Frequently Asked Questions
Can I work directly after having a colon hydrotherapy treatment?
Certainly. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement.
How much does a treatment cost, and how long does a treatment take?
The cost of a treatment is $65.00. The procedure is about 45 minutes, but you should plan a total visit of one hour in duration.
What should I do to prepare for a colon hydrotherapy treatment?
We ask that you do a few simple things, do not eat anything 2 hours before your treatment, and drink plenty of fluids to keep your colon hydrated. While you are having your treatment we ask you to be relaxed as possible and maintain a positive cheerful attitude.
Do treatments hurt?
No. In fact many people report their colon hydrotherapy sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.
Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colon hydrotherapy
session have any effect on the visit?
No, in fact it’s usually a good time to receive a treatment, since your body is already cleansing. Your flow has no effect on the success of the treatment.
What is the colon?
The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract. The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 ½ inches in diameter. The major function is to eliminate waste and to conserve water. Also, there are bacteria living in the colon which synthesize valuable nutrients such as vitamin “K” and portions of the “B” complex.
How do the intestines get out of shape?
Everything we put in our mouth touches and effects the walls of the stomach, small intestine, and colon (large intestine). When these substances, or their by-products are toxic, they damage the intestinal wall and cells; intoxicate the nerves and glands; and can be absorbed through the walls into the blood and lymph and ultimately to the cells and tissue.
As a result, peristalsis declines. The slower transit increases fermentation and putrefaction of undigested food by bacteria and yeast. The bacteria and yeast give off toxic wastes in the form of acids and gasses. These substances also cause inflammation and damage to the cells of the intestinal walls. Research indicates these substances can create abnormal behavior and abnormal brain behavior. The nervous system is directly affected.
Elimination becomes incomplete and waste remains in the intestines. Dehydration and stagnation occur. This matrix creates erratic condition in the body we call disease. The main dietary offenders are animal products, salt, sugar, flour, chemicals, and drugs. They are lifestyles and give no energy to the digestive system.
How is the lymph system related to the intestines?
The lymph system is part of the circulatory system and a major organ of the immune system. Its clear-to-white fluid is composed of many different types of white blood cells and other substances. One of its main jobs is to transports nutrients from the blood to each cell and removes its waste. Some of the waste is transported to the intestines via the lacteals, that part of the lymph system which empties into the small intestines. It then passes into the large intestine for elimination.
When the intestinal walls are impacted, the lymph system retains the cell waste. The prolific number of lymph nodes in the abdominal region becomes storage points for the waste. Lymphatic fluid becomes thicker and if accompanied with dehydration sets the stage for an impaired immune system. Keep the lymph highly fluid by focusing on daily fluid intake, diet, and exercise.
What is constipation?
Constipation is any form of congestion and is usually accompanied by dehydration. It extends to the cellular level. One bowel movement a day is a sign of constipation and incomplete elimination is a form of constipation. Symptoms are overweight, fatigue, irritability, mental confusion, bloat, gas, indigestion, lethargy, headaches, migraines, earaches, sinus drainage, allergies, cellulite, anxiety, depression, pessimism, whining, unsatisfied hunger, poor circulation. Have I named a familiar problem yet!
A colon hydrotherapy session begins to hydrate the system and break up the impacted and dehydrated fecal, mucous, and other waste materials that layer the walls of the intestine. Once again, the intestines are capable of receiving and disposing of waste from the body, stopping the backup and re-absorption of toxic materials. Assimilation of nutrients improves. The liver and kidneys are relieved.
How do I restore my intestinal health?
Hydrate, dissolve, disinfect, soothe, and tone intestinal tissue. The colon hydrotherapy sessions with water and abdominal massage break up this matter within the small and large intestines with excellent results. People attain the most success with colon hydrotherapy when done in conjunction with fluids, exercise and diet.
What if I am unable to release during the first colonic?
Many people come in for the first time and expect the colonic to instantly release all waste from their large intestine or colon. When it doesn’t happen, some clients say, “Why should I come back if nothing came out the first time, I’m empty, it’s not really that effective.” When nothing come out, it is a more difficult case. The ability or inability to release is one of the ways to assess a colonic session.
The first job is to get the gut muscles to respond by creating what we call a “flow through”. “Flow through” is the ability of the person to eliminate or have material flow through their alimentary tract from mouth to anus without restriction. Dehydration could be a reason for a difficult first cleanse. If a client states they drink one quart or less of fluid daily, we know that the colon is probably dehydrated. The lack of fluid allows hardening of waste in the gut. Dehydration may also affect the quality of intestinal muscle tissue and its ability to expand and contract properly.
Another cause is what we call the peanut butter effect. Some low fiber diets and likely combined with insufficient fluids can create a very sticky and thick elimination that gets stuck in the intestines not to mention the speculum. If this may be suspected, you can prepare before the first session by; drinking a gallon of fluids daily, making fruits and vegetables 50% of your diet. This is volunteering on your part, it is not necessary, but is helpful to have your first colonic more successful.
