Colon Therapy is the safe, gentle use of warm filtered water introduced into the colon to hydrate, stimulate and evacuate waste from the body. It is a wonderful adjunct therapy to assist with achieving optimal health. This article is a helpful tool for individuals wanting to learn truthful information about colon therapy.

1. What is Holistic Health?

Holistic health is an approach to healing by treating the whole body versus one particular part. The holistic treatment is designed to complement the entire body unit and to achieve optimal health.

2. What is Colon Therapy?

Colon Therapy (also known as Colon Hydrotherapy or Colonic Irrigation) is an internal bath which removes waste from the body by introducing warm, filtered water into the colon. The filtered water will soften and loosen fecal material, resulting in waste evacuation through the natural peristalsis of the colon.

3. What are the benefits of having a colon therapy session?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle washing of the colon. The experience of a colonic will have three positive effects:

  1. The warm, filtered water will hydrate the colon resulting in a moistening of hard fecal material stagnant in the colon.
  2. This hydration will help the colon muscles activate resulting in the stimulation of peristalsis (muscle movement) in the colon.
  3. The combination of hydration and stimulation of peristalsis improves the evacuation of fecal material “stuck” inside the colon.

4. Is having a colon therapy session sanitary?

Yes. At my practice, Lifetime Health & Consulting, LLC, the colonic is performed with a Clearwater, FDA-registered, PPC-101 – The Traveler (U. S. Patent No. 5,871,463) colon therapy device. The instrument is designed for use in a variety of situations to include hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and more.

The instrument is a closed system that avoids offensive odors and leakage. It employs a disposable, single-use, two-tube speculum, an adjustable, temperature-controlled shut off valve, and a water pressure regulator/relief system. Furthermore, the unit is sterilized after each session with an EPA approved and hospital grade Cavicide solution. Lastly, The Traveler connections are in compliance with city water and sewage commission standards to prevent back-flow issues.

5. What will happen during a colon therapy session?

A colonic session is like taking a warm, relaxing, internal whirlpool bath. It is a comfortable experience for most people. At the onset of the session you will disrobe from the waist down. Depending on your colon therapy office, a gown, towel or sheet is worn to ensure modesty. After reclining on a padded table, you will experience the gentle, self-insertion of a speculum into the rectum. A small amount of temperature-controlled and pressure-regulated, filtered water enters the colon via the inflow tube while the instrument gauge monitors the pressure inside the colon. The water softens and loosens fecal material which stimulates the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release waste. Upon release, fecal matter is expelled through the observation tube via the outflow tube. This process is repeated several times within a 45-50 minute session.

6. How long is the colon therapy session?

The typical initial visit is a 90-minute session to include a.5 hour consultation. At completion of the consultation, the client will spend 45 – 50 minutes on the colon therapy table undergoing the colonic session. The remaining 10 – 15 minutes is spent talking about your session and how you would like to move forward. Subsequently, follow-up visits are typically 60 minutes from start to completion.

7. How many colon therapy sessions do I need?

The number of colon therapy sessions desired is discussed between the client and practitioner. Ultimately, the client has final say. This number is influenced by the individual’s personal colon health goals. For example, think of a colonic as an exercise regimen. Your goal may include weight loss and muscle training prompting you to exercise one time per week until desired results are achieved. Another person’s goal may only include maintenance prompting exercise only one time per month on a continual basis. Colon therapy can complement any regimen or program.

8. Why should I take interest in this procedure? My body is working just fine.

To answer this question, I will compare your body to your house. Your body represents your house. …

Most of us didn’t learn a doggone thing in school that was in-sync with everyday living, especially when it comes to life and health. And you ask why? It’s because it just wasn’t taught. Period.

Somewhere, a long time ago, some NON-visionary individual implemented a lifetime of subjects, that MOST people NEVER use, threw them into dull, un-imaginary classes, and called it school (Sidenote: We actually ONLY needed a few of these subjects, really).

In someone’s estimation, this was WAY more significant than teaching us ‘how to think by using our OWN creative intelligence and how to take proper care of our bodies. So, here we are just starting to “catch on” to what’s REALLY important!

I said ALL OF THAT, to say this, “Who ever informed you how important it really Is to keep your colon clean and protected from disease?” And I already know the answer. NOBODY!

Our colons are basically the most important part of our entire digestive system. This is where DISEASE BEGINS, if it isn’t taken care of properly.

According to Health Line, your colon is responsible for absorbing the body’s nutrients and minerals, and absorbing the body’s water. It also eliminates the waste. In other words, the colon takes out the body’s garbage.

Your digestive system is your colon, your mouth, your esophagus, your stomach, and your small and large intestine. They’re all connected.

If any part of your digestive system doesn’t work properly, it means HUGE problems for you, all the way from CONSTIPATION through DIARRHEA, and everything in between.

Most people don’t ‘give a hoot’ about their colons, until they get sick. However, according to Health Line, again, colon issues can include Leaky Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, Diverticulitis, Ulcers and Colon Cancer, to name a few. People who already have some of these diseases could give you an earful of what they go through everyday. You don’t have to let this be you!

So, if you have any colon or digestive issues, listen up! Now’s your time to be educated and to be more aware of keeping your colon and digestive system safe. It’s your INTERNAL INSURANCE POLICY that will keep you out of doctor’s offices and hospitals for years to come.

GREAT COLON STORY FROM THE COLON WHISPERER:

Why is the colon so important? by Toni Schumacher Lund

One day the body got together and decided to have a board meeting. Here’s what went on behind closed doors. There was intense discussion to determine:

WHO WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BODY.

The BRAIN was the first to speak. “Without me, nothing would be accomplished.”

Then the HEART spoke up. “Without me, pumping blood to your brain you could not function.”

The ARMS laughed. “You’re both wrong, without me to put food in the mouth, nothing would work.”

The LEGS quickly added. “Without me you couldn’t get your food”

The STOMACH said, “Without me, your food would not digest.”

The LUNGS bellowed back, “Without me, you couldn’t breathe.”

The EYES blinked, “Without me you could not see.”

The KIDNEYS snorted, “Without me, you could not detoxify and eliminate.”

The COLON meekly spoke up. “I am important. You need me to eliminate all of the garbage from your systems.”

Everyone laughed and made fun of him. “How can you be as important as we are. You’re just a smelly old sewer.”

The poor colon… his feelings were hurt. He turned away, and thought, I’ll show them. HE SHUT DOWN!! Then he sat back and watched what would happen.

The BRAIN was stupefied.

The HEART’S beat was weak.

The ARMS and LEGS were weak and couldn’t move.

The LUNGS breathing was shallow.

The EYES became cloudy.

The KIDNEYS quit.

Then the COLON looked around and decided it was time to call another meeting.

It wasn’t too lively this time, but everyone was in total agreement.

The COLON WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN.

The first thing to emphasize is that I’m not a medical professional and I’m not giving medical advice about any specific condition. Please consult your doctor or other health professional for medical advice.

In terms of juicing for colon health I can only say what worked for me in my own search for health. I did not approach this from the angle of trying to cure a disease but instead attempting to gain vibrant health and letting everything else take care of itself.

I juiced twice per day and consumed the equivalent of 4 pints of green juice, 2 pints in the morning and 2 pints at lunchtime.

Although I wanted to juice cleanse specifically for colon health, I also wanted to juice for optimal kidney, liver and immune system health. The outcome is that rather than specifically focusing on the colon, you are in fact taking an all of body or holistic approach.

My favorite recipe for a Colon Cleanse is:-

1 lemon

1 small to medium chunk of Ginger root

1 small chunk of turmeric

½ large cucumber

6 to 7 celery stalks

2 apples

1 fennel bulb

Why did I choose these ingredients?

All of these ingredients have massive health benefits when juiced.

Lemon is the ultimate superfood and it also tastes great.

Ginger and Turmeric have well documented anti-inflammatory properties and ginger gives the juice a fantastic kick to it.

Celery and cucumber are packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are very healing and hydrating.

Apples are another superfood, have many health benefits and sweeten the juice giving it a great taste.

Fennel – has many health benefits and it great for colon health.

If you don’t have all of the ingredients, it doesn’t matter. Just the fact that you are juicing at all puts you on a path to improving your health.

Feel free to substitute new ingredients in as you see fit. For example leafy green vegetables like Kale and spinach are fantastic if your juicer can handle them as well as carrots and pears

You may wish to go easy to start wish, especially if you are moving from an unhealthy diet to a healthier one that includes juicing.

What does green juice do to your body?

When you green juice, the nutrients are immediately absorbed into bloodstream and your body is saves considerable energy during the digestion process. Green juice also starts the detox, so toxins will be expelled from body.

You may feel some detox symptoms such as headaches, flu-like symptoms and tiredness. This is normal and may vary in intensity depending on a number of factors such as how poor your lifestyle was beforehand and how hard you detox.

You may need to rest a bit more to deal with these symptoms but go with it, the result is worth it.

Other by-products of juicing for health are likely to be weight loss, increased energy, vitality and mental focus.

Juicing is worth it. Keep with it and you will feel the difference and hopefully the result will be a better version of yourself.
