Colonics, also known as colon hydrotherapy or colon irrigation, have become increasingly popular within the past few years. Although, I have not had one yet I know many people who have and their experiences with it have only peaked my interest even more.
Basically, it is a procedure in which filtered water is pumped through a hose inserted into the rectum. This water flows through the colon and forces the colon to undergo a process called peristalsis. This process pushes wastes out of the colon and into a closed, waste disposal system. (Not the most comfortable experience I'm sure!)
The large intestine or colon are cleansed of toxins and other wastes that can accumulate over the years due to unhealthy diets and poor digestion. Most people can experience tremendous benefits after their body is rid of this excess waste. Some of friends of mine swear by it in helping them acheive clear skin. Other reported benefits are:
-Relief from constipation
-Increased mental capabilities
-Elimination of food cravings
I intend to get a colonic within the next few months because I would definitely love clearer skin and freedom from these sugar cravings of mine.
Have you had a colonic? If not, would you consider it?
