Your colon is one of the key factors when trying to achieve good health, so it’s important to keep it clean. Doctors are now recommending colon hydrotherapy as an effective way to prepare for a colonoscopy, because it will get rid of waste and pathogens that are stuck to your intestines prior to the procedure.
Also, it is said that disease begins in your colon, and along with eating healthy food, getting a colonic is one of the best ways to keep your intestines – and the rest of your body – in great shape.
Colonics aren’t just for people preparing for a colonoscopy. There are many reasons people turn to colon hydrotherapy. Here are a few of the most common symptoms and diseases that colon hydrotherapy addresses:
Atonic (sluggish) colon
Colitis in remission
Constipation (a healthy colon will expel at least once a day)
Irritable bowel syndrome (i.e., mucus colitis)
Myalgic encephalomyelitis (i.e., ME, or chronic fatigue syndrome)
Skin problems (e.g., eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne)
Urinary urgency in females
Colon hydrotherapy often provides observable results soon after treatment. Patients frequently testify to fewer headaches, increased mental clarity, unblemished skin, and an enhancement to bowel function. Issues with the circulatory and immune systems, as well as general inflammation and weight problems, may also improve after a colonic. The treatment will allow the bowel to better absorb nutrients and will help the bowel resist absorption of enterotoxins.
1. Even with a bowel movement each day, the average person has between 7-10 pounds of old fecal matter encrusted in their colon.
2. The accumulation of waste on the walls of your colon creates the perfect breeding ground for parasites, yeast, bad bacteria, and viruses.
3. It’s estimated that the average person comes in contact with over 123 toxic chemicals each day from water, air, stress, food, and personal care products. This leads to blocked detoxification pathways and, as time goes on, toxins build up.
