I am passionate about the health benefits of colon hydrotherapy (also known as a "colonic"). Below are a list of questions many of my clients have asked. If you have any additional questions, I would love to answer them for you.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy (also known as a "Colonic") is a process of using purified, temperature regulated water to hydrate and remove built up impurities in the colon or large intestine. The process allows your bowel to function properly and more easily absorb vital nutrients.
HERE'S WHY I USE A GRAVITY COLON HYDROTHERAPY MACHINE.
After years of experience, I have chosen to use a highly sought after gravity hydrotherapy machine (I sold my loved vintage van to buy this baby because it's the best!). The gravity hydrotherapy machine ensures that water is slowly entered into the colon using gravity - rather than pressure. The gravity machine allows for my patients to experience a more comfortable colonic cleanse. The water is safely and gently infused into the colon via the rectum, gradually loosening built up material and gently stimulating the colon's natural contractions (AKA peristalsis) allowing for easy evacuations and overall improved function of the colon and digestive tract.
How long are colonic treatments?
Each patient and treatment are individualized and very personal; it depends on your body and how it responds. Generally, colonics take about one hour.
WHO BENEFITS FROM COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
In today's world, our bodies have taken in toxins; from environmental toxins such as smog, chemical cleaners, lead based paints and mold to internal built up toxins from additives, hormones, sugars present in most of our foods, prescription medications and stress. Gently cleaning your colon and bowels of these toxins is vital for your body to maintain its immune strength to protect you from diseases.
DOES COLON HYDROTHERAPY CLEAN THE SMALL INTESTINES AS WELL?
No, it does not. Colon hydrotherapy cleans and detoxifies the large intestine or colon only. There is a valve located near the cecum portion of the colon that separates the small from large intestine called the "Ileocecal Valve". When waste is ready to be dumped into the colon the valve opens, otherwise this valve remains closed. The slow rate at which the water is being filled during a session is not enough to force open the Ileocecal Valve.
DOES COLON HYDROTHERAPY HURT?
No. Colon hydrotherapy does not hurt. The sensations experienced during a session have been described as "weird" or "different" but it is not painful.
DOES COLON HYDROTHERAPY WIPE OUT THE GOOD BACTERIA IN YOUR COLON?
I use pure UV filtered water during your colon hydrotherapy. It does not deplete any of the bacteria your body needs. If you are concerned, I recommend an oral probiotic after your treatment.
Colonic Pre & Post Treatment Recommendations
DO I NEED TO PREPARE FOR MY FIRST COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT?
I suggest you try to avoid drinking or eating one hour prior to your colonic treatment. Additionally, you might want to avoid the ingestion of gassy foods or drinks for a day prior to your treatment. For example, try to avoid carbonated beverages, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, basically anything that might make you gassy. The presence of excessive gas during your session usually causes a bit more discomfort. Also, try to avoid the consumption of red meat, as it tends to slow the digestive system overall.
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING AFTER MY COLON HYDROTHERAPY TREATMENT?
Your colonic treatment will in no way impede upon the rest of your day as you will most likely not need to evacuate the rest of the day.
