Colon Hydrotherapy AKA Colonic Irrigation
A gentle yet powerful cleansing technique
Colon hydrotherapy is a means of introducing clean, filtered water into the bowel (colon or large intestine). The process serves on the one hand to gently break up and remove built-up waste matter. Even more importantly, however, it can restore the proper functioning of the bowel: one of the body's most important organs, one that is usually overlooked and ignored.
About the bowel
The bowel is undoubtedly one of the most important parts of the human organism. A large muscular tube, bent into an approximately square shape and located in the abdomen, the bowel is responsible for the final removal from the body of waste products as faeces, in a process called defaecation.
Strictly speaking, the bowel is an organ of excretion rather than one of detoxification. Although the waste products of digestion voided by the bowel include toxins such as heavy metals, it's not the bowel that does the job of filtering and cleaning the blood of toxins. That's the role of specialised detox organs like the liver and kidneys. When the bowel is all tickety boo and functioning healthily, we feel great: full of energy and well being, ready to face the world and its challenges.
The underfunctioning bowel
It's easy for the bowel to become overwhelmed and inefficient when there's all that waste matter to deal with. A lack of fibre in the diet will produce stools that are hard, dry and difficult to pass. Not drinking enough water similarly causes constipation, with the added bonus of dehydration and its systemic negative effects. Too much processed grain products – white flour, cakes, pastries and the like – leads to an excess of mucous and dense, sticky stools. Insufficient exercise, taking certain prescription drugs, drinking too many caffeinated drinks – all of these factors and more can negatively impact bowel function. Just as important are emotional factors: stress and its alleviation has an enormously important role to play in bowel health.
The problems with impaired bowel function don't end there. An underfunctioning bowel can lead to autointoxication, where poisons are reabsorbed into the bloodstream from the colon. Headaches are one, unsurprising, result of autointoxication. Others include tiredness and fatigue, irritability, skin problems, arthritis and bad breath. Even system-wide metabolic dysregulation - type 2 diabetes, say - will benefit from having a fully functioning colon, not least because effective waste removal boosts all the other functions of digestion and nutrient uptake.
Feel the benefits
So why not book in and feel the benefits of a fully functioning bowel? Colon hydrotherapy is an excellent way to kickstart a new health regime, and is the perfect addition to any cleansing programme. Regular colonics are also an excellent way to maintain good health, not just of the bowel but of the entire body.
A first colonic, which includes a thorough case history, costs £90 and second and subsequent colonics cost £75. You can contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 07974 936742.
