Our colon or large intestine contains billions of friendly bacteria known as commensal micro flora, tenfold more than the total number of human cells in the whole human body. This micro flora aids in digestion, promotes vital nutrient production, maintains pH balance and prevents the proliferation of harmful bacteria. As the last portion of our gastrointestinal tract, we tend to forget about giving our large intestine a little bit of love!
Colon hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic or colon irrigation, is a safe and effective method that stimulates the natural peristalsis of the large intestine through a controlled, gentle method using gravity-fed pure-filtered and temperature-regulated water. Performed in private quarters, the procedure offers a discreet and comfortable setting with modern state-of-the-art equipment that employs a multistage water purification system that repeatedly flushes out the entire large intestine (all 5-6 feet!) using sterilized individual disposables for a sanitary and relaxing appointment.
During a colon hydrotherapy session a great deal of water is absorbed into the body. This affects the volume of blood and increases circulation. More cells means greater dilution of toxins flushed through elimination channels: the kidneys, skin and the bowel. Overall this assists the cardiovascular, immune and circulatory systems in greater efficiency. The condition of our colon has very significant effects on every organ in the human body and on our sense of wellbeing in general.
Maintaining a healthy colon can help alleviate chronic fatigue, constipation, headaches, PMS, arthritis, allergies, asthma, dark circles under one’s eyes, body odor, depression and can help facilitate weight loss, among numerous other health benefits. The colon plays a remarkable role in our body’s health, helping maintain our overall vitality and whole body homeostasis.
