The Vitamin D Council reports: "Sun tanning equipment's UVB light is an excellent source of Vitamin D."

Vitamin D deficiency is a key factor in adverse health conditions, including cancer and certain autoimmune diseases.

For these reasons, the Optimal Health Center now offers a safe, Dr. Mercola-approved, vitamin D-producing, UVB tanning bed for sale on our website.

enema ads Cleanse Your Colon!

Why? To improve your health. Many people feel markedly better with regular colon cleansing as a part of their lives. As an ad in the December 18, 1920, issue of the Saturday Evening Post, America's most influential and beloved magazine of the time, claimed:

"Because keeping the body clean inside will prevent much of the sickness in every home..."

"Protects the health of all the family from Baby to Baby's grandparents..."

"Known from one end of the country to the other for the splendid satisfaction it gives its users..."

However, there is a great deal of debate about the colon cleanse. What follows are three theories as to why so many people find that they feel better, and even seem to heal faster, as a result of taking regular enemas or receiving regular colon hydrotherapy.
1. Regular colon cleansing lightens the toxic load in our environments. We are constantly assaulted by toxic substances in our environments. Disinfectants to deodorizers, fragrances to fossil fuels, and pesticides to paints are all full of harmful chemicals. Our bodies have evolved with a very sophisticated detoxification system, but over time our bodies are negatively affected by environmental toxins.

Well-placed enemas and colonics can play a crucial role in good health because when we cleanse the colon (a key player in our detoxification system), the load of toxins imposed upon the body is diminished. When toxins penetrate the colon wall, they are carried into our bloodstream and lymph system, increasing our body's vulnerability to different diseases. With fewer toxins to purge, the body as a whole is under less stress and can devote more of its energy to healing and maintaining health.gastrointestinal health panel

2. Regular colon cleansing reduces the disease-causing microbial load. When a colon is in a state of dysbiosis -- the condition of having microbial imbalances or parasites -- regular colon cleansing can dramatically improve the situation. As I see in my work with gastrointestinal health panels, parasites are all too common. Blastocystis hominis, Cryptosporidium, and Clostridium difficile ruin people's lives. The colon cleanse assists the body to eliminate these and other microbes and their waste products. To determine if your body is struggling with a parasitic overload, use a gastrointestinal health panel.

3. Colon cleansing offers more room. When the volume of the colon is regularly reduced with a colon cleanse, the overall pressure within the pelvic area is reduced. Just think about how your stomach feels when you have eaten more than you should have. If you've ever had a gut full of stool (and most of us have) you know that the effect is anything but pleasant. What a relief it can be to decrease the fullness of one's abdomen. The benefits of emptying one's colon go beyond an increased sense of lightness and well-being. Taking pressure off neighboring organs and enhancing blood flow to the entire abdominal/pelvic region reduces strain to the hip joints and the lumbar spine.

digestive tract COLON CANCER

Colon cancer is the second most common type of cancer in the United States. Many scientific studies have shown that there is an increased risk of colon cancer in people who are chronically constipated. The connection between bowel disease and constipation seems to be related to the fact that constipation dramatically increases what is called the bowel transit time, or the time that it takes food to go from the mouth, through the digestive system, and out as stool (a "bowel movement").

On one side of the professional spectrum there is the guidance of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which reports that the "normal" range of bowel movements in a week ranges from 3 to 21. Among most natural health practitioners, however, it is felt that the optimal bowel transit time is between 8 and 18 hours (or 9 to 21 bowel movements per week).

Like all mucous membranes, the interior surface of the colon is absorptive. Stool can contain many carcinogenic materials that when remaining in contact with the colon wall promote cancer of the colon. A regular colon cleanse can limit the amount of time cancer-causing stool is in contact with the colon wall.

How Do I Cleanse My Colon?

There are many options for colon cleansing. Colon irrigation through enemas or colon hydrotherapy allows us to literally wash out the colon by introducing filtered and temperature-regulated water. We can also briefly introduce healing substances such as coffee and essential oils into the colon.

Dietary colon cleanse supplements can also be great tools to help our bodies with the natural processes of removing unhealthy substances such as carcinogens, heavy metals, and metabolic toxins from the colon. Dietary colon cleanse supplements assist the liver with its phase I and phase II detoxification processes.

At the Optimal Health Center, a successful colon cleanse health clinic, we recommend that clients use a dietary colon cleanse supplement detoxification program 4 times per year. For this purpose, clients use our Ortho Core Restore Kit.

If you decide that regular colon cleansing is a good fit for you, feel free to contact the Optimal Health Center for support anytime. We are available via phone, email, in person, Facebook, live chats, and video chats.
