A cleanse rids the body of toxins just like the Pied Piper rid Hamelin of a swarm of venomous rats. Whisk intruders out of inner pipes with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a consultation and a colon hydrotherapy session at The Cleansing Center (an $85 value).
Ruth Guymer, the certified colon hydrotherapist at The Cleansing Center, helps clients to detoxify and rejuvenate the body naturally with 45-minute colonic treatments. Following a consultation to discuss the procedure and individual goals, 15 gallons of highly filtered water flows like gentle, Class I rapids through the lower bowels, flushing out waste and softening plaque buildup. Colonics are thought to improve the wave-like contractions, or peristalsis, of the gut muscles and reshape colons that have narrowed, bulged, or taken on the form of an ampersand.
