Will it make my bowel lazy?

I have had several people ask me over the last few days, in different ways, the same question – so I thought I would do a quick blog post about it ๐Ÿ™‚

The question is about whether having a colonic will interfere with the body’s natural ability to defecate – have a poo ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ย And the answer is a very definite “No” ๐Ÿ™‚


And the reason I can be so sure is two fold:


1)ย  All a colonic does is stimulate a natural reflex.

By introducing filtered body temperature water into the colon it gently mimics the bowel being full and ready to have a bowel movement. The person having the colonic gets exactly the same sensations as someone needing an urgent poo.

All that happens is a natural reflex is triggered using a bit of warm water. No chemicals are involved, nothing is forced, interfered with – just a gentle nudge to do what your body does naturally.


2)ย  Because a colonic is very thorough – a 40-50 minute process guided by a skilled practitioner – the natural reflex harnessed during a colonic will be triggered multiple times.

What this means is that the muscles of the colon get a good workout ๐Ÿ™‚ย  ย They are gently prompted to contract over and over again – a bit like having a personal trainer session at the gym just for bowel – with the colonic therapist encouraging the colon to flex and strengthen its muscles ๐Ÿ™‚


This is why colonics are such a beneficial and popular therapy – because they improve the health and function of the muscles of the colon – leading to smiles all round!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚
