Do you have a gluten intolerance and can we help?
As we near the end of winter now is a good time to start thinking about cleansing and detoxifying our gut. Your body is actually your best friend and always strives to do the highest good for you at any given time. That is why it is so important to treat your body with respect. When you listen within, your body will tell you everything you need to know. Those who are intolerant to gluten or just sensitive to it commonly experience symptoms of gas, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal pain, cramping, tiredness, flatulence, fluid retention and weight gain.
So how can a colonic treatment help you? In this process, water is gently fed into the large intestine where it hydrates, loosens and evacuates waste and gas from the body. Due to the simultaneous water flow in and out of the intestines, the intestinal lining experiences a healing process that acts as a natural support for gluten intolerance.
Gluten intolerance is a hot topic at the moment and has been for some time now. I have seen a significant rise in clients coming for treatments linked to gluten intolerance that they are unaware of. So after the first session when I encourage them to reduce the gluten they consume and educate them about what foods contain gluten, they are left more aware of the steps to take in weaning themselves off it entirely. This is where colonics are a great addition to your wellbeing plan, enhancing optimum health and renewed energy levels.
Gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley. Naturally, oats do not contain gluten, but they can be contaminated by contact with other gluten containing grains, so it is always best to go with the gluten free oat option available on the market. Gluten can be found in everyday foods such as bread, pastries, biscuits and pasta. It may also show up as ingredients in barley malt, chicken broth, malt vinegar, some salad dressings, veggie burgers (if not specified gluten-free), and soy sauce.
Traditionally, beer is made from malted barley or malted wheat. Since both of these ingredients contain gluten, people with gluten intolerance will likely experience an adverse reaction after drinking beer. However, some types of beer contain more gluten than others. It is best to avoid beer. There are a number of gluten free beers available on the market for those who struggle to cut it out completely.
Gluten inflames the digestive tract and irritates the muscles that line the intestines. Because the body rejects the gluten and cannot process it, undigested food matter collects on the intestinal walls and eventually ferments. With repetition this process can lead to numerous health concerns, so keeping the colon clear and healthy is essential in order to keep the body thriving, energetic and symptom-free.
The success of colon hydrotherapy relies deeply on the foods we eat. To maintain colon health and keep coeliac disease and gluten intolerance symptoms at bay it is ideal to eat clean alkaline, anti-inflammatory foods, incorporate lots of fresh produce and avoid packaged and processed foods. Probiotics are also a great addition to the diet to rebuild good bacteria in the colon that may be stripped away from gluten intolerance symptoms and a toxic colon.
By eating clean foods and avoiding overeating, we can loosen up old fecal matter and toxins in the body and began to remove them, which aids in cell regeneration, weight loss and disease prevention. Old fecal matter can remain in the body from the time that we are young children. Imagine poison lying dormant in our bodies for that many years!
The combination of colon hydrotherapy, eating clean foods and avoiding gluten-laden foods is a sure way to keep digestive discomforts away and help maintain a lifestyle worth getting addicted to!
