Many people suffer from bowel related issues
At Dermacia pharmacy in Islington we offer a range of natural therapies, including colonic therapy.
Many people have issues related to their bowels, with around 33% of GP visits being regarding to bowel problems such as bloating, constipation, pain and excessive gas. Medication can be used to alleviate the symptoms, but increasingly health conscious people are looking for a natural solution to their health problems.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy, otherwise known as colonic therapy is when the colon is gently rinsed with warm water to remove mucus, gas and faecal matter. This enables nutrients to be absorbed more easily and will leave you feeling light and fresh. Regular colonic therapy can help to reshape and tone the colon. A healthy well-functioning bowel is essential for the health of the body, when it is overloaded with toxins, the body will not function as well.
Can A Colonic Detox Your Body?
Due to the modern diet being high in processed food, animal protein, fat and sugar, as well as being affected by stress, the colon can end up being a toxic dump for waste. If the system becomes overloaded, this waste then enters the blood stream and gets deposited in cells, which makes us sluggish and susceptible to disease. Colonic therapy can help clean out the colon of toxins and waste.
Does A Colonic Hurt?
Most people who get colonic therapy the procedure is pain free, apart from some discomfort when the speculum is inserted. During the treatment there can be stomach cramps and a slight feeling of nausea, particularly when toxic waste leaves the body, especially if the colon is really clogged up.
Is it Safe?
Colon hydrotherapy is very safe when performed by a qualified therapist such as our fully trained Dermacia therapists. All of our equipment is sterilised or is disposable.
The Benefits of Colon Therapy
Colonic therapy can help with improving digestion, eradicating bloating and excess wind. It also can lead to clearer skin and eyes, weight loss, improved circulation and energy. Colon hydrotherapy helps boost your immune system and enables the lymph system to cleanse the body more effectively.
What To Expect At A Session
The procedure starts with the client lying down on one of our therapy tables, before the therapist carefully inserts a disposable speculum into the rectum. Then a gentle flow of warm water is introduced to cleanse the colon. Faecal matter and toxins are flushed from the body into a bag, so there are no unpleasant and embarrassing smells. When the treatment has finished the Dermacia therapist will advise you to go to the bathroom before you leave the beauty clinic.
How will I feel afterwards?
People report feeling lighter afterwards with a sense of internal cleanliness. In addition they can feel a renewed feeling of energy, and notice that their skin and eyes are a lot clearer. After the session of colonic therapy, clients are advised to drink plenty of fluids and reduce their intake of meat for a few days, and increase their uptake of fruit and vegetables. A colonic hydrotherapy session can make a great difference and most users feel a great impact after just one session. To make the most of colonic hydrotherapy, it should be combined with lifestyle changes and alterations to your diet.
