How Colonics Work
When it comes to weight loss and general health many experts point to the importance of the colon. In fact, the digestive track, including the large and small intestine, stomach and colon can be the seat of a variety of acute and chronic diseases.
As such, taking care of this part of the body is fundamental to good health. Moreover, a clean and working digestive track can also help to speed weight loss, increase the absorption of nutrients and improve strength, vitality and immune system function.
So how do colonics work? Well colonics, sometimes known as colon hydrotherapy is a process in which water and sometimes other substances are moved through the colon in order to cleanse it of impurities. A tube is generally inserted into the rectum a small ways and then fluid flows into the colon and sometimes retained there for a few minutes or more.
The process is thought o help to dissolve and remove toxic wastes, microorganisms, sludge and parasites that can hinder nutrient absorption, cause disease and give rise to various disorders. For those proponents of colonics, there is nothing like the feeling that comes after a colonic.
Colonics are said to aid in a variety of conditions. Colon hydrotherapists claim that the a good colonic will help with allergic disorders and immune system malfunction, chronic constipation, depression, eczemas, rashes, acne and psoriasis, headaches, fatigue, blood pressure and anemia, parasites, obesity, indigestion, and flatulency as well as helping to prevent tumors in the large intestine.
If you have one or many of these conditions you may benefit from colon hydrotherapy. You may also want to seek out a colonic if you are planning on having surgery in the near future, if you are about to engage in a detox of fasting program, if you are suffering from chronic constipation, if you are feeling particularly overtaxed or irritable and suffering from stomach complaints, and/or if you simply feel the need to detoxify after perhaps a bout of poor food choices or illness.
Many dieters also benefit from colonics as it can help to speed up weight loss. Not only will a colonic cleanse immediately help you lose a few pounds, it will also make your digestion work better thereby ensuring you get more nutrients with less calories. Colonics can therefore be an important part of a dieting and exercise program. A clean colon will yield many benefits, most importantly a fresh start.
