Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colon cleansing, colon irrigation, or colonic hydrotherapy, is an easy and efficient way to gently cleanse the bowel of toxins and waste – thus promoting healthy bowel function, and ultimately paving the way to better health.
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.
The colon (or large intestine) is a tubular organ that works around the clock to absorb water from digested food and remove waste product from our bodies.
The colon contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body. When this bacteria and other waste material accumulates, the proportion of friendly bacteria to unfriendly bacteria is altered – disrupting the balance of microorganisms essential to our health and impairing normal colon function.
As a result, symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, weight gain, constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, or gastrointestinal pain may appear.
The benefits of colon cleansing
That’s where colonic hydrotherapy, which has a long list of transformational benefits, comes in.
Firstly, colonics improve whole-body wellbeing. Releasing toxins from the body is a rejuvenating experience, leaving us feeling light, refreshed, and energetic. By refocusing the energy usually used for forcing waste through the intestines, we are free to absorb vital nutrients.
Plus, this cleansing also helps our other organs (e.g. skin, lungs, and kidney), as well as our digestive system, to operate more effectively.
Not only that, but colonic hydrotherapy also aids our mental health and wellbeing. A toxic body weighs us down, and our mood responds accordingly. By releasing toxins, we are also able to release stress, increase our energy levels, and improve our concentration.
If you’re looking to lose weight, colonics can be a great kick-starter – plus, it decreases our risk of colon cancer and other issues, by releasing stagnant body waste.
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle method of rinsing the colon with warm water. During the session, a hygienist will painlessly insert a tube into the rectum while you lie on a table.
A large amount of water will then be gently pumped through the tube and into the colon. The fecal matter is then released in a reverse flow of water into the tube.
For maximum effectiveness, your abdominal area may also be massaged.
