Colon Hydrotherapy (Colonics)
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but can be a valuable means of relief for a wide variety of different health challenges.
A toxic bowel is the source of many health problems. Old, toxic mucosal lining of the bowel, the folds and pockets and what many believe to be the number one source of disease in the body "can" cleansed and revived. In addition, the bowel is open to a more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption, both of which are essential to any lasting healing process. This also may be the first step toward normalizing the bowel so that the friendly bacteria will flourish to keep the colon safe from putrefaction and further auto-intoxication.
The toxins in the fecal matter are absorbed by the colon wall and re-circulate through the blood stream; this process is called ‘autointoxication’. As these toxins circulate the body, the lymphatic, circulatory systems, liver, lungs and kidneys become overburdened and when these systems are unable to cope with this toxic overload your body becomes at risk for serious health problems.
Symptoms of colontoxication include:
- difficult weight loss
- foul body/breath odor
- chronic fatigue
- frequent colds
- lack of mental focus
- poor vision
We all have toxins
When your colon is unable to remove waste and bacteria from your body efficiently, it "could" cause illness and poor health. These are five reasons why colonics in conjunction with an internal colon cleanse should be done, at the very least,,, seasonally.
Every day, you ingest foods that have dangerous chemicals on them which will disrupt your immune system. Your immune system helps keep your body free from illness and helps you heal. When it becomes compromised, you will become more prone to illness.
When your colon is unable to effectively pass toxins out of the body, they stay there and can slow down your healing process. They will get reabsorbed into your body and "could" cause you to get sick (autointoxication may occur).
Drinking alcohol or taking over the counter medications or drinking a lot of coffee can put a lot of stress on your colon.
Most people do not get enough fiber in their daily diet. Instead, most people eat diets that consist of a lot of fat and sugar. This causes the build up in your colon. Most people have between five and ten pounds of this build up just sitting in their colon and "can", cause many health problems.
The harm that an impacted colon can cause you will not happen overnight. Instead, it is a long and drawn out process, so it is too late for many people when the really severe problems begin to happen.
Colon Hydrotherapy Explanation
Practitioner (name) will leave the Treatment room while you remove lower undergarments in privacy and put on a treatment gown. Modesty and confidentiality are maintained at all times.
Filtered water at a carefully regulated temperature is introduced under gentle gravitational pressure through the rectum into the colon. With special massage techniques, the water softens and cleanses the colon of faecal matter and old deposits which are then piped away with the waste water.
Treatment time is about 30 - 40 minutes but you should plan a total of one hour duration. The first session will be longer as medical history is taken to highlight any existing bowel problems.
Treatments are much safer than a common enema and it doesn't hurt.
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with Colonic Hydrotherapy the entire length of the colon is reached. One Colonic Hydrotherapy treatment is equivalent to 30 enemas.
All equipment is fully sterilised according to the requirements of the state and the Association of Colon Hydrotherapist so there is absolutely no danger of contamination.
Since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins some people may possibly experience minor nausea or fatigue (rarely occurs) and will quickly pass.
A menstrual period at the time of a Colonic Hydrotherapy session will not affect the success of the treatment
No special preparation is necessary although it is advisable to avoid having a large meal just before your treatment.
Certainly, you can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement. Again, there are no special precautions but as a Colonic is a detox, eat lightly, avoiding spicy / fatty foods and alcohol for the rest of the day

By retaining the coffee solution in the colon, the caffeine is absorbed through the colon wall and brought directly to the liver. Absorbing the caffeine in this fashion (as opposed to digesting it) causes the liver’s portal vein to dilate, the bile ducts to expand, and the bile flow to increase. This causes muscles to relax, and a large flushing of toxic bile from the body. Coffee infusions help remove toxins from the liver quickly and safely. They often provide quick relief when fatigued, sleepy or headachy. They can reduce pain, and difficulties resulting in the withdrawal from all intoxicating substances.
This allows for greater viability of a much larger population of the probiotic than just oral consumption. This is because the probiotic does not have to survive it’s way through hydrochloric acid and other extremes in pH before it arrives at the colon. A probiotic infusion is a solution of healthy and beneficial intestinal bacteria that is introduced directly into the colon. Fermentation in the intestines causes increased bloating and flatulence. Putrification in the intestines is indicated by odorous flatulence and stools. But these
conditions are no longer isolated to world travelers! By supplementing the intestinal flora with beneficial bacteria , you can replace what might have been destroyed or disrupted. This is best done following colon hydrotherapy, Generally, within three days, there is ease in defecation, reduction in gas and bloating. Stool should float – stools float when friendly intestinal bacteria produce short chain fatty acids causing them to be lighter than water.
