For many people, the bowels move maybe once a day. Now, if you eat three meals a day, and your bowels move maybe once a day… ( for some people having a bowel movement once every three days,is normal !!) where do you think all that waste matter sits. Right, it sits inside you, and tends to pollute ( to a greater or lesser degree ) the rest of your system. So, getting this long, twisting, digestive and elimination pipe, free of old debris, and emptying more frequently is the goal. The colon program does that. It stimulates and activates the squeezing action, and picks up and moves out the waste matters.
