Benefits of Colonics
Of all the polite topics of conversation, the state of one's intestines is probably at the bottom of most people's lists. Let's face it: Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gas, diverticulitis and colon cancer are simply not things we like to discuss. And yet, as the old expression goes, death begins in the colon. Don't believe it? Ask any coroner. Autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material.
What is Colon Irrigation actually?
Colon irrigation, colon hydrotherapy, and colonics are all inter-changeable terms. Colon irrigation is the slow inflow of warm purified water into the large intestine or colon. The treatment is gentle and done in a professional manner. It is a method of cleaning out the bowel and restoring regular bowel habits. This helps to lead to a cleaner body through more efficient elimination of waste.
Exercise the Colon Muscles: The build-up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contractions) by which the colon naturally moves material.
Cleanse the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently removed in a series of treatments. Your colon can begin to co-operate again as it was intended.
Reshape the Colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape; that in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with massage of the colon, help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
What is the purpose of having a colonic? Waste material consisting of feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, etc. poses several problems when it sits in the colon for a long period. First, this material is quite toxic. These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired, or weak. Second, impacted materials impair the colon's ability to assimilate minerals and vitamins. And finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation, and results in many of the following disorders:
Excess weight Candida Albicans, Yeast
Impaired digestion Flatulence, gas, and bloating
Irritability, mood swings Recurring headaches
Food allergies Chronic constipation
Skin problems, rashes Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Frequent colds Protruding belly ("pooch")
Parasites Powerful food cravings
Bad breath & foul-smelling stool Frequent fatigue and low energy
Many health authorities believe that constipation is the number one affliction underlying every ailment. This means that constipation would be the most prevalent ailment affecting the civilized world. It is vital to stress that constipation affects the health of the colon upon which the health of the body, in its entirety, is affected as well!
If you experience one or more of these symptoms, then it is time to detoxify.
