Natural Colon Cleanse Vs. Colonic Irrigation
It’s safe to say that many people would prefer a natural colon cleanse to session of colonic irrigation. For one thing, natural cleansing is not as invasive, which is generally a big plus for most people. More importantly, though, the benefits of a natural colon cleanse can be longer lasting.
You may already know that, with a natural colon cleanse, herbs and supplements are combined with a specific diet to help your body eliminate waste and toxins. And you may also already know that colonic irrigation means seeing a specialist who performs a procedure that involves introducing water to the colon at various temperatures and pressures. But even with all that knowledge, you may be wondering what the benefits of a natural colon cleanse are as an alternative to the more intrusive colonic irrigation. Some of them seem obvious, like the cost or discomfort, but other benefits of a natural remedy include:
- Less harsh. While colon hydrotherapy eliminates all waste from the colon, it can also eliminate the good bacteria with the bad. This is problematic because our colons need good bacteria to function properly, and a lack of bacteria can lead to even more problems than the toxins and excess waste caused. Natural remedies, on the other hand, eliminate waste while maintaining a balanced environment for the "good" bacteria. Furthermore, the plant fibers used with a natural method are also less abrasive to the colon than a plastic hose is. All in all, the natural method is much gentler on the body than a colonic irrigation session is.
- Safety. Colonic irrigation is not recommended as a regular procedure. Natural remedies, however, are gentler on your body and thus are safer for more frequent or daily use. Further, since natural remedies do not completely eliminate everything in the colon like colon hydrotherapy does, you may not need to take probiotics to replenish your "good" bacteria.
- And More.
When considering either a natural colon cleanse or another method, you should contact your doctor to see which method he or she suggests. While it may seem clear to you which is the better option, it is always good to get a second opinion from your medical professional.
