Detoxification programs have long been used to help with many illnesses and conditions. Colon cleansing and colon hydrotherapy are two of the most popular detoxification therapies, and many swear by these alternative treatments for improved energy, health and vitality.
The colon is a long tube in your body that helps with the end of the digestive process, eliminates the residue of digestion from the intestinal tract and helps eliminate waste and toxins from the body. If the colon is not working properly, toxic waste and matter builds up in the body, causing fatigue and illness. Other symptoms of a “clogged” colon can include sluggishness and constipation, as the inner diameter of the colon becomes constricted with built up waste. Skin irritation, moodiness, gas and diarrhea can also be symptoms of a clogged colon.
Cleansing the colon can be essential for good health. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses the entire length of the colon by flushing the organ with filtered water. A sterile tube is inserted into the rectum and filtered water is used to irrigate the colon. As the water is cleaning the colon, an evacuation tube carries the waste away. Years of debris, toxic matter and mucus can be removed quickly and without lingering side effects.
This treatment is far more effective than an enema because it cleans the entire colon. Enemas clear the bottom half of the colon but don’t reach the uppermost portion effectively. In order to achieve maximum benefit of a clean colon, the entire organ must be flushed.
If you are suffering from constipation, lethargy and you’ve noticed that your skin doesn’t look as good as it used to, give your body a boost by trying colon hydrotherapy. You keep your skin and the outside of your body clean, so why not do the same for your insides? Do consult a licensed professional if you are convinced and wish to try out colon hydrotherapy.
Four Tips For Your First Colon Cleansing
1. You want to research about colon cleansing online. Learn all you can about it, because although you may think it's for you it just might not be. There are licensed facilities that will do the colon cleansing for you or you may opt to do it yourself with herbs. Either way you should be prepared by doing the proper research.
2. If doing a colon cleansing in a licensed facility please follow their rules. They will probably not have you eat for 12-24 hours before the procedure and will most likely ask you to drink lots of water instead. Water helps with the cleansing process and pure water will be used during the actual cleansing. Be prepared to immediately use the restroom when your cleansing is complete. It is just a part of the detoxification process. There is no need to feel embarassed as this is completely normal.
3. If doing a home colon cleansing follow the instructions carefully. Usually a home herbal cleanse takes place over 30 days by taking herbal pills. What will happen is the first few days will probably be pretty uncomfortable for you. You'll be using the restroom up to 5 times per day. If this doesn't slow down then you should take less of the herbal pills so as not to dehydrate your body. To help with hydration drink, at minimum, your body weight in ounces of water. So if you weigh 120 pounds, drink 120 ounces of water per day. That may be difficult, but water is healthy and it will help with the cleansing process.
4. While going through the discomfort just remember that you're doing something great for your body and will feel much better once the process is complete. No pain no gain certainly holds true for colon cleansing. Althoug there should be no actual pain, just some discomfort.
If you follow these 4 tips your first colon cleansing experience should be a much easier undertaking.
