Practitioners state that it can provide many health benefits such as improving digestion and weight loss. However, doing a colon cleanse may include risks also. It should be practiced carefully, with sufficient knowledge of the potential risks. Colonic hydrotherapy involves flushing the colon with fluids to remove waste. Colon cleansing is generally done as a part of the preparation for medical procedures such as a colonoscopy. But, some alternative medicine practitioners suggest colon cleansing for other purposes, like detoxification.
In the process of a colon hydrotherapy, huge amounts of water, sometimes up to 60 liters and possibly some other substances, like herbs are flushed through your colon. This is done by using a tube that’s inserted into the rectum. In some cases, lesser amounts of water are used and are left to sit in the colon for a short time before being removed.
It is believed that toxins from your gastrointestinal tract may cause a series of health problems, like arthritis and high blood pressure. Proponents believe that colon hydrotherapy improves health by removing toxins, boosting your energy and improving your immune system. However, there’s no proof that colon cleansing makes these effects or is it actually beneficial for the purpose or not.
