Colonic Irrigation

Due to poor eating habits, emotional pressures, and living our modern lives, our bodies are now reservoirs for toxic waste. With our bodies functioning less and less at their optimum level, layers of mucoid matter is built up in the intestinal tracts. Eventually this may result in conditions that promote the loss of vitality, gas, bloating, Candida, poor skin and general overall fatigue. Old, stagnant waste in the intestines may block proper absorption and elimination of food in addition to being a breeding ground for harmful organisms and parasites. Statistics show that over 60% of the world’s population has worms and parasites in their intestinal tracts; these inhabitants may pollute blood, organs and lymph system, contributing to illness and degenerative diseases.

Earliest references to colonic hydrotherapy studied have lead to a primitive version of the therapy – an enema - contained in an Egyptian medical scroll called the Eber Papyrus and dated around 1,500 BC. In this version, patients sat in a stream and water was introduced into the bowel by using a hollow reed inserted into the rectum, the colonic irrigation system was developed.

When working with your practitioner, they will take you through a full consultation that will examine the reasons you are seeking treatment as well as identify any additional problem areas.

During the treatment itself you will be fully clothed, using a disposable gown, and a blanket will be placed over you to maintain your dignity. Initially you may feel a slight amount of pressure when the speculum is introduced (to approximately two inches). This is not a painful process although you might experience a slight feeling of discomfort for a few seconds. Once in place, you will be asked to lie on your back with your knees slightly bent.

During treatment you may feel slight pressure in the abdominal area, combined with a sensation of ‘butterflies’ when material is passed. With the system totally enclosed, noxious odors will not escape into the treatment room. Your practitioner will also use special massage techniques in the abdominal area to stimulate the release of unwanted matter. Many find this deeply relaxing, and at the end of the treatment, your practitioner will use a high potency, pro-biotic wash to replenish the positive bowel flora.

Following the treatment, you can carry on as normal.  In fact, many people have the procedure done during lunchtime. Following the initial treatment, it may be recommended that a follow up session be scheduled after a period of one to two weeks.
