Is Colon Cleansing Really Beneficial?

Elimination. This is one of the reason why we sometimes have to use the rest room. But there are ways of elimination that a different kind of rest room is used and this is where you see some colon cleansing procedures. This is called an enema room or colonic room.
One of the strategies to help lose weight is cleansing the colon, or the large intestine. Once the body gets rid of the long staying waste or toxins, it's a lot easier for the body to do its process in losing weight. It can be done by the simple enema or coffee enema, or through the use of a colonic machine. However , it is still best to consult your physician before doing this because there are also some contraindications to this, such as: bleeding hemorrhoids, recent abdominal surgery, colon polyps or cancer, uncontrolled hypertension, and even pregnancy is a contraindication.
Colon cleansing is something that helps to enhance the process of our own detoxification. This should not be done as a regular activity replacing the normal body activity of elimination through the colon.

The following are some of the many benefits of a colon detoxification:
  • It helps to normalize bowel movement.
  • It helps to clear up the skin from having recurrent skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, eczema
  • It helps to remove excessive abdominal bloating because of frequent gas accumulation
  • It makes you feel lighter and clean
  • it helps to naturally bring down high cholesterol and triglyceride levels especially if done together with a diet modification
  • it's a good jump-start to a weight loss program
It is always recommended to take a probiotic (good bacteria) supplement as a nutritional support during a colon cleansing and at least one week after the colon detoxification.

Here's to your healthy colon!
