How a Colonic Can Help You Cleanse


Though people have been using water to flush out their systems for centuries, colonics has recently surged in popularity as a detoxifying treatment. Celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Oprah, and Madonna have all used the procedure as a way to feel slimmer, less bloated, and more energized. More importantly, it’s an excellent way to detoxify your body.

See, the colon is over five feet long, folded into the body like a big accordion. It’s within all those folds that fecal matter can get stuck, causing digestive problems and leaching toxins into the body. The colonic is designed to undo all of that.

Here’s how it works: a tiny speculum, connected to a hose is inserted into the rectum. From there, temperature controlled water is sent up into the colon, soaking into all the nooks and crannies, softening the accumulated stool. Once the “fill” is complete, the water is released, sending newly-freed waste and toxins back down the hose and out of the body.

The more I read about the process, the more I knew I had to try it for myself. I called up Cindy Fulsom, the head hydrotherapist at Vitality Flow and booked an appointment.

Originally from Canada, Cindy first heard about colonics from a book that showed a man with a really ulcerated food. “They took pictures of it after colonics,” she recalled, “And it was pretty incredible to see those results. From there, I had a really strong interest. I wanted to do it.”

Turmeric has a warm, peppery and slightly bitter flavor with notes of orange and ginger. We most often use Turmeric in curry, but its also responsible for giving mustard its bright yellow color. Almost every day, it seems like new research is published, touting the benefits of turmeric. Here's what what science tells us it does:
  1. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Several studies suggest it is as powerful as some prescription drugs such as Motrin.
  2. Turmeric may provide an inexpensive treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) such as Crohn's.
  3. Helps relieve arthritis.
  4. Supports cancer prevention by eliminating free radicals and cancer recovery by suppressing cancer proliferation and inducing cancer cell suicide.
  5. Improves liver function.
  6. Slows oxidation of cholesterol, which damages blood vessels.
  7. Helps protect against Alzheimer's by cleaning the brain of the plaque that causes the disease.
PS. One drawback of using turmeric is its low bioavailability (only small percentage of turmeric is actually absorbed and the rest is flushed out). To increase turmeric's bioavailability, combine it with equal parts black pepper.
