If what Hippocrates said, “all disease begins in the gut’” is true, then it would be expected that cleansing the gut would be a top priority of medicine, right? Well maybe the mainstream medical world hasn’t caught on, but at VIVA Wellness, we view gut health and cleansing through colon hydrotherapy as a powerful catalyst for so many types of healing.
And what we love, while not really all that surprising, is that the slightly more daring LA crowd that is known for pioneering and normalizing wellness treatments has endorsed colonics. Thank you, Hollywood and the open-minded celebrities willing to speak out on colon hydrotherapy as a key part of their wellness routine. Since we know that this often opens the door for curiosity in the mainstream. When that happens, we’re ready and waiting to support you on your gut health journey.
Why would celebrities be intrigued by it? First of all, they are humans with colons, and that seems reason enough to us, but also because digestion is linked to clear skin, keeping them healthy so they can keep up with demanding schedules without interruption, reducing stress, and helping them feel light (preventing or resolving constipation).
The benefits really go on and on, but enough from us. Though we could talk about it forever, we’ll let the celebs tell you why they love colonics.
What celebrities have said about colonics:
“Everyone laughs when they hear about colonic irrigation, like it’s amusing, but I felt so good when I was done with it – now I don’t want to put anything bad into my body. It really focuses you on what you’re eating. You see some pretty crazy sh*t coming out–quite literally.” —Jack Osbourne
Jack has also shared that he found colonics supportive of his mental health and addiction journey. VIVA Wellness Founder, Jennifer also shared about how colonics supported her mental health in a recent blog: Jennifer’s Experience with Colonics for Mental Health & Panic Relief.
Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn: When asked what her best beauty advice passed down to her daughter, Goldie responded, with “green juice, sleep, water, meditation, sauna, and colonics – oh yah – why wasn’t that number one!”
“For a deep cleanse – have 3 to 4 colonics performed during your cleanse (ideally every other day)” —Tony Robbins
Princess Diana reportedly had colonics 1-3x a week. She claimed it cured her fatigue, allergies, depression, infections, and migraines.
Oprah Winfrey: “For Oprah, colon cleansing was accompaniment to her weight loss program…”
Madonna: “Colon cleansing has helped keep her in shape.”
Mae West: “She took one colonic weekly for many, many years. When skeptics objected that medical experts frowned on such a schedule, Mae smiled knowingly. ‘Sure,’ she agreed. ‘Why wouldn’t they? If you never get sick, how are they gonna earn any money?’”
Leonardo DiCaprio: “gave it a try and now speaks highly of the benefits he experienced.”
Courtney Love: “Colonics are responsible for her dramatic weight loss”
