Q: WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
A: Colon hydrotherapy, otherwise known as colonic or colon irrigation, is a safe and effective way of cleansing the large intestine, your colon, of waste, build-up, and impacted material. A gentle stream of purified water is infused into the colon through a small rectal tube and then eliminated. This gentle process of flushing is repeated throughout your treatment allowing opportunity for water to reach the furthest point of the colon’s approximate 5-6 foot length for optimum waste elimination. This method of cleansing has been practiced in different forms throughout history, and is recommended by doctors all around the world.
Q: DO I NEED COLONICS?
A: With the amount of processing our food goes through and chemicals added to it, our colons cannot keep up with the elimination needed to keep us healthy. As a result, we suffer from digestive disorders, fatigue, headaches and body pains, premature aging, sicknesses and immune disorders, and the list goes on. Even with a clean, healthy, nutritional diet we cannot get away from the toxins in our environment. With a clean colon our body can retrieve nutrients and hydration from it, properly eliminate waste and maintain healthy flora (beneficial bacteria). Quite simply put – our bodies are machines. When a machine is well maintained, it will perform at its very best.
Q: IS IT SAFE?
A: Absolutely. It is all done with a disposable speculum and tubing. The purified water goes one way in and one way out. There is no risk of contamination. The disposable speculum is gently inserted only 2-3 inches into the rectum for filtered water infusion and release. The colonic instrument is equipped with a pressure gauge and valve, reducing the water pressure down to 1/5 to 1/2 pounds of pressure. The temperature is between 92 to 100 degrees. The instrument is FDA approved for colon cleansing use.
Q: WILL IT HURT?
A: No. If you do experience pain, it’s because the colon is not used to working so efficiently or it’s trying to push out dry, hard fecal matter. When the colon can’t push fecal matter out on a daily basis with ease, it becomes weak in tone. Colonics help to increase colon muscle strength. While the colon is working, you may experience some abdominal cramping which only lasts a few minutes. It is best to relax and let the colon do its job. The pain will disappear once the colon strengthens and gets rid of the old fecal matter.
Q: CAN I BECOME DEPENDENT ON COLONICS?
A: No. In fact, Colonics exercise the colon muscle making it stronger, helping it to perform better naturally. Having a Colonic is like going to the gym for your colon. During a Colonic treatment your colon has to do the work of pushing out the water and the loosened fecal matter. The more Colonics you have the stronger your colon can become.
Due to some medical conditions there are some people who will unfortunately spend much or most of their lives on medications that will make it difficult if not impossible to have natural, regular bowel movements. In these cases, Colonics can offer a lot of relief for those dependent on those medications.
