“We are a constipated nation. If you pass small stools, you have to have large hospitals”
Dr Denis Burkitt.
What is constipation?
In my opinion, if you do not have a bowel motion at least twice each day; you are constipated. If you do not eliminate several feet of waste material during the course of the day; you are constipated. If you have to put any effort at all into getting your waste out; you are constipated. If you have to sit on the toilet and wait for your bowels to move, then…You. Are. Constipated.
“One of the most death-defying acts a human being can do is to allow the remains of a meal (the fecal material) to remain in contact with the delicate lining of the colon for three or four days at a time. That is exactly what some 99% of Americans [Westerners] who eat standard American [Western] fare are doing. Cancer can be caused by body surfaces coming in prolonged contact with potent cancer causing chemicals in the bowels”
Dr. Bruce Miller, Author, DDS, CNS.
Constipation is rife
Over 70% of people regularly suffer from digestive illnesses such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, stomach-aches and nausea. Poor digestion and constipation are to blame for a host of modern diseases, almost all of these illnesses are preventable. Many middle aged people have 1-7 kilograms of undigested fecal matter stuck in their colon. And that is after a bowel motion.
The gastro-colic reflex evolved over thousands of years. When your stomach gets filled a message is sent to your bowels to evacuate. This natural gastro-colic reflex has now been lost. Can you get your gastro-colic reflex back? Of course, through changing diet, lifestyle, and routines and cleaning out your intestines.
“90% of all chronic diseases are due to infection of the gastrointestinal tract”

Low-fibre intake = stagnant waste = autointoxication
When food sits in the colon for a long period of time due to a lack of fibre, it starts to ferment and become rancid. This waste can mix with other bacteria and chemicals, creating newer and more dangerous toxic substances. Impacted waste material in the bowel can harden and thicken over the years, restricting the colon passage, slowing our metabolism and limiting the amount of nutrients that can be absorbed from the foods we eat.
This starts a vicious and deadly cycle of low nutrient uptake; leading to acidosis, constipation, bowel disease and early painful death.
