What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy involves the gentle rinsing of the colon with warm water. This process allows vital nutrients to be absorbed more easily by removing encrusting fecal matter, gas and mucus that tends to leave our system unable to perform at its optimal level. Water is gently infused through the rectum in both an effective and relaxing manner. By removing such waste, clients report feeling rejuvenated and healthier. When the blood stream is overloaded with toxic waste, the body will function at a much lower level than is essential for the maintenance of optimal health.
What are the benefits of a colon hydrotherapy session?
The benefits of a colon hydrotherapy session include, but are not limited to, the following: increased energy, improved circulation, clearer skin & eyes, mental clarity, weight normalization, improved immune system, better digestion, and relief from bloating and heaviness. The process of detoxification is given a critical boost when the harmful bacteria that is produced by the encrusted fecal matter, gas and mucus is removed from the body through colon hydrotherapy sessions.
The colon can become a breeding ground for parasites and other microorganisms which thrive and weaken the immune system. With a clean colon, you do not only get rid of these parasites, but you clear your blood stream of possible contaminants, improving the immune system in general. Colon hydrotherapy can also assist the body with healing a variety of conditions such as: abnormal body odor, allergies, arthritis, backache, bloating, brittle nails and hair, constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas, fatigue, headaches, indigestion, insomnia, poor concentration, stiffness and unpleasant breath.
How should I prepare myself for a colon hydrotherapy session?
It is recommended that you refrain from eating at least two hours prior to your appointment. If possible, a diet of vegetables and grains 2-3 days in advance rather than heavy foods will help prepare your colon for the treatment. Try and refrain from drinking alcohol 24 hours in advance, and ensure that you are well hydrated.
What can I expect after a colonic?
Most client’s remark about how clean, light and overall good they feel following a colonic hydrotherapy session. You may feel a bit fatigued if your body is more on the toxic side. Colonics may trigger bowel movements for the next few hours, however there shouldn’t be any discomfort or uncontrollable urgency. It is possible to feel slightly light-headed following a colonic, hence the need to maintain a high level of hydration.
How many colon hydrotherapy sessions are needed?
The amount of sessions a client should expect depends greatly on their individual needs, goals and personal commitment. It is suggested that you book your initial treatment and discuss with your therapist during the consultation what their recommendations are. In our experience we have found that a course of 3 treatments over an initial 2-3 week timeframe produces the best results with regular maintenance thereafter.
