Colon Hydrotherapy works on the principal that disease starts in the colon, since most foods, drugs, and other chemicals that do not leave the body are stored there. At first there are a few or no symptoms, but after several years of putrefaction, sub clinical signs graduate to disease status. This is because several pounds of fecal material laden with millions of bacteria can attach itself to the colon walls. This toxic waste can generate all kinds of havoc with the system. By cleansing the large intestine, colon therapy restores the organ to its natural size, shape, and correct function, this will help tremendously with preventing disease.
How does Colon Hydrotherapy work?
During treatments, water is gently infused into the large bowel so that it is thoroughly washed. This allows old encrustations and fecal material to loosen, dislodge, and be swept away. As body pollution is eliminated, many condition are alleviated, including severe skin disorders, breathing difficulties, constipation, depression, chronic fatigue, nervousness, flatulence, bloating and arthritis. As people become physically unstuck, they become emotionally lighter, freer, and better able to express their feelings. Colonics provide a great relief, especially when accompanied by dietary changes. Those who have not been well for any reason can testify to the validity of the immediate positive effects on the entire system and sense of well being after receiving colon irrigation. When cells are nourished and wastes emptied, then cellular health and cellular reproduction are better, and so are the positive effects on anti-aging. Nourish with real food, cleanse with water, and provide the other co-factors of creation such as clean air and adequate sunlight and we can experience the vital life balance!
Reasons for Colon Hydrotherapy
1) Prior to endoscopic and radiological purposes
Irrigating the colon immediately before an endoscope saves the patient from having to consume saline solutions and magnesium sulfate drinks, all of which make for an uncomfortable night of sleep prior to the procedure. Research has shown most patients don’t consume the necessary amount of drinks and actually detest the preparatory solutions, not the endoscope. Procedures can be prescribed and executed within an hour with the use of colon hydrotherapy. Not only does this save for the doctor it is safer and less traumatic for the patient. Most patients find the colon hydrotherapy session liberating and enjoy a sense of well being afterwards.
2) Other medical reasons
Stress, poor diet and lack of water are at the heart of constipation and fecal impaction of the colon. Millions of people yearly suffer from back up of bowel and seek symptomatic remedy through laxatives or purgatives, which can irritate the lining of the bowel and create swings in bowel performance. Cleaning out the bowel through colon irrigation with the simplicity of clean water affords the patient relief without negative side effects. Bowel training also occurs through strengthening the muscular performance of the bowel. This provides the doctor and the clinic staff an opportunity to instruct the patient on useful lifestyle habits in stress management, nourishing and healthy bulk producing diets, as well as the use of more water in the diet.
3) Anti-Aging Purposes
More and more doctors on the forefront of anti-aging are realizing that cellular health is a function of nourishing cells with predominately alkaline-forming quality foods and assisting the cell to empty its wastes. By-products of cellular metabolism are acid compounds that MUST leave the body. Otherwise these wastes damage tissues, invite bacterial proliferation, viral distribution, and fungal growth to name just a few problems. This scenario challenges the body’s immunity and well being. Wastes are emptied into the alkaline-stable bloodstream to be carried out of the body through excretory channels. The largest repository of waste in the body in the colon. When the colon is not eliminating effectively over a period of time (due to reasons stated above, above, poor diet. lack of exercise, lack of water), the resulting recycling of microscopic waste material occurs through the colon wall through the portal vein into the liver. This unnecessarily burdens the entire body and all its organ systems, which are interconnected. Eighty per cent of the blood that goes into the liver is from the digestive tract and is venous blood. The largest concentration of lymph nodes is concentrated in the abdominal cavity surrounding the small and large intestine. Is it any wonder? This is where the largest concentration of septic (causing putrefaction) wastes is located. Removing this waste by the colon irrigation relieves this burden on the system (providing an antiseptic environment) and allows the innate intelligence of the body to harmonize quicker.
