Your Options for
Constipation: Why Oxygen Colon Cleansing is Best
In order to prevent
constipation 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
treatments are not equal, however.
There are five major ways that one can cleanse their colon. These are:
Each of these
treatments has their pros and cons. For most, however, an oxygen-based
cleanser will do the best job of removing the most toxic waste and
improving the health of your colon. Let’s review each type of treatment
to find out why.
Colon hydrotherapy (also known as colonic irrigations) is the process of
inserting a tube in the anus and then flushing 1-5 gallons of water
through the colon. The procedure can be completed either at home or at a
clinic. If a colon is in a bad state of health, this process can be
effective at getting the compacted material out of the large intestine
rapidly. However this process also has a number of disadvantages.
Here is a quote from
the National Council Against Health Fraud regarding colon hydrotherapy,
"In 1985, the Infectious Disease Branch of the California Department of
Health Services stated that "neither physicians nor chiropractors should
be performing colonic irrigations. We are not aware of any
scientifically proven health benefit of this procedure, yet we are well
aware of its hazards." (Kizer, 1985) Hazards include illness and death
by contamination of colonics equipment (Istre, 1982); death by
electrolyte depletion (Eisele, 1980), (Ballentine, 1981). In addition to
the physiological upsets, the colonic apparatus can perforate the
intestinal wall leading to septicemia (bacterial contamination of the
blood), a very serious disorder."
Further, it can quickly become very expensive to go through this
treatment. It costs between $25 and $100 per treatment and will take
approximately 90 minutes of your time at each visit. Further, as the
body is not made to have water shot inside of it, it is possible for the
process to unnaturally extend the bowel and colon, potentially causing
rips or stretching the lining of the colon. While this process will
break off and flush out some of the ‘hard stuff’ on the colons intestine
wall, it in fact gets none of the dangerous toxins and hardened material
and mucous attached to the walls of the small intestine. Much of this
material will remain.
Enemas are a treatment that has been used for many centuries to treat
constipation. 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 or are suffering from constipation will want to use a proper
oxygen-based colon cleanser.
Laxatives are used as temporary treatments 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 treatment
for constipation. If you want to treat temporary blockage, a laxative
may be helpful. 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
The best way to get a thorough colon cleanse is through oxygen-based
colon cleansers such as Oxy-Powder. The only way to properly melt away
that compacted matter is through an oxidation reduction reaction.
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 constipation
treatments. 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.
