Deepak Chopra’s Weekly Health Tip

While most of us don’t spend much time thinking about our colon, it plays a vital role in our health, balance, and energy levels. Everything we ingest, is eventually processed in our colon, which is exposed to all the indigestible toxins that are left after we have absorbed everything that is nourishing.  After many years of exposure, these toxins can contribute to the development of various digestive illnesses, including colon cancer.

For this reason, medical experts recommend that  anyone who is 50 or older receive regular colorectal cancer screening.  A colonoscopy is an extremely effective test that can detect a cancer in its early stages, before it begins to spread. The benefits of the test far outweigh the temporary discomfort of the screening.

I invite you to learn more about preventing colon cancer and find out about  the process and benefits of screening by watching this new video on VisualMD.com
