What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, painless, effective method of removing waste and toxins from the large intestine, without drugs. By introducing filtered, gravity-fed and temperature-regulated water in the colon, waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through the body natural peristalsis.

Why Cleansing Soups?
Diet should include lots of roughage and fiber (fruits, vegetables, and whole grains). Eat foods whole and unprocessed as much as possible. (7 vegetables, 2 fruit, 1 protein, 1 starch daily) Fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes, simply is the portion of the plant foods that human can’t digest. You know that fiber is part of a healthy food program but you might not know how insoluble and soluble fiber work.
What is insoluble fiber?
It is the coarse, chewy part of the plant that does not dissolve in water. It form a plan’s structure and can be found in the outside tissue- think fruit skins, stringy vegetables, and crunchy whole grains
What does it do?
Insoluble fiber passes through the body largely intact; it soaks up water like a sponge, adding bulks and softness to the stool. It prevents constipation but also speeds the rate at which food goes through the body. That’s good news for the colon because shorter transit time helps prevent diverticulitis (pockets) and hemorrhoids. Fiber also moves toxins.
Which foods contain the most?
Whole grains, cabbage, beets, carrots, Brussels sprouts, turnips, cauliflower and apple skin
What is soluble fiber?
It’s found inside plant cell walls- dissolves and thickens in water to form a sticky, gel-like substance. It gives oatmeal its gummy texture and cooked beans their mushy centers.
What does it do?
As it passes through the digestive system, soluble fiber binds to cholesterol, helping the body to eliminate it. It also eases irritable bowel symptoms and other digestive problems by helping to regulate both constipation and diarrhea, and slows the absorption of simple sugars
Which contain the most?
Oat, beans, peas, citrus fruits, strawberries and apple pulp.
- Always go for whole grains
- Eat more legumes like peas, lentils …
- Load up on vegetables and fruits
- Chew your food very well, 25 times per bite or to the consistency of applesauce.
- Prepare warm cleansing soups
Digestive juice: 4 carrots, 1 apple and 5 stalks of celery
