“The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption”
Dr N.W. Walker, D.Sc, Ph.D
The Colon is intimately related to every cell and tissue in the body, the blood is filtered through the colon walls and the colon is responsible for eliminating food and other waste products from the body. If the colon is not taken care of a range of health concerns can develop ranging from skin problems to a weakened immunity to serious disease.
When the colon is clear of toxic waste and populated with beneficial flora the whole body receives benefits which include:
- Increased energy and vitality
- Healthy, natural weight loss
- Detoxification of the organs
- Healthy clear complexion
- Relief of digestive disturbances such as IBS, bloating, burping, flatulence and constipation
Causes of Poor Colon Health
A lack of physical exercise combined with the over consumption of the typical western diet are the main causes of poor colon health. Diets high in fat, refined foods, animal products sugar, preservatives and alcohol produce levels of toxic waste and mucus in the body which unless eliminated efficiently end up impacted inside the bowel wall.
An unhealthy person can be carrying around a few kilos of impacted toxic waste material which becomes a breeding ground for pathogens such as parasites and fungi, resulting in the rest of the body receiving a dirty blood supply. No organ or cell in the body can function optimally without a fresh supply of clean, oxygenated blood. If the colon is holding toxins disease and dysfunction are the ultimate outcome.
A Colon Hydrotherapy Session Explained
Colon Hydrotherapy involves filling the lower intestine with warm, purified water to facilitate the removal of accumulated waste. The water enters your colon through a pencil thin tube inserted 2cm into your anus and fills the colon with water which will stimulate peristalsis, the urge to have a bowel movement.
All waste is eliminated easily, comfortably and hygienically. The tube stays in place for the duration of the process and there is no contact with any of the expelled wastes.
The treatment lasts approximately 45 mins during which time about 25 litres of filtered water is introduced intermittently into the colon hydrating the bowel whilst loosening faecal plaque and impacted waste matter. The warm water softens and loosens the contents of the colon, aiding in elimination of toxins, bacteria, parasites, worms, candida, gas, undigested food material and mucous.
There is no mess or odour and you are comfortably lying on your back and covered throughout the session, ensuring your dignity and privacy is maintained at all times. We use soft lighting, music and aromatherapy essential oils to help you relax and make your treatment more nurturing and enjoyable.
Our experienced therapists are on hand to maintain the correct water flow and temperature at all times and are able to give you a relaxing abdominal massage and/or a heated wheat pack to place on your tummy to aid with elimination of wastes and support you throughout the process if you require it.
We use the ‘Libbe’ or ‘open system’ which offers you the option of being left alone if you prefer to control the procedure yourself, which you can stop at any time if you feel the need.
“If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal tract is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing. I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health”
