If you watch daytime television, you’ve probably been bombarded with yogurt commercials and prescription drug ads talking about the importance of “regularity”. Why all the concern for daily bowel movements? One reason is that regular bowel movements can help prevent many bowel problems and is essential for a general feeling of wellness. In my practice, I find that cleansing the colon, especially through colon hydrotherapy, has several health benefits.
As a matter of fact, many health practitioners (including myself!) believe dis-ease actually begins in the colon and optimal wellness can be achieved when this organ is functioning properly.
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as Colonic Irrigation, has been used for centuries in varying forms to remove debris and toxic waste build-up from the large intestine – without the use of drugs. The results can help you feel better, live better, and improve your quality of life.
If you’ve been curious about trying colonics, I’ve listed the top 8 benefits of colon hydrotherapy that you may not know.
Increases Energy and Vitality. Eliminating toxins from your body with colon hydrotherapy can be rejuvenating in that it redirects the energy typically used through your intestines to other parts of your body. You can expect better circulation, improved sleep, and even a boost of energy!
Promotes regularity and prevents constipation and bloating. Constipation — especially when it’s chronic — causes a sluggish digestive system, which in turn leaves fecal matter in the body for longer periods of time. This increases the likelihood that toxins may be released into the bloodstream and also causes other illnesses and irritations, such as bloating, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins.
Improves concentration. Feeling Foggy? Inadequate vitamin absorption can lead to distraction and a loss of concentration. Cleansing the colon can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus, which can affect your work, your relationships, and your overall health.
Improve Digestion. As the colon is cleansed, it pushes undigested matter through your body, clearing the way for absorption of good nutrients. If waste remains in the body for too long, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and illness. A clean colon from a colonics treatment allows undigested waste to pass easily through your body.
Decreases risk of colon cancer. All the toxins you eat, drink, breathe, and absorb through your skin eventually are processed by your gastrointestinal system and liver. If they aren’t forced from your colon (and liver) as quickly as possible, they can negatively impact your body’s systems. By eliminating sluggish body waste, you reduce the causes and risks of cancerous growths, polyps, and cysts in your colon.
Skin Improvement. Did you know that a clear glowing complexion is a sign of a healthy colon? When you have toxic buildup in your body, it’s impossible to absorb nutrients. When you’re not absorbing the nutrients your body needs, this can lead to skin problems, including acne. If you want healthy glowing skin, detoxify with a colon cleanse!
Kick-start your metabolism. Foods low in fiber move through your digestive tract more slowly than high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to your intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of rotting fecal matter. Colon cleansing has the potential to not only kick-start your metabolism, but also can result in significant weight loss as your body expels waste that has been weighing you down.
Improves whole-body well-being. Ridding the colon of waste and toxins can lead to feelings of lightness, increased energy and strength, and overall good health. Give it a try and experience the benefits of colonics firsthand!
