Colon therapy releases toxins, cleanses the blood, stimulates the immune system, and aids in restoring the pH balance in the body," says Connie Allred, President of the American Colon Therapy Association. Colon therapy can help relieve a wide range of symptoms related to colon dysfunction, including:
- Bad breath
- Coated tongue
- Sinus and/or lung congestion
- Skin problems
- Loss of concentration
Colon therapy also helps to re establish regular bowel movements by restoring muscle tone and normal peristalsis. According to Dr. Collins, as the squeezing action of peristalsis moves the blood and lymph in the region of the colon, the cells lining the colon excrete toxins and waste products into the both the colon and bloodstream for elimination.
Peristalsis also stimulates the liver to produce more bile. Increased bile production aids the absorption of lipids (liquid fats) and fat-soluble vitamins, aids in the removal of immune complexes (substances formed when antibodies attach to antigens), and assist in the breakdown of cholesterol. Increased bile production also induces proper blood clotting and helps prevent the production of gall stones.
Colon therapy is most effective when used in conjunction with special exercises and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, breathing work and homeopathy. It can be used for a wide range of conditions as no body system works well with a mass of toxins to divert healthy natural functionality.
In the case of hypertension, the muscular movements initiated by colon therapy help to control blood pressure by regulating the autonomic nervous system. Arthritis patients benefit because of the direct stimulation of the immune system. This may help to remove immune complexes from the joints, a major factor in rheumatoid arthritis.
Colon therapy can also help rid the body of many forms of parasites without a need for the heavy drugs usually prescribed to treat them.
Often stems from parasites eating your nutrition instead of you absorbing your nutrition. Toxins overwhelm the natural energy systems of the body leaving one tired and slow to recover form activity.
Mechanical means of colon therapy is via a plastic or metal tube inserted in the rectum and water entering the colon to flush it out. It mimics an ancient method of using a long hollow reed and a gourd full of water. This can be very, very effective for the large intestine. Highly recommended
Colorectal Cancer: Questioning the Digital Exam. New research from the University of Sydney Concord Hospital in Australia has shown that office-based digital rectal exams may not be useful in detecting colorectal cancer. The research, which was presented on May 19 at the Digestive Disease Week's annual meeting, suggests that patients skip in-office rectal exams, which are unpopular for both doctors and patients, and wait for a more thorough examination with a colonoscopy. Physicians use a gloved finger to detect suspicious growths in a non-sedated patient in digital rectal exams.
A form of colon therapy that helps clean the large and small intestine is oxy cleanse.
It is a good idea to do a semi annual 3 -10 day liver cleanse.
Another way to detox that works well in conjunction with colon therapy.
