Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
1. MAKES THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM MORE EFFECTIVE
As the colon is cleansed, it pushes waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. A clean colon from a colon detox allows waste to pass easily.
2. MAINTAINS REGULARITY AND PREVENTS CONSTIPATION
Constipation — especially when it’s chronic — causes a sluggish digestive response, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the likelihood of certain conditions and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
3. INCREASES ENERGY
Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating because it refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colon detoxification say they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep, and a boost in energy.
4. INCREASES THE BODY’S ABSORPTION OF VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS
A colon that’s been cleansed allows water, vitamins and nutrients to be better absorbed into the bloodstream, creating an open path for essential nutrients to filter into your body.
5. IMPROVES CONCENTRATION
Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose your concentration. The buildup of mucous and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships, and your overall wellbeing.
6. KICK-STARTS WEIGHT LOSS
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter. Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds Services_copy and can hold up to eight meals’ worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.
7. DECREASES RISK OF COLON CANCER
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe, and absorb through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. If they’re not removed from your organs as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes, the risk of polyps, cysts, cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
8. INCREASES FERTILITY
Colon cleansing, as well as increased fiber intake and healthy food choices, improves regularity and helps keep your weight under control. Fat is estrogen-based, and if too much is present, becoming pregnant becomes more difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain. Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. Many naturopaths recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing before attempting pregnancy.
9. MAINTAINS PH BALANCE IN THE BLOODSTREAM
Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming — particularly high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to general malaise in the body. The colon’s tissue eventually becomes inflamed, reducing its ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body’s pH will be thrown out of balance.
10. IMPROVES WHOLE-BODY WELL-BEING
Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to feelings of lightness, increased energy, and overall good health.
Although limited medical research is available, I can tell you no benefits” other than colonics can hydrate, lubricate, strengthen and reshape the colon. There are a multitude of testimonials from clients. Some find relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of constipation, IBS, allergies, chronic pain, gas and bloating and many others. Others report benefits of significant improvement of bowel movements, weight loss, a general sense of well being and an “Services_copy” feeling in the abdominal area.
By aiding in the removal of fecal material from the colon walls, bacteria and toxin levels are diluted and reduced. When the toxin level drops in the colon the vascular and lymphatic systems may release additional waste into the colon for further dilution and release.
Since today’s diet inevitably includes many toxins. Toxins tend to accumulate in the colon, and they also are flushed away with colon hydrotherapy. Most people comment immediately after the procedure that they feel lighter, and that that they have a feeling of energy and well-being. In addition, there are other benefits which you can’t see or feel, but which improve the way the body processes food wastes. For instance, beneficial bacteria, which produce vitamin K and part of the B complex, grow and function properly when they are not hampered by the debris of constipation. In addition, the muscles that move food waste through the colon are better able to perform their job when the colon is cleansed.
Let’s face it: we’ve all eaten and continue to eat foods that … well, just aren’t food at all. As well as living in an incredibly toxic environment with estimated over 80,000 toxins and chemicals in our air, food, water, and don’t forget all the toxic medications, pain killers and antibiotics.
When your body shows symptoms of toxicity such as low energy, acne, insomnia, headaches, constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea, joint pain, depression, weight gain, hemorrhoids, etc… you’ve got undigested matter trapped in your intestines and permeating into your bloodstream. AKA it’s time to eat better and purge your old mistakes (and occasional new ones … you’re only human!). It’s not easy, but let your fears go and leave it to a professional. Let the years of trapped waste matter go … also to a professional. Turn a new leaf. Leafy green vegetables that is.
