Peristalsis is the wave-like motion of the entire digestive tract. lt needs living foods, plenty of physical exercise and relaxation in order to function properly. Without good peristalsis, waste matter can back up in the colon and begin to putrefy through bacterial action, which gives off toxic wastes that can paralyze the colon and make it sluggish. As colonics strengthen the colon, toxic acids and gases which irritate the nerves and muscles of that organ are eliminated, thus encouraging a return to vibrant health with normal peristalsis and regular evacuation.
Problems with the other major organs of elimination, the lungs, kidneys, skin and liver often improve as you continue your colon cleansing program. These organs are relieved of handling the overload, and can return to their own work, better able to perform their proper function. For this reason, colonic irrigation has often been called the forgotten key to health.
