Diet Affects Diversity Of Microbes In Human Gut, And In Turn, Colon Cancer Risk (April 2, 2009) — A typical Western diet, rich in meat and fats and low in complex carbohydrates, is a recipe for colon cancer, scientists say. Researchers have described an expanding body of evidence to show that the composition of the diet directly influences the diversity of the microbes in the gut, providing the link between diet, colonic disease and colon cancer. … > full story

(November 28, 2008) — Family life gets crazy around the holidays, and kids can get out of their bathroom routine. A new study finds childhood constipation is much more than an inconvenience – it’s a common, sometimes serious medical problem that costs nearly billion each year to treat. That’s equal to major chronic illnesses like asthma and ADHD. We have some important tips for parents to help treat or prevent the problem before it gets serious. … > full story

OUR COMMENTS

Motto:  “If it goes in, it must come out!”  

  • If you eat one full meal a day, you should have one full bowel movement a day.  (2 meals, 2 movements, etc.)  
  • Ideally, BMs should float, clean easily (not liquid, sticky or hard), and not smell too odorous.   
  • If you don’t have the ‘ideal BM’, you can increase fiber, herbs and alkalinity.

 

Fiber

  • helps digestion 
  • eases constipation,
  • cleanses bowel, blood and arteries.   

 

Herb Lax

  • strengthens intestinal muscle action
  • cleanses intestine and blood
  • increases nutrient absorption
  •  

    Alfalfa   

    • increases alkalinity of cellular system
    • enzymes help digest food in the stomach before it enters the intestine
    • natural body deodorizer

      • Tea consumption had its origin in China more than 4,000 years ago[5]. Green tea has been used as traditional medicine in areas such as China, Japan, India and Thailand to help everything from controlling bleeding and helping heal wounds to regulating body temperature, blood sugar and promoting digestion.
      • The Kissa Yojoki (Book of Tea), written by Zen priest Eisai in 1191, describes how drinking green tea can have a positive effect on the five vital organs, especially the heart. The book discusses tea’s medicinal qualities, which include easing the effects of alcohol, acting as a stimulant, curing blotchiness, quenching thirst, eliminating indigestion, curing beriberi disease, preventing fatigue, and improving urinary and brain function.

    IBS to Colitis to Cancer?

    How can IBS lead to Cancer?

     

    CAUSE and PROGRESSION

    • IBS develops when people eat less than 25-50 grams of fiber a day or have a Candida Infection.
      • IBS is chronic constipation, alternating constipation and diarrhea, spastic colon, abdominal cramps and tenderness, mucas, abdominal bloating and gas, or incomplete evacuation.
    • IBS can lead to Ulcerations & Inflammation.  (Source: Dr. Mark Bowles)

    •  
      • A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colon’s muscular wall to its outer surface. 
      • Diverticulitis occurs when undigested foods become hard and dry, causing the colon walls to strain and break. 
      • A local infection in the colon develops, causing subsequent pain in the lower left corner of the abdomen, sometimes accompanied by fever and chills.
      • Many with Diverticulosis have been given the bad advice of severely restricting fiber.  Lack of fiber worsens the condition.
      • Fatty foods, Candida Infection and stress aggravate the condition.
    • Diverticulosis increases the risk of Colon Cancer as damaged cells replicate.  colon-cancer

    STATS

    • By age 60, 1/2 of North Americans have diverticulosis. 
    • By age 80, 2/3 have it.  
    • Digestive disorders have been prevented and reversed with immediate and consistant action.

    Causes? 

    A variety of factors can cause the stomach to cramp or intestine to get ‘clogged’ or coated, leading to mal-absorption or allergy issues.

    • insufficient fiber: most Americans eat 5-7 grams of fiber (recommended 25-50 grams)
    • Candida overgrowth causing ‘leaky gut’ (microscopic holes in intestinal walls allowing foods to enter bloodstream and causing histamine overproduction & antibody formation)
    • insufficient pure water intake
    • too much refined sugar
    • too many processed foods stripped of live enzymes
    • inefficient enzyme production or hydrochloric acid in the stomach
    • food allergy / sensitivity causing undigested food to coat the intestine
