More than 4 million people in the U.S. suffer from constipation, accounting for roughly 2 million doctor visits a year, making it one of the most common gastrointestinal issues. Almost everyone has been constipated at one time or another.

Constipation is a condition in which it is difficult, and even painful, to have a bowel movement. People suffering from constipation complain of hard or pellet-like stools, fewer than three bowel movements per week, and straining with bowel movements. They normally feel bloated, uncomfortable and sluggish. While the condition is often considered temporary and nonthreatening, if it is undiagnosed or left untreated it can lead to other health issues, including headaches, fatigue, moodiness and depression, hemorrhoids, anal fissures or tears, gas, lower back pain, skin problems, body odor, indigestion and abdominal pain.

Accumulated toxins may be absorbed into the system, and over time, may stress the organs of elimination, which are the liver, kidneys, skin and large intestine. The toxins move around and around in the lymph system and blood, slowly causing auto-intoxication, which then leads to disease.

Traditionally, doctors typically prescribe laxatives, drugs or surgery for constipation relief. These methods will only temporarily treat the symptoms, and there are many dangerous and harmful side effects that may be experienced with these treatments.

“One of the safest and most effective treatments of chronic constipation is colon hydrotherapy—a safe and gentle flow of warm, purified water into our large intestine without using pressure,” says Vanessa Drew, owner of Cleansing Concepts. “This gentle internal bath assists your body in the natural detoxification process and is the safest and the most effective way to wake up your digestive system and get it working properly.”

Drew believes that people likely have years of impacted waste material in their colon. “Colon hydrotherapy gently detoxifies and cleanses your system by moving the accumulated waste out of your body quickly, giving your body a chance to naturally refocus on rejuvenating itself. It will assist the body to eliminate pounds of unwanted toxic fecal matter and help to restore health and vitality to your entire body. By removing these toxic waste materials, the systems of your body, including the digestive and immune systems, are able to operate more effectively and efficiently,” enthuses Drew.
