Colon Hydrotherapy, also called Colonic Irrigation or Colonics, is an effective, safe and gentle method of cleaning the colon (large intestine), in order to eliminate accumulated waste and toxic materials from the bowel. By introducing filtered water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. Nearly 90% of all degenerative disease begins in the digestive track.

The colon is the point of origin for most disease because it's where all your waste is concentrated, readying to exit your body. The problem is that sometimes these toxins don't get eliminated quickly and two things happen:

  1. the waste begins to rot - literally, and

  2. the toxins reabsorb into your body,


making you queasy, tired, and achy. A dirty colon becomes a breeding ground for parasites, yeast infections, tumors and disease.

The human body is designed to be a self-cleansing organism. Unfortunately however, the modern life style often makes it difficult for the bowel to perform its natural functions efficiently. Lack of any form of exercise, poor diet, overeating, environmental pollution, pesticides, additives, preservatives in food, and the stress of daily life place unnatural burdens on the colon, making the efficient elimination of waste, mucous and toxins difficult.

In particular, when the colon is packed or lined with accumulated hardened waste matter, or lodged in the pockets of the colon wall, the muscular contractions (peristalsis) are obstructed and more waste and toxic matter build up along the walls, resulting in the colon's inability to evacuate properly.

Waste build up over many months or years can actually result in five, ten, fifteen or more pounds of weight, causing an abnormally shaped colon. The clogged colon interferes with the absorption of food, depriving the body of necessary nutrients and resulting in fermentation and purification of undigested food and creating poisons.

The poisons are reabsorbed into the blood stream and carried to every part of the body, causing a tired and listless feeling; effects on the brain and the nervous system cause depression, fear, anger, stress and irritability; lungs produce foul breath and breathing is stressful; dysfunction of the digestive organs causes skin problems and a sallow complexion; and joints become stiff and painful due to toxic deposits. What specific conditions respond particularly well to colon hydrotherapy? Chronic or acute constipation, indigestion, gas, fatigue: especially chronic fatigue syndrome, headaches, depression, stress and nervousness, allergies, lung disorders, including asthma, skin problems, including fatigue, eczema and psoriasis, toxicity due to drugs, alcohol, smoking or toxic chemicals, many acute illness, such as colds, flu and sore throat, joint and circulation problems, mucous congestion anywhere in the body.

Maintaining Health! Colonics also stimulate the liver, kidneys, and lymphatic system to dump toxins.  If you already feel healthy and are interested in maintaining health, colonics can help with increasing energy, maintaining proper weight and preventing disease.
