The human body is an open system, where all manner of microbes can flow in and out of – making it is virtually impossible to keep them out completely. For this reason, one of the best ways to prevent colds and flu from developing is to maintain a robust immune system. This can be done by ensuring that the internal environment within the body is both clean and inhospitable to the various infectious pathogens that may be lurking, thereby preventing them from taking root and proliferating. In terms of human physiology, the digestive system is actually considered to be outside of the body. The entire gut is a barrier between the body’s interior and the outside world, keeping out that which does not belong. Luckily, 80% of the immune system is actually located within the digestive system.

All parts of the human body work synergistically. The entire human organism benefits when organs and glands function correctly. If one part of the organism experiences dis-ease – the whole body suffers. This is especially true for the digestive system. The gut is responsible to break down, process, and assimilate nutrition for the body, as well as to then eliminate the waste products from this digestive process. The human digestive system does this every day – making the health of the gut so vital. If the gut is malfunctioning or sluggish, vital nourishment cannot feed cells within the body needed to function correctly. Waste can accumulate, leading to autointoxication and contributing to the proliferation of dangerous pathogens. All of which can lead to weakness for the many systems in the human body, resulting in ill health.

Bloating is when your belly feels swollen after eating. It is usually often caused by excess gas production or disturbances in the movement of the muscles of the digestive system. You may wonder why you are always bloated despite eating healthy. While we list some potential solutions to bloating below, if your stomach bloating is severe and persistent, then it's best to see a doctor as severe bloating can be a sign of inflammatory bowel disease. Many people are sensitive to some foods and unfortunately they are probably the most enjoyable. The most common food allergies are associated with dairy, soy, eggs, gluten, nuts, corn, citrus fruit, yeast and vegetables dark in colour. There are multiple ways to determine what foods are irritating to your body. Evidence proves that Bio Meridian sensitivity testing and elimination diets are among the top effective methods.
Food combining is a centuries-old way of eating for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients. Food combining centers around the idea that meals should be kept simple in order to be digested properly by enzymatic action – the natural way our body works to break down food and absorb nutrients. As different foods require their own unique enzymes, too many different foods in one meal confuse the body and it is not able to produce all of the necessary enzymes simultaneously. This leads to a whole host of digestive issues, starting with belching, heartburn, intestinal gas, abdominal pain and swelling. Following Food Combining can transform your digestion.
In his book Colon Health, Dr. Norman W. Walker states flat out that everyone should have as many colonics as it takes to clean the entire length of the colon. The purpose is to avoid premature aging, disease, as well as unwanted surgical procedures that can permanently alter your life. The human colon is on average 5 feet in length, and 3 inches in diameter (or 1.5 meters long with an approximate average diameter of 7cm). This large surface area, coupled with constipation and hardened impactions along the bowel wall, make it impossible for the water that is introduced into the colon during a single colonic treatment, to reach the entirety of the large bowel. Only one part of the colon can be cleaned at a time, and those areas closest to the anus and rectum must be cleared of obstruction first, before deeper areas of the colon can be accessed.
