The colon is basically the large intestine. It is a segmented tube within your abdomen and averages about four and a half feet long and two inches wide. The main role the colon plays in the function of your body is the absorption of water and the removal of waste products and toxins.
Over the years, especially if you have a poor diet, many toxins and other poisons become trapped inside your colon and this can become a haven for parasites. As the colon begins to clog up it becomes less effective at flushing out your system, which is harmful to your body.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is done by inserting a tube, which is known as a speculum into the anus. Warm, filtered water is then moved through the colon, filling the colon. The water is then evacuated, extracting fecal matter, toxins and other poisons that have been hardening and collecting along the walls of your colon.
How Colon Hydrotherapy Helps the Body
You may be suffering from one or more digestive ailments such as constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, gas, and peptic ulcers, Gastroesophageal Reflex Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Diverticulosis or Proctitis.
Many colon hydrotherapy professionals believe that this type of therapy can help aide and, sometimes, rid your body of these ailments. When the colon hydrotherapy treatment flushes out the fecal matter, parasites and other unwanted toxins in your system your colon should be able to work in a much more efficient manner, thus giving your body a fighting chance against these diseases.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
A healthy colon also helps the rest of your vital organs. Toxic poisons in the colon are usually produced as a consequence of bacterial action during the putrefaction of foods. Sometimes these foods do not travel swiftly enough through the colon due to a blockage or perhaps constipation. When toxins accumulate they could affect every vital organ and cell because the toxins may leak out through the walls of your colon. Colon hydrotherapy clears the blockage and prevents the toxins from spreading, which protects your other vital organs.
