I first became interested in natural healing and cleansing diets when I joined a gym and decided to do a full 360 and do the internal cleansing. What you read in Dr. Jensen's book could save your life, or at least open your eyes.
In a nutshell, Dr. Jensen states that many common health ailments (from diabetes to chronic pain) are aided and intensified by poor colon health. Poor diet, lack of fluid, and not eating enough of the right foods (and too much of the wrong ones) causes your colon to get blocked and can lead to a lifetime of health problems. What I learned was shocking, and it is beleived that most people have 10 pounds of impaced fecal material in them. Dr. Jensen's program for cleansing is meant to help clear it out, and promote an overall good state of health.
While I will not testify to the effectiveness of the program, I found the information helpful and fascinating. Dr. Jensen's program is easy for the average person to grasp, and it makes sense on so many levels. Most people are shy about discussing bowel care, but few realize how important it is. This book is essential reading, and I know it has helped me see things differently in the way I take care of myself.
One word of warning, though. This book contains 25 full color photos of actual cleansing discharge from Dr. Jensen's patients. This is absolutely stomach turning to look at, but keep in mind that the point of the book is not too sugar-coat the need for bowel care, so it is important that you see the plan in action. Just don't read the book while eating.
With the trend of healthy living on the rise, many people (myself included) are trying to break bad habits and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Bowel management never even entered my mind until I read Dr. Jensen's books, and seeing things now, I am glad I did. This is one of the best books on the subject, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Wow! This book is an eye opener. I'm saying this because most of us have never heard about the teachings in this book, although probably our grand-grandparents still knew it. The modern society and lifestyle made us neglect the laws of the Nature when taking care of our own body, to our own peril. Unfortunately, these days not even the doctors are aware of the importance of bowel care, even though until the 40's- 50's this was a well known fact. Probably after that the discovery of modern "cures" - such as antibiotics - and the growing power of pharmaceutical companies pushed these away from the medical agenda.
Dr, Jensen provides insights of the studies from the end of 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. At that time, it was a well known fact - in the medical community and probably elsewhere - that toxemia is the root of most diseases. As a matter of fact, Dr. Jensen says "The name of a disease is given depending on where the toxins are located". Most of the toxins enter our body through the digestive tract, together with our food and drinks. Then, if we have a poor diet, we have toxic wastes. If we don't eat healthy, the bowel transit time slows down, and the wastes, instead of being eliminated, stay there, putrefy further, and become a breeding ground for bad bacterias and other parasites. After a while, the body cannot stand it any more, and the toxins and parasites enter the bloodstream, and settle in inherent weak parts.
Sir W. Arbuthnot Lane, physician to the British Royal Family in the late nineteenth century and dawn of twentieth century was a master surgeon, and noticed in multiple occasions that operating the bowel cleared diseases located elsewhere in the body body. In his final 25 years of his life, he switched from practicing medicine to teaching nutrition and bowel care. This is only one example of what was well known in the 20's. BTW, did you know that the word "doctor" comes from Latin "docere", which means "to teach"? Unfortunately, this is not the case any more - doctors today are focused of treating instead of teaching patients to prevent diseases. I guess it makes much more sense financially.
Says Dr. Jensen, bowel is the king. It is the most important organ to care for. The bowel has very few nervous receptors - otherwise you would feel digestion and bowel moving food almost all day long. So, if you can feel you have a bowel problem, you can be dead sure that there is a serious problem!
Dr. Jensen provides some anatomy lessons about the digestive tract, about possible problems (constipation, diveticulitis, etc.), and the importance of chemical balance in the body - sodium (the carrier of many nutrients), potassium (muscle building), calcium (bones, teeth) - and how they are used by the body to neutralize some bad foods we are eating. But, after a while, the body exhausts the resources and disease starts to settle. The only way to get those is to eat healthy foods - processed as little as possible, preferably raw. For example, the body makes little use of table salt - it is inorganic and it is thrown away if you go over even a small quantity. Instead, the body needs organic salt - that is - the sodium which is part of the plants and animal tissues - that one can be easily assimilated.
In a later chapter, Dr. Jensen explains his biggest discovery: he learn why the bowel is so important, and why parts of the bowel are associated with specific organs. That way, he was able to explain what he had learned from his teachers and he had observed on his own pacients. Basically, he studied the development of the human embryo, and learned that the bowel appears very early, and that specific organs develop from tissue which was initially bowel wall!
The book continues with presenting his "Ultimate Tissue Cleansing Program" - which is something you must consider very seriously. Then, he presents a 7 weeks (tissue) building and replacement program, to be used right after the cleansing program. He even presents menu suggestions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. BTW, the modern toilet is not good at all for our health, instead, the "natural" position - still used by most of the world - helps most with bowel care.
Dr. Jensen presents six nutritional sins of the modern civilization and nine dietary laws to follow. For example, did you know pasteurized milk is very bad four your health, let alone ultra-pasteurized? Homogenized milk is even less healthy ! There were experiments and hidden - now pushed away by affected companies - that show the milk is only good raw! To quote Dr. Jensen, "In other words, pasteurization is a way of letting farms get by with reduced standards of cleanliness".
The author presents us his Health and Harmony Food Regimen - which is a balanced diet to be used on a continuous basis, and is really very balanced and healthy.
Not least, the book ends with amazing pictures showing the incredible eliminations from his patients' bowels - some of the feet-long and rubber-hard, and how diseases (ulcerations, arthritis, psoriasis) treated by following his program
Buy this book and practice from it, you'll thank yourself for the years to come!

I read this book about 10 years ago, I couldn't do the enemas I was too squimish. But I did do an herbal cleanse and Dr Jensen was right on the money! Yep, I've seen it with my own eyes in my own toilet--the black shriveled up plaque. I was so excited when I saw that stuff cause I knew it was in there, somewhere. I lost weight from doing this, lost all my acne, on face and back and had tons of energy. I'm now doing it again, 10 years later.
One of the most important things you should also do is a parasite cleanse. I was doing an herbal one and couldn't believe what was inside my intenstins. Tape worms!!!! there were 100s and 100s of pieces of tape worms in the toilet. When I saw that i screamed and jumped to the other side of the bathroom. Talk about freaky!

After doing the colon cleanse he recommends, I found that I DID have lots of rotting stuff in my body! After 3 days of fasting, stuff was still coming out. You can't tell me that was just normal bowel movements. Some of it looked exactly like what is shown in the pictures in the book. It was obvious that it had been in my colon for a long time.
Great book for those who are willing to try something other than just the traditional medical route of healing. Medicine can be helpful, especially for symptoms, but this type of treatment addresses the cause of disease, and can have longer lasting effects. It does take a tremendous amount of effort, but the results are amazing.
From my own research, I have found colon cleansing to be safe, when a few simple precautions are followed...the tube should not go in more than 3 inches, as Dr. Jensen mentions in his book, and you should be careful not to put too much water in at once to avoid over-stretching the colon. I would recommend consulting a liscensed colon hydrotherapist for advice before trying it yourself, just to be totally safe. There are some health conditions which make it dangerous.
