Maintaining a healthy colon is significant for maintaining overall health. A healthy colon requires good nerve and muscle tone, proper circulation, sufficient nutrients and pure water.
The colon is the sewer of your body. If it’s not cleansed, the waste throughout the body can’t get out. According to some estimates, about 70 million Americans suffer from bowel problems. These statistics cover only those people whose problems are severe enough to cause them to consult a medical doctor. People who aren’t even aware that they have a bowel problem are often in the worst condition.
When the colon is healthy, a person will have 2 or more well-formed bowel movements a day. These stools should be expelled effortlessly–within seconds after they sit down. If you have to strain or if you have to read a magazine while you wait for a movement, then you are constipated. Another indication of poor bowel function is if your stools are small and narrow, or if they are short or hard. You shouldn’t see any mucus, half-digested food, or blood.
Regardless of how good your diet is or how many vitamins you take, bowel problems can cause nutritional deficiency. When elimination is not sufficient, deposits of fecal matter build up along the wall of the colon or in the pockets of the colon.
In good case, the body cleanse out wastes out of your colon in 18-24 hours. However, when you’re not eliminating properly, these wastes may not leave for days and the material deposits along your colon walls may not leave for months or years. These deposits of fecal matter in the colon get irritated. The feces that remain in one’s system begin to decay, releasing toxins and poisonous gases that seep out into the blood and poison all the organs and tissues. The blood stream gets polluted, preventing it from removing the cells’ wastes. That is how the whole system gets poisoned by wastes.
There are several causes of bowel malfunction. The main cause is simply malnutrition. Most people don’t eat enough nourishing food to supply the muscles and tissues of the bowel with needed nutrients. The bowel begins to deteriorate and lose its muscle tone. Besides weakening the bowel, poor diet also causes hard stools.
If enough water isn’t consumed, the stools will be too dry. The same thing happens if the urge to go is ignored.
Lack of physical exercise is another cause of poor bowel function.
The large intestine also accumulates toxins due to stress and emotional holding patterns.
The body’s tissues won’t eliminate wastes unless the colon is working. The bodily systems are connected. Wastes from the colon can leak out and pollute other organs. This internal poisoning also causes mental depression and dark thoughts.
Many doctors are now embracing colonics (colonic hydrotherapy) as an addition to the traditional medical treatments, or as part an overall routine of complementary and alternative medicine.
Colonic Hydrotherapy (Colon Irrigation ) allows for a cleaner bloodstream, improved digestion and elimination, greater vitality and better assimilation of vital nutrients. In grouping with liver and lymphatic therapies, colon hydrotherapy becomes a significant part of the detoxification process.

Multiple sessions combined with good eating habits and regular exercise is necessary to achieve optimal results. The number of colonics you may need depends on your goals, intestinal health, dietary habits, and lifestyle choices.
