Long Island Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy includes a range of holistic treatments designed to remove built-up toxins from the gastrointestinal system. Also referred to as colonic irrigation or simply colonics, these practices are used to help people suffering from problems such as constipation, diarrhea, appetite loss, exhaustion and stomach pain. Such symptoms occur when toxins, parasites and harmful bacteria collect in the lower intestine and colon.
Typically, colon hydrotherapy involves the use of injections of water to cleanse the digestive tract of waste. Some practitioners also incorporate herbal and homeopathic remedies to soothe and rejuvenate the body's natural cleansing systems. Colon hydrotherapy is frequently preceded by the use of fasts and special diets. Consuming the proper combination of fiber, vegetables, and herbs can help prepare the body for a colonic irrigation.
A colon hydrotherapist will customize treatment based on a client's diet, symptoms and general health. Many will provide recommendations for lifestyle changes and daily supplements that support ongoing strength and wellness for the gastrointestinal tract.
