The digestive system
The large intestine, also known as the colon, is a main part of the digestive tract, also including the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and rectum. Measuring roughly 1.8 meters in length, our colon's primary role is to eliminate waste, toxics and unwanted fecal matter. It also plays a crucial role in absorbing water and balancing electrolytes, along with the housing a complex microbiome that aims to prevent the growth of harmful pathogens, including bacteria, fungus and parasites.
When there is poor digestive function and improper elimination from the colon, we start to see re-absorption of toxic waste, resulting in metabolic stress on our body and contributing to illness and disease.
