“Both health and disease have their roots in the colon”

Cleansing the colon of accumulated toxins, waste and undigested food is essential in achieving and maintaining optimal health.   Your colon is the sewer system of your body and the site where all other organs of elimination deposit the toxins which they process.  If the toxins in the colon aren’t being eliminated properly, they can be absorbed through the walls of the colon and passed into the bloodstream.  This causes a condition known as “autointoxication” which is believed to be the root cause of many illnesses.

How do we know when our colon is toxic?  Every day we ingest toxins from our food, water, air, environment, cleaning and personal care products, prescription medications, high stress lifestyles, etc.  Common signs of colon toxicity can include the following:

Pura Holistic Therapies Inc. Constipation (defined as having less than 1 or more bowel movements daily).
Abdominal gas and bloating.
Poor digestion, abdominal discomfort or nausea.
Overweight, distended or protruding or rigid abdomen.
Acne, chronic skin problems, sallow complexion, dark circles under the eyes.
Frequent colds/flus and infections.
Menstrual problems.
Prostate problems.
Lower back pain.
Frequent headaches.
Fatigue, low energy, mental confusion.
Depression, anxiety, irritability and nervousness.
Bad breath, coated tongue, body odour.
Regular colon cleansing reduces the toxicity in our bodies, and greatly improves our overall health and digestive functioning.  Please see our frequently asked questions section for more information on this valuable procedure.
