The theory here goes something like this; an advertiser pitches a product or service that seeks to rid the body of waste products accumulated over the years due to stress and unhealthy food. What CRAP! (Pun intended). Your body, with rare true medical exceptions does not need any outside help to cleanse itself. Your GI tract does not accumulate toxins or pounds of undigested food as claimed in many an info-commercial. Your liver works hard and does a great job all on its’ own. Your colon and lower intestine do not have pieces of sirloin steak from that dinner in Chicago 10 years ago. Listening to some of these pitchmen, they make it sounds like you have 10-15 pounds of undigested food rotting in your stomach and intestines, interfering with fat loss and causing fatigue and stress.
NOT TRUE! The lining of the bowels turn itself over every 4-7 days. Dr. Thomas Sokol, the Chief of Proctology at Century City in Los Angeles puts it this way; “The bowels shed their cell layers like the skin of a snake every week, so it is impossible for any accumulated residue from years ago to be in there.”
So stop worrying and don’t be fooled again! It would be impossible to carry around the equivalent of a McDonald’s happy meal in your gut all of the time and not be in serious, immediate need of medical care. Anyone selling such trash is only after your money! Don’t take advice on your medical care by listening to an advertisement. If you still have any doubts about what I have shared with you contact your local hospital and speak with the any of the gastric specialists that practice there. And by the way, cleansing treatments can be hazardous. Don’t attempt any such treatment unless it is through your M.D. (not your chiropractor or anyone else).
