Spring Rain Hydrotherapy Colonics March Is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

The colon is one of the most vulnerable organs in the human body. The large intestine (or colon or bowel) is the body’s main channel for eliminating solid waste matter. This 5-foot tube has an outer lining of muscles and an inner lining of mucous. By the time food particles reach the large intestine, most of the nutrients have been absorbed by the body. Beneficial bacteria absorb what the body needs from ingested food, expelling the remaining waste from the body through a squeezing movement called peristalsis until it reaches the rectum.

    Unfortunately, some foods and other things that are ingested leave behind a layer of waste residue toxin that forms a tough coating and plagues the colon’s walls. This coating can slowly and silently poison the body, manifesting in many different common ailments, such as constipation, insomnia, headaches, indigestion, eczema, lethargy, gas and bloating, but also more serious problems, like arthritis, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, menstrual irregularity, colitis and colon cancer.

    How can someone be sure that 100 percent of the nutrients that the body does not need are being eliminated? How much is rejected, how much sticks to the lining of the intestines, and what will this mean 10 or 20 years down the road? While lifestyle and early screening for cancer play an important role in colon health, intervention, maintenance and prevention are the keys.         Linda Salyer, of Spring Rain Hydrotherapy, guides patients on their journey to find relief and avoid future complications by administering colonic therapy. Clearing the body of toxic waste, this procedure restores the muscles of the colon and maintains strength and stimulation.

    While especially beneficial for patients with immune-compromised conditions, such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue, Epstein-Barr and candida, many athletes also opt for colon therapy to increase metabolic efficiency and stamina. Using this treatment before or after surgical procedures, fasting or a liver/gallbladder flush will optimize effectiveness and speed up results and recovery time.

What will Spring Rain Therapy colonics do for the colon?

    Cleanse the colon: Breaks down toxic excrement so it can no longer harm the body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Toxins built up over a long period are gently removed in a series of treatments. The colon will begin to operate as it was intended. In this sense, a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.

    Exercise the colon muscles: The buildup of toxins weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristalsis (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material.

    Reshape the colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape because the colon is a muscle and it will enlarge due to the buildup of unreleased toxins. This in turn can cause more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with massage techniques of the colon therapist, helps to eliminate bulging pockets of fecal matter and narrowed, spastic constrictions, enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
