The Truth About Poop: Constipation & Hydrotherapy

Do you suffer from constipation on a regular basis? It’s not fun. And you’re not alone! Over four million people suffer from constipation in the United States, and roughly two million doctor visits a year make it one of the most common gastrointestinal issues today. Almost everyone, at one time, has been constipated.

Constipation is a condition in which it is difficult, and even painful, to have a bowel movement. People suffering from constipation complain of hard or pellet-like stools, fewer than 3 bowel movements per week and straining with bowel movements. They normally feel bloated, uncomfortable, and sluggish. The condition is often considered temporary and non-threatening, however if it is undiagnosed or left untreated it can lead to many other health issues. Medical problems that are caused by constipation include headaches, fatigue, moodiness and depression, hemorrhoids, anal fissures or tears, gas, lower back pain, skin problems, body odor, indigestion and abdominal pains.

Accumulated toxins may be absorbed into the system and over time may stress the organs of elimination, which are the liver, kidneys, skin, and large intestine. The toxins move around and around in the lymph system and blood, slowly causing auto-intoxication which then leads to disease.

Traditionally, doctors typically prescribe laxatives, drugs or surgery for constipation relief. These methods will only temporarily treat the symptoms and there many dangerous and harmful side effects that you may experience with these treatments.

One of the safest and most effective treatments of chronic constipation is colon hydrotherapy, a safe and gentle flow of warm purified water into our large intestines without using pressure. This gentle internal bath assists your body in the natural detoxification process and is the safest and the most effective way to wake up your digestive system and get it working properly.

Many people likely have years of impacted waste material in their colon. Colon hydrotherapy gently detoxifies and cleanses your system by moving the accumulated waste out of your body quickly, giving your body a chance to naturally refocus on rejuvenating itself. It will assist the body to eliminate pounds of unwanted toxic fecal matter and help to restore health and vitality to your entire body. By removing these toxic waste materials, the systems of your body, including the digestive and immune systems, are able to operate more effectively and efficiently.

Cleansing the colon with Colon Hydrotherapy is an important part of the detoxing process because those toxins need to exit the body, and a backed up colon can cause them to be reintroduced into the body, rather than exiting as planned. Sticking with fruits and vegetables even after the detox program is completed is a good way to keep things moving.

Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer-related death in U.S. A healthy, clean colon is the first step to achieving your optimal level of health! You don’t have to live with chronic constipation.
