The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me calling the shots, nothing would be accomplished.”
Then the HEART spoke up. “Without me pumping blood to your brain, you could not function.”
The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong; without me to put food in the mouth, nothing would work.”
The LEGS said, “I should be in charge, because I carry the body wherever it needs to go."
The STOMACH said, “I process food and give all of you energy. Without me, your food would not digest.”
The LUNGS bellowed back, “Without me, distributing oxygen, you could not function.”
THE EYES blinked and said, “Since I must look out for all of you and tell you where the danger lurks, I am the most important body part.”
The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”
Then the COLON meekly spoke up. “I am most important because you need me to eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”
Everyone laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as we are? You’re just a smelly old sewer.” The poor colon, his feelings were hurt! He turned away and thought, “I’ll show them.” So, he just shut down!
Then he sat back and waited.
The BRAIN was stupefied.
The HEART’S beat was weak and irregular.
The ARMS were weak and couldn’t lift anything.
The LEGS got wobbly.
The EYES got cloudy.
The LUNGS breathed shallowly.
The KIDNEYS quit eliminating.
The BLOOD became toxic.
The COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting. It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was on total agreement:
The COLON was unanimously voted the MVP award!
Detoxification is likely the oldest medical modality known to man. Ancient Greek, Sumerian/Babylonian, Roman, Jewish, Native American, Asian, and East Indian traditions all began the healing process with detoxification.
Toxic overload is the one thing that affects every area of your health, and most people totally ignore it. We focus on diet and supplements, but if your colon can’t absorb the nutrients (because it’s toxic), then what good are they?
Think about it -- fish can’t live in toxic water, no matter how beneficial the food is that you’re feeding them. Neither can we thrive if our bodies are toxic.
And if your toilet is clogged, is the problem a broken toilet?-- Or do you need to clear the pipes?
“Constipation can undermine the whole body, including the immune system, and it is now known that irregular bowel movements can be directly related to serious health conditions as well as emotional issues such as depression.”
