Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, clean and relaxing method of removing toxins and waste from the colon or large intestine through the gentle infusion of water.
The colon is a repository of all the accumulated waste in the body. Research has shown that an unhealthy colon is the cause of some of today’s most serious health conditions, including cancer, heart disease and obesity. An unhealthy person can be carrying around a few kilos of impacted toxic waste material which becomes a breeding ground for pathogens such as parasites and fungi, resulting in the rest of the body receiving a dirty blood supply. No organ or cell in the body can function optimally without a fresh supply of clean oxygenated blood-disease and dysfunction are the ultimate outcome.
No chemicals or drugs are involved in the process and your privacy and dignity are maintained at all times. Few people know that a healthy colon conserves water in the body and synthesizes valuable nutrients such as the B and K vitamins.
Lack of physical exercise combined with the over- consumption of the typical western diet consisting of high-fat, low-fiber, refined foods such as white flour products, excessive meat, saturated fats found in animal products, sugar, alcohol, preservatives and agricultural toxins all produce toxic wastes and mucus in the body which, unless eliminated efficiently, end up impacted inside the bowel wall. You can imagine how ‘toxic’ this would make you feel and how this contributes to various symptoms such as bad breath, headaches, muscle or joint pains, bloating, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and lethargy.
Some people have a sense of fear around colon hydrotherapy but after your first session you’ll realise that it’s a simple, painless procedure that can actually be quite pleasant and often brings instant relief to many digestive disorders. There is a tube which has to be inserted at the start of the treatment but the tube is even thinner than a pencil which you insert yourself in complete privacy.
A Colonic Hydrotherapy Session Explained
“The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption”
Dr N.W. Walker, D.Sc, Ph.D
Dr Norman Walker was an advocate of raw juice therapy, raw foods, distilled water and colonic hydrotherapy. He believed that a series of 6 colonics twice per year helps nature keep your body healthy and disease free.
How does colon hydrotherapy work?
A gentle flow of warm, purified water is instilled into the colon via a pencil-thin sterile disposable rectal tube which you self-position in total privacy. The gentle flow of water softens and loosens the content of the colon stimulating peristalsis, and the waste is eliminated easily, comfortably and hygienically. The tube stays in place for the duration of the process and there is no contact with any of the expelled wastes.
The treatment lasts approximately 45 mins during which time about 25 litres of filtered water is introduced intermittently into the colon hydrating the bowel whilst loosening faecal plaque and impacted waste matter. The warm water softens and loosens the contents of the colon, aiding in elimination of toxins, bacteria, parasites, worms, candida, gas, undigested food material and mucous.
There is no mess or odour and you are comfortably lying on your back and covered throughout the session, ensuring your dignity and privacy is maintained at all times. We use soft lighting, music and aromatherapy essential oils to help you relax and make your treatment more nurturing and enjoyable.
Our experienced therapists are on hand to maintain the correct water flow and temperature at all times and are able to give you a relaxing abdominal massage and/or a heated wheat pack to place on your tummy to aid with elimination of wastes and support you throughout the process if you require it.
We use the ‘Libbe’ or ‘open system’ which offers you the option of being left in total privacy if you prefer to control the procedure yourself, which you can stop at any time if you feel the need.
Every cell and tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream which provides it with fresh blood and oxygen to function optimally. When the bowel is dirty, the blood will also be dirty so invariably the bowel needs to be cleansed before healing can take place.
“If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal tract is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing. I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health”
Dr Joseph Rodrigo M.D.
