Colon cleansing also known as colonic hydrotherapy involves flushing the colon with fluid to remove waste. This practice has been around for years and involves removing toxins from the colon which accumulate over time due to digestive waste.
Colon cleansing can provide you with numerous benefits such as weight loss, better digestion and increased energy. Other benefits include:
- A lower risk of developing bowel cancer
- Improved digestion, especially beneficial for those experiencing discomfort from IBS, chronic constipation or diarrhoea
- Less bloating and flatulence
- Better absorption of vitamins and minerals
- Lightness and comfort in the abdominal area
If you are not warming to the idea of a colonic then we recommend introducing colon cleansing foods into your diet such as
Plant based fibres. A high fibre diet supports a healthy digestive tract
Greens such as wheatgrass, barley grass and spirulina. These greens are rich in chlorophyll which is great for colon cleansing
Fermented Foods. Kefir, sauerkraut and other fermented foods can help feed the friendly bacteria in the gut which will keep your colon healthy
Water. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water daily as this helps keep the digestive tract lubricated and reduces the risk of constipation and toxic waste build up.
If you are considering doing a colonic, we highly recommend consulting a professional as if not done properly, it can lead to colon damage. We offer professional colonic hydrotherapy on our 4, 7 or 10 day retreats.
