Colon Hydrotherapy is recommended for those who wish to detox or those who suffer from regular fatigue and indigestion.

Steam Baths:

Patients are made to sit in rooms are filled with warm, humid air to promote the release of impurities from the body. Similarly, in a sauna, the room is filled with dry and warm steam that causes you to sweat away impurities. It is an effective way to detox your body on a routine basis.
