Cleanse our colon, improve its health…not exactly the most exciting topic to read over our morning coffee is it? And yet it is a very important part of our health that needs to be addressed.
Our colon’s health or the lack thereof, directly affects the health of the entire body’s system! I’m reminded of this each time I start to feel icky! My allergies start acting up, my energy level goes down and I feel less than great.
Stop and think for a moment about what the function of your colon is. It works non-stop, 24/7 cleansing the food and waste from the body. Now, think about what you put in your mouth…it must come out somewhere.
Let’s look at why we must cleanse and care for our colon’s health.
Today’s world we live in is full of toxins. We eat, breathe and bathe in them. Toxins are also known as chemicals, pesticides, pollution and pharmaceutical drugs, anything foreign to our bodies. Processed foods are the mainstay of our diet, replacing fresh foods for the majority of the population.
Our bodies come equipped with a natural system for detoxifying itself, or cleansing itself. Our liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph glands and skin all work together to keep our systems safe from these toxic invaders.
Normal forms of elimination we recognize are sweating, urinating and bowel movements. Even though we constantly are eliminating waste, our bodies can’t keep up with the amount of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. This results in our bodies accumulating the toxins in high amounts.
Our internal organs are now working overtime. They are not able to perform their regularly assigned tasks at peak performance. This is how the build up of toxins occurs.
Symptoms of our systems being toxic are:
constipation or failure to have regular bowel movements daily
low energy or feeling sluggish
strong food cravings
high sugar consumption
Health benefits associated with cleansing…
There are many health benefits associated with cleansing on a regular basis.
Some of those benefits are:
improved digestion, better elimination, less gas, bloating and indigestion
ability to breathe deeper
less allergies, reactions to foods
less mucus and congestion, fewer colds and sniffles
more energy, better nutrient absorption, overall improved health
weight loss and desire to enjoy lighter style of eating
Cleansing is like changing the oil in your car…
Guys you probably will get this much quicker than us girls, but here goes anyway!
When you change the oil in your car the first thing you do is drain the old oil out.
Second you take out the old oil filter.
Next you put in a new filter before adding new clean oil for a smooth running car.
What happens if you don’t change the oil filter? The new oil will now run through a dirty filter and it will get dirty. Next your engine will not perform at peak capacity.
So what was the point of changing the oil?
Our bodies are the same way…
Think of all the food, drink and medicine we put in our energy machine each and every day, 365 days a year. Some of it is eliminated, but not all of it.
Some of the food remains undigested and is “sticky”. This is called plaque and sticks to the intestinal walls. Doctors now know that most degenerative disease starts in this toxic environment.
This is the main reason we all need to cleanse from the inside out. From our brain to our kidneys, our lungs to our liver…all need our help to rid our systems of toxic build up.
It was shocking to learn that my colon was responsible for so many parts of my health, be it good or bad.
I never noticed parasites passing during my cleanses. Later discovered that is normal, most parasites are microscopic.
However, my girlfriend, (I promised to not reveal her name) passed a 12″ tapeworm on her first cleanse. She said, “I don’t need to cleanse, I live in a clean home, I eat clean food and I don’t have parasites”. She now uses Botanacleanse Plus every quarter!
What amazed us both were the results…
we personally felt results from cleansing on a quarterly basis after learning these facts.
Some benefits I saw were: my allergies and skin cleared up, my asthma went away. The migraine headaches are a thing of the past and no more bronchitis or sinus infections.
These are just a few of the noticeable benefits of cleansing. They more than convinced me that cleansing from the inside out is a viable health choice.
I hope you found this tip as helpful as I did. Take charge and help your body run like a well oiled sports car, cleanse your body today.
To your health, enjoy and have an awesome week!

"Very well put. I've been with a health and nutrition company for over 26 years and I understand exactly what you are going through. I shiver to think what my health might be today at age 68 had I not stuck to my guns as far as practicing what I preach. Yes, I fall off the wagon regularly but my daily routine life reflects taking care of my health. That way I can keep up (somewhat) with my 7 grandchildren. You keep it up, Carla".
"For most people the thought of venturing out there in pursuit of your dreams, in a place outside of your comfort zones is just what stops them. But I could sense your excitement not resentment in going against the competition. In planting your stake and truly making a difference in the clients experience. That's ultimately what matters, the rest just falls so easily into place. Thanks for that reminder"!

Carla, I’ve got to say that I LOVE your focus on the joys and challenges facing women over 50. I’m definitely in that camp! I’ve been inspired by your candor, practical ideas, and refreshing determination to joyfully tackle life. The hours we’ve spent on the phone, in person, and through social media have enriched my life immeasurably. YOU are one Fiery Grandma, and I love your style!
I have known Carla Gardiner for 6+ years. We met at a business training for bring business online. She is a business women at heart and willing to do the hard things to make the results show up. I have watched her run a business, work a job and take care of her family. She is a go getter when it comes to putting in the work to build her business to the level of being able to enjoy her grand kids.
She is the example that age is not a limit it is a tool for sharing knowledge to those she empowers to use their own skills and talents. Excuses are fuel to push her to learn and apply. I have seen her scared to death about implementing new technology and rock it out despite the learning curve.
I love watching you grow into your greatness Carla! Don’t slow down.
"Carla, you are a model for me to follow. I love your site. And, I like what you have to say - very kind, very gracious. I have to say though that nothing in my life has ever been crystal clear".
"I've known Carla for 5+ years and can tell you that she has lived every bit of this and more. We shared tears and laughs and hard work....you will enjoy getting to know Carla."
