What is Colon Hydrotherapy
It is a safe gentle infusion of warm filtered water (using state of the art equipment) into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. This is a restorative painless procedure which is both relaxing and effective, unlike enemas which only cleans part of the colon. The individual is comfortably lying on the table, while the therapist gently inserts a small speculum attached to a hose into the rectum. Only pre-sterilized disposable hoses and speculum are used thus ensuring utmost cleanliness, safety and no danger of contamination. The therapist then allows the water to flow in under gentle pressure, monitoring the temperature and water volume. This procedure lasts between 35-45 mins. Water and dislodged toxic waste from the colon are then flushed out through the hose in a closed system, avoiding any offensive odour and maintaining the dignity of the individual. A gentle manipulation and massage of the abdomen maybe be given before or during the procedure to help relax and assist in the elimination process
Not For Me?
Have you ever said “I’ve never been constipated!” or “I eliminate three times a day, I don’t need to cleanse”? Such statements may well be true, however, many people are not aware that they could have a colon problem and they are usually in the worst condition of all!
The entire length of the colon is completely packed with old, hardened faecal matter, leaving only a thin, narrow tunnel for small faeces (body waste) to pass through. This condition is commonly called tunnel elimination.
What will colon hydrotherapy do to the colon?
Colonic is used to accomplish the following:
- It cleanses the colon: Toxic materials are broken down so they can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation or elimination. Once the imparted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was meant to.
- It exercises the colon muscles: The gentle feeling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves the material.
- It re-shapes the colon: The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the massage therapist, helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions, finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
- 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.
How many treatments should I get?
Generally, it depends on your health objective, but in the initial series, six to eight consecutive daily treatments are recommended. Even though a person feels relief even after the first session, it is necessary to take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen the waste which is hard and deeply lodged in the colon. Especially if your goal is to overcome a lifelong habit of constipation, to achieve high energy, good health and to obtain long-lasting results. If you are ill, toxic or depressed, seven times a week is recommended after the initial series. Years of improper lifestyle and nutrition cannot possibly be reversed only in a few treatments. For best results, your colon hydrotherapist will assist you in designing the right programme just for you, based on your health objectives and present condition.
Can I eat before a colonic treatment?
It is a good idea to stop eating 2-3 hours before receiving treatment. Receiving a treatment on a full stomach might feel a little uncomfortable. It is also recommended that one follows a high carbohydrate, high fibre, low animal protein diet.
Colon hydrotherapy preparations/1st Session?
Please prepare yourself the day before your session by drinking a few litres of water throughout the day to ensure that you are well hydrated for your session. Eat healthy and nourishing foods the day of your colon hydrotherapy session, unless you are fasting. Eat a meal 2-4 hours before is ideal, but no food or beverage should be consumed in the 2 hours before your appointment. You are in the process of taking very good care of yourself, so remember to allow for the time and space you need to be in a calm state of mind. Your body responds best to treatments when it is relaxed: deep breathing, laughing, exercising, soothing music and positive, supportive environment, all help facilitate this peaceful state. Eating lots of raw salads is also fantastic as it helps to scrub like a brush through the large intestines and helps to move unwanted debris through. Try to avoid dairy products, dried foods and sugar for as long as possible.
After Colonic session
After your session, we will supply you with probiotics. During a colonic, some of the good bacteria, along with the bad, may be eliminated from your colon. The probiotics will re-inoculate your system with the good bacteria you need. You may want to sit and relax with us for some time after your session and have a cup of tea or a piece of fruit until you feel you have finished eliminating and have fully replenished your system and energy level. We also ask that you eat very light, purer and easy to digest foods for the remainder of the day. Try to stay away from raw, overly rich and heavy foods. Try to stay away from alcohol because it is just too strong for a freshly cleansed system. It is fine to carry on with your normal daily routine or even return to work as you feel. If you are looking to continue to make more natural choices, we offer a high-quality line of organic supplements for purchase to continue your nutritional needs at home or on the go.
