The basics of Colonic Hydrotherapy and how you’ll benefit from treatment

Are you tired of feeling tired all the time? Are you suffering from stomach issues? Have you found that your toilet habits aren’t as regular as they used to be? You’ll be happy to hear that Colonic Hydrotherapy could be the answer to your troubles.

Naturally, due to the lifestyles we live and the food and drink we consume, our bodies build up toxic waste over the years. Storing this toxic waste in our bodies is not good for us, and it can lead to health problems later in life.

Did you know that the role of the colon in the digestive system is to absorb water and nutrients from food after it’s broken down by the small intestine? The leftover rubbish is then neutralised by the colon to make it safe so that it can continue its way through the body. The colon also produces essential vitamins such as Biotin and Vitamin K.

If you don’t take care of your colon, you’re risking contracting various health problems and illnesses. A poorly functioning colon can cause constipation, diarrhoea, insomnia, headaches and even depression. In severe cases, an unclean and poorly functioning colon can lead to colon cancer. This is why it’s so important to look after your colon and whole digestive system. A few small changes to your lifestyle could help to prevent many different health conditions associated with a poor functioning colon.

A person who appears to be healthy on the outside is not necessarily healthy on the inside. Filling up on the proper nutrients and drinking lots of water can help to keep your colon clean and healthy. In the same way, you take care of your skin or your hair, it’s essential to look after your colon, too!

What is Colonic Hydrotherapy?

Colonic Hydrotherapy or irrigation has been practised for many years and is a completely natural and safe treatment. The procedure involves inserting the nozzle of a device into the rectum to send water into the colon. The qualified hydrotherapist can control the pressure and temperature of the water, and the entire procedure usually takes around 45 minutes.

The treatment is essentially an internal bath, gently flushing out toxic waste and excess gases. Approximately 16 gallons of water will pass through the bowel, and the fluid can contain herbal infusions or coffee. These supposedly offer additional benefits, though there is little evidence of this. You don’t necessarily have to be suffering from constipation, diarrhoea or any other bowel irritations to undertake colonic hydrotherapy. It’s just a great way to take care of your health and well-being with regular treatments.

Depending on the results of your consultation, your therapist will recommend how many colon cleansing treatments you should undergo. This can vary from person to person and can be as little as just one treatment in a period of 1 to 3 months, or a course of up to 6.

Colonic Hydrotherapy is supposed to enhance the body’s natural processes of eliminating harmful substances. Unfortunately, some patients feel slightly unwell during the procedure, with some reporting symptoms of stomach ache, headache and fatigue.

This could indicate that the procedure is working and your body is effectively cleaning itself and flushing out the wasteful toxins.

5 Yoga poses you can do from your desk!

It’s no surprise that spending 8+ hours a day sitting at a desk isn’t good for you and your body. Sitting in an office chair all day every day can lead to neck, shoulder and lower back pain. However, desk yoga could help to relieve stress and prevent injury. Here are five yoga exercises you can do from the comfort of your office desk…

  1. Desk Yoga Seated Crescent Moon

Begin by lifting your arms above your head, connect the palms and extend your fingers wide. Carefully lean to one side and take 2-3 deep breaths before repeating on the other side. The Crescent moon pose gives a deep stretch to your sides, lengthening your spine and allowing you to continue working with better concentration and focus.

  1. Chair Pigeon

Whilst sitting down, place one leg over the other at a 90-degree angle, flexing the foot so you don’t put pressure on the knee. Stay in an upright position and make sure you keep an even distribution on both seat bones. Hold for 5-10 breaths once you start to feel a gentle to moderate stretch in the upper outer thigh. Now repeat on the other side.

The seated pigeon pose opens the hips and chest and allows us to regain the balance we sometimes lose while sitting in our desk chairs.

  1. Desk Yoga Standing Seal Pose

This one starts in a standing position with your legs placed 3-4 feet apart. Inhale the arms behind you, intertwining your fingers together. Next, squeeze your shoulder blades together before folding forward at the hips and bringing your arms in front of you. Hold your legs and arms straight and try to control this pose for 4-8 breaths.

The standing seal pose stretches both the spine and legs while opening the shoulders. It also improved mental function, exactly what you need mid-afternoon at your desk, by harmonising the connection between the heart and mind.

  1. Desk Yoga Upward Dog

Begin this one in a standing position and place your hands roughly shoulder-width apart on the edge of a sturdy desk. Slowly walk your feet backwards while keeping your arms straight. Try to lean your hips towards the desk and open the chest as you do so. Hold the upward dog pose for 5-10 breaths. 

Posture can be greatly impacted while sitting over a laptop at a desk all day. This pose can help to open the chest and lengthen the spine, improving your posture.

  1. Restorative Pose

This pose is slightly different to the others but is just as important. when work gets stressful, it is essential to restore your mind and ground yourself. Place your feet flat on the floor and cross your arms to your desk. Lay your forehead down onto your arms and breathe deeply for up to 5 minutes. This pose will allow you to unwind while destressing at the same time.
