Good health depends as much upon how well we eliminate wastes from our bodies, as it does upon how well we eat. When the colon is congested with stagnant waste, dangerous toxins back up in our systems and wreak havoc on our tissues and organs. A colonic promotes relief from a variety of disturbances by gently cleansing the colon and opening our body’s natural detoxification pathways. We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean.
A Colon Cleanse should be a vital part of your life-long anti-aging and detoxification strategy.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. Due to the fact that the colon, or large intestine, is a storage area for waste, an unhealthy amount of waste can ‘back-up’ and wreak havoc throughout our body. It is extremely beneficial for the body to release such accumulated congestion. Colon Hydrotherapy is a therapy used to gently cleanse the inside of your colon; it is like giving your insides a bath.
On your initial visit, you will be screened by one of our doctors to clear you for the colon cleanse.
Many patients do experience relief of their bloating and constipation even after just one session. However, if the person is very constipated they may actually have an increase in bloating and abdominal discomfort as their hardened stool begins to expand and soften as it rehydrates. Often a follow-up session that week, or the following, will help release and evacuate this old hardened stool.
Many patients find that cleaning their colon and attaining normal bowel functions, coupled with a healthy diet, helps in their weight loss goals.
You may have read about Hollywood stars having weekly colonics to maintain their weight and appearance. However, outside of doing a medically-supervised detox, having too many colonics is not a good thing. For most patients, we recommend having a colonic every 3-6 months as a part of their healthy lifestyle maintenance.
For most people, a colonic irrigation session can be a pleasant experience. Through the introduction of purified, temperature, and pressure-regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. During a treatment, the inflow of a small amount of water and the subsequent release of waste is a pattern repeated several times. The cleansing effects of colon hydrotherapy should produce better colon flow and elimination.
