Colorectal Cancer

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.  Over 50,000 people die from Colorectal Cancer, which is the second leading cancer causing death in the United States.  Over 90% of Colorectal Cancer cases occur in individuals who are over fifty.  The National guidelines recommend that both men and women over 50 should be screened for Colorectal Cancer by a Colonoscopy.  Those with family histories of Colon Cancer should be tested before the age of 40.

There are 2 major benefits to early screening.  One, if precancerous polyps are found in your colon, they can be removed before turning into a cancer.  Second, screening can find a cancer early so treatment can be implemented. Symptoms of Colon Cancer are: blood in your stools, stomach pain, aches, or cramps that don't go away and unexplained weight loss.

As we mentioned earlier, prevention is your key.  By incorporating a healthy lifestyle, you can assist in the prevention of Colorectal Cancer and other forms of this illness.  A diet high in green, leafy vegetables, fruits, low sugar, close to no red meat, and minimal alcohol will assist your body in functioning at its highest cellular level.  Cancer will not grow when sugar is removed from your diet.  Inflammation or lack of oxygen will also discourage cancer's growth.  By cutting off this supply, we can hopefully ward off this disease.

Along with a good diet and exercise program, detoxing your body on a semi-annual basis is a primary key to having good health.  We recommend colonics during the cleansing process.  Your body works like a well-oiled machine.  If the fluids back up, your machine will not function properly.  It is the same with Colonics.  By cleaning out your colon, we remove built up waste and toxins from your system, which will allow your Liver to function at an optimum level.  We strongly suggest receiving a colonic 1 day prior to a Colonoscopy.  You still need to complete the prep, but it helps you in your colon cleaning process.
