What is a colon cleanse?
Colon cleansing, also known as colonic irrigation or colonic hydrotherapy, involves flushing the colon with fluids to remove waste. It’s a practice that’s been around since ancient times, and the benefits are based on the premise that digestive waste can be a toxin to the body.
Colonic hygienist performs the colon cleanse while you rest on a table. It involves sending approximately 60 liters of fluid through a tube into the rectum. Toxins are then expelled through a different tube, and the process is repeated.
Why Colon Therapy: Unhealthy modern lifestyles
Even with the best will in the world, few of us eat as healthily as we should, or take enough exercise. Unfortunately, our bodies simply aren’t designed for this sedentary lifestyle fuelled by processed and refined foods full of chemically synthesised ingredients. Inevitably, this upsets the natural way your digestive system works, leading to a range of negative effects on your health, from digestion and bowel problems, to lethargy and headaches.
How a colonic can help
Colon hydrotherapy works with your body, helping to return your digestive system to a more natural, healthy state. The gentle flow of water works in two ways: firstly it cleans out waste matter in the colon, and secondly it stimulates the natural nerve and muscle action of the bowels to encourage proper bowel function.
Unlike an enema, colon hydrotherapy, combined with gentle abdominal massage from your therapist, can reach the full length of the large intestine, ensuring a thorough cleanse and the maximum benefit.
Proven benefits of colonics:
Clearer skin & eyes
Relief from bloating and heaviness
Removing the waste material from the colon literally destroys the habitat for the harmful bacteria. Additionally, a clean colon still functions as a last resort for the digestion. The immune system gets strengthened so the body becomes more protected against various health conditions such as:
constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel, bloating, excessive gas, indigestion, allergies, candida overgrowth, skin problems, brittle nails and hair, abnormal body odour, unpleasant breath, backache, stiffness, arthritis, fatigue, insomnia, poor concentration, and headaches.
