The colon falls prey to cancer and
disease all too often. We seem to be willing to use medical procedure
to find and correct problems once they have occurred but what about
preventing problems or helping the body with it's job of detoxification?
An enema can help to eradicate constipation, cleanse the body of parasites
and worms before they can do severe damage and stimulate organs to more
optimum control of toxins and waste. While bearing in mind that
medical research has not proven the benefit of the simple enema, one that
cannot be refuted is a cure for constipation. Other schools of thought
are claims as to the physical benefits of colon cleansing including a
stronger immune system, clearer skin, alleviated allergy symptoms, and
weight loss. In mental health terms, some recipients of enema colon cleanses
claim that they are less depressed and anxious which can be a by-product of
Coffee enemas cleanse the colon, relieve constipation, detoxify and enhance
the healing process of the body, according to
Health-Information-Fitness.com. Coffee enemas became popular in the
first half of the twentieth century as part of a general detoxification
program for patients with tuberculosis and cancer. Coffee enemas cleanse the
colon with a mixture of brewed coffee and filtered water implanted into the
colon followed by excretion of waste. The claim of the coffee enema is
that the ingredients caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline present
in coffee enemas help relax smooth muscles, which causes blood vessels and
bile ducts to dilate helping the liver and colon to function better.
Said benefits include the relief of headaches, nausea, pain and fatigue.
Depending on your diet and other lifestyle factors, you could have between 5
and 20 pounds of dried fecal matter stored in your colon right now. Sugary
foods, lots of meats and carbs, processed foods, and a lack of fiber in our
diet are all causes. An enema can flush all of this stuff out.
What is the Sigmoid colon
The sigmoid colon, also referred to as
the pelvic colon or sigmoid flexure, is a part of the digestive system and
is a little over a foot long. It can normally be found in the pelvis, but it
has a certain amount of freedom in its movement. Therefore, it can sometimes
be found in the abdominal cavity instead. It extends from
the left side of the abdomen to the central portion of the pelvis and is able to expand and contract dependent upon the amount of fecal material
being stored until it is ready to be evacuated from the body. The
Sigmoid colon is the part of the large intestine that is closest to the
rectum and anus. The sigmoid section is responsible for helping to “tie
together” the digestive system.
PURPOSE OF THE SIGMOID
The sigmoid colon is responsible for moving waste towards the anus. It does
not do this job alone, however, as the rectum is also responsible in this
regard. The sigmoid also serves as a collection site for waste material.
When the sigmoid contracts, the process of waste removal is initiated.
The sigmoid is also responsible for absorbing water to help keep the stool
loose and easy to remove. In addition, it secretes mucus to help the stool
pass through the digestive system more easily and to help protect the
digestive system from toxins. The lower the quality of foods you eat, the
more mucus the sigmoid colon will need to create. These foods include those
that are refined, have unnatural additives, or are high in fat, such as
meats and cheeses.
Although inappropriate diet and an unhealthy lifestyle considerably add to
the risks of sigmoid colon cancer, the disease may also be influenced by an
underlying genetic predisposition. Sigmoid colon cancer statistics reveal
that about five percent of colon cancers world wide, are caused solely through genetic
dysfunctions and physiological abnormalities. Depending upon their
underlying cause, sigmoid colon cancers may be either unexpected (sporadic
colon cancers), or genetically-inherited.
Colonoscopy, especially those who have blood relatives affected by colon
cancer should be a major part of preventive maintenance. It can
quickly spot troublesome polyps or tumors.
