Colon Cleansing Hydrotherapy, Cleansing Concepts, Westbury, NY
Accumulated toxins may be absorbed into the system and over time may stress the organs of elimination which are the liver, kidneys, skin, and large intestine. The toxins move around and around in both the lymph system and blood, slowly causing auto-intoxication which then leads to disease. Many people likely have years of impacted waste material in their colon. When you begin the colon cleansing process through fasting, healthy eating or lifestyle changes, the waste materials begin to break down and move out. Colon hydrotherapy helps your body eliminate these toxins.

Problem areas are visibly smoother after the treatment and not even exercise can produce such fast results. The results are cumulative, as with all microcurrent treatments. It is an innovative 21st century technology that some of their clients have dubbed “the body perfect treatment.”
