Colon Hydrotherapy

What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle, natural method of washing acquired wastes from the entire colon. When completed, the body no longer has to deal with waste accumulated during a lifetime, which prevents the body from healing itself and fighting disease. Virtually everyone has these built-up wastes in their colon, especially from eating processed foods.

Correcting the causes of improper elimination

The purpose of colon hydrotherapy is to clean and flush away-unwanted toxins, however; it will not fully correct its underlying causes.  Colon hydrotherapy only serves as the first step to healing.  Cleansing paired with nutritional support may help the colon return to its normal bowel functions.  Restoring power to the colon requires the body’s digestive wastes to be eliminated daily.  The best place to start and solve most irregular bowel functions requires these suggested products:  

Who needs colon hydrotherapy?
The need for colon cleansing has never been greater. Virtually everyone has built-up wastes in their colon. The American standard diet, with its use of preservatives, pesticides, herbicides, and hormonal food additives in its processed foods, prevent the natural process of elimination to happen. As unnatural foods move through the colon, fluid is absorbed during the digestive process, leaving very sticky waste. These wastes cling to the colon walls and rot, giving off toxins that the body has already rejected.

How does colon hydrotherapy work?

Colon hydrotherapy uses state-of-the-art equipment to gently introduce purified water into the colon. During a colon hydrotherapy session, warm filtered water is gently infused into the rectum and circulates throughout the colon, dissolving and removing its contents, while the client lies comfortably on a table. The pressure and temperature are controlled by a trained and experienced colon hydro-therapist.

Is colon hydrotherapy safe and sanitary?
Yes. As the method is an enclosed system, the waste is removed without unpleasant odors or discomfort. Closely monitored and regulated water temperature and fills and releases to aid in the peristaltic action of the colon. The professionally performed procedure preserves client privacy with use of private room.

Is colon hydrotherapy painful or dangerous?
Colon hydrotherapy is not painful or dangerous.  We carry an advanced top of the line machine, that facilitates a warm and comfortable hydrotherapy experience. Unlike other machines where the client must lie on their side for more than an hour, at Heather’s Holistic Health the client lies on their back. Other machines use tubes as large as a hose; however, our machine uses a tube that is as small as a pencil.

How many colon hydrotherapy sessions does a person need?
It takes a long time to build up the long-term wastes in your colon, so in order to remove them gently, it may take more than one session. A recommendation will be made by the colon hydro-therapist after the assessing the results of the first session. Results depend on a person's health condition, level of toxicity, and desire to improve.

Can colon hydrotherapy affect flora or electrolyte balance?

Good Flora does not usually accumulate in colons that have old wastes stuck to their walls. Colon hydrotherapy therefore washes out not only the bad flora, but the environment in which it grows. Then good flora has the ability to thrive in a clean environment. Colon Hydrotherapy has very little effect on the balance of electrolytes. The few that are lost are replaced by proper eating or the fresh juices that you might drink later.

For optimal results before the appointment:

Three days prior:

· Avoid red meat, white flour products, brown and white sugar, drinks with sugars, white rice, candy, potato chips. · Eat raw fruit, green leafy vegetable, and drink ½ gallon of water daily, herbal teas, and fresh/organic fruit and/or vegetable juice.
· Pair Medi-Clay FX with Aloe Detox. Aloe Detox loosens the toxins clinging to the colon wall. Medi-Clay FX is a supplement that acts like a magnet for the toxins in the colon to bind together. Both products work together to increase the amount of waste removed during the appointment. These products are sold in our supplements store.
