What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, is the infusion of ultra filtered warm water into the colon via the rectum. Gentle flushing of the colon softens faecal waste and impacted solids that may have collected over time and washes them away.
Our specially designed equipment uses gravity-fed water flow and is very safe.
Our colon hydrotherapists assist clients as required, ensuring comfort, safety and the highest standards of hygiene.
What are the Goals of Each Treatment?
1. Hydrate the body…
2. Soften and remove hardened toxic faecal matter…
3. Stimulate and strengthen the nerves, muscles, glands, circulatory and immune components of the digestive system to enhance appropriate function and elimination.
4. Stimulate peristalsis (the natural wavelike muscular movement that moves waste through the intestines)…
5. Cleanse the intestinal wall to allow better nutrient absorption.
How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions will depend on the individual needs of each client. Most people on the standard Kiwi-style diet will need a series of six to eight treatments fairly close together to receive a thorough cleansing of the colon. Then a monthly maintenance treatment is suggested to keep the colon cleaned and toned.
What is the colon?
The colon is the last five feet of the digestive tract. It is a hollow, tubelike organ made up of muscle structure that moves digested food along by a wavelike notion known as peristaltic action.
The colon is the living area for a host of bacteria that produce vitamins, such as K and some B vitamins. The colon also absorbs water, nutrients, proteins and cell salts back into the blood stream.
What can I expect from colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist, the body for a wide variety of different colon-related conditions. By retuning the bowel wall & improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more efficiently.
Will colon hydrotherapy help even though I have suffered from constipation for a long time?
According to Dr. John Kellogg, M.D., Founder of Kellogg Cereals. “The cause of a disease so universal in civilized communities must be very numerous to produce this condition in so great a number of people living under many different conditions and with different habits of life.
In general, it may be said that the cause of constipation are abnormal habits or conditions of life, the result of what we call civilization.
Primitive man rarely suffered from constipation!”
Dr, Kellogg said adults are more likely to suffer from constipation than children, although the malady begins early in life. He further states that women are more subject than men to intestinal activity. In fact, he said four-fifths of all women suffer from constipation from their youth, onward. Briefly summarizing the several acts by which the colon empties are:
1. contraction of the diaphragm-occurs in deep breathing.
2. contraction of the abdominal muscle.
3. pressure of the thighs against abdomen. (as in squatting position assumed by primitive man) reflex contraction of abdominal muscles.
4. contraction of the colon.
5. relaxation of the anus.
6. contraction of the levator-ani muscles.
Any influence which interferes with a single one of these may cause constipation!
Note: special made stools/steps placed around toilet to accomplish the squatting position are available to purchase from most Therapistis.
Will only one session do the job?
One session will empty part of the colon. As many doctors have written in health books, I also recommend two sessions the first week, (back to back- one today, one tomorrow ) two sessions the second week, and one a week for the nest eight weeks.
After the fifth session, I have found that the colon starts to release the old, sludge waste.
After completion of all twelve sessions, most clients return every couple of months for maintenance purposes.
Each person will determine when to return.
What effect will colon hydrotherapy have on my skin, allergies, etcetera?
Many clients have reported that colon hydrotherapy has cleared up acne, allergies, as well as asthma.
They also tell me about the increase in energy, and how calm they feel. Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure for a wide variety of many health problems. By retuning and improving elimination, we remove the number one source of disease in the body.
In addition, we open up the bowel to a more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption, both of which are essential to any lasting healing process. This is also the first step towards normalizing the bowel so that the friendly bacteria will return to keep the colon safe from putrefaction and any further autointoxication.
Is Colon Hydrotherapy habit – forming?
Colon hydrotherapy retrains the muscle or the bowel to regain strength. After a series, most people regain the normal bowel function of one movement per day. A healthy bowel may have two to three bowel movements a day, depending on what you eat. Trouble is usually first recognized by an individual as constipation or diarrhea. These danger signs along with foul – smelling stool and gas may be overlooked. Golden brown used to be considered the normal colour, but now that vegetables are recommended the colour reflects the vegetables.
During constipation, you may observe a darkening of the stool because of the much longer transition time in your system. The colon will distribute the results of decay, fermentation and putrefaction into the blood.
