This alternative procedure involves the introduction of warm purified water into the colon, using sanitary, disposable speculums, and a gravity-fed water system. Average session lasts 30-45 minutes.Our colonic system is a closed system, for best results it is recommended to take an all natural stool softener the night before the procedure.

The colon is a tube approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. A healthy colon has uniform size and tone and extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up and across the abdominal cavity and down the left side of the body until it reaches the sigmoid and rectum. The main functions of the colon are.
1) The final digestion of our food.
2) The elimination of the digestive residue of food we have eaten.
3) The discharge of toxins and wastes from our body.
We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up and pollute the inner environment. This is called autointoxication. All of the body’s tissues are, affected by autointoxication.
While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced throughout history that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and rejuvenated the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colonic irrigation has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
The colon is the last portion of the human digestive tract. Waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time, poses problems of toxicity and impairs the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and vitamins. During colon cleansing, toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Debris built up over a long period of time is gently removed in a series of colon irrigations. When impacted material is removed, your colon begins to function like it was meant to. The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves the toxicity and peristalsis (muscular contractions) of the colon muscle, enabling it to move fecal material in a more timely fashion.
Colon Hydrotherapy reshapes the colon muscle. When problems exist in the colon, they tend to alter the shape of the colon, which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, accompanied by specialized massage techniques, helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic, constrictions thus enabling the colon to return to its natural state. The process of colonic irrigation is excellent for cleansing and healing the colon so that changes in diet, exercise and attitude are then able to produce their effects. Many people find the relief provided by colonics stimulates the motivation and enthusiasm to institute positive life-style changes. Colon Hydrotherapy cannot solve all health problems, but is a very important adjunctive therapy in the overall quest for vibrant health.
Constipation is one of the first signs that our bowel is not functioning properly. When a person is constipated, the walls of the colon are often encrusted with accumulated fecal material. The inner diameter of the colon is reduced, making it more difficult to pass wastes. Since the encrusted feces line the colon wall, the colon is unable to absorb nutrients from our food. Wastes from the blood stream that would normally be drawn into the colon through the colon wall are reabsorbed by the body along with other toxins resulting from the fermentation and putrefaction of incompletely digested food. Subsequent intestinal stasis often follows when the muscular contractions (peristalsis) can no longer sweep the hardened feces along the digestive canal. You may have several bowel movements a day, and still be constipated. The movements will be smaller and more frequent, because the inner diameter of the colon has been reduced. The body reacts by increasing the frequency of the peristalsis wave action to eliminate waste from the body. Taken to the extreme, the effects can be diarrhea, where the body moves the waste so rapidly that the bowel does not have the time to remove water and condense the waste of a normal stool.
The number of treatment will always vary with the individual and his or her condition. Often the waste is so hard and well lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this accumulated fecal material. Some people may not have startling results for the first few treatments. This is why a series of treatments is necessary and advisable. Colonic irrigation is most effective when employed in combination with exercise and proper diet of non-mucous producing foods. Fresh fruits, vegetables and certain herbs are suggested to help loosen and dissolve accumulated fecal matter. The suggested series would be two colonics per week for six (6) weeks. Once the colon Is clean it is advisable to have a colonic every four to six weeks to maintain the environment.
A colon irrigation using the Gravitational Method is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas and accumulated fecal matter. Unlike an enema, it does not involve the retention of water. There is no discomfort, no internal pressure, just a steady flow In and out of the colon. At the same time, an abdominal massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover its natural shape, tone and peristaltic wave action.
A person receiving a colonic lies on a table below the temperature-controlled input tank. A sterilized disposable instrument is gently inserted in the, rectum. Water flow, which is always under the direct control of the licenses therapist, flows into the colon via a small water tube and out through the evacuation tube carrying with it impacted feces and mucus. As the water flows out of the colon, the therapist gently massages the abdomen to help the colon release its contents. It is sometimes possible to see this expelled waste matter when it passes through a special viewing window in the evacuation tube. The person is well covered and their modesty is given top priority during the procedure. The colonic process takes only 30 to 45 minutes.
Colonics offer relief from a variety of disturbances by cleansing the colon of impacted and putrid fecal matter. Fatigue, gas, headaches, irritability skin problems, cold hands and feet, lethargy are among the problems people have found relieved by colon cleansing. Constipation, of course, is another as well as chronic diarrhea. Your sense of well being is often dramatically improved with colon Irrigations. You feel lighter more energetic, the body can again assimilate food in the colon and better defend itself against disease. Natural peristalsis, tone and regularity are restored and many serious diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique. Colonics are a key factor in the restoration of the body’s natural balance or what we call good health.
There are many contributing factors to autointoxication from a toxic bowel. Improper diet, insufficient exercise, stress, overeating and ignoring the “call of nature” can all lead to bowel problems.
Most of us, for instance, have had years of poor to average nutritional food. Much of our food is subjected to processing which includes refining, frying and over cooking, saturating the mineral elements of our food with oil or grease. As a result of this food altering, the digestive organs cannot process the minerals efficiently and they are passed out of the small intestine into the colon as wastes. The consumption of mucous producing foods such as meat, dairy products, and flour, cause dense sticky bowel movements. Excess mucous in our system is a sign of trouble. Mucous stools are difficult for the body to eliminate. When they are expelled, they leave behind a glue-like coating on the walls of the colon which accumulates layer by layer into a hard rubbery crust. The body cannot eliminate these layers of hardened mucous on its own. They are often carried for the duration of the person’s life as toxic burden.
Incompletely digested food ferments and putrefies when remaining in the colon longer than a day. When this fermented waste combines with the body’s own bile acids from the liver, carcinogens can ultimately develop into colon or rectal cancers. Enhancing the colon’s ability to expedite the elimination of waste reduces the risks of developing colon-rectal cancers
There are none. It is not uncommon however, for some people to start to feel like they have a cold or headache after a colonic. Toxins which have been lying dormant in the colon are now being flushing out and a small amount may be reabsorbed into the body's system. his healing crisis passes quickly and the person will realize a feeling of well-being with future treatments.

The desire for good health is something we all share. We spend countless thousands of dollars treating the symptoms of disease and a portion of our income to health insurance to cover our expenses for cancer, heart disease, etc in the event our bodies should succumb to these diseases. Yet very little is invested in the prevention of disease which costs far less than the treatment One example of this is cancer of the colon. We don’t hear much about it, yet it is second only to heart disease as the most common cause of death in the United States.
While few would argue the importance our diet plays in our health, the removal of toxic waste from our bodies is important too. You see, good health is as much a function of how well we eliminate wastes from our bodies as how well we eat.
