What is a colon hydrotherapy/colonic irrigation treatment?
Colon Hydrotherapy, traditionally known as Colonic Irrigation, gently fills the colon with warm sterile filtered water through a small sterile rectal tube. When the water is flushed out, it carries with it any material that has built up in the large intestine (colon), waste matter, toxins and trapped gases.
What water do you use for a Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment?
We use highly filtered water which passes through two separate filters before being heated to the correct temperature. This filtered water is capable of absorbing and flushing more toxins out of the colon because of its drawing effect on solid particles, chemicals and other matter.
How is Colon Hydrotherapy different from enemas?
Enemas are good for cleaning out the sigmoid colon and rectal area, which extend to about one foot. A series of colon-hydrotherapy treatments can clean out and remove impacted/compacted faecal material from the entire five feet of the large colon. Additionally, colon hydrotherapy promotes peristalsis and helps the colon muscles regain tone therefore assisting the return of regular bowel movements.
What to expect from having a Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment?
Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure per se, but a most valuable procedure used in assisting and aiding the body, towards a wide range of different colon-related conditions. Colon Hydro Therapy helps to re-tone the bowel wall and improves colon functions, with the rehydration of the entire body through Colon Hydro Therapy enables it to function more efficiently.
How do toxins accumulate in the body?
Toxins accumulate in the body as a result of stress and/or consuming too much acidic forming food, such as found in our modern-day diets. When the bowel moves towards an abnormal acidic medium, the bowel/body applies self-preservation by secreting a glyco-protein substance lining the entire intestinal wall. This is known as mucoid plaque. Mucoidal plaque makes it hard for the body to absorb vitamins and nutrients, which could and does result in chronic malnutrition.
When the bowel becomes toxic, it contaminates the blood, which in turn, spreads the toxins to the heart, lungs, brain, muscles etc as the blood delivers nutrients throughout the entire body. With the body now being intoxicated, the already over worked liver is left to filter the toxic blood, after years of uninterrupted toxic overload, the liver become sluggish until it drops below 33%, thus it will no longer function. At this point, the toxins will begin to collect in other parts of the body. Disease will manifest wherever they settle. Overall, cleansing allows you to remove accumulated mucoid plaque in order to rebuild your bowel and your liver and protect yourself from disease.
