Good digestion is very crucial for maintaining healthy immune function. A healthy digestive system depends on a healthy diet.
The American cancer society suggests that the increase in bowel cancer is due to pesticides, and germicides sprayed on our crops, hormones, and antibiotics fed to our livestock, and carcinogenic agents found in the air that we breathe, and the water that we drink. Our colons can become a welcoming home for these types of toxins.
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colon cleansing, colonic, or colonic irrigation is a procedure in which large amounts of water are flushed through the colon to support detoxification, boost energy, relieve abdominal pain and support the immune system. A colon hydrotherapy session usually takes between 30 – 60 minutes.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a completely natural treatment that is enjoyed by thousands of people every day, from celebrities and film stars to ordinary people of all ages, from all walks of life. It may seem a little strange at first, but the more you learn about the treatment and its many benefits, the more you’ll see that it is a very normal and natural way to take care of your health and wellbeing.
Why have a colonic in Lumina Aesthetics Clinic Bali?
The truth is after eating, what happens in our body between the stomach and the toilet, has a serious daily impact on our energy, emotions, vitality, complexion and susceptibility to disease. Over time, waste materials can overload the body’s system and become compacted and hardened into gas, mucous, inflammation or parasites. This impacts the digestive ‘plumbing’ system, slowing it down and weakening the transportation of waste. Just like old or heavily soiled pipes, the colon can be slowly compromised over years of heavy work, illness, trauma and generally just overdoing it to not work effectively and harm our body.
Here’s Signs of an unhealthy colon/large intestine:
- Bad breath, coated tongue and general body odour
- Unhealthy skin, sallow complexion and dull eyes
- Aches and pains and/or swollen joints
- Confusion and irritability
- Fatigue and insomnia
- Allergies and/or chronic sinus problems
- Bloating as well as flatulence or diarrhoea
- Abdominal pain, tenderness
- Lower back pain or poor posture
- Brittle nails and hair
- Cold hands and feet
- High or low blood pressure
- Menstrual changes, discomfort
- Sluggish mood, lack of interest and enthusiasm
- Sciatic pain
- Yeast infections
- Depression and anxiety
Colon hydrotherapy is a popular alternative remedy that some people claim removes waste and toxins from the colon.
Colon Hydrotherapy can help improve your body’s overall health and wellness, and may even reduce your risks for colon cancer.
MAKES THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM MORE EFFECTIVE
As the colon is cleansed, it pushes waste through your system, clearing the way for good nutrient absorption. A clean colon from a colon detox allows waste to pass easily.
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 of certain conditions and irritations, such as haemorrhoids 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’s been cleansed allows only water, vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream, creating an unobstructed path for essential nutrients to filter into your body.
Poor diet and ineffective vitamin absorption can cause you to become distracted and lose 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 fibre move through the digestive tract at one-quarter the pace of high-fibre choices. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying faecal matter. Colon cleansing has the potential to aid weight loss; some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over 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, and absorb through your skin end up processed by your gastrointestinal system, kidneys, and liver. If they’re not forced from your organs 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 fibre 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 fibre. This leads to general malaise in the body. The colon’s tissue eventually becomes inflamed, reducing its ability to do its job, which is to allow only water, minerals and vitamins to pass into the bloodstream. If yeasts, moulds, fungus, bacteria, parasites or faecal 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, increased energy, and overall good health.
How does Colon hydrotherapy work?
Once you are comfortably positioned on the Colon Hydrotherapy system, a towel is placed over you to maintain your privacy. A sterile catheter is then inserted into the rectum; Lumina’s nurse will start the procedure by turning on the switch allowing room temperature water to start gently flowing into the colon to stimulate the body’s own peristaltic motion.
This flow of water continues until light cramping is experienced. At this point, you will release the water and the faecal matter is eliminated hygienically. This process is repeated until 1 full tank of water has been used. Each time you release the water, you are also releasing waste material from your digestive tract, which may not have been removed without the procedure. A registered nurse/Colon Hydrotherapist is always available to assist you with the procedure or answer any questions you may have.
Here at Lumina Aesthetics, you will be attended to by one of our trained and certified Doctors who will take you through the entire process with ease.
