It has been said that your health is all about what you put into your body and what comes out of your body! Sadly, this simple truth seems to be overlooked by traditional medicine and the processed food industry.
A quick comparison in nature confirms that the digestive system of a mammal is made to eliminate waste every time food is consumed. Need a reference? Newborn babies will eliminate every time they nurse; puppies always need to go right after they eat; horses will pass manure within a few minutes of consuming hay, etc. This is pretty common knowledge for anyone who has ever had a child or a pet.
So what happens? Why does this natural tendency that is so healthy for us change? There are many things in our modern world that effect our colon habits, but the two most common reasons are that we train our bodies to hold waste and we consume unnatural foods and chemicals that disrupt the normal elimination process.
