What Goes in MUST Come OutSeptember 2, 2009
We all do it, we all hate to talk about it, and we all need to know more about it. What Goes in MUST Come Out! Probably one of the most dreaded subject matters is the bowel movement. Nothing causes embarrassment more readily than the act itself and all things associated: flatulence, hemorrhoids, diarrhea and constipation.
I am going to try to take a little discomfort out of this very important subject because, frankly, your life could depend on it. According to Dr. Michael Gershon, a leading researcher on colon function, our gut is much like a second brain affecting everything from our digestive system to our emotional health. For more information on why our colon health is so important, I consulted Honey Dunson, a New York City based colon hydrotherapist. She shares her answers below.
What does a colon hydrotherapist do?
The job of a colon hydrotherapist is to assist in the removal of excess waste, undigested food, gas, mucous, and unfriendly bacteria that have been stored in the body, through the gentle infusion of purified water into the colon.
Why is Colon Health So Important?
Colon health is vital in maintaining a healthy body. The body cannot function optimally if the colon is filled with waste and unhealthy bacteria. Studies have shown that an unhealthy colon leads to most diseases of the body, therefore proving that proper elimination is key to good health.
What causes poor colon health? Can this be reversed?
Unfortunately, in our society there are currently so many factors that lead to poor colon health. Some of which are an improper diet, including refined foods, sugar, caffeine, dairy, lack of water, bowel movements and exercise. But fortunately this can be reversed by applying the opposite: a diet rich in fresh organic fruits and vegetables, plenty of water, exercise and periodic colon hydrotherapy treatments.
Can you share some examples of health problems that you have seen resolved by detoxification of the colon?
Every person has a different system and therefore will benefit differently from detoxification of the colon. But, in my experience I have seen many wonderful results from detoxification, such as: relief from gas and bloating, the reversal of constipation, dramatic increase in energy, improved digestion, mental clarity, improved vision and relief from migraines and menstrual cramps. These are just some of the benefits of colon detoxification.
