The first step in anyone's health program should be stimulating, cleaning and toning all the elimination organs. The bowel is the best place to begin.


Restoring health through colon cleansing...

One of the unfortunate consequences of humankind’s modern lifestyle is an increase in the number of people suffering from congested bowels, colon cancer and irritable bowel syndrome. The modern diet has become so far removed from what our prehistoric ancestors ingested that our bodies are paying the price. Between refined white flour and white sugar, plus meat and dairy products, all of which contain no fibre whatsoever, our digestive systems have ended up in a weakened and diseased state.

One tool, which has proved invaluable in treating people with bowel problems, is colonic irrigations. This involves the circulation of purified water through the entire length of the colon in such a way that old faecal matter is removed from the walls of the bowel. This helps restore the tone and vigour of the colon tissue, thus alleviating constipation and other bowel problems. While the practice of colonic irrigation may seem unusual to those unfamiliar with it, I have found it to be an effective tool in dealing with the consequences of our modern lifestyle. There are many contributing factors to auto-intoxication from a toxic bowel. Improper diet, insufficient exercise, stress, overeating, and ignoring the "call of nature" can all lead to bowel problems.

Most of us have had years of poor to average nutritional food. Much of our food is subjected to processing which includes refining, frying and over cooking, saturating the mineral elements of our food with oil or grease. As a result of this food altering, the digestive organs cannot process the minerals efficiently and they are passed out of the small intestine into the colon as waste. The consumption of mucous producing foods such as meat, dairy, and processed flour, cause dense sticky bowel movements. Excess mucous in our system is a sign of trouble. Mucosic stools are difficult for the body to eliminate. When they are expelled, they leave a glue-like coating on the wall of the colon which accumulates layer by layer into a hard rubbery crust.

The body cannot eliminate these hardened layers on its own. They are often carried for the duration of the person's life as a toxic burden. The colon is a sewage system but through neglect and abuse it becomes a cesspool. When it is clean and normal we are well and happy; let it stagnate and it will distil the poison of decay, fermentation and putrefaction into the blood, poison the brain and nervous system so that we become mentally depressed and irritable; it will poison the heart so that we are weak and listless; poison the lungs so that the breath is foul; poison the digestive organs so that we become distressed and bloated and poison the blood so that the skin is sallow and unhealthy looking. In short, every organ of the body is poisoned and we age prematurely, we look and feel old, the joints are stiff painful, the eyes look dull and the brain feels sluggish - the joy of living deserts us. The colon is the largest perpetrator of disease of any organ in the body and is said to be the initiator of 80 percent of all critical illness.


The Colon

The colon is a tube approximately five feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. A healthy colon has uniform size and tone. It extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up and across the abdominal cavity and down the left side of the body until it reaches the sigmoid and rectum. It extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up and across the abdominal cavity and down the left side of the body until it reaches the sigmoid and rectum.

  • Final digestion of our food.
  • The elimination of digestive residue.
  • The discharge of toxins and wastes from our body.

We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up into our system and pollutes the inner environment. This is called auto-intoxication which literally means "self-poisoning." All the body's tissues are affected by the auto-intoxication.

Ideally, we should have at least 2 or 3 soft bowel movements per day. The long retention of faeces is believed to be a source of heart disorders, as the removal of fibre from the diet raises cholesterol levels and predisposes the body to coronary disease. It also increases the workload of other excretory organs – kidneys, skin, liver, lungs and lymph – and puts them under extra strain.

For centuries people have recognized the need for periodic cleansing in order to prevent illness. With the first sign of sickness our great grandmothers would reach for the enema bag and some herbs. But today bowel health is scarcely talked about. You don’t go to a dinner party and talk about being constipated. Unfortunately, the average mother and father are completely ignorant of bowel cleansing and its relationship to health.In 1914, 57 of the world’s leading physicians met at a health conference. One of their conclusions was that "every organ of the body is affected by reabsorbed poisons from the colon…. constantly bathing the delicate cells." Auto-intoxication is the process whereby the body poisons itself by maintaining a cesspool of decaying matter in its colon.

The toxins released by the decay process get into the bloodstream and travel to every part of the body. Every cell in the body is affected and many forms of sickness can result. Because it weakens the entire system, auto-intoxication can be a causative factor for nearly any disease.

The cause of auto-intoxication is putrefaction within the intestinal tract. Dr. Kellogg (of cereal fame) performed many autopsies during his career, and often found 5 to 15 pounds of faecal matter in the colon of the average person. It is not uncommon for an autopsy to reveal a colon 9 inches in diameter, with a passage through it no larger than a pencil, with the rest of the wall encrusted with many years of accumulated faecal matter. A healthy bowel movement is one which takes a similar length of time to accomplish as it does to urinate.The consistency of your bowel movements should be soft and unformed.


What is Colonic Irrigation / Colonic Hydrotherapy?

A colon irrigation using the Gravitational Method is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, and accumulated faecal matter. Unlike an enema, it does not involve the retention of water. There is no discomfort, no internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the colon. At the same time, an abdominal massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover its natural shape, tone, and peristaltic wave action.

Immediately following the procedure, clients feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being.

A person receiving a colonic lies on a table 18" below the temperature-controlled input tank. A sterilized speculum is gently inserted in the rectum. Water flow, which is always under the direct control of the practitioner, flows into the colon via a small water tube and out through the evacuation tube carrying with it impacted faeces and mucus. As the water flows out of the colon, the practitioner gently massages the abdomen to help the colon release its contents. It is possible to see this expelled waste matter when it passes through a special viewing window in the evacuation tube. The person is well covered and their modesty is given top priority during the procedure. This colonic process takes only 20 to 30 minutes.


Will Colonics damage normal intestinal flora?

No. One of the functions of the first half of the colon is to gather intestinal flora needed for the colon. When the accumulation of faeces in the bowel leads to faecal encrustation, it is difficult for the colon to function normally and the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora.

The resulting lack of lubrication, intensifies a state of constipation and generates toxemia. This upsets the normal acid-alkaline balance and the growth of the friendly bacteria is stunted. Cleansing the colon will help bring the acid-alkaline ratio back into balance. In this environment, the friendly bacteria will again thrive and disease causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop.


How many Colonics do I need?

Often the waste is so hard and well lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this accumulated faecal material. The number of treatments will always vary with the individual and his/her condition. Some people may not have startling results for the first few treatments. This is why a series is necessary and advisable.

Colonic Irrigation is most effective when employed in combination with exercise and proper diet of non-mucous producing foods. Fresh fruits, vegetables and certain herbs are suggested to help loosen as dissolve accumulated faecal matter. Adequate water intake is also advised. The suggested series would be two colonics per week for four weeks. Once the colon is clean, it is advisable to have a colonic before, during and after a "fast" to hasten the removal of toxic waste and it would also be beneficial during "flu season" to help boost the immune system. Once the colon is clean, it is advisable to have a colonic every two to three months to maintain the environment. A good time is at the change of seasons when diet and exercise patterns often change. You should have a colonic before, during, and after a “fast” to hasten the removal of toxic waste, and it would be beneficial during the cold and flu season.

Your sense of well-being is often dramatically improved with colon irrigations. You feel lighter, more energetic. The body can again assimilate food in the colon and better defend itself against disease.

Natural peristalsis, tone and regularity are restored and many serious diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique.

Colonics are a key factor in the restoration of the body's natural balance or what we call good health.
