Colon cleansing is also known by other terms like colonic irrigation or colonic hydrotherapy. It involves flushing the colon with fluids to remove stomach waste. It’s a simple treatment that is ancient, and the benefits are numerous. This is based on the various research that indicates that digestive waste can be a toxin to the body.
Colon cleansing is conducted by a qualified Crawley Botox Clinic professional and is called a colonic hygienist. The colonic hygienist performs the colon cleanse while you rest on a table. This involves sending approximately 60 litres of fluid through a tube into the rectum.
Toxins and waste are then expelled through a different tube, and the process is repeated.
You can buy at-home colon irrigation products which are online or in your local drug store. Although we strongly recommend you do not attempt these DIY methods.
Colonic hygienists say you have numerous benefits by removing the toxins from your digestive system. Some research shows colonic cleanse can lead to weight loss, better digestion, increased energy, and a clearer thought process.
A pilot study was done in 2016 noted improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms after colonic irrigation in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
Talk to your doctor first. Some people may be at a greater risk for complications.
Drink plenty of fluids. Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration both before and after your cleanse.
Ensure only new, disposable equipment and protective gear is used. Make sure your hygienist has a proper disinfection routine and uses disposable equipment whenever possible. Colon cleansing equipment can transmit bacteria if not properly sterilized.
In addition to the traditional irrigation, colon cleanses many products on the market claim to deliver similar benefits through oral supplements.
These may come in capsules, powders, or teas and include plant fibres and natural laxatives. If you opt for supplements, read the package directions carefully and discuss the ingredients with your doctor.
Some foods contain what is known as resistant starches, which are types of sugar that are difficult for the body to break down. These starches remain mostly undigested and become bulk in the stool.
The more bulk there is in the stool, the sooner the bowel is stimulated into action, possibly helping cleanse the colon.
Foods high in resistant starches include:
- potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams
- sugar beets
- vegetable stems, tubers, and roots
- buckwheat and millet
- al dente pasta
- white bread
- cornflakes and muesli
- sugar cane
- sweet corn
- green bananas
- beer and cider
Unlike other starches, digesting resistant starches produces compounds that research shows which may help:
- prevent colon cancer
- improve macronutrient regulation
- alter hormone levels, potentially improving mental and physical health
- prevent or control diabetes
- prevent or control obesity
Research has shown that regularly drinking lemon juice can have a positive effect on digestive health.
It seems that people experience the most benefit when they drink it on an empty stomach, which allows the compounds in the lemon to interact more easily with the gut mucosa.
Having a clean colon is crucial for certain screening tests, such as colonoscopies. Most people receiving colonoscopies have to consume a colon cleansing preparation the night before the procedure.
In a 2015 studyTrusted Source on colonoscopies, one group of participants received a preparation of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, in addition to the standard fluid mixture of polyethylene glycol (PEG). The participants who took vitamin C had better bowel preparation than those in the other groups.
Lemon juice is high in vitamin C so it can act as an effective natural colon cleanser.
