Bowel Regularity Options: Why Oxygen Colon Cleansing is Best
In order to prevent bowel regularity issues and promote colon health, it is recommended that one regularly cleanses the colon, small and large intestine. This is known as colon cleansing. As the average adult has between 5 and 40 pounds of compacted waste in his or her bowels, a good colon cleanse would be of great benefit. It is important to know that all colon cleansing methods are not equal, however.
There are five major ways that one can cleanse their colon. These are:
- Colon Hydrotherapy (also know as colonic irrigations)
- Herbal supplements
- Oxygen-based Cleansers
Each of these methods has their pros and cons.
Colon hydrotherapy is the process of warm, filtered water being gently fused into the colon through the anus via a plastic tubing that is disposable. This procedure must be performed by a certified or licensed professional for optimum results and safety. Visit www.cathysheaschool.com for a list of GRADUATES who are qualified by international standards. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses the large intestine only and the instrument used must be FDA cleared to ensure sanitary conditions.
When used in conjunction with an OXYGEN based cleanser, it is possible, over time, to rid the body of toxins and impacted toxins in both the small and large intestine. Home use systems are available and are best used as an adjunct to the therapy performed by one's professional colon hydrotherapist.
Colon hydrotherapy is also know as "colonic irrigation" and "using colenemas."
Enemas are a method that has been used for many centuries for bowel regularity issues . Their effectiveness, however, depends on the type of enema that is used. In general, enemas will only remove material from the lower part of the colon and none are able to oxidize or melt away the compaction. They are useful, however, for emptying the rectum , which is the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon. On the other hand, many do not like having to insert the enema into their rectal cavity.
The main types of enemas are water enemas (similar to hydrotherapy except using a bag and much less water), coffee enemas, and clay enemas.
You'll find many products online and on store shelves that contain psyllium husk. These are classified as herbal supplements and come in pill or capsule form. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative and is high in both fiber and mucilage. The laxative properties of psyllium are due to the swelling of the husk when it comes in contact with water. The resulting bulk when ingested stimulates a reflex contraction of the walls of the bowel. The psyllium acts as a hard sponge as it works it way down. This often causes an emptying of the bowel. Why herbal supplements can be effective for short term bowel emptying, they are not effective in fully cleansing the bowel, removing much of the toxic waste, or improving the health of the villi in the colon. In a sense, these types of products cause contraction but not oxidation they do not internally cleanse. While these products are fairly inexpensive ($20 or so for a month's supply), persons who either want to properly cleanse their colon will want to use a proper oxygen-based colon cleanser.
Laxatives are used as temporary methods of constipation. While they are often effective at clearing you out, they do not cleanse. They don't touch the compaction one bit. Further, there are serious contraindications including dehydration and loss of muscle around the colon lining. This, after hydrotherapy, is the most dangerous method for constipation. This is a temporary method. If you want to experience the benefits of a proper colon cleanse or have mild or chronic constipation, however, they won't be of much use to you.
Oxygen-Based Colon Cleansers
Oxy-Powder is an oxygen based colon cleanser. Oxy-Powder uses specialized ozonated magnesium oxides to reduce the solid toxic mass into a liquid or gas form. It works in the whole system, not just the large intestine as the other forms of bowel regularity options. It cleans the entire intestinal tract and delivers much needed oxygen along the way--all without the side effects of laxatives and discomfort of enemas and hydrotherapy.
