When I’m asked what alternatives there may be, I have one immediate thought. Colon hydrotherapy. If there is any way to give your gut as chance, it is to reduce the amount of imbalanced flora that may be there. Using the healing power of water to encourage a clean bowel can provide a better platform for probiotics and food-based bacteria to recolonize the GI tract.
There is no doubt that one of the most interesting and growing new areas of medical interest involves the gut. More specifically, the gut flora. Long the overlooked unglamorous area of digestion, advances in technology have provided knowledge that is allowing the topic of gut flora to be analyzed and researched like never before. The ability to analyze the gut bacteria populations has allowed researchers to compare the gut flora of healthy and unhealthy groups and make some interesting conclusions. This research has created many headlines across the planet. The most popular has been related to obesity. In an article in the journal Nature, the balance between several microbes started a mass of research on the subject. In the years since, the ability to study the microbiome has evolved several generations (microbes do reproduce rapidly).
What happens when you don’t take the garbage out for a week?
We've all seen it, we've all smelt it!! It starts to STINK, BULGE, and eat away at the garbage bag! Sounds gross doesn’t it? It’s the same idea with your colon (large intestine). We ALL retain old fecal matter (poop), dead red blood cells, excess mucous, parasites, and yeast in our colon. Whether we’re having 1 or 3 bowel movements a day, "garbage" can get trapped in there. What goes in must come out and a lot of the time we don't see the balance of the two. If you're only having one bowel movement a few times a week, imagine what you’re storing in there, what it’s doing to your gut lining and how it's effecting your health?
