The colon is the place where we store our waste material, which most of us don’t even think about – unless or until we experience digestive discomfort such as bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, etc.
The colon is a FIVE to SIX feet-long muscular tube with many natural pouches (called haustra), that is designed to contract and move our waste matter through and out of our body. Many factors affect the normal function of our colon, including lifestyle habits and environmental toxins. Modern diets full of processed food, harmful fats and sugar, plus lack of water intake, lack of exercise, fast-paced lifestyles, chronic stress or anxiety, and emotional issues all can contribute to poor colon function. Back-up in the colon leads to accumulation of toxic, congested waste that is not thoroughly eliminated as it ought to be. This toxic load could also result in the seepage of toxins through the bowel wall into the bloodstream (aka autointoxication). The latest estimates show that over 90% of diseases in North America are directly or indirectly contributed to by an unhealthy, congested colon. Cleansing the colon lightens the toxic load on every part of the body.
Colon Hydrotherapy, or a “Colonic” as it is commonly known, is a safe, gentle internal bath that helps to deep cleanse the colon of accumulated, congested waste, thereby allowing the entire body to return to a more normal, healthy state of well-being. A small amount of purified, body-temperature water is allowed to flow into the colon, softening the waste and stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to eliminate. This inflow of water and outflow of waste may be repeated over and over again. The removal of this congested waste encourages better colon function and elimination.
