What is a colonic irrigation?
A Colonic Irrigation using the gravitational method is an internal bath that helps cleanse the Colon of Poisons, Gas, and Accumulated Fecal Matter. Unlike an ENEMA, it does not involve the retention of water. There is NO discomfort, NO internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the Colon. At the same time, an Abdominal Massage is given to stimulate the Colon to recover its natural Shape, Tone, and Peristaltic Wave Action. No other system can equal this process.
How is a colonic administered?
A person receiving the Colonic lies on a Special Colema-Board which is about 32" below the Temperature-Controlled water flow. A Sterilized Speculum is gently inserted in the Rectum. Water flow, which is always under the control of the Practitioner, flows into the Colon via a small water tube and out through the evacuation tube carrying with it Impacted Feces and Mucous. As the water flows out of the Colon the Practitioner gently Massages the Abdomen to help the Colon release its contents. It is possible to see this Expelled Waste Matter in the catch basin at the end of the process. The person is well covered and their modesty is given TOP PRIORITY during the procedure. The Colonic process takes about 30 minutes.
How many colonics will you need?
The number of treatments required always varies with the individual and her/his prevailing condition. Often the waste is so hard and well loaded in the Colon that it may take a series of seven Colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this Accumulated Fecal Material. Some people may not have startling results for the first few treatments. That is why a series of at least three treatments is recommended as well as advisable.
You will be given instructions for proper exercise and diet of Non-Mucous producing foods. Fresh fruits, Vegetables and certain Herbs are suggested to help loosen and dissolve accumulated fecal matter. The suggested series of treatments would be two Colonics per week for seven weeks. Once the Colon is clean, it is advisable to have a Colonic quarterly during the following year. An easy way to remember is to have a Colonic at the changing of the Seasons when diet and exercise patterns change. You should have a Colonic before, during, and after any FASTING ACTIVITY to hasten removal of Toxic waste and it would also be beneficial during the cold and flu season.
What are the benefits?
Colonics offer relief from a variety of disturbances by cleansing the Colon of Impacted and Putrefactive Fecal Matter. Fatigue, Gas, Headaches, Irritability, Skin Problems, Cold Hands and Feet, Lethargy are among the problems people have found relieved by Colon Cleansing. Constipation, of course, is another as well as Chronic Diarrhea. Your sense of well-being is often dramatically improved with the Colonic Process or Colon Cleansing. You feel lighter, more energetic. The body can again assimilate food in the Colon and better defend itself against disease. Natural Peristalsis, Tone and Regularity are restored and many Serious Diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique. Colonics are a key factor in the restoration of the body's natural balance or what we call good health.
Are there side effects?
There are no side effects. It is not uncommon however, for some people to start to feel like they have a cold or headache after a Colonic. Toxins which have been lying dormant in the Colon are now being flushed out and a small amount may be Re-Absorbed into the body's system. This healing crisis passes quickly and the person will realize a feeling of well-being with further treatments.
Will colonics damage normal intestinal flora?
The normal intestinal flora will NOT be disturbed. One of the functions of the first half of the Colon is to gather the Intestinal Flora needed for the Colon. When the accumulation of feces in the bowel leads to Fecal Encrustation, it is difficult for the Colon to function normally and the glands in this lining cannot produce the necessary Intestinal Flora. The resulting lack of lubrication intensifies a state of constipation and generates Toxemia. This upsets the normal Acid-Alkaline balance and the growth of the Friendly Bacteria is stunted. Cleansing the Colon will help bring the Acid-Alkaline ratio back into balance. In this environment, the Friendly Bacteria will again thrive and disease causing bacteria will find it difficult to develop.
