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.
