Colon therapy is not a cure but it is a valuable procedure and treatment for a wide variety of colon conditions.
A toxic bowel is the source of many health problems. By stripping down the old toxic mucus lining of the bowel, we remove a source of disease in the body. In addition, we open up the bowel to a more efficient means of elimination and nutrient absorption, both of which are essential to any lasting healing process.
Our state of the art colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. Our FDA- registered equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and backflow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit. It also has the best filtering system available for colon hydrotherapy, utilizing six filters plus ultraviolet light. Disposable single-use rectal tubes and nozzles are used at our office. The equipment has been plumbed to meet all local ordinances.
Every tissue in the body is fed by the blood stream, which is supplied by the bowel. This allows radiant health to emerge from the inside out. Colon hydrotherapy restores bowel tone and improves nutrient absorption.
What is Colon Irrigation or "Colonic"?
Colon irrigation is a hygienic cleansing of the large intestine or colon. The colon (large intestine or lower bowel, is the eliminating organ or the body extending from the small intestine to the exterior anus. The colon is approximately five to eight feet long in the average adult. Colon irrigation utilizes purified water and a gently pressurized system to cleanse the entire large intestine.
Filtered and ultraviolet purified water is introduced into the colon through a disposable speculum. The speculum is inserted into the rectum about 1½ inches then there is a release of water and waste material. In this way, the colon is gently washed in progressive intervals (a little water in – waste and water out- repeated again and again). Imagine a wave gently touching the beach, then receding, carrying away silt and residue each time.
What is Detoxification
The process that removes toxins on a cellular level from the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system of heavy metals and environmental chemicals.
What is Colon Cleansing?
Colon cleansing is a detoxifying process. Toxicity occurs in our bodies when we take in more than we can utilize and eliminate, whether food, emotions, or mental stress. Colon cleansing is the process of clearing stored toxins, emotions, and stress from the body’s tissue.
The elimination of waste is one of the three essential functions of life:
Building tissue from food
Balance and maintenance
Proper elimination of waste
When we remove our toxic load, we become lighter in every sense. We are more responsive to our body’s needs and open to change: to overcome our addictions, cravings, and abusive habits. Colon hydrotherapy revitalizes natural functions, empowers new lifestyle choices and promotes true healing.
What is meant by Toxins?
Toxins are the compounds that are detrimental or poisonous to the body, several types of toxins, including lead, mercury, arsenic, and aluminum or toxic solvents from drugs, pesticides, herbicides, alcohol, formaldehyde and synthetic food additives are unfortunately persistent in our environment and diets.
What is a Colon Hydrotherapy Session like?
It is considered a comfortable experience for many people. We believe it offers many benefits, particularly improving the tone and the function of the colon. The colon hydrotherapy technique allows a small amount of water to flow into the colon and gently stimulate the colon’s natural peristalsis. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of toxic waste should encourage better colon function and elimination. A typical session lasts from 45 to 60 minutes. Most clothing can be kept on. You will be draped, or a gown can be worn to ensure modesty. Your dignity is always maintained.
What can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
Most clients report having increased energy and other healthier conditions such as clear skin and eyes, relief from gas and a toned and better functioning bowel. In turn, this gives them a general feeling of vibrant health.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy habit forming?
No. Colon Hydrotherapy enables the body to increase its natural bowel functions through peristalsis, instead of building a dependence on the treatment. The body strengthens its own colon muscles through the initial therapy. Colon therapy strengthens peristalsis by exercising the colon and promoting good muscle tone.
Laxatives, however, weaken the colons natural function. Eventually, the colon loses tone and strength to perform.
Is it true that Colon Hydrotherapy washes out good bacteria?
No. The truth is that the washing out of putrefaction in the large intestine increases the good intestinal flora, which can only breed in a healthy environment. Through cleansing of the colon, you encourage the growth of friendly bacteria by providing a healthy environment for their growth.
When taking on a cleansing program, there are body responses that may result. Each person is unique therefore will be affected in a different manner. These responses are the body's way of naturally releasing stored wastes and metabolic debris.
