Understanding the Colon and Its Role in Your Health
Your digestive system is a ecosystem in itself. There are bacteria and yeasts that live in there in a balance that helps the body absorb all the nutrients. Those nutrients sustain all your body’s functions and give you energy throughout the day. Unfortunately, this balance is very fragile and it is often disrupted by certain factors. Contrary to many peoples beliefs and fade diets it is not about killing off anything but restoring balance that is the key to health…
The things that can imbalance your body are:
Over Sterile Conditions
All these factors can deteriorate and effect the health of your colon. They allow the level of good bacteria to drop. And when left untreated, all the harmful bacteria can break the protective barrier of the colon and release toxins in it (leaky gut).
Once the bad bacteria go through the protective barrier of the colon, they will affect the health of all the other organs too.
The digestive tract is home to about 450 bacteria and yeast species.
Here are some of the symptoms associated with a stressed colon:
Fatigue and brain fog
Agitation and anxiety
Blood in the stools
Why is colon health so important? And why is it not just a 2 week juice cleanse or magic pill to heal from it?
Colon health is important because an imbalance between the yeasts and the good bacteria can lead to a weak immune system and malnutrition. That can also cause autoimmune diseases like thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease.
When we start the long journey to detoxify our bodies through fasting and raw living foods, we start to take the pressure from the body and give it chance to heal itself, this takes time and consistaency to achieve.
Fortunately, there are quite a few doTERRA essential oils to support colon health along the way! They can be used along side a cellular detoxification plan and natural lifestyle…
One way or another, more than 80% of the people suffer from some kind of colon problem…even the ones who declare the don’t! Some have an unbalanced flora that can lead to infections. While others suffer from food sensitivity, which translates into food intolerance or allergies. Others its skin conditions or mental health or presenting with Autism ADHD symptoms.
If you are new to Essentail oils you can start with applying the oils below with fractionated coconut oil to the bottoms of the feet first. The bottoms of the feet are highly absorptive and a safe location for the application of any essential oil especially in children.
Then you can move to applying them to the abdomen in a clockwise motion with castor oil or coconut oil.
If you are not using daily or regular enemas or colonics, I would suggest to start as if you are removing harmful foods and adding detoxing practices… but you are not helping your body get rid of these toxins fats enough you can cause more issues and what we call re-toxing. So once you have built up a tolerance with your essential oils and using them regularly…you can start using them prior to the enema or colonic to encourage a comfortable release.
Another way if you don’t feel comfortable to do an enema or you can’t achieve this with children is to make your own essential oils suppositories. By using organic coconut oil in an ice cube tray, then adding between 2 to 5 drops of essential oils per cube (I’d suggest a silicone tray). Then inserting 1 as far up inside your anus as you can to allow the oils to penetrate in to your colon.
Here are my suggestions for the oils to benefit you condition:
THESE OILS CAN BE USED IN VEGGIE CAPSULE TO TO GET DIRECTLY INTO THE GUT TO..
DOSAGE – Applying 5-10 drops per litre of water you use….making sure it is stirred. I apply my oils to the last water that goes in so it stays in longer. Ask your colonic practitioner to add your oils just before the treatment finishes.
Using essential oils in your enema not only supports your colon health and healing journey, but it really make your shit smell like roses…or rosemary or ginger to hahah!
NOTE – add fears lemon juice if you are constipated or 1 tsp Bi- Carb powder if you are very loose in your stools. You can also add your herbal tincture or teas like Parasite M form Dr Morse to enemas to. I DO NOT RECOMMEND COFFEE ENEMAS they are far to stimulating unless you are in stage 4 cancer and need to heal faster.
How to do a enema:
-Add warm water to your enema bag or bucket then add your chosen supportive oils or herbs.
Hang your enema bag/bucket about 18 in. to 3 ft above your rectum. A good tool for this is too hang it from a shower or up high on a shelf.
-You should have a clamp on your enema the to slow the water up or down.I find downward dog or dolphin or putting my legs up on the edge of the bath suits me best, but some say lying on their sides or even lying flat works for them. A good starting portion is on your right side.
-Insert nozzle/colon tube tip into your anus, using a lubricant like coconut oil
-Inject solution into rectum slowly, and take as much as possible , refill bag as needed or until it becomes uncomfortable to take any more solution. Somedays you will be able to take more than others.
-Massage abdomen in counter-clockwise direction this will help the solution higher into the colon.
-When bag is empty or no more fluid can be taken remove nozzle/rectal tube
Lie on each side for 5 to 10 minutes, while massaging your abdomen.
Now you can move to the toilet and release the enema, continuing to massage your abdomen.
When expelling the enema:
-Massage abdomen in a clockwise direction this will help move the solution back toward the rectum and anus. This helps with expelling the enema water and helps move the solution and feces towards the rectum and out the anus.
NOTE: when doing enemas on kids use an iPad or favourite game to distract them lying them on their side on a towel, keeping them warm and calm and off cause ask their permission…we called them ‘tummy washes’ and used them daily when my children were extremely constipated and very toxic. Then place them on the toilet with books till they empty out. We use them now from time to time if they have virus or headaches or need an emotion realise.
When I resist doing an enema, I ask myself ‘what am I not prepared to let go of today?’
When I do an enema and the water comes straight out and I cannot hold it in ‘I wonder what I’m rigid and uptight about today?’
When I can hold 2 litres in with time to move around before releasing the water, I ask myself ‘how can I go deeper into healing today and shed more than I ever have?’
The lymphatic system play a huge part when it comes to the skin.
If you are struggling with skin problems understanding the cause of why you have this issue will help you heal from it. Acidosis is when the lymphatic system is backed up with acids in the body….thus the root of all obstructions that cause disease. This is created by having an acidic lymph system that has become stagnant and suppressed by these acids because the wastage got to full, creating a lot of metabolic waste and destruction in the human body.
The lymphatic system is the largest fluid in the human body. Dr Morse teaches that the blood fluid is the kitchen and the lymph fluid is the septic tank. He often says…Nobody poops in the kitchen right?
He is right… when the trash in the kitchen gets backed up it gets cleaned out and disposed. This is how the blood and lymphatic system work together the blood dumps any metabolic waste in the sewer system (the lymphatic system) every septic tank has a valve so you can drain the waste well so does the human body. The kidneys are the valves to drain this waste stored in the lymphatic system. When the kidneys get clogged up with mucus and acids then the septic tank gets to full. Then these acids will chew on every tissue, gland and organ in the human body. This will create a whirlwind of symptoms and if the kidneys don’t drain the acids they will come out through your skin YOUR WHITE FLAG OF YOUR BODY.You might have heard that your skin is a reflection of your insides….or that your skin is a tip of the ice burg below!
Which is why no amount of fancy products or expensive creams or topical steroid creams will fix an internal issue. You must drain the wastage from the body too allow it to heal….
A REAL LIVING FOODS LIFESTYLE will do that high in fruits, low in fats and some herbs and greens and support you.
Skin is your white flag 🏳 to your bodies health. ACNE, ROSACEA , ECZEMA, PSORIASIS, SPOTS, RASHES ect… No topical cream potion or lotion will address it unless you address the root cause.
SO WHAT IS THAT?
Acids in the body! An acidic body thus an inflamed body which then causes too much mucus to be produced which causes the lymphatic system to become backed up and ooze out of the skin bringing the acids with it (the clever body is trying to eliminate the build up of waste and toxins) THE SKIN IS YOUR LAGEST ELIMINATION ORGAN!! It is simply lifting out what’s trapped inside…
So you see a cream on the outside will NOT address the inside. Only proper stress management, cellular detoxification with fasting, herbs, essential oils and FRUITS will empty the body to allow the body to heal itself and return balance to allow you to be more mindful of what you put in again. Detoxification needs to be done but it doesn’t last forever you can return to a healthy balanced plant lifestyle afterwards BUT IT TAKES TIME 🥗
WHAT CAUSES ACIDS TO BUILD UP AND THUS CLOG THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
•Dairy from all animals even fermented kefirs and yogurts (big one)
•Eggs (big one)
•Meat and fish (big one)
•Oils like coconut, olive, sesame, peanut, macadamia, avocado ect (big one)
•Processed foods like flours and products made from them even GLUTEN FREE
•Grains and products made from them EVEN HOMEMADE ORGANIC
•Excess fats, nuts and seeds
•Beans and legumes
•A negative Mindset and overthinking
•Anger and especially trapped anger
•Lack of sleep
•Chemicals and toxins
•Poor food combinations
•Not removing waste from the intestines and lymphatic system
•Spices and vinegars
SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
•Transition to a plant only diet
•Decrease processed foods
•Remove oils and excess fats keeping them to 5-10% from natural whole fats like avocado
•Remove toxins and chemicals from your self care and home and environment
•Work on mindset and mindfulness and stress relief
•Work on trauma release and energy work
•Remove mucus and acid forming foods
•Build up to a cellular detox
•Connect to nature
•Move the body to pump your lymphatic system
•Introduce fasting slowly
NOTE: If your skin is getting worse on a raw food fruit based diet, it’s not the diet that’s causing the issue, but a systemic underlined issue being brought to the service. The fruits are stirring up these acids so that the body can eliminate them. TIME PATIENCE and FAITH BECAUSE the kidneys are so toxic and damaged from the mucus, pus and acid forming foods such as all processed food, beans, grains, dairy, meat and starches that it sometimes takes more then fruit and veg to get them cracked open so they can filter…that’s when homeopathy and herbs can help.
So why does the skin take a beating when eating such a healthy alkaline and hydrating foods? Fruits are proven to have the most nutrition out of any food we have access to and are the highest antioxidant content in foods sources. So aren’t antioxidants known to improve skin tone?
It’s a compromise lymphatic system that creates skin problems, but it’s not the skin having a reaction to the fruit, but it’s the acids coming out through the skin because of blocked channels such as the (kidneys) you get your kidneys to filter these acid waste out that are locked in a hardened lymphatic system (I no longer believe in food intolerances which implies we are reacting but shouldn’t be… just foods we should eat and foods that detox us, and “foods” that are not designed for us). When you get out this backed up sewage you will not experience the skin problems, head problems, nervous system problems and GI track related problems. Your skin is the largest eliminative organ in the human body. If you fail to get your Kidneys to filter you will experience skin related problems from the acids that have been locked in your body for decades. You’re not going to have pretty skin when sewage is being pulled from every orifice of the body and must come through the skin if not through the kidneys.
It’s very important to understand detoxification and know what to expect when you go on all fruit diet, especially coming off of standard western diet. Focus on the kidneys, and transition properly and you shouldn’t run into these problems.
All fruit diets should be enough to get the kidneys to filter so that you don’t run into these problems. However the level of kidney damage due to high protein and fats diets that we’ve been convinced are the right way to eat…have damage the kidneys in such a powerful way, that fruits alone cannot crack them open to filter these waste, despite the fact they are the most powerful and electrical high vibrational foods for moving obstructions. Thankfully we have the fruits to brake down these hardened acid obstructions that are chewing on are cells, organs, glands, tissues and blood, and we have (herbs, homeopathy and dry fasting) to open these plaque and damaged kidneys up so they can eliminate these waste, and pull them out. We then can go on, and experiences the life changing effects the fruits bring in are lives. Get your kidneys to filter, and stop blaming the underlined cause the fruits expose. Help your kidneys and get them to heal with fruits, herbs and dry fasting.
