these precautions at every age in order to prevent colon cancer and other diseases. If you want to maintain a healthy digestive tract you should first off be eating a healthy, well balanced diet. If we spend just a little time researching the amount of calories we need to intake, (which is judged by our height, weight, and size), then we should make sure to intake those calories, but in a healthy way. We need to intake our dark green vegetables like spinach and broccoli, as well as a proper amount of protein, fiber, and calcium. We should all research what foods contain which vitamins, minerals, and nutrients our bodies need to survive and thrive, and then make sure we intake them while simultaneously taking a good multi-vitamin.
We also should take part in regular flushes of our digestive tract which, of course, our colon is a part of. When dealing with cleansing, you have one sure fire way that will ensure a holistic, natural way of flushing your system and boosting health, and it is so very simple-Water.
Water is the best way to cleanse your body, and if you want your body cleansed efficiently, then you should drink at least eight 6oz glasses of ionized water a day. Ionized water, as opposed to regular tap or bottled water has antioxidants, which is a great health source for your body. It also helps oxygen reach your cellular system faster, this gives your body more energy and helps your bodily functions work more efficiently and faster; this also aids in the flushing process. If you needed an immediate detoxification flush, you can also add several table spoons of salt to some warmed ionized water and this becomes a make-shift enema. As long as you drink a tall glass of salted ionized water and skip a meal directly before hand, your body will flush a lot of its toxins out. These are just a few easy health tips that you can use to avoid colon cancer and other ailments and diseases.
