Colonic Irrigation & Weight Loss
A lot of people often want to know... will a colonic irrigation help you to lose weight?
The short answer to this question is - yes, colonic irrigation (also known as colon hydrotherapy) can help you lose weight.
If you’ve come to the decision that you’re not happy with the number you see on the scale in the morning, sometimes, the problem area isn’t something you can see when looking at yourself in the mirror. Rather, it’s inside of the body.
To help shed some light on this wildly popular question regarding colonics and colonic irrigation, we’ve created this short informational blog post. Enjoy!
How Colon Hydrotherapy Helps You Lose Weight
Believe it or not, colon irrigation actually helps you lose weight in two different ways, which we’ve broken down below.
1. The Removal of excess “waste”
As we already covered, colonic Irrigation can help you to lose weight. However, the weight you are losing will not actually consist of fat tissue. Instead, your weight loss will be from the removal of mucus and hardened waste (sludge) that has built up along the walls of your colon.
That’s right, all of your bloat, general lack of energy, and higher than weight can actually be attributed to kilograms of excess waste that the body hasn’t been able to eliminate. The worst part? Most of this is taking place inside of your colon without you even realizing it!
Depending on the severity and condition of your colon, many of our patients have reported losing several kilograms after a colonics treatment. That being said, you most likely won’t notice a change in your outward appearance (very little if any) following a treatment.
Instead, you will notice a difference in the way you feel, with most people reporting feeling “lighter” after a successful colon hydrotherapy treatment, even for those that don’t lose a significant amount of weight.
2. more efficient digestive system
The second way colon irrigation helps you lose weight is by giving your digestive system a refreshing cleanse to make sure everything is working at maximum capacity. When your colon and digestive system are in poor health, they’re not able to do their job as efficiently.
This results in a sluggish digestive tract that’s slow to eliminate waste, more likely to accumulate unwanted weight, and ideal for toxin producing bacteria to thrive in. All of these factors can negatively impact the way your body digests food and uses/stores the calories.
Of course, colonic irrigation doesn’t just benefit your digestive system, but your whole body as well! With a clean, waste-free colon, you’ll find yourself having more energy, clear mental focus, and all around better performance and results when using traditional weight loss methods.
3 Reasons to Cleanse Before Starting Your New Weight Loss Diet
Still sitting on the fence about whether or not colonic irrigation can help you lose weight? Below, we’ve provided just a few more reasons colon hydrotherapy can jump start your weight loss efforts.
1. Boost your energy & mental state
When waste and other fecal matter is stuck to the walls of your colon, you will generally feel fatigued and tired most of the time. A colonics program will help increase your energy, vitality, and overall endurance, thus helping you follow your weight loss program.
2. eliminate stomach problems
Cleaning your colon will directly affect your digestion, making it faster and more efficient. When the colon is lined with mucoid plaque and solid waste, your whole digestive and waste removal system slows down. A colon cleanse on the other hand, will clean your colon and get your digestive system back on track, making it possible for you to follow your dietary regimen till the end without facing any stomach related problems.
3. reach your goals faster
After cleansing your colon, you will experience an increase in both endurance as well as energy while exercising. This will help you in achieving the exercise and workout related goals of your fitness program, simultaneously boosting confidence and lowering weight at the same time! That’s right, colonic irrigation can help you lose weight faster.
