Colon Hydrotherapy

What is a Colonic?
A gravity colonic is a safe and systematic method that utilizes water to cleanse the colon of toxic waste.

Do Colonics Hurt?
Colonics should not be painful but some discomfort may be present. If the stool is very dehydrated or if there is a lot of gas pressure in the body a person may feel cramping while the waste is leaving the body. Once the waste has passed, you are left feeling wonderful!

Are Colonics Sanitary?
Yes. The waste that is removed during a colonic is maintained within a closed system. This means that the waste does not touch either the therapist or person receiving the colonic. Since the waste is maintained within a closed system, the smell is also undetectable. Furthermore; all of the equipment is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. We clean our speculums by manually removing any waste. Then the speculums are soaked in 35% hydrogen peroxide and are placed in a heat sterilization system called an autoclave. The autoclave is a perfectly thou rough method of cleaning and has been used by medical professionals for decades.

How often should I receive Colonics?
That is a very personal decision and should be made based off of your age, goals, health levels and diet. Working with a therapist is the best way to determine the proper number of treatments that will best suit your lifestyle.

Will I become dependant upon Colonics?
No. Gravity Method Colonics engage the colon muscles by encouraging a rhythmic peristalsis that works to actually strengthen the colon. If anything, you will find that you have more natural bowl movements upon engaging in a series of colonics.

But Colonics are Unnatural. Why do them?
Yes, I agree. Colonics are unnatural but so is every other aspect of our modern lives! We spend so much time engaging in unnatural behaviors that have degenerative effects on our health wellbeing and appearance. This is why it is necessary to engage in colon hydrotherapy. In order to combat the unnatural circumstances that plague our daily lives! Colon hydrotherapy and a properly combined diet are the tools that we need in order to help the body cope with our compromised environment/past eating habits. If we lived in a natural world, there would be no need for colonics because our bodies would be clean enough to regenerate and function on their own.

Why use gravity method colonics instead of colonics that utilize hydraulic pressure?

There are two big differences between gravity and pressurized colonics. The first difference is that the gravity method allows water to flow naturally into the body via gravity while the pressurized systems use water pressure to pump the water into the colon.

The method of allowing water to flow into the body without machine intervention is much more gentle than the pressureized method. Since it is more gentle it is also quite safe because the body will only take on the the water it wants to. In the gravity system the water and the body can work together as a team so that optimal results can be reached.

In fact, in a gravity method colonic, the combination of gentle water and massage allows us to regulate the body’s peristalsis to the most optimal rhythm. In a pressurized system, since the water is being pumped into the colon, the colonic system easily over powers the body’s muscle tone causing the body to loose control over the amount of water that it allows to enter. Since the water flows in to the colon in such a strong fashion it can stretch the colon, wash the waste farther back into the system, or even rupture the colon wall.

Another big difference between the two systems is that in the pressurized system the water is not allowed to flow into and out of the body simultaneously. This means that the therapist must fill the colon to its capacity and then release the waste tubing so that the water can rush out. This turns the colonic into nothing more than a prolonged enema. In the gravity method, there is a constant flow of water in and out of the body, creating a colonic that works in one fluid motion throughout the course of the treatment. The water’s constant motion allows for the optimal amount of waste to be removed from the body and also allows the colon’s peristalsis to work consistently.
