The colon (also known as the large intestine or bowel) carries
out many functions which are essential for keeping us healthy.
As part of the digestive process it absorbs water soluble
nutrients and vitamins, and eliminates waste
from the body.
The delicate workings of the colon and the bacteria inside can
easily be disturbed by stress, pollution, poor diet, some drugs,
smoking and exposure to toxic substances.
Although you may go to the toilet regularly, some waste can
collect in little pockets lining the colon and does not pass
through you. The build up of waste also weakens the muscle of
the colon causing it to become congested. The result is a build

The colon is lined with bacteria which help keep it in good
health. During the therapy some of these bacteria are washed out
along with the waste. Many more will remain deep in the colon
lining and soon regenerate. Depending on your existing
conditions, and the symptoms you have been experiencing, your
therapist may recommend you take supplements to replenish the
bacteria that have been lost.
