Did you know Cate Blanchett and her husband, Andrew Upton, Brad Pitt, Tara Reid, Ben Affleck, Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Aniston, Elle Macpherson and Lindsay Lohan rely on regular colonic hydrotherapy to keep them in peak condition? For stars the colon cleanse quickly helps to reduce the tummy and enhance skin glow, both very useful for a red-carpet event.

Cate told Yahoo Beauty, “I think it’s good every now and then to have a colonic….Not every day, but every now and again, because it’s super hydrating.”

The stars may do colonics for their short term benefit due to public image, but the beneficial long term is effect is what motivates people from all walks of life to hydrotherapy. No everyday as Cate Blanchett mentions, but enough to achieve our goal. Perhaps to rid the body of sickness, to feel invigorated, to stabilise or lose weight, or just to feel younger. The consensus is once we start and get over that potential embarrassment,  its hard to stop.

Stars light up the night sky and show us the way, celebrity stars also are the precursor to style and fashion. Many people look to them to find out what is new and what works. Colonics irrigation is not new, far from it, but its re-emergence and acceptance as a form of alternate therapy is gaining ground.
