The colon and rectum are part of the large intestine. Colon cancer occurs when tumours form in the lining of the large intestine. It is common in both men and women. The risk of developing colorectal cancer rises after age 50. You’re also more likely to get it if you have colon polyps, a family history of colon cancer, ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, eat a diet high in fat, or smoke.
Symptoms of colon cancer include
- Diarrhea or constipation
- A feeling that your bowel does not empty completely
- Blood (either bright red or very dark) in your stool
- Stools that are narrower than usual
- Frequent gas pains or cramps, or feeling full or bloated
- Weight loss with no known reason
- Nausea or vomiting
Because you may not have symptoms at first, it’s important to have screening tests. Everyone over 50 should get screened. Tests include colonoscopy and tests for blood in the stool. Treatments for colon cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination. Surgery can usually cure it when it is found early
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colonic Irrigation, is a natural way to aid health and feel clean and balanced. Colon Hydrotherapy has been used for centuries by European, Middle Eastern, and Far Eastern people for personal purification, health, and religious pursuits. Today, it is being used in alternative and naturopathic therapies for cancer treatment, candida and constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and to ease labour and childbirth.
BENEFITS OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY FOR CANCER
Colonic Hydrotherapy is especially useful in treating cancer patients. Colonics improve circulatory functions, stimulate the immune system, remove toxic waste, stimulate appetite, eliminate headaches, and boost energy.
When we eat a nutritionally deficient diet, the unused waste stagnates in the colon and the body absorbs these toxins. The organs in the body responsible for purification, such as the liver, kidneys, lungs, and skin, work overtime trying to purge the waste. This can result in a variety of illnesses.
Removing carcinogenic toxins from the body and boosting the immune system are paramount during illness, especially cancer. With cancer, large tumours can break and cause necrotic areas, formed of dead tissue. Since the body expels these toxic by products through the colon, it’s vital to keep the colon flushed out with a cleansing colonic irrigation.
If a patient is weakened from the disease, frequent colonics help relieve the colon’s toxic burden during the patient’s healing process. But remember, colonic hydrotherapy is not a cure, nor should it be the only treatment for cancer.
A diet—full of processed foods, saturated fats, salt, bleached bread, additives, and artificial colours—leaves the colon clogged and stressed. Undigested food in the colon can ferment and putrefy, encouraging bacteria and toxins. Add to that a habitual lack of exercise and not drinking enough water and the result is constipation or diarrhea
Colon Hydrotherapy releases congestion in the bowel, encourages beneficial intestinal flora, and detoxifies the body to improve overall health. After a colonic, people report feeling lighter in body and spirit, clean, clear headed, healthy, and even euphoric. Other benefits of colonics include less headaches, better mental clarity, better weight management, and relief from abdominal cramps, rheumatoid arthritis, and allergies.
Colonic Hydrotherapy can also be used as a preventative measure for cancers of the colon, liver, and digestive system, as well as for general health. When we normally move our bowels, we do not entirely empty the colon and material is left behind. A colonic flushes away what is left over, cleaning the body of waste and toxins that can build up and promote the growth of cancer cells.
Along with a healthy diet and exercise program, regular colonics are part of a proactive plan to ward off disease and promote well-being. A generally healthy person can undergo a colonic once every few months to maintain good health.
