Colon cleansing dates back to ancient times, enemas were recorded as early as 1500B.C. in Egyptian medical documents called the “Eber Paprus”. These ancient texts including the bible refer to cleansing the colon as a matter of course. If the body is truly in balance, elimination would take place after every meal. If this is not the case there is backlog. If we think about our processed diets today we certainly have backlog and build up in the colon.
Our grandparents and great-grandparents grew up with the use of enema’s as an accepted procedure for reversing the onset of illness.
“In past times, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were taught how to care for the bowel. Somehow, bowel wisdom got lost and it became something that no one wanted to talk about anymore”. Bernard Jensen, D.C.
Modern living and eating habits as well as stress all inhibit the bowel function. When the elimination process slows down for any reason toxins are re-absorbed into the body causing auto- toxicity. Most people leading a typical western life-style need a helping hand from time to time.
Colon Hydrotherapy can help to re-educate and the bowel.
The walls of the colon are governed by peristaltic / muscular movement, however our western diet and sedentary lifestyle aid in the build up of faeces accumulating in the curved pockets of the bowel. Colon hydrotherapy helps soften hard faecal matter that may otherwise not be released naturally.
