5 Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

In our previous post, we discussed Colon Hydrotherapy and the history around it. To recap, a colonic cleanse deeply cleanses the large and small colon by flushing water, sometimes coffee or tea, by the means of a colon hydrotherapy instrument that is inserted into the rectum. This will stimulate the bowels and help you go to the bathroom. 

Colon cleansing can help improve your body’s overall health and wellness and may even reduce your risks for colon cancer. Here are more benefits of this natural treatment:

1. Kick-start weight loss

Foods lacking in fiber are often part of an unhealthy diet and move through the digestive tract at a slower pace than foods containing a high-fiber content. This slow-moving food lingers longer in the gut. The human colon can hold up to eight meals' worth of food before digestion finally occurs. When the colon undergoes cleansing it removes this matter from the system and has the potential to aid weight loss along with refocusing your attention to make better food choices.

2. Maintain regularity and prevents constipation

When constipated, waste products linger in your body for longer than they should. This also means that your body is not absorbing the nutrients that is being put into your body in the form of food which in turn results in a lack of energy and a hampered immune function.

Cleansing your colon allows these lingering, undigested waste products to be pushed through your system and eases your bowel regularity. Since lingering waste can breed bacteria, this purge clears the way for good nutrient absorption, thereby supporting good health.

3. Decreases the risk of colon cancer

A combination of all the toxins that enter your body through eating, drink, breathing, and absorption through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. Through releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract. 

In no way is Kallima Lifestyle Clinic advocating that cancer can be cured by colonic alone however, research has shown that colonics can reduce the symptoms thereof combined with making other lifestyle changes that should be considered.

We do however believe that a healthy diet and colonics go hand in hand, in other words, if you are following an unhealthy diet you are voiding the positive benefits of colonics.

4. Increased energy

Releasing the toxins from your body allows your body to refocus the energy that is usually used for forcing waste through your intestines, to other parts of your body. As an added benefit, the absorption of crucial vitamins improves mental clarity.  Individuals who have undergone colon hydrotherapy also report that they have better blood circulation and more restful sleep.

5. Whole-Body well-being Improvement

The body is equipped to constantly detoxifying itself. However, at times the combination of environmental factors and continuous poor lifestyle habits make it hard for your body to catch up. Cleansing the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon build-up can lead to feelings of lightness, increased energy, and overall good health.
