Colon Health – The Key to a Vibrant Life by Norman W Walker

Within the span of 119 pages, Dr. Walker discusses the colon and the health of your body in great detail. He refers to the colon as the body’s sewage system, and that not cleaning it out on a regular basis is like “having the entire garbage collecting staff in your city go on strike for days on end!”

Most people may not understand that constipation is the number one affliction underlying every ailment attacking the human body. What goes into our body must come out in one form or another.

If it does not come out by normal means, it stagnates and toxins build up and therefore, are released back into the body resulting in disease. We then suffer from skin eruptions, fatigue, inflammation, congestion and perhaps die a painful death such as with cancer.

Utilizing charts and graphs to illustrate his points, Dr. Walker takes you on a tour of each organ and system of the body from head to toe. He explains how they function and then explains their connection to the health of the colon.

For example, did you know that the seemingly insignificant organ (or gland) known as the appendix actually plays an important role in coming to the body’s defence when waste material coming from the small intestine is potentially harmful to the welfare of the individual?

Other topics of interest addressed in this small paperback are hay fever, insomnia, fatigue, tinnitus, loss of hearing, diabetes, pleurisy, heart disease and numerous other afflictions. Dr. Walker’s advice is to cleanse your colon with a series of irrigations called colonics.

For the reader who is not familiar with the term colonics, it is a colon irrigation therapy which is administered by an operator trained and accustomed to this work. It can be very expensive and may not be available in your location.

Oh, and in case you did not get the point that periodic cleansing with colonics is truly the key to a vibrant life, you will be reminded of this at the end of each chapter.

Finally, who in their right mind would choose to have a colostomy (i.e. removal of sections of the colon and loss of normal function of the bowel) after his grim description of the devastating results of a neglected colon? Answer: God forbid, not me, if at all possible!
