Colon hydrotherapy is an ancient therapy, practiced long before conventional medicine. It is a method of introducing slow-moving water into the colon.
Washing out waste gives relief to bloating and is an opportunity to help with constipation and other abdominal discomforts such as IBS.
It works by challenging the body’s heat-regulation mechanism. By challenging the body’s temperature equilibrium, this in turn will determine the extent to which the nervous system is brought into play.
Hydrotherapy is not only for people who are suffering with uncomfortable bowel complaints, but can be used for a wellness treatment, as it massages the organ, helping to relief tensions and distortions that could hinder its proper function.
The gut: a little-loved organ
The gut is an important organ and our gut microbiome, – or our individual gut plan of good ‘gut flora’ or bacteria, as we commonly know it – plays a key part in obesity, allergies and depression.
With the ever-increasing incidence of gastrointestinal diseases and symptoms in the Western world, such as diverticulitis and colitis constipation, many people seek alternatives to conventional medicine if they feel it hasn’t helped them. If something goes wrong with your gut, it’s not as obvious as a broken arm or leg. However, what’s in your gut is one of the most important factors in long-term health.
Why have colonics?
We spend a lot of money on our external appearances, we have our hair and our nails or our teeth cleaned and whitened or we might opt for Botox. But when it comes to looking after the real engine room of our bodies, our colon, which is housed in our abdominal region, we almost go out of our way to neglect it.
When it needs a little help we take laxatives, which we really shouldn’t be taking long term. We eat all the wrong things and we might drink and we still expect it to work effectively. Well, it really doesn’t work like that.
