More Experts on Colon Cleansing . . . part 9 of 9

Robyn Openshaw - Jul 26, 2008 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

Sir Arbuthnut Lane was a surgeon for the King of England and specialized in bowel issues. He removed parts of the colon and sewed the rest back together, and in the course of his practice, he noticed that many times, patients after surgery would have goiters or arthritis disappear, etc. Often, seemingly unrelated maladies improved after removing diseased sections of the colon.

He became so aware of how toxic digestive systems are linked to the other organs of the body that he spent the last 25 years of his life teaching people nutrition, rather than performing surgery. He said this:

“All maladies are due to the lack of certain food principles, such as mineral salts or vitamins, to the absence of the normal defenses of the body, such as the natural protective flora. When this occurs, toxic bacteria invade the lower alimentary canal, and the poisons thus generated pollute the bloodstream and gradually deteriorate and destroy every tissue, gland and organ of the body.”

If pictures speak a thousand words, look at the color photos in Bernard Jensen’s book. (You can also find this kind of thing googling on the internet.) They show rubbery material expelled from many colons during colemas (home colonics) and a cleansing program. Often, pieces are several feet long, the precise shape of specific parts of the bowel. It is hard as tire rubber, held up with tongs. Perhaps any modern doctor who insists this doesn’t happen in the human digestive tract has spent too much time prescribing drugs and not enough time actually studying the inside of that organ.

When Dr. Jensen attended National College in Chicago, they performed surgeries on 300 people. Patients’ histories said that 285 claimed they weren’t constipated, and 15 claimed they were. Autopsies showed the exact opposite: 285 were constipated (despite reports that they had up to 5-6 bowel movements a day), and in some of them, “the bowel walls were encrusted with material (in one case peanuts) which had been lodged there for a very long time,” and the bowels were up to 12 inches in diameter. Dr. Jensen concluded that the average patient does not know whether or not he is constipated. At a class I taught this week, one woman said, “I don’t have constipation: I have chronic diarrhea.” She seemed a little shocked when I told her that people with diarrhea are usually constipated, too. It’s not an either/or proposition.

Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who lived to 91, said that we should completely eliminate the residue of each meal 15 to 18 hours after eating it. He said 90% of modern diseases are due to colon problems. And what is the way to eliminate your risk of colon diseases? A high-fiber GreenSmoothieGirl diet rich in the natural anti-cancer compounds found in raw plant foods, of course. No chemotherapy, surgery, or even vitamin pill will ever be able to do what live compounds in real food can. A number of you during this blog series have wondered how you can cleanse totally, without spending the money. Just keep doing each step of your GreenSmoothieGirl program in a committed way, and you can experience miraculous results over a longer timespan!

And with those few more words from experts, my friends, is the end of this topic. Finally.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your 9-part elimination discourse. Wow … if people only knew half of this stuff, we could eliminate many of our modern diseases of affluence. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with us.

    It has opened up many doors for me in terms of reading material and changing some of my daily habits. Even though I have been very conscious for many years of what goes in, but not necessarily what comes out. I dont eat meat at all, and only occasionally have a piece of cheese. Otherwise I eat lots of fruit and veggies in smoothie form or raw living food.

    Thank you again. This is a huge, huge topic and oh, so important.

    We could “ELIMINATE” many of our modern diseases, you’re right. Double meaning intended. 😉

    Hi Robyn,

    Found the reading very eye-opening.I am one of those who say I’m not Constipated( I’ve had cronic diarreah for about 3 1/2 years now).Boy what a shock!Been a while since I’ve done a good colon cleanse looks like it over due.Question though how do we do the home colonics?I live out in the sticks and I haven’t been able to find a place close around here. Have a good time on your trip Robyn and family.-Sharon

    I thought this was great, so candid and open-I’m sure many of us appreciate (finally) a good frank discussion on a matter a lot of us don’t even talk to our doctor about! (it probably wouldn’t matter if we did, lol!)

  5. Robyn says:

    How you do the home colonics. You can use an enema bag and tip that you get at the health food store. Google “colema board” if you want the higher end (more thorough and more comfortable) experience, and you can read about it and buy one if you want.

    I think I finally found a way to convince my husband that this diet is right for him! I couldn’t use the whole “lose weight” philosophy since he wants to gain some weight. I couldn’t use the “happiness overflow” argument since he is already a happy guy. But whenever he uses the bathroom for #2, I know that he won’t be coming out anytime soon. Yesterday when he was using the bathroom, I think I read every blog on my blog list and got half way through a game of settlers of catan online. Sometimes he is in the bathroom for 30 minutes! It could have easily been that long the other day but I wasn’t counting. Ha ha I win! I win!

    What if you pass soft narrow faeces (during the cleanse) but cannot even get a pint of water in when doing the enema. It makes it impossible to get the coffee in. Any wisdom?
