Bowel & Bladder –
What a lovely topic for this month’s Health By Systems: 101 class!
The sarcasm in ‘lovely’ is obvious, but there must be some way to approach the subject of elimination with appreciation rather than aversion.
The simple truth is two-fold:
1. What comes out at the end is as important as what goes in at the beginning!
2. What comes out at the end depends on what goes in at the beginning!
For those who might need a translation:
Your stools and the health of your colon and urinary tract
are as important as and depend upon your diet and nutrition.
Those simple truths will be discussed in class this month as well as the following related topics:
- Colon cleanses
- Toxic colon
- Chronic constipation
- Kidney stones
- Prostate health
- Urinary tract infections
Last month you learned about your liver as a vital organ for detoxing. This month you will learn the direct impact your colon has on your liver. You will learn how you can neutralize toxins, and consequently help your liver and your metabolism, by giving your colon what it needs (and it does not need fiber).
Your urinary system is also important for different reasons in the elimination picture. But your kidneys also play a huge role in blood pressure regulation, fluid retention and the balance of electrolytes and blood pHs. Most of us take urinating for granted until things go wrong. Men especially are concerned about their prostate gland, which if enlarged, can affect their urination.
Let’s talk about how to avoid chronic issues
in this important system.
Human elimination is certainly personal and private and many think it is unpleasant. However, it is just one more indication that our bodies are designed for balance and all of our bodily systems are interrelated and connected.
We are not bashful with this topic of bowel and bladder because it is so important! Where else are you going to be able to learn and talk about this human function from a natural health perspective?
