Q: I just completed a series of five cleanses with hydrotherapy and am having good results. Is colon hydrotherapy a good thing and how often should I do it?
A: Colon hydrotherapy has a specific and useful role in health and wellness. However, like everything else, it can have adverse effects if overdone. Remember, every time you cleanse you loose vital intestinal flora, which is essential in proper balanced digestive function.
My recommendation is to have one thorough cleansing every two to three years and then follow up with monthly and quarterly fasting combined with herbal and dietary cleansing protocols to balance the external and internal approaches. A licensed herbalist will be able to guide you with regards to the proper internal cleanse.
You can also try using the “Internal Cleanse” tea by Traditions of Tao to help rid the body of harmful chemicals and toxins on a daily basis. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
