Colon Hydrotherapy – often called colonic irrigation or colon cleansing – is a procedure in which the rectum and large intestine are cleansed using safe, gentle infusions of warm water. It is a procedure that has a long history, as Constance Jones – Colon Hydrotherapy in Manchester is well-aware of.
The notion of there being value to the internal water cleansing of the colon has been widely accepted since ancient times, with references initially found in Egyptian texts. Water as a healing element in both eastern and western medical traditions has continued to be practiced in various ways throughout the centuries. Medical science recognizes that much of our body’s tremendous healing ability depends on water. Water’s healing potential is still available today as part of an alternative approach to well being through Colon Hydrotherapy.
Nonetheless, despite the fact that numerous studies have shown no adverse effects of this procedure, and that earlier studies dismissing its effectiveness are based on flawed designs or lack statistical significance, it is still largely ignored or misunderstood by most of the traditional medical establishment. Perhaps because we consider this a taboo subject in our culture, or simply that we have not had the funds to conduct research studies in the US.
Increasingly, though, the tide is turning when it comes to Colon Hydrotherapy. A recent study conducted in Japan’s Yoko Clinic showed not only that this procedure has no adverse side-effects, but also that doctors there are exploring how to incorporate colonics into their protocols for a variety of ailments.
Although we Colon Hydrotherapists cannot make such claims, the naturopaths with whom we affiliate do. One Connecticut naturopath said this: “Many people can benefit from a gentle colon cleansing. The increase in the chemical and metal toxins introduced into our environment in the last fifty years has contributed to a dramatic increase in the incidence of auto-immune diseases. In an attempt to detoxify, our bowels, kidneys and liver are being overloaded. In addition, the over-processed Standard American Diet (SAD) is severely lacking in fiber and high in saturated fats. As a result, our eliminative channels have become blocked or dysfunctional. These factors combined weaken the immune system and increase our vulnerability to virus, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections.”
