Hydrotherapy for the colon might sound like a modern trend, but it’s been around in some form for about 100 years. Today’s colon irrigations work a bit like enemas, but with more water. You lie on a special table while a gravity-based reservoir or low-pressure pump flushes out gallons of water through a tiny tube placed in your rectum. During the gentle, chemical-free process, the warm water removes gas, fecal matter, and mucus from your intestine.
At Delta Medical Weight Management Center in Southaven, Mississippi, Dr. Ulric Duncan provides hydrotherapy for the colon to help clear out your system when you’re seeking detoxification or weight loss.
Improved bowel health
While the body and bowel movements tend to do a good job of detoxifying and doing away with food wastes, neutralizing toxins, and keeping unwanted substances from reentering tissues and blood, we believe that colon hydrotherapy can enhance these benefits.
Like the many other proponents of this type of colon cleansing, we provide this treatment as a means of cleaning out your colon for reduced inflammation and improved overall digestive health. These attributes may be especially important if you haven’t been able or inclined to take other steps toward positive bowel health, such as consuming the recommended 25-30 grams of fiber per day. Many people in the US fall short of this.
Increased energy levels
Improved digestive health lends itself to improved energy levels, so you’ll feel better throughout each day. This is especially true if you have a history of eating a typical modern diet, high in animal protein, refined sugar, and unhealthy fats. Emotional stress and inactivity also contribute to poor energy levels and digestive problems. A cleaner colon followed by improved lifestyle habits may be just what you need to get and stay on a more vibrant, energized path.
Better overall health
Colon hydrotherapy can make you more mindful of your body’s needs and your daily lifestyle habits. Once you’ve obtained better digestive health, you’ll be more likely to care for your body in a range of ways that benefit your overall wellness, such as eating more nutritious foods, managing stress, and staying appropriately active. All of this can lead to a stronger immune system as well as lower risk for chronic disease and undesired weight gain.
