    Colon Hydrotherapy

    The colon, along with your skin, liver, kidneys and lungs, is a major organ for eliminating bodily waste. Your doctor, naturopath, homeopath or dietician may recommend colon hydrotherapy as part of your wellness program to cleanse and detoxify your colon, liver, kidney and lymphatic systems. This is usually the case if you have been seeing a dietician and using a weight loss program e.g. Wesley Hospital program.

    Colon Hydrotherapy is best used in combination with an adequate nutrition and fluid intake as well as exercise.

    Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe effective method of removing waste, parasites and gas from the large intestine (colon) without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through normal peristalsis. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.

    SBW uses a closed system. A closed system is described as one that allows filterd & temperature regulated water to enter the colon through a disposable plastic tube and waste material to exit through a larger tube. From there it flows through an observation tube and into the drainage system. The water temperature and pressure are controlled by a therapist guided by gauges on the instrument. The regulation of the temperature and pressure can be customised to the patient's comfort (minimum presssure is used). There is no open evacuation and no offensive odors. You are fully draped & your dignity is respected at all times.

    Constipation

    The Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand, the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons and the Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses all agree with the following definition of constipation; the normal bowel action varies between 3 times a day to 3 times a week. However, if your stool is more hard and firm and is difficult to pass then you are constipated!

    Colon Hydrotherapy helps to hydrate the large bowel and assists in the passage of waste.

    Dr Detox Foot Bath

    In a healthy person, our body should have 80% negative electricity (usually known as negative ions) and 20% positive electricity (positive ions). Our diet balance (e.g. too acidic, ingested chemicals from water and food) or our surroundings (environmental pollution, work environment e.g. surrounded by computers, electrical equipment etc), can affect the balance of negative and positive ions in our body and hence the amount of toxins in our body.

    Cigarettes, alcohol, processed foods and caffeine are also keen sources of toxins and the most common method of eliminating them from the body involves dieting, exercise and evaluating lifestyle choices.

    How does it work?

    It is now widely accepted that there are meridian flow lines that carry electrical impulses throughout the body, and that when they are exposed to certain stimuli, including a mild electrical charge, there can be a rebalancing effect that causes organs and glandular systems to operate more effectively.

    The Ion Cleanse from Dr Detox is a system that generates and emits a stream of positive and negative Ions, and through the processes of Electrolysis and Osmosis, supports the body’s natural equilibrium.

    During an Ion Cleanse treatment the Dr Detox unit delivers a small amount of low level, electrical current into the array (electrode), which results in a reaction between the array, the water and the Himalayan salt (added to help conductivity and increase the ionization effect), to generate positively and negatively charged ions. When your feet are placed in the water the interaction of the positive and negative ions re-energises, revitalises and supports your body’s innate ability to rebalance and achieve a higher state of well being.

    The largest and most numerous sweat glands are located in the soles of the feet, and because toxins carry either a positive or negative charge, many end up in the foot bath basin, attracted there by the ions present in the footbath water.
