The colon plays an important role in the body’s overall function as it flushes harmful wastes produced by the body. It is the body’s sewerage system responsible for keeping the body clean and orderly. Common sense would tell that an improperly kept sewerage system could cause great problems with any home, building, or city. The same is true with the body; an improperly kept colon could cause great problems such as diseases.
A colon with toxic buildup can cause many problems such as malnutrition, food intolerance, and overall ill health. The colon serves a vital function of the body in removing harmful wastes. When the colon does not work well due to imbalanced diet, drugs, stress, chemicals, parasites, plus other harmful substances, it produces mucus to protect itself. This mucus can then combine with the existing sludge of digested food causing buildups in the bowel’s walls, making the lumen narrower and therefore hindering the proper absorption of important nutrients.
The gluey layer of mucus and sludge build up causes feces to harden resulting into a venue which is productive for the overproduction of harmful bacteria and organisms. The usual bowel movement and even extreme elimination due to diarrhea does not eliminate this problem. Stools may pass through the colon but dirty residue may still be left along the walls. In such cases of build up, it is important to detoxify the colon so that these harmful substances can be eradicated from the body, preventing further problems to happen.

The colon can also be detoxified using medication, particularly laxatives. People having trouble eliminating, or those who just want to be able to excrete toxins from their colon, may be prescribed with drugs that cause the immediate excretion of wastes in the colon. There are several medications used for this purpose, some are medical-grade while others are homeopathic remedies using herbs.
