Questions and Answers

What exactly is Colon Hydrotherapy?

This is a painless therapy that is relaxing and is an effective cleansing tool. The procedure starts with the client lying on a comfortable therapy table. The therapist gently inserts a small disposable speculum into the rectum. We only use sterilized and disposable tools during a procedure.

The therapy begins with a gentle flow of water using light pressure to allow the colon to be cleansed. The fecal matter and toxins are released from the colon. The therapist monitors the water pressure to ensure a relaxing and healing treatment experience. There is no odor and it is like a gentle colon massage. The treatment lasts about 30 to 45 minutes.

What is the colon?

  1. The colon is the last (5) five feet of the digestive tract. It is a hollow, tube like organ made up of muscle structure that moves digested food along by a wavelike motion known as peristaltic action.
  2. The colon is the living area for a host of bacteria that produce vitamins, such as K and some B vitamins.
  3. The colon also absorbs water, nutrients, proteins and cell salts back into the blood stream.

Will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same results?

To clean out the lower part of the colon, enemas are fine. But, you are missing about four feet of the colon. Laxatives are an irritant to the body. Therefore, the body produces a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste.

What effects do colonics have on the colon?

  1. "It cleanses the colon": Cleanse the Colon: Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination.
  2. It exercises the colon muscles: The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material.
  3. It reshapes the colon: The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the colon therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions.
  4. 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 (similar to reflexology).

Will One Colonic Completely Empty the Colon?

Almost never. Firstly, many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces in our colon. These are hardened, rubbery or wallpaper like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Secondly, there is a subtle learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learn how to allow the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will remove some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives?

How Many Treatments Should I Get?

Generally, it depends on your health objective, but in the initial series three to twelve treatments are recommended. Even though a person feels relief even after an initial session, it is necessary to take a series of colonics to, sufficiently, cleanse the colon. Especially, if your goal is to overcome constipation, to achieve high energy, good health and to obtain long lasting results. If you are ill, have low energy or feel like it is time to take better care of yourself than several times a week is recommended. Years of improper lifestyle and bad nutrition cannot possibly be reversed in a few treatments. For best results your colonic hydro- therapist will assist you in designing the right program just for you based on your objective and present condition.

Is Colon Hydrotherapy Painful?

It rarely is. Usually, painful experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A professional colon therapist is skilled at putting you at your ease and minimizing discomfort. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean and clear afterward. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping organs, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.

Is it Embarrassing to Have a Colonic?

No, you will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the colonic procedure and will help you feel at ease. Your emotions will be acknowledged and honored. After the gentle insertion of a small tube into the rectum, you are completely covered. Rubber tubing carries clean water in and waste out. The mess and odor sometimes present during an enema simply does not exist with a colonic.

Can I Eat Before Colonic Treatment?

It is a good idea to stop eating a couple of hours before receiving a treatment. Receiving a colonic on a full stomach might feel a little uncomfortable. It is also recommended that one follows a low carbohydrate, high fiber and low animal protein diet.

After a session, how might I expect to feel?

Most people remark on how clean & light they feel. "Like I just took a bath on the inside!" Increased energy and feelings of well-being are the common responses.

Will it be Okay to Eat After Having a Colonic?

We suggest that you eat at your normal meal time, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn't make sense to have you car cleaned and then immediately drive it through mud. Eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a colonic isn't an intelligent choice. Salads, vegetable soups or broths, fruit, or juices are the best choice.

Will a Colonic Make Me Constipated or Give Me Diarrhea?

The most frequent post-colonic experience is to have as light delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. However this is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the colon, and should be interpreted as an indication that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Very infrequently diarrhea or loose bowels may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon to the stirring up of toxic waste. If this should occur, it is usually of very short duration. However, since severe diarrhea dehydrates the body, it must be carefully monitored.

NOT ME!

Have you ever said the following: "I am never constipated." OR "I go to the bathroom on a regular basis everyday. I do not need to cleanse my body. Many people are unaware they have colon problems. Often times the entire length of the colon is completely packed with old, hardened fecal matter, leaving only a thin, narrow channel for small feces (body waste) to pass through. This condition is commonly called "Tunnel Elimination"

This is what an unhealthy and clogged colon can look like when not taken care of. Think of the shock of the woman whose x-ray is reproduced here. She never complained of constipation and thought she was normal because she had three bowel movements nearly every day.
