Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, painless and effective way to remove large quantities of lifetime waste and toxins from the colon, which improves the condition of the entire body allowing it to resist diseases.
Due to its impressive tissue cleansing results which are experienced even after the initial treatment, it is becoming part of regular therapeutical and preventative medical programmes.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy
It is a safe gentle infusion of warm filtered water (using state of the art equipment) into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs.
This is a restorative painless procedure which is both relaxing and effective, unlike enemas which only cleans part of the colon.
The individual is comfortably lying on the table, while the therapist gently inserts a small speculum attached to a hose into the rectum. Only pre-sterilized disposable hoses and speculum are used thus ensuring utmost cleanliness, safety and no danger of contamination. The therapist then allows the water to flow in under gentle pressure, monitoring the temperature and water volume. This procedure lasts between 35-45 mins. Water and dislodged toxic waste from the colon are then flushed out through the hose in a closed system, avoiding any offensive odour and maintaining the dignity of the individual. A gentle manipulation and massage of the abdomen maybe be given before or during the procedure to help relax and assist in the elimination process
What will colon hydrotherapy do to the colon?
Colonic is used to accomplish the following:
- It cleanses the colon: Toxic materials are broken down so they can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation or elimination. Once the imparted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was meant to.
- It exercises the colon muscles: The gentle feeling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves the material.
- It re-shapes the colon: The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the massage therapist, helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions, finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
- It stimulates reflex points: Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colonic irrigation stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.
How many treatments should I get?
Generally, it depends on your health objective, but in the initial series, six to eight consecutive daily treatments are recommended. Even though a person feels relief even after the first session, it is necessary to take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen the waste which is hard and deeply lodged in the colon. Especially if your goal is to overcome a lifelong habit of constipation, to achieve high energy, good health and to obtain long-lasting results. If you are ill, toxic or depressed, seven times a week is recommended after the initial series. Years of improper lifestyle and nutrition cannot possibly be reversed only in a few treatments. For best results, your colon hydrotherapist will assist you in designing the right programme just for you, based on your health objectives and present condition.
Can I eat before a colonic treatment?
It is a good idea to stop eating 2-3 hours before receiving treatment. Receiving a treatment on a full stomach might feel a little uncomfortable. It is also recommended that one follows a high carbohydrate, high fibre, low animal protein diet.
