Colon Hydrotherapy

What is Colonic Irrigation?

Colonic irrigation (colon hydrotherapy) is the gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the large intestine (colon) via the rectum. The water is infused under carefully regulated pressure through modern equipment. When the colon has taken enough water, the therapist will gently massage the area to encourage the water to move through the length of the colon. The water will then be emptied from the colon, again through the equipment, bringing with it the impacted waste matter, which has accumulated over the days, months, and even years!

Who Needs the Treatment?

Just about everyone! Health begins in the colon and so does illness.Taking colonic irrigation will help Irritable Bowel Syndrome, flatulence, bloating, digestive problems, headaches and migraine. You will feel more energized; your skin will become clearer. Often pre-existing conditions that appear to be unconnected will disappear. Recent research has found colonics to be most beneficial for those suffering from M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and Candida. As you can see; health really does begin in the colon.Colon toxicity can be the underlying cause of many of these commonly reported health problems:

Constipation Headaches Hemorrhoids
Backaches Arthritis Allergies
Diarrhea Distended Abdomen Bad Breath/Halitosis
Skin Problems Chronic Fatigue Asthma
Irritability Depression Prostate Trouble
Difficult Weight Loss Frequent Colds Hypoglycemia
Insomnia Food Cravings Abdominal Gas
Hypertension Foul Body Odor Menstrual Problems

Do the Treatments Hurt?

No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing. Some report feeling the need to pass gas. The practitioner can vary the water’s temperature and pressure based on the patient’s comfort level. Also, there is no dash to the toilet as during the entire process you will be laying comfortably on a bed.The patient may expel considerable gas during and/or after the first few treatments. It usually takes a few treatments before one starts dislodging old encrusted feculent matter. One should remember that it usually takes years for the colon to become clogged up with its own waste products.

Benefits which may be accomplished by Colon Hydrotherapy

It Cleanses

Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Fecal debris built up over a long period is gently removed over a series of irrigations. Once this impacted material is removed, your colon can again begin its normal elimination function. A colon hydrotherapy session may be considered a rejuvenation treatment for your body.

It Exercises

The build-up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its function. Gentle filling and emptying of the colon can improve peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity, which aids efficient removal of waste material.

It Reshapes

Over time, the natural shape of a problematic colon will become distorted, causing even more problems. The gentle water action and massage techniques of the therapist will help eliminate protruding pockets of waste and narrow, spastic constrictions. After a series of colon hydrotherapy treatments, the colon gradually begins to resume its natural shape.

It Stimulates Reflex Points

Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colon hydrotherapy session stimulates these reflex points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts… In a beneficial way, similar to reflexology
