Your body looks and feels its best when it is clean from the inside out. Colon hydrotherapy is a valuable holistic cleaning procedure used to assist the body with a variety of colon-related conditions. By removing disease-causing toxins from your body, colon hydrotherapy may ease the following conditions:
- Irritable/Sluggish bowel
- Poor digestion
- Sluggish bowel
- Skin problems
- Weight problems
Colonics are a fantastic way to tone and exercise the bowel muscles. Our western lifestyles and the buildup of these waste materials have caused our bowels to lose their muscle tone, which further hinders our ability to eliminate effectively. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon during colon hydrotherapy improves peristalsis (muscular contraction), and triggers the nerve reflexes that in turn trigger our desire to go to the toilet. It’s like a gym workout for the bowel. Colonics can help release old emotions that are often stored in the solar plexus region and our gut, and they also have the ability to start you on a very beneficial educational process about your own health and wellbeing.
If you are not self-cleansing efficiently, you are passing on the dirty job of protecting your body to... cancer cells. "Most of the contamination starts in the digestive system, and undigested food is the greatest source of poisoning the body". This is where colon hydrotherapy comes into its own. By rehydrating the system, absorbing excess heat in the cells, scavenging free radicals and eliminating poisonous products of degradation of undigested food, this unique therapy helps reduce the toxic load on the immune system. You know the rest!
What to expect?
During the session we will instruct, monitor and be available to assist you as needed. The flow of water from the gravity-fed column is controlled by the flow control switch. We use water purified by an ultra-violet ozone water purification and filtration unit before it passes through the “Libbe” rectal tube, and gently into the rectum. Safe, purified, temperature controlled water flows in. When you feel the need to release the rectal tube will move to one side inside the rectum and allow the softened faeces to flow out, down the drain in the base of the “Libbe” passing through a clear viewing tube. An odour exhaust system insures the area remains odour free.
Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes, but you need to allow approximately 60 minutes for the whole session.
During a typical colonic, approximately 30 litres of water will be transported into and out of the colon, you will experience several fills and releases of water during the procedure. This ebbing and flowing gently begins to soak and soften the faecal matter, allowing debris, gas and mucous to be eliminated. A good colonic is capable of removing the equivalent of about 10 normal bowel movements, and further treatments can remove even more substantial amounts.
Most people don’t experience any pain during a colonic, just a feeling of fullness, however a few people may experience a little discomfort especially during the first colonic, generally in the form of minor cramping. This is caused by the trapping of gas while the body is trying to eliminate waste. If you do experience any discomfort, the best way to reduce this is to just relax, deep breath and use our specialized massage tool provided to the abdomen. You will also be given an infrared crystal biomat pad to cover your abdomen during the session.
After Your Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment
Apart from the incredible health benefits you will receive from your course of colonics, you may notice each colonic treatment can be a different experience from the last.
Depending on how your body responds after your colonic, you may experience anything from a burst of energy; (this is most common) through to feeling a little light-headed or drowsy. If after a particular session you start to feel tired and/or nausea, relax as this is quite normal. Your body is processing and eliminating the toxins that are being stirred up and released. Listen to your body and if you need to rest, do so. This feeling will pass. Nausea may also be soothed by sipping ginger tea. Occasionally, you may experience mild bloating after your colonic due to the infused water gradually soaking into old material in the colon, softening it and causing it to swell a little prior to elimination.
While cleansing, you may also experience symptoms like headaches or diarrhoea from time to time. This can simply be a sign of intestinal putrefaction and toxins being released and will often clear from having a colonic. This is also a sign that more cleansing is needed so don’t stop now!
