Are Colonics good for Constipation?
Colonics are a GOD-SEND if you suffer from constipation. An immediate, natural relief that hydrates the body at the same time as removing waste.
Have you been having trouble with doing number 2 in the toilet? If your bowel movement patterns have significantly changed or if you are having a hard time passing stool, perhaps you may be constipated. Worry not though as most cases of mild to moderate constipation can be remedied at home.
Consider these tips to encourage bowel movements:
● Drink water – Drinking enough water softens the stool, making it easy to pass. Aim for 6 to 8 glasses of water a day or more if you are relatively active or living in a hot climate.
● Gradually add fiber into your diet – Don’t abruptly incorporate fiber into your diet as this may have a constipating effect. Slowly add fiber sources such as beans, avocados, broccoli, whole grains, seeds, nuts and barley.
● Sweat it out – Exercise can boost your metabolism and help the digestive tract work at their best. Consider doing light exercise such as walking, swimming, or yoga for at least 30 minutes, thrice a week.
● Consider colonic cleanse – Also known as colon irrigation or colon hydrotherapy, a colonic cleanse clears the colon of toxic and waste buildup, boosts the immune system and provides mental clarity.
A colonic cleanse is usually done by a certified professional in a spa or clinic setting. The therapist will insert a small tube into the rectum and allow filtered water to flow into the colon. The water will help to break up and remove any waste stuck in the colon walls. Colonics are also said to improve digestion and soothe bloating, gas and other digestive issues. People find them extremely helpful in relieving constipation.
If you are experiencing digestive issues, receiving a colonic cleanse or colonic irrigation may help.
Chronic constipation can make the digestive system becomes sluggish, making the waste and fecal materials stay longer in the system. The longer these wastes stay, the more chance you have of developing irritations, hemorrhoids, and other diseases. Colonic irrigation helps prevent constipation by flushing the toxins from the colon.
If you’re still struggling, it might be time to book an appointment for a colonic as there could be an underlying condition causing your constipation. Colonics can indeed help with constipation. For long-term relief, do a series of 10 colonic sessions within 30 days and focus on making dietary and lifestyle changes that will promote regularity.
