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:
|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.
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:
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.
A Healthy Colon
and No Cross-Contamination
The gravity flow hydrotherapy system is built for the patient's
comfort and health. Its features are:
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
vacuum suction that allows easy waste removal and helps tone colon
- check valves to ensure water travel in one direction only.

Completely safe and sanitary.
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.
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.
Colonics help tone the intestine walls so that the entire colon
can function more effectively.
By eliminating putrification, a clean colon is a breeding ground
for friendly bacteria aided by a good diet.
