The Secrets to Health Begin with the Colon

Okay, I know, I know. I missed today's post. Today was the second day of my job, so that's kinda why.

But to make it up to you, I really want to dive into the topic of colon health.

I've been reading about it for quite a good while, so my opinions are all made up and good to go.

Well, all of you should know that the colon is part of the digestive tract, right? I hope you do cause I didn't. But that's beside the point.

But let me ask you a few questions first. They may be kind of personal, but they're important, and you only have to answer them in your head.

Do you have bowel movements at least 3 times a day? Do you often have constipation? Do you take in the daily requirements for fiber? Is your diet filled with meat? Do you drink lots of (purified/filtered/distilled) water throughout the day?

Well if you answer, no, yes, no, yes, no, then let me tell you, your colon is probably bad.

Let me explain it for you. We eat to live, and what our bodies cannot benefit from the food, we get rid of (especially toxins). If you aren't getting rid of it, it's just rotting inside your colon, making your colon a toxic wasteland. And no don't take this the wrong way, but meat doesn't digest well at all in our bodies. I'm not trying to be one of those nagging vegetarian that tries to tell you how to eat and live, but I'm just warning you that the American diet sucks. We consume far too much meat and processed foods. Both are toxic filled, and then that affects our colons.

When you eat a diet rich in fiber from fruits especially, it makes it easier on your digestive tract to eliminate that waste, making your stools softer. But if you don't drink enough water, it cannot move through your digestive system and be eliminated. A happy, healthy colon eliminates waste at least 3 times a day. Isn't it better to get all the waste/toxins out sooner rather than later?

Now what are the symptoms of a toxic colon?
Well here are some of them:
Acne
Constipation
IBS
Fatigue
Allergies
Asthma
And many many more...


The one that hit me was acne. It makes so much sense to me. If acne didn't occur when we were first born, then why are taking meds for this? Obviously something is wrong inside our body to make this happen, so why cover things up with medication? This goes for inflammation and pain, and basically all our health problems in today's world. If it wasn't there to begin with, what makes us believe medication can get rid of the problem?

All of these symptoms are our bodies way of alerting us that something is wrong inside us, and when we don't fix what's wrong inside of us, our bodies get worse.

Take this one into consideration: Why do you think old people get so weak and ill fast?
Well, there's one thing we need to look into: their eating habits. If you don't fuel your body with the proper foods, our bodies cannot function properly. When we begin to eat loads of toxic filled processed foods and fast food, how can our bodies survive on that? We are doing so much damage to ourselves that it is ridiculous. But those that eat fruits and vegetables, and lots of raw things, are fueling their body. If you're fueling your body, why would it begin to deteriorate on the inside? Why would cancer form if we are feeding ourselves properly. Well, that's because in this day and age, we live on the worst diet possible.

In fact, I read in my history book in school, back to the Vietnam War, and take this into consideration: Agent Orange caused cancer throughout Vietnam and veterans. And do you know what Agent Orange is? If you guessed a toxin, then you are absolutely correct! And if toxins create cancer, and if we feed our bodies with processed/fast foods, what do you think will happen? Remember, toxins create cancer.

And if our colons are toxic, it'll spread to the areas around it, like the cervix and the prostate. And think about, those are very common cancers.

And if radiation causes cancer, why do we treat cancer patients with it? You're just killing off all the good cells in order to rid of the bad ones. And if you ate properly in the first place and got rid off all those toxins, cancer would be impossible.

So what's the key to good colon health? Lots of purified water and lots of fiber. No, really! That's it.

If you can tolerate it, it would be most beneficial to go on a green smoothie fast for a few days. I would seriously love to do one, but I can't afford to lose weight because I'm so skinny. But there are some side effects to detoxing because toxins will be released into your system and make you feel like crap until they are eventually all gone.

Man, that was a lot of writing! I'm not sure if I missed anything, but I don't think I did.
Any questions, thoughts, or comments?

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
