Your colon is more important than you think!
 

The colon, or large intestine, is a hollow, tube-like organ made up of a muscle structure that moves toxic materials by wavelike motions known as peristaltic action. It is approximately five (5) feet long and two (2) inches in diameter. The function of the large intestine is the collection, concentration, transport and temporary storage of intestinal waste products.

Research has found that normal elimination is six (6) inches of stool for every meal ingested. Elimination can be one to three times per day. Any more or less frequency should be discussed with the therapist.

If normal elimination does not take place, feces will accumulate causing a narrowing and possibly complete obstruction of the colon. When this occurs, the colon is no longer able to absorb nutrients and water or eliminate properly. This occurence in the colon could be the root cause for such conditions as:

Overweight Indigestion
Menstrual Cramps Headaches
Fatigue Anxiety
Allergies Food Cravings
Bad Breath Asthma
Backache Hemorrhoids
Skin Problems (acne, psoriasis) Fatigue
Coated Tongue Constipation
Loss of Concentration Gas/Bloating

 

Most people feeding on improper foods, such as refined flours and sugars, dairy products, fried foods, meats, etc., have colons replete with abnormal pockets, bulges, twists and crooks, which harbor impacted waste and depostis adhering to the colon walls, and can often serve as a home for parasites and harmful bacteria.

Benefits of Colon Therapy

Colon Therapy is a very relaxing and effective health treatment. Although most people feel relief after their first treatment, it takes a series of at least three to begin cleaning and restoring the condition of each individual. The effects on the body can be any and/or all of the following:

  • Cleansing, antiseptic and solvent action on the intestines, whereby putrified material, impacted fecal matter and excessive mucus are removed from the colon.
  • Removing parasites.
  • Hydrating the body. Given that our bodies are made up of 60-70% water, our cells function more effectively when we are hydrated.
  • Eliminating as much as 10 to 30 pounds over a series of treatments by merely cleansing the lower intestinal tract. Anywhere between 5 and 40 pounds of waste material can accumulate within the walls of the colon.
  • Calming effect on the nervous system.
  • Reshaping the colon by eliminating pockets of waste and spastic constrictors enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
  • Increasing circulation enhances toxic waste removal that helps restore beauty and health to the skin.

Concerns & Considerations

Safe and No Cross-Contamination
The gravity flow hydrotherapy system is built for the patient's comfort and health. Its features are:

  • gravity to insure that the pressure of the water going in the colon doesn't exceed the pressure of gravity, thereby ensuring the colon will not get over-pressurized and cause a rupture in the wall of the intestines.
  • regulatable vacuum suction that allows easy waste removal and helps tone colon muscles
  • check valves to ensure water travel in one direction only.
  • each treatment utilizes a one-use, individually packaged, pre-sterilized plastic tubing.

Completely safe and sanitary.

Non-Embarrassing
Each patient is in a private room and covered with a sheet at all times. The closed system of the colonic machine allows waste and intestinal gas to go directly into the sewer, reducing occurrence of mess and odor.

Non-Painful
Occasionally, there may be some discomfort when the muscles of the colon contract suddenly, expelling liquid and waste into the rectum. This contraction may feel like cramping or gas pressure in the colon. Usually, the process is mild and gentle.

Non-Habit Forming
Colonics help tone the intestine walls so that the entire colon can function more effectively.

Enhances Intestinal Flora
By eliminating putrification, a clean colon is a breeding ground for friendly bacteria aided by a good diet.
