Colon hydrotherapy, also sometimes called colonics, is an essential part of overall health and wellness.
Colon hydrotherapy is an age-old treatment practiced by early civilizations. The first version of the modern colonic equipment was developed around the turn of the 20th century.
The process involves the safe and delicate infusion of water into the colon via the rectum to expel residue, toxins, and mucous. No chemicals or drugs are used in a colon cleanse.
During a colon hydrotherapy procedure, a trained nurse/colon therapist gently inserts a disposable tube into the rectum using a machine known as a closed system. The system delivers warm filtered water at a controlled temperature and flow rate through a tube to slowly fill the colon.
Once filled, the flow of water is stopped to allow for contraction and release. The nurse/therapist also gives patients an abdominal massage to help ease into the procedure.
Many first-time patients naturally feel uneasy about the process but done professionally using a closed system, colon hydrotherapy cleanse eliminates odor, mess and the feeling of embarrassment.
Aside from relieving the symptoms of gastrointestinal problems like constipation or diarrhea, colon hydrotherapy aids in improving digestive health, especially for those who consume a lot of processed and refined food. Since the digestive system affects other body functions, regular colon hydrotherapy can help manage physical and mental fatigue, allergies, acne and headaches.
It can also help boost energy, improve circulation, provide relief from bloating and prevent stagnant toxins from getting through the colon wall and into the bloodstream.
When toxins are not flushed out and are absorbed into the bloodstream, they affect the body’s ability to properly metabolize food and provide the energy needed for the body to function. They can also trigger health issues like hypoglycemia, arthritis, constipation, difficulty losing weight, insomnia, skin problems and abnormal body odor, among others.
A healthy gut is not a fit habitat for harmful bacteria. Good bacteria, aka probiotics, are strongly attached to the colon walls and will not be affected by colon hydrotherapy cleanse. Probiotics affect nerves that control gut movement and are known to help treat irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea and inflammatory bowel disease. After a colon hydrotherapy procedure, patients will feel lighter, relieved and energized.
In the next days, other benefits will manifest including clearer skin and mental sharpness. For cancer patients, colon hydrotherapy can help strengthen the body so it can fight off and prevent further growth of cancer cells.
