Your body is a temple, and it sometimes needs a good dusting of the ductwork to make especially devout, malicious microbes and wastes take their leave. Tend the temple and polish the pipes with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a colon hydrotherapy cleansing at Alternative Health Oasis in Powell (up to a $75 value).
At Alternative Health Oasis, colon hydro-therapist Kate Dixon helps patients flush compacted intestinal wastes during the colon hydrotherapy cleansing, a gentle process that aids bodies in the detoxification process. Dixon guides clients through the approximately 40-minute session, where up to 15 gallons of warm, triple-purified water gently irrigate the colon via a small rectal tube. The natural gravity system—a less invasive and gentler treatment than closed, pressurized colon cleansing—steadily cycles water through the lower intestine, helping break up and expel accumulated wastes. Dixon believes 70%–80% of the body's immune function lies in the colon, which easily becomes compromised by today's hectic lifestyles filled with devitalized foods that tax and clog the digestive system. Accumulated toxins may stress the liver, kidneys, skin, and large intestine, or enter the lymph system and blood, which can lead to disease. Cleansing intestinal infiltrators may help the colon absorb nutrients as well as fend off harmful microorganisms and reduce bodily inflammation.
Colon cleansing can help patients at almost any age—Dixon has treated patients from 4 through 90 years old—and each session is preceded by a consultation to ensure clients are clear of contraindications, such as fissures or severe hemorrhoids. Buyers deemed a noncandidate become eligible for a refund—customers can contact Alternative Health Oasis directly with specific questions. Patients should allow a full hour for their first session, as well as drink plenty of water—Dixon recommends a half-ounce for every pound of body weight and inch of tail feathers—in the days leading up to their appointment, if they are able.
