Essential reading for the health-conscious.
on May 4, 2003
I first became interested in natural healing and cleansing diets when I joined a gym and decided to do a full 360 and do the internal cleansing. What you read in Dr. Jensen's book could save your life, or at least open your eyes.
In a nutshell, Dr. Jensen states that many common health ailments (from diabetes to chronic pain) are aided and intensified by poor colon health. Poor diet, lack of fluid, and not eating enough of the right foods (and too much of the wrong ones) causes your colon to get blocked and can lead to a lifetime of health problems. What I learned was shocking, and it is beleived that most people have 10 pounds of impaced fecal material in them. Dr. Jensen's program for cleansing is meant to help clear it out, and promote an overall good state of health.
While I will not testify to the effectiveness of the program, I found the information helpful and fascinating. Dr. Jensen's program is easy for the average person to grasp, and it makes sense on so many levels. Most people are shy about discussing bowel care, but few realize how important it is. This book is essential reading, and I know it has helped me see things differently in the way I take care of myself.
One word of warning, though. This book contains 25 full color photos of actual cleansing discharge from Dr. Jensen's patients. This is absolutely stomach turning to look at, but keep in mind that the point of the book is not too sugar-coat the need for bowel care, so it is important that you see the plan in action. Just don't read the book while eating.
With the trend of healthy living on the rise, many people (myself included) are trying to break bad habits and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Bowel management never even entered my mind until I read Dr. Jensen's books, and seeing things now, I am glad I did. This is one of the best books on the subject, and I would recommend it to anyone.
