Benefits

 

The benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy can be quite profound and may include such things as:

A feeling of lightness – perhaps the most common thing we hear people say after a colonic is “Oh my goodness, I feel so light”. It’s not only a physical lightness that is noticed, but a mental or emotional one too – like when a weight has been lifted.

Increased energy and mental clarity – many people comment on how they can think clearer after colonics. Brain fog is common when one’s bowels are sluggish.

Better digestion and bowel function – bowel disfunction is incredibly common yet rarely does anyone talk about it. It’s almost unbelievable how many people are constipated. The build up of toxic debris in the bowel weakens the colon muscles and impairs its functioning. Colon Hydrotherapy exercises the colon and improves the peristaltic activity or muscular contractions by which the colon naturally moves material. This helps speed up the transit time of faecal matter once the colon muscles have been toned, strengthened, and rejuvenated. Colon Hydrotherapy is able to get you going to the toilet every single day. Change is possible.

Improved sleep patterns – many people remark how wonderfully they sleep after Colon Hydrotherapy sessions. When there is less waste to move through the bowel, and less toxins in the body, the body is able to rest better.

Removal of bad bacteria and parasites – bad bacteria and parasites are flushed out of the colon during a colonic along with the wastes. But more importantly, colonics changes the internal environment so that good and helpful gut bacteria can thrive and flourish.

Removal of dead bacteria post antibiotics – Because antibiotics kill off so many bacteria in the bowel, an environment is created where bad bacteria can thrive. It is all too common for people to develop thrush or candida overgrowth right after a course of antibiotics. Colonic Hydrotherapy is a highly effective in flushing out pockets of candida which reside in the bowel and cause yeast infections or thrush.

Accelerated detox / liver cleanse process – when the bowel is cleansed, the blood is cleansed. When the blood is cleansed, the liver is more able to detox. Nothing kick starts this cleansing process quite like Colon Hydrotherapy. It is a perfect addition to a juice fast or detox diet.

Cleansing the bloodstream and body – people who cleanse their bowels have cleaner blood. And as blood feeds every cell and tissue in the body, it makes sense that Colon Hydrotherapy is a fantastic cleansing treatment for the whole body.

Clearer skin and better breath – toxins are excreted from the body in 4 ways – via the bowel (faeces), the kidneys (urine), the skin (sweat) and through the lungs (breath). So when there are less toxins in the body, there are less toxins coming out of the skin, ones completion is much clearer. Likewise, less toxins exiting via the lungs means less bad breath.

Improved weight management – colon cleansing aids weight loss by getting rid of impacted material that is coated on the walls of the colon. It is not uncommon to shed 1 to 5 kg of stagnant, decaying matter over a course of colonic sessions. It kick-starts your metabolism, as well as refocuses your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.

Empowerment to make lifestyle changes – many people remark that colon cleansing has given them the motivation to want to put better fuel into their body, to hydrate it more effectively and to make healthier lifestyle choices. Colon Hydrotherapy is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Chatting with your therapist can give you tips and insights into making healthier lifestyle choices.

Preventative measure against disease – More than 2000 years ago, Hippocrates said "all disease begins in the gut." We're  now beginning to discover just how right he was.

Strengthening of the  immune system – about 70 to 80 percent of the system that governs your body’s ability to fight disease, resides in your digestive tract. And around 1.4m of that tract is your colon! When you improve the health of your colon, your immune system and every other system of your body benefits.

Heightened awareness of digestive system – sometimes we don’t know how bad things are until they get better. We may live with something ordinary or mediocre, or even downright awful and ‘put up with it’, because we think we have to...but we secretly wish…how amazing would it be to not be constipated? to go to the toilet easily, every day! Or how much less embarrassing would it be to not have so much gas? Wouldn’t you love to not get so bloated and distended? When we feel great, we notice.

Flatter stomach – when the colon is emptied, the abdomen is naturally flatter. People usually notice this straight away. But what happens over the course of treatments is that the bowel begins to contract more effectively and its contents move through more efficiently. There’s not so much waste in there to make the stomach stick out. Some people have a distended colon due to irritants, or gas. Colonics releases those and reshapes the colon so that it is able to work better.
