Colon Hydrotherapy

 

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs or harsh purgatives. By gently introducing warm water into the colon via a disposable speculum, the accumulated waste is softened, loosened and re-hydrated. As a result, your body releases the waste through the natural muscular action of peristalsis.

It dilutes and helps remove toxins and parasites in the colon. Colon Hydrotherapy also helps to maintain a harmonious balance of the intestinal flora. Fills and releases are administered during a session, which will last 45 to 60 minutes.

A series of colon hydrotherapy sessions is often required to dislodge years of accumulated fecal plaque. One session removes some; the second more. The condition of your colon and your personal health goals will determine the number of sessions you will need.

We use modern, state-of-the art equipment, purified water and hygienic, disposable speculum packets. Current technology promotes a safety and sanitation. All our colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured in compliance with strict FDA and Health Canada guidelines.

What is the History of Colon Hydrotherapy?

The benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy date as far back as 1500 B.C. It was believed that thedecomposition of foods in the intestines would release toxins through the bloodstream. These toxins would cause a number of illnesses and diseases. Cleansing the colon was a widely utilized method of healing for a wide variety of ailments and diseases.

The practice was incorporated by the fathers of modern medicine, Hippocrates, Da Vinci and Galen. The Hindus, Chinese, Louis XIV, the Sun King of France have all used this healing technique.

The seven channels of elimination are made up of a group of organs and organ systems including the liver, lungs, lymphatic system, kidneys, skin, blood, and bowel (colon). Together they are responsible for getting rid of waste and toxins.

Cleansing refers to the comprehensive process by which our bodies filter and remove toxins through the body’s natural elimination systems.

Even though the human body has a “built in” cleansing and detox system, it was never meant to process the overwhelming number of toxins absorbed from living in our modern world. We are self-poisoning by reabsorbing the toxins through our bowel.

 

Why get Colon Hydrotherapy?

Your body is like a house you live in. Every function in your body, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual is dependent on the attention that you give it. The elimination of undigested or fermented food and other waste products is as important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food.

 

The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about. Most of us are not concerned with our health until it becomes poor or we feel constipated or have diarrhea or other lower gastrointestinal difficulties.

 

Colon Hydrotherapy is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of toxins, parasites, gas, and accumulated fecal plaque. It is an invaluable procedure, which addresses a wide variety of different colon conditions. Is is also an effective method to normalize the bowel and keep the colon safe from putrefaction. We nurture the colon back to a healthier state by cleansing away intestinal plaque, embedded waste products, and resident toxins.

 

Often, diseased conditions caused by the presence of these toxins can be eased when we cleanse with colon hydrotherapy. It took time to pollute our bodies to the point of disease, so it will take time to reverse the process through a series of body cleanings. Some people choose colon hydrotherapy for prevention and detoxification and other come for help with more challenging digestive issues.
