Not something you would talk about at a dinner party, but a properly function colon (large intestine) is the foundation for good health. Remember when Elvis Presley died of a drug overdose. At his autopsy, doctors made a startling discovery; his colon weighed 60 pounds! A normal colon weighs only 4 pounds, so poor Elvis was carrying over 50 pounds of impacted feces in his colon. This is an extreme example, but scientists estimate that the average adult has 10 to 15 pounds of toxic waste in the colon. So the next time someone tells you that you are full of it, it may not be a joke. For some people, this is a serious problem.
More Common Than You Think
Your intestinal tract is designed to excrete waste and toxins from your body. Poor diet, medications, disease, overuse of laxatives, sitting toilets, stress and inactivity all play a role in slowing down or stopping colon function. When this happens your colon becomes a poisonous dumpsite of toxic waste. This intestinal toxicity affects almost everyone. Do you have constipation, diarrhea, bad breath, gas, body odour, skin blemishes, abdominal pain or bloating? Any headaches, backaches, joint pain or sciatic pain? These are just a few of the symptoms of a troubled colon. And don't think that just because you have a daily bowel movement you are okay. Very often, the entire length of the colon is impacted with hardened fecal matter leaving only a narrow channel for small, soft stool to pass through.
An Ancient Tradition
Cleansing the bowel with water has been practised for 4,000 years dating back to the Egyptians. Also known as colonics, colon hydrotherapy uses specialized sterile equipment to gently and safely infuse pure, warm, filtered water into the colon. No drugs or chemicals are used. During the 30-45 minute procedure, metabolic waste is softened and loosened, and flushed from the colon. It's like cleaning baked lasagna from the bottom of a pan. Unlike an enema that only empties the rectum, colon hydrotherapy cleans the entire large intestine.
When impurities are not excreted, they are re-circulated back into your body and bloodstream, making you feel ill, tired and weak. Contamination from these toxins can lead to the development of significant disease. A big part of Elvis's demise can be attributed to the recycling of toxins from his plugged colon. Many people do cleanses (fall, spring, liver, gall bladder, colon, kidney) to rid their bodies of built-up toxins. These can help a lot, but they do not eliminate materials caked on the walls of the colon. Remember that toxins end up in your colon where they can be recycled back into your body. Always follow any type of cleanse with a colon hydrotherapy treatment to optimize results. This will ensure that the toxic material is broken down and removed so that it can no longer harm you.
Dr. Leonard Smith, M.D., a gastrointestinal surgeon, states that "colon hydrotherapy is the gentlest and most effective treatment for a constipation problem" and "people undergoing colon hydrotherapy on a prevention basis are quite surprised at how much waste is removed by the procedure". Contrary to popular belief, it does not make your bowel lazy or dependent upon the treatment. The filling and emptying of the colon actually strengthens the muscular tone and re-established normal bowel function.
Many Conditions Improve
The benefits of colon hydrotherapy are far-reaching, extending all the way from psychiatric improvement to constipation elimination. The list of conditions is extensive and includes aging, allergies, arthritis, candida, colitis, Crohn's, depression, diverticulitis, fibromyalgia, hemorrhoids, incontinence, liver disorders, irritable bowel, menstrual pain and parasites. It's an excellent detoxifier for the overindulgence of alcohol and drug addictions of all kinds. Colon hydrotherapy is critical for anyone undergoing cancer therapy to detoxify the body of the necessary but harmful agents used to kill cancer. Dr. E. Sayegh, M.D., urologist, reports that colon hydrotherapy also resolves prostatitis and enlarged prostate problems in men. In addition, Dr. Smith and other gastrointestinal specialists recommend that "colon hydrotherapy is the perfect cleansing medium for preparing the patient for colonoscopy".
You know something has hit the mainstream when it goes Hollywood. Colon hydrotherapy is very popular among celebrities. They call it a "rinse" and have them frequently to stay regular. They are in the business of looking great, and colon hydrotherapy provides them with the benefits of healthy skin and weight loss. You too can have great health. Colon hydrotherapy is the most effective treatment to cleanse your toxic colon.
