3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Having a Colonic
There are certain reasons why you should consider having a colonic, but first you must know what it exactly is. Colonic is a kind of therapy where water is infused into your rectum by a therapist in order to cleanse the colon from within. The water, which is filtered and warm, is introduced into your colon through your anus using a hose (speculum) and it flushes out waste products from the colon, which are then disposed off through the same hose. The process is fairly harmless, though it might cause some discomfort in the abdomen. It is not something you cannot do without, but nevertheless, there are three major reasons why a colonic is advisable:
1. It cleanses the colon from within and flushes out germs from it
A colonic session clears your colon tract of any unwanted wastes. A lot of unwanted wastes accumulate in your colon over the years which might be responsible for a number of abdominal diseases, bowel syndromes and other digestive problems. During a colonic, all such wastes and unwanted products are washed away and disposed off. Your colon is now more than just clean and devoid of any materials which could be responsible for any digestive problems.
2. It helps prevent constipation
The build-up of fecal matter in your colon prevents proper digestion of the food you eat. It is also responsible for hindering the proper absorption of water and nutrients. This results in constipation and other types of indigestion and bowel discomfort. When you have a colonic, all the unwanted and harmful fecal matter gets cleaned and disposed off, and your colon is as good as new. It is now able to function properly as it should without any hitch.
3. It contributes to the overall improvement of your health
This process cleans your colon of all toxins and unwanted wastes. It therefore also helps in the prevention of growth of harmful colon bacteria and yeast in your tract. All these eventually help in maintaining your overall health by keeping your colon, and digestive and intestinal tracts clean.
But before considering a colonic, you should always consult your physician. You should know whether you really need it and if it is safe for you. There are certain health conditions where a colonic is not advisable, so you must be absolutely sure. During a colonic, take all necessary precautions and care, so as to have a successful and beneficial session.
