statistics show that more North Americans are hospitalized due to diseases of
the intestinal tract than for any other group of disorders.
Fact: Colorectal Cancer is the second leading cancer killer in
The following is an estimate of costs and demonstrates
how these diseases present a significant public health problem, substantially
adding to our overall health care costs:
million per year
billion per year
100,000 people get colostomies yearly in the U.S.A.
100,000+ Americans die annually due to this disease
Some of the most common diseases and disorders directly
related to the colon include: constipation, Appendicitis, Diverticular Disease,

Most American adults are not engaged in daily rigorous
activity, yet feel mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the
workday. This fatigue we feel could be for a variety of reasons, i.e., malabsorption,
poor nutrient quality, poor elimination habits and, as a result, toxins are
trapped in the body.
When the colon becomes
congested with stagnant waste, poisons back up in the body and pollute the
inner environment. This is called
autointoxication, which literally means, “self poisoning.” All of the body’s
tissues are affected by this.
Autointoxication also can be a causative factor for
numerous serious diseases and is considered by many to be the underlying reason
for disease. In fact, the colon is
the largest perpetrator of disease of any organ in the body and is said to be
the initiator of 80 percent of all critical illness.
The colon is the first stop for nutrient distribution and
also the last stop for waste expulsion from the
body. The colon is a critical juncture in our digestive
system. When the colon is healthy and functioning normally, we experience
better health and better overall well being.
