Is Your Digestive System Clogged?
The intestinal tract needs a lot of water to break down the food you eat. If you don’t chew your food properly, it will take more effort to break it all down into useable nutrients. The process of liquefying food stuffs into dissolved nutrients is totally dependent on available water in the body. Dissolved nutrients are absorbed through the intestinal walls into the blood stream and transferred to the liver for processing. The leftovers that cannot be further broken down are moved along the intestines to be eliminated. The body compacts the remnants, withdrawing some of the water and pushes it down the chute.
The amount that the stool is compacted depends on the amount of available water in the body. If there is lots of available water, then the material remains soft and holds some of the water used to process it. This lubricates its passage and makes life a lot less complicated and a lot more comfortable. The last segments of the small intestine and all of the large intestine are controlled by water regulators which pull water from the leftovers that might be needed by the rest of the body. If water is in short supply, the instruction will come down the pipe to rescue and conserve as much water as possible. It will squeeze every drop of water from the leftover material as possible. It will slow down the movement of material through the intestines to allow for the reabsorption of as much water as possible. The body goes on a water conservation alert. One part of the body where water loss is prevented is the large intestine, through changing the consistency and the rate of flow of the excess material. This can make the material more compacted and more firm, even hard, making it difficult to eliminate. This is what is called constipation.
To prevent constipation or to clear it up, it seems that drinking more clean healthy water along with some extra fiber is an obvious solution. But you drink lots, you say. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean coffee, tea, sports drinks, carbonated anything, or even lattes. It means clean, non-chemical, alkaline, water, preferably ionized, highly oxygenated and mineralized.
When you are chronically constipated you become prone to all kinds of other conditions which can be extremely uncomfortable – diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, polyps and of course, the big “C.” The mucus lining dries as well causing material to stick to the intestinal walls, creating a breeding ground for parasites and bad bacteria. If your stool smells you are toxic and if you are struggling with constipation, you are dehydrated.
There is a valve between the small and the large intestine called the ileocecal valve. It is highly affected by the volume of body water. When water is in short supply, the valve can shut for periods of time to allow the small intestine to reabsorb water from its contents. Sometimes it can shut so tightly that there is pain around the area of the appendix where the valve is located. The pain can be distressing because it can present several possibilities of disease. Expensive procedures can be undertaken to get some answers when it is only water that the body needs.
Our ancestors drank river and stream water. It bubbled over the rocks gathering minerals and oxygen and the sun shone on it, filling it full of negative ions. Today, in remote areas of the world, long-lived pockets of society still drink this type of water today. They are healthy and strong well beyond most of the population. We can’t move to these remote places but we can drink similar healthy water. The Cerra Water pitcher makes that fresh mountain stream available to you anytime and you don’t have to hike to get it.
This water is called Cerra alkaline, anti-oxidant ionized water. If you want to improve your health you need to try this amazing water. You’ll get your life back and your pipes will work.
