Colonic—A Gentle Irrigation For Your Colon
A restorative method for improved health
Do You Fit This Description?
Have you ever said, “I’m not constipated, I eliminate every day and I don’t need a colon cleansing?” Bowel problems can occur in many people in spite of “daily eliminations”. The colon, or large intestine, is the sewage system of the body. Very often the complete length of the colon is impacted with old, hardened fecal matter. This leaves only a narrow channel for the small, softer feces to pass through. Failure to cleanse the colon is like having an entire garbage collection staff go on strike for months on end! If the wastes in the colon are allowed to build up, they may decay and be absorbed through the walls of the colon into the blood stream. These toxins may poison the brain and nervous system with the possibility of depression, irritability, weakness and listlessness. They may poison the lungs so that your breath becomes foul. They may poison the digestive system so that your skin becomes sallow and unhealthy. In short, every organ is affected by the state of your colon, and you my look and feel old, have stiff and painful joints, dull eyes and think sluggishly. Finally, you “lose the joy of living”. As Dr.Weger writes in The Law of Disease: “Disease is a warning. It is a friend, not a foe, of mankind. It manifests itself in its various forms, from a slight cold to the more severe inflammations for the sole purpose of ridding the body of accumulated poisons.”
History of Colon Therapy
Colon Therapy is a very 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.
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 then 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.
Frequency Of Procedure
An initial series of between 3 to 12 procedures are recommended. Years of improper nutrition cannot possibly be reversed in a few procedures. More procedures may be required in cases of chronic constipation or the atonic (sluggish) colon condition. Following the initial program, it is advisable to have a series of 2-3 procedures every change of season or once a month to maintain optimal colon health. Imbalances of the Colon Structural, functional and metabolic imbalances of the colon are manifested in various forms. The effect of auto-intoxication and constipation are shown in the most common abnormalities of the colon, such as adhesions, ballooning sigmoid, colitis, diverticulosis, mucosal dysfunction, spastic bowel, strictures and ulcerations.

We take better care of our cars then we do 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.
