Colon Hydrotherapy - Gravity Flow System
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste
from the large intestines without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered & temperature, regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural colon movement.
Colon Hydrotherapy may help reduce the risk of bowel disease,
enabling better absorption of nutrients and lead to improved health
for a feeling of well-being and enhanced energy.
How is a Colonic Administered?
When receiving a colonic, clients lie on there left side on the therapy table 18" below the temperature-controlled input tank. A sterilized speculum is gently inserted into the rectum two inches. Water flow, which is always under the direct control of the therapist, flows into the colon via a small water tube & expelled through evacuation tube carrying impacted feces, toxins, mucous and gas. As the water flows out of the colon, the therapist gently massages the abdomen to help the colon release it contents. It is possible to see this expelled waste matter when it passes through viewing window in the evacuation tube. Clients are covered & modesty is given top priority during this short session.
Colon Health Affects Your Health
The colon is connected to the body through reflexes, as well as the feet, hands and ears. A clean colon promotes healthy organ too!
Diseased Colon and Results
Today we are exposed to more stress, lack of sleep, chemicals,
drugs and food additives. The removal of these toxins are essential to a healthy body function; a strong immune system able to fight
and eliminate disease. Your colon may be burdened with putrefying food, bacteria, viruses, indigestible foods and encrusted pockets of germinated waste. The evacuation of stool once a day can result in the re-absorption of 85% of bowel toxins. If this happens, the
colon may become saturated with harmful toxins, which leads to a process called "auto intoxication". This means that toxic substances can be transported into the bloodstream where the lymphatic, circulatory system, lungs and kidneys can become overburdened. When the body systems are unable to cope with the toxic overload, the body is exposed to serious health risks.
Constipation and the Effects:
The bodies tissues and glands are effected by
auto intoxication (self poisoning)
The chart below illustrates effects on the body
and impact on our well-being.
Poisons backed up into: Effects on theBody:
Nervous System Irritable, Depressed
Stomach Bloated, Nausea

Skin Wrinkled, Dark circles (eyes)
Constipation is one of the first signs indicating that your bowel is not functioning properly. When a person is constipated, the walls of the colon are crusted with accumulated fecal matter. The inner diameter of the colon is reduced like a water pipe blocked by mineral deposits and eventually the opening becomes more narrow. Since the encrusted feces line the colon walls, the colon is unable to absorb nutrients from our food in the last stage of the digestive process. The body reacts to this constricted bowel, by stepping up the frequency of the peristalsis wave action, to allow the waste to exit the body. Taken to its limit, the effects can cause diarrhea.
Several bowel movements a day can still result in constipation. The bowel movements are usually smaller and occur more often, because the diameter of the colon is smaller than it should be.
THESE ARE THE FOODS THAT CAUSE CONSTIPATION:
The bottom line is that the following foods are the highest top ten on the list for 'stopping you up'.
Meat (Especially Beef and Pork) - Slows down the digestive process terribly and consistently
Potatoes (All Kinds) - Too much starch
Cheeses (All Kinds) - Huge culprit
Fast Food (Hamburgers, Fries, Stuff like that) - Little nutrition, hard to help make the body work properly
Breads - Huge Culprit
Pasta - Huge Culprit
Corn - Too much starch
Pizza - Too much cheese
Milk - Too much mucus and solidifies inside the body
Heavy Sugar Products (Pies, Cakes, Cookies, etc) - Bogs down the system and creates really low energy, in the long term, not to mention weight problemsThe bottom line is that the following foods are the highest top ten on the list for 'stopping you up'.
How Many Colonics:
This depends on the individual and advice will be given at the end of the first consultation.
Often the waste is so hard & well lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to soften & loosen this accumulation of fecal matter. This is why a series of sessions necessary and advisable. Colon Hydrotherapy is most effective when employed in combination with exercise, water & proper diet of non-mucous producing foods.
How many colonics will I need?
If you have never had a colonic before, or if it has been a long time since you last had one, you will get the most out of it by doing a series of 3 or 4 in a one week or 10 day period. Depending on your individual situation and health goals, you may need more sessions. For example if you are trying to lose a substantial amount of weight you will want to do 10-12 sessions over 5 or 6 weeks (coming 2x a week). You will want to space the initial 3 sessions 1-5 days apart. The goal is to clean the whole colon. It is rare that this is achieved in a single session. On the first session, sometimes a lot of waste material comes out and sometimes not much at all. It just depends on several factors including your ability to relax, the condition of your health and colon, your diet and water intake to name a few. If you look at the colon picture further up on this page, the colon is highlighted in light blue. It is approximately 5.5 feet in length in most people.
Preparation before your colonics session:
1. Eat as many water content foods as possible prior to colonic.
Examples: raw & cooked green leafy vegetables, raw vegetables
drinks, whole grains and fruits. This will start moistening up the
colon for better elimination.
2. Try to cut down on all processed foods.
Examples: White flour products, cheese, dried foods, greasy
foods and sugar. These foods dehydrate the colon and make
3. You will need to not eat 2 hours prior or drink anything 1 hour

4. Stay away from gas-forming foods, carbonated drinks the day
before your appointment
Raw apples, Melons, Bananas, Beans, Broccoli, Cauliflower,
Cucumbers, Cabbage, Onions.
**Gas can hinder a good release during your colonics**
5. Increase your liquid intake ( water - herbal tea - juices ) this
will help the elimination process. A dehydrated colon will not
release the fecal matter. You haft to remember when you are
dehydrated the first place your body takes liquid from is your
colon. This will hinder the colonic session.
