Over 70% of the immune system is located in the gut, along with every neurotransmitter that’s also found in the brain. This includes 90% of the production of serotonin, the neurotransmitter which is responsible for producing a sense of happiness and well-being, as well as supporting cognitive functions such as memory and learning.
Ideally, the body should have 1-2 bowel movements per day depending on the volume and type of food consumed. When the colon becomes sluggish from constipation, waste builds up and hardens, narrowing the elimination pathway. Not only does this damage the integrity of the intestinal lining, it provides the optimal breeding ground for parasites and pathogenic bacteria like candida albicans to thrive. The waste products from these organisms are neurotoxins and cause debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive difficulties, depression, balance problems, nail fungus, insomnia and more. As digestion becomes increasingly compromised, it becomes impossible to absorb the proper amount of nutrients from the diet, leading to further breakdown and chronic disease.
Integrative Medical Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle and thorough way to remove stagnate waste from the colon. Using sterilized and disposable equipment, warm filtered water is cycled into the colon allowing the impaction to dissolve and be carried away through an entirely closed system. At the same time, a certified colon hydrotherapist will gently massage the abdomen at key acupressure points to ensure a full release. Each 45-minute session is conducted by a therapist certified by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT). Depending on the severity of the case, more than one session may be necessary to provide full evacuation.
