The normal intestinal flora will NOT be disturbed. One of the functions of the first half of the Colon is to gather the Intestinal Flora needed for the Colon. When the accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to Fecal Encrustation, it is difficult for the Colon to function normally and the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary Intestinal Flora. The resulting lack of lubrication intensifies a state of constipation and generates Toxemia. This upsets the normal Acid-Alkaline balance and the growth of the Friendly Bacteria is stunted. Cleansing the Colon will help bring the Acid-Alkaline ratio back into balance. In this environment, the Friendly Bacteria will again thrive and disease causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop.
