The colon is one of the most significant organs in the human body. The body eliminates harmful toxic substances through the colon. However, if the colon does not function properly, serious health issues may arise. In fact, if certain organs in the body malfunction, we can experience countless health issues.

Dona Gates, a founder of ‘Body Ecology’, thinks that a healthy digestive system is a key for maintaining the overall health and well-being. For instance, the function of numerous organs in the body depends on the proper functioning of the colon.

The nutrients and the water are stored in the colon in the form of waste. The colon divides them, so that the body can use them and eliminate the waste. As it is a complex process, an optimal health of the colon is required. However, if the colon does not function properly, it accumulates toxins and bacteria, which lead to numerous health issues.

Digestion also plays an important part in the elimination of waste from the colon. Food digestion lasts from 22 – 44 hours and depends on the food we consume. If we eat food that is low in fiber and nutrients, the food digestion will last at least 70 hours. This means that there will be 20 pounds of waste in the colon. As a result of this, we will experience constipation, stomach pain and irregular bowel movement.
