Considering colonic irrigation?

What is colonic irrigation?

Colon hydrotherapy (colonic irrigation) is a body-based hydrotherapy treatment. During a colon hydrotherapy session, water is gently introduced into the large intestine through the anus in a controlled manner by a qualified therapist or self-administered under the guidance of a qualified therapist. The purpose of colon hydrotherapy is to achieve the optimal bowel function through the restoration of fluid, matter and gas balance, removal of excess wastes and exercise to the large intestine for the benefit of assisting absorption, assimilation and elimination which is instrumental in maintaining health and wellbeing of the body and mind. – Also read the advice given by the NHS on colonics

(Self-administered unsupervised or unguided introduction of water into the large intestine of any nature cannot be described as colon hydrotherapy and falls into broad category of enemas).

    What are signs of a colon that is not functioning properly?

    Most sufferers speak of symptoms of one or more of these complaints that have occurred for years: constipation, coated tongue, bad breath, shallow complexion, dark circles under the eyes, abnormal body odour, cold hands and feet, unstable blood pressure (up or down), brittle nails and hair, sagging posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, menstrual problems, swelling of legs, asthma, backache, and loss of memory or concentration.

    Is the procedure painful?

    Rarely. Sometimes during the procedure the muscles of the colon will contract suddenly, expelling considerable liquid and waste into the rectum and out the tubing. This contraction may feel like cramping or gas with pressure in the rectum. Most of the process is mild and gentle with a wonderful light, empty and clean feeling afterwards.

    The Benefits of Colonic Irrigation

    People may experience many of the benefits:

    • An overall feeling of wellbeing
    • Clearing the colon of hardened waste material and harmful toxins
    • Stimulation of the body’s immune system
    • Allow the free passage of nutrients into the blood steam
    • Prevention of toxic absorption
    • Provision of a favourable environment for friendly bacteria and micro-flora, aiding digestion
    • Strengthening muscular contraction of the colon (peristalsis)
    • Promotion of normal and regular bowel movement
    • Clearer and more glowing skin
    • Improved mental clarity
    • Increased energy levels
    • Relief from bloating and abdominal distension
    • Relief from constipation and IBS irritable bowel syndrome
    • Reduced frequency of toxic headaches

    Is colon therapy safe?

    It is completely safe. You will be attended by a professionally trained and skilled Colon Technician that uses the Aqua-Clinic TM Device. Sterile-disposable tubing and speculums are used with each treatment to prevent any contamination. The water pressure and temperature can be controlled for a healthy bowel movement and also to ensure that the client is at ease at all times.

    If the lungs, liver, kidneys are also eliminative organs, why is Colon Hydrotherapy important?

    Colon hydrotherapy works to soothe and tone the colon, helping it to eliminate more efficiently. The function as a whole helps reduce the burden on other organs and the lymphatic system – our main line of defense against harmful bacteria.

    Will one colonic completely empty the colon?

    Not often. Many of us have a substantial amount of impacted faeces in our colon that consists of hardened, rubbery or wallpaper like material. Secondly, there is a learning process involved in receiving colonics. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns 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. However many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal health objectives and the advice of your therapist.

    If I use Colon Hydrotherapy regularly to cleanse my colon, will my colon stop functioning on its own?

    Our goal is to assist you in healing your colon and leading you toward better health. An important feature of Colonics is to strengthen the colon and keep it from becoming sluggish. When the colon is sluggish and a bowel movement does not return a few days after therapy, it is an indication that a series of colonics is needed to remove the buildup of faecal material that has built up in the bowel over the years. Once the series of colonics has successfully cleansed the colon, the colon will begin to function regularly.

    Does Colon Hydrotherapy wash out intestinal flora and important nutrients?

    Colon hydrotherapy re-trains the muscle or the bowel to regain strength. After a series, most people regain the normal bowel function of one to two movements per day. A healthy bowel will have two to three bowel movements a day, depending on what you eat. Trouble is usually first recognised by an individual as constipation or diarrhoea. These danger signs along with foul-smelling stool and gas may be over looked. Golden brown use to be considered the normal colour, but now that vegetables are recommended the color reflects the vegetables. During constipation, you may observe a darkening of the stool because of the long transition time in your system.

    Is it embarrassing?

    No. Your dignity is completely maintained and we pride ourselves on making your therapy a pleasant experience. Therapy is performed in a private room. You are provided with a disposable gown and blanket that you drape over your body. FDA approved devices are used so no uncomfortable or embarrassing odor will exist during colon hydrotherapy.

    How much time is required for a Colon Hydrotherapy Session?

    Plan about an hour and a half for your first visit, each hydrotherapy session is about 30 to 45 minutes based on the individual. We prefer if you relax in our clinic and stay for sorbet and a cup of tea for a few minutes after the treatment in order to make sure you leave fully revitalised.

    What should I do before a session?

    Avoid eating gas-forming foods such as beans and cabbage the day of your colonic as well as the day before to help reduce cramping. It can be more comfortable to refrain from eating at least two hours before your scheduled appointment time. For best results, avoid fatty foods and prepare a diet of vegetables and grains.

    What kind of diet shall I follow after getting a colon hydrotherapy session?

    Following large intestinal cleansing, the body may feel weary or relaxed. This is simply your body working out and processing through its cleaning period; so, proper rest is important for your body to recuperate and rejuvenate. After receiving colon hydrotherapy, for best results follow a very basic diet as advised by your colon hydrotherapist and use the suggested intestinal flora products recommended by your therapist.
