Research increasingly shows that colon health promotes overall well-being
This month the Wall Street Journal reported that a growing body of research points to the world of the gut — its bacterial populations and its neurotransmitter levels — as a key factor in health and well-being. Consider these excerpts from the article:"A bacterium unique to the intestines of those with autism called Sutterella was discovered… which suggests Sutterella may be important in understanding the link between autism and digestive ailments."
"About 95% of the serotonin in the body is made in the gut, not in the brain… which helps the digestive tract push food through the gut… Serotonin is necessary for the repair of cells in the liver and lungs, and plays a role in normal heart development and bone-mass accumulation."

Science points to what many people’s personal and clinical experiences are: taking special care of your gut promotes overall well-being.

When a colon is in a state of dysbiosis — the condition of having microbial imbalances or parasites — regular colon cleansing may reduce the number of unhealthy microbes and increase the volume of healthy bacteria. As gastrointestinal health panels show, dysbiosis is all too common. Blastocystis hominis, Cryptosporidium, and Clostridium difficile are common in people who are ill. Clinically, after regular colon cleansing, people recover their health, reducing unhealthy microbial levels.
