Colon Hydrotherapy - Colonic Irrigation
"Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the intestinal system. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and the tissues. It is the intestinal system that has to be cared for before any effective healing can take place."
Dr. Bernard Jensen
Being toxic and struggling with health issues can make life on a daily basis very difficult, draining your energy reserves, making you tired, lethargic, irritable and fatigued, often leading to poor decision making, thus to more stress on the system and in one's life. The colonic experience does not just help to rid the body of toxins, but also to kick-start the system and bring clarity of mind, all of which are needed in today's fast-paced world. Clients report feeling younger, fitter and healthier and having a new zest for life, helping them to go forward to enjoy each day and deal with the many problems with which life presents them.
"Life and Death, Health and Disease...All Start In The Colon"
WHY do we need to cleanse the colon?
Never in the history of human society was our immune system exposed to so many hazardous toxins and poisons. "The average American consumes one pound of food additives per year! Monosodium glutamate, sugar substitutes, dyes, preservatives, emulsifiers, fillers, waxes, tenderizers, hormones, antibiotics. Over 3,000 chemical food additives hide in our food." (Vegetarian Times, August, 1995). All these chemicals are harmful to our health.
Most of this toxic waste accumulates in the colon because the colon is the last place everything dumps into and unfortunately, what goes in does not necessarily come out. Ultimately one's health is on a decline when the colon gets overloaded after years of processed, fiberless foods, not drinking enough water, chemicals and just the air that we breathe.
Every organ, gland and cell in the body is affected by the condition of the colon.
According to James F.Balch, M.D. and Phyllis A.Balch, C.N.C. in their book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing,
"Toxins accumulated over the time in the colon circulate throughout the body via the bloodstream and leads to the absorption of toxins, resulting in intoxication (poisoning) of the whole body. Symptoms of this condition can include mental confusion, depression, irritability, fatigue, gastrointestinal irregularities and even allergic reactions such as hives, sneezing and coughing and lead to more serious disorders. Colon cleansing can rid the colon of debris, and help prevent and treat a variety of health problems."
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure of disease but can provide relief from many of these health problems:
||Irritated liver and gallbladder
Why not Laxatives?
Laxatives contribute to dehydration of the colon and weakening of the colon muscle thus compounding colon problems such as constipation. Over the time more and more laxatives will be needed and finally the natural functions of the colon will completely stop. THEN WHAT?
Why not enemas?
Enemas require retention of water where colon hydrotherapy does not. The cleansing action of an enema is limited to the area of the rectum, which is only 7 to 8 inches long. Enemas are preformed in shorter periods of time due to the body's natural urge to eliminate any fecal matter from the rectum. Colon hydrotherapy extends beyond the rectum to thoroughly cleanse the entire large intestine, which is 5 feet or longer, offering grater cleansing and therapeutic benefits.
Why colon hydrotherapy?
It is one of the most powerful, effective and save methods to clean and detoxifying the entire body. Colon hydrotherapy hydrates the colon, softening hardened impactions, diluting toxins and flushing them out. Thus the procedure benefits all organs of the body, and in addition, strengthens the colon muscle and promotes natural peristalsis. The body can never be dependant on colonic. There are no known side effects for this procedure.
We use some of the world's finest state-of-the-art Colon Hydrotherapy equipment, manufactured in the U.S. and registered with the Food and Drug Administration as a medical device manufacturer, pressure and temperature controlled. Of course we use only disposable speculums and tubing.
Water filters through three filters and ultraviolet light to kill bacteria - so it is very safe to use. During the session the water temperature changes from 102F to 92F and gently relaxes and contracts the colon muscle. This "exercise" will naturally improve peristaltic of the colon.
Cleansing the colon via colon hydrotherapy also helps to rebalance the alkaline-acid ratio in the body. By keeping the internal environment clean, the friendly bacteria thrive while simultaneously inhibiting the disease-causing bacteria.
Once the cleanse is complete and a healthy, sustainable eating and exercising regime is in place, a colon hydrotherapy maintenance program can help to prevent the re-buildup of toxins in the body as well as sustain the high levels of energy and vitality experienced after a cleanse.
What will colonics do to the colon?
Will colonic wash out intestinal flora and valuable nutrients?
- It cleanses the colon.
- It exercises the colon. The buildup of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic activity allowing the colon to resume its natural state.
- It reshapes the colon. When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water helps to eliminate pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions, finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
- It stimulates reflex points: every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. Colonic stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.
The truth is the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in clean environment. This is why the intestines of a new born baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying rubbish and make a better environment for the good flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media. It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can be better absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one.
After the session you will receive a bottle of water with minerals and vitamins and capsules with good bacteria.
How do I need to prepare for the colonic?
To maximize the benefits of colon hydrotherapy, it is important to drink plenty of water, at lease 8 cups a day, eliminate red meat, sugar, flower products, dairy products/cheese and fruit juices. Increase intake of vegetables, whole fruits and vegetable juices, preferable juice of equal parts of celery, cucumber and beet.
And what can I expect afterwards?
Most likely, you'll feel great. Probably you'll feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. Someone having their first colonic will remark that it was one of the most wonderful experiences of their life. As soon as the colonic is finished, you can carry on with daily routine. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won't be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. It's also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following colonic.
How will I know when the colon is empty?
It will probably never completely empty, as it is an organ in continuous use. As more of the old impacted material is released you will actually feel the water enter higher regions of the colon without any sense of obstruction. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.
How many colonics do I need?
This depends on the lifestyle you live and the level of health you want to achieve! If you have never cleansed your colon, the most beneficial and popular program will be a Transformational Cleanse (14 colonics) with herbs, good flora and enzymes. We recommend that clients listen to their bodies to know when it is time. Some clients like to get one colonic each month, some do a mini-cleanse three colonics four times per year. We can work with you to determine your health and wellness goals and develop a program that offers you the best result!
