Colon hydrotherapy is a method of cleansing the large intestine with a gentle stream of purified water. Detoxifying the body through colon cleansing is not a new idea. It’s been practiced in one form or another for thousands of years. Thanks to new advances in technology, it‘s reached an optimal level of hygiene, convenience, safety and comfort.
Periodic colon cleansing helps to eliminate toxins and maintain beneficial flora, and encourages healthy peristalsis (muscle movement) of the colon. Colon hydrotherapy is an important component of a health-maintenance program in addition to a diet which includes ample amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, regular exercise, and a positive attitude. In today’s environment, where exposure to chemicals in the air and food is an increasing concern to many people, cleansing the colon of excess toxins contributes to health and longevity.
No. While both methods use water to cleanse the colon, colon hydrotherapy has several significant advantages. Unlike an enema, it does not require toilet facilities; waste is eliminated directly into the drain line while the client lies comfortably on a table. Colon hydrotherapy provides an extensive cleansing of the entire length of the colon, whereas an enema briefly cleanses the lower one-third of the colon. The pressure and rate of flow is far milder in colon hydrotherapy. The gentle action of warm water under mild pressure, in conjunction with skilled colon palpation, accounts for the impressive results achieved in colon hydrotherapy.
A gentle stream of water is repeatedly infused into the colon through a small rectal tube, and then eliminated. The therapist monitors water temperature and pressure according to the patient’s needs.
Your colon performs the vital functions of absorbing water and minerals from digested food, and eliminating waste. It is approximately 5-6 feet long, 2.5 inches in diameter, and is composed of 3 muscle layers, nerves, blood vessels and mucous membrane lining.
Rhythmic muscle contractions move waste from one end to the other for elimination. A diet high in refined foods, excessive fats, low water intake and fiber, and lack of exercise all contribute to disrupting full and complete waste elimination. Consequently, the colon becomes sluggish, overloaded and toxic, as waste accumulates in its folds and crevices. This polluted environment becomes a fertile breeding ground for a host of harmful bacteria and yeast, whose by-products contribute to the toxic load.
As these poisons are slowly re-absorbed into the bloodstream, vitality and energy are depleted, and a whole array of seemingly unrelated symptoms appears. Colon hydrotherapy is designed to gently wash away the build-up debris, excessive mucus, overgrowth of yeast and harmful bacteria, restoring the colon to health. The alternating warm and cool water stream and massage can help to restore proper nerve function and muscle tone, thus restoring proper elimination.
