Colon Hydrotherapy

The average American diet wreaks havoc on the colon. High-fat, high sugar, laden with preservatives and toxins, and severely deficient in fiber, it causes a buildup. Peristalsis – the muscular contractions which move waste through the colon – is slowed, and the bowels become sluggish. Even if you're “regular” and eliminate on a daily basis, you can still have an impacted colon full of hardened waste. Pounds of material can accumulate inside, leaving you bloated and putting your health at risk.

Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle method of cleansing the inside of the colon, ridding the body of harmful toxins and buildup. Once the colon is free of the waste that has been impeding its function, patients notice surprising improvements. These can range from weight loss to a higher energy level to clearer skin to improved concentration. The body is able to absorb the vitamins and nutrients from food more efficiently, leading to better overall health.

To keep the colon in smooth working order, you should have hydrotherapy treatments on a fairly regular basis – but in the meantime, eating plenty of fiber and keeping your diet as organic and additive-free as possible will help move things along.
