The colon, which is sometimes known as the large intestine is around 5 foot long. It is the final part of our digestive system before the rectum. Its main role is to reabsorb fluids and process waste products from the body and prepare it for elimination.
It has been said for many hundreds of years that all disease begin in the colon. Our modern, Western lifestyle which typically includes poor diet and stress can cause our digestive system to not function how it should. This can affect not only our gut but our overall health.
Colonic hydrotherapy offers a full cleanse of the large intestine by gently introducing water into the colon. The aim is to not only restore the function of the colon but to exercise it in the process. This can be very beneficial for constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, skin issues and health issues, migraines, bloating and general well being and detoxification.
