People often tend to wince when you talk about the colon cleansing. However, a Colonic Hydrotherapy isn’t particularly a new fad as it actually stems from Ancient Greek society in their efforts to completely flush out toxins in the bowel to lessen the risk of poisoning. Nowadays, it’s a fashionable concept with the celebrity clientele building quite a furor around the treatment. Well, if Leo Di Caprio gets his insides flushed on a regular basis, why wouldn’t you? TreatNOW looks at the reasons why you should consider this treatment and how it could help you:

Those who don’t consume enough fibre could find that they need the procedure as a lack of fibre (cereal and whole grains plus soluble fibre, such as bran, fruit, vegetables, and oatmeal) contributes to some gastrointestinal problems, including colorectal cancer, constipation and diverticular disease. It is suggested that you should eat about 20 to 35 grams of fibre each day. Therefore those that find it hard to incorporate more fibre into their diet tend to go for a Colonic Hydrotherapy.

This treatment is said to combat primary bowel problems and help with inconstant bowel functions. Mucus can develop within the colon from meat particles that haven’t been digested properly. This build-up of mucus creates toxins which intrude on the blood circulation which can seriously poison the body resulting in possible fatigue, low energy and even weight gain. It is said that famous actors, singer and models such as Elle Macpherson use it to keep up with their busy schedules and to stay slim.

The procedure is said to improve the overall vitality of the body and the immune system. Some have even said it has made them lose weight; others believe that a colon hydrotherapy treatment will promote clean- good internal health which can lead to living a longer life. It is also indicated that this treatment could mean that colon cancer risks are lowered and could trigger improvements in your skin complexion and energy levels. Overall, cleansing the colon can also increase focus and alertness for work, relationships and your overall health.

Especially beneficial to the reproductive system, a colonic hydrotherapy can also rid the body of chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. For women, a colon that is weighed down by years of fatty oestrogen build-up can put too much pressure on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain on the womb.

For more basic benefits, waste within the body over a long period of time can become a breeding ground for bacteria and illness. A colon detox could allow waste to pass freely through your system.
