A healthy, functioning colon
is one of the most important steps
in maintaining vibrant health.
Good health is as much a function of our elimination status as the quality of food we ingest. Consider that over 400 million dollars is spent annually on laxatives in the United States. Every year 140,000 Americans are diagnosed as having colon-rectal cancer. Of this population, 44% will die as a result of this disease.
Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. following lung cancer in men and breast cancer in women. At least two million suffer from colitis, ileitis, diverticulitis, and 100,000 Americans have a colostomy each year. Periodic cleansing of the colon can prevent stagnation and minimize the exposure of potential cancer causing agents to the colon wall.
Colon hydrotherapy has a solvent and therapeutic action on the large intestine, whereby waste material in the form of feces, gas, mucous, and infectious secretions are removed through the rectum.
The result is a cleaner, healthier colon and an improved overall health status. In addition to the relief of their symptoms, many people report an increased feeling of well being, heightened energy levels and renewed vitality.
The goals of colon hydrotherapy are fourfold:
- Create efficient elimination of waste and stored toxins
- Restore tissue and organ function
- Re-balance overall body chemistry
- Teaching of clients to be responsible for their own wellness
If you suffer from one or more of the following:
Constipation – Diarrhea – Bad Breath – Irritability - Overweight
Candida (thrush/yeast infection) – Bloating – Menstrual Problems
Backaches – Asthma – Colds – Tension – Hemorrhoids – Fatigue
Depression – Insomnia – Headaches – Skin Problems – Prostate Trouble – Hypoglycemia – Many other ailments
Colon Hydrotherapy can provide relief!
What are the benefits of colon hydrotherapy?
Some of the many benefits include the following:
- Raised function levels for the entire body
- Reverse aging – old age begins in the colon
- Live a long, happy, healthier life
- Higher energy levels and sex drive
- Improved circulation and elimination
- Greater efficiency of the cardiovascular and circulatory system
- Calming of the nervous system
- Improved complexion and hair
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. This is a restorative, painless procedure which is both relaxing and effective. The individual lies comfortably on a custom treatment table and the therapist gently inserts a small speculum into the rectum. Water is allowed to flow, under gentle, pressure, into the colon in order to cleanse the colon of toxic waste. The colon is filled with water and emptied repeatedly, thereby promoting proper peristaltic action. Alternating the water temperature from warm to cool serves to increase the cleansing action and strengthens the muscular walls, which high salts and acids have weakened.
Colon hydrotherapy cleanses the entire colon without stressing the individual. This method provides a closed system in which waste material is eliminated through the instrument and out the drain line, avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual. Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The enema cleansing activity is limited to the area of the rectum and to shorter periods of time due to the body’s natural wish to expel any material in the rectum. Colon hydrotherapy extends beyond the rectum to cleanse the entire large intestine and offer greater cleansing and therapeutic benefits. Enemas or laxatives may precipitate dehydration, but colon hydrotherapy may improve the hydration status of the individual.
The instrument offers a minimal starting water pressure of 1/4 psi (pounds per square inch) and treatment is preformed effectively below the 2 psi setting. The instrument affords thorough cleansing and disinfection following each treatment. There is a built-in check valve which prevents waste water from returning to the water supply. The instrument also features a disposable unit which eliminates any possible contamination to the patient from a previous treatment.
Why Is Colon Hydrotherapy Essential to Health?
In today’s society refined foods which we eat lack the bulk and fiber to create the cleansing and peristaltic motion which facilitates the movement of the food through the colon. High salt, refined flour, meat, cooked foods, hardened fats, high sugar, and the lack of pure water all contribute to constipation and bowel disorders.
When these types of foods are ingested it causes the residue or plaque to be attracted to the walls of the intestine by ionization and thus cover the villi, which are the minute intestinal projections that pick up nourishment from the food we eat. When these are covered over the plaque becomes putrid and releases toxic, foul poisons. These poisons will travel to every part of the body such as the heart, the brain, and the kidneys and the liver and age these organs prematurely. There is no part of a person’s body which cannot be affected by a toxic colon. The poisons from a backed up colon will eventually seep into every single cell in the body and cause health problems and disease. A toxic colon may be the greatest overlooked cause of disease in the country.
Colon hydrotherapy helps to eliminate the poisons of purification from the large intestine and allows the healthy bacteria to flourish once again. Nutrition that is ingested will be absorbed more effectively because of the cleansed intestinal walls. The colon contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body. These bacteria provide important functions such as the synthesis of folic acid, vitamin B and vitamin K from foods.
Bacillus coli and acidophilus comprise the majority of the healthy bacteria in the colon along with other disease producing bacteria in small numbers. Waste material allowed to stagnate alters the proportion of the healthy bacteria to disease producing bacteria, and the potential for disease exists. These bacteria decompose proteins and carbohydrates resulting in the production of toxins. Some of these toxins are absorbed and can be a potential source of disease elsewhere in the body. The purpose of the colon as an eliminative organ is to remove this waste material by mass muscular contraction called peristalsis.
Colon hydro-therapy provides therapeutic improvement of muscular tone, facilitating peristalsis and benefiting the atonic (sluggish) colon. The effects of a stagnant colon can be manifested in constipation, halitosis (bad breath), skin blemishes, wrinkles and premature aging, headaches, low back pain, and lack of energy and sex drive.
How the Colon Works
The Colon (large intestine) is a muscular tube approximately 5-6 feet in length and has an average diameter of 2.5 inches. The small intestine empties the contents of digestion (chyme) into the cecum or first portion of the colon. The colon starts on the lower right side of the abdomen with the cecum and outlines the borders of the abdomen.
The ascending colon extends from the cecum to the liver where it bends sharply to the left and crosses the abdomen as the transverse colon. At the level of the spleen the descending colon continues down the left of the abdomen to the pelvis where it becomes the sigmoid region. The sigmoid colon empties into the rectum where waste material is eliminated through the anus. The contents of digestion (chyme) are removed along by mass muscular movements (peristalsis) which is initiated by the nerve supply to the colon.
The main functions of the colon are absorption of water and minerals, and the formation and elimination of feces. The process of digestion from ingestion of food to defecation normally takes between twelve and twenty-four hours. Constipation is defined as an undue or habitual delay in the evacuation of the bowels. Many factors can contribute to this condition including; diet, emotional stress, organic and functional diseases. Colon therapy promotes drainage through the rectum and enhances the removal of toxins from the various eliminative organs of the body. A cleansing program may lead to the eventual restoration of regular bowel function.
Recommended Treatment Schedule
Years of improper nutrition cannot possibly be reversed in a few treatments, so an initial series between three to six treatments is recommended. More treatments may be required in cases of chronic constipation of the atonic (sluggish) colon. Following the initial program, it is advisable to have a series of three treatments every 3 months to maintain optimal health.
