What are Colonics?
A colonic is a safe, clean and gentle complementary therapy that cleanses the colon of toxic waste and hydrates and tones the colon to make it more efficient at eliminating our waste.
Colonics are currently trendy since it became part of the rich and famous health and beauty routine. The treatment continues to receive much media attention, including being featured on Dr Gillian McKeiths TV show and books 'You are what you eat'.
The modern diet is rich in processed, fatty foods and low in fresh vegetables and dietary fibre. The colon is a large muscle around 5½ feet in length and becomes clogged up with the toxic waste that we struggle to eliminate from our body. This toxic matter turns into a hard rubber substance and clings to the colon wall – we can have up to 20 lbs of this waste material in our colon!
If our colon was functioning efficiently we would eliminate our waste after every meal, just like a baby! However, many people have difficulty in achieving this once a day! Colon hydrotherapy can contribute to restarting regular movement and thereby improving general health.
