06 May Concept of health maintenance-intestinal detoxification
Why the intestinal tract determines your life’s health
Intestinal tract and health are inextricably linked. Intestinal tract is the body’s important digestive system and the body’s largest detoxification organ, 75% of our body toxins are excreted through the intestine. In addition, the intestine is also the body’s largest immune organ, with 80% of immune cells located in the intestinal mucosa. At the same time, the intestine also determines our subconscious activities. There are 100 billion nerve cells in the intestine responsible for controlling human emotions such as serotonin, dopamine, and a variety of hormones that make people happy.
In simple terms, the intestine has a heavy responsibility for the health of the human body, and is responsible for digestion, detoxification, immunity and emotion regulation. Therefore, the intestine is called the second brain of the body. Even when our body is at rest, the intestine is still functioning for food digestion and nutrient absorption, as well as it coordinates with many important organs of the body.
Intestinal health is an important key to health and life expectancy, and supports activities of our life.
Therefore, having a good eating and living habit, regularly detoxifying the intestine, preventing early intestinal aging, is a good way to ensure having a healthy intestinal tract.
Intestinal structure and function
The human intestines include the small intestine, large intestine and rectum. The small intestine is responsible for a large amount of digestion and nutrient absorption. The large intestine mainly concentrates food debris to form feces, which is then excreted through the rectum and the anus. The adult’s intestinal tract has a total length of 5-6 meters. The inner cavity is covered with villi and microvilli. The total area can reach up to 200 square meters, which is equivalent to the area of a tennis court.
Why is clearing intestines and detoxification necessary
With the improvement of people’s living standards, the fineness of foods eaten increases and the crude fiber decreases. Together with the pressure of life and unhealthy work schedules, the problem of constipation becomes common, and colorectal cancer becomes the world’s second killer.
Colorectal cancer is divided into colon cancer and rectal cancer, which is one of the most common malignant tumors. Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in men and third most common cancer in women in the world. The causes of colorectal cancer can be genetic factors, viral infections, benign tumors, and other causes, daily diet is one of the main factors.
In one’s life span, the intestine must process up to 65 tons of food, which is equivalent to the weight of 12 elephants.
After the food taken being digested, a large amount of metabolic waste and harmful substances will be present in the feces. Every 1 gram of feces contains 30 million bacteria. If it cannot be excreted within 24 hours, it will breed more than 2 trillion bacteria and produce pathogenic toxic substances. Through intestinal epithelial cells, it enters the capillary wall of the blood vessels and is recycled into the blood system, causing the liver to overload and induce various diseases.
Constipation and stool residue are the sources of all diseases
Foreign health experts share: “People who indulge in diet, if they do not regularly clear feces from the body, their body will store large amounts of toxins.” The average adult has 3 to 25 kilograms of garbage in the body, and 1 to 15 kilograms of garbage can be removed from the large intestine. These garbage accumulate over many years, if not excreted, can form toxins and other toxic substances.
Constipation causes difficult defecation, resulting in the accumulation of toxins in the large intestine. It also causes excessive absorption of toxins and affect the functions of other organs in the body.
Therefore, regular intestinal cleansing such as removing dry feces and stool residue can restore the secretion function of the large intestine mucus, and can also promote the peristalsis of the large intestine, thereby restoring normal defecation, and at the same time discharging toxins and carcinogens, thereby effectively preventing the occurrence of colorectal cancer.
If you have long-term constipation, feces cannot be excreted on time, a large amount of toxin will accumulate and then absorbed by the body, resulting in gastrointestinal discomfort, bad breath, freckles and other symptoms, or even weakened body organ function, resistance decline, and eventually cause serious tumors and cancer disease.
Even if people defecate every day, there will still be stool residues accumulate in some parts of the intestinal wall. If it cannot be excreted in long-term, toxins will form and endanger intestinal and physical health.
The positive effect of eliminating intestinal toxins on the health of the body has been scientifically proven millions of times. Therefore, removing intestinal toxins and keeping the intestines clean are essential for health and longevity.
Clear first, then make up for absorption
As people’s living standards improve, the busy pace of life gives everyone no opportunity or time to supply the body with balanced nutrition from their daily diet. Therefore, health supplements have sprung up to meet the needs of people nowadays. However, do the health supplements eaten really supply the body with the nutrition it needs?
In fact, traditional Chinese medicine also emphasizes the health method of first cleaning, then adjusting and supplementing. Otherwise, even the best health supplements and nutrition will not be completely absorbed due to the accumulation of intestinal toxins, and even cause excessive overload of body organs. It is harmful to the body. Health experts also pointed out that only younger intestines can promote nutrient absorption.
Who needs intestinal cleansing and detoxification? If you have the following problems:
Constipation, obesity, chloasma, acne, bad breath, itchy skin, duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, insomnia, insanity, headache, irritability, etc.
