COLON HYDROTHERAPY / COLONICS
What Is Colon Hydrotherapy / Colonics?
Colon hydrotherapy (also known as Colonics) is a safe, effective method of hydrating and removing waste (fecal matter, gas and mucous) from the large intestine (your colon). Using warm, filtered and pressure regulated water, waste is softened and loosened from the walls of the colon and evacuated through natural peristalsis, which is the muscle movement that food uses to travel through your digestive system.
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT COLON HYDROTHERAPY / COLONICS
Why Would We Want To Do This?
Because a healthy well-functioning bowel is essential for the maintenance of optimal health. A build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movement, slow transit time, and constipation. Anyone who has suffered from chronic constipation can tell you how unwell they feel. In addition, if the ileocecal valve between your small and large intestine isn’t working properly, waste can flow back into your small intestine and your bloodstream, impacting your organs and other body systems.
Regardless of whether you have a bowel movement every day, there is always some buildup in your colon. Many people think that it is like a garden hose, but it is actually a series of ‘pouches’, called haustra. So while fecal matter, undigested food and mucous travel through, they leave a bit behind and over time, this can build up. Think of your teeth; you brush them twice every day, but there is still residue built up over time. Your colon is the same.
How Do We Do This?
Using the FDA and Canada Health approved Aquanet EC-2000, a disposable speculum is gently inserted into the rectum, and a waste tube is attached to the end of the speculum and the machine, allowing you to see what waste is travelling from you via the view tube and then into the sanitation system without odour. The water that is used is taken from the municipal supply, but then filtered and sterilized using UV Rays and heated to about body temperature. This ensures your safety and comfort. We allow the water to flow in and out of your colon, and periodically do a ‘fill’, where we keep the water flowing in, but stop it from flowing out. This fills the colon a bit more and helps the water break the waste away from the wall of your colon. Because your therapist is always with you, the two of you are in constant communication, and the pressure in your colon is constantly being monitored, there is no danger to you whatsoever. While no part of this process should be painful, you may experience some discomfort when the speculum is being inserted. Some clients do feel some cramping and in some cases a bit of nausea when the waste is coming away from the colon wall, but the water pressure can be adjusted to make you as comfortable as possible.
