Picture this…

You round the bend of the interstate doing a nice, easy 65 mph and suddenly find yourself slamming on your brakes and screeching to a stop, almost rear–ending a pick–up truck.

Horns are honking and the highway looks like a gigantic parking lot, with stopped cars stretching as far as the eye can see.

It’s the mother of all traffic jams. You’re already running late for work.

To make matters worse, it’s summer. Heat is radiating from the road in waves. And your well–meaning spouse forgot to take the car in to have the air conditioning fixed.

So, you just sit there with the windows open, breathing in the clouds of exhaust pouring out of the ancient pick–up in front of you, and wondering if you’ll need to drop by the hospital to check for carbon monoxide poisoning on the way in to work.

Been there?

Exhaust fumes on the highway are just one way you get toxins into your body. In fact, you’re probably loaded with toxins, maybe even from the day you were born.

Toxins are in just about everything you come into contact with. They enter your body through the air you breathe, the water you drink, the food you eat and even through your skin.

Yes, you’ll even find toxins in the beautiful, fresh–looking produce in your local grocery store. Today’s fruits and vegetables are sprayed with pesticides that come from the same family of chemicals used for nerve gas in WWII!

Your body wasn’t designed to flush out countless man–made chemicals, toxins and pollutants. So, it needs your help to cleanse itself. By getting rid of the toxins in your body, you can help support your immune system… clear your mind… balance your hormones… boost your energy… and live a healthier life.

Toxins are everywhere in your body. The best place to start getting rid of them is in your colon.

Why? Because when your colon doesn’t work right, it can have a snowball effect on the health of your entire body.

Just think about it. All the food you eat eventually ends up in your colon. Your body absorbs the nutrients it needs for good health and eliminates the waste. At least, that’s the way it’s supposed to work.

But the modern low–fat and junk food diet most Americans eat can wreak havoc on a digestive system. Your large intestine gets barraged by toxins, so it cranks out extra mucous to protect itself. This gunk then sticks to the waste byproducts and builds up, narrowing your colon.

This build–up makes your colon work less efficiently and slows down the time it takes to rid your colon of fecal matter.

It can get so bad that you could easily have 10–20 pounds of putrefying waste and toxins in your colon at any time!

This can leave you feeling bloated, constipated, fatigued and just plain terrible.

The good news is there are natural steps you can take to help put your colon back in balance and restore healthy bowel function—so you can start feeling better.

One of the best ways to do this is with a colon cleanse that reduces the level of toxins in your digestive system and helps you maintain regular, healthier bowel movements.

There are many natural ways to safely cleanse your colon. Here are three herbs that I recommend:

  • Cascara Sagrada—This plant extract helps stimulate the muscles of your colon to contract and push waste out of your body. It also helps strengthen and tone your colon, so bowel function can return to normal.
  • Slippery Elm Bark—This herbs acts as an “internal soother.” It absorbs toxins that can cause intestinal imbalance. Plus, it helps stabilize gastritis, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and even hemorrhoids.
  • Peppermint Leaf Extract—This is one of nature’s oldest and best–tasting natural herbs. Studies have shown that it shortens the time food spends in your stomach—and it helps you digest food before it goes into the intestines and colon.

You can find all of these natural herbs in your local health food store. They also come in premixed blends.

My colleague Layne Lowery, president of Health Resources™, has a unique solution that contains all of the natural herbs listed above. It helps promote regular bowel movements, so you can enjoy optimal colon health.
