Ways in Which Colon Therapy Helps in Resolving Digestion Problems

Digestion Problems

Believe it or not, digestion problems can resolve with colonics. One of the most sensitive systems of our body is the digestive system. It is exposed to many toxins, pollutants and impurities from the often unhealthy foods and drinks that we consume on a daily basis.

In time, the organ responsible for the final elimination of the body's wastes - the colon - will build up layers of toxins. When that happens, various diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and Leaky Gut syndrome, to name a few, begin to manifest their symptoms.

Fortunately, colon therapy can assist the colon in preventing or eliminating toxic buildup and preventing or eliminating some of the following digestion problems:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) include abdominal pain and gas, cramping and bloating, as well as diarrhea and constipation. It is a good idea to undergo colon therapy since IBS can lead to serious complications like hemorrhoid aggravation, acid reflux and even the inability to have a sex life. Colon therapy helps in the prevention of IBS by removing impacted wastes, flushing out the excess mucus, toxins and parasites, and assisting in easier bowel movements. All of these benefits point to better digestive health that, in turn, positively affects overall health.


Defined as infrequent bowel movements with hard stools that cause straining movements, constipation is a common problem. Fortunately, with colon therapy, it can be prevented or improved. It works by effectively and efficiently removing the stagnant and impacted fecal matter from the walls of the colon. In the process, the stool becomes soft but still firm, which allows for faster and easier passing through to the colon and out the rectum.

Candida is a type of yeast naturally occurring in the body, but most abundantly in the digestive system. When an overgrowth of Candida happens due to poor nutrition, compromised immune system, chronic use of prescription medications and anti-biotics, it can lead to many infections in the body. These include digestion problems, vaginitis, acne, sinusitis, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, chronic fatigue syndrome as well as constipation and diarrhea. Colon therapy helps in the treatment of these illnesses by restoring the balance between good and bad bacteria so that health is also regained.

Leaky Gut Syndrome

In Leaky Gut Syndrome , the lining of the bowels are damaged so that the gut wall literally leaks. As a result, the colon is exposed to higher risks for entry of toxins, microbes and other impurities that can eventually build up causing more and more diseases to ravage the body. Along with the use of herbal colon cleansing products, colon therapy detoxifies the colon by washing out the accumulated toxins and helps in the repair of the immune system. Ultimately, the damaged gut will be able to repair itself.

Crohn's Disease

An inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's affects tissues in the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the rectum, although the site of infection can be more commonly found in the ileum. Colon therapy may help by killing the parasites, expelling the mucus, and fighting off the infection in the affected area.

Colon hydrotherapy is extremely useful to those trying to detox from drugs and alcohol as it aids in the internal cleansing process, enhancing the elimination of toxins from the colon and circulatory system.
