The history of Colon Hydrotherapy can be traced as far back as the Ebers Papyrus, where it is recorded that a hollow reed was used to irrigate the bowel while standing against the flow of a river.
Since then Colon Hydrotherapy has evolved through various applications, from gravity fed buckets to the modern day closed system, where a low pressure fill is used to saturate and expand the colon to loosen and soften impacted fecal matter that has become dried and attached to the wall of the bowel. A typical Colon Hydrotherapy treatment is a series of fills and releases. The colon is filled with purified water warmed to body temperature and upon the release, abdominal manipulation is used to identify, break up and remove impacted areas of the bowel. Aromatherapy is often used as well as reflexology trigger point manipulation to encourage the body to relax and let go of stored matter. The entire process takes about an hour and does not interfere with other daily activities.
Decaying matter in the colon is a breeding ground for pathogens that leach out into the blood stream causing a litany of unwanted conditions and can eventually lead to disease. More evidence is discovered all the time proving that the health of the digestive tract is the root of good health or disease in the body.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a valuable tool for detoxifying the body. Cleansing the bowel of accumulated toxins is of the utmost importance in today’s fast paced, drive through society. The amount of chemicals, additives, pesticides and dyes that make up the processed foods we eat contribute to an overworked colon, poor absorption, sluggish liver, brain fog, joint pain and digestive disturbances. Weather its constipation, IBS or acid reflux, when these symptoms appear it’s a signal from the body that the digestive tract is overburdened. Colon Hydrotherapy can improve transit time through the digestive tract, increase metabolism, improve absorption of vital nutrients, increase energy, reduce brain fog and improve mental outlook.
There is a long list of conditions that can be improved by using Colon Hydrotherapy, just a few are; allergies, skin conditions, candida (yeast) overgrowth, headaches, loss of vitality, lethargy, bloat, gas, IBS, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, bad breath and body odor, improved metabolism for weight loss. An efficiently functioning colon reduces the burden on other organs of the body, especially the liver, gallbladder and lymphatic system, which are important in the elimination of toxic substances from the body. Good colon health is the key to a vibrant life.
According to the CDC, more than 69% of Americans are overweight, meaning they have impacted fecal matter in their colons. If you have allergies, digestive imbalances, headaches, brain fog, skin issues, sleep disturbances, then chances are good that you really ARE full of crap.
Your body is an amazing biological machine. Mechanically, the body is a group of systems that perform with precision, or at least they’re supposed to. And this body has the ability to heal itself! Would you like to find out how to fuel and take care of this physical machine that you run around in?
I deal mainly with the digestive system, which is called the Alimentary Tract, meaning the plumbing that runs from your mouth to your anus. A person with a highly functioning digestive tract eats an 80% raw (or more!) diet of clean (organic, non-gmo) foods with blood type in mind, maintains optimal body weight by virtue of lifestyle, without the need for ‘diets’, calorie counting or constant vigilance. When you live this way your bowels move three times a day, sometimes more. You are clear minded, energetic, and active in your world. If this is not you, read on, maybe it’s time to make some changes!
If you are overweight, even by only 10 pounds, or suffering from allergies, brain fog, digestive disturbances like heartburn, constipation, bloating and gas, I would like you to know that there is relief without antacids and laxatives, and without coffee and candy throughout the day for energy, and without sleep aids at night. No matter what your doctor may tell you – having these ‘common ailments’ is not normal. Your body has natural healing abilities and rhythms that can be reawakened and revitalized.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a method of cleansing the bowel that has its origins in ancient times. References to bowel cleansing are made in the Essenes of Christ as well as the Ebers Papyrus. By gently filling the bowel with warm, purified water impacted matter is loosened and carried out of the body with the release.
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as colonic irrigation, colonics and high colonic can relieve many intestinal disturbances by removing decaying matter that leaches toxins out into the blood stream. With estimates that the average person has up to 25 pounds, (25 POUNDS!!!) of impacted fecal matter stored in the colon, it is no wonder that degenerative disease is on the rise.
An average Colon Hydrotherapy session can equal up to 9 bowel movements and colonics are cumulative! Meaning that when done in series, daily or every other day, the effects build upon themselves. Similar to peeling the layers of the onion, what is softened in a colonic one day is removed during the next treatment. Done often enough this will lead to a healthy colon, clean blood and optimally functioning organs.
Total bowel cleansing is a process. One must also be aware that diet and lifestyle changes are necessary, or all you are really doing is emptying and reloading the bowel. By virtue of modern life, and the fact that the organs of the body respond to our energy, stress and other outside factors it is true that the colon will never remain perfectly clean. It is after all, it is the septic tank of your body.
With Colon Hydrotherapy it is possible to remove matter that has been stored in the colon for years, thus improving health at a cellular level. This happens because over 70% of the immune system resides in the gut, so removing the accumulated matter allows improvement in immunity, as well as allowing major organs of the body (liver and skin are the first to benefit) to be relieved of their toxic overload.
If you look at a chart of reflex points of the colon you will find that each pocket (haustra) of the colon is energetically connected to a body part. So when you are seeking to recover from illness or just improve overall health it makes sense that you would want to remove as much impacted matter from as many pockets of the colon as possible.
As science and medicine further discover information about the enteric nervous system or ‘the second brain’ it is becoming clear that fixing the gut (largely accomplished by clearing the colon of impacted matter and reestablishing a good gut flora) is the basis for all good health, mental and physical.
