Believe it or not, colon hydrotherapy has been used for many generations in diverse cultures. Why? It is a very efficient way to rid the body of unwanted toxins and waste which helps lead to good health. Colon Hygiene Institute, specialists of colon hydrotherapy in Las Vegas, discusses this history of colonics.

Colon Hydrotherapy history

The ‘Ebers Papyrus’, an Egyptian medical document dating back as early as 1500 B.C., outlines the multiple benefits of colon cleansing as recognized by the medical practitioners of the time. During this period, colon cleansing involved the use of a hollow reed to induce water flow into the rectum and was generally conducted somewhere in the local river system. Hundreds of years later, European populations adopted the practice to deal with different ailments. Then in the 1900’s, technology advanced colon hydrotherapy, and today most cultures practice it as a means to preventative health.

How Does It Work?

Colon hydrotherapy utilizes purified water and disposable contact elements, so it is quite safe and the dangers of infection and contamination are eliminated. During the treatment, the patient lays on a custom built bed while warm water passes through the rectum and into the large colon. The waste is discreetly passed through a closed system so no odor or visual contact is made. The skilled therapist will gently massage to help with the cleansing process and also will monitor the water pressure and temperature.

The why
So, why have many cultures over the years utilized colon hydrotherapy? The health benefits are endless. Many believe that good health starts in the gut, so cleaning the gut of toxic residue just makes good sense. Some of the benefits are:

  1. Lower risk of bowel cancer
  2. More productive absorption of nutrients
  3. Lowering the risk of many auto-immune disorders that begin in the gut
  4. Weight loss
  5. Lowering the risk of bowel disorders such at, IBS, constipation, hemorrhoids, gas and diarrhea

Luckily technology has advanced colon hydrotherapy so much so that we are no longer relying on moving river water like cultures past. To schedule an appointment or to ask questions and learn more about colon hydrotherapy in Las Vegas, please give Colon Hygiene Institute a call at 702-870-0704.
