EarthBasic. Take care. Bless many.
Hello Beloved! This month we’ll take a bottom-up approach to health by focusing on the work of the colon and rectum. Over the next 3 weeks we will provide guidance for those who are grappling with a bad health report because all is not well down south. We hope that our March offering will be a blessing to you.
The colon “is the longest part of the large intestine” and functions to remove “water and some nutrients and electrolytes from partially digested food.” It is located between the small intestine and the anus. Whereas, the rectum is the part of the long intestine closest to the anus. Solid waste, also known as stool, moves from the colon into the rectum before exiting the anus. When cells in the colon or rectum grow out of control one has colorectal cancer. (https://www.cancer.gov/publications/dictionaries).
Do you have a family history of colon or rectal cancer, cancer or rectal polyps, stomach or bowel problems and or Crohn’s or colitis? There is a strong correlation between family history and your risk of getting colorectal cancer. Take some time to find out! This tool provided by Colorectal Cancer Alliance will help you record your family history-a benefit to you, and when updated and shared regularly, to future generations:
