What is the purpose of having a colonic?
The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Its major functions are eliminate waste and to conserve water.
Waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for sometime (i.e. impacted faeces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms etc), poses several problems. First this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired and weak. Second, impacted materials impair the colon''s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. And finally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, consitpation, and the result of these disorders.
How can I tell is I have toxic material in my colon?
This condition is prevalent in all civilised societies, and particularly in the UK. Common signs include, headaches, backaches, constipation, fatigue, bad breath, body odour, irritability, confusion, skin probems, abdominal gas, bloating, diarrhoea, sciatic pain, and so on.
It appears to be important to cleanse the colon, so why not use laxatives or enemas?
Those things aren''t substitutes for a colonic. Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum (the lowest 8 - 12 inches of the colon). Usually, one or two pints of water are used to do that. Suppositories are intended to accomplish the same task. Laxatives particularly herbal laxatives, are formulated for various purposes, such as to undo the effects of temporary constipation, to build up the tone of the colon muscle etc. But the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing without question is colonic hydrotherapy.
