Why the Ancient Egyptians Used Colonics

Jul 28, 2015 10:44PM
Colon hydrotherapy—the modern version of a technique first used by the ancient Egyptians—allows a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the release of softened waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. A colonic session is reported to help with headaches, bloating, parasites, candida, constipation, bloating and gas.

Rachel Mann, a certified colon therapist with 24 years’ experience, says “a colonic is important way to get your health back on track. A healthy colon produces vitamins B and K and absorbs water. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.”

Mann says that most people find a colonic session comfortable, and that the number of sessions needed depends on the individual. “Every person’s goals and needs will differ,” she says. “People have their own ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimens, and I recommend that colonics become part of it for optimum health and well-being.”
