COLON CLEANSING is often referred to as a COLONIC, COLON IRRIGATION and/or Colon Hydrotherapy.

Imagine not taking your kitchen garbage out for weeks, months, years?
What is it going to look like, to smell like?
This is a description of putrefied food stored inside your colon.

Over period of time, many people develop a thick layer of fecal toxic matter that coats the colon. It hardens and becomes impacted, reducing the efficiency of the bowel, and in some cases, completely obstructing normal elimination of waste matter from the body. Colon loses its ability to properly eliminate all waste from the gastrointestinal tract.

As a toxins build up, they disturb normal body metabolism function, as a result of which person gains pounds after pounds despite exercising program, or loosing pounds despite good diet. Removing the layer of fecal matter coating the intestines (with anywhere from 10 to 25 lbs.) in many individuals, allows improved assimilation of the nutrients from foods and can alleviate symptoms of vitamin, minerals and other nutrient deficiencies.

When colon becomes saturated, harmful toxins get absorbed into the bloodstream, where the lymphatic and circulatory systems, as well as the lungs and kidneys, become overburdened and expose a person to serious health risks.

Heavy weight of buildup in the colon can create prolapsed colon, which can push and squeeze other live important organs, possibly cut the circulation.

Colon Cancer
Is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, second only to lung cancer in men, and breast cancer in women. And at least two million Americans suffer colon related diseases including... colitis, ileitis, diverticulitis and approximately l00,000 colostomy surgeries are performed each year!

Health Facts:

Do you suffer from:
Constipation, Diarrhea, Distended Abdomen, Bloating, Bad Breath, Headaches, Chronic Fatigue, Irritability, Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression, Low Sex Drive, Obesity, Difficult Weight Loss, Arthritis, Allergies, Asthma, Skin Problems, Frequent Colds, Yeast Infections?

Colon Cleansing or Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle, natural procedure of cleansing the colon with purified water from deadly toxins, such as impacted fecal matter, heavy metals, mucous, bacteria, viruses, microbes, infections, parasites and much more, which we get through air, food, water, as a result of our TOXIC modern world.

Colon Cleansing enhances energy level, improves metabolism and the immune system.

Cleansing the colon with the use of hydrotherapy is not a new concept. Forms of colonic irrigation have been used successfully for decades to relieve chronic toxicity and even acute cases of toxemia.

Colon Hydrotherapy, with its constant flow of water in and out opens the colon allowing more surface area to be cleansed as opposed to enemas.
The colon, together with the kidneys, lungs and skin are responsible for eliminating waste from the body.

Colon Cleansing can be most beneficial in helping to restore good health by:
• Clearing the colon of old, hardened, waste material and harmful toxins
• Restoring proper pH balance to the body
• Stimulating the immune systems
• Allowing freer passage of nutrients into the blood
• Increasing prevention of toxic absorption via healthy mucosa
• Providing a favorable environment for bacteria and microflora for digestion
• Strengthening peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity in the colon
• Promoting a return of normal, regular bowel movements

"As a nation we've become more concerned with how food tastes than whether or not they are good for us. For the sake of taste and the convenience we choose to consume foods that have been refined and processed to the point that we receive very little nutritional benefit from them.  America has become a nation full of people who are overweight, have allergies, chronic pain, poor digestion, degenerative diseases such as arthritis, heart disease and cancer. We live with too much stress, are exposed to toxins on a regular basis and have probably the worst food habits in the world."
Charles C. Ankeney

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Colon Cleansing
What is Colon Cleansing or Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Cleansing or Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle, natural method of washing long-term wastes from the entire colon. When this is done, the body no longer has to deal with wastes accumulated during a lifetime, and can use more of its own strength to heal itself and fight disease.

Who needs Colon Cleansing?
Virtually everyone has these built-up wastes in their colon. Most people in developed countries eat a lot of processed foods. As these (unnatural) foods move through the colon, fluids are absorbed during the digestive process, and a very sticky waste is created. These wastes cling to the colon walls and rot, giving off toxins that the body has already rejected.

How does Colon Cleansing work?
Colon Cleansing uses state-of-the-art equipment to gently introduce purified water into the colon. During a colon hydrotherapy session, the pressure and temperature are controlled by a trained and experienced colon hydrotherapist who stays right there with the client. The therapist keeps the temperature and pressure at comfortable levels based on the client's feelings.

Is Colon Cleansing safe and sanitary?
Yes. Each client receives his or her own brand-new speculum and plastic hose, which are immediately disposed of after use. Since all water and wastes ( two separate tubes ) are completely contained in a closed system, there is no mess and no odor. The client's dignity is preserved by the use of private draping and room. The procedure is professionally performed and preserves modesty.

How many Colon Cleansing sessions does a person need?
It took a long time to build up the long-term wastes in your colon, so in order to remove them gently, it will take more than one session. Depending on health condition, level of toxicity, and desire to improve, etc., a person might need from 2 to 6 sessions. After the series, a person might cleanse once a month.

Can Colon Cleansing affect the flora balance?
Good flora does not usually predominate in colons that have old wastes stuck to their walls. Colon hydrotherapy therefore washes out not only the bad flora, but the environment in which it grows. Then good flora has the ability to thrive in a clean environment. Taking acidophilus speeds the improvement of the bacterial balance in the colon.   Also, good flora can be re-introduced into the colon by eating foods containing good flora, such as acidophilous and bifidus foods, and by direct introduction of these cultures into the colon.

Can Colon Cleansing affect the electrolyte balance?
Colon hydrotherapy has very little effect on the balance of electrolytes. The few that are lost are replaced by proper eating or the fresh juices that you might drink later.

Can Colon Cleansing help to control weight?
Research from scientists in both America and Europe have demonstrated that people in the richer nations carry within their bodies anywhere from 10 to 50 pounds of accumulated toxic materials. Although this material is stored throughout the body, the majority of it is stored in the colon. Accumulated toxic waste materials slow down metabolism, beginning after age 25 to 30. Colon hydrotherapy helps a person to lose the toxic weight and increase the metabolic rate at the same time.

How does a Colon Hydrotherapy treatment compare to an enema?
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with colon hydrotherapy, the entire length of the colon (the large intestinal tract approximately 5 to 5½ feet in length) is reached. Colon hydrotherapy is many more times effective. According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker, "One colon irrigation is equivalent to 30 enemas."  Additionally, an enema fails to train the colon in peristalsis and are known to be habit-forming. Colon hydrotherapy does train the colon and is not habit-forming.

How much of the intestines are actually cleansed during a colon hydrotherapy treatment?
During a treatment it is possible for a professional colon therapist to cleanse the full length of the colon (large intestine). The small intestine are not specifically involved in a colon hydrotherapy treatment. The small intestine may be cleansed with the help of an oral (herb-based) intestinal cleanser.

Should I see my doctor before my first Colonic session?
If you have a concern about your health or the appropriateness of colon hydrotherapy you should consult your or our medical doctor. If you are pregnant, have rectal bleeding and severe abdominal pain, or have been diagnosed with diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, severe hemorrhoids, rectal or intestinal tumors, you may not be a candidate for colon hydrotherapy treatments. Professionally administered colon hydrotherapy is safe, and generally if you are free of the above sited conditions, a medical examination prior to therapy, should not be necessary.

Does having a menstrual period at the time of a Colonic session have any effect on the treatment?
No, in fact it's usually a good time to receive a treatment, since your body is already cleansing. Your flow will not interfere with the success of the treatment.

What should I do to prepare for a Colon Hydrotherapy cleansing?
You may take a warm bath night before to soften toxins.  You may begin Mega Cleanse and Mega Cleanse EX home cleanse at least one week prior to your colonic which will help you to start detoxification process. You may also do warm Castor Oil Compress on the abdominal area and take a small fleet enema night before. Drink plenty of water. Refrain from eating 2 hours before the cleansing.

Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
Most of the times our patients feel energized and refreshed after procedure. You can take a sauna after colon cleansing to help your body to get rid of toxins. Simple vegetable broth or peppermint tea is usually soothing at this time.

Can I work directly after having a Colonic?
Certainly. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.

What is the difference between a gravity colon hydrotherapy machine and plumbed colon hydrotherapy machine?
A typical bowel movement exerts up to 1.5 pounds per square inch (psi) of pressure in the colon. The gravity machine, like an enema, uses gravity to exert pressure up to 2 psi, and it's not readily controllable. In contrast, the plumbed machine has from 0.8 to 1.5 psi, and is very easily controlled by valves on the machine. The pressure is dictated by the client and guaranteed by the colon hydrotherapist who constantly monitors both the client and the water pressure.

What is the difference between colon hydrotherapy and herbal laxatives?
Laxatives are essentially just another chemical invasion of the body, manipulating the body’s systems by creating an imbalance to achieve certain results. As such, they are irritating to the system, and they flush out only the fresh toxic waste material. Because they require the body to send so much body fluid to the colon in order to wash out the wastes, they dehydrate the body. One side effect is that laxatives stimulate the colon to produce a watery mucous which passes quickly through the colon leaving most of the toxic waste material still stuck to the colon walls. Finally, laxatives can be habit-forming as the warnings on the product label admit. Colon Hydrotherapy helps to hydrate the body.

Is Colonic procedure painful?
The procedure is not painful. It feels rather like having a very healthy urge to have a bowel movement, which the procedure satisfies continually.

How much time is necessary for each Colonic?
Again, each person is different due to personal circumstances. On average, the procedure lasts  30-45 minutes. It is a good idea to plan for one hour in order to include dressing room time, consultation after the session, etc.
We strongly believe, that one day people will understand, that colon hygiene as much important, as dental hygiene, and colon cleansing will become as a regular routine procedure, as a teeth check up.

“After concluding a 25 year study of over 5,000 cases, every physician should realize that intestinal toxins are the most important primary and contributing causes of many disorders and health problems of the human body."
Dr. Anthony Badzier, Professor of Gastroenterology, New York

"The colon is the sewer system of the body, but with neglect and abuse, it becomes a cesspool of toxins that spill over into the body."
Dr. William Hunter
