If you often feel bloated, lethargic, maybe you have frequent headaches, or maybe you just want a flatter stomach, colon hydrotherapy can help.
Kasia Kamasinska is a colon hydrotherapist and owner of Healing of the Body and Mind Spa in the west Valley.
[SPECIAL SECTION: CBS 5 This Morning]
She says the procedure is a gentle cleansing of your colon.
"We're putting the water into your colon and essentially what it's doing is soaking up your colon so we can soak up the old stuff that's been sitting there for who knows how long? So the main idea is to get all of that out," she said.
She explained the procedure can give a good idea of your overall health.
"We can see how well your body is digesting food, if your liver is detoxing, if you have candida and also if you have parasites but they usually come out on the second day," she said.
Kamasinska said several things can cause our colon to not function the way it should. Things like stress, poor diet, lack of sleep and dehydration can really throw our gut out of whack and this can help correct things.
Shawnda Krohn is a colon hydrotherapy client who said she was feeling sluggish, couldn't lose weight and started feeling depressed.
Kamasinska introduced her to colon hydrotherapy and, after some initial hesitation, Krohn decided to go for it.
"I told her, 'no, no, I don't think so.' That visual that came to mind. I think the average person automatically thinks, 'I don't want to do that.' But the more she talked about it and the more she calmed my nerves about it and really talked about the benefits of it, it enticed me to go ahead and try it," Krohn said.
Krohn said her skin cleared up and she has more energy.
She was initially going two to three times per week but now only goes once a month.
Each treatment takes about 30 minutes and costs around $75.
