Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHAT IS THE COLON AND WHY IS A HEALTHY COLON SO IMPORTANT?
The colon is the last five feet of the digestive tract or large intestine. It is a hollow tube like organ made up of muscle structure that moves waste along by a wavelike motion known as peristalsis. The primary function of the colon is to absorb water, electrolytes and some vitamins, as well as preparing and storing fecal waste prior to elimination.
The colon, along with the skin, kidneys lungs and lymphatic system is a major organ of elimination of toxins and waste. If bowel movements are not regular, the waste products and toxins accumulate and can compromise our health. Good health is as much a function of our elimination status as the quality of the food we eat. Consider that over 400 million dollars are spent annually on laxatives in the United States.
Every year 140,000 Americans are diagnosed as having colon-rectal cancer which is the # 2 killer after heart disease. Of this population, 44% will die as a result of the disease. At least two million Americans suffer from colitis, ileitis, diverticulitis and 100,000 Americans have a colostomy each year.
Periodic cleansing of the colon could prevent stagnation and minimize the exposure to potential cancer causing agents to the colon wall.
2. WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and effective method for cleansing the entire colon. It also tones the peristaltic muscles allowing easier, more efficient elimination after your sessions are completed. Colon Hydrotherapy is also called colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy or high enemas. Regardless of the name, they all refer to the use of water for internal cleansing of the colon (large intestine), without the use of drugs or chemicals.
3. WHAT EXACTLY DOES COLON HYDROTHERAPY ACCOMPLISH?
Colon hydrotherapy is a process of removing fecal material and toxins from the colon and diluting the bacteria and toxic concentrations in the large intestine (colon). The therapeutic effects are: improved muscle tone which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients, while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. Renewed energy and connection to self are also reported by clients.
4. HOW DOES A PERSON KNOW IF THEY NEED COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Everyone can benefit from some internal cleansing. Everyday our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Our modern life style has taken its toll on our digestive and elimination organs. Refined, processed, low fiber foods, animal fats, a lack of exercise and ever increasing levels of stress all contribute to our current gastro-intestinal health crisis.
When waste and toxins can be eliminated from the body there is no problem. But when these build up faster than they can be eliminated, or when the elimination systems are under active, these toxins accumulate and create the necessary preconditions for disease in the body.
Just as cleaning your teeth prevents gum disease and promotes dental health, so cleaning the colon of its accumulated waste help to prevent the common diseases.
5. WHAT IS AUTO-INTOXIFICATION?
When we do not eliminate our waste, toxins circulate in our blood and can create auto-intoxification or self-poisoning. This occurs when the colon wall become weak and undigested food begins to enter the bloodstream. Old accumulated matter in the colon provides a breeding ground for unhealthy bacteria. This affects all of our bodily cells, tissues and organs. This lowers overall performance of our bodily functions and sets the stage for serious health problems.
6. WHAT ARE THE COMMON SYMPTOMS OF INTESTINAL TOXICITY?
Fatigue; constipation; excess weight; stomach bloat; gas; bad breath; coated tongue; body odor; skin problem; lower back pain; depression; poor memory; weakened immune system; feeling of lethargy and many more. If any of these symptoms sound familiar, colon hydrotherapy and detoxification would be of great benefit.
7. WILL LAXATIVES OR ENEMAS ACCOMPLISH THE SAME RESULTS AS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Laxatives are considered to be an irritant and stimulant to the colon. They draw water from the body and produce a thin watery substance that clears only the most recently digested waste from the colon and leaves behind the impacted waste on the colon walls. Enemas are fine to clean out the lower part of the rectum and colon, but miss about four feet of colon.
8. HOW IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY DIFFERENT?
Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle infusion of water in and out of the colon, reaching all four to five feet, allowing waste to be removed. With an experienced colon therapist, additional waste can be eliminated by specific breathing techniques or massaging the abdomen gently.
9. WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body with the reversal of a wide variety of health conditions, known to stem from improper diet, ineffectual elimination habits and stress. Colon hydrotherapy should be considered a preventive and health enhancement alternative also.
10. WHAT IS CONSTIPATION?
The medical dictionary defines this condition as difficult or infrequent passage of feces … or it can refer to the hardness of the stool. Those who agree with the natural approaches believe a state of constipation can also exist when the bowel movement appears normal in spite of accumulations of waste along the colon. So what is normal?
If you go to the bathroom once a day or once every two or three days … it may be considered normal … but it is not healthy. Consider for instance, that babies eliminate shortly after each meal. Their new digestive systems have not had the time to develop problems caused by improper diets, environmental toxins and stress.
If you are eating three meals a day and are eliminating only once, it is prudent to ask yourself where the other two meals are hiding.
11. WHAT ARE THE THERAPEUTIC INDICATIONS FOR COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Overall health care maintenance; constipation; diarrhea; colds/flu; fecal impaction; mild/moderate hemorrhoids; intestinal detoxification; intestinal atonicity; bad breath; body odour; gas/bloating; mental confusion/agitation; parasitic exposure; headaches; back aches/sciatic pain; allergies; before and after surgery; bowel training for para/quadriplegics; fatigue; candida; following pregnancy; preparation for bowel test; after barium enemas; irritable bowel syndromes; during weight loss/fasting programs; part of drug rehabilitation program; during a fast or cleanse.
12. WHAT ARE THE INDICATIONS UNDER A PHYSICIANS GUIDANCE OR RECOMMENDATION?
Acute fecal impaction; colitis; diverticulitis (inflamed); parasite infection; ulcerative or mucous colitis; chrohn’s disease; hyper/hypothermia; colostomy cleansing; severe hemorrhoids; any acute debilitating medical condition.
13. ARE THERE ANY ABSOLUTE CONTRA INDICATIONS FOR COLON THERAPY?
Yes. Cancer of the colon or G.I. tract; acute abdominal pain; recent history of G.I. bleeding; recent abdominal or colon surgery; recent heart attack; recent cardiovascular condition, uncontrolled hypertension; general debilitation; vascular aneurysm and possible history of seizures, epilepsy or psychoses; inflamed liver cirrhosis; kidney insufficiency.
14. WILL COLON HYDROTHERAPY AFFECT THE BACTERIA THAT RESIDES IN THE COLON?
Research has determined that there are more than thirty-six different species of bacteria that reside in the colon. Of these bacteria, more than twenty are formed in the stool of flesh eaters, all of which produce very highly toxic products. It is a well known fact that good bacteria, the bacteria that is necessary for proper digestion, has difficulty surviving when the colon is encrusted with old putrefied waste. At this time, there is no published data on the effects of colon hydrotherapy removing the indigenous intestinal microflora. The body is constantly manufacturing healthy bacteria flora.
15. WILL THE ELECTROLYTE BALANCE IN MY BODY BE CHANGED BY RECEIVING COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
In the 1989 study, “Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy on Serum Electrolytes”, reported in the Journal of Natural Medicine in 1990, no patient experienced any clinically significant symptoms or disturbances. When the body is properly nourished with good quality organic foods containing sodium, potassium and magnesium, the electrolyte level of the colon is replenished as part of the diet.
16. HOW OFTEN IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY NECESSARY?
Your colon hydrotherapist will be able to assist you based upon your discussion, what is observed during the procedure, your dietary habit history and your expectations or goals for cleansing and life style change. During the first session the client may expel considerable amounts of gas and recently digested food and waste, before one starts dislodging the old encrusted feculent matter.
Remember, that colon hydrotherapy sessions are a process of removing impaction of mucus and encrustation which have been built upon the colon wall layer by layer over many years. Reversing the situation may take a series of colon irrigations. Most clients begin feeling better and removing large amounts of waste matter after the third treatment.
Many colon therapists recommend consecutive sessions or a series of 5 to 10 colon hydrotherapy sessions for the first time client. Then, depending on the individual, it may be recommended that they have colon hydrotherapy every 3 to 6 months.
17. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE A COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
The sessions vary according to the individual needs and response. But colon cleansing usually lasts from 45 minutes to an hour. The first visit may be longer.
18. WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED FROM RECEIVING COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Some of the positive results people often experience include a profound cleanness and lightness. Others speak of a renewed energy and mental alertness. Still others enjoy relief of toxic feelings which they were not otherwise able to eliminate.
Occasionally, some people experience an emotional release as they “let go” of old matter they’ve been holding onto. This sort of release, when it occurs, is almost always followed by a strong sense of well-being.
19. WHAT ABOUT INTESTINAL WORMS OR PARASITES?
Colon therapists regularly report the removal of intestinal parasites from their clients. More people have worms and parasites that you can ever imagine. With the clear lighted observation tube of the colon machine, it is possible to see an amazing array of worms of all shapes and sizes come out of people’s colon.
These parasites and worms hide behind heavy impacted putrefaction, feeding, thriving and multiplying on morbific material. If you eat pork products, shell fish, sushi, raw or rare bloody meat, live on junk food, take antibiotics or suffer from long time constipation, the chances are very good that your intestinal tract may be loaded with them and you don’t even know it.
In the book “Parasites, An Epidemic In Disguise” written by Stanley Weinberger, CMT, the following points are made:
- More than 80% of the world’s people are infected with parasites, 60% of Americans are infected.
- You can get parasites from food handlers, eating a rare steak, shaking hands with an infected person, playing with your pet, or as a result of sexual activity.
- The number one parasite found in the United States is Giardia lamblia. This parasite has been found in water supplies throughout the USA, including Boston, New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, etc.
- Parasites thrive on junk food – sugar, fried foods and lots of carbohydrates. Parasites, such as hookworms, blood flukes and protozoa, are found in almost all people infected with the AIDS virus.
- A common treatment, metronizadole-Flagyl, is now only 5% effective in a single course program. Most patients treated with metronizadole-Plagyl complain of side effects, as well as a return of symptoms. The reasons given for negative stool specimen examinations is that the parasites live mostly in the upper portions of the intestine and colon and are well attached in the lining of the walls. Most naturopathic practioners believe that drug therapies are ineffective in removing intestinal worms and parasites without the use of colon irrigation.
20. WHAT ABOUT ‘CANDIDA ALBICANS’ YEAST OVER GROWTH?
Candida, like other yeast infections are systemic conditions emanating from the colon, and it can affect both men and women and is sexually transmitted. If the colon is not cleansed and the condition arrested, it can overcome the entire immune system. Symptoms can be: allergies, fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, colitis, acne, vaginitis, kidney and bladder infection, arthritis, depression, mood swings, hyperactivity, respiratory infections, etc.
Drugs only temporarily suppress the condition then make it worse. The only lasting successful treatment of this condition is a supervised detoxification program, nutritional guidance and colon hydrotherapy.
