Colon Hydrotherapy/Colonic

Colonic

What?

Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle, effective method of using purified water, under regulated temperature, to help with the removal of waste remaining in the colon, eliminating the accumulation of toxin and waste and encouraging the large intestine to carry out its natural peristaltic action, and therefore promoting a clean, healthy body.

Why?

A toxic colon is a major factor in the development of food intolerance leading to chronic ill health. You cannot expect to be well if the main organ responsible for ridding the body of toxic waste is under-functioning. When the colon is irritated by diet, stress, drugs, chemicals, and other substances, it tries to protect itself by producing more mucus. This additional mucus can bind with the sludge from refined foods, such as white flour, and build up on the wall of the bowel, narrowing the lumen. This layer of gluey, hardened feces can weigh several pounds and is a good place for harmful organisms to breed.

Do not think because you have regular bowel movements, or even diarrhea, that you have escaped this problem. The stool can pass daily through a dirty colon and leave the accumulated residue on the walls behind. There is no need to get panicky about the amount of weighty garbage you might be carrying around with you: there is a great deal you can do about it.

Benefits?

Colon cleansing is the first step on the road to recovery. When you have cleansed your colon and restored the balance of the good and bad bacteria, when you have adequate production of enzymes and your dietary intake and internal production of vitamins is correct, our food intolerance should greatly improve or disappear.

The benefits of colon cleansing are many, not only in terms of health, but also as it relate to appearance: the skin looks vibrant; cellulite, water retention, and blemishes disappear; and the whites of the eyes regain a youthful clearness. How quickly you want to clean out your colon is your choice. Some people are so tired of being under par, they are willing to endure the effects of rapid cleansing. Possible side effects from this procedure include migraine headaches, blinding headaches, nausea or flu, aches and pains, fever, exhaustion, and nervous symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks, irritability, weepiness, and even profound depression.

How?

Most people think of colon hydrotherapy or colonic irrigation as a nightmarish experience. It is far from this. In fact, it is a very quick and efficient way to loosen impacted feces and wash away toxins. It also obviates many of the unpleasant symptoms of detoxification. Here’s what happens:

Colon Hydrotherapy is a comfortable experience for most people. The procedure involves a soothing flow of purified, temperature-regulated water, inserted gently into the colon through a thin rectal tube, stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may occur several times during a session. The removal of waste encourages better colon function and excretion.

The Procedure?

Before each treatment, center’s consultant will makes arrangement for each client to meet with resident doctor, who are able to provide the relevant information and answer any health-related questions or concerns. Resident doctor also conducts a thorough physical examination and take blood pressure measurements in order to ensure that each client is physically able to undergo treatments.

During your session at HydroHealth, a certified and experienced colon hydrotherapist will assist you in the comfort of a private room. The therapist will adjust the temperature and regulate the flow of purified water into your colon to ensure a comfortable excretion of waste. The specially designed bed allows you to easily insert a lubricated thin rectal tube by yourself. You will be checked frequently by the therapist throughout the session, who will also gently massage your lower abdomen to aid the release of waste

At the end of the procedure, Bifidus (friendly bacteria) or Acidophilus will be given orally or through rectal infusion to maintain the balance of healthy elements in your body. The whole session lasts approximately 40 minutes. Our therapists aim to make your session relaxing, private and dignified.

Purification of cleansing water

The water used for the therapy undergoes as much as five purification processes. This purified water is also known as RO water and is processed through imported U.S. Reverse Osmosis water treatment plant, which produces kidney dialysis grade water of the purest quality. And as a result, clients can be relieved of any worries about the quality of the water used for a detoxification session – the water is 100% pure and natural.

How Long Does It Take to Clean the Colon?

It is unlikely that you will have a cleansed colon within a couple of weeks: it could take months. You will know when things are happening: your skin and eyes will look clearer, your digestion will improve, you will have more energy, and nagging aches and pains that have been around for years will disappear. You could feel mentally better too, clear-headed, and less jumpy.

CONTRAINDICATION

Conditions such as active infections, active inflammation (such as diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), a painful fissure or painful haemorrhoids mean treatment cannot be comfortably carried out until they are healed or in remission.

Diseases such as congestive heart disease, severe uncontrolled hypertension, severe anaemia, liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, severe haemorrhaging and colo-rectal carcinoma are also absolute contra-indications for treatment as are some physical conditions such as severe abdominal or inguinal hernias which cannot be easily reduced.Treatments are also not performed during the first three months of pregnancy, and not at all during complicated pregnancies.

Colonic irrigation, coupled with other suitable measures, is also useful during:
  • Cleansing regimes
  • Fasting
  • Liver/gall flushes
  • Weight loss program

Liver Flush

What is liver flush?

It is designed to cleanse the liver of toxin, fat and sludge and to flush out the “stones” of fatty and calcified deposits that we call gallstones. The longer the bile remains in the gallbladder the thicker this bitter, greenish liquid becomes and the greater the likelihood of stones forming. These stones also form when too little bile is produced. They in turn decrease the ability of the liver to make bile and as a result, less cholesterol and toxins are removed from the body.

Why flush?

It is the job of the liver to make bile, 1 to 1.5 quarts in a day! The liver is full of tubes (biliary tubing) that deliver the bile to one large tube (the common bile duct). The gallbladder is attached to the common bile duct and acts as a storage reservoir. Eating fat or protein triggers the gallbladder to squeeze itself empty after about twenty minutes, and the stored bile finishes its trip down the common bile duct to the intestine.

As the stones grow and become more numerous the backpressure on the liver causes it to make less bile. Imagine the situation if your garden hose had marbles in it. Much less water would flow, which in turn would decrease the ability of the hose to squirt out the marbles. With gallstones, much less cholesterol leaves the body and cholesterol levels rise.

Gallstones, being porous, can pick up all the bacteria, cysts, viruses and parasites that are passing through the liver. In this way “nests” of infection are formed, forever supplying the body with fresh bacteria. No stomach infection such as ulcers or intestinal bloating can be cured permanently without removing these gallstones from the liver.

Benefits of liver flush

Cleansing the liver of gallstones

  • Dramatically improves digestion
  • Allergies will gone
  • Eliminates shoulder, upper arm, and upper back pain.
  • More energy and increased sense of well being.

Preparation for Liver Flush

Before
And ideally the liver flush requires dietary preparation for 5 days in advance (optional)

  1. For 5 days prior to the “Flush” consume as much apple juice or cider as the appetite permits, in addition to regular meals. Nutritional supplements should also be taken during this time.
  2. For the last two days (day 4 and 5) try to
    – Eat only or mostly raw foods and drink eight to ten glasses of freshly apple juice (fresh fruits and vegetables are ok in addition to the apple juice). The malic acid found in the apple juice dissolves and softens gallstones, which makes for a successful Liver Flush. Fresh apple juice made from organic apples is best.
    – Drink at least eight glasses of water daily.
    This cleansing regimen facilitates the procedure and lessens the chance of a bad reaction, such as nausea or vomiting. If you are nervous about doing it, you probably shouldn’t. Again, attitude and confidence are important.

On the flush day

  1. Take no medicines, vitamins or pills that you can do without; they can prevent success.
  2. Eat a no-fat breakfast and lunch such a cooked cereal with fruit, fruit juice, bread and preserves or honey (no butter or milk), baked potato or other vegetables with salt only. This allows the bile to build up and develop pressure
    in the liver. Higher pressure pushes out more stones.

**Perform the liver flush on a weekend when you have time to keep to the protocol, to rest and to get to the bathroom quickly when necessary. Get up bright and early, go for a long walk and do deep breathing exercises to oxygenate the tissues and relax any tension. Continue to drink water throughout the day.

Cleanse your liver twice a year
