Is your gut the answer to help fight cancer?

Most people are aware of the benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy for constipation, IBS and diarrhoea. But did you know colonics may be an invaluable natural healing tool when treating cancer from a holistic perspective?

With the rising prevalence of cancer in today's society, more and more people are incorporating a natural approach to healing in conjunction with – or instead of - conventional medicine. The common theme of these alternatives is cleansing and detoxing your body to give yourself the best chance of survival.

Colon Hydrotherapy can be especially useful in patients fighting cancer. Colonics may help to improve your circulatory functions, stimulate the immune system, remove toxic waste, stimulate appetite, eliminate headaches, and boost energy.

I can personally attest to the benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy when fighting cancer naturally – in 2013 I faced a battle with Stage III Malignant Melanoma that had spread to the lymph nodes in my neck. After having 44 lymph nodes removed and given just a 10-15% chance of survival (and that was after surgery and radiation) I realised that I had to take my health in my own hands if I was going to survive.

Hence began a 2-year journey into natural healing alternatives for which I was fortunate enough to find the right combination of treatments that worked for me. Switching to an organic, mostly raw, mostly vegan diet was my first step. I practically became a natural-healing guinea pig, trialling everything from Intravenous Vitamin C to Far Infrared Saunas to Lymphercising in my healing efforts. But I strongly believe that discovering the cleansing benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy played a huge part in my survival and restoring my health.

It’s generally agreed that approximately 80% of our immune system resides in our gut. It’s our immune system that protects us against disease and illness, fighting off the bad-guys as required. But after years of eating a poor standard Australian diet, antibiotic overuse, high sugar intake, anxiety and a lack of physical activity, I had treated my best defense against cancer so poorly that it was barely strong enough to register a healing response.

Regular colonics helped me eliminate years of accumulated metabolic waste and chemical toxins from my gut and created an environment where beneficial bacteria could thrive, thereby assisting my immune system to function optimally. It also allowed the fantastic organic nutrition I was now eating to be much better absorbed.

2 years on, I’m ecstatic to reveal that I’m fighting fit and cancer-free! After that dismal initial prognosis, I’m out of the high-risk zone and my doctors say I really shouldn’t have a problem with the cancer coming back. I’m now committed to helping people with their own healing journey in the same way I was helped by some remarkable people myself.
