Reasons why Colonics is so Important:

Colon hydrotherapy is a holistic method used to remove waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.) pose several problems. Firstly, this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream making us feel ill, tired or weak.

Secondly, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. Finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation, which are the result of these disorders.

By relieving the body of toxic build-up, colon hydrotherapy can dramatically improve bowel function.

Whereas accumulated fecal matter promotes the growth of undesirable bacteria and their toxic by-products, a clean colon allows beneficial bacteria to proliferate. These beneficial bacteria manufacture important vitamins, including biotin, which is essential for the proper breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins and fats; cobalamin (vitamin B12), which promotes red blood cell formation and assists in the production of neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit nerve impulses); and vitamin K, a key factor in normal blood-clotting and in the development of healthy bone structure.

Beneficial bacteria also produces lactic acid, which creates an antagonistic environment for other types of unwelcome bacteria.

Toxic build-up in the colon not only upsets the balance of intestinal bacteria, it promotes mucus formation as a protective mechanism to “disable” toxic organisms. Waste and mucus become encrusted and adhere to the colon wall, preventing the proper transfer of vitamins and minerals into the body, and of waste and debris out of the body.

A congested colon can have adverse effects on other systems of elimination and detoxification, such as the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs and skin, as these attempt to cope with toxic excess. What results is a loss of energy and vitality which create symptoms that can ultimately degenerate into illness.

As the water enters the body and fills the space within the colon, it applies a gentle pressure against the muscles of the colon wall, provoking a contraction-like action called peristalsis. Peristalsis is the mechanism by which waste matter is propelled throughout the colon and ultimately excreted. Impacted fecal matter inhibits peristalsis, weakening the muscle tissue and distorting the size and shape of the colon.

In certain areas, waste matter will accumulate and stretch the colon wall, creating “pouches” which may become enlarged as they continue to trap waste. In other areas, the colon will spasm as the
muscles strain in an attempt to contract, creating a narrowing of the colon which restricts the passage of fecal waste. As the weight of accumulating waste increases, the colon droops and becomes displaced, resulting in what is called a prolapse.

While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people throughout history have experienced that when the colon is cleansed and healed, the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Although toxic material is found throughout the body, particularly in fat tissue, joints, arteries, muscles, and the liver, etc.

Colonics Benefits These Conditions:






Yeast infections (candida)

Intestinal parasites

Leaky gut syndrome

Irritable bowel

Remove accumulated waste from the colon

Prevent constipation

Improve overall health

When working with a skilled therapist, a colonic can be a truly enlightening and educational experience. You will learn to expand your awareness of your body’s functioning by listening to signals from your abdomen, skin, face and even from the most taboo of natural products, your eliminations. You will find you can spot the early developing conditions before they become serious through clues from the body regions and functions. You can deal with them sooner and more easily that you might otherwise if you waited until they produced effects seen elsewhere in body. For example, acne may be a signal of too much sugar in diet (Candida cleanse may be helpful).

Also, the solar plexus is the emotional centre of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left uncompleted, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus, which affects all organs of the areas including colon. This on-going tightening of the of the colon muscle results in diminished movement of fecal material through the colon, which is experienced as constipation. Not only do colonics alleviate the constipation, they assist you in recognizing and releasing the stored emotion causing the problem. In effect, colonics assist you in creating a fully holistic view of your body’s functioning, leading to a better quality of life.
