Spring symbolizes rebirth and change. As we reflect on new beginnings, we are motivated to restore and refresh our own lives. Spring cleaning around the house or garage creates a sense of satisfaction, and a fresh start to the new season.

Similarly, a colon hydrotherapy cleanse gives our bodies a fresh start, creating that same satisfying feeling. Cleanliness and purity create a calm energy throughout the mind, body, and spirit.

The colon is known as the body’s sewage system. Its role as an eliminative organ is to remove waste material by mass muscular contraction called peristalsis. Indulgence in foods that are highly processed and refined, high in saturated fats and low in fiber can lead to blockages in the colon.

If waste material remains stagnant in the colon, the waste decomposes resulting in the production of toxins and excess gas. These hazardous toxins are absorbed and increase the risk of disease in the body. The effects of a stagnant colon also result in constipation, weight gain, bad breath, headaches, skin outbreaks and blemishes, lower back pain, and lack of energy. Daniel L. Johnson M.D. of Palm Desert states, “It has been estimated by many that 90% of all illnesses start with an unhealthy colon.”

Water is a key element to maintaining colon health and ensuring the release of blockages. Colon hydrotherapy is an ancient practice that uses purified water to cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, toxins and accumulated fecal matter. It is a safe, hygienic, painless and gentle treatment that infuses 8 gallons of filtered water into the rectum and cleanses the entire 6 ft. colon without stressing the individual.

Colon hydrotherapy cleansing has been proven effective for constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, gas, headaches, detoxification, PMS, prostate issues, fatigue, eczema, digestive disorders, parasites, allergies, asthma, infertility, increased energy improved skin, kidney function, and insomnia.[sup]1[/sup] It is the ultimate cleanse for the body, from the inside, out.

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and could not come at a better time than the beginning of spring. Routine colon hydrotherapy cleansing prevents stagnation, minimizing the exposure of potential cancer-causing agents to the colon wall, and lowering the risk of colon cancer which is the second leading cancer killer in the US.

Colonoscopy screenings are key to early detection and in order for the screen to be efficient and thorough, many doctors require their patients to have a colon hydrotherapy treatment prior so they have the cleanest colon with which to work.

Health and wellness begins within. This season, take ‘spring cleaning’ to a whole new level: allow yourself the health benefits and peace of mind that comes from a clean, efficient and healthy digestive system.
