Colonic Benefits & Contraindications

The Benefits of Colonics

Since many illnesses originate in the colon, colonic hydrotherapy can prevent and ease many of the health conditions and concerns that may initially seem unrelated to digestion and the colon. It is also an excellent preventative measure for eliminating bodily wastes that have accumulated over time and that prevent optimal wellness.
