WHAT IS A COLONIC?
Using purified water, the colon is cleansed via a specialized instrument which is inserted into the
anus. Water is slowly added and released, taking with it the wastes in the colon. This gentle
process lasts for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, with alternating water temperatures that stimulate
the most efficient cleansing of the colon area. Careful sterilization is practiced by all responsible colon
Colonics have been in use throughout history. They are mentioned in texts from ancient India and
Egypt, and many American medical doctors at the turn of the century history. Due to 20th Century
fascination with pharmaceuticals and surgery, the idea of detoxification and proper nutrition was not
part of the mainstream medicine until recently.
The benefits of colonics can be seen with more consistent bowel movements, weight loss, clearer
skin, and increased energy levels. As the body acclimates itself to the colonic process, more toxic
material is removed with each process.
New research has recently refocused medical attention on the importance of our digestive tract and
bowel integrity in the quest for good health. Proper colon health comes not only from cleansing the
bowel with colon hydrotherapy, but rebuilding the fundamental health of the intestines with good
diet and other aids for the proper absorption of the nutrients in our food.
The foods we eat today are over-processed and do not have sufficient fiber to promote peristalsis,
which empties our colon efficiently. The use of white flour, meats, fatty foods, sugar, salt, colorings,
additives, and the lack of sufficient fruits and vegetables in our daily diets creates stagnation,
constipation, diarrhea and many other toxic conditions. When we eat over-processed foods, combined
with our fast-paced lifestyle, our intestines produce mucus to help digest and eliminate these foods.
However, over time, the mucus thickens and hardens, creating bloating, constipation, irritable bowel
syndrome, diverticulitis, and other intestinal complications. When the colon is cleansed over a series
of treatments, years of poor food choices and poor health can be offset. This in turn allows the
intestines to clean themselves, restore peristalsis, and begin proper nutrition absorption. This process
is aided significantly by better food choices in our daily menus as well.
