Does YOUR Colon need a Cleansing?

The colon is designed to remove solid waste from the body. Eating lots of fiber (whole grains, fresh veggies/fruit) and drinking plenty of water will keep things moving along. Regularity varies from person to person, but can be anything from 3 bowel movements a day, to 3 bowel movements a week. As long as everything is moving along nicely, then NO, you do not need to undergo colon cleansing.

I recently took antibiotics, which killed both the good and bad bacteria in my gut. Guess what happened next? I become severely constipated. My belly was protruding severely. I looked pregnant!

  • Bacteria give your stools the properties needed (ie. softness & moisture) to pass through your intestinal tract with ease.
  • When these bacteria are missing (ie. because of a recent course of antibiotics), your stools become hard and dry.
  • Hard and dry stools are difficult to pass, resulting in constipation.
  • Constipation is typically accompanied by bloating and abdominal discomfort.

I needed relief! My doctor recommended I try colon hydrotherapy.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as a colonic, removes waste from the colon, without the use of drugs. Warm filtered water gently flows into the colon, softening waste and stimulating the colon's natural peristaltic action.

I did not find it to be painful. A small disposable speculum was gently inserted only a couple of inches into the rectum. The most I felt was a bit of cramping. The entire session lasted ~45 minutes.

I felt immediate relief following my session. My belly bloat disappeared by the time I got home. I also lost 5 pounds. Yes, I had collected 5 pounds of impacted fecal matter! Gross!

Remember: a colonic may help you drop weight, but it will not help you drop fat! There is a difference between the two! If you want to drop fat, then Click here to subscribe to my Free Intermittent Fasting Tutorials!

Probiotics:

Colon Hydrotherapy removes both unhealthy and healthy bacteria. It's important to replace the "good" bacteria in your colon by taking probiotics after your colonic for at least 30 days.
