Colon cleansing is a practice that dates back as far as ancient Greece. The colon is also known as the large intestine, and it is believed that food like meat and other difficult to digest foodstuffs remain in the colon and cause a buildup of mucus. This buildup then allows toxins to enter the bloodstream and causes poisoning of the body. This ancient theory is called autointoxication.
Whether or not colon cleansing is good for you is still a subject of debate as there is a great lack of research in the area of colon cleansing therapy. It is, however, understood that there are natural bacteria in the colon work to detoxify the waste left over from food. The liver also plays a big role in the detoxification of the blood and other circulatory systems of the body. The colon, like the skin, sheds cells regularly to prevent the buildup of mucus.
There are different methods of colon cleansing. If you are considering cleansing your colon, you might want to consider your options. Natural colon cleansing is divided into two sections. Firstly, you can use colon cleansers such as powders or liquids. These can be taken orally or through the rectum. The second method is through colon irrigation or what is known as high colonics. This involves a therapist administering a colon cleanse with a technology that washes your system out with water. One of the most healthy options of cleansing the colon is by sitting in the correct position when visiting the toilet. The Easy Squat has been designed by bioengineers to ensure the correct squatting position. This is a natural colon cleansing method.
What is natural colon cleansing? How does natural colon cleansing work?
If you are interested in trying out some of the different ways to cleanse your colon, you may start by taking some supplements or use an enema. There are many products on the market that you can either ingest orally or insert into the rectum that induce the colon to rid itself of its contents. Many of these products are available from health food shops, chemists, and even in the supermarket. They can include:
- Herbal teas
You can also see a therapist for a colon irrigation or high colonic session. These sessions usually last for about an hour, and a registered colon therapist will use a colonic machine to flush your colon. The colonic machine was invented over 100 years ago and is still in use today. Modern machines are, however, more technologically advanced. Colon irrigation is somewhat similar to an enema in that the therapist will use the machine to pump several litres of water into your rectum. The water is then released, in the same way, that you would have a normal bowel movement, and this cleans out all the water and waste. The process may be repeated.
What are the benefits of colon cleansing?
The benefits of colon cleansing are still up for debate, but it is said that by relieving constipation, colon cleansing indirectly relieves many other maladies associated with constipation. Colon cleansing is also said to help with fatigue, headaches, drug withdrawal and weight loss.
Remember if you choose to try a radical colon cleansing, get the advice of your medical professional, and make sure that your colon irrigation therapist is suitably qualified. The Easy Squat does not need the advice of a medical professional as it is a natural cleanser.
