A clean, strong and well functioning colon is essential to maintaining optimal health. On the other hand, an unclean, weak and poorly functioning colon, is a breeding ground for disease, sickness and death. Unfortunately, healthy colons typically outnumbered by poorly functioning colons, but that doesn’t have to be the case with regular colonic treatments, helping people to maintain their overall health.
Serious health problems can arise if the colon is not properly cared for, and based on the statistics, colon health care in this country has been woefully neglected. In the United States alone, over 400 million dollars is spent annually on laxatives. This year an estimated 130,000 new cases of colon and rectal cancer will be diagnosed, making it the fourth most common form of cancer in Americans. Of this population, approximately 44% will die as a result of the disease! Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, second only to lung cancer in men, and breast cancer in women. At least two million Americans suffer colon related diseases including colitis, ileitis, diverticulitis. Astoundingly, approximately 100,000 colostomy surgeries are performed each year!
Most people have no any idea how much old, hardened, fecal matter is lodged within their colons. Many experts now believe the average person has 5 to 20 pounds of accumulated waste matter in their colon. Colonics help flush the colon and get rid of the stagnant waste. While colon hydrotherapy treatment is not necessarily considered a weight loss procedure, many people report significant weight losses after completing a series of colon hydrotherapy treatments.
