The number one risk for colon cancer is age. Colon cancer has also become one of the most curable forms of cancer through improved screening and diagnostic techniques. If colon cancer is caught in its earliest stage, the rate of cure could be as high as ninety percent. Since colon cancer is also one of the most common forms of cancer, early diagnosis can save many lives.

Researchers are looking at the effects of curcumin (found in turmeric, a spice used in curries), resveratrol (found in red wine), ginger, and the Mediterranean diet on the development and growth of colon cancer. Many have found ginger to be particularly soothing to the digestive system, in both crystallized form and as ginger tea.

Meanwhile, we know that a diet rich in fibrous fruits and vegetables, whole grains, yogurt, and probiotic supplements help keep your colon cleansed naturally by allowing you to have regular, healthy bowel movements. Ideally, you should have a bowel movement after every meal.

Consult your doctor before pursuing any type of colon cleanse. Some people with preexisting colon problems may not be a good candidate for a colonic, but may benefit from a colon friendly diet. Also, some herbs affect the absorption rate of pharmaceutical medicines, so consult your pharmacist or doctor if you take prescription drugs regularly.

Keeping a healthy colon means avoiding red meat, animal fat, refined sugar and starches as much as possible. Remember, if you are eating healthy and exercising, an occasional cheeseburger isn t going to completely disrupt your digestive system. But a continuing diet of cheeseburgers will eventually cause your colon to store toxins longer than it is meant to store waste. When these toxins build up, they leach back into your body and start causing other health problems.

By keep your colon cleansed with a healthy diet, you can keep colon cancer at bay. If you feel you need further colon cleansing to jumpstart a healthy colon, try to follow a colon friendly diet as often as possible. This will keep you from having to go through another colon cleansing. Your colon will remain naturally clean because you will be passing healthy stools.

Colon cancer screenings and diagnostics have improved detection, but the best thing you can do is to try to keep your colon healthy for as long as possible. Colon cleansing can help you keep your colon healthy and prolong your life. Not only will you physically be healthier you will feel the difference. Who doesn t want to live a longer more active fulfilling life?
