What is colon hydrotherapy?
It is the exercise of the of the colon and stimulator of peristalsis which is the break down and release of toxic waste, bile, mucus and debris that are lodged deeply in this important organ. A closed system to flush out the toxins is used by colon hydrotherapists. It is a painless treatment and an important part of your cleanse.
Colon hydrotherapy is used to treat constipation, help cleanse and detoxify the digestive system, strengthen the immune system and prevent a wide variety of chronic health problems.
Why Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Cancer is now the #2 cause of cancer deaths in the United States, according to the American Cancer Association. The first sign that indicated that the bowel is not function properly is either constipation or diarrhea. Having several bowel movements a day and still being constipated is possible for a person; long term buildup of plaque along the colon wall is accrued. When the colon is clean and functioning normally we experience better health and an overall sense of well being.
Poor colon hygiene causes waste material to move sluggishly and form a stagnant lining in the colon. This stagnant lining can remain in the colon for years cutting back elimination of waste so that the poisons remain the blood stream. When a sufficient amount of protein and sugar are present, fermentation begins. Putrefaction and fermentation produce even more poisons from which the body must defend itself. This condition is aggravated if animal or diary products, refined flour, sugar or alcohol have been habitually consumed. Under these conditions the immune system is considerable strained and over time the result is an environment that usually results in deadly disease.
Are there any side effects?
Most of the time, clients will feel an overall sense of well being after a session. There are no known negative side effects. However, it is possible to feel fatigue or have a headache afterwards. Generally, this is due to toxins being flushed quickly, which can be reabsorbed into the system. This feeling passes soon, and with further treatments(sessions) the client can expect to see benefits while experiencing relief right away.
Most people feel energized and lighter after a colonic. On very rare occasions, it is possible to get a headache or feel tired. There is no reason for alarm, please be sure to ask for electrolytes which should help your symptoms within minutes.
Does it hurt?
No. If anyone experiences discomfort during a session, it is usually gas working its way out of the colon. Once the discomfort passes, sensation of fullness will pass too and the cleaning process will continue.
Can you have too many colon irrigations?
Too much of good thing can be less than beneficial, like anything. Everyone is an individual and must consider their genetic makeup, lifestyle and nutritional habits. Best step in this case is to see a certified therapist and together you will be able to set up a schedule of treatments that are right for you.
Is there anything that needs to be done to get ready for Colon Hydrotherapy?
In order to have a good hydrated colon, it is important to drink plenty of water. Before getting a colonic it is best to have a hydrated colon. A day before receiving the treatment, drink 1 gallon of water.
Fresh vegetable juice is also good for the colon. It goes to work to help scrub the cells clean, like when we take a shower externally.
Be sure to eat something nourishing the day of a session (unless you are under a doctor’s care and fasting). Eating a meal 2-4 hours before your session is ideal. Do not eat or drink anything closer than two hours before a colonic.
Raw vegetable juice:
2 times a day (morning and night)
1 Red Beat
1 Red Apple
What should I know?
We always provide you with an oral Probiotic blend of lactobacillus/acidophilus after every colonic. Why? Both good and bad bacteria are eliminated during a colonic. Re-inoculating your system with good bacteria after a session promotes your body’s ability to create the intestinal flora on its own. When good bacteria thrive, bad bacteria cannot develop as easily in the system.
Do not eat anything (such as a salad), spicy, or rich (heavy sauces) after a colonic. You want to pamper your system with light and easy to digest foods after a colonic. Good examples would be grilled or steamed vegetables, light proteins such as chicken or fish, or the best choice are soups (no cream bases). Avoid alcohol the day of session.
Can you catch diseases from the equipment?
No, we use disposable equipment.
What is the session like? How does it work?
The colon hydrotherapy session begins with the client lying comfortably on one side, while the practitioner assists with the gentle insertion of a small disposable tube into the anus. Through this tube, purified water is slowly infused into the colon. Afterwards, the outflow of the water releases excess gas, mucus feces and infectious substances. Because the purified water flows into and out of the colon through the same tube, there is no mess or odor whatsoever. The pressure, temperature(90-104F), and exit flow of the water is closely monitored by the practitioner, and the water pressure is safely regulated from .25 to 1.5 psi(pressure). Colon Hydrotherapy sessions are relaxing and soothing as well as extremely energizing, and the client is always discreetly covered to maintain personal dignity.
What are the steps to Colon Hydrotherapy?
1. Exercises the Colon Muscles: The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning over time. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves muscular contraction activity by which the colon naturally moves material outward.
2. Cleanse the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. even debris built up over years is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series colon hydrotherapy treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can once again begin to cooperate as mother nature so intended.
3. Stimulates reflex points: Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. Colon hydrotherapy stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.
4. Reshapes the colon: When problematic condition exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape which over time causes more problems. The gentle action of the colon hydrotherapy session in combination with the massage techniques by the colon therapist will help to eliminate building pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
