Benefits of Colon HydrotherapyJan 31, 2024 09:31AM ● By Clarissa Stewart, LMT, CLT, RYT
Colon hydrotherapy is an effective way to naturally remove waste from the large intestine (colon) without the use of drugs or supplements. This therapy is sometimes referred to as colonics or colon cleansing. Colon hydrotherapy is completed through the gentle process of slowly infusing pressure regulated, triple-purified warm water into the colon for the purpose of cleansing. The process (through a series of sessions) is designed to cleanse the entire large intestine, assists in rebuilding a healthy intestinal environment and encourages better colon function.
A healthy, strong and functioning colon is essential for maintaining good health. The colon, together with the kidneys, lungs, liver and skin, are responsible for eliminating waste from the body. Over time, the colon can lose its ability to properly eliminate all waste from the large intestine. There are various considerations such as processed diets, prescription drugs, pesticides, chemicals and stress which can saturate the colon with potentially harmful toxins. If not thoroughly eliminated, these can be transported into the bloodstream, where the lymphatic and circulatory systems can become overburdened and increase the potential of serious health risks.
Colon hydrotherapy does not deplete the body of nutrients and minerals. It cleanses the colon of both good and bad bacteria so that balanced intestinal flora can be restored. It is important to recolonize the colon with good bacteria following a colon hydrotherapy session by using a probiotic.
Colon hydrotherapy is not for everyone, nor is it promoted to treat, cure, diagnose or prevent any disease or ailment, because these statements have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Before conducting any new heath treatment, consult a physician.
