Frequently Asked Questions about Colonic
1. Do I really have to do this?
Many clients have asked that question if they can do cleansing without participating in hydrotherapy colon cleansing. One of the most important and effective ways to cleanse the colon is through colon hydrotherapy.
Colonic Irrigation using the gravitational method is an internal bath that helps cleanse the Colon of Poisons, Gas, and Accumulated Fecal Matter and most important all kind of infection including bad bacteria, Candida-yeast, parasites , mucous plaque where all this stuff reside and multiply. Unlike an ENEMA, it does not involve the retention of water.
There is NO discomfort, NO internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the Colon.
At the same time, an Abdominal Massage is given to stimulate the Colon to recover its natural Shape, Tone, and Peristaltic Wave Action. No other system can equal this process. Colonic cleansing was practiced by the Essenes some 3,000 years ago. It has been introduced into modern day and the comfort of our clinic with up to date equipment. After cleansing with water you will fill clean and relaxing.
2. Is colon therapy embarrassing?
Not at all. Just the opposite - very comfortable and private.
You insert yourself small nozzle tube ( size of small pencil) into the rectum , rubber tubing carries the water in and wastes out in a gravity fed flow of water. No mess, no fuss, no odor � in fact, a very relaxing experience. And you are completely covered. In addition you are watching TV.
3. Is the procedure painful?
No, painless (great position with knee support). The procedure is very gentle with a wonderfully light and empty feeling afterward.
4. Will one cleansing completely empty the colon?
Almost never. Many of us have 10 or more pounds of impacted feces and more importantly a lot of hardening mucus that prevents from assimilation of nutrients.
This is hardened, rubbery material and substantial work must be done to remove it.
Serious of procedures strongly advisable.
5. Does colon therapy wash away all bacteria, even the good? The friendly bacteria can live only in an acidic environment, whereas the harmful ones thrive in an alkaline environment. Most people due to improper eating, lack of exercise, and poor elimination, have an alkaline colon. So, it�s very good to wash away the bacteria in alkaline colon. The great benefit of the cleansing program is to change the environment from alkaline to acid where friendly bacteria can survive.
If your bowel is toxic you have little or no good intestinal flora to begin with. As in gardening, if you don�t prepare the soil and fertilize the ground, plants will not live.
In the bowel we have to make the conditions favorable for friendly bacteria to survive and populate in the colon.
Removing toxic material , infection , gases is first step.
Replenishing the good bacteria can be accomplish by oral supplementation and by adding Bio-Bifidus Product as an additive after your colonic treatment. Your colon therapist will explain you how to use the best on a market intestinal flora.
6. Is the procedure safe and sanitary?
With the use of small nozzle (size of pencil) disposable tube, the equipment is made �new� every session. There is total hygienic safety, superior even to sterilization.
7. Can one become dependent on it?
Could the colon stop functioning on its own?
Colon Hydrotherapy retrains the muscles of the bowel to regain strength. It�s like a GYM for the colon. The bowel muscles are forced to work against the water, providing resistance much like a weight provides resistance against a muscle in bodybuilding. After the bowel has regained its strength, it works better on its own. Colonics are like colon aerobics.
8. What other benefits may I expect from colon hydrotherapy? By re-toning the bowel wall and improving colon function, the entire body is able to function more efficiently. When the colon is clean and healthy we experience a feeling of well-being. Common effects are relieve from constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating, different pains, digestive problems, chronic fatigue, stress, tension, nervousness.
Elimination of bad breath, parasites, Candida- yeast infection, allergies, headaches, sinus drainage, a loosening of mucous in the lungs, improved range of motion, skin tightening, feeling younger, clearing up of acne and skin conditions, improved posture, improved bowel functioning, flatter stomach , weight loss , gaining energy, improved sexual performance.
9. What particular benefits for people can bring colonic?
Colon cleansing for women can be particularly advantageous to alleviate pre and post menstrual discomfort and pain during menstruation.
Men, experiencing prostate problems, may also obtain relieve from a series procedures of colonic irrigation. Even cancer patients, experiencing increased toxic stress and constipation during chemo and radiation treatments can benefit from colonic hydrotherapy.
Douglas Brodie, M.D. of Reno Nevada, a practicing oncologist said� I have found over the years that cancer patients who are not doing well usually are toxic and not being cleansed. Any reduction of toxic stress on the major organs of elimination will help in strengthening the immune system�.
10. Will laxative, enemas or herbal cleansing are the same result?
Using an enema you are missing about a feet of the colon. Waddington, M.D. says there is no resemblance of one to the other, except that both proceed with water in the rectum. Enemas use single, high-volume, pressurized fills, sometimes fatigue the colon.
During colonic the water goes all the way through 5 feet of the colon or bowel to the ileocecal valve (the is where the small and large intestine meet).
During 1 hour of Colonic Procedure 20 gallons of water goes through your colon completely without pressure only by gravity. Colon hydrotherapy involves repeated inflow and outflow of filtered, temperature- controlled water, to slowly dissolve accumulated toxic material. This gently repeated process replaces the need for pressure. Less pressure is used than when �bearing down �during bowel movement. Colon Hydrotherapy is far more effective and comfortable.
Colonics also exercise the colon. Unlike enemas no strain is exerted on the anus, preventing aggravation to hemorrhoids .
Laxatives are an irritant causing the body to produce a thin watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon. Laxatives ca also became very habit-forming; eventually stop the peristaltic movement to work at all.
Herbal cleansing is good in general but this form of cleansing can�t be substitute for water. Even though the sellers of different cleansing herbal products will try to convince you its better and colon hydrotherapy is not necessary.
Can you imagine cleaning your house or washing the dishes or car or cloth or brushing your teeth without water? Maybe, it�s possible but it�s effective?
Its common sense, everybody consider water like the best cleansing substance on our planet.
But to combine herbal cleansing product with colon hydrotherapy is the best beneficial approach to rich your goal � cleanse, rejuvenate and fill wonderful!
Moreover, as you are taking herbs and supplements to detoxify your body you would be overloaded with releasing toxins. If these releasing toxins are not effectively removed from the body quickly via colon hydrotherapy, toxins will be reabsorbed into the bloodstream and will produce such discomforts as malaise, nausea, headache, joint and muscle pain, foul-smelling breath and rush. Detoxification and cleansing can cause some healing discomforts like healing crisis BUT using colonics during cleansing of the body can eliminate these discomforts and make your cleansing experience pleasurable.
