The Importance of the Gut for Health:
The health of your gastrointestinal system is extremely important to your overall wellbeing. In fact, the gut can be thought of as the body’s second brain.
With the variety of things that wreak havoc on our digestive systems these days, it may seem impossible to try to get back in balance and restore yourself to optimal health. But it’s not just about digestive issues alone, as gastrointestinal health can be the root cause for many other health issues including brain and mental health.
However, with a bit of planning and time, it’s entirely possible to restore the full health of your gastrointestinal system, which can have major positive effects on your entire body, from mood, to memory, and more. Healing your gut allows the body to build a stronger immune system and produce the right kind of bacteria that tells your brain that it’s okay to feel good again.
The health of your gastrointestinal system is extremely important to your overall well-being. Largely responsible for the critical functions of the body’s digestive and immune systems, beneficial bacteria in your digestive system have the capability of affecting your body’s vitamin and mineral absorbency, hormone regulation, digestion, vitamin production, immune response, and ability to eliminate toxins, not to mention your overall mental health.
The practice of Colon Hydrotherapy:
The practice of colon hydrotherapy stems from the principle that regular evacuation of the bowel is necessary to avoid ill- health. Modern day living creates circumstances such as poor diet, stressful lifestyle and unhealthy personal habits resulting in irregular and/or inefficient bowel movement.
Poor elimination will lead to the accumulation of waste matter within the bowel with subsequent health problems. This can effect digestion, absorption, intestinal flora and intestinal mucosal integrity etc. and compromise intestinal function. It is common to read about functional disturbances of the bowels resulting in different symptoms and health problems. These include indigestion, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and a host of functional bowel disorders.
The purpose of Colon hydrotherapy is to assist with the smooth evacuation of bowel contents. Water infused into the colon hydrates the bowels, softens and loosens waste and stimulates peristaltic contractions.
The potential health benefits offered by colon hydrotherapy are many. It is useful in the prevention and maintenance of bowel function. When carried out efficiently for the right indications together with the proper advice on diet and nutrition, it can offer excellent results and relief.
According to Dr. Paul Flashner, MD:
“colon hydrotherapy is the perfect specific procedure to eliminate constipation and restore normal bowel function. A lot of disease comes from imbalances in the colon, as manifested by inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, autoimmune diseases, allergies, multiple sclerosis, and certainly constipation. There is no question about the huge difference a health professional can bring to the patient by utilizing colon hydrotherapy plus other complementary and alternative methods of healing.”
