What is a colonic
What is a colonic?
Colonics are different from enemas. While enemas can be done at home and are a one-time infusion, colonics involve multiple infusions and must be done by hydrotherapists with specialized equipment.
Supporters of colonics believe toxins build up in the colon over time due to food, drink
and general lifestyle habits, which in turn cause health problems such as bloating, fatigue, weight gain and skin problems.
It’s also believed a colonic can help get rid of toxins and leave you feeling brighter and lighter.
Let’s explore further.
In this article we’ll learn about an incredible treatment that rinses the colon, is 100% natural and full of benefits.
But first I’d like to note, according to Kris Gunnars, BSc, who writes for Healthline, “a colon that’s clean allows water and nutrients to enter the bloodstream, and not putrified waste”.
And this is why naturopathic doctors believe colonics can be beneficial.
What are colonics good for
In Kris’s findings, riding the colon of waste and toxins can lead to feelings of lightness, increased energy and over all good health.
And, by releasing layers, if not years of waste buildup, you are now free to absorb vital nutrients.
PH balance and colonics
Foods that cause colon blockages are usually acid forming, particularly proteins without enough fiber.
This can lead to an inflamed colon, reducing it’s ability to function properly.
Furthermore, if yeast, mold, fungus, bad bacteria and fecal material enter the blood and connected tissue, the body’s PH will diminish.
And an acid body allows diseases, illnesses and bad bacteria to thrive, therefore a healthy PH is vital, according to Dr Mark Hyman, MD.
Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm.
And many naturopath and fertility doctors recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing if struggling with conception.
Kick-start weight loss
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices.
This can result is a slower metabolism, making it impossible to lose weight.
Keeping the colon clean and functioning properly, is the first step in kick-starting weight loss.
Decrease the risk of colon cancer and other issues
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe, and absorb through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver.
If they’re not flushed from our organs, they can wreak havoc on your body’s systems.
By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in our colon and gastrointestinal tract.
Colonic can also kick-start healthier digestion.
Once the colon is clean, the digestive system will function properly on diet higher in green fiber.
This will also allow nutrients to absorb easily into the blood.
Colonics can potentially increase energy levels almost immediately.
Energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines is now free to focus on other parts of your body.
Most people are nutrient deprived.
Nutrients are said by experts not to be absorbed when a colon is clogged with waste and toxins.
Therefore a clean colon is vital for this action, as well as a healthy diet.
Improved concentration and mood
This is super true, from my experience.
A toxic body weighs us down and our mood responds accordingly, I feel.
And this has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships, and your overall health.
There are many more reasons to keep your colon clean and functioning.
And more and more naturopathic doctors are recommending them as part of their protocol.
When our bodies are overwhelmed by toxic substances beyond its ability to eliminate them through the channels of elimination, this crisis is called sickness or disease.
And half of America do not have a bowel movement each day, according to studies.
Dr. J. H. Tilden, the author is Toxemia says:
“One of the first things to do to get rid of any so-called disease is to get rid of Toxemia, for it is this state of the blood that makes disease possible.
He further states that the toxins released by the decay can get into the bloodstream and travel to all parts of the body.
Additionally, colonics can improve skin, hair, eye color, fatigue, stiff joints, allergies, and the list goes on.
