Colon cleansing is not a new idea; in fact, it has been carried out for thousands of years by people across the world who have enjoyed the health benefits of the treatment. Today, the treatment is safer and simpler than ever. The human digestive system is over twenty feet long from end to end and converts the food you eat into the nutrition your body needs, before eliminating any leftover waste. It is a complex process that can easily be disturbed, causing familiar digestive problems. Colon hydrotherapy works with your body, helping to return your digestive system to a more natural, healthy state. This is done by introducing filtered, sterilized and temperature regulated water into the intestine where the food waste is loosened and eliminated through natural contractions of the intestinal muscles.
