What are the Methods and Benefits of Colon Cleansing?

Colon Cleansing

is perceived by many today as one of the available preventive mechanisms to a lot of colorectal diseases including cancer.

In the United States alone, about 160,000 people get colorectal Cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) resulting in about 62,070 deaths annually.

Why is Colon Cleansing Recommended?

It is believed that years of eating processed, non-fibrous food and meat with chemicals and artificial hormones can cause remains of undigested food stay back around the colon in the large intestine. These foods rot, decay inside the colon and harden up. This is especially true for people suffering from chronic constipation.

The concept of “autointoxication” was thus introduced. Autointoxication means self poisoning. It is believed that the decaying, fecal matter trapped in the large intestine and colon for days, months and years slowly poisons the body. The body loses its ability to absorb vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals provided by food.

What are the Methods Used to Clean the Colon?

  • Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Irrigation

    – It is the process by which pure warm water infused with medicines and herbs is made to pass through the colon and large intestine and flush out the toxins.

  • Herbal Colon Cleansing Supplements

    – Combinations of various herbs which have laxative properties are often recommended for colon cleansing. Psyllium husk based herbal products are very common.

  • Enemas

    – Liquids administered through the anus to the rectum and colon results in expansion of the intestinal passage. The resultant pressure pushes the accumulated fecal matter outside.

  • Oxygen Based Colon Cleansing

    – This is by far the most effective method of colon cleansing. The procedure used is called oxidation-reduction reaction. Ozonated (ozone is a purer form of oxygen) magnesium oxidesto, is the chemical compound which melts the toxic wastes into liquid or gas state.

Benefits of Colon Cleansing
