The necessity in today’s world for going on a Colon Cleanse diet cannot be overemphasized! Most of us are so toxic we do not realize it, and we are amazed when we go to have colonic therapy, and in shock when we see what is deposited out of our bodies. A few years ago I went with a friend to the Ann Wigmore foundation, in order for her to try to beat her cancer. One of the requirements of the program was that she attended colonic therapy at least once a week. When we would get her on the table, massive amounts of waste would come out of her bowels. The colon cleansing therapist turned and said to me, “No wonder she got sick”, as my friend’s bowels were so impacted with old fecal matter!
Unfortunately, my friend lost her battle with cancer, leaving behind two small children. John Wayne, the great Western American Cowboy, died of cancer directly related to a dirty colon. During the autopsy, the doctors removed over 40 lbs of fecal matter from his colon, incredible. Even Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll, also had a bowel that contained over 40 pounds worth of old fecal matter trapped there. Do you think he could have used a good colon cleansing?
The fact of the matter is, that more diseases and unhealthy conditions can be attributed to a compacted colon, than almost any other malady we suffer in the modern world! It is imperative therefore that we purge out our bowels. Recent studies have indicated very strongly that the Acai Berry is one of the most effective and powerful foods that we can have within our bodies to cleanse our bowels and keep our colons clean and healthy. Apparently the Acai Berry is so high in anti oxidants as well as fiber, that it has the magic combination for keeping our own plumbing clean. Plus, the Acai Berry is also loaded with minerals, B vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, and protein.
