Ayurvedic Medicines for Colon Cleansing

Colon Cleansing Herbal Cure-Natural treatment-Alternative Medicines

Importance of colon:

The large intestine governs the elimination of waste material from the body, the undigested portion of the food that we have taken in. as such it is perhaps the body's most important organ of elimination, removing waste matter from the entire digestive tract, including the left over bile and other digestive secretions.

However, the stool does serve a purpose in the large intestine. The bulk of the stool maintains the tone of the large intestine. It supports not only the digestive system but gives stability to the prana and mind as well. Without the proper amount of stool in the large intestine our energy easily gets imbalanced or erratic as Vata becomes aggravated.

In addition, the large intestine is an important organ of digestion and assimilation. Its membrane absorbs the energy and the nutrients that build up the bones and the deeper tissues of the marrow, nerve and reproductive. It takes in the prana or deeper vitality from our food that provides deeper reserves of strength and Ojas.

Our pattern of elimination shows the final product of our digestion. Proper management of colon is the foundation for treating the digestive system. For this reason, disorders of the large intestine are crucial in all digestive system disorders.
