Underlying virtually all diseases and disorders are some kind of bowel disorder! It’s like a sewer system; when the system becomes blocked, the body stays soaking up its toxic waste that’s only conducive to disease development. You might have heard of it as colonic irrigation and also as colonic treatment or most commonly, colonics.
Using colon hydrotherapy is to cleanse, energize and rejuvenate the digestive tract. A healthy colon is vital for optimal salute and wellbeing of the whole body. Additionally it is an important addition to a detox program. I’ve heard of colon hydrotherapy years ago when England’s Princess Diana famously embraced it and until recently, I poo-pooed the mere thought (excuse the pun!) But I can now confidently encourage everybody to do it. You may ask why would anybody need – let alone cover – to do this.
The human body is intended to be a self-cleansing organism. Unfortunately however, the contemporary lifestyle often makes it hard for the intestine to perform its natural functions efficiently. Well, colonic therapists agree that anxiety along with a sedentary, contemporary lifestyle often makes it hard for the intestine to perform its natural functions effectively and is responsible for most of what ails us. In reality, it was just such a lifestyle that prompted me to attempt colon hydrotherapy. I’ve been feeling more bloated and my skin problems weren’t improving.
In addition to this, my visits to the “throne” as my dad so quaintly describes his daily constitutional, has diminished in frequency to where I could hardly remember when the last time was! Gross, I know, but this is just the problem! We’re so puritan with our Victorian upbringings that shamed us into believing that ordinary body functions were “dirty”! I understand that the more irregular my bowel movements became, the more I stuck my head in the sand and just heard all the other men and women who complained in their intestines or rather the absence of any movement.
On the flip side, there is my darling husband! As regular as clockwork. I thought he had some kind of dysentery – that is how routine he had been compared to me! I bravely made a consultation with a renowned colon hydrotherapist in Brisbane and put off, not knowing quite what to expect. Before the procedure, I had a lengthy chat with the therapist about my medical history and lifestyle. The typical colon hydrotherapy treatment lasts approximately 45 minutes. Modesty is maintained at all times.
During the treatment itself, you’re fully covered, wearing a dress, and a sheet is placed from the waist down to keep dignity. In the therapists’ own words, it’s probably among the most vulnerable situations most people will find themselves in and she treated it with amazing sensitivity and no fuss! Most people today require a set of treatments, not only one – three to six colonics are usually suggested to successfully clean six feet of large intestine frequently known as the bowel or colon.
In my case I’ve finished 4 sessions and will now undergo every change of season. The process is assisted by a whole abdominal massage, which can be accomplished by the therapist with her hands, who incidentally, remains at your side during the whole procedure. After every colonic treatment I noticed my skin advancing. The huge boil-like acne I’ve endured for years, have virtually disappeared and all that remains are scar tissue.
My visits are more regular, at least every day and whilst for some that does not seem like much, for me it is a completely different world! Provided I drink 1.5 to 2 litres of water per day – and what a tough habit which will acquire! I also noticed a flatter stomach and my favorite one of a clear mind and mind. A clean body will encourage a clear mind, great ideas and actions, bringing like-minded people to you.
I chose this treatment to strengthen my immune system and eliminate the increasing heaviness that I experienced. But also because toxins in the colon may weaken and stress the heart, cause skin blemishes, paleness, psoriasis, liver spots, wrinkles and other facial conditions, irritate the lungs and cause foul breath, disturb mental function and lead to senility, cause joint stiffness and pain, cause muscle weakness and severe fatigue. And most of all, it robs you of your childhood, destroy your health, and make you become old long before your time! Specific conditions which respond especially well to colon hydrotherapy are chronic or severe constipation; indigestion; gasoline; exhaustion, particularly chronic fatigue syndrome; headaches; melancholy; anxiety and anxiety; allergies; lung ailments, including asthma; skin issues, including acne, psoriasis and eczema. Colonics also stimulate the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system to dump toxins.
