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:
- The warm, filtered water will hydrate the colon resulting in a moistening of hard fecal material stagnant in the colon.
- This hydration will help the colon muscles activate resulting in the stimulation of peristalsis (muscle movement) in the colon.
- 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. Your house has a trash receptacle in the form of a trash can. The trash can should be emptied regularly or your house will stink. Additionally, the can should receive a periodic washing to remove waste which may have accumulated at the bottom or around the inside circumference of the can.
Your body should receive the same consideration. Your body has a trash receptacle in the form of a colon. The colon should be emptied regularly, preferably consistent with your daily meal regimen, or your body will stink. This odor could come from bad breath, unexplainable body odor or a pungent smelling sweat.
If you feel like your body’s colon is working JUST fine, REMEMBER the earlier example of your house trash can: Consider a periodic maintenance cleanse to release any debris which may have accumulated around the circumference of the colon walls, over the years, so you can support the continuance of optimal health.
9. Is a colonic the same as a colonoscopy?
A colonic and a colonoscopy are two very different procedures. A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the colon utilizing a colonoscope. This procedure is helpful in identifying any pre-cancerous situations or other unusual behavior within the colon.
A colonic is an internal cleansing of the colon utilizing warm, filtered water. Many clients use a colonic as a preparation for a colonoscopy procedure.
10. What is the difference between a colonic and an enema?
There are several differences between the two:
- A colonic can ultimately cleanse the entire length of the colon, while an enema cleanses the lower part of the colon (sigmoid) and a portion of the descending colon.
- Colonics provide multiple infusions of water into the colon, where enemas provide a gravity-flow of one or two water infusions into the colon.
- With a colonic, the fecal material leaves the body through a tube while the client continues to relax. During an enema, the client must reposition onto the toilet to release fecal material.
- During a colonic, clients can see the fecal material through a view tube as it is passing. This viewing is not possible with an enema.
- As the fecal material passes through a tube, odor is eliminated during a colonic. With enemas, the smell is present for all passing fecal material.
