March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Colorectal issues affect both men and women of all racial and ethnic groups. For men, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer after prostate and lung cancers. For women, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer after breast and lung cancers. Unfortunately, statistics now show a rise in colorectal cancer among younger people in their twenties and thirties. Colorectal cancer can be prevented with recommended screenings, and can be treated if detected early.
Colon hydrotherapy is also known as a colonic, or colonic irrigation. It is a safe, effective method of cleansing the colon (large intestine) of waste material.
When you have colon hydrotherapy, temperature and pressure regulated water is gradually introduced into the colon and released repeatedly during a session. This process softens and loosens built-up fecal matter, which is eventually evacuated from the body. The intestinal tract is a continuous tube from the mouth to the anus, and each part of the tube has a specific function to perform. Colon Hydrotherapy is safe, and useful for many digestive complaints.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy:
* cleanses, tones, and re-educates the bowel
* helps to empty pockets of the colon where old fecal deposits can lie
* improves muscular contraction
* helps to return the colon muscles to their original form through re-education
* may help with disease prevention and digestive health issues
* improves transit time so that digestion occurs within 24 hours
