Our experienced staff uses state-of-the-art closed system Colon Hydrotheraphy Equipment, disposable tubes and purified water for a safe comfortable Colon Hydrotherapy session. Cleansing the colon takes the burden of eliminating toxins off the liver and other eliminatory organs.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is the gentle washing out of the large intestine with warm, purified water. It is said to be equal to six enemas, but when accompanied by skillful massage techniques, it is much more beneficial in dislodging accumulated waste, gas and mucus as well as toning the colon muscles so they can work more efficiently.
What might I expect from this procedure?
A disposable rectal tip is inserted and connected to a flexible tube leading to a “ state of the art ” pressure and temperature controlled instrument. Warm water gently flows into the colon to aid in the release of accumulated waste. This procedure is both gentle and relaxing. The attending colon hydrotherapist will assist you to feel comfortable. When you feel the urge, your hydrotherapist will release the contents. One may observe this release through a glass tube in the colonic machine. You wear a gown and are draped during the entire procedure.
Why would one want to have a Colonic Session?
Toxic debris may have been lodged in the pockets and corners of your colon for years, being reabsorbed through the colon wall, causing illness and lack of vitality. The build up of this debris over the years causes putrefaction and gas, which stretches the wall of the colon. This weakens the “peristaltic” (involuntary muscle action) of the colon, causing constipation. There are many pockets, bends and curves in the colon, which lend themselves to accumulating waste material, even for those who feel they do have “ normal ” bowel movements daily. It is truly amazing what can build up in the colon over 20 years!
Function of a Healthy Colon
The colon is a hollow tube-shaped organ surrounding the outside wall of the abdominal cavity. The chyme or digested food, which comes from the small intestines, enters the colon through the ileo-cecal valve in a liquid state. This liquid containing electrolytes is gradually removed as various muscle waves propel the waste through the colon where it is expelled through the anus. The colon is a wonderful organ, if functioning properly the overall health of the individual will be improved.
Health and Beauty Begins Within
Restoring vibrant health that glows from the inside out is a multi-faceted venture. We must educate ourselves about diet and understand the body’s eliminatory organs, because the back up of toxins in the body is the origin of disease. In order for us to make the changes in our life-styles our diet and habits, we must understand our bodily functions to bring about the results we desire. When detoxifying the body, it is important to be aware of the needs of all the organs of elimination!
When we understand how gas bloats the intestines, weakening the colon wall, we become aware of the importance of proper food combinations to avoid excessive gas. When we realize how old debris adheres to the wall of the colon, causing the body to reabsorb it’s own toxic waste, we are more willing to give up the refined processed foods, white flour products and cheeses that constipate and clog the colon. Drinking coffee causes the body to react in “fight or flight” shutting down the digestive tract, including the digestion and absorption of nutrients and the colon’s function.
As soon as we adjust our diets to high fiber foods, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and add plenty of pure water, a remarkable change starts to happen and our body response is immediate. There is so much to learn about the colon’s function and its connection with the skin, liver, lymphatics, lungs and kidneys. Good care given to any of these organs of elimination reduces stress on the others.
