Guest Post By Joyce Rockwood, CCH
As a colon hydrotherapist since 1997, the most common question I get asked is “What are the benefits of colon hydrotherapy?” Truth be told, the list of benefits trails as long as any line at a Bruno Mars concert! So while the following three are just the tip of the iceberg, I believe they’ll be enough to help you understand why an increasing number of people are incorporating this ancient holistic practice to their lifestyle on a regular basis.
Colon Hydrotherapy 101: What’s Up Down Below?
Colon Hydrotherapy assists your body in eliminating excess solid and gaseous waste matter. A properly administered colonic can be equivalent to relieving your body of several or more bowel movements. You can compare a colonic to taking out the trash that has built up in your kitchen over many days. But when it comes to the colon, we are actually talking about the accumulation of waste matter over the course of months…and even years!
As far as trash goes, if left unattended, we all know it will eventually reek of rotting and fermenting food – and, unfortunately, I’m sure many of us know this odor actually has the potential to permeate our whole dwelling. This concept can be applied to waste harboring in human tissue (inclusive of our vital organs) and can be evidenced in something as simple as foul breath and as serious as tumors.
1. Colonic Hydrotherapy And A Power-House Immune System
- A healthy immune system is typically a reflection of a healthy bowel.
- A weakened immune system is often the reflection of years of accumulated waste matter in the tissue.
- This waste can permeate our bodies on a cellular level and can repeatedly flow through our circulatory system, thus undermining immune system function.
I help my clients understand this concept by relating it to the effects of a vehicle operating sluggishly because it hasn’t received an oil change at the ideal frequency of “every 3000 miles.” If we wait until 4000 miles or more, the oil will be very viscous and over-loaded with residue. This prevents the motor from functioning at its optimum level since it is now laden with the sludge, soot, and microscopic metal particles of its labors. Now, take a car that has had an oil change routinely, for years, at every 3000 miles or less: You will see that the vehicle’s performance is far superior because we have relieved the motor of enduring filthy oil by draining out or “cleansing out” the old and pouring in the new!
Remember, the state of the colon’s tissue actually impacts the function of all other organ function. Every colonic offers each cell in your entire body the opportunity to carry out its duties at a higher rate of efficiency. Waste removed. Cells renewed! This also allows for a reduction of inflammation and mucous formation in our cells, joints, and organs. Decreasing both of these factors creates a stronger immune system and prevents disease.
2. Colonics And Proper Weight Loss
- There is no doubt that waste = weight.
- From the great teachings of Professor Arnold Ehret, we have a formula:
P = V – O, which stands for: Power equals Vitality minus Obstruction.
- When we alleviate the body (Power) of unnecessary waste (Obstruction), we experience a lightness of being and a proper decrease in weight (Vitality).
Naturally, a healthy alkaline-based diet is one that I support and implement with my clients to help them experience the most optimum results from their colon hydrotherapy treatments. I believe in treating every client individually and so while some may not need to focus on “weight loss” per se, they always discover great insight from their “waste loss” and the new healthy horizons it presents such as: improved muscle tone and strength performance, increased energy, and an elevated spirit!
3. Colonics Alleviate Anxiety & Depression:
- Did you know that over 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut?
- This may explain why so many of my colon hydrotherapy clients often express how relaxed they feel right in the middle of a treatment!
- When we unburden the midsection of waste matter, our mood immediately shifts to a happier state as proper hormone function is restored.
Many of my clients have been able to work with their physicians to safely lower their medication(s) over time in tandem with my guidance. I suggest a transitional-alkaline diet and an individualized colonic protocol to support proper detoxification.
While there are no magic wands when it comes to healing the body, the benefits of colon hydrotherapy may make you feel as though you discovered one! I believe you will find colon hydrotherapy can truly assist you in reaching your health goals with more ease and grace, and also provide long-term results.
