A colonic is a type of hydrotherapy, where a tube is inserted into the rectum while you lie on your side. Warm water is then gently passed into your colon. The water is eventually released like you would release a bowel movement, and it helps flush out fecal debris and toxins from your colon and digestive system. It is relatively painless for most people, and the health benefits are incredible.
Over the years, our bodies build up toxic waste, due to the lifestyles we live and the food and drink we consume. Which can lead to toxic waste in our body. This is not ideal, and can lead to many health problems further down the line.
Without taking care of your colon, you’re at risk of contracting various different illnesses and health problems. A poorly functioning colon is prone to common conditions such as constipation, insomnia, headaches and even depression. In severe cases, an unclean and poorly functioning colon can lead to colon cancer; believed to be the second biggest cancer killer in the US, second to prostae cancer in men and breast cancer in women. Which indicates why it’s imperative to take care of your colon and digestive system, and just by making few changes to your lifestyle can help to prevent many different health conditions that’s associated with poor functioning of your gut.
The role of the colon in the digestive system is to absorb water and nutrients from food after it’s broken down by the stomach and small intestine. The waste that’s left over is then neutralized by the colon to make it safe, so that it can continue its way through your body without causing any damage. In addition, the colon combines bacteria and food waste to produce essential vitamins for the body such as biotin and vitamin K.
