DID YOU KNOW? “The average person has 3-6 kilos of impacted fecal matter sitting in their colon making them look and feel bloated and rundown.”
Our environment has become so polluted with toxins through the air we breathe, the water we drink, much of the food we eat, that our natural self-cleansing process is no longer sufficient to fully eliminate them from our body.
Think of the colon as the sewage system of the body. If toxins in the colon are allowed to build up they will enter into the bloodstream and eventually overload the organs of the body, affecting our immune system and may lead to diseases and accelerated ageing.
Almost 89% of the population suffers from weight and health problems on a daily basis as toxins create chemical Imbalance in our body and affect our metabolic rate and hormones causing chronic weight problems, digestive issues and even psychological conditions. We hear of so many people complaining that despite eating right and exercising they can't loose weight, the very reason might be due to toxic overload in the body. Even newborn babies do not escape forom toxicity. US researchers found in tests of the umbilical cords in 10 newborns. In 2004 an average of 200 toxic chemicals such as pesticides, food additives, varnish and paint byproducts.
It is important to help our bodies get rid of unwanted, harmful substances through periodic detoxification.
