What is Colonics/Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colonics is a gentle infusion of water in and out of the colon, reaching all four to five feet, allowing internal cleansing and removal of waste.  Colonics involve a gentle infusion of warm water into the rectum, using no chemicals or drugs.  The procedure includes the gentle self-insertion of a small rectal tube into the anus.  The individual lies on his back, and water is gently infused into and out of the intestine without any assistance on the part of the client.  The out flowing water removes excess flatus (gas), mucus, infectious material and feces.  The temperature, water pressure and flow can be continually monitored throughout the session by the therapist.  The session can be performed without any discomfort on the part of the client. We use a closed system in which flatus (gas) and waste material are evacuated through the hose attached to the instrument and eliminated via the drain line into the sewage. Each session lasts for about an hour. We provide shorts and a top for our clients so dignity of the individual is preserved and they are completely covered.

Generally, first time clients are afraid of two things: inserting a speculum in their anus and to make a mess on the table. To help you ease your fear, you need to know your anus is as wide as your mouth wide open. Once you pass through the sphincter -the only tight muscle, it slides right in and it does not hurt. You just feel it's in there but there is no pain. The waste goes through the waste hose and into the sewage. There is no offensive odor or health risk to those in contact with sick patients as with enemas and bedpans and the dignity of the client is maintained. The speculum kits are one time use and disposable. Up to twenty-five gallons of water can be used during a colonics session, gently entering and exiting the colon as needed.  Additional waste can be eliminated by massaging the abdomen gently, addressing different points and meridians and with proper breathing techniques. Colon hydrotherapy is referred to as Colon Irrigation, Colonics, Colon therapy or High Enema.  Regardless of the name, they all refer to the use of water for internal cleansing of the colon (large intestines), without the use of drugs or chemicals.

What Exactly do Colonics Accomplish?

Colonics help release the old, encrusted colon waste, encourage discharge of toxins and parasites, freshens the gastrointestinal tract and make the whole cleansing process easier and more thorough. The therapeutic effects are improved muscle tone, which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients, while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material.  Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but an important adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the patient.

Some of the positive results people often experience include a profound cleanness and lightness, renewed energy & mental alertness.  Others feel less toxic and bloated and not as hungry.  Occasionally, some people experience an emotional release as they “let go” old matter.  This sort of release, when it occurs, is almost always followed by a strong sense of well-being.

How Does a Person Know if They Need Colonics?

You drive on a freeway...? You need a colonic. Everyone can benefit from some internal cleansing.  Our modern lifestyle has taken its toll on our digestive and elimination organs. Everyday our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants in the air we breath, the water we drink and especially the food we eat.  Refined, processed, low fiber foods, animal fats, a lack of exercise and ever increasing levels of stress all contribute to our current gastrointestinal health crisis.

When you don't eliminate properly, which is 3 or 4 bowel movements a day, toxins will remain in your body and create harmful chemicals that will poison your blood. This will lead to inflammation and the necessary pre-conditions for disease.


How Long Does It Take to Receive a Colonic?

Sessions vary accordingly to individual needs and responses, but usually last for one hour. The first visit may be longer. It is very beneficial to have a series of colonics.

How Are Colonics Different from Enemas?

Enemas clean out the lower part of the rectum and colon, but miss about four feet of the colon.  Enemas are self-administered in the comfort and privacy of one’s home. Enema bags can be purchased at some drugstores.  There is a big difference in water pressure between enema and colonic. Enema is 2 psi (pounds per square inch) and colonic is only 1/4 psi and is more gentle on the colon.

Colon hydrotherapy session is designed to cleanse the entire length of the colon from rectum to the cecum. A trained professional always administers Colon Hydrotherapy.

The colon therapist controls infusion of warm water flow and expulsion into and out of the bowel, while the client lies relaxed on a table next to the colonic equipment, using no chemicals or drugs.

Both enemas and colonics are useful tool for internal cleansing.  Both involve the use of purified water to irrigate and flush out toxins from the bowel… However, Colon Hydrotherapy is much more gentle and effective way to clean the bowel.

Is Colonics Safe/Sanitary?

Today, with modern technological advancements in colon hydrotherapy instrumentation, colon hydrotherapy has become a safe, valuable modality in preventing disease.  There are instruments, which feature a built-in check valve, which prevents wastewater from returning to the water source.

The instruments also feature a disposable unit, which consists of a speculum, obturator, water and waste line, eliminating any possible contamination of the client from a previous session.

How Often is Colon Hydrotherapy Necessary?

Since colonics are a process of removing impaction of mucus and encrustation built upon the colon wall layer by layer over many years, reversing the situation may take a series of colonics.  During the first session the client may expel considerable amount of gas and recently digested food and water before dislodging the old encrusted toxic matter.

Most clients begin feeling better and removing large amounts of waste matter after the third treatment.  It is recommended that a series of 6 to 10 colonics over a period of weeks for the first time client. Then, depending on the individual, a colonic every 1 to 3 months is recommended.

Will the Colonic Damage the Normal Intestinal Flora?

One of the functions of the first part of the colon (cecum) is to gather the intestinal flora needed for the colon.  When the accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to fecal incrustation, it is impossible for the colon to function normally and the glands in the lining cannot produce the necessary intestinal flora.  The resulting lack of lubrication intensifies a state of constipation and generate toxemia. When the acid-alkaline balance becomes abnormal and the bowel is impacted, the friendly bacteria that is necessary for proper digestion has difficulty surviving when the colon is encrusted



with putrefied water. Cleansing the colon will help bring the acid-alkaline ratio back into balance.  In this environment, the friendly bacteria will again thrive and disease-causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop.  The body is constantly manufacturing healthy bacteria flora. Research has determined there are more than 60 different species of bacteria that reside in the colon. Of these bacteria, more than 20 are formed in the stool of flesh eaters, all of which produce very highly toxic products.  We often find it helpful to reintroduce the flora to assist the body in the process.

What About Intestinal Worms or Parasites?

Many intestinal parasites are regularly removed during colonics. With the clear-lighted observation tube of the colonic instrument, it is possible to see an amazing array of worms of all shapes and sizes come out of the colon.  These parasites and worms hide behind heavy impacted putrefaction, feeding, thriving and multiplying on morbid materials.  If you eat meat, especially pork, sushi, raw or rare bloody meat, junk foods, take antibiotics or suffer from long time constipation, the chances are very good that you are loaded with parasites.



You can also get parasites from food handlers, shaking hands with an infected person, playing with your pet, or sexual activity.  Parasites thrive on junk foods and lots of carbohydrates.  95% of people have worms and parasites!

 Will Laxatives Accomplish the Same Results?

No. Laxatives are considered to be an irritant and stimulant to the colon.  They draw water from the body and produce a thin watery substance that clears only the most recently digested waste from the colon and leaves behind the impacted waste on the colon walls.  Laxatives are extremely toxic and addictive!

Is Colonics Embarrassing?

No. The procedure is done with modesty for both client and therapist. We’ll provide you with shorts and a t-shirt. The finest professional equipment is used, facilitating total sanitation and efficiency.  All you feel is a gentle and thorough cleansing in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

What Prior Preparation Is Necessary?

It is recommended that the meal prior to a Colonic be light.
