If you’re into colon health, you may have probably heard of Colonics. If not, let us break it to you. Colonics otherwise known as colonic irrigation or colon hydrotherapy is a means of detoxifying the body by flushing the colon with water to remove build up waste and other toxic substances that are harmful to your general health.
How does waste build up in the colon?
When the colon gets irritated by chemicals, bad diet or other toxic substances like drugs, it produces mucus to protect itself. When it comes to a point that the mucus binds to the slurry of the processed foods, there will be a mucosal build up on the walls of the colon and that will restrict the passageway of feces.
The waste built up can then be the feasting ground for many harmful organisms that can cause ill health.
What happens in Colonics
