i’ve been wanting to communicate the importance of colon cleansing for awhile, but after coming across this article by matt monarch, i don’t think it could’ve been said any better, and backed with more detail, research and personal experience. talking about your poop/pipes is uncomfortable for some, but i don’t mind so much. if you’re so concerned about what you’re putting into your body, you should at least take some notice of what’s coming out! enjoy! much love, ~vanessa
Cleansing the Colon on a PERIODIC Basis, by Matt Monarch
Whenever you improve your diet (i.e. eating less, consistently, compared to your previous intake), you will inevitably go through detoxification. The more you improve your diet, or in other words, the more damaging foods that you elminate from your diet, the more you will detoxify. For example, the most cleansing diet that ANYONE can do is go on a water fast, because you are eliminating everything from your diet except water. Generally, you are advised to lie in bed during water fasting, as you detox, regenerate and heal.
About 10 generations ago (1000 years or so), man was not eating processed foods such as refined sugars or “McDonalds” and breathing polluted air like today. As our ancestors started eating more poorly and creating more polution with each generation, they would pass down their toxic cells as they reproduced, until we have reached our current state of widespread gross toxicity today. We are born with toxicity. Studies show that human breast milk is more toxic today than ever before in history.
Keeping all of this in consideration, most of us have also been eating poorly ourselves for decades on end. In this condition, if we were to eliminate everything from our diet except water and go on a fast, we will be detoxing a huge amount… Now… When you go on a 100% Raw Food Diet, you are eliminating everything from your diet except the most water-rich and easy to digest foods. Choosing this kind of lifestyle is ALSO like going on a Life-Long Fast. It’s like going on a “Raw Food Fast”. That is why it is called the DETOX diet. An apple is more than 80% water, it barely taxes the digestive system, and it is the same kind of situation with most fruits and vegetables. When you go on a 100% Raw Food Diet, you step into the process of bringing your body back to the days 1000 years or so ago when we walked a much cleaner Earth.
Regardless of your diet, your body’s natural process is to detox and cleanse every single night. Even if you are eating “McDonalds” three times a day, your body cleanses as much as it can throughout the night…and then you wake up groggy. Then most people seem to drink coffee in the morning to attempt to counter this groggy effect. With this type of lifestyle, you cleanse and detox a lot throughout the night, however, you become more and more toxic with every single passing day, because more toxicity is going in daily than the body can detox out. When you go on a Raw Food Diet, you are still going to do this natural process of detoxing every single night… however, the tides change a little here… Comparatively speaking MUCH LESS toxicity is going into your body on a daily basis and your body can easily handle cleansing out any toxicity created from those raw foods that you ate that day in a short period of time. Therefore, during this ! nightly cleansing process, the body has energy freed up to go after older, deeper DENSE matter that has built up through the decades and generations of poor eating. As the years go by on a 100% Raw Food Diet, you are going to consistently cleanse deeper and deeper and you will become “cleaner and cleaner”. at a cellular level. Side Note: The more you detoxify, the cleaner you become, the more sensitive you become to past food choices & toxins such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, and perfumes… and lastly… the more in-tune you also become to that universal cosmic spiritual energy.
This release of old waste matter is going to continue throughout your 100% Raw Food path, whether you are aware of it or not. The MOST EFFECTIVE way to get around this is to cleanse the colon with colonics (colon hydrotherapy). NOTHING DETOXIFIES THE BODY MORE EFFICIENTLY THAN CLEANSING THE COLON! ALL of the health institutes out there that bring people in and help them heal from degenerative diseases utilize colonics and enemas. In my opninion, it is the number one reason why these health institutes have such a HIGH SUCCESS RATE in healing people from all sorts of degenerative diseases. I have seen people who just wanted to slightly improve their diet AND were willing to do the colon hydrotherapy on a periodic basis, and they pretty much healed based on the colon cleansing. You name ANY health food institute out there that has a high success rate like this and guess what they do… They usually give everyone three col! onics a week and everyone does two enemas a day… in the morning and evening. Ding ding ding…!!! Healing occurs and cleansing the colon is the number one reason why. When these people improve their diets, it is imperative to also get this old toxic waste out, swiftly and effectively.
It is unavoidable: the TRUE 100% Raw Food Eater will feel very toxic, again and again, as waste is released DEEP from their cells in detox. Most people who aren’t willing to cleanse the colon on a periodic basis don’t do well on the 100% Raw Food Diet because of these repeated cycles of feeling toxic. Often, when someone runs into a “rut” with the Raw Food Diet, they think that fasting is the solution. This can actually make the situation worse if the real issue is located in a dirty colon. They are already cleansing STRONGLY on this raw food diet and then they go on a fast and eliminate MORE FOODS from their diet, accelerating the cleansing process even more. This just adds more toxicity to the bonfire and can worsen the situation, whereas a simple colonic or series of colonics could remedy the situation.
Many people think “I have bowel movements three times a day, I don’t need to do colon hydrotherpay to aid my detox”. There is a GREAT chance that you may be extremely toxic AND poop three times a day. The amount of solid waste being eliminated daily does NOT determine the toxicity within the human body. For example, when a person goes on a water fast, they DETOX A LOT! and it is definitely not only coming out of the body in the form of feces. The tongue is coated white, they have body odor, mucus is pouring and their breath smells. If they were only detoxing through solid waste on this fast, they would obviously be pooping all day long; detox has many routes other than solid bowel movements, hence the amount of feces someone passes daily doesn’t necessarily correlate directly to their level of detox. To learn more about what toxicity really is, you can read about the blood gases in my book Raw Success or read the Blood Gas Theory article I wrote HERE.
Now, I am not suggesting to do colon hydrotherapy EVERY SINGLE DAY. However, I do feel that it is key to do this on a PERIODIC, ongoing basis for ultimate success on any type of improved diet. Ironically, the more foods you eliminate from your diet (the less you eat), it becomes ideal to cleanse the colon more often. Many people think that the 100% Raw Food Diet is what we are meant to eat in nature, and therefore, it should all work itself out, without colon cleansing. I consider this a little ABSURD considering the current condition of this planet and the human species; we can use all the help we can get in terms of detox. When you go on a 100% Raw Food Diet, you initiate the process of bringing things back to HUNDREDS of years ago, when we walked in a pristine environment.
Here is a general recommendation for the frequency of doing professional colonics. Each person’s condition is naturally different and someone weighing 300 pounds may require more than a slim person, for example. If someone is on a Standard American Diet without improving their diet at all, a colonic once a year may provide some benefit. Unfortunately, in this kind of situation, it would pretty much just be like hitting the reset button until the inevitable. Someone on a WHOLE FOOD, intermediate cooked food diet, I would suggest to do colonics 3 – 4 times a year. Ironically, if you are on a 100% Raw Food Diet, I would recommend doing colonics once a month. I know some individuals with serious degenerative diseases who want to heal so badly, that they do colonics weekly. I know of some individuals who wanted to heal so badly that they did a professional colonic 3 days a week, with enemas on the other days.
I don’t gain anything personally from sharing this information with you; I don’t make any money from colonics. I share this information because I KNOW from experience with myself and THOUSANDS of others who have benefited from cleansing the colon that this WORKS! If you think this is some kind of “ego” thing, well, I’m sure to the majority of the human population, I look like an IDIOT trotting around this planet telling everyone to stick pipes up their bums! I share this information because, quite simply, it works…whether you choose to take action on this or not is up to you…
For ULTIMATE success on any improved diet, the key is to not just cleanse the colon once here or there, but to do it on a periodic basis. Cleansing the colon CONSISTENTLY on a periodic basis has the potential to make a huge difference for your health and well-being.
