The Benefits of colon cleansing.

Benefits of Colon Cleansing

Makes the digestive system work better
When you cleanse your colon, the undigested waste is pushed through your system. This creates a clear way for better nutrient absorption and allows waste to pass easily resulting in more energy and better health.

Maintains regular discharge and prevents constipation
No one wants to have constipation, especially when it’s chronic. When you have constipation your body’s digestive response becomes sluggish, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the possibility of irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins, and many other illnesses. Colonic irrigation prevents constipation and decreases any possibilities of illnesses.

Decrease the risk of colon cancer and other diseases.
All the toxins that go inside your body through eating, drinking, breathing, and are absorbed through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. If these toxins are not removed from your organs as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems resulting in unwanted diseases. By removing stagnant body waste and toxins, you reduce the risk of polyps, cysts, and possible cancerous growth.

Improves concentration
Poor health and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause poor concentration. The buildup of mucus and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. With good health comes good concentration.

Increases energy
When the toxins in your body are removed you will feel rejuvenated. This is because colonic irrigation distributes and reroutes the energy that is used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colonic irrigation felt that they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep, and felt an increase in energy.

Treatment of irritable bowel syndrome
Colon Hydrotherapy can help treat symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, diarrhea, and lessen abdominal pain.

Improves the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients
Colonic irrigation 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 unobstructed.

Puts you in a better mood
Your colon’s health can affect your mood. When your colon is functioning perfectly you can have better appetite control, better sleep, better 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.

Great for starting a weight loss
Food with low fiber content moves through the digestive tract faster compared to food with high fiber content. This slow-moving food produces excess mucus that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter. Through the process of colonic irrigation, the colon is cleansed resulting in better digestion and faster metabolism.

Maintains PH balance in the bloodstream
Acid-forming high-protein food diets without enough fiber can cause blockages in the colon. This can lead to general malaise in the body. The colon’s tissue can become inflamed resulting in decreased ability to function properly. The colon’s main job is to allow only water, minerals, and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body’s pH will be thrown out of balance resulting in bad health and a weaker body.

Increase fertility
Colonic irrigation, as well as increased fiber intake combined with healthy food choices, improves overall health resulting in an increased fertility rate. Fat is estrogen-based. When too much fat is present in your body, becoming pregnant can become difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain. Colonic irrigation rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. This is the reason why many naturopaths recommend that both partners undergo colonic irrigation for better chances of pregnancy.

Improves whole-body health
When all the toxins are removed through Colon Hydrotherapy your body will feel refreshed, the nutrients your body needs are absorbed and distributed smoothly, your energy increases, and your colon returns back to its original health.
