Most of the detoxification programs are aimed at removingaccumulated toxins from the body and to bring it back to normal condition.Most of the problem in our body starts with irregular colon cleansing. If colon iscleansed regularly, then the growth of good bacteria and other microorganisms inour digestive system remain balanced. If colon cleansing is not proper, then itupsets the presence of a type of yeast called Candida. This type of yeast occursnaturally in our intestine and cohabits with other microorganisms. The growth ofthis yeast is usually kept under control by digestive friendly bacteria. But, whenthe presence of digestive friendly bacteria deteriorates, Candida yeast begins toproliferate and take control over all other microorganisms. In adverse situation,Candida can burrow holes in intestinal tract. The roots of Candida then act as apassage for toxins to enter the blood stream. People with Candida over growthbecome allergic to yeast itself. Some of the symptoms of Candida are: abdominalgas, frequent headaches, excessive fatigue, mood swings, acne, and hyperactiveand learning difficulties.Once toxins build up in our body, our overall body health gets affected very much.Toxin build up affects every cell in our body.

But in caseswhen the colon starts accumulating waste, the presence of healthy friendlybacteria in the digestive system reduces, which in turn proliferates Candidagrowth. Candida overgrowth results in toxins being released to the blood streamthrough its roots on the intestine walls. Some of the major symptoms are:lethargy, dizziness, reduction in concentration and learning ability.
