Colon Hydrotherapy (also known as Colonic Irrigation) is a safe and effective method of cleansing your colon of accumulated wastes and toxins without using drugs or harsh chemical laxatives.
Toxins, released by the breakdown of fecal matter, accumulate in the colon and can impair normal movement of the colon walls (peristalsis). Colon cleansing can assist by using warm water to gently cleanse the colon and promote healthy bowel function
What are the benefits?
Healthy bowel function
Increased energy levels
Increased nutrient absorption
Improved organ health
Thoroughly cleansing your colon helps your other organs of elimination (skin, lungs, liver and kidneys) to operate more effectively, detoxifying cells throughout your whole body. The resulting improvements in nutrient absorption together with the accompanying boost to your immune system will increase your overall sense of well being.
Repeated colonic treatments can also help you to re-establish normal regular bowel function by restoring muscle tone and encouraging normal peristalsis. Chronic constipation sufferers have found this therapy particularly helpful.
Why may I need Colonic Irrigation?
Some symptoms which can be addressed through Colonic Hydrotherapy include:
Irritable bowel syndrome
Aches & Pains
Family history of colon cancer
Many of our clients simply incorporate regular colonic irrigation treatments into their health regime.
How does Colonic Irrigation work?
Filtered warm water is slowly infused into your colon via a disposable speculum.
Gentle abdominal massage assists the water to soften and dislodge hardened, dry fecal residue, gas, mucus and toxic wastes which have accumulated in bowel pockets. The colon's natural peristaltic action then moves the loosened material and water out of your body through the attached waste tube, through the Hydrosan machine and into the sewerage drain.
The entire process is comfortable, hygienic, odour -free, in fact most people find it quite soothing and relaxing. This gentle filling and emptying of your colon is repeated several times during a session lasting around 40 minutes. The client is fully covered at all times preserving client modesty and dignity. Your therapist remains with you at all times during the process.
What is my Colon?
The colon (or large intestine) is a tubular organ approximately 5" - 6 feet in length and 2" to 3 inches in diameter.
Although most absorption occurs in the small intestine, the ascending colon also absorbs some minerals, nutrients and excess water from the digested residue of the food we have eaten. The contents of digestion (chyme) are moved along by mass muscular movements (peristalsis), which are initiated by the nerve supply to the colon.
Toxins and waste materials are then discharged through the anus. The process of digestion and elimination normally takes between twelve and twenty-four hours. When the colon is healthy, we experience a feeling of well-being because we are assimilating and eliminating properly
How do I know if Colonic Irrigation will be beneficial for me?
Today's diets consist in great part of refined, processed foods high in saturated fats and low in fibre. Eating these types of foods, overeating, ignoring the call to eliminate, stress, allergies, and medications can contribute to poor colon health. The colon contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body.
Waste material allowed to stagnate alters the proportion of friendly bacteria to unfriendly bacteria, disrupting the balance of microorganisms essential to the health of the colon and the body in general. Symptoms such as constipation, diarrhoea, gas and bloating, or gastrointestinal pain may alert you to colon distress. In such cases, it may be necessary to consult a doctor.
Colon Hydrotherapy can help minimize the effects of both dietary and environmental stresses and toxins that bombard us on a regular basis which can lead to immune system imbalances. That portion of the immune system residing in the intestine has an opportunity to rejuvenate once toxic waste materials are removed.
How many session of Colonic Hydrotherapy should I receive?
The decision is entirely up to you. But the following is suggested:
The International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (I-ACT) suggests the following protocol for those new to colonic irrigation:
First week - two sessions
Second week- two sessions and
Third to through tenth week - one session per week.
We generally advise beginning with one session each week for four weeks depending on the availability of appointments. Depending on your response to the first session, we can help you to determine the most appropriate number of sessions suitable for your unique requirements. It is advisable to have, at least a minimum of 2 treatments, if possible.
We also may suggest other options to facilitate detoxification based on our experience. Colon Hydrotherapy when supported by a diet of primarily non mucous-producing foods, water, appropriate exercise and stress management accelerates the healing potential of your body. It is also an excellent therapy to complement other modalities such as acupuncture, massage and nutrition.
As a preventative measure, you may benefit from a Colon Hydrotherapy session at the time of a seasonal or cycle change when diet and activity levels shift.
What equipment does Hydro Health use?
Our Hydrosan equipment is designed by Specialty Health Products, Arizona, USA - with safety and hygiene as primary prerequisites.
Hydrosan equipment is registered with the US FDA and uses sterilized single-use disposable packs consisting of a speculum together with water and waste lines to eliminate any possibility of contamination.
Additionally, our state-of-the-art units are sterilized after each session with a Wavicide solution. This wall instrument has a built-in double check valve along with an external anti-siphoning device providing a completely closed system to avoid offensive odors and leakage.
What are the potential benefits of Colonic Hydrotherapy?
Unlike enemas where water is held in the lower section of the colon while the walls are distended, a Colonic Hydrotherapy series, cleanses the whole large intestine while releasing mucus, gas and fecal impaction.
Colonic Hydrotherapy improves hydration and enhances nutrient absorption. Furthermore, your general well being is enhanced as the colon muscles are toned and peristalsis is stimulated. As you release toxins from your body through Colon Hydrotherapy it reduces stress and helps to create emotional balance.
Colonic Hydrotherapy is also used effectively by some of our clients prior to and after intestinal diagnostic procedures (i.e. barium enemas, sigmoidoscope, colonoscopy) and also in preparation for major surgery.
