Colon Cleansing Removes Toxins from the Colon
Colon cleansing is an alternative medicine technique intended to remove toxins from the colon and intestinal tract. There are two types of colon cleansing: colon hydrotherapy (also known as colonics or colonic irrigation), and oral cleansing.
Colon hydrotherapy uses enemas to inject water, often mixed with herbs or other liquids, into the colon. Oral cleansing uses dietary fiber, herbs, supplements, or laxatives. It is done to clear out accumulations of materials that line the walls of the large intestine, which often cause general ill-health.
Colon Cleansing has been practiced since ancient times. For the chronically and morbidly obese, colon cleansing is a good idea to clear out one’s system to make it easier to start and maintain weight loss. A quick Google-search result in some surprising testimonials from people who have gone through a colon-cleanse, as well as some “disgusting” photos. It just goes to show how much toxins tend to accumulate in our bodies.
