How to end the nightmare of colorectal disorders before they end you

Chronic gut disorders terrorize Americans of all stripes like no other plague. Just consider the epidemiology of the four most prevalent conditions, courtesy of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases:

Nowhere is this epidemic as noticeable as inside any "big chain" drugstore. At our local pharmacy, for example, the laxative department is one of the largest single-condition section in the entire store:

So, ask yourself — how is it possible that the same proud country that was able to fly people to the moon and back home in 1969, can’t figure out 45+ years later how to prevent and resolve lifestyle-related colorectal disorders without resorting to a truckload of toxic laxatives?

The answer is simpler than you may think — American gastroenterologists, let alone rank-and-file family physicians, not only don’t know how to treat these conditions, but oftentimes cause even more harm by prescribing the wrong treatments and recommending inappropriate diets.

It is simply inconceivable that so many millions of people would suffer from lifestyle-related colorectal disorders if their doctors had a clue. With this in mind, please suspend your judgment for a while and study the following pages with as much effort and intensity as you would apply to finding a "good doctor" who may not exist:

How to Normalize Stools and Restore Natural Bowel Movements

Moving bowels is an intrinsic instinct, not an acquired trait. You don't need to teach newborns to move their bowels — it comes to them just as naturally as breathing or crying. Similarly, there are seniors who have never had a problem moving their bowels regularly, and are free from common colorectal disorders, such as enlarged hemorrhoids, diverticular disease, or incontinence. So, why, then, so many other people aren't as lucky? Read...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

This guide debunks the universally accepted view that the causes of irritable bowel syndrome are unknown, describes them one by one, and explains how to eliminate each one safely and permanently. This information is particularly important for persons in the high-risk group for ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and colon cancer because the conventional diagnostic and treatment of IBS raises these risks considerably.

Hemorrhoids and Anal Fissures: What Nature Giveth, Newton's Law Taketh

Hemorrhoidal disease and anal fissures start with a little "defect" in human anatomy — the anal canal that is too darn tight for large and/or hard stools to pass through. When these abnormal stools get stuck inside the colon or rectum, you may have no choice but to strain, and gradually causing yourself hemorrhoidal disease, anal fissures, and other complications. Read...

Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis

A high fiber diet is broadly recommended for the prevention of diverticular disease based on unconfirmed, unproven, untested, and speculative "theories" that a low fiber diet causes this pathology. In fact, it's the complete opposite — a high fiber diet is the primary cause of diverticular disease and related complications. Read...

Bulls' S..t in the China Shop

This 'in-your-face' title is wordplay on three concurrent ironies — health-conscious Americans falling for popular 'bull' about fiber, eating a bull-like diet, and suffering from bull-like stools, — the 'genesis' of practically all colorectal disorders. This page also explains why dietary fiber is the primary driving force behind the epidemics of autism, juvenile diabetes, and the omnipresent PMS. Read...

How to Revitalize Intestinal Flora

Healthy intestinal flora is vital for forming stools, maintaining immunity, synthesizing essential vitamins, and protecting the colon from cancer. The loss of these functions contributes to impaired immunity, diabetes, obesity, hair loss, eczema, seborrhea, anemia, internal bleeding, ulcers, strokes, cancers, and common gastrointestinal, respiratory, and autoimmune disorders. This page explains how to protect and revitalize intestinal flora. Read...

How to Restore Anorectal Sensitivity

To preserve life-long colorectal health and prevent colon cancer, a healthy person should move the bowels after each major meal, or at least twice daily. Because circumstances are rarely ideal, people tend to suppress urges and skip stools. Practiced long enough, this habit causes a gradual anorectal nerve damage. Finally, one day, laxatives are needed to initiate a bowel movement because the urge sensation has gone for good. If this describes you, this page will help you to restore anorectal sensitivity without resorting to laxatives. Read...

How to Overcome Fiber Dependence

Fiber bulks up stools. Enlarged stools transform colorectal organs and cause a physical dependence on fiber to move the bowels. Fiber dependence is similar to drugs, tobacco, or alcohol addiction: no fiber —no go... This page explains how to overcome fiber dependence without resorting to laxatives. It is essential for anyone who wants to reduce fiber consumption, and especially useful for people who wish to lose weight by following low-carbs diets. Read...

How to Prevent Colon Cancer

Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. This year alone over 50,000 Americans are expected to die from colon cancer. Most people may not realize it, but just like any other non-hereditary cancer, colon cancer is eminently preventable and avoidable, assuming you know what to do, and have the discipline to do it. This guide will help you along. Read...

Colonoscopy: Is it Worth the Risk?

Each year over 14 million Americans are getting screened for colon cancer. Of these, according to the report “Complications of Colonoscopy in an Integrated Health Care Delivery System” by the Annals of Internal Medicine [link], an estimated 70,000 (0.5%) may be killed or injured by colonoscopy-related complications. This figure is higher than the total number of annual deaths from colon cancer itself, 22% higher. Read...

Author's note

Not so long ago, adult diapers existed primarily in Saturday Night Live skits. Today, bowel incontinence affects up to 10 percent of adult men and up to 15 percent of adult women [link].

By any measure, these numbers are shocking. I looked up the 1972 edition of The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy—the world's leading medical reference—and couldn't find a single mention of the term “fecal incontinence” there. Two generations later, adult diapers occupy one of the largest sections in our neighborhood drugstore:

There is no shortage of "fashionable" leak-proof undergarments for both genders.

And as Americans grow older, the extent of this problem becomes even more shocking: “Two nursing home studies have identified a 45.0% to 47.0% prevalence of bowel incontinence among residents” [link].

If you plan to retire one day and would like to enjoy the spoils of your hard work and good luck, this site will help you getting there without wearing a diaper.
