Modern Medicine has raised the human intestine to the category of “VIP”, close to the brain in importance, and that is because the gut, being the route through which we interact with our environment and over which we have control, is crucial to optimal health. The intestine speaks of the mind-body connection in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and “stomach butterflies”. It synthesizes 95% of our serotonin, a main brain protein to prevent depression and sugar cravings. The intestine forms vitamins, holds a considerable portion of the immune system, and is the main conduit of detoxification. When dysfunctional, it can produce malnutrition, depression, insomnia, weight problems and even social embarrassment.
It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of colon health in wellness of the whole individual. Research shows that colon health is reflected in skin health and energy levels. Even mood, emotional wellbeing and weight are largely influenced by colon health. This is because the colon manufactures around 90 percent of the body’s serotonin, a hormone that prevents depression and sugar cravings. Thus, compromised colon health can essentially make us sad and pudgy. Colon health is correlated with lower risk of cancer, improved assimilation of vitamins and minerals from food and improved synthesis of essential vitamins like K and B-12. Immunity is also largely dependent on colon health. Unfortunately, many Americans suffer from impaired colon health as a result of poor dietary choices, excess alcohol consumption, antibiotic drug use, and other environmental and genetic factors. The Wellness Institute of the Americas is committed to assessing patients’ colon health, providing comprehensive treatments to improve colon health, and prescribing a program for living that will enhance colon health and the overall wellness of the individual. Colon health and general gastrointestinal health are largely determined by microscopic agents fondly referred to as “gut bacteria.” The gut flora and fauna in a single colon or gastrointestinal tract number in the billions. Their population is so large and their role so integral to colon health and overall wellness, many refer to these gut bacteria as an organ unto themselves – the “forgotten organ,” according to some. When these gut bacteria are balanced, they work beautifully to maintain colon health and function.
As part of their contribution to colon health, they break down certain undigested food particles, produce essential vitamins, and control certain metabolic functions. When these gut bacteria are imbalanced, however, colon health is inherently compromised, and the “host” (read: you) suffers in a multitude of ways. The effects of unhealthy gut bacteria and poor colon health can include malnutrition, weight gain, impaired immunity, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome and excessive gas. The Wellness Institute runs diagnostic tests to assess colon health and prescribes a holistic action plan to restore healthy colon function. This colon health program may include changes to diet, intake of probiotic foods, probiotic supplements, colon cleanse (colonics), exercises aimed at promoting colon health, weight loss, diagnosis of food sensitivities or intolerances and assessment and management of stress. Colon health is absolutely essential to the health of the whole individual; The Wellness Institute can create a holistic plan that simultaneously improves colon health and promotes the overall wellness of the individual.
