The Possible Health Benefits Of Colon Cleansers

Author : Andrew Goligher

Using colon cleansers to promote health is a practice that can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, as a matter of fact. In this country, cleaning out the colon (basically, the large intestine) goes back to the 1920s and 1930s, when this practice first rose to popularity. For a time, it lost some of its luster and the practice fell out of favor, but these days it's rapidly gaining new adherents.

In general, there are a variety of cleansing agents that are being promoted these days, including colon irrigation, drinking tea mixtures or certain drinks made primarily of natural spring water and enzymes. There are also two main ways to go about engaging in the practice; either by buying over-the-counter products or by seeing a practitioner to have a colon irrigation performed.

In terms of the purchase of off-the-shelf products, those divide up into two separate groups. The first involves taking certain mixtures or supplements orally while the second involves having the mixture introduced into the rectum, via enema. The idea is to force the colon to expel whatever wastes or other products happen to be contained within the colon and thereby improve overall health.

As far as finding the ingredients and mixtures, it's as simple as going online or going to any health food store or the health section of a large supermarket, for example. In addition to enemas, many of these cleansing agents can also be obtained as laxatives and herbal teas. Immediate benefits seem to be things like more restful sleep and much better digestion, generally speaking.

The single most involved procedure -- and the one that's the most thorough -- is colon irrigation, though it can only be performed by a colon therapist or hygienist. They're known as high colonics and they're somewhat like enemas but much more intense, in a way. The therapist will use a special machine designed to put large amounts of water into the colon and then pump it back out.

As a means of engaging in a thorough colon cleanse, there probably is no better way to do so than through this particular method. It can certainly be the best way to avoid the messes and odors that are often seen with at-home remedies. In many cases, the therapist may also combine these cleansers with other substances such as probiotics, for example, which are beneficial to the intestine.

The possible health benefits of colon cleansers could be many, and they include better digestive tract functioning as well as improvement in general health. As well, they can be an excellent way to help the body eliminate accumulated waste, which often carries low-level toxic substances within it. Experts often recommend at least an annual cleanse as a way of maintaining good health, by the way.
