Detoxification and colon therapy seminar

The Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine will discuss detoxification and colon therapy.

As part of his ongoing Wellness Presentation Series, John C. Pittman, MD, of the Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine (CCIM), will present "Understanding the Benefits of Detoxification and Colon Therapy" on Thursday, May 10th from 12:15-1:30PM. This free presentation will be held at CCIM's office at Blue Ridge Plaza, 4505 Fair Meadow Lane, Suite 111 in Raleigh.

Colon hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is a safe, clean, energizing, and relaxing method of removing harmful toxins and waste from the large intestine. By introducing a gentle flow of warm filtered water into the colon, the contents of the colon if softened and loosened, allowing waste to be easily expelled. Colon hydrotherapy is not a new treatment idea. Enemas were recorded as early as 1500 B.C. in the "Ebers Papyrus"-an ancient Egyptian medical document. In the early 1800's, enemas were used to help maintain health and stave off disease. Today, people are once again discovering the many benefits of maintaining a strong and biologically sound colon.

"One of the most important aspects of treatment at The Carolina Center is detoxification and treatment of chronic digestive disorders," explains Dr. Pittman. "Treatments that improve these functions are critical in order to recover from chronic illness. Many organs participate in detoxification processes and without proper detoxification, there is usually a progression of health deterioration."

During this 45-minute presentation, attendees will discover methods to increase the functioning of their organs that will reduce the burden of toxins, as well as improve cellular efficiency. Seating for this presentation is limited and advanced registration is required in case of cancellation. To reserve your seat for the event, contact Louise Cottrell at (919) 848-1025 extension 3 or register via e-mail to
