Colonic irrigation as an alternative therapy
Colonic irrigation rids the body of all its toxins and should be the foundation for all therapy, but as there are no studies that support it, it now comes under the umbrella of alternative medicine. The intestines are not just important for digestion and waste elimination, but also for the overall health of the body. That's why colonic irrigation has always been considered a form of cure-all for human health.
Colonic irrigation using tap water
Colonic irrigation is able to remove dead cells, mucous, and bacteria that can cause infection, as well as allow drugs to be administered. It's a treatment that can be done by a doctor or at home. When doing it yourself, colonic irrigation is done with appropriate equipment that attaches to a tap, and introduces water into the rectum and flushes out any built-up material. The water gently relaxes the colon and stimulates the contraction of the intestines, which empties the water out through the draining tube.
A treatment recommended for irritable bowel syndrome and constipation
