An Individualized Approach to Disease Prevention and Treatment


Colonics

Colon hydrotherapy effectively removes stagnant fecal matter from the colon walls, preventing the build up of toxins in the portal and lymphatic system, resulting in a reduced load on the liver. The treatment also removes mucus, gas, parasites, undigested food, cellular debris, it also improves the peristaltic action of the colon (muscular action of the colon to push waste through) and better absorption of nutrients from food. It is estimated that over 90% of disease can be contributed directly or indirectly to an unhealthy digestive system. It is estimated that the number of suffers of IBS is secondary only to the common cold and is the most frequent cause of time off work.

 

The Colon

The colon, bowel or large intestine is the end portion of the human digestive tract. The digestive tract is a continuous food carrying passageway extending from the mouth to the anus. The colon is approximately 5-6 feet long and 2 ½ inches in diameter, its major functions are absorption of water and minerals also formation and elimination of waste (fecal matter).

Additional Benefits of Colonics…

Cleanses the Colon: breaks down toxic excrement so it no longer harms your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Toxic built up over a long period of time is gently removed in a series of colonics, thus allowing regular bowel movements on a daily basis.


Reshapes and Exercises the Colon: build up of toxins over a period of time weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. Regular colonics improves the peristalsis (muscular contractions) also helps to eliminate  bulging pockets of fecal and narrowed passageways, spastic constrictions finally enables the colon to resume its natural state to a degree.


Stimulates Reflex points in the Colon: the colon is connected to every system and organ in the body by reflex points. Colonics stimulates these reflex points therefore affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way. Which creates and overall well-being and health throughout your body.


Hydration of the Whole body: water is absorbed into the body through the colon which increases the volume of blood. Circulation of the blood is increased, resulting in a greater bathing of the cells, which dilates the toxins and flushes them out relieving toxemia and *uremia also increasing elimination both through kidneys and skin as well as bowels. All this generally assists the cardiovascular and circulatory systems to be more efficient.

How Many Treatments will I Need?

Everyone’s digestive system functions differently, for near optimal levels, we recommend that you have an initial 4 treatments booked closely together within 1-2 weeks, followed by monthly treatments and progress to once every quarter as in integral part of your health maintenance.

If you are suffering from extreme digestive disorders we recommend an initial course of 8-12 treatments booked closely together within 3-4 weeks. The severity of your digestive issues may require a higher amount of treatments your therapist may be able to discuss with you. We also suggest monthly treatments until you progress to once every quarter for optimum health.
