A colon cleansing is the process elimination of fecal accumulated of matter, mucus and sludge from the colon gently rinsing the colon with warm water. When these impurities can not be removed from the body, the colon tries to absorb toxins from them and be released into the bloodstream which in turn wreaks havoc throughout the body. This buildup can also substantially decrease the natural function of your intestine, since it obstructs the passage of time prohibiting it to function efficiently.
The colon allows vital nutrients to be absorbed more easily and leaves you feeling rejuvenated and healthy. It can also help re-tone and remodel the colon and promote regularity in the gut.
Benefits of Colon Cleansing
The colon (large / small intestine) is approximately 5 to 6 feet long and 1 inch in diameter. The intestine has a two ways wall and completes the digestive process, absorbing nutrients and water from digested food and receiving dead cells, tissues and waste toxins from the entire body. It acts as a sewage system for the body.
Our bodies are bombarded from all directions with substances that were not designed to process or eliminate such as air pollution, chemicals found in food, and industrial, beauty and household products. When we married our Western-style stress, alcohol, cigarettes, frequent exercise and an inadequate diet, the body is overloaded and can not properly remove the toxins. If toxins are not eliminated the result is self-poisoning, which is putrefaction in the intestine tract. Waste materials destined for a healthy outlet are reabsorbed into the bloodstream and redistributed throughout the body.
In a 30-45 minute session as much as 120 to 133 liters of filtered water is used to gently rinse the colon. Through proper use of massage, pressure points, reflexology and breathing techniques impurities are expelled from the system. The first stage of a colon irrigation session involves massage of the lower abdomen. This increases peristaltic action (contraction of the intestine) and helps to dislodge the stool. The massage will also indicate the current status of the colon.
What is improved with a colon cleansing
Conditions such as constipation, colitis, flatulence, bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, intestinal parasites and chronic diarrhea respond well to colon irrigation. General colon cleansing can also help with headaches, bad breath, skin problems (acne, eczema, and psoriasis), asthma, food allergies, fatigue and depression. The treatment is performed by a qualified therapist who specializes in colon hydrotherapy.
