More about the colon…
The large intestine consists of the colon and rectum. The main functions of the large intestine are the formation and elimination of waste, and the absorption of water and minerals.
The colon is a part of the body that is often overlooked, but its health (and the state of your intestines and digestive system generally) is a critical part of your general well-being.
A happy, healthy colon
A fully-functioning, healthy colon will usually rid the body of waste 2 to 3 times per day, depending on the number of meals eaten. It will also carry out the vital function of promptly removing harmful toxins and other waste materials from the body which, if allowed to remain, could give rise to a variety of health problems. For example, self-poisoning (the re-absorption of toxins and bacteria into the bloodstream), which is a common side-effect of chronic constipation and some other digestive system disorders.
There are a number of conditions that can affect the digestive tract, and the colon in particular. Once of the most common occurrences is bloating, which can cause mild discomfort (for example, after eating). There can also be changes in bowel movements (such as constipation or diarrhea), and excessive wind.
There is often more than one reason for these unpleasant symptoms; it varies from individual to individual. Things like stress, travel, illness and lack of exercise can all have an impact. However, diet is often a key factor (including food allergies and sensitivities).
Of course, many other health conditions can affect your bowels; any specific concerns should be discussed with a medical professional.
A well-balanced diet, filled with natural whole foods, is therefore often the first step in trying to stop bloating. In particular, this includes choosing foods that are full of natural, non-irritating dietary fibre: whole grains, fruit, vegetables, beans and seeds.
However, if you increase your fibre intake, don’t forget to drink more water too. Fibre absorbs water like a sponge and so, without increased water intake too, it can actually end up making constipation worse! Keeping hydrated is essential for a healthy and efficient digestive system.
