What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonic or colonic irrigation is a safe, all-natural way of removing waste from the colon without the use of drugs in order to support detoxification, boost energy, relieve abdominal pain and support the immune system. Colon Hydrotherapy can regenerate parts of the large intestine by flushing out harmful bacteria and yeast fungi. This can have a healing effect on the overall digestive tract.
Why is Colon Hydrotherapy Important?
Our digestive tract is responsible for absorbing nutrients from foods we consume. Its job is to absorb any remaining water and electrolytes from the semi-solid remains of our diets and to form fecal matter. Through a wavelike motion called peristalsis, fecal matter and waste material are evacuated through the anal cavity. Colon Hydrotherapy aids in the removal of toxins from your gastrointestinal tract that can cause a variety of health problems, such as arthritis and high blood pressure. Colon cleansing improves health by removing toxins, boosting your energy and enhancing your immune system.
Who should do Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is recommended for any individual, since it provides many benefits such as reduced risk of colon cancer, improved mental outlook and immune system and aids in weight loss.
What science says about it?
The likely benefit claims are known in the community. But those claims are not supported by scientific evidence. Most of the medical professionals do not recommend this therapy. A 2020 study has reported that therapeutic entitlements about this therapy are misleading. The non-sterile water is sometimes used. The natural flora of the colon is stripped by these like procedures, harmful bacteria can proliferate. As a result, infections are established.
No harm according to medical research
It is not evident by research that this therapy is safe. There are very few studies, which have investigated the safety of therapy. It is believed that this will help in weight loss, detoxification, and cleansing before surgery, but there is no medical research evidence. Irritable bowel syndrome patients have improved symptoms, after going through this therapy, in a 2016 study. However, some side effects are reported by the people who have used the procedure. They were mild including bloating, diarrhea, cramping, abdominal pain, vomiting, and soreness etc. Severe complications can be kidney or heart failure.
