What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a colon therapy session.
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 re-toning the bowel wall and improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more effectively.
What is the Colon?
The colon is the last 5 feet of the digestive tract. It is approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter. It is a hollow, tubelike organ made up of muscle structure that moves digested food along by a wavelike motion 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. Its major functions are to eliminate waste, keep the body hydrated, and to reabsorb electrolytes and minerals.
When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time it breaks down and becomes toxic. The toxicity can consist of impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, mucus, parasites, worms, etc. The body responds to this poisonous condition by slowing down other functions. This causes constipation and sluggish bowel movements which affect all other systems of the body. When the poisons re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream, we can feel ill, tired or weak.
What Happens During a Colon Hydrotherapy Session?
Colon Hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of water into the colon via the rectum. No chemicals or drugs are involved and the entire therapy is both relaxing and effective.
If a client is new to hydrotherapy, the first session will be longer. To get to know you better, we have a number of forms to fill out, and a health questionnaire. We will spend time discussing your questions, and we will explain to you our FDA approved colon therapy equipment. You will be shown the disposable (one use only) speculum in its package, and explained the insertion procedure.
The next step is where the client will lay on their left side in the Sims position during their insertion of the speculum. The therapist will assist the client in the insertion, and then the client will be urged to get comfortable in a resting position on their back, with head and shoulders raised. The client is covered at all times. Warm, body temperature water will then be inserted through the speculum into the body through our FDA approved HydroSan Hydrotherapy Equipment.
This equipment employs multi-stage water purification systems. It is a closed system, so waste is discreetly transported into the drain line without offensive odor and without any compromise of your dignity. After each therapy session, the unit is thoroughly cleansed and disinfected in preparation for future use.
Each colon hydrotherapy session lasts approximately 45 minutes and you should allow at least one hour per office visit. Depending upon your health objectives, we offer colon hydrotherapy for a reduced price when you buy more than one session at a time. It usually takes more than one session to achieve the maximum cleansing benefit.
