What is Colon Cleansing and its benefits

Of all the things in everyday life, why would one undergo colon cleansing? It doesn’t sound pleasant. However, experts claim that colon cleansing provides numerous health benefits like improving digestion and weight loss.

In spite of that, colon cleaning should be approached carefully under medical supervision. Colon cleansing helps improve your body’s overall wellness and reduce your risk of colon cancer, says colorectal expert Dr. Parameshwara C M.

What is colon cleansing?

Colon cleansing, also known as colonic hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation. Colon cleansing is usually referred for the medical procedures such as Colonoscopy. However, some medical practitioners offer colon cleansing for different purposes, such as detoxification.

But, colon cleansing is not necessary for such purposes, because of your bowel and the digestive system already eliminate bacteria from your body.

Colon cleanse involves flushing the colon with water and other fluids in order to remove the waste. It’s a practice that’s been around for ages since ancient times and the benefits are based upon the premise that digestive waste in the intestine can be a toxin to the body.

Generally, colon cleansing is performed by an expert colonic hygienist while you lay on the table. The process involves sending approximately 60 liters of water through a tube in the rectum. Toxins and other digestive wastes are then expelled through a different tube, and the procedure is repeated.

What are the benefits of colon cleansing?

With pollution, additives, and pesticides all around us say we live in a toxic age. The toxic buildup impacts on our colon to negatively affect digestion and overall health. The entire body becomes inactive and unable to perform day to day activities when the colon is held up with toxic material.

Here are some colon cleansing benefits

1. Prevents constipation and improves digestion

Constipation can cause due to poor digestion. Constipation ensures that toxic and waste products can linger in the body and impair digestion. This can prompt to an inability to absorb nutrients and subsequently, lack of energy impacts the immune function. Colon-rectal experts explain that Colon Cleansing will clear the way for good supplement absorption and thereby support good wellbeing.

2. Increases energy and concentration

Colon free of waste materials and toxins allows intestines to focus everywhere else. And, therefore energy levels will undoubtedly improve. Weak absorption of nutrients leads to loss of concentration as nutrition is crucial to the development of mental health. In addition, absorption of crucial proteins and vitamins that are important for mental clarity would improve with proper digestion.

3. Helps in weight loss

Foods which are low in fiber are often a part of an unhealthy diet. Proper digestion and the ability to feel ‘full’ are affected without adequate fiber. Also, low fiber foods stay in the gut for longer periods of time. During colon cleansing, all the food will be flushed out of the body and helps in losing weight.

4. The overall health of the colon

Toxins absorbed in the body will eventually find their way to the colon. When these toxins or wastes remain in the body they can severe untold damage. Getting rid of these wastes support many functions of the colon including digestion and proliferation of beneficial gut bacteria.

5. Encourages whole body detoxification

Combination of a hectic lifestyle and environmental factors make it difficult for the body to detoxify and which the body is unable to function normally. Toxic colon overload subsequently impacts on each and every organ in the long run. Detoxify the colon and encourage your whole body detoxification.
