Recycling, green bags, parks and river clean-up’s are great ways to help the environment and connect with Mother Earth. But if your internal environment is polluted you may not be feeling the kind of serene spiritual connection you desire. Toxic matter stored in the body bogs down energy and fogs the mind, making it difficult to really ‘feel’ the beauty in a perfect spring day. An overburdened liver impedes emotional chi from flowing freely in the body and can manifest as quick temper, negativity and a sense of hopelessness. If the colon is impacted with decaying fecal matter, toxins are leaching out into the blood stream leading to allergies, irregular bowels, unexplained pain and lethargy as well as the inability to loose weight and muddled thinking. Cleansing is an ideal way to improve your energy at its source and connect to your spiritual center.
We all have heard the saying ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’ and while that saying can be associated with cleaning your kitchen, it also relates to cleaning your personal ‘house’, the body you live in. Jesus, Buddah, Ghandi, and other spiritual examples of the past used fasting as a way to cleanse the body. Two thousand years ago, Jesus found it important to fast to cleanse his body and spirit and at that time fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified foods were not a factor in his world. We are involuntarily exposed to pollutants and toxins daily just by way of living. So it makes sense that during these times of spiritual re-awakening and reconnecting to natural cycles of life, that fasting and cleansing would be an important part of achieving that spiritual growth. If you’re not receiving the spiritual gratification and positive energy you are striving for the problem could be internal pollution.
Depending upon your particular symptoms various cleanses can be of great benefit. Removing toxins from an overburdened body can improve skin conditions, bloat, gas and relieve headaches. Using Colon Hydrotherapy as a method of cleansing is particularly effective as the body becomes extremely hydrated by the process.
Since our cells are energy conductors, they require water. Hydration improves the cell’s ability to receive nutrition and expel waste. Maintaining hydration at the cellular level improves the effectiveness of the detoxification process and allows for the free flow of energy. The outward effects of Colon Hydrotherapy are almost immediately noticed as the improvement of the condition of skin, hair and nails. Following a Colon Hydrotherapy session most people notice almost immediately an outward sort of ‘glow’ and the improvement of mental outlook has been described as a ‘lift of spirits’, which can be attributed to the removal of accumulated toxins and good hydration.
Since approximately 70% of the immune system resides in the gut, cleansing can improve a person’s immunity and we know that when we are feeling strong and healthy it is much easier to have a positive outlook on life and sail through the day with good, sustained energy.
Buddha said, “To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep the mind sound and clear.” With a clear mind we are better able to connect with ourselves and to the beauty of Mother Earth that surrounds us. Internal cleansing with Colon Hydrotherapy helps with all of that.
