Asthma, allergies and Gerd (Acid Reflux) are conditions that appear to be both increasing in incidence and severity in many Western countries.
Asthma is usually described as an illness that narrows the air passages of the lungs, causing breathing difficulties.
The term “allergies” is applied to a wide variety of complaints having in common a supersensitivity of the body’s immune system to exposure to certain substances such as pollen, chemicals and foods. In the words of Rabbi Dr. Yehonaton Sraya, “Whether it is seasonal hay fever, food allergies, or environmental allergies, this problem is affecting an ever-increasing number of people. Adults and children are equally affected and, depending upon the intensity of the symptoms, can suffer from mild to severe distress.”3 Gerd (Reflux) occurs when acids from the stomach move backward from the stomach into the esophagus, causing damage to muscle layers and producing feelings of heartburn, acidity in the throat and other unpleasant symptoms. Martin J. Blaser MD, writing for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, notes how “gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) has been increasing progressively in Western societies.”4 Estimates put the number of Americans suffering from this condition as one out of fifty, and the proportion of sufferers increases markedly in the over 40 age group.
For a healthy adult, food should spend no longer than 24 hours in the body before passing gently through the system. For an overweight or lethargic person, or one who indulges in non-nutritious food, that time can be an unhealthy 60 hours. Food and toxins remain in the body longer, decaying, fermenting, and putrefying, thus allowing more time for toxins to be absorbed by the body. Some reports say that pockets in the intestines can trap food and toxins for decades. This decaying material injures the walls of the intestines and damages nerves, glands, tissues, and cells.
The purpose of the intestinal system is to absorb nutrients from food and distribute them through the blood supply to the rest of the body. But when the intestines are clogged and the blood is tainted by toxins, the body suffers. The immune system is threatened and the body becomes susceptible to food allergies and food sensitivies. The aim is to remove the cause of the blockage, cleanse the colon of all impedance, and restore the immune system so the body can heal itself. Colon hydrotherapy eliminates toxins, rebuilds and strengthens the intestines, and balances the body’s restorative systems.
Colon hydrotherapy for allergies is a procedure that removes toxins from the bowels and stimulates the body’s immune system to fight off allergies in a natural way. Conventional medicine uses antihistamines and steroids to relieve the symptoms of allergies, but does nothing to remove the underlying cause of the body’s allergic reactions. Since allergies are affected by a faulty immune system, boosting the immune response is one approach that can be used to prevent allergic reactions.
Colon hydrotherapy cleans the body’s internal system, boosts the immune system, removes toxins, and brings the body into balance. With the blockage in the colon removed, the stress on the body and its asthma, gerd and allergic symptoms is eliminated. The intimate relationship between physical and emotional well being often expressed in English as “a healthy mind in a healthy body” then goes to work to free the patient from the clutches of these sicknesses with all their undesirable manifestations and disturbing long-term effects.
