Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, gentle infusion of warm, filtered water into the large intestine via the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. This is a procedure which can be relaxing and effective in assisting bowel health. The individual lies comfortably on a custom treatment table and the therapist gently inserts a small speculum into the rectum. The therapist then monitors the temperature and pressure of the water infused into and out of the colon (large intestine) without any assistance on the part of the individual. Our machine is a closed system in which waste material is eliminated in a clean manner via our machine, viewing tube and directly into the sewage drain avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. Enemas or laxatives may give rise to dehydration in the individual while colon hydrotherapy improves the hydration of the individual. Laxatives can be habit forming, whereas colon hydrotherapy actually strengthens and tonifies the large intestine. The enema's cleansing activity is limited to the area of the sigmoid colon and is not nearly as through and efficient as a colon hydrotherapy treatment. The colon hydrotherapy method extends beyond the sigmoid area of the colon to the entire large intestine and offer greater therapeutic benefits.
Good health is as much a function of our elimination status as the quality of food we ingest. Consider that over 725 million dollars are spent annually on laxatives in the Unites States. Every year, about 150,000 Americans are diagnosed as having colon-rectal cancer. Of this population, 44% will die as a result of the disease. Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the U.S. At least two and a half million suffer from colitis, ileitis, or diverticulitis; 100,000 Americans have a colostomy a year. Periodic cleansing of the colon could prevent stagnation and minimize the exposure of cancer-causing agents to the colon wall.
Colon hydrotherapy has a therapeutic effect on the large intestine, whereby waste material, such as laden feces, gas, mucus, and toxins are removed. The result is a cleaner, healthier colon and an overall improved health status.
