How Clean Is Your Colon?

Posted on April 5, 2011

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Formerly referred to as a colonic, colon hydrotherapy is the process of introducing sterile, temperature controlled water into the colon through the rectum to clean out stored waste.  Advocates believe that disease starts in the colon and it requires periodic cleansing.  When waste is not properly excreted the toxins get absorbed back into the body and overwhelm the immune system.  The strength of our immune system is tantamount to our overall health and well being. It is our immune system that fights off everything from the common cold to cancer. Otherwise healthy people with sluggish digestive systems whom have been unable to find relief through diet, use of probiotics and exercise can benefit from this process.  Ideally people should be eliminating 2-3 times a day.  Are you?

What to expect

While the client lies on their side a tube is introduced into the rectum. Water is then slowly introduced into the colon. After a few minutes, the client is repositioned onto their back and the abdomen is gently massaged to help loosen the waste material from the colon wall. The colon then eliminates the waste through strong peristaltic contractions and releases the waste into the tube.  A series of sessions is generally recommended to remove years of waste, mucus and gasses from the colon.  Though each person will respond differently, the number of sessions generally depends on the amount of time the condition has been present.

Why aren’t our bodies eliminating the waste naturally?

Our bodies in the perfect state of health with low stress and an ideal diet will do this naturally.  However, in today’s modern world filled with stress, caffeine and stimulants, processed foods, antibiotics and other medications, our systems often stop working as effectively.  Once a good diet and proper nutrition is re-introduced including probiotics and/or fermented foods the system can sometimes self regulate.  However, many people are unable to shed the years of waste through this alone.  If the colon is blocked by waste material and mucus there is no way for the probiotics (bacteria) to attach to the colon walls.   

Benefits of the Friendly Bacteria in the Colon:

  • Control Candida (yeast)
  • Help white blood cells fight disease
  • Provide important nutrients for building the blood
  • Assist digestion
  • Prevent diarrhea and constipation
  • Contribute to bowel elimination
  • Manufacture B & K vitamins
  • The most abundant source of Vitamin B-12
