Colon Hydrotherapy and the Chemistry of Wellbein
The large bowel, a somewhat under-researched organ, plays an important role in the quality of life and maintenance of health as we age. With around 95% of our neuro-hormone of wellbeing, serotonin, being produced it the large intestine, we should always be able to rely on a well-functioning bowel to keep us happy and make sure the toxic load is effectively removed from the body.
However, our longer lifespan is often accompanied today by age-related slowing of the function of the large intestine. Such common factors as
- an increase in the transit time;
- a reduction in general physical fitness;
- 5-HT depletion;
- oxidative damage by the ROS due to prolonged exposure to toxic compounds in the stools;
- dietary changes resulting in lower-residue diets;
- the building of “water debt” and other factors
cause not only slow-transit constipation but also cell dehydration, reduction of muscle tissue elasticity and deformability and other more serious degenerative conditions such as diverticulosis and diverticulitis and colorectal cancers.
Doubts are now being cast on the effectiveness of high-fibre diets in mitigating the age-related degeneration of the digestive function.
Contemporary colon hydrotherapy, a controlled and measured release of water into the rectum with the purpose of rehydration of the large intestine and repayment of the “water debt”, can also boost serotonin production, accelerate transit time and reduce damage caused by the reactive oxygen species by means of removing excess toxic load and supporting the immune system in the large intestine. This also restores the subjective sense of wellbeing in an individual and sense of increased energy, which, in turn, helps increase mobility and maintain a healthy attitude to life.
