Colon hydrotherapy in Columbus is a method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session.
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about. A healthy colon produces Vitamins B, and K and absorbs water. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.
"The elimination of undigested food and other waste is as important to health as the proper digestion of food," says gastrointestinal surgeon Leonard Smith, M.D. "Waste ferments and rots when it remains in the digestive system too long. That leads to the proliferation of bacterial toxins that trigger fatigue, headaches, and more."
Colon hydrotherapy can remove up to 20 pounds of stagnant waste, eliminating toxic buildup to allow for better absorption of nutrients (and significant weight loss!).
