What Is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy (colonic) is a method of removing waste from the large intestine, with the use of filtered water. This is a restorative, painless procedure which is both relaxing and effective. Colon hydrotherapy method cleanses the entire colon without stressing the individual. The closed system used eliminates waste material through a drain tube into the provided sewer connection, eliminating any offensive odor.
Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. Enemas are limited to the area of the rectum. Colonics extends beyond the rectum to cleanse the entire large intestine and offer greater cleansing and therapeutic benefits.
The modern equipment used is manufactured through compliance with strict federal guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability.
The equipment is sanitized after each use, rectal tubes are disposable and facility is clinical but comfortable.
What Is A Colon Hydrotherapy Session Like?
A session is a comfortable experience for most people. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colon's natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The in flow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination.
To ensure modesty and dignity, during the session the patient is gowned and covered with a sheet.
How Many Sessions Does One Need?
The number of sessions one will need will depend on the individual. Every person's goal will differ. Just as one exercises to tone muscles this is also toning and rebuilding the inner body muscle. An initial series of three to six treatments is recommended. In the case of chronic constipation or a sluggish colon condition more treatments may be required. It is suggested to have a series of three treatments every three to six months to maintain optimal colon health. You cannot expect to reverse years of improper nutrition and abuse in a few treatments.
Periodic cleansing of the colon could prevent stagnation and minimize the exposure of potential cancer-causing agents to the colon wall Colonic done properly has a dissolving and therapeutic effect on the large intestine, whereby waste material such as feces, gas mucus and toxic compounds are removed through the anus. The result is a cleaner, healthier colon ad improved overall health status.

Historians tell us that the practice of Colon Hydrotherapy was first used by the Egyptians in the 14th century.
Dr. Harvey Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise.
How The Colon Works
The colon (large intestine) is a muscular tube approximately 5-6 ft. in length and has an average diameter of 2.5 in. The small intestine empties the contents of digestion (chyme) into the cecum or first portion of colon and travels to the rectum and out the body through the anus. The contents of digestion are moved 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-fours hours. If digestion is slowed or hindered in anyway elimination can take 2-4 or more days. If the matter is not cleared from the colon walls matter could stay in pockets or folds of the colon for years.
Twenty-two toxic poisons have been identified that could potentially be produced in the colon. They can be a cause or a contributing factor to almost any illness and be life threatening.

Good health is as much a function of our elimination status as the quality of food we ingest. Consider that over 400 million dollars are 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 the 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. Irritable bowel and Inflammatory bowel disease and is epic.
Dr. James A. Wiltsie, M.D. was quoted regarding colon hydrotherapy "As long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body."
