With Colon Hydrotherapy our therapist encourages your body to detoxify more fully by incorporating the techniques of massage, lymphatic drainage, meridian work, breath work, and acupressure. The top four benefits of this work are: releases toxins, cleanses the blood, empowers the immune system, and helps to restore the pH balance in the body.
Toxins in the Body Affect the Skin
The skin is the largest organ of the body. One of its function is to eliminate a portion of the body's toxic waste products. If the body contains more toxins than the kidney, liver, and colon can effectively discharge, the skin will take over. A strong association exists between a toxic state of the colon and many types of skin disorders. As toxins escape through the skin, they disrupt the skin's healthy integrity. Acne sores, skin boils and rushes are common examples of how the skin gets rid of excess waste.
Waste material that has remained in the colon for some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, parasites, etc.), posses several problems since this material is quite toxic. These poisons can reenter and circulate in the bloodstream, making us feel weak, tired, or ill. Also, impacted materials impair the colon's ability to assimilate minerals and healthy bacteria. A buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time, and constipation.
Other causes of many skin problems include food and chemical sensitivities such as allergy, infection, inflammation, stress, nutritional and hormonal disorders, or just a poor diet.
For many people skin problems can be better managed, and even completely cured, by attending to your overall health, not just your skin. A healthy and clean body will have healthy skin to show for it.
Dr. Bernard Jensen said:
Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the intestinal system. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty, and so are the organs and tissues. It is the intestinal system that has to be cared for before any effective healing can take place.
Ridding the Body of Toxins
Colon Hydrotherapy (also known as colon cleansing, colonic or colon irrigation) is a natural procedure that can alleviate the congestion and buildup of unwanted waste materials, or toxins, in the body.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method for cleansing the colon of waste materials by repeated, gentle flushing with water.
Colonics help your immune system to help itself by giving it a chance to 'breathe' and by allowing the lymph system to effectively cleanse the body.
Colon Hydrotherapy's Action on the Colon
- Cleanse the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently removed in a series of treatments. Your colon can begin to operate as it was intended. In this sense, a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.
- Exercise the Colon Muscles: The build-up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material.
- Reshape the Colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape, which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with massage techniques of the colon therapist, help eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
- Stimulate Reflex Points: The colon connects to every system and organ of the body by reflex points. The colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.
