2012, once I was home and well on my way to recovering from bowel surgery, I was struck by one
overwhelming question—what absorbs where? You see, after several years competing in endurance
sports, I knew that the primary role of my colon was the absorption of water and with that came key
minerals, particularly electrolytes. So, I obsessed. If I am missing my colon, will I always be deficient in electrolytes? And, if that was true, then what else should I be concerned about?
