Most of the food in the American diet, has a high amount of white flour and sugar, it is very hard to digest. Much of the food that is sold in stores or made at restaurants, which we call convenient food, also has a lot of chemicals and preservatives.
Inside the body, these chemicals preservatives, white flour and sugar become glue. When they get wet with something as simple as water, it turns to a gluey substance that sticks to the insides of our intestinal system. The intestinal system is very important because it helps to take nutrients from the food and pass it into the blood stream to feed our body the fuel it needs.
When we have consumed too much white flour, sugar chemicals and processed foods, the path ways that are inside the small intestine and colon get blocked. The passage ways that transfer cellular fuel from our digested food are clogged with this gooey mess-and we get plugged up. Nothing moves. We do not get the nutrition we need. The nutrition from the food cannot pass through the blockage and into the blood stream. This is part of why people feel hungry. Even after they just eat a huge meal.
Another thing that happens inside of the intestinal system is that when too much of this white flour glue sticks to our insides, it’s stickiness attracts more white flour sugar-based chemical preservative type food. All of a sudden, you’ll start to have layers of the sticky gluey stuff ferment inside of your intestinal system.
Add to that sticky gluey mass undigested meat, fruit that rots if it’s not completely broken down, highly acidic and chemical ridden drinks such as: coffee filled with creamers, sweeteners and other artificial flavors, energy drinks, and sometimes even vitamins that get stuck in the gluey mass. Now you have is called an impacted colon.
Did you know that there have been autopsies on people who have died from complications of an impacted colon? Some colons gets so impacted that they can weigh 30 and 40 and even 50 pounds! That’s a lot of poop to be carrying around in your belly. A healthy colon should weigh only about 4 pounds! (Think about all the people you know, who pat their belly and say they have “a steak and potato belly” – or better yet… ‘beer belly’ . Those are the bellies that when you pat on the don’t jiggle the pretty solid. The fact is, they probably are steak and potato bellies… steak and potatoes that never left the colon!)
Impacted colons ferment and are the cause of many diseases and symptoms listed above!
For optimal health, each person should be having one healthy bowel movement a day for each full meal they consume. So if you eat three meals a day you should have a least three bowel movements a day.
Most Americans are shocked to hear that! In fact, they think having one bowel movement every couple days is normal. When it comes to weight loss and optimal health and impacted colon can cause a lot of problems.
So one of the tips that I recommend to my clients are to do colon cleanses at least twice a year. In fact, it is always healthy to have non-chemical intestinal support herbs available for those times when you’re bowel movements become a regular. There is a special one if you eat red meat and another if you have more fish, turkey, or are vegetarian.
Also- most people who may have a ‘movement’ a day- can still be constipated. Your movements should be firm, fluffy and floaty. If they sink (and stink)– you do no have enough healthy fiber. If they are too runny and wet- you do not have enough bulk.
For people who have a sensitive colon and inconsistent bowel movements, meaning: your cycle is the ‘little ploop, ploop, ploopers (kind of like grapes) one day, then solid the next time, and runny right after that- you need to be careful to cleanse with a gentle bulking cleanse. There are two I recommend. One is flavored apple cinnamon. The other is a berry flavor.
The colon is a muscle and it can be trained to work correctly- even if you are not having the type of movements or frequency you should. I realize this is a sensitive subject – so if you want to chat privately to get more insight and guidance on how to get ‘moving’- contact me.
During my injury, my intestinal system shut down. Literally. For a while there I was only having a movement about once a week to week and a half. Not fun. I was able to regain my colon health completely naturally – and still have a strong healthy colon today. Pooping is important. It’s good for you- and when it comes to gaining health, vitality (and yes, even weight loss)- this is an area to take care of.
Another key to success for weight loss and gaining vitality is to make sure you drink enough plain water each day. The body is 75% water, and if we do not drink enough plain water everyday we can actually start to slow down our metabolism and retain the water we have. (Coffee tea soda juice, adult beverages are not water.) Water is water- and the body understands that. You can actually drink a lot of liquids and still be dehydrated.
Another success tip is to make sure you get at least seven hours of sleep each day. The body needs to go back into a repair mode, and it does that when sleeping.
To recap the leadership health learning lesson today:
l. Cleanse out the old garbage and impacted food
2. Start to give yourself new nutritionally dense food
3. Eat these smaller meals every 2-3 hours. ( Goal: at least 6 meals a day- include lean and green food)
4. Supplement with high quality supplements because the food that we eat does not bring with it the nutrition it once did.
5. Get a health coach– someone to help you through the changes and be a champion for your success.
6. Drink ½ your body weight in pure water each day
7. Sleep for at least 7 hours each night
Bonus: After a couple weeks on a new food intake program, introduce movement, (exercise) to help pick up your metabolism and add lean muscle.
Here’s to getting you MOVING for health!
