We Did It (So You Don’t Have To): Colonics!

Written by Kathie Bergquist. Posted in We Did It (So You Don't Have To)

A health treatment that dates back to ancient Egypt and Greece, colon hydrotherapy (a.k.a colonics, colon cleanse)  is becoming increasingly touted by alternative and homeopathic health practitioners as a way to eliminate toxins and extra waste and blockage from the bowels. Although the science behind colon cleansing has been largely denounced by mainstream Western medicine, its many advocates swear by the positive effects of colonics.

Intrigued by the hype around colon hydrotherapy, (albeit a little bum-shy), your dedicated Ms. Fit editors Jessica and Kathie decided to see for themselves if colonics were all they were cracked up to be, in Ms. Fit’s first installment of We Did It So You Don’t Have To. Curious? Considering colon hydrotherapy but feeling squeamish? Read on.
