Weight Loss Starts in the Colon
material found in the foods that you have eaten over the years?
Many processed foods, such as milk, enriched and bleached flour
and sugar, as well as packaged foods filled with preservatives
contain toxic elements that slowly build up in the intestine.
This build up causes a hardened impacted glue to form within the
intestines, decreasing the body's ability to absorb nutrients,
lowering “metabolism” rates and causing unhealthy weight gain.
When the body cannot absorb the nutrients in food properly,
energy levels are lowered and the risk of serious illness is
Certain detoxification supplements target the toxic build up in
the intestine, breaking it up and flushing it from the colon.
Once these detoxification processes have been completed you will
have more energy, an increased feeling of over all wellness and
a lower risk of potential illness. I will tell you how you
where to go to get started on cleansing your colon soon, but
first, let’s look at some more information about how a congested
colon is impacting our societies health!
Findings published in the January 15, 2002 Journal of the
American Medical Association state that at least 47 million
American adults - or more than one in five - have “metabolic
syndrome”, a disorder that often includes a beer belly, high
blood pressure, poor cholesterol readings and high blood sugar,
according to a disturbing new study. A “beer belly” is not just
from drinking beer, it is usually formed from undigested food in
the lower intestines!
Metabolic syndrome has been recognized since at least the 1920s,
though it has been called different things over the years.
Though experts say the syndrome may be caused by a combination
of genes and lifestyle factors, lifestyle - including overeating
and a lack of exercise - are probably the most important
factors, said Dr. Earl Ford of the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, who led the study.
''When you consider that 50 to 60 million Americans have
hypertension, about 60 percent of adults qualify as overweight
or obese, and there are 16 million Americans with diabetes, I knew
the number would be fairly large,'' Ford said. Metabolic syndrome
greatly increases the risk of diabetes, heart attacks and stroke.
The CDC reached its estimate by using the first-ever specific
definition of the syndrome developed by the National Institutes
of Health. The definition could help doctors identify and treat
patients by getting them to lose weight, eat better and get more
According to the NIH definition, metabolic disorder is present
when a patient has any three or more symptoms: a waist measuring
at least 40 inches for men and 35 inches for women; levels of
triglycerides - fats that circulate in the blood - of at least
150 milligrams per deciliter; HDL levels of less than 40 mgs in
men and less than 50 mgs in women; blood pressure of at least
135/80; and blood sugar of at least 110 mgs.
Dr. Margo Denke, a professor of medicine at University of Texas
Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, said ''This is one
syndrome that is exquisitely lifestyle-sensitive - it's an area
where we can get people to pay attention and if they do pay
attention, they’re big rewards,'' she said.
Obviously big rewards include more than just losing weight here.
A long and high quality life is the biggest reward you can
receive when you apply the TRUE information we bring to you
