Colon Cleansing/Hydration

What Is Colon Cleansing/Hydration?

Colon Cleansing/Hydration (also known as colonics, high enemas, or colon irrigation), is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session.

Colon Cleansing/Hydration is best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular cleansing practice.

Why Should I Be Concerned About My Colon?

The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about and most of us don't until our health becomes poor or we feel constipated or have diarrhea. It best benefits the body due to release of this accumulated congestion in the bowel.

Historical View

Historians tell us that the practice of Colon Cleansing/Hydration in its most basic form was first used by the Egyptians. The Ebers Papyrus, of the 14th century B.C., and the Edwin Smith Papyrus (c. 1700 B.C.), both mention enemas and give directions for the use of the enema.

The Essene Gospel of the third century stated, "The uncleanness within is greater than the uncleanness without. And he who cleanses himself without, but within remains unclean, is like a tomb that outward is painted fair, but is within full of all manner of horrible uncleannesses and abominations."

The 17th Century became known as the "age of the enema", or the "age of clysters". It was an acceptable practice in Parisian society to enjoy as many as three or four enemas a day, the belief being that an internal washing or "lavement" was essential to well-being.

By the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, with the advent of rubber, the enema or clyster slowly gave way to colon Cleansing/Hydration equipment which improved the cleansing of the colon.

Dr. Kellogg reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise.

Colon Cleansing/Hydration eventually gained the attention of James A. Wiltsie, M.D., who contended that "our knowledge of the normal and abnormal physiology of the colon, and of its pathology and management, has not kept pace with that of many organs and systems of the body." He went on to say, "As long as we continue to assume that the colon will take care of itself, just that long will we remain in complete ignorance of perhaps the most important source of ill health in the whole body."
 

How Many Colon Cleansing/Hydration Sessions Does One Need?

Of course, the number of Colon Cleansing/Hydration sessions desired will depend on the individual. Every person's goals will differ. Just as some people exercise on a daily or weekly basis to tone and tighten their outer body, some people follow an ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimen for the inner body. Colon Cleansing/Hydration could be used as part of any regular maintenance program.

What Is A Colon Cleansing/Hydration Session Like?

A session is a comfortable experience for many people. It produces no toxicity. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon gently 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 be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination.

During the session, most clothing can be kept on and you will be draped, or a gown might be worn to ensure modesty. Your dignity is always maintained.

Sanitation

Modern Colon Cleansing/Hydration equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. The FDA-registered equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and/or water purification unit. Disposable single-use rectal tubes, and/or speculae are highly recommended.

Colon Cleansing/Hydration Client & Hydrotherapist Population

It is estimated that there are many hundreds of colon hydrotherapists in the United States assisting hundreds of thousands of clients to enjoy the benefits of Colon Cleansing/Hydration. Many of these clients claim that due to Colon Cleansing/Hydration, they have been able to live their lives without drugs, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants, and pain pills. In a society where Eastern and Western medicine combined to give us the best of both worlds, the acceptance of Colon Cleansing/Hydration has continued to grow with impressive results.

The following are a few of the reasons many people seek to include Colon Cleansing/Hydration as part of their total health regimen:

Health conscious individuals use colon cleansing/hydration during a period of life-style change or as preventative measures.

Some individuals use colon cleansing/hydration to begin to break poor and non-life supportive habits

Some people have found colon cleansing/hydration helpful when manifesting symptoms of intestinal distress.

A number come in during a fast (cleansing program) - A raw food diet and/or gall bladder flush encourage a more thorough cleansing of the intestines.

Some are working on releasing emotional or spiritual issues which they feel are physiologically rooted in their intestines.

Colon Cleansing/Hydration sessions have been used in preparation for diagnostic studies (colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy), pre- and post- surgery or barium x-ray, stool samples and geriatric cases.
