The digestive system is one of the many organ systems of a human body. It helps to process the different nutrients, minerals, vitamins, fats, proteins, carbohydrates and water from the food and also helps to remove the waste material out of the body. Colon is a vital part of the digestive system. If a person neglects proper nutrition and proper health care and avoids regular colonoscopies, he is greatly increasing his chances of developing colon cancer especially after his 50's.

Colon cancer is the third most common form of cancer and the leading cause of cancer-related death. With more than 655,000 deaths worldwide every year, the dangers from colon cancer are eminent. If the cancer isn't diagnosed at the right time it grows and spreads through the colon to the lymph nodes, and gradually spreads to distant organs like the liver, lungs, brain etc. In 2007 over 52,000 people died from colon cancer in the U.S. alone. It is the third most common cancer in both men and women. It is ranked third for men after lung and prostate cancer and third for women after lung and breast cancer.

There are a number of ways a person can ensure a healthy lifestyle. We should take these precautions regardless of age in order to avoid colon cancer and other cancers and diseases. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle starts off with a balanced diet. You can determine the recommended amount of calories for yourself judging by your height, weight and size. It is our job to make sure we consume the right amount of calories in the healthiest way. We need to make sure that we have the right amount of protein, fiber and calcium, along with green vegetables like spinach and broccoli. We need to know which food contains the needed vitamins, minerals and nutrients that our diet requires. All this with a good multi-vitamin.

Another important precautionary measure is to have regular flushing of your digestive tract which of course includes the colon. There are different cleansing and detoxifying methods used to flush the digestive system. Herbal colon cleansing, taking added supplements, and enemas are few of the popular methods adopted by people to cleanse their stomachs. However many people are skeptical towards these treatments or methods. A simple way of flushing your system and regaining your energy levels is by having water.

The most natural and easy way of cleansing your system, and removing toxins is by having alkaline ionized water. Having eight glasses of 6 oz of alkaline ionized water helps our bodies to cleanse efficiently and thoroughly. We can obtain alkaline ionized water through a water ionizer. A water ionizer converts the tap water into electrically charged alkaline ionized water which is done by simply installing it on your kitchen faucet. Alkaline ionized water has anti-oxidants, a great health source for the body. Anti-oxidants help in the flushing process and help oxygen reach the cells and organs faster than any other water. This increases our overall energy levels and improves our bodily functions. Anti-oxidants are known to slow the aging process, prevent heart diseases, strokes and the free radical damage in the body. By having alkaline ionized water we are supplying our body with continuous anti-oxidants. We can also add a few table spoons of salt in alkaline ionized water and make a crude enema. Many dangerous toxins can be flushed out of our body by having a large glass of salted alkaline ionized water after skipping a meal. By following these simple and secure health tips, we can reduce our risk of developing colon cancer and other deadly diseases.
