At VIVA Wellness, our commitment to an integrative and holistic approach to wellness drives us to explore every avenue that nurtures the interconnectedness of the human body. Our array of services, delivered by highly trained experts, is a testament to this dedication, inspired by our Founder’s own journey to health that included colonics (Jennifer’s Experience with Colonics for Mental Health & Panic Relief), with each offering meticulously designed to foster healing in one area while benefiting the whole system. Today, we shed light on a powerful therapeutic practice that lies at the heart of gut health and lymphatic support: Colonics.
Colonics: Empowering Gut Health and Nurturing the Microbiome
The gut, often referred to as the “second brain,” plays a pivotal role in our overall well-being. Its intricate ecosystem, known as the microbiome, comprises trillions of microorganisms that impact digestion, immune function, mood regulation, and even skin health (NaoMedical.com). Colonics, also known as colon hydrotherapy, offer a gentle and effective means of cleansing the colon and promoting gut health.
During a colonic session, warm, purified water is carefully introduced into the colon to flush out accumulated waste, toxins, and built-up debris. This gentle irrigation process aids in removing harmful substances that may hinder the gut’s optimal function. By supporting the colon’s natural cleansing process, colonics may facilitate improved nutrient absorption and a healthier microbiome environment, in turn, this improves the body’s overall chance to thrive. Truly thriving also includes mental and emotional health, and colonics have been shown to support mood, reduce anxiety, and foster the gut-brain connection. [Brogan K. Resolution of Refractory Bipolar Disorder With Psychotic Features and Suicidality Through Lifestyle Interventions: A Case Report. Adv Mind Body Med. 2017 Spring;31(2):4-11. PMID: 28659508.] This last piece was a critical factor in VIVA Wellness Founder Jennifer’s healing journey, helping her through panic and anxiety attacks, which over time not only lessened but stopped completely—the only change made during that time was the addition of consistent colon hydrotherapy.
The Art of Lymphatic Support Through Colonics
While the gut is instrumental in maintaining good health, the lymphatic system is equally crucial, as it serves as the body’s waste disposal and immune defense network. The lymphatic system is responsible for filtering and eliminating toxins and waste from our cells, tissues, and organs. Per this study out of Japan, it was found that colonics offer an unexpected but highly effective means of supporting the lymphatic system.
As waste is gently released during a colonic session, the lymphatic system kicks into action, expediting the removal of toxins from the body. Our team strongly feels that the symbiosis between colonics and lymphatic support helps to alleviate the burden on the lymphatic system, allowing it to operate optimally. As a result, clients at VIVA Wellness often report a boost in their immune function, enhanced energy levels, and an overall sense of well-being. Imagine pairing colonics AND lymphatic drainage treatments together—whether on the same day or simply in your routine over time. We feel that the benefits build on one another, as when either is releasing and flowing, the other benefits, too!
