One of the functions of the first half of the colon is to gather the intestinal flora needed for the colon. When the accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to fecal encrustation, it is difficult for the colon to function normally & the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora.
The resulting lack of lubrication intensifies a state of constipation & generates toxemia. This upsets the normal acid-alkaline balance & the growth of the friendly bacteria is stunted. Cleansing the colon will help bring the acid-alkaline ratio back into balance. In this environment, the friendly bacteria will again thrive & disease causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop. Clients are advised to take oral pro-biotics while colon cleansing to assist in reestablishing colonies of beneficial bacteria throughout the intestines.
