A colonic, or colon hydrotherapy, is the gentle rinsing of the colon with warm water, to remove encrusted fecal matter, gas, and mucus. This allows better elimination of waste and toxins and better assimilation of vital nutrients, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and healthier. Colonics are a safe and gentle way to remove toxic waste that interferes with the body's natural processes that can contribute to pain, inflammation, and disease, including depression and anxiety, gas and bloating, arthritis and gout, weight gain, headaches, fatigue, body odor, skin problems, yeast infections, nail fungus, and more. Colonics can also help tone and reshape the colon.
Colon hydrotherapy involves the safe, gentle infusion of water into the colon via the rectum. No chemicals or drugs are involved and the entire therapy is both relaxing and effective. A healthy well-functioning bowel is essential for the maintenance of optimal health. This vital organ is one of the most neglected in the human body.
The digestive system is designed to eliminate waste after each and every meal. Really?! Yes, really. Just think about it. What happens after you feed your baby or your dog? They go to the bathroom shortly after. Every living thing on the planet eliminates shortly after a meal. One in, one out. That is a sign of a healthy colon. Our modern day diets create residue that builds up in the colon. It is not uncommon to have 5-20 lbs of toxic waste putrefying in the colon. Think about what happens if you let the trash pile up, it attracts microbes such as pathogenic bacteria, yeast, fungus, parasites, and other bugs (natures "cleaner uppers") which starts to rot and smell, and that is exactly what is happening in your body! Ick!
We were meant to eat a predominantly raw vegetarian diet with small amounts of meat when it is available. Plants grow everywhere and should be our main food source. It takes effort to hunt animals because they are fast and some are dangerous to us. This is mother nature’s way of limiting the amount of meat we consume, but plants grow everywhere abundantly and unlike meat, contain ALL the elements our bodies need to remain healthy such as water, vitamins, minerals, fiber, living enzymes, fat, and protein. Nowhere in nature can you pick bread, pasta, cereal, a glass of milk, or cheese from the ground, off a tree, or a from a bush. These are not natural foods and they can contribute to a clogged colon, which leads to symptoms and disease.
Many clients just do an occasional colonic if they are feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Colonics are an instant way to get relief in about 30 minutes. If you are looking to start cleansing the body on a deeper level consider doing 3 colonics within a 7 day period. The idea is to loosen deeper layers of impacted waste with each session. Some people need more sessions, but 3 is a good place to start.
The colonic machine is an FDA approved medical device. All supplies are disposable and hygienic. The client lies comfortably on a treatment table completely covered during the session. Purified water is slowly introduced into the large intestine, and then the water and waste leave the body through tubing that is connected directly into the city sewer lines. There is no need to get up and down off the table until the session is over. There should be no discomfort and the session is gentle. When you are done you can resume your normal daily activities.
