Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe and effective therapeutic measure that cleanses and dilutes the toxic load in the colon, or large intestine, resulting in a whole body detox as it reduces burden on the liver.
It helps to boost the immune system, restore internal balance, and improves the overall health of the individual. It is also a safe and gentle infusion of purified water into the colon via a small rectal tube which sits in the rectum to flush out and remove accumulated wastes, toxins, gas, parasites and bad bacteria.
Colon cancer is the second leading terminal cancer in the United States as well as in Malaysia. Colon cancer appears more frequently in women while rectal cancer has a higher occurrence in men. Periodic cleansing could minimize the exposure of potential carcinogens to the colon walls, dilute the toxic concentration and facilitate toxin elimination. When there is a build-up of toxins in the body, it leads to a breakdown in one or more systems (such as liver, blood, skin and lymphatic), resulting in the potential for diseases to occur.
Modern day living creates circumstances such as poor diet (much processed foods and additives), stressful lifestyle and unhealthy personal habits such as smoking, alcohol and drugs, resulting in irregular and/or inefficient bowel movement. Food contaminants, pesticides, additives, hormones found in foods are all potentially toxic. Harmful matter in the air includes carbon dioxide, sulfur oxides, hydro carbides, asbestos and metals.
The concept of Colon Hydrotherapy stems from the principle that regular evacuation of the bowel is necessary to avoid ill-health. Warm filtered water is gravity fed down into the colon, removes all the wastes, toxins and bacteria as well as exercises the muscles to work more efficiently.
A series of treatments reshapes and tones the colon to resume its natural shape and function. At Shians Wellness Center, we integrate coffee enema into our Colon Hydrotherapy treatment, this allows you to have more efficient bowel movements and able to naturally go to the toilet at home. It is definitely a complementary therapy in our overall health care.
“All diseases begin in the gut.” – Hippocrates
Our colon is as long as we are tall – approximately 5 to 6 feet long and 2.5 inches in diameter. The average person, with normal weight for their height and age, may have 4 to 12 kilos of dried fecal matter in their colon! For someone who is overweight, they may be carrying around a lot more than that.
No matter if you are a vegetarian, vegan, do not smoke, drink or do drugs, or have a great fitness regime, your body is still producing wastes from the foods that you take in everyday. Some of them may still be stuck inside us for years!
Let’s start by reminding ourselves of the major causes of gut imbalances:
Most of us go through at least one if not a few of these causes on a daily basis, sometimes for many years. Our gut can only take so much damage, and when we hit our tipping point, we can start to experience symptoms that seem to come out of nowhere.
Colon Hydrotherapy is critically important as a cleansing and detoxification program because it prevents the body from reabsorbing toxins back into the bloodstream which continues to circulate throughout the whole body. This re-absorption can cause such discomforts such as nausea, headaches, foul-smelling breaths, joint pains and muscle aches. The longer the toxins stay in the gut, the higher risk of other areas of the body being compromised.
