As Hippocrates said, “All health begins in the gut”. Digestive issues have become epidemic in the USA. In addition, many people are on pharmaceutical drugs or other treatment plans that inhibit proper digestion and elimination. If we are not digesting or eliminating well, then we are not absorbing all of our nutrients and getting rid of our waste (and toxins) as our body requires. We begin to feel “off”, and sometimes sick.
A healthy colon produces Vitamin B, “the stress-fighting” and mood vitamin” and Vitamin K; absorbs water; and evacuates waste. A healthy gut improves absorption of vitamins and minerals. In fact, we can be malnourished, no matter how well we eat, if our gut isn’t absorbing well! We ARE what we eat. However, we are also what we digest (break down) and what we absorb.
Research has also shown that a healthy gut plays a vital role in psychological disorders such as anxiety and depression. The intestinal tract is known as the “second brain” and requires the same love and care that all of our organs need. Just as some people exercise on a daily basis to tone and tighten their outer body, colonics can be an avenue for cleansing, toning and rebuilding “your inner body”! Colonics can be used as a part of a treatment plan or as a general health improving approach.
