leaf Colon Hydrotherapy
   
 

                     The idea of cleansing ones colon has been well documented in many                      civilizations as far back as 5000 years ago. Doctors performed colonics                      on a more primitive system on all patients in the early 1900’s up until the advent of modern medicine.

Colon hydrotherapy or colonics is a safe and effective method of gently cleansing the large intestine by introducing a small amount of water into the colon using FDA approved equipment. Waste materials and toxins are softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis.

In America, over two million people are diagnosed every year with colon cancer. Colon cancer is second to heart disease as the most frequent cause of death today, even though it is one of the most preventable forms of cancer!

The client comfortably lies on their back during the session and is always modestly draped. A small disposable tube is inserted through the rectum, where a waste tube is connected to the end. Water and waste exit through the waste tube which allows the therapists and client to see what is being eliminated from the body. The temperature of the water is adjusted throughout the session to achieve greater results. The process of filling is repeated several times throughout the session, which is approximately 45-50 minutes long. Each person is unique in the number of sessions they require initially and the frequency in between visits for maintenance. Colon hydrotherapy is a natural way to take a preventative approach to healthier living.

Even if we are eating a “healthy” diet, people still do not fully eliminate during a normal bowel movement. By the time the food reaches our large intestine it is no longer food, but waste products. With the SAD (Standard American Diet), people are literally “caked” inside from years of eating processed, refined foods, dairy, and meat. The average person holds between 10 to 20 pounds of dried, hard, encrusted fecal matter in their bodies! Can you imaging why so many people these days literally feel like “crap”? There is more blood flow to the large intestine than to the lungs, so with all of these toxic materials inside our bodies, they are easily reabsorbed into the bloodstream putting undo stress on our immune system, tissues, and organs. Ideally, one should eliminate after every meal, however I have seen people who only go once every 3 weeks! Where does all of the waste that results from the ingested food end up? Through colonics, one can greatly improve their eliminations. 

Dental hygiene is a standard in this country to assist in maintaining proper health in order to prevent unnecessary tooth loss and decay. We brush and floss our teeth daily and yet we go to the dental hygienist every 6 months to have plaque scraped off of our teeth! If all of that plaque accumulates on our teeth and gums after all that brushing and flossing, imagine what is happening inside our digestive organs even if we are having daily eliminations!
