Mucoid Plaque in the Colon
Our standard diet consists of
many mucus-forming foods
that may clog up the colon
What is Mucus in the Colon?
Excess Mucoid Plaque in the colon may hinder the body in its important function to absorb nutrients and
remove metabolic toxins and waste optimally. Mucous is old waste material that has not been excreted routinely
through bowel movements. It consists of food residue and mucosa (a lubricate, gel-like
secrete produced by the glands in the alimentary tract).
Mucoid plaque builds up slowly over years without showing any signs of serious problems. Many of us have excess
mucus stuck in our bowel and do not know it.
It is estimated that an average adult holds
between 5 - 20 pounds of undigested food in the body.
Faecal matter that is not regularly removed starts to putrify and harden. It cloggs up the inner walls making
the passage for food narrower.
A healthy GI (Gastrointestinal) tract is covered with only a very thin layer of mucosa.
It helps to digest food and protects the alimentary channel from damage. So, when you eat,
mucosa lubricates the food and makes it smooth for shifting down the tract.
What causes Mucoid Plaque?
It does not appear over night! It builds up over time. The leading cause is said to be because
of “bad” food choices. Most of our everyday diet consists mainly of so called mucus forming food. Such
food is difficult for the body to digest.
On top of the list for mucus producing food are dairy products, soy and eggs, white flour (bread and pasta),
processed meat like burgers, and in addition, any processed food, drinks and products that contain additives and
The problem begins when eating a lot of these food without sufficient fresh vegetables and fruits. A good example
for that is a Cheese- or Hamburger. All ingredients are mucus-forming (except salad if added). If you eat lots of
burgers and chips without plenty of fibre it is likely that your colon is clogged up.
Digestion begins in the mouth! Eating in a hurry is an other contributor and even more so, if combined with mucous
producing food. Improper chewing means the food is not enough prepared for further digestion. Stress causes tension
in the bowel which blocks the natural peristalsis and leads to constipation.
Inadequate body activities may cause the colon to become sluggish. This is notably the case for people who work in
offices and do not do much exercise.
When you do a thorough Colon Detox you may be surprised by how much old hardened faecal matter comes out. Toxic mucus,
that has been lodged up for years in the pockets of the colon wall looks different from normal excrement, usually
it is a sticky dark brown or blackish material.
Excess mucous and health
A congested bowel may not absorb nutrients efficiently to eliminate metabolic waste and toxins from within
the organism. That means, even if you take enough vitamins and minerals you may suffer from mal-nourishment.
Metabolic toxins which are not excreted properly circulate back into the system, overloading it and eventually
Mucus Plaque provides ideal conditions for harmful yeast, parasites and bacteria to grow resulting in a toxic
and unhealthy bowel flora which is a further burden to the body.
Mucoid plaque hinders the colon in its important function to assimilate
nutrients and remove waste optimally. It weakens the whole body making it more vulnerable to diseases. For good health
it is important maintain the colon and prevent a build up of mucus.
