You may be constipated and don’t know it. You feel the results of constipation but, for the most part, you don’t make the connection between symptoms — such as irritability, bad breath, gas, bloating, breathing difficulties, acne, eczema, that spare tire around your waist, lack of energy, early aging, and headaches — to your sluggish, non-working colon.
For years I was told by my primary care physician one bowel movement every three or four days was normal, if that was normal for me. Wrong! I learned after many years of misery and suffering with a toxic body that I should have had one bowel movement for every meal I ate. You see, your body was created to operate the way if did when you were a baby – one meal in and the waste from another meal out. For most of us, that doesn’t happen. I’ve actually had a few (very few) clients come for their first visit worried something is wrong because they are having regular, normal bowel movements. Needless to say, I smile and reassure them they are A-OKAY! And, keep in mind, even if you are “regular,” a regular internal bath through colon hydrotherapy is still a good thing.
Remember, your colon is your body’s trash can, its waste depository. When your body’s waste depository is full of waste, every single cell in your body suffers. Each organ in your body works overtime, especially your detoxification organs – your kidneys, liver, skin and lungs.
So, how can you begin the process of healing your colon and getting rid of constipation? The answer is colon hydrotherapy. Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle infusion of purified water into your colon. The purpose is to get you hydrated to soften fecal matter that has become hard and impacted. This hard, impacted fecal matter can build up throughout the entire 5-6 feet of your colon and cause it to become clogged.
