What Should I Know About Colon Hydrotherapy?
Often referred to as a colonic or colon hydrotherapy, colonic irrigation is recognized as a highly beneficial approach to the health care of the colon. A colonic irrigation treatment is an internal bath that uses a professionally designed equipment to give a high irrigation of the colon (large intestine).
When you think colonics, you may have some unpleasant associations with hospital or home enemas; but you owe it to your health to research the many positive benefits of this gentle yet essential cleansing therapy. In fact, colon hydrotherapy is one of the oldest foundations of vitality and longevity.
Basic health begins with colon care. Current scientific evidence shows that a properly functioning colon is beneficial to overall health. Eliminating undigested food particles, glandular and cellular debris, excess mucus, gas and parasites play an essential part in the digestive and assimilative process.
Due to technologies of food processing — the use of preservatives, pesticides, herbicides, and chemical and hormonal food additives — the need for cleansing the colon has never been greater. The bowel may try to shuttle some of its excess waste to other eliminating organs, like the lungs or skin, which overloads the lymphatic system. Many of these toxins are reabsorbed into the bloodstream, lymph, liver, and nervous system, thus straining and eventually weakening the body’s defense against viruses and foreign bacteria.
The result is a breakdown which affects the body as a whole. This increased toxic load on those organs contributes to the problems associated with the colon: constipation, toxemia, colitis, Diverticulitis, diarrhea, skin blemishes(like acne, psoriasis, pimples), bad breath or body odor, low back pain, headaches and nausea — just to name a few. The waste may be deposited in tissues or joints, causing pains and inflammation, like fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue.
Experts inform us that a healthy bowel moves after every meal; most of us are delighted with once a day and too many Americans have even poorer eliminations.
Colonic irrigation helps to clean out the accumulation of stagnant toxin-producing matter in the colon pockets and keep the colon muscles toned. With improved muscle tone, the colon is able to most efficiently remove waste products from the body. Purification of the systems of the body helps restore internal balance and overall health.
Also, we need to consider the health of each cell. It’s been shown that cell fluid is essentially immortal, it never “dies.” But if it becomes dehydrated or overloaded with cell waste that cannot be eliminated efficiently, it gets old and functions more and more poorly. So the colon doesn’t just get rid of what we eat, it also needs to process out waste from individual cells and tissues via the lymphatic system which also dumps into the colon. Hopefully, you can now appreciate that healthy elimination is critical to your health and a clean colon is essential to good eliminations.
What Can You Expect From Your Colonic Session?
The application is a safe, gentle, restorative, relaxing and effective. The colonic session takes about 45 minutes but we schedule an hour for your comfort level. The equipment is a closed system with disposable tubes and fittings; the out-bound tubing allows you to remain on the treatment table for both infusion and release. The water used in the colonic is filtered 3 times and set to body temperature for the best results. A hospital gown and sheets ensure complete coverage for modesty and warmth.
Pressure is closely monitored and regulated during a series of fills and releases to aid in the peristaltic action of the colon. It is slowly released into the colon to begin softening the build-up that lines the bowel, inhibiting its function. Just as gently, it is released over a few minutes, then more is allowed to flow in. We repeat the process several times so that gradually the entire colon may receive a gentle flushing. The equipment used is an enclosed system, the waste materials are removed without the unpleasant odors or discomfort usually associated with enemas. You will feel the pressure of the fill and may ask for a release of your technician.
To achieve a thorough cleansing of the colon and healthy peristalsis, you may want to schedule a series of colonics initially. Your therapist will be able to help you determine your own individual needs. After that, a few times yearly will stimulate healthy cells and eliminate waste from your body.
When you combine colon hydrotherapy with good nutrition, fiber in your diet, sufficient water intake and regular exercise to keep it all moving along, you will be giving your body everything it needs to stay as strong, healthy and youthful as possible.
