What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colonics, also known as colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy, are used to flush out large portions of the bowel system.
The large intestine is about 5 feet (1.5 meters) long. If you stretched out your large intestine, it would be about as long as the width of a queen size bed. The colon is the longest portion of your large intestine.
The other parts: the cecum, rectum, and anus are all much shorter, only a few inches in length at the most.
The large intestine also has a larger diameter than the small intestine. It’s about 3 inches (around 7.6 centimeters) wide.
What is a colonic? Is it beneficial?
Colon Cleanses are proven to be a more effective method used as preparation for procedures such as colonoscopies. Our colons could store anywhere from 10-15 lbs of waste per foot. Hence, it is important to cleanse our colon regularly to avoid excessive build-up.
Though many may not be familiar with the procedure, colon hydrotherapy has been practiced for hundreds of years and for good reason. Most importantly, colon hydrotherapy improves your overall health and wellness!
If you've been on the fence about this procedure or would like to learn why it may be beneficial to your health, here are 9 benefits colonics can provide.
1) Lowers the Risk of Colon Cancer
Decrease the risk of cysts, polyps and cancerous growths in your gastrointestinal tract with colon hydrotherapy. Toxins we encounter each day are absorbed through our skin and processed by the body’s kidneys, liver and gastrointestinal system. Colon hydrotherapy forces these toxins from your organs before they have the chance to damage your body’s internal systems.
2) Improved Digestion
Constipation impairs the body’s ability to absorb important nutrients resulting in decreased energy and hindered immune functions. Colonics pushes undigested waste through your system and allows the body to absorb the nutrients it needs to thrive.
3) Prevents Constipation
Say goodbye to the sluggish feeling of constipation! Colon hydrotherapy prevents the slowed digestive response of constipation and decreases the likelihood of other conditions such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
4) Better Mood
Did you know your colon can affect your mood? A proper-functioning colon is important for ensuring appetite-control, sleep, mental processing and hormonal balance. The nerves located in the bowel and the brain communicate affecting chemical signals sent by the central nervous system throughout the body.
5) Kick-starts Weight Loss
The average colon can hold up to 8 meals worth of food before digestion. Food low in fiber produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the body’s intestinal walls, eventually turning to decaying fecal matter. When you cleanse your colon, these lingering low-fiber foods are flushed from your system sometimes resulting in significant weight loss. In addition to possible weight loss, colon hydrotherapy can also stimulate the metabolism.
6) Increased Energy
Individuals who undergo colon hydrotherapy enjoy a boost in energy, improved blood circulation and more restful sleep. Purging the body of toxins is extremely refreshing, energy that is otherwise being used to force waste through the intestines is instead rerouted to different areas of the body.
7) Boosts the Body’s Retention of Vitamins and Nutrients
Colon hydrotherapy clears-out the digestive tract, which in return allows water, vitamins, and nutrients to soak into the bloodstream enabling crucial nutrients to flow into the body.
8) Clearer Skin
Toxins hiding-out in the colon reach the bloodstream and escape through the pores of your skin. As a parting gift, these toxins clog-up pores leaving behind various forms of acne. Colonics eliminate toxins before they have the chance to reach the surface, thus resulting in clearer and healthier skin.
9) Improved Focus
A body clogged with toxins results in a lack of focus and concentration. When the digestive system is working properly it nourishes nerve cells and absorbs nutrients. Colon hydrotherapy makes-way for clear thinking, reduced stress-levels and overall harmonious emotions!
Colonics are different from enemas. While enemas can be done at home and are a one-time infusion, colonics involve multiple infusions and must be done by hydrotherapists with specialized equipment. When a patient is given a colonic, a tube is inserted into the rectum and warm water up to 16 gallons is slowly pumped into the body, using an advance filtration system . The procedure takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, and the full cleanse continues with increased bowel movements within the first few hours after the colonic.
