Colon hydrotherapy is known as a wonderful therapy that can support health and healing.  Colonics will flush out old stagnant waste matter accumulated inside the colon that can lead to the formation of discomfort and disease.

At Angel Hydrotherapy, we provide colonic services with a high level of professionalism to ensure patient comfort. If you are looking to reap the benefits of colonics, consider a colon cleanse in Toronto at Angel Hydrotherapy.

The reality is that there is a direct connection between colonics and women’s health, and men’s health. In this article, we will discuss the many benefits of colonics and show you how you too can benefit from this miraculous healing modality.

Improves Digestion

One of the most obvious benefits of colonic irrigation is that it can work to improve overall digestion.  When the colon is backed up, the whole digestive process becomes sluggish, and we are no longer able to digest and assimilate foods in the manner we are accustomed to. The digestive process will be strained, overburdened and we may no longer be able to make sufficient amounts of stomach acid, bile salts, and enzymes to properly digest what is eaten.

When the colon is clogged, there is most likely a backup throughout the entire digestive tract.  This will make it very difficult for the body to absorb the nutrients as it normally would, and without proper nutrition, the digestive system will not be able to function at its best. When the colon is sufficiently cleansed by means of a colonic, space and energy is cleared.  Digestion can then flow, be strong and work as it should.

One of the major health concerns of individuals seeking out colonics is constipation. Constipation is very common and most people have experienced it to one degree or another at some juncture.  Ideally, if food is consumed 3 times a day, you would want to have 3 bowel movements a day to ensure waste is being evacuated sufficiently.

Some of the more common causes of constipation include prescription medications, pregnancy, lack of dietary fibre, lack of exercise, and being of an older age.[1]  The longer constipation is left untreated, the more constipation one can become.  Luckily colonics can safely, easily, and quickly resolve this condition.  The colonic will introduce water into the colon and soften any hardened impaction.  At this point, the waste matter can be evacuated with little effort, clearing away toxic debris and hardened stool.

Reduces Gas and Bloating

Gas and bloating most often go hand in hand.  When we have excessive gas, we will have uncomfortable and sometimes even painful bloating.  A small amount of gas in the bowel is a normal byproduct of the digestive process and a completely natural part of any healthy colon.  Gases that are produced in excess however are problematic and are a sure indicator of a dirty environment in the large intestine.  Oftentimes, gases become trapped in the colon as the result of obstructions caused by fecal impactions.   These trapped gases are what can cause disproportionate pressure in the colon and lead to bloating and even abdomen distention.  When we are not able to thoroughly digest the food we take in and undigested proteins are left in the colon, putrefactive bacteria will break down this material and this too will produce toxic gases.[2]

The solution to helping dramatically reduce this cycle of gas and bloating is to clean the colon and keep the colon clean. In this case, it is easy to see the benefits of colonic irrigation.  In a short time, a colonic can clean the colon of old toxic debris and trapped gases, providing fast comfort and relief.  Another great benefit of colonics!

Eliminates Candida and Parasites

The presence of candida and parasites in the bowel are yet another indicator of both a dirty colon and sluggish digestion. An overgrowth of things like yeast and parasites within the gastrointestinal tract can be the cause of a multitude of different symptoms of illness throughout the entire body and be a detriment to good health.

Microorganisms like Candida albicans and parasites feed off waste matter and foods that we cannot completely break down and assimilate ourselves. Candida albicans will feed off fermenting undigested carbohydrates and sugars that have only been partially broken down while parasites feed off of putrefying undigested proteins.[3]

Another great benefit of colonic irrigation is the relationship between colonics and Candida – specifically, how colonics help treat Candida. By cleansing the colon of this fermenting and putrefying matter both fungus and parasites will no longer have their food source or an unclean environment in which they can thrive in. Colonics will clear away old impacted fecal matter, partially digested waste along with both parasites and yeast alike.

Woman runningIncreases Energy

We are exposed to varying levels of toxins every day. They are all around us, in the food we eat, the air that we breathe and the water we drink. They are in many of the products we use, from household cleaning supplies, personal care items, and throughout our homes.  When we are inundated with these toxins, it can become difficult for the body to keep up and keep the body cleansed.  We can become overburdened by environmental toxins and the toxins that we may be consuming in our food.

When exposed to too many toxins the body can develop many maladies, including feelings of fatigue and lack of energy.  A simple remedy for these issues is colonics. Colonic irrigation will quickly release large amounts of toxins and waste harboured in the colon. With fewer toxins sitting in the body, the more energized we will feel.

This wonderful benefit of colonic irrigation will be felt even more so since the digestive process itself requires vast amounts of energy.  The digestive tract is constantly working to move through digestive material, even when we are asleep.

A great benefit of colonic therapy is that it will greatly help the colon to eliminate waste. This supportive process of a colonic will free up all the energy that the colon would otherwise need to spend on attempting to break up and move out all of the old hardened fecal stored in the body.  A task the body is truly unable to do on its own, especially in the case of severe constipation.

Heals Skin

One of the greatest and most well-known benefits of colonic irrigation is its ability to heal skin disorders.  The skin is our body’s largest organ of elimination and shares the job of waste excretion with the colon, the lungs, both kidneys, and the liver.  Roughly 2 pounds of waste is shed every day by the skin through sweat alone.[4]   If any of the other channels of elimination are blocked and overloaded with toxicity, the skin may be required to take up the burden.  When this happens, the skin can become inflamed and irritated, and we can see the development of a multitude of skin conditions.

When there is a problem with the skin, it is not only necessary to care for the external but the internal as well.  When we can support the other organs of elimination and they are less burdened by toxins, the skin can heal.  Colonics can be a great way to support the colon and rid the body of high toxicity in a relatively short period of time.  Ultimately, this type of colonic cleansing will help all manner of inflamed skin to heal.  Many skin conditions including acne, psoriasis and eczema have cleared up nicely upon completing a thorough cleansing of the bowels.[5]

Weight lossSupports Weight Loss

One of the many interesting facts about colonics is that colonics is also a great tool that can support healthy weight loss. Carrying excess weight and fat in the body can leave us more susceptible to the many disease conditions that could otherwise be prevented.  It can also make it very difficult to move and stay physically active.

To successfully lose weight there must be a lifestyle change, and it will most likely require dietary changes as well as an increased level of physical activity.  A benefit of colonic irrigation is that it will help with weight loss.  One of the main reasons that weight can be so difficult to lose for many people is the fact that the body uses fat as a means to store toxins and keep those toxins away from the vital systems, organs and glands in the body. Fat will act as a buffer against internal toxemia.  Knowing this, it is profoundly helpful to detoxify the body in order to lose weight effectively and easily.

Colonics will effectively rid the body of the pounds of fecal matter and toxic debris that have resided in the colon for some time. This will not only reduce overall weight but will also help to flatten the stomach and shrink the waistline. This benefit of colonic irrigation can be seen and used in any healthy weight loss regime. A colonic is of special benefit, especially when wanting to get a fresh start to attaining weight loss goals.

Eases Seasonal Allergies and Asthma

Colonic irrigation can be extremely beneficial when working on easing symptoms associated with seasonal allergies and asthma.  Seasonal allergies and asthma are often the results of longstanding inflammation and sensitivity that can dramatically worsen when exposed to known allergens or common irritants.[6] In these conditions, the body and the immune system will produce a hyper response to something that would normally not be the cause for alarm.  Depending on the severity of these conditions, these disorders can even be life-threatening.[7]

In many cases, the inflammation and sensitivity are caused by a long-standing accumulation of toxins in the body and when coming in contact with more toxicity those with allergies and asthma are unable to handle any additional irritation.  For instance, exposure to pollution, smoke and numerous chemicals can all cause reactions.

Once again, colonics can be of great benefit. A colonic can help reduce the overall toxic load that the body is constantly dealing with. Colonics will do this by ridding the body of the internal toxemia that is occurring at the level of the bowels. Colonic irrigation will benefit the body by reducing the internal toxic burden and ease the over responses that can occur when in contact with environmental irritants and toxicity.
