The colon begins on your right hand side in or just above the groin, in the pelvis. The first pouch, which you will see on the left side of the picture and at the bottom of the ascending colon, is called the cecum. At the very center of the bottom of this pouch you will see the word pituitary. This means that the pituitary* gland (located in the brain) and this area of the colon have an electronic, vibratory relationship.

When an X ray of the colon shows this pouch to be in the form of a "V," illustrated in the sketch which accompanies this chapter, one can be sure that a group of worms has colonized in this particular location. I have usually found that these turn out to be tape worms. This affliction of the cecum pouch of the colon usually results in the development of a state of constant fatigue.

The pituitary* gland, as you will notice from the illustration, is composed of three general sections: the posterior lobe, also known as the pars nervosa, indicating its particular association with the nerve system of the body; the anterior lobe, also referred to as the pars glandularis or glandular part; and the medial lobe, which consists of a strip between the other two lobes.


The three lobes of the pituitary gland are directly affected by any serious disturbance in this region of the cecum. The posterior pituitary, having direct nerve connections with the brain, is involved in virtually every activity of the body, so that anything irregular in this location in the cecum has repercussions in many unsuspected ways.

Consider the temperature of the body, which the posterior pituitary in many ways controls. When the weather is hot, the pores of the skin open and allow perspiration to take place, while in cold weather the pores are closed to retain heat in the body and prevent evaporation. The posterior pituitary also involves the regulation of water in the system. The body is composed of between 75% and 80% distilled water which is essential for the flow of the lymph stream. This stream of water collects impurities throughout the body which eventually are passed both through the kidneys and into the colon. One type of cecum disturbance may cause excessive liquids in the colon, resulting in diarrhea, another may inhibit water from getting into the colon, causing constipation to be dry and painful. Thus, we have a close relationship between the posterior pituitary and the cecum. The anterior pituitary, on the other hand, is involved in the functions of the glands, generating hormones for the reproductive organs, the adrenal glands, the thyroid, the liver and for the pancreas.
