Does Your Colon Feed or Poison You??

There was a newspaper article around Christmas and they had asked people to write about the lamest gift they had given or received. The one that caught my eye was the person that gave a colon cleanser as a white elephant gift. They said that they never admitted that it was them that gave it and wondered what the person that received it thought. I would say for a white elephant gift that was probably the best one at the party.

Dr. Christopher has written books and newsletters about the colon, one article title is; "Does Your Colon Feed or Poison You?? " He talks about the majority of illness being caused by a congested (constipated) colon. Constipation can also cause shoulder pain, sciatic pain as well as pain shooting down the legs.

Dr. Christopher goes on to say:
“Most people have pounds of old dried fecal matter that is stored in the colon which is toxifying the system and keeping the food from being assimilated. Because of this putrefied condition, most people engorge themselves with many times more than the actual body requirements, wearing out their bodies in trying to get sufficient nutrition and are still always hungry and eating. After the bowel is cleaned, the food is readily assimilated, and a person can sustain himself on about one-third the quantity of his current food consumption at some four or five times increase in more power, energy, vitality, and life. Herein the clean body is able to normally assimilate the simple food values through the cell structures in the colon, instead of it being trapped in a maze of wastage, and inhibited by the hard fecal casing on the intestinal walls, wherein the largest part of the nutritional substance becomes pushed on and eliminated before it is digested. When the body is completely clean, these aids will no longer be necessary--then your food will be your medicine and your medicine will be your food. As long as you stay on the program properly, the lower bowel formula should be used only when needed, after the bowel is once cleaned.”

The Lower Bowel Formula is one of my favorite formulas, it is gentle yet effective.

    Dear Readers:

    Can we consider a very ancient and true statement of knowledge dating back many thousands of year with regards to greater human health and healing.

    The following statement which is versed in modern English is:

    "For every dis-ease, dis-order, or aspect of dis-harmony, illness, or sickness; God (or if you prefer Cosmic Consciousness or Divine Intelligence) has created a 'plant' that will aid and assist in the cure."

    Yes, this is so very true for all kingdoms of life here on planet earth. And the basic law and/or principles dates back thousands of year when the most ancient of the healing arts of the far east came to know of the powerful healing qualities of members of the plant kingdom. What we often call herbs and spices as well as good quality vegetables, grains, and legumes, which human beings can assimilate, that will greatly aid in the balance and repair of the human constitution.

    Everything on this plant consist of vibratory principles and each has its own vibratory rate or frequency. So all of the many herbs, spices and plants that grow offer some individual qualities to natural healing. Even the so called lowly "weed" is not really of no or little use but often times if the healing characteristic of the individual plant is know the vibratory rate of the plant greatly aids in the healing process for a human being.

    We are fortunate indeed to have individuals of the past like Dr. John R. Christopher who came to fully know the healing powers of plants and to offer the many formulas and single herbs that truly lead to healing with no harmful side effects.

    We as students in life will do very well to learn of the selected members of the plant kingdom that will give us better health and wellness for a more full and beneficial life full of abundance of energy, zest and vitality to move through each day.

    To have knowledge of the healing powers of plants is but only one aspect of full healing. For we do need to as well know what qualities of foods we should eat and how they effect our human biological terrain (the latter terminologies is use to describe the human body; which in reality is far more than just the physical object that we see and touch each day). As we come to discover how eating various foods effect our biological terrain we learn more of how to correct errors of the past so to create a perfect balanced digestive system. Perhaps one of the most important organs in the human biological terrain is the colon. And good colon health - which a lot of people do not fully understand is so very essential for good health. So it was so very fitting to read the Herbs First news letter at the end of the year 2009 to help one to understand a very good way to start out the new year.

    To know as well the human constitution is a vast and extremely complex network of systems that work in harmony with each other. When you consider the adult human body has over one trillion individual cells of which each has a very specific function depending upon its location in the physical system. And for certain our finite minds cannot be in control of all of those cells all of the time. Those cells will - however - function well if they are supplied with the right and correct vital elements so needed for their function.

    Hello Thomas - in the subject line so to alert me to a message from this blog reader.

    Can we with the grace of time developed a network of like minded readers and seekers of true healing in that we can enlarge the scope and field of natural healing methods that have worked so very well for thousands of years.

    Many Blessings,
