I came across a product recently, an all-natural colon cleanser, that sounded too good to be true. Great ingredient list, no special daily routine required, none of the no-no ingredients that you find in some products, an anti-parasitic as part of the program, and a free 30-day supply of probiotics as a bonus, at least for now. Other benefits: free shipping, they don’t charge your card until 30 days after they ship, and a full 60-day money back guarantee … PLUS they’ll cover the cost of shipping it back. How could you go wrong?
Because I just recently went through a full cleanse and detox, I didn’t think I would be a good test of its effectiveness, so am following a few other users and will report back … here on my blog … and add this product to my site’s product list if it’s as good as it sounds. Looks like a winner so far!

I was researching the possible link between colon cleansing and cancer prevention when I found this fascinating information on a supplement that has both the conventional and alternative communities abuzz, at least in some places. [The Canadian Government and the Canadian Cancer Society are spreading the word, but our FDA is more intent on forcing conventional doctors to toe the line on conventional treatments than disseminating the truth about natural (low profit) cures.]
What’s the news? A new study shows that vitamin D lowers the risk of all cancers in women by a remarkable 77 percent! Men enjoy the benefits too. In fact, just 1,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D per day can reduce the risk of various cancers by as much as 60 percent in the general population.
What else does it do? In addition to cancer prevention, vitamin D reduces inflammation throughout the body. It enhances your mood, boosts the immune system, prevents bone and muscle weakness, lowers risk of heart disease, prevents diabetes, fights arthritis, as well as other life-altering maladies.
How much vitamin D do you need? Numbers are all over the place, but the conventional ones are too low, mostly in the low hundreds. General wisdom says 1,000 IU per day when acquired through food and supplements. (Because of how it’s absorbed, there are some issues of too much vitamin D possibly leading to the risk of toxicity when it comes from food and supplements.) But 1,000 IU must not be easy to reach because 85 percent of patients tested were found to be vitamin D deficient.
So how do you get the vitamin D you need? While food and supplements are one way, the easiest and best way is through simple exposure to the sun. Our bodies can safely and naturally synthesize more than 20,000 IU of vitamin D in just 20 minutes of sun exposure — without sun-block — without risk of toxicity because we have a natural check-and-balance mechanism that shuts off the synthesis when we get enough.
But how do we do this safely, without risking skin cancer? By going out twice a day for no more than 15 minutes at a time, early in the morning and again late in the afternoon. Details: people with more pigment in their skin may require a little more time, but never to the point of burning. Any pinkness indicates the start of burning, which is no good. And geography plays a role too: South Florida’s sun is far stronger than that in Maine. So monitor how your skin feels, and keep your exposure on the safe side of pink.
How do you know you have enough? The best gauge is to monitor your vitamin D levels with periodic blood tests.
As I say again and again on my websites and blogs, take personal responsibility for your own health, especially when it comes to actions that are preventive.

When I was doing my research for my website on colon cleansing, I read lots of articles about how bad the American Diet is, and how it continues to get worse. And that’s despite all the talk about people trying to “eat healthy.” All the fast food, processed food, junk food, you know the drill. But what’s scary is to see the statistics. I know we’re a big country … but just picture this:
Retail sales of pizza through all sorts of channels (ready-to-eat, packaged, etc.) totalled $37 billion in 2006. In 1999 (the last year I could find figures), the ACNielsen company said that about 2.3 BILLION pizzas were sold at retail. Each pizza contains around 8 ounces of cheese, so that’s 1.15 BILLION POUNDS OF CHEESE! Just on pizzas.
[I feel a little better because that same year 1.17 billion pounds of broccoli were eaten in the U.S., and per capital consumption was actually rising.]
Soft drink consumption in the U.S. went from 22.7 gallons per person in the year 1970, to 34.1 gallons in 1980 and 47.4 gallons in 1990. Who knows how much higher it’s gone in the 17 years since then …
But the most mind-boggling statistic, at least to me? The fact that 500 million Twinkies are sold each year.
And we wonder why our colons need cleaning?

The whole time I was researching colon cleansing in order to build my www.clean-colon-advantage.com website, nowhere did I find real work done on any link that might exist between having an ‘unclean’ colon and colon cancer. But my logic says that a link might possibly exist. Let me explain my thought process. If it is true that (1) cancer growth is encouraged by an inflammatory environment, and (2) the mucoid plaque that accumulates along an unclean colon is generated by eating foods that cause inflammation, then (3) maybe there is something to the idea. I’m no doctor, and am certainly not about to turn the world on its head with some major discovery. But as an intelligent human being who researches whatever she can … for better understanding … I will invest the time to see if I can find any corroborating information. If I do, I will certainly share it on this blog. Until then, “keep it clean.”

I saw some scary statistics today that confirm how out-of-control the U.S. medical industry is. They referred to “gastrointestinal disorder treatments:”
U.S. Market for Gastrointestinal Pharmaceuticals
The total U.S. market for gastrointestinal disorder treatments was estimated at $16.1 billion for 2004. Rising at an AAGR (average annual growth rate) of 7.3%, the market is expected to reach $22.8 billion in 2009. The prescription market accounted for the largest percentage of sales with approximately 85%, or $13.7 billion in sales in for 2004. This segment is also rising the fastest, with an AAGR of 7.7%. The OTC market accounts for the remaining 15%, or $2.4 billion. Rising at AAGR of 14%, it will represent only 13% of the market in 2009. At approximately 80%, the largest area of market participation for leading competitors is within the prescription drug segment.
A market growing from $16.1 billion in 2004 to 22.8 billion in 2009? And prescription drugs = 80 percent of that market?
Sounds to me like doctors are writing scripts to treat symptoms and not root causes. This is the main reason why I continue to look for ways to stay healthy outside of the traditional medical environment. I can only encourage you to do the same …

My brand-new website, www.clean-colon-advantage.com , was developed because I found very little straightforward information when I went to do online research on colon cleansing, as a potential first-timer. There were lots of sites hawking their own products. Lots of sites filled with hype, rating products as a pretext for generating commissions.
But no one really looked at colon cleansing, A to Z, including what to expect, how it felt, and all the other things a first-timer would want to know. So, after I went through a full cleansing (along with several friends who followed my lead), I set about to develop my site. As I get more information, I’ll add to this blog. Meanwhile, check out the site … and happy cleansing!
