We all know that water is vital for every function of the body. Regulating body temperature, preventing constipation and flushing waste products from the kidneys and liver, are just a few of the roles of proper hydration. In addition, according to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, your workout, and the weight loss you hope to accomplish, are compromised if you are dehydrated.
Most people recognize these signs of dehydration: thirst, chapped lips, and dry skin and mouth. In fact, we often think we’re hungry when we are actually thirsty. A good tip is to drink a glass of water before snacking and wait a bit to see if you really want that bag of chips!
Colon hydrotherapy’s main purposes are hydration and elimination. Colon waste absorbs the water like a sponge and the gentle water pressure activates the body’s wavelike elimination process called peristalsis.
Frequent constipation which can have many causes, one of which is dehydration, can cause the colon to “forget” how to eliminate properly. By encouraging peristalsis, colon hydrotherapy assists in reestablishing the balance. A series of colonics can help to restore the body’s natural process of elimination.
