Colon Irrigation

December 13, 2013

Detoxing the body has long been thought as an excellent way to improve overall health, wellness, agility, and even weight loss. Colon irrigation, also known as colon hydrotherapy, is one of the best forms of cleansing the body of harmful toxins.

Colon irrigation is a technique that has been around since the early days of Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt. Today, the equipment used to clean the colon of fecal matter is FDA approved. Likewise, those who carry out the procedures are certified and trained in order to provide a positive and healthy experience.

Naturopaths often recommend colon irrigation to remove the mucus that built up from undigested foods left in the intestinal tract. The toxins caused by this mucus can cause individuals to suffer from low energy, fatigue, and body aches and pains. Rather than treat the symptoms, a colon irrigation can help to treat the cause.

Another issue that is believed to be aided with colon hydroptherapy is that of difficult or infrequent bowel movements. Around one in five Australians experiences the unpleasant symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) , spending more than 400 million dollars on laxatives every year. It is thought that clearing the colon from toxins can also decrease the risk of developing colon cancer. This type of cancer is the second most fatal cancer in the country, killing over 100,000 each year.

When toxins are removed from the body, the entire system is greatly improved. Though abdominal issues are relieved, individuals can also experience an enhanced mental state. Most patients find that they are more alert and focused. Those suffering from depression often indicate an improved outlook. Similarly, colon cleansing can help with drug withdrawal, making addiction recovery shorter and more effective.

Some patients may have concerns about colonics. Some studies have shown that there is a potential for side effects such as nausea or bowel perforation. Patients should be not worry when they seek trained professionals for their colon irrigations. It is extremely rare for adverse effects to take place when colonics are performed with the proper equipment by certified therapists. Likewise, colon hydrotherapy rooms that are kept sterile greatly decrease the risk for introducing agents that could cause infection. In the United Kingdom, where colonics are much more commonplace than in America, there are virtually no cases of serious side effects from colonics. Coincidentally or not, the rate of colon cancer in the United Kingdom is much lower as well.
