Many of us have tried to lose a few pounds and been to various weight loss groups and if they do not work long term we try to find alternatives.
I have often read that colonic irrigation enables weight loss and yes to some degree that is true but not in the way many people think. A client may be 2 pounds lighter after the therapy but this is because of water and faecal release, it is not real weight loss and the scales may well be back to pre-colonic levels within 24 hours.
However, colonic irrigation does work well as a trigger to alter the way we approach our health and our food intake. It’s a great way of kick-starting a healthy eating plan or helping us to change old habits. Mentally it encourages us to start afresh and often people make a pact with themselves saying “if we get rid of the old we will take care of the new”. It is not uncommon for both men and women to make an appointment with this approach in mind.
Many of us need something that marks the end or the beginning of a change and for some, colonic irrigation does work. I think the key is preparing ahead, mentally being focused and knowing why we wish to change.
If you do decide to go down this route check out a few websites, get to know the therapist through their site. If you live in the UK, ensure they a member of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which is Department of Health backed and talk to the therapist before booking. Make sure you feel comfortable with them and also that any questions are answered to your satisfaction.
