What is a colonic?
Colon Therapy (also known as colonics, colonic irrigation, and high colonic) is a safe, gentle and thorough method of removing waste from the large intestine using purified water. It is the gentle internal bathing of the colon, helping to cleanse the colon of accumulated debris, toxins, trapped gas, mucus, and undigested food. These often interfere with elimination, assimilation, and digestion and affect our level of well being. This cleansing can offer us increased and vibrant energy, healthier elimination, and an improved level of health.
Reasons for colonics
Conventional diets comprised of processed foods, high in saturated fats and low in natural fiber, contribute to irregular bowel habits and malnutrition. Mucus producing foods such as meat, dairy and flour products are also difficult for the body to eliminate. Consumption of these foods creates stress on the digestive system and eventually the entire body will suffer. Insufficient exercise, stress, overeating or ignoring your body's natural call to cleanse can all lead to bowel problems. A sluggish colon can release toxins into the blood stream. This can contribute to many illnesses from dandruff to cancer. Constipation is one of the first signs that our bowel is not functioning properly.
