Why Clean The Colon?
One of the greatest ironies of life is that to stay alive we are actually taking in the very toxins that could eventually kill us, unless they are effectively eliminated from our bodies.
Toxins enter our bodies through normal life-sustaining activities like breathing, eating and drinking. The vices of modern living – smoking, alcohol, junk and processed foods, saturated fats, lack of exercise and a stressful lifestyle effectively turns our bodies into human garbage dumps. Passive exposure to pollutants and chemicals can reach extremely dangerous levels as the years go by. These toxins when present in an unhealthy colon cause dysfunction, which can be responsible for numerous body imbalances.
An overload of these toxins often leads to chronic illness and pre-mature aging. Some of the ill-effects can even contribute to decreased immune function and hormonal dysfunction leading to a predisposition to cancer.
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store waste matter that we would rather not think about and most of us don’t until a problem arises.
Colonic Hydrotherapy aims to rehabilitate, hydration, and remove waste matter. By stimulating and strengthening peristalsis also promoting normal and regular bowel movements. It is a safe effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs or chemicals.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
Colonics are used to accomplish the following …
Cleansing the colon allows toxic material to be broken down so it can no longer harm the body. Debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning so by gently removing it, your colon will begin to cooperate as it is meant to.
Hydrating the colon with water encourages the breakdown of impacted and dehydrated faecal, mucoid and waste material that layer the walls of the intestine allowing improved elimination of waste matter.
In a real sense, colonic hydrotherapy is a rejuvenation treatment.
The gentle filling and emptying of the colon with warm water improves peristaltic movement, this is the muscular contraction by which the colon naturally moves material along. Therefore with the water moving forwards and backwards it is a gentle form of exercise stimulating the bowel wall keeping it healthy.
When any problems occur in the colon eg: constipation alters the shape, as the bowel gets fuller storing more waste matter. Peristalsis decreases, slowing the transit time allowing the food to putrify, which causes more problems like wind and bloating. The action of the colon filling and emptying with water, combined with the massage technique of your therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
The colon has reflex points that correspond to various organs, glands and other areas such as the eyes. Colonics will stimulate these reflex points thereby improving general wellbeing.
Benefits from colon hydrotherapy extend to all diagnostic procedures for evaluating the colon facilitating a more accurate study. Patients undergoing general anesthesia may benefit as it would dramatically reduce the problems associated with bowel functions following surgery.
Good Colon Maintenance
Since the majority of toxins enter the body through air, fluids and food, it makes good sense to be mindful of what we breathe, drink and eat.
A healthy lifestyle consisting of regular exercise, improving our diets by including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes and drinking plenty of purified water a day will help to keep those toxins at bay. With these simple measures, waste material will eliminated through the right channels.
