A Clean Digestive System can Lead to Better Overall Health

Nearly every health concern from cancer to ulcers can be traced back to
your digestive system. Whether it’s the obvious problems that come with
indigestion such as bloating, heartburn, gas, irregularity or more serious
immune issues, it all comes down to what’s going on inside your gut. Not
only is your digestive system responsible for breaking down foods and
sending critical nutrients into your bloodstream, it’s also where most
of your immune system resides.

Everything entering your mouth or nose can reach the GI tract. So
everything we breathe, eat, or drink creates a potential invasion into
our internal environment. If pathogens survive the trip through the
acids and enzymes of the upper part of the GI tract, they find the
perfect permanent home in the colon. As a result, the colon is often the
seat of many chronic problems. When you take into account many of our
society’s current habits, it’s easy to understand how pathogenic
bacteria can easily gain a strong foothold right there in your gut.

For instance, we now consume less fiber and more refined carbohydrates
than at any other time in history. Both of these habits slow bowel
transit time (allowing toxins to sit in your body for far too long) and
help provide fuel for harmful bacteria strains. On top of that,
excessive use of antibiotics and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anit-inflammatory
drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen) has become widespread,
which throw off the delicate balance of good, necessary bacteria in
your gut.

It’s no wonder that most people in this country complain about no energy
and are constantly sick. Their imbalanced colons support colonies of
pathogenic bacteria, which are constantly spewing toxins into their
system. Their immune system is in a constant fight just trying to keep
things under control.

Now for the good news, It’s not that hard to turn all this around
enjoy comfortable digestion, and get your immune system armed and ready
for any invasion. It all comes down to balancing the bacterial flora in
your gut. There is no doubt that proper digestion, absorption,
elimination, and immune response; all dependent on bacterial flora; must
be maintained if you want to remain healthy. Every day, groups of
individuals are exposed to the same pathogens; but not everyone gets
sick. A strong immune system response determines your ability to fend
off premature aging, sickness, and disease. And a strong immune system
requires the proper flora in the bowels.

And that’s surprisingly simple to achieve. By eating certain types of
foods, you can feed your body the healthy, good bacteria it needs to
keep your immune system strong and your digestive system running well.
You can also do a Natural Colon Cleanse to clear out the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, intestines and colon.

It’s baffling why conventional medicine hasn’t been able to grasp
or accept this concept. Obviously, the pharmaceutical companies stand to
make a lot more money selling antibiotics and other medications than
recommending a daily dose of fruit or vegetables.

With impending digestive threats all around you, you should take every precautionary measure to boost your immune system and keep your GI tract clear in order to ensure optimal health.
