Colon Health: Colonics
Colonics have been around since the beginning of time.
Colon Therapy is an ancient method of treatment and a form of healing. Enemas were recorded as early as 1500 BC in the Ebers Papyrus—an ancient Egyptian medical document. Hippocrates, Galen and Pare also promoted the use of enema therapy. In those earlier times, people performed an enema in a lake or river using a hollow reed to allow water to flow into the rectum. Bernard Jensen, DC, says, “In times past, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were taught how to care for the bowel.” Somehow, bowel wisdom got lost and it became something no one wanted to talk about anymore.
However, we are going to talk about it now. In our current culture, our intestines are abused and neglected. This has lead to colon cancer and likely related to many healthcare problems today. Every chronic condition needs to be looked at from a toxic load on the body by poor elimination. Proper elimination is needed to restore health. Colon hydrotherapy is an effective means for cleaning the large intestine, deleting impaction and restoring hydration.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of warm, filtered water into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. This is a restorative, painless procedure, which is both relaxing and effective. The individual lies comfortably on a custom treatment table and a small speculum is gently inserted in the rectum. The therapist monitors the temperature and pressure of the water infused into and out of the colon (large intestine) without any assistance on the part of the individual. The entire procedure takes approximately 40-minutes. The colon hydrotherapy method cleanses the entire colon without stressing the individual. The instrument features a disposable unit which eliminates any possible contamination to the patient from a previous procedure. The system is closed and waste material is eliminated through the instrument and out the drain line, avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual. Every organ of the body is affected by the health of the colon.
We Take Better Care of Our Cars Than Our Bodies
How often do you get the oil changed in your car? You don’t have to go through life suffering with awful migraines, years of constipation, back aches, acne, and skin problems. Colon Hydrotherapy is helpful for all of those symptoms and many others. Periodic cleaning of the colon could prevent stagnation and minimize the exposure of potential cancer-causing agents to the colon wall. Colon Hydrotherapy has the possibility of dissolving caked-on waste material such as feces, gas, mucus and toxic compounds by removal through the anus. The result is a cleaner, healthier colon and an improved overall health status. Colon Hydrotherapy is often referred to as colonics, high colonics or colon irrigation. It is a very safe and effective method to cleanse the Colon (large intestine) of accumulated waste and toxins, gently and gradually.
