Recent European studies speculate that 80% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the client. Good bacteria can only breed in a balanced environment.
It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can better be absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one. The important bowel bacteria are present on the bowel wall and are not removed during Colonic Hydrotherapy, thus leaving a large nucleus to grow naturally.
Your Therapist will advise on the best combination of friendly bacteria probiotic strains to suit your needs after treatment.
Everything has its proper place. Many people take pain killers and then become constipated or being away from home or on holiday can upset the natural rhythm of our bowel movements. Laxatives can be useful for relieving the symptoms of temporary constipation.
Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum, (the lowest 8-12 inches of the colon) usually 1-2 pints of water are used to do that. Suppositories are also used to accomplish the same task.
Colonic Hydrotherapy has the ability to release waste from all areas of the colon. Robert Gray M.D. estimated one colonic treatment is equivalent to thirty enemas.
We suggest that you eat at your normal meal time, and consume a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn't make sense to have you car cleaned and then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after a colonic isn't an intelligent choice.
Steamed or cooked vegetables, salads, vegetable soups or broths, fruit, or juices are the best choice. Most clients choose to pre-order a cold pressed juice cleanse to enjoy after their treatment.
As soon as your treatment is completed you can carry on with your normal routine. The most frequent post-colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool.
Sometimes there may be no bowel movement for some days following a colonic. However this is quite normal and should be interpreted as such. Colonic Hydrotherapy can help you enjoy having a well functioning colon. With the right balance of diet and hydration, exercise and emotions, you can be having much healthier elimination every day.
All Colonic Hydrotherapy sessions ensure your utmost comfort and modesty as you are completely covered up during your treatment. You are under the care of a highly trained therapist with the utmost respect for confidentiality and privacy.
Is it safe? Yes. Disposable speculums are used, and all medical equipment is sterilised using hospital-approved sterilisation solutions which kill all prevalent bacteria, viruses and fungi in minutes. Countless thousands of colonics have been given safely, the water pressure is very low, so there is no danger of bowel perforations, and the water used is pre-filtered. Unlike regular use of laxatives, colonic hydrotherapy is non habit-forming, and improves colon muscle tone.
