Colon Hydrotherapy Benefits Spinal Cord Injury Sufferers
Individuals with spinal cord injuries usually have a difficult time completely eliminating their bowels. They can suffer from bouts of constipation and overall digestive discomfort. Spinal cord injuries such as paraplegics and quadriplegics frequently must rely on enemas, glycerin suppositories, stimulant medications, and regular digital stimulation in order to relieve their bowels. Unfortunately, many times the bowel movement does not adequately empty the colon.
Colon hydrotherapy benefits paraplegic patients and quadriplegic sufferers by bathing the entire colon in warm water to remove impactions and relieve the colon’s discomfort. Some physicians even encourage the use of colon hydrotherapy as part of a bowel training regime in spinal cord injury sufferers. In most cases, the person will benefit from one to three colon hydrotherapy seasons per month to successfully clean the colon and assist its overall function.
Patients undergoing colon hydrotherapy usually consider it a calming and relaxing experience. The process removes waste buildup, alleviates flatus, cleanses away mucus, and washes out any infectious material to promote a better functioning colon. Colon hydrotherapy also frequently relieves painful chronic bowel cramping.
The colonic cleansing process improves hydration in the colon and gastrointestinal system by slowly introducing warm water into the system. The water is naturally absorbed through the colon’s tissue and hydrates the entire body.
Even after the colon hydrotherapy session is complete, the body will naturally continue to cleanse itself which is highly beneficial for paraplegic and quadriplegic sufferers.
