Far too many people take their health for granted.

They believe that since they don't have any health conditions or don't experience any symptoms, that they are healthy. It's usually the case, however, that symptoms don't arise until you have a serious condition.By this time, reversal is difficult or impossible.

If you could see into the inner workings of your system, I'm sure you would be more inclined to take better care of it.

The "true" condition of your health is due in large part to the condition of your colon or large intestines, as it is more commonly known.

The colon extends about 1.5 meters in the digestive tract. In the digestive process, the colon is responsible for waste and water management, and nutrient absorption. As long as the colon is healthy it can easily perform its duties.

However, when there is a problem with your colon your entire system suffers. The most common setback to the colon is sluggishness.

A sluggish colon slows down your digestive system and weakens your system's ability to maintain proper functioning. Fatigue, skin eruptions, constipation, and abdominal discomfort are symptoms of a sluggish colon.

The following can contribute to an unhealthy colon:

  • A low fiber diet
  • Insufficient water intake
  • Not any old liquid vitamin will do.
  • Lack of nutrients
  • Little or no physical activity
  • Stress

It doesn't happen all at once, but the above-mentioned activities can eventually render the colon unable to rid the body of dangerous toxins. Allowing toxins to buildup in your colon is a sure-fire way to develop colon cancer. Can you reverse the effects of a sluggish colon? Sure you can. Simply follow a high fiber diet, drink plenty of water, get daily physical activity, lower your stress level, and consume more fruits and vegetables. By doing these activities on a regular basis you should be able to improve the functioning of your colon and in effect improve your level of health.

However, if your colon is severely backed up with toxins, a colon cleanse is probably your best approach to good health. A colon cleanse can help you to maintain general health, keep the body free of toxins, and reduce your risk of developing colon cancer.
