"Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and tissues. It is the bowel that must be cared for first.Sickness and disease respond more effectively and faster to treatment when bowel irrigation is done first."

Colonic Irrigation/Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon cleansing can provide relief from maladies such as colds & flu, constipation, diarrhea, breath and body odors, fatigue, headaches, sinusitis, allergies, hemorrhoids, weight problems, digestive difficulties, back and muscle aches, knee pain, poor eyesight, poor memory, stress, and the list goes on and on. We cannot expect to have sharp minds or vitality for living when our bodies are polluted. People report greater alertness, a lightness of being, mental clarity, overwhelming joy, incredible insight, and even better sex after cleansing.

The colon is like a tube of circular muscle lined with a layer of moist mucous cells that lubricate the contents. The smooth folds of the colon are speckled with glands that resemble skin pores. These glands extract the fluids and electrolytes from the passing food residue. This fluid - about a quart each day - is recycled and eventually filtered and excreted by the kidneys as urine. Bowel movement is a bit slower process, it comes in large waves three or four times per day. Stimulated by the arrival of food to the stomach, the muscle bands of the colon move the contents along through each section. Once the stool moves out of the sigmoid colon into the rectum, the brain gets the signal that nature is calling, and so we go.Do you look and feel older than you are? Do you know that colon cleansing (also known as colonic, bowel irrigation, high enema, and colenema) improves skin and muscle tone, and reduces signs of aging? Is your waistline getting bigger every year no matter how much you exercise? Are you tired of being overweight? Are your joints stiff, weak or painful? Do you suffer from arthritis?
Colon cleansing can relieve aches and pains and their causes! Is your pleasure for living gone? Eliminate moodiness and fatigue and start enjoying increased energy! Colon cleansing or bowel irrigation promotes optimum food absorption and improved peristaltic action by removing old mucoid accumulation and toxins.
Colon irrigation is an alternative health hydrotherapy that gradually and gently cleanses the colon by flushing with a warm water solution. Colon cleansing is preventative healthcare, there is no better place to begin to rid your body of toxins and contamination that may cause cancer, colitis, digestive disorders, fatigue, obesity, and so much more.
Difficulties controlling weight may be due to the excess garbage piled up in the colon. Did you know you can actually control or lose weight by removing the toxic build-up from your colon? Did you know the average weight loss after a single colon cleansing treatment is 2 - 4 pounds?
Has that ever happened to you? Everyone at one time or another experiences constipation. If you have chronic constipation or don't feel finished when you've finished the job, you need colon cleansing. Common sense and science tell us that prolonged retention of feces and stale waste matter in the colon may, and often does, result in blockage of the passage within the colon causing all kinds of disease. A plaster-like coating can form on the walls of the colon. Colon irrigation can and will dissolve this, but to remove it too rapidly could cause the inner lining of the colon to become raw. The best approach is to gradually, comfortably, and effectively soak and saturate the colon with water. It takes years to create blockage and build-up to the inside walls of the colon so it may take a series of bowel irrigations (maybe dozens) to cleanse thoroughly. Once you can appreciate increased energy, lightness of being, and the overall healthful feeling that bowel irrigation provides, you'll want to maintain a regular schedule to stay healthy, look younger and feel great!
Most of us judge colon health by the frequency and type of bowel movements we experience. Many in the orthodox medical field of study believe that individual rates of peristaltic action differ widely. A perfectly normal rate of bowel movement can vary anywhere from three times a day to three times a week depending on who you ask. Some say that we ought not to expect our bowels to operate exactly the same two days in a row. On the other hand, most alternative, naturopathic, homeopathic or wholistically-minded folks believe that a healthy colon will have good evacuation two to three times within 24 hours. Some also believe that bowel movement should occur like clockwork, aiding and abetting nutritional cycles. For the better part of this century, naturalistic healers have believed that the indigestible portion of the food we eat lodges in the large intestine and stays there until eliminated in a bowel movement. Therefore, infrequent movements or periods of constipation (especially those extending beyond 72 hours) can result in only a partial decomposition of waste, which can encrust the colon walls and hinder elimination. The toxins from this fecal matter are then reabsorbed into the body through the bloodstream, lowering the body's defenses against every bacteria, virus, and disease imaginable.
Colon health is a topic of lasting human interest and has been since antiquity. The reason people don't like to talk openly about colon cancer or even colon health, is probably because of the body parts involved--the rectum and the anus. Statistics being what they are, the sooner we address the issue and start monitoring our own colons, the better. Colon cancer is killing people at an alarming rate. The ancient Egyptians knew that food was the source of all illness and purged themselves regularly. Today, over 90% of Americans are walking around with clogged colons (US Health Service). At the turn of the last century, diverticulitis was unheard of. The cliche "you are what you eat" is unconditionally true and all the more reason to cleanse and detox the body. Dr. Bernard Jensen defined autointoxication as "the poisoning of the body, or some part of the body, by toxic matter generated therein." Autointoxication is self-poisoning, or slow suicide. Through detoxification, proper nutrition, and administration of supplements, the body can heal itself and maintain optimum health function.
(A word about Colonics from Dr. Bernard Jensen)
Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, famous surgeon and the father of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, believed that the bowel could be the origin of most health problems, hence his creation of a bran cereal to aid in colon function. He maintained that 90% of disease is due to improper functioning of the colon. After performing over 20,000 colon surgeries, Dr. Kellogg said he never did see a normal healthy American colon. Common sense tells us that if we retain the contents of our colon the result will be disfigurement and disease of the colon. Since newly formed cancer cells escape destruction by the immune system due to the effects of autointoxication, we are literally poisoning ourselves into illness when the bowel evacuation is deficient.
According to Dr. Norman Walker, author of Colon Health, "The very best of diets can be no better than the very worst, if the sewage system of the colon is clogged with a collection of waste and corruption." And, ". . . constipation is derived from the Latin word "constipatus," which translated means "to press or crowd together, to pack, to cram." Dr. Walker also said, "There are two crimes against Nature that civilization indulges, 1) constipation, and 2) eating devitalized and refined foods."
Unlike the small intestine with all its loops and folds, the large intestine (the colon), is a relatively simple structure. It begins on the right side of the body (approximately near the appendix), and continues up the right side of the abdomen; that's the ascending colon. Then, it makes a left hand turn at the liver and travels across the body over the stomach; that's the transverse colon; and makes another turn at the spleen descending on the left side; which is the descending colon. In one final loop (at the sigmoid colon), it all ends at the rectum. It's important to know that massaging during a bowel irrigation is beneficial and helps to dislodge sluggish or retained mass.
