The job of the colon is to absorb water and minerals as well as eliminate the waste or faeces no longer needed by the body.
Some say that a healthy colon will produce two or three bowel movements a day, shortly after eating. Unfortunately, many people do not take proper care of their colons and suffer constipation and other problems.
Colon cleansing is preventative procedure by which parasites and other waste are removed from the colon to prevent problems occurring. A typical person holds about eight meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon. At least three meals worth of waste remain in the colon even with a bowel movement every day.
Certain foods, such as meat, take much longer to digest than others. To alleviate these problems some recommend having a colon cleanse at least once a year followed by ongoing colon maintenance as necessary.
Methods of colon cleansing include colonic hydrotherapy, enemas, herbal supplements and oxygen cleansers.
Colonic hydrotherapy is a safe and painless process that involves infusing filtered and temperature regulated water into the large intestine to dislodge impacted material and dilute bacteria and toxic concentrations. The treatment helps with the absorption of nutrients and well as improving muscle tone and peristaltic action.
