Our gut is like the root of a tree, if the roots are in a dump, the tree can never thrive.
The last few decades genetics provided enormous insight with the decoding of the human genome. The new century however focuses on the importance of epigenetics. We know that gens can be expressed, suppressed or remain dormant dependent on environmental conditions. From a toxicological point of view we address the toxins from the environment and the toxins from our own gut. An unhealthy gut creates fermentation and putrefaction which alters the gut flora and encourages growth of pathogens like fungi and parasites. Thus, gut health is one of the main pillars of human health.
Colonic Hydrotherapy or irrigation is a method of de-toxifying the body to help in its natural healing process. Warm, filtered water is introduced into the colon to assist the elimination of stored fecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances including bad bacteria, parasites and yeast organisms. Colonics is an extension of an enema which has been used as a curative tool for thousands of years stretching back to ancient Egypt. The difference is that with Colonics you can clean the whole of the Colon rather than a small part.
How can this benefit me?
The gut is like the root of a tree. If the roots of a tree stand in a dump, the tree can never be healthy. If however, the milieu, the soil where the tree is planted in is healthy, fertile and clean, your tree can grow and blossom. It is the same with us, if our gut is healthy we can digest our foods, we can resorb our vitamins and nutrients we are strong and full of vitality. Just by supporting gut health we can see improvements in a whole line of discomforts like constipation, diarrhea, inflammation, colitis, spastic colon, halitosis, flatulence, hemorrhoids, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) candida, bloating etc. Healthy digestion takes a huge burden off the liver, our skin gets better, acne, eczema and psoriasis, asthma, allergies, fatigue, depression, anxiety, lethargy may improve with this simple support of physiology, the detoxification of the gut with Colon Hydrotherapy.
Treatment. Before the first treatment a detailed case history is taken followed by dietary recommendations to help your individual gut restore its natural balance and function. These will consider food intolerances as well as your Blood Group. An explanation of the procedure proceeds the colonic itself which can take between 30 to 45 minutes. During this time warm filtered water is gently introduced into the colon via the rectum whilst the use of special techniques including ultra-sonic massage, acupressure, Reiki, reflexology points, stimulate the release of toxins and stored matter.
How many treatments are needed? Normally a minimum of three in one-week intervals, if you have never had colonics before, are needed to adequately clean the large intestine. However, this is a variable factor depending on age, dietary habits, lifestyle and presenting symptoms.
Is it safe? Yes. The water is double filtered and introduced at low level pressure (lower than what can be obtained through a gravity machine) so there is no danger of bowel perforation. All equipment used is in sterile packs and disposed of after each treatment.
