"Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the intestinal system. When the intestines are dirty, the blood is dirty, and so are the organs and tissues. It is the intestinal system that has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place."

What is Colon Hydrotherapy? 
                         Colon Hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy or high enemas. Regardless of the name, they all refer to the use of water for internal cleansing of the colon, or large intestines, without the use of drugs or chemicals.                       
                         Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle washing of the large intestine using purified water. The client lies on a LIBBE table and water is introduced very slowly into the colon through a small, pencile size, disposable speculum. When slight pressure builds up in the colon, the water is released. The holding and releasing process is repeated throughout a 55 minutes session,.The feet and abdomen are thoroughly massaged during the session.   
                   The physical goals of each session are to hydrate the colon thus hydrating the blood and other systems of the body. This removes waste, removes old built up waste, stimulates peristalsis, rehabilitates the nerves, muscles, glands, circulatory and immune systems that form the components of the digestive system, and to reposition the intestines. 
 
 What Exactly Does Colon Hydrotherapy Accomplish?
                 Colon hydrotherapy is a process of removing fecal material from the colon walls and diluting the bacteria and toxic concentrations in the large intestines (the colon).   
 
Why Should I Have A Colonic?
                   Having a colonic is an effective way to loosen and clean the turns and bends in the colon. Colon cleansers can't do it alone. The fecal matter will just take the path of least resistance leaving trapped fecal material in the bends and turns of the colon. Doing colon cleansers, proper diet and colonics are optimum for total colon cleansing. 
 
 How Does a Person Know If They Need Colonic Irrigation?
                      Almost anyone can benefit from some internal cleansing. Everyday our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Our modern life style has taken its toll on our digestive and elimination organs. Refined processed, low fiber foods, trans fats, poor digestion, a lack of exercise and ever increasing levels of stress all contribute to our current gastrointestinal health crisis. When normal byproducts and toxins can be eliminated from the body there is no problem. But when the toxins build up faster that they can be eliminated, or when the elimination systems are under active, these toxins accumulate and create the necessary preconditions for disease in the body.
 
How Will I Feel After A Colonic?
                 Most people feel terrific! More energy, better digestion, regular bowel movements, less gas and bloating. You can see it in their eyes and glowing face.
 
 How Many Colonics Should I Have?
                 This depends on your colon's health. The condition of your colon depends on diet, stress, years of abuse, and family history. The process takes time, how many colonics to be suggested is something you and your therapist will be in partnership with in your journey to health.  The suggestion is to have 6 colonics to start. Have three in nine days, then one a week for three weeks. Then evaluate your own body at that time. 12 colonic sessions is the maximum you can have in one year.
 
What Should I Eat During The Series Of Colonics?
Do's:  Foods that are alive and not processed so your digestive system can heal and absorb the nutrients from food. Foods that are incorrect create disturbance and stress to the digestive system causing improper function and absorption. Eat plenty of vegetables, salads, soups, fruit, whole grains, fiber and pure water (not tap).
Doing a cleanse before a colonic will help the elimination process, as well. Your therapist or nutritionist will be glad to create a plan for you. 
Dont's:  Anything processed, bottled or canned; pasta, pasteurized dairy, Wheat, bread, cake, cookies, crackers, muffins, bagels, or pizza.
