Colon Hydrotherapy, also called colonics or high enemas, can be a safe and effective means of helping the body
detox and restore proper function of the colon using filtered and UV treated water to clear toxins, impacted fecal matter, and bacteria.
Why is colon health important?
The large intestine is responsible for eliminating waste and recycling water and other materials to nourish the colon cells and maintain proper colon health. If the colon is not functioning properly the healthy flora will be disrupted and important vitamins and butyric acid will not be produced, allowing the colon to become inflamed and lose it’s tone. These issues could lead to dysfunction such as IBS and Crohn’s Disease. If you are experiencing symptoms such as constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas and bloating, fatigue, headaches, and even food sensitivities and/or allergies, colon hydrotherapy along with a proper diet and lifestyle could help ease these symptoms and restore optimal colon function.
What happens during my treatment?
Your treatment will involve an intake evaluation and 45 minutes of table time where a series of fill and empty cycles administered by a trained colon hydrotherapist will be given to release unwanted waste material from the entire colon. The material will move through the tube attached to the speculum and into the waste system. The waste will also travel through a view tube in the colonic machine allowing the therapist to explain what you are seeing and possible adjustments that can be made to help improve colon function. Abdominal massage will be used to help move and release the waste from the colon for optimal results. We use the Aquanet-2000 closed colonic system for the utmost privacy, safety, and comfort.
How many sessions will I need?
The amount of sessions varies depending on the client with most clients benefiting from series of four to six sessions with monthly maintenance session after that. At the end of your initial treatment you will discuss the results of your session with your colon hydrotherapist and design a protocol that works best for you and your health goals.
What can I do to get the best results?
Prior to your session you should:
- Chew your food until it’s liquid
- Stay properly hydrated. Drink half your body weight in water (ounces). Avoid caffeinated, and fizzy, carbonated beverages.
- Avoid nuts, dairy, and gluten as these are hard on the digestive system.
- Refrain from eating, smoking and drinking an hour before your session unless you need a small snack to keep your blood sugar under control.
- Avoid wearing strong perfumes or colognes and highly seated oils and/or lotions to your session.
- Wear comfortable clothing and try to relax.
- Arrive 15 minutes early to fill out the intake form and necessary paperwork.
- Ask questions!
We will do our very best to ensure you understand what to expect from your session and give you suggestions to help you achieve your desired results.
