Colon Therapy

Colon Therapy

Colon Therapy reduces toxins that build up on the walls of the colon. By washing the colon, the blood flow increases. Increased blood flow boosts metabolism, stimulates lymph flow, improves digestion, promotes regularity of bowel movement, and increases energy level.

Cleansing your colon is like cleaning your air conditioner filter making your air conditioner run more efficiently and improving air quality. The three main functions of the colon are:

  • Final digestion of our food.
  • The elimination of digestive residue.
  • The discharge of toxins and wastes from our body.

We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up into our system and pollute our inner environment. This is called auto-intoxication which literally means “self-poisoning.” All the body’s tissues are affected by the auto-intoxication.

Colon Therapy helps with diseasements,  such as, diverticulitis, Crohn’s Disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, candida, and gastrointestinal disorders.

What causes auto-intoxication?

  • Improper diet
  • Insufficient exercise
  • Stress
  • Overeating
  • Ignoring the “call of nature”

What can I do about it?

A colonic irrigation will cleanse the colon and assist in the elimination of the toxins.  It is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, and accumulated fecal matter. Unlike an enema, it does not require the retention of water. There is no discomfort, no internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the colon. At the same time, an abdominal, massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover its natural shape, tone, and peristaltic which is a wave action.

What are the benefits of colonic irrigation?

Colonics help relieve a variety of disturbances:

  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Skin problems
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Lethargy
  • Chronic diarrhea.

Your sense of well-being is often dramatically improved with colon irrigations. You feel lighter, more energetic. The body can again assimilate food in the colon and better defend itself against disease. Natural peristalsis, tone and regularity are restored and many serious diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique.

Colonics are a key factor in the restoration of the body’s natural balance or what we call good health.

How does my diet contribute to colon toxicity?

For years most of us have eaten poor to average nutritional food. Much of our food is subjected to processing which includes refining and saturating the mineral elements of our food with oil or grease. As a result the digestive organs cannot process the minerals efficiently and they are passed out of the small intestine into the colon as waste.

Making things worse, consuming too much mucous producing food, such as meat, dairy, and processed flour – especially glutens — cause dense sticky bowel movements. Excess mucous in our system is a sign of trouble because mucosic stools are difficult for the body to eliminate. When they are expelled, they leave a glue-like coating on the wall of the colon which accumulates layer by layer into a hard rubbery crust.

Incompletely digested food ferments and putrefies when remaining in the colon longer than a day sticking to the wall of the colon. When this fermented waste combines with the body’s own bile acids from the liver, carcinogens can form and can ultimately develop into colon or rectal cancers.

The body cannot eliminate these hardened layers on its own. Enhancing the colon’s ability to expedite the elimination of waste reduces the risks of developing health problems.

How is a colonic administered?

You will lie on a table 31″ below a temperature-controlled input tank. A sterile speculum is gently inserted into your rectum. Water flows slowly into your colon via a small water tube and out the evacuation tube carrying with it impacted feces and mucous. As the water flows out of your colon, your therapist will gently massage your abdomen to help the colon release it’s contents. It is possible to see this expelled waste matter when it passes through the evacuation tube. You will be well covered in a flannel gown and flannel drape as your modesty is given top priority during the procedure.

Will colonics damage the normal intestinal flora?

No. When the colon walls are encrusted, the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora and the growth of the friendly bacteria is stunted. Cleansing the colon will help bring the acid-alkaline ratio back into balance. In this environment, the friendly bacteria will again thrive and disease causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop.

Are there side effects to colonics?

There are none. It is not uncommon; however, for some people to experience flu symptoms, such as headaches. Toxins which have been lying dormant in the colon are now being flushed out and a small amount may be reabsorbed into the body’s system. This healing crisis passes quickly and the person realizes a feeling of well-being with further treatments.
