Colon Cleansing System

As early as the ancient Greeks, colon cleansing system has been a part of the natural practices and tradition. In 1920’s, colon cleansing using fruit and colon irrigation became popular in the United States.

But what really is the importance of colon cleansing and is it safe to practice it?

The colon cleansing system can be categorized into two methods. The first one is the use of colon cleansing products. The second one includes a professional that will administer the colon cleansing method.

The use of colon cleansing products requires you to take supplements. This will force your colon to flush out the fecal matters. These products are available in local health stores and can also be ordered online. The following are samples of these products:

1. Laxatives
2. Oxygen powders
3. Capsules
4. Enemas
5. Herbal teas

It is highly recommended that you use organic and natural products like licorice root, psyllium husk and flax seeds to rinse, revitalize and supplement the digestion process.Use of natural and organic products helps in stimulating the muscle activity and regularization of bowel movements. This is important so that the colon can digest and absorb nutrients as well as condition the colon to have smooth flushing out of fecal wastes.

Another way of colon cleansing is high colonics. In 1900, the first machine to be used in this method was introduced. Nowadays, it is the colon therapists that are licensed to administer colon irrigation. This certain method is quite like the method of enema. However, high colonics involves more water and is less painful than enema. The process starts by asking you to lie down on a table. Then, a gravity-pump machine is use to flush up at least 15 gallons of water to your anus.

Water is administered in the colon as the therapist lightly massages your abdomen area to assist the body in flushing out the fecal wastes. The therapy session is repeated for at least an hour.

Water is necessary in order to be able to flush out the toxins and fecal matters that had been accumulated. Water should be sufficient enough so that the colon can get rid of the unwanted matters. The colon cleansing system will have a better result if you keep drinking water. The more water you drink, the more fecal wastes are going to be flush out of your body.

The colon therapists vary the pressures and temperature of the water being pump in. Some alternatives for water can be fruit enzymes, coffee and other herbs. Probiotics are recommended to revitalize the good bacteria that are flushed out during the process.

Colon cleansing has been practiced dating back to ancient times. The proof of this is autointoxication. It suggested the theory that the undigested food will be mounting up on the colon. This buildup will now produce toxic matters that will poison the whole system if it ever flows in the blood vessels.

The theory actually makes sense. The toxins are poisonous and even fatal if it is reabsorbed by the body.

How would you know if there are wastes building up on your colon? Some symptoms include constipation, acne, bad breath, headaches and loss of energy. The accumulation of wastes that can be reabsorbed by the body is dangerous and can lead up to a fatal condition such as the colon cancer.
