Colonic - Colon hydrotherapy (Colonic Irrigation)
What is Colon hydrotherapy (colonic irrigation)?
It is a natural procedure, which does not disrupt the natural functioning of the intestinal system. Healthy intestines are a basis of a healthy life. Today's food is oversupplied with refined and preserved products with reduced natural fibres. This food delays movement of feces in the intestines, causing them to accrue in amounts of 5 to 25 kg, damages normal microflora, promotes development of parasites.Â The main advantage of hydro colon therapy is that it cleans both the intestinal lumen and walls. The hydro colon therapy works perfectly to remove symptoms of intestinal function deviations. The hydro colon therapy is the perfect, safe and effective method to cleanse the organism and large intestine (all of its sections) in 4 to 6 sessions.
Can colonic damage normal intestinal flora and upset the balance of healthy bacteria?
No. An average person's large intestine has 85% healthy bacteria, and 15% of bad bacteria. But, in modern age most people's large intestines have bad bacteria and this could rise to 30%. When food is not digested properly, feces tend to attach to the inside of the bowl. The resulting lack of lubrication intensifies the congestion and generates toxemia. This, in turn, upsets the normal acid-alkaline balance (PH) and further inhibits the growth of beneficial bacteria. Colon cleansing helps to restore the normal pH-value in the bowel. In this more supportive environment, the beneficial bacteria will once again thrive and disease-causing bacteria will find it more difficult to develop.
Am I carrying parasites around my body
This is unfortunately a lot more frequent than most would like to believe.
According to United Nations data:
"Overall, about 1.5 billion people have roundworms, making it the third most common human infection in the world. Whipworm infects 1 billion people. Hookworm is carried by more than 1.3 billion people in their gut. Schistosomes infect 265 million people."
Humans can actually play host to more than a hundred different types of parasites, ranging from microscopic ones to tapeworms that are several feet long. Contrary to popular belief, parasites are not restricted to our colon alone, but can be found in any other part of the body - in the lungs, the liver, in the muscles and joints, in the esophagus, the brain, the blood, the skin and even in the eyes!
Common parasites of the human body:
- The hookworm latches on the walls of the colon with its sharp teeth where if feeds on blood.
- The tapeworm is the longest parasite. A mature adult can lay a million eggs a day.Tapeworm eggs embedded in the colon.
- The roundworm can grow to be 20 inches (50cm) long and lay 200,000 eggs per day.
- Pinworms migrate outside the colon during the night to lay their eggs around the anus. This causes the nightly itching of many unsuspecting victims.
