Dr. N.W. Walker used to say that “ Health and Sickness both have their roots in the Colon.” Living a civilized life means an artificial life. Civilized people, living in a civilized manner and eating civilized foods, cannot, in the very nature of things have a truly healthy colon. With our modern and more sedentary life, most of us are not getting enough exercise. We strive to eat healthily while still enjoying life, so we tend to make some bad choices along the way.
Our bodies can't truly eliminate the chemicals we accumulate from our food, skincare, cleaning products, and environment as there are more chemicals released into our society today than ever before. The chemically synthesized foods we eat daily leave their remnants in the lymphatic system, our tissues and colon. Over time the buildup leads to a range of symptoms we don’t think are related but they are. Colon hydrotherapy or Colonics aid our body in releasing some of the toxic load. Did you know the water that makes your blood comes from your colon and is cleaned by your spleen and liver before making clean blood? The more waste sitting in our colons the dirtier the water.
Colonics do four things:
- Hydrate the colon as we don’t drink and/or absorb enough water into our system.
- Activate the Colon by stimulating peristalsis (the wavelike movement that pushes waste out)
- Evacuate the contents that have been loosened up in the colon to be released as stool.
- A gentle abdominal massage or various techniques are used to help carry the water further into the colon to the beginning(anus-cecum).
Colon Hydrotherapy benefits go way beyond the colon. They aid with the clarity of the brain, brighter more glowing skin, acne, other skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, brighter eyes, improves vision, reduction of symptoms of headaches, nausea, bloating, reduce the Candida bacterial load, more organic energy, a pep in your step, mental and physical sluggishness. The majority of our lymph lies in our colon so by getting colonics, you are able to also clear out stagnant dirty lymph faster than the normal 24 hours it would take for the kidneys to dump it and that’s only if you have sufficient water (10 glasses) daily. I find colon hydrotherapy also helps reset your mind to live a healthier lifestyle and diet. Let colon hydrotherapy help make you internally fit.
