12 REASONS WHY A COLON CLEANSE MAY BE NEEDED:
1. Toxic Air Pollution – we inhale with each breath and absorb into our skin industrial pollutants hanging in the air.
2. Toxic Water Pollution – many medications, hormone therapies, etc. are being released through urination into our water supply.
3. Toxic Food Pollution – we consume genetically modified foods which our bodies cannot recognize and properly digest. Chemical Fertilizers are decreasing the nutritional content of our food. Pesticides are used in the growing of our food, not to mention the hormones given to the animals used for meat. These affect everyone ingesting that type of animal protein.
4. Life styles - can create weakness in the digestion which leads us spiraling into the depths of symptoms, disease and degeneration.
5. Food combining - of concentrated proteins with concentrated carbohydrates creates undigested foods that feed pathogen activity in the colon.
6. Autointoxication – Symptoms associated with altered bowel function have far-reaching effects throughout the body (in other tissues and organs…!) such as inflammation, chronic degenerative diseases, etc.
7. A congested liver - is unable to convert food into a form that can be used by the body. Diet, the use of drugs, and already compromised organs of elimination (colon, kidneys, lungs, or skin) create problems with the liver.
8. Endocrine cascade - from the pancreatic response to overconsumption of refined sugar.
9. Pathogens feeding - and living on toxic waste in colon – Parasites, bad bacteria
10. Lack of Enzymes - Molecular Nutrition Depends on Biologic Digestion – Digestion is the process through which the foods we consume pass through our bodies and are directed toward providing energy, metabolic tools, and building materials for the life and health maintenance of the cells.
11. Heavy Metals and Mercury - issues from dental mercury fillings releasing into digestion, lodging in the colon and interferes with cell communication
12. Proper digestion - is important for a healthy body, mind and spirit. If digestion is weak, then even good food will be converted into low-grade nutrition and an inferior quality of health. Health starts on the plate. Digestion starts in the mouth.

Your body is the house in which you live. By analogy, it is just like the building in which you make your home. Your home needs, at the very least, periodic attention. The roof may leak, the plumbing may get out of order and clog up, termites may drill through the floors and the walls, and other innumerable cases of deterioration may make their appearance. Such is the case with your physical body. Every function and activity of your system, day and night, physical, mental, and spiritual, is dependent on the attention you give to it.
The kind and the quality of the food you put into your body is of vital importance to every phase of your existence. Good nutrition regenerates and rebuilds the cells and tissues which constitute your physical body. Undigested food, and the processes by which waste matter is eliminated from the body, without fermentation and putrefaction, is dependent as well on good nutrition. The possibility of attaining any degree of vibrant health is prevented if such fermentation occurs, accumulates, and is retained by the body.
The elimination of undigested food and other waste products is equally as important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food. In fact, I can think of nothing more significant and vital than preventing the danger of inevitable effects of toxemia and toxic poisons that are a result of the neglect and failure to expel feces, debris, and waste matter from the body. Few of us realize that failure to effectively eliminate waste products from the body causes so much fermentation and putrefaction in the large intestine, or colon, that the neglected accumulation of such waste can, and frequently does, result in a lingering demise!
If a person has eaten processed, fried and overcooked foods, devitalized starches, sugar and excessive amounts of salt, his colon cannot possibly be efficient, even if he should have a bowel movement two to three times a day!
Instead of furnishing nourishment to the nerves, muscles, cells and tissues of the walls of the colon, such foods can actually cause starvation of the colon. A starved colon may let a lot of fecal matter pass through it, but it is unable to carry on the last of the digestive and nourishing processes and functions intended for it.
In order to live, the human body must be nourished. The cells and tissues composing the anatomy are live organisms with an amazing degree of resilence, elasticity and buoyancy. To be able to replenish and re-invigorate these cells and tissues, their nourishment must necessarily be composed of live elements, i.e., foods with life-giving properties. There are also foods whose ultimate function is to cleanse and remove used-up cells and tissues and pilot this waste matter to the colon for evacuation.
The fiber which is so essential for the proper and complete digestion of our food is needed in the colon just as much as in the small intestine. Such fiber, however must be composed of roughage, that which is found in raw foods. When these fibers pass through the intestines they become, figuratively speaking, highly magnetized, and in this condition are very helpful in the functions involved in the various parts of the intestines. In addition to receiving the residue of that part of our food which is not digested, the colon also accommodates itself to the fiber – the roughage – in the food upon which it depends for its “intestinal broom.”
When the mineral elements which compose the foods we eat are saturated with oil or grease, the digestive organs cannot process them efficiently and they are passed out of the small intestine into the colon as debris. In addition, the body has a great deal of waste to dispose of through the colon in the form of used-up cells and tissues. When“demagnetized” food passes through the body system with little or no benefit, eventually, experience has proved, these foods leave a coating on the inner walls of the colon like plaster on a wall. In the course of time this coating may gradually increase its thickness until there is on a small hole through the center, and the matter so evacuated may contain much undigested food from which the body derives little or no benefit. The consequent result is a starvation of which we are not conscious but which cause old age and senility to race towards us with the throttle wide open.
Infirmity and sickness, at any age, is the direct result of loading up the body with food which contains no vitality, and at the same time allowing the intestines to remain loaded with waste matter.
The Colon – your Body’s Sewer
The colon is a natural breeding ground for bacteria. The purpose and function of this bacteria is to neutralize, dissipate, avoid and prevent a toxic condition from developing in the colon. However, there are two types of bacteria: namely, the healthy, scavenging type known as bacilli coli, and the pathogenic or disease-producing kind. In a proper, clean, healthy environment the healthy scavenging bacteria will control the pathogenic kind. When too much fermentation and putrefaction is generated in the colon as a result of neglecting to keep it as free from feces and waste as possible, the pathogenic bacteria proliferate and ailments result. It is necessary that such waste be expelled from the body, and for this purpose your colon is equipped with a very efficient system of elimination. That is to say, “efficient” if it is in good and proper working order, functioning on the schedule suited to your physical condition.
The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption. It is impossible, when we eat two, three or more meals in a day, not to have residue accumulating in the colon in the form of undigested food particles, as well as the end product from food which has undergone digestion. Furthermore, not only does food waste accumulate in the colon, but also the millions of cells and tissues which have served their purpose and have been replaced. These cells and tissues are dead proteins of a highly toxic nature if allowed to ferment and putrefy. You no doubt have experienced the offensive aroma emanating from the body of an animal which has died and whose carcass has begun to decompose. The cells and tissues in the anatomy undergo the same decomposition when they are allowed to remain in the colon longer than necessary.
In simple words, the colon is the sewage system of the body. Nature’s laws of preservation and hygiene require and insist that this sewage system be cleansed regularly, under penalty of the innumerable ailments, sicknesses and diseases that follow, as the night follows the day, if waste is allowed to accumulate. Not to cleanse the colon is like having the entire garbage collecting staff in you city go on strike for days on end! The accumulation of garbage in the streets creates putrid, odoriferous, unhealthy gases which are dispersed into the atmosphere.
CONSTIPATION – YOUR BODY’S GREATEST ENEMY
What is Constipation?
The expression constipation is derived from the Latin word “constipates,” which translated means “to press or crowd together, to pack, to cram.” Consequently, to be constipated means that the packed accumulation of feces in the bowel may seem to be normal, in spite of an accumulation of feces somewhere along the line in the colon!
The fact of the matter is that constipation is the number one affliction underlying nearly every ailment; it can be imputed to be the initial, primary cause of nearly every disturbance of the human system. It is vital to stress that constipation affects the health of the colon, upon which the health of the body in its entirety depends.
How Constipation Effects the Colon’s Function
If solving the problem of constipation were merely a case of washing out loose material lying free inside any part of the colon, it would not be too great a difficulty to clear the situation. A colonic would most likely be sufficient to take care of its removal. The problem, however, is not quite so simple to dispose of. Constipation involves not only the unnecessary retention of feces in the rectum, but also the retention present throughout the first half of the colon, from the cecum to the middle of the transverse colon. The cecum is found next to the ileo cecal valve at the beginning of the colon. (Please refer to the Colon Therapy chart. in Dr. Normal Walker's Book)
The wall of this section of the colon is equipped with sensitive nerves and muscles and whose function it is to create wavelike motions, known as peristaltic waves, to propel the contents of the colon from the cecum to the rectum for eventual evacuation. This is a distance of approximately five feet. If you will refer to the COLON THERAPY CHART you will see that the cecum is that part of the ascending colon at the exit of the small intestine, and the rectum is the lower part of the bowel.
Besides the formation of these peristaltic waves, this first half of the colon has two other very important functions. First, it must extract from all the residue coming from the small intestine any available nutritional material which the small intestine was unable to collect. For this purpose, it mulches the material which passes into it from the small intestine and absorbs the liquid and other elements through its walls into the blood stream. The nutrition which has thus been extracted from the colon is collected by the blood vessels lining the walls of the colon and is carried to the liver for processing.
Obviously, if the feces in the colon have putrefied and fermented, any nutritional elements present in it would pass into the blood stream as polluted products. What would otherwise be nutritional becomes, in fact, the generation of toxemia. Toxemia is a condition in which the blood contains poisonous products which are produced by the growth of pathogenic, or disease-producing bacteria. Pimples, for example, are usually the first indication that toxemia has found its way into the body.
The other important function of the first half of the colon is to gather from the glands in its walls the intestinal flora needed to lubricate the colon. Far too many people, professional and laymen, think that enemas and colon irrigations wash out the intestinal flora and thus deprive the colon of a valuable means of lubrication. This school of thought is utterly false and totally devoid of truth and fact. Obviously, when the packed accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to fecal incrustation, it is not possible for the lining of the colon to function normally, and the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora, or lubrication. Such lack of lubrication only serves to intensify a state of constipation and to generate toxemia.
This fecal incrustation interferes with, if it does not actually prevent, the infusion of the necessary intestinal flora for colon lubrication, the formation of peristaltic waves for evacuation purposes, and the absorption and use of the additional nutritional elements present in the waste residue coming into the colon from the small intestine.
It does not require much imagination to perceive that the adhesive quality of the feces in the colon is readily susceptible to creating a coating on the lining or wall of the colon, resembling a layer of plaster in its consistency. It is equally obvious that such a coating, in preventing the normal function of the colon has the insidious effect of becoming a generator of toxicity, to the detriment of health, happiness and longevity.
Just Exactly What Is a Colon Irrigation?
After the plaster-like coating has definitely formed on the walls of the colon, not any number of enemas will efficiently dissolve it. Furthermore, to remove it too rapidly would cause the inner lining of the colon to become “raw” and painful. Like the removal of plaster, the fecal coating in the colon must be thoroughly soaked and saturated with just plain water in order that its removal may take place gradually, comfortably, and effectively. This can be accomplished by a series of colon irrigations. A colon irrigation is administered by an operator trained and accustomed to this work.
To be efficient, a colon irrigation requires a period of ½ an hour to one hour; during that period, 20 or 30 gallons of water may have been inserted into the colon through the rectum, at the rate of several ounces at a time, then expelled each time. The first two or three irrigations can prove how sensible and comfortable the procedure actually is.

“My study and intensive research on this subject convinces me more than every that no treatment or healing procedure should every be started without first giving the patient a series of colon irrigations in order to clean out the colon and remove the incipient source of infection. There is no ailment, sickness or disease that will not respond to treatment quicker and more effectively than it will after the administration of a series of colon irrigations.” Dr. Normal W. Walker

Is it going to hurt? What is it really like? A session is a comfortable experience for many people. Your dignity is always maintained. You are lying on a comfortable colonic table. The techniques utilized allow a small amount of water that is purified to flow into the colon gently stimulating the colon's natural contractions to release the softened waste. This process is repeated through the session. The tube is about the size of a pencil, disposable with each client, and is privately inserted by the client. The therapist is present guiding and supporting the process. The waste is expelled around the tube into a drainage area. You will see the waste being released through a closed system in a viewing tub.
Am I going to lose weight? People have reported anywhere from 8 to 15 pounds lost during a session, including those last difficult-to-lose 5 lbs. Keep in mind this represents pounds of fecal matter, parasites and poisons. So, your food intake, exercise and rest all contribute to keep your weight in balance.
