It has been said that all disease begins in the colon, but Body Ecology founder Donna Gates takes a more positive and more comprehensive outlook, saying, “All health begins in the digestive tract and creating a healthy colon is a great first step to wellness.”

Think of your colon as the waste management station of your body. All of the cells and tissues in your body – and your major organ of detoxification, the liver – rely upon a well-functioning colon so they can cleanse your body of toxins.

Yes, waste products that are left over from digestion of the food you eat is sent to your colon to be safely excreted from your body, but also important nutrients and hormones are still being absorbed or manufactured there as well.

When everything is working in an efficient manner, your colon would be not only handle the waste, it would alsoabsorb leftover nutrients (like water, electrolytes, and vitamins) from digested foods and send them back for your body to use.

In essence, your colon is deciding what to get rid of and what important nutrients to redistribute.

The toxins won’t be removed of the body if the colon doesn’t work properly and all the waste will get stuck on the colon wall.

For food to go completely through the body we need at least 24 hours. There are no nutrients in processed and unhealthy foods, like fibers or enzymes useful ingredients so these foods need more time to be processed in the body, maybe even 70 hours. This means feeling heavy with maybe 20 lbs waste material.

The most common waste buildup is known as constipation, this means painful bowel movements or irregular waste eliminating.
