The intended purpose of a colonic is to cleanse or detoxify the body, along with other health benefits.
Below we list many of the the commonly cited benefits:
Makes the digestive system more effective
As the colon is cleansed, it pushes undigested waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. If waste remains in the body for too long, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and illness. A clean colon from a colon detox allows undigested waste to pass easily through your system.
Maintains regularity and prevents constipation
Constipation — especially when it's chronic — causes a sluggish digestive response, which in turn leaves waste in the system longer. This increases the likelihood that toxins will be released into the bloodstream. It is also a cause of other illnesses and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Releasing the toxins from your body is rejuvenating because it refocuses the energy usually used for forcing waste through your intestines to other parts of your body. People who have undergone colon detoxification say they have better blood circulation, more restful sleep and a boost in energy.
Increases the body's absorption of vitamins and nutrients
A colon that has been cleansed allows only water, vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream, rather than releasing toxins and bacteria through the colon walls. When the colon is detoxified, it clears the way for essential nutrients to filter into your body unobstructed.
Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose your concentration. The buildup of mucous and toxins in your colon can keep your body from getting what it needs to function, even if you eat a consistently healthy diet. Cleansing the colon with a detox diet can be the difference between feeling alert and not being able to focus. This has far-reaching ramifications for work, your relationships and your overall health.
Kick-starts weight loss
Foods lacking in fiber move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fiber choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter.
Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. The average human colon weighs about four pounds empty and can hold up to eight meals' worth of food before digestion finally occurs. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.
Decreases risk of colon cancer
All the toxins that you eat, drink, breathe in and absorb through your skin end up being processed by your gastrointestinal system and liver. If they are not forced from your colon and liver as quickly as possible, they can wreak havoc on your body's systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you reduce the causes and the risk of polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
Colon cleansing, as well as increased fiber intake and healthy food choices, improves regularity and helps keep your weight under control. Fat is estrogen-based, and if too much is present, becoming pregnant becomes more difficult. A colon that is weighed down by years of buildup can also press on the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs in women, causing strain.
Colon cleansing rids the body of many chemicals and toxins that affect the egg and sperm. Many naturopaths recommend that both partners undergo colon cleansing before attempting pregnancy.
Maintains pH balance in the bloodstream
Foods that cause colon blockages are acid-forming — particularly high-protein diets without enough fiber. This leads to general malaise in the body. The tissue of the colon eventually becomes diseased and inflamed, reducing the colon's ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, molds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or fecal material enter the bloodstream and connected tissue, the body's pH will be thrown out of balance.
Improves whole-body well-being
Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to feelings of lightness, strength and overall good health.
As much as colonics are considered a good thing there are a number of things we recommend you consider:
While thousands of colonics are performed around the world daily with no adverse events we offer these words of caution primarily for those who have medical conditions that impair their immunity, bowels, as well as others who have medical conditions that substantively compromise their health. If there is any doubt, please consult your physician. In rare cases a colonic can cause cramping, bloating, nausea and vomiting, and in very rare cases can lead to bowel perforations and a resulting infection. So if you are prone to any of these things we stress that you should consult your physician. It is important to drink lots of water during the day to avoid dehydration. The colon also serves to help remove water from digested food, and flushing it out regularly can change the body's electrolyte balance, leading to dehydration. While it is common practice for some to have have frequent colonics we do not recommend repeated (more than 3 in a month and at least one week apart) colonics without medical consultation either.
Will the colonic be painful?
There will be no pain at all. You may experience a feeling of fullness in the abdominal and possibly slight cramping created by the water. Gentle liquid (mostly or entirely water) flowing through your colon may give you an unusual sensation. The inserting of the small speculum takes only a few seconds and is not painful. After a minute or so you will not even feel that it is there. Most clients find the treatment to be relaxing, as you learn about good health and are motivated to be the best.
What side affects will I feel?
When toxins that have been lying dormant in the colon are being flushed out and stirred up, some may feel light-headed or nauseous during a session. This is called a “healing crisis” and will quickly pass. As you go along with your cleansing program, you may have additional healing crises, but you will feel much better overall, and day by day you will have a stronger feeling of health and well–being. The sensation is somewhat similar to fasting. The point is you are tinkering with your body chemistry and it is like a mild shock at first but it should be viewed the same as giving up drinking carbonated beverages all day.
