Why Colon Hydrotherapy?
The use of water introduced into the bowels has been documented for thousands of years, since 1500 B.C., as a way of ridding the body of waste and therefore disease. At the turn of the 20th century Harvey Kellogg made colon hydrotherapy a popular healing method which continued into the 1950’s. That is when pharmaceutical laxatives took over the hospitals and healing rooms of America. Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colonics or Colon Therapy, is making a resurgence in our country now as more and more people are taking charge of their health naturally.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a method of using water to sluice, soak and clean the entire colon of hardened mucus, feces and bacteria. The client lies comfortably on their back and the waste is expelled naturally through a closed tube so no embarrassing odor or wetness is present. A blanket insures warmth and modesty. Water pressure is low and flow is “released” before cramping is experienced. The ebb and flow of water in the colon continues for 30 – 40 minutes in one session. There is no “addiction” to Colon Hydrotherapy as it strengthens the bowel muscle and retrains it into performing natural peristalsis. (Unlike laxatives which shut down peristalsis over time.)When waste matter from our standard American diet is not properly released, toxins are created in the bowel and reabsorbed into the bloodstream. This is known as “autointoxication”.
A cleansing diet and colon hydrotherapy have the following benefits on the bowel:
~ Improved bowel muscle tone and stronger perastalsis.
~ Reduced stagnation and toxic reabsorption.
~ Water absorption and re-hydration of all the tissues.
