Causes of Poor Digestion • Our bodies are not capable of eliminating all the different toxins and chemicals we inhale and ingest every day so they accumulate in our cells (particularly fat cells). • The remainder is stored in the body unless we cleanse our bodies and flush out all this toxic build up. This build-up could ultimately cause health problems. • Mucous build-up leaves behind a sticky glue-like substance that coats the walls of the colon and accumulates layer by layer forming a hard rubbery crust which hinders the colon’s ability to absorb vital nutrients our bodies need. Poor Digestion leads to autointoxication…
