It’s Cleansing Time

September 22, 2017 By Mary

Fall is here!  This is a wonderful time of the year to be thinking about cleansing.  The season is changing to the cooler weather, temperatures are fluctuating and our eating patterns are changing.  In the spring and summer we like cooler foods and drinks while fall and winter we like the warmer foods and drinks.  Our bodies are in transition which is why this is a good time for a fast or cleanse.

Many people make it a habit to do a fast or cleanse four times per year–fall, winter, spring and summer.  The fast or cleanse can be 1-2 days, 3 days, 7 days, etc., whatever works for them in their schedule.  Some people give up certain foods during this time while others focus on just liquids.  It is usually an individual’s choice. A cleanse will give the digestive system a little vacation. This is a wonderful time for the body.

After the fast or cleanse is over, most people feel better.  This is a great time to have a colonic.  A colonic will help remove the toxins and old fecal matter.  Colonics will help finish the cleansing or fasting program.

Let’s start the fall season off right by cleansing, fasting, and having colonics. We will be glad we took this healthy step!    Contact Mary at 616-456-5033 or email me at mary@harmonynhealth.net to set up an appointment.

Suffering From Gas and Bloat?

The symptoms of gas and bloat usually occur after eating.  One can eat a small meal or a large meal and get that gassy/bloated feeling.   It is usually very uncomfortable and can be embarrassing as well.  You may wonder how this problem comes about.

Often, we do not combine our foods correctly.  That is, we put a starchy food and a protein food together at a meal.  Let’s say you are having breakfast and you decide to have eggs (protein) and toast (starch or carbohydrate).  Putting this combination together causes gas.  Maybe a dinner choice would be rice (starch) and beans (protein) which also causes gas.  These are just two examples of putting protein and starches together at the same meal.  Of course there are many other combinations that can cause the gas and bloat feeling as well.   Learning what combinations work best for your digestion system can be a real education.  We need to practice food combining with our meals to eliminate that gas and bloat feeling.

Another cause of gas would be drinking liquids with our meals.  The gas comes because all the liquid we just drank with our meals is preventing the stomach acid and the digestive enzymes to break down the food properly.  The large amounts of gas that occurs from drinking the liquid with our meal will cause bloating in our abdomen.  Our abdomen is usually swollen at this point making us look like we have over-sized abdomens.

Sometimes, certain vegetables and fruits will give us gas.  The individual needs to determine which vegetables or fruit might be causing the problem.  A food diary is a good way to keep a record of what we have eaten and how our body has reacted to the foods.  Becoming aware of the foods we eat that are causing the gas and bloat is the first step in understanding our digestive problem.

Colon Therapy – An Important Step

Colon Therapy (colonic irrigation) is an important step in maintaining or regaining ones health.  Colon therapy is NOT used for the purpose of treating or curing disease.  It is purely a hygienic method of cleansing and toning the colon.  It is an internal bath which helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas and accumulated fecal matter.  Colon therapy is a gentle procedure whereby the filtered water helps to soften and remove built-up fecal matter that has not been eliminated through bowel movements, enemas or laxatives.

As the colon gets cleansed, the fecal material will be removed and eliminated.  This will help the colon to function normally.  The gentle washing of the colon wall will remove the build-up of toxins thus improving the colon muscles.  The colonic will help to eliminate the pockets of waste and spastic constrictions by allowing the colon to resume to its natural state.

It is of vital importance to keep our colon clean because it is the key to good health.
