The Ideal Natural Colon Cleanse,
the Hawaiian way

Who needs internal natural colon cleansing?

Do you experience any of these symptoms? This list identifies some of the symptoms of auto intoxication. It is safe to say that most people, and especially those of us living in an urban community, would greatly benefit from periodic internal cleansing. Of course, if you have severe symptoms or a serious disorder, please seek the attention of a health care professional.

  • constipation, diarrhea, sluggish elimination, irregular bowel movements
  • frequent headaches with no apparent cause
  • skin problems, rashes, boils, pimples, and acne
  • frequent congestion, colds, and virus
  • general aches and pains that migrate from one place to another
  • low back pain
  • lowered resistance to infections
  • low energy, loss of vitality for no apparent cause
  • needing to sleep longer at night
  • flatulence and frequent stomach disorders
  • bad breath and foul smelling stool
  • allergies, intolerance to certain foods, especially fatty ones
  • premenstrual syndrome, breast soreness, vaginal infections

One serious health problem which periodic natural colon cleansing can help prevent is colon cancer. According to the American Medical Association, colorectal cancer is the third most common form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the western world. While early diagnosis often gives excellent chance of cure, symptoms of colorectal cancer frequently only are noticed rather late in the disease. Following a regular colon cleansing program can reduce or eliminate the causes of colorectal cancer.

Why cleanse our colons?

We all know that sanitation is absolutely essential for controlling the spread of infectious diseases. Daily bathing not only rids the body of dirt and odors, but also helps destroy bacteria.

Natural colon cleansing works in much the same way. The body uses the colon, skin, lungs, kidneys and other organs to eliminate toxins as quickly as possible. But if these systems are clogged, sluggish or overburdened, the toxins back up into the body and can cause headaches, loss of energy, fatigue, and other aches and pains. Years of improper elimination can lead to the most severe health problems.

Natural colon cleaning helps us keep our channels of elimination open and cleansed so they can perform their vital functions. The preventative practice of natural colon cleansing has existed for thousands of years, and has played a central role in the lives of millions of people worldwide. From an indigenous Hawaiian point of view, cleansing the body of built up toxins promotes health and prevents degenerative disease.

Despite the enormous sums of money spent in the United States on health care each year, we are still one of the sickest nations in the world today. Why? Perhaps because now more than ever we are constantly exposed to chemicals, pesticides, food additives, heavy metal. Also, and perhaps more importantly, the nutritional value of our diet has decreased dramatically.

These "modern" changes cause many problems such as fatigue, weak immune system, hormonal dysfunction, infertility, skin problems, psychological disorders and cancer. The most powerful tool available to prevent, alleviate, and reverse many of these acute and chronic conditions is a solid, natural colon cleansing and detoxification therapy program.

Once the body is allowed to catch up via a natural colon cleanse, then specific dietary and life style changes should be followed when indicated.

natural colon cleansing program

The foundation for natural healing is thoroughly cleansing our organs of elimination and our bloodstream. This must be done before we can expect anything else to work! Drawing on my 30 plus years of clinical experience in nutritional counseling and internal cleansing, I have identified the following essential guidelines for an effective natural colon cleansing program.

  • It must clear toxic waste and mucus out of the body.
  • It must give clients foods and herbs that are of the highest vibratory quality in order to rebuild the vital parts of the body.
  • It must provide herbal formulas and corrective aids to facilitate the healing and regeneration of the whole body.
  • It must be easy to use and convenient.
  • The amount and variety of herbs for colon cleanse must work together to promote cleansing, rebuild function, and avoid unnecessary cleansing reactions.

Herbs have profound healing abilities without the evil side effects of modern synthesized drugs. Over half our modern drugs were originally derived from herbs. Herbs were the first medicines, and still provide the ingredients for primary health care in much of the world.
