The Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy Could Transform Your Health
Approximately 42 million Americans are troubled with constipation each year. It has almost become “normal” to skip going poop multiple days in a row for most individuals. Well, here is some news, folks: you need to poop at least once every day—and if it’s not a beautiful Bristol Type 4 most of the time, you could be having some serious issues with your digestion.
The importance of digestive, or “gut,” health is ever-growing and the subject of many conversations in Naturopathic medicine and holistic healthcare.
Digestive health is critical because our gut plays a huge role in our overall health and well-being. The bacteria in our gut makes up about 70% of our immune system1, it helps us to maintain a healthy weight, it keeps our mood balanced, and it ensures that we are maximizing the nutrients from the food we eat. More and more conditions are being linked to imbalances in the gut, and individuals are searching out ways to improve their health through the treatment of their gut.
Colon hydrotherapy is one treatment that can help improve your gut health. Colon hydrotherapy, or colonics, is a gentle method of rinsing the colon with warm water, to expel fecal build-up and mucous plagues. This method of colon cleansing enables essential nutrients to be absorbed more effortlessly, removes harmful bacteria, and leaves you feeling revived and lighter. Colonics can also help your colon return itself back to its original, healthy form. If you have experienced years of constipation, gas, bloating, and other issues, this can leave the colon malformed, prone to build-up, and not effectively eliminating. Exercising the colon with colonics builds the health and function of the colon, bringing about better bowel movements and decreasing gas and bloating.
Colon hydrotherapy is extremely safe when performed by a trained expert using FDA approved equipment. Naturopathic colon cleansing is one of the many natural services doctors at PND can provide here at the naturopath care clinic, and one of the best forms of detox doctors recommend. The doctors at Prairie Naturopathic Doctors are trained in the prescription of colonics, and treatment is overseen by Dr. Todd Ferguson, Dr. Threasa Andrys, and Dr. Brianna Vick.
