Benefits of Colonic Hydrotherapy
A healthy, strong functioning colon is essential to maintaining good health. Your colon, together with the kidneys, lungs and skin are responsible for eliminating waste from the body. But over time, your colon may lose its ability to properly eliminate all waste from the large intestine especially in light of today’s toxic lifestyles which expose our bodies to processed diets, prescription drugs, pesticides, chemicals and stress.
If this happens, the colon may become saturated with harmful toxins. And through a process called ‘autointoxication’ … these toxic substances can be transported into the bloodstream where the lymphatic and circulatory systems, as well as the lungs, liver and kidneys, become overburdened and expose you to serious health risks.
Colon hydrotherapy has been used by many to aid in the promotion of health and wellness through:
* Cleanse the colon removing old, hardened accumulated waste
Breaks down toxic excrement so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Toxins built up over a long period are gently removed in a series of treatments. Your colon can begin to co-operate again as it was intended. In this sense, a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.
* Restoration of proper pH balance
* Stimulation of the immune system
90% of the immune system resides in the digestive track, by effectively eliminate harmful waste the immune system can function more efficiently.
* Enhanced nutrient absorption
* Supporting an environment that allows for good bacteria and flora to prosper
A healthy colon should have a ratio of 80% beneficial bacteria to 20% bad bacteria, however most people are walking around with the reverse ratio! One of the fastest ways to reverse an unhealthy bacterial ratio is to have colonics to remove the waste. Good bacteria will then have a healthy environment to recolonize since most of the bad bacteria has been safely washed out.
* Exercise the colon muscles leading to Increased peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity in the colon.
The build-up of toxins weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material. Having Colonics is like taking your colon to the gym.
* Reshape the colon to a return of normal, regular bowel movements.
When problem conditions exist in the colon through improper diet or constipation, they tend to alter its shape because the colon is a muscle and it will enlarge to the build up of toxins not being released. Everything we put in our mouth touches and affects the walls of the stomach, small intestine, and colon (large intestine). When these substances or their by-products are toxic, they damage the intestinal wall and cells, intoxicate the nerves and glands, and can be absorbed through the walls into the blood and lymph and ultimately to the cells and tissue.
As a result, peristalsis declines. The slower transit increases fermentation and putrefaction of undigested food by bacteria and yeast. The bacteria and yeast give off toxic wastes in the form of acids and gasses. These substances also cause inflammation and damage to the cells of the intestinal walls. Research indicates these substances can create abnormal behavior and abnormal brain behavior. The nervous system is directly affected. Elimination becomes incomplete and waste remains in the intestines. Dehydration and stagnation occur. This matrix creates erratic conditions in the body we call disease. The main dietary offenders are animal products, salt, sugar, flour, chemicals, and drugs. They are lifeless and give no energy to the digestive system.
The gentle action of the water, coupled with massage techniques of the colon therapist, help to eliminate bulging pockets of accumulated fecal matter and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
- Stimulated Reflex Points in the Colon
- The colon is connected to every system and organ in the body by reflex points. The colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way. Thus creating overall well-being and health in the body.
- Hydration of the Whole Body
- Water is absorbed into the body through the colon which increases the volume of blood. The circulation of the blood is increased, resulting in a greater bathing of the cells. This dilutes the toxins and flushes them out; relieving toxemia and uremia; and increasing elimination both through the kidneys, and the skin as well as the bowels. All this generally assists the cardiovascular and circulatory systems to be more efficient.
- Compression of neighboring organs disappears or attenuates when volume reduces in the colon. Relaxing effect on organs above intestines such as the liver, heart, and lungs. Sensation of lightness may be experienced.
- Reduces pressure in the intra-abdominal area which improves venous return from lower extremities and pelvic zone. Relaxes pressure on the hips and lumbar column and is beneficial to their mobility. Relaxes abdominal muscles from the action of water temperature and massage that accompany the colonic. Increases abdominal muscle tone due to reducing intestinal residues.
