Welcome back to the Wholistic Natural Health Australia Blog. This is part 3 of cleansing your life.
Over the past couple of blogs, we looked at areas of toxicity. We addressed everything from buying new items for the home and personal use in Part 1 (Eliminating toxins in your environment) and even looked at toxic people and dentistry in Part 2.
Now let’s look at one of the most important organs in the body- the colon. Also known as the large intestine. A fortress that tries everything to protect you from toxicity.
Now let’s look at the main woes of society. Losing weight, staying healthy, ridding yourself of illness and being emotionally and physically well. One of the best ways to support these goals is through colon hydrotherapy. Colon hydrotherapy (known as Colonics) has been utilised for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks, the ancient Egyptians and many other civilisations utilised colon hydrotherapy. There are many fallacies spinning wildly out of control about them though. Colonics are unfortunately spoken about often with fear and mistrust. Let’s clear up some of that for you now.
Myths about Colon Hydrotherapy
Myth 1: You are going to flush out your good bacteria.
Colonics actually don’t flush enough of the good bacteria in proportion to how much bad bacteria is released in your waste. The colon needs to be hydrated, otherwise you will reabsorb toxins as you dehydrate. Bacteria lives in your gut and in your colon and so hydrating them flushes out the bad bacteria and promotes good bacteria. The result is that you’ll find waste is eliminated faster, more easily and if you do colonics at least once a month, you’ll be taking out a lot of toxic load both physically and emotionally.
Myth 2: My bowel will get lazy and won’t eliminate without a colonic.
Colon hydrotherapy actually encourages the natural motion of peristalsis and supports your body to eliminate on a regular basis. Whether the open or closed system (there are two types), your therapist will guide you on how to work with your body’s peristalsis to keep a healthy digestive system.
We discussed earlier the myths around colon hydrotherapy. After reading about what animal products can do to your body, you be wondering how to release some of the toxic load you have till now consumed. Colon hydrotherapy is one of the best ways to immediately give your body relief.
During your first colonic treatment, you may feel a bit of discomfort as the water hydrates the large intestine (the colon). This hydration promotes the excretion of toxins. Many people in the first one to two treatments do not experience much apart from this discomfort. It is only once the colon is sufficiently hydrated that it can begin to release parasites, toxins and debris.
No matter which system (open or closed) you use, the therapist should be able to offer you some other ways to relieve the discomfort. Hot water bottles, abdominal massage, warm oil compresses and the like can all help you to clear this period of discomfort and help you release toxins and parasites. Do not fear hydrating your colon, if you dehydrate it you will certainly be looking at appendicitis, cancer, toxicity or a range of other illnesses.
The colon works in conjunction with other major organs and systems of the body such as the liver, the lymphatic system, the kidneys, the spleen and the appendix. Clearing any hidden nasties in your colon will help you treat other major health issues such as candida, inflammation, viral load and parasites.
To cleanse your life inside and out, it is easy to become overwhelmed. There’s an old saying, ‘nothing really worth doing comes easily’. After all, do world champion sprinters just decide that one day they are going to be the fastest man or woman in the world? They practice many hours a day for many years (often from an early age) and so many don’t make the grade. It’s unlikely that tomorrow you will decide to be healthy and cleansed and at the snap of your fingers, it will happen. There are, however, many steps you can take that we have covered here to regain control of your life, your health and your body.
