WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Colon hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy, or high enemas. All these are names for colon hydrotherapy devices which use safe, filtered, temperature-controlled water for inner cleansing. It is a gentle infusion of this water, into the colon by way of a sterile, disposable rectal tube or speculum. Water in- waste matter flushed out. 

WHAT IS THE COLON?
The colon is the last five (5) feet of the digestive tract. It is a hollow, tube-like organ made up of muscle structure that moves digested food along by a wave-like motion know as peristaltic action. The colon is the living area for a host of bacteria that produces vitamins such as K and some B's. The colon also absorbs water, nutrients, proteins and cell salts back into the blood stream.

HOW CAN CLEANING MY COLON HELP?
The colon is a reflex organ, meaning there are electrical connections to all other parts and systems of the body. When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time it breaks down and becomes toxic. The body responds by slowing down other functions. This causes constipation which affects ALL the systems of the body.

WHAT SIGNS SHOW INEFFICIENT ELIMINATION?
The most miserable people on earth are people with inefficient elimination. Some of the signs of a toxic colon are: coated tongue, fetid breath, sallow complexion, abnormal body odor, dark circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails and hair, sagging posture (pot belly),tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, chronic headaches, irritability, nervousness, nausea, depression, asthma, backaches ,menstrual problems, swelling of legs, loss of memory or concentration.

IS THE COLON THE ONLY ORGAN THAT HOLDS TOXIC WASTE?
No! Toxic waste is found throughout the body. When toxins cannot be eliminated through the colon, liver, kidneys, perspiration or lungs, the body must store them in the tissue of the body. Some favorite spots for storage are fat cells, joints, muscles, arteries, the liver and other organs.

IF THE LUNGS, LIVER, KIDNEY AND SKIN ARE ALSO ELIMINATIVE ORGANS, THEN WHY IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY IMPORTANT?
Colon hydrotherapy works to soothe and tone the colon helping it to eliminate more efficiently. The function as a whole reduces the burden on other organs and the lymphatic system which is our main line of defense against harmful bacteria.

WHAT OTHER BENEFITS MAY I EXPECT FROM COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Common effects my be: sinus drainage, a loosening of mucus in the lungs, improved range of motion, as well as skin tightening, feeling younger, posture automatically improving, abdomen softening and getting smaller, relief from headaches, less fatigue and improved bowel function. The main benefit from releasing the toxic waste is that we remove the number one source of disease in the body. The bowel works more efficiently in the elimination of waste, and nutrient absorption is improved. We are what we absorb.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE RECOMMENDED?
Doctors that have done research in this area, tend to agree that : a series of ten over eight weeks is necessary. Two the first week (one today, one tomorrow) two the second week, and one a week for the next six weeks. The reason for that is the human body is exceptionally smart. When we clean it out the body starts pulling waste out of the tissue and putting them into the blood stream. The waste heads to the liver then back to colon. Therefore, the second session on the second day, is necessary so that the digested waste is eliminated rather than reabsorbed. After the first two rounds, one a week for six weeks is recommended. This slows detoxification to a gentler more tolerable rate.
