Let’s debunk some common myths and fabrications made by naysayers about Colon Hydro Therapy AKA Colonics so you can understand why you shouldn’t fear such a valuable, effective and life changing treatment.
Let’s start by stating why I AM QUALIFIED to make the following statements in support of this treatment, colon health, & digestive track. I encourage you to ask naysayers what there qualifications are as well. As we are inundated with miss shared information in our culture.
FACTS about me:
1. I was trained and certified in Internal Cleansing, Colon Hydro Therapy and the Lymphatic System.
2. I have been continuing my education and working in the wellness field for almost 17 years and have worked with over 20k people professionally.
3. I interned with the Mother of Industry and author of first book ever written on internal cleansing Millan Chessman, as well as Internationally proclaimed Trainer and Board Member Roxanne Watson.
4. I’m partnered with the #1 School Internationally for Internal Cleansing and Lymphatic Drainage training the most qualified Therapists world wide.
5. I am third generation and have seen these treatments changing peoples live since the ripe old age of FIVE YEARS OLD!
Myth # 1: Your colon will no longer work on its own if you do Colonics!
FICTION: This is just anatomically incorrect. The Colon is a muscle and introduction of water naturally encourages peristalsis (the flexing of the muscle) which in turn strengthens the muscle. Saying your colon won’t work on it’s own if you do colonics would be like saying lifting weights will atrophy your muscles. It’s just incorrect.
Myth #2: You can become addicted to Colonics!
FACT: Are you addicted to feeling your best? Are you addicted to eating healthy and your healthy lifestyle? Are you addicted to going to the gym or yoga? You WILL feel amazing after doing Colon Hydro Therapy and you will always want to maintain that feeling by continuing doing them. A monthly maintenance plan will keep you feeling your best as well as help prevent Illness and Disease! So if this is their definition of “addicted” then me and my clients will have to admit.....we’re addicts!
Myth #3: Colonics will get rid of all the GOOD Bacteria in your colon!
Inconclusive: All the research studies done on this topic have remained inconclusive. Not only can we not quantify if/how much good bacteria is lost during a colonic we cannot even quantify how much good bacteria is required for proper digestive health, which is unfortunate. That being said, within the colon lies the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and in my professional opinion the benefit of getting rid of the BAD and the UGLY outweighs any threat of releasing "possibly" some of the GOOD. So after your colonic do one of the following: take a probiotic to increase the healthy flora in the gut regularly, get a prescription for a probiotic additive at the end of your colonic if possible, and drink/eat vegetables and probiotic dense foods to relieve any concern you may have on the topic. These 3 easy fixes seem like much more reasonable options then just ignoring the root of the problem altogether.
Myth #4: Getting a Colonic can rupture the colon!
FICTION: I cannot state enough how fictional and fear mongering this statement is and although I hate fear mongering I must state the truth. There are many more cases of complications caused by colonoscopies reported then EVER reported regarding Colon Hydro Therapy. In Fact, we have never had ONE verified or reported rupture from a Colonic EVER! But like with all things I would always recommend you see a therapist who is qualified to be rendering you a treatment, has proper education and certifications and is skilled in their field.
