In conclusion... Colon hydrotherapy is the safe, gentle infusion of purified warm water into the colon under conditions that offer safety, using no chemicals or drugs. It is the natural solution to conditions which interfere with the normal functions of the colon.
Why is colon hydrotherapy such a valuable treatment modality? A healthy colon is essential to a healthy body...
Conventional diets of today comprised of refined, processed foods, high in saturated fats and low in natural fiber, contribute to the magnitude of the constipation problem. The elimination of undigested food and other waste products are as important as the proper digestion and assimilation of food stuffs.
Waste material allowed to remain too long in the digestive system results in fermentation and putrefaction of these substances and subsequent proliferation of bacteria and their toxins.
Laxatives offer only temporary relief and do not address the real cause of the problem.
Colon hydrotherapy effectively removes stagnant fecal material from the colon walls, preventing the build up of these bacterial toxins in the portal and lymphatic system, resulting in a reduced load on the liver. In addition, the treatment removes mucous, gas, parasites and cellular debris, facilitating peristaltic action and better absorption of nutrients.
This natural cleansing process effectively resolves the symptoms directly and indirectly related to dysfunction of the large intestine.
Bacteria are involved in the production of several vitamins, including vitamin 'K' and some of the 'B' vitamins, which are absorbed by the large intestine and stored in the liver. In addition to vitamins, the colon absorbs large amounts of water. Unfortunately, toxins of bacterial metabolism also enter the circulatory system. These toxins (Indol, Skatol, Phenol, etc.) are treated by the liver and excreted by the kidneys.
Colon bacteria will ferment starches releasing hydrogen and methane gasses which are absorbed and excreted through the lungs. Thus, halitosis may be a symptom of a stagnant fermenting colon.
Intestinal toxemia may further result in headaches, allergies, irritability, malnutrition and potentially lead to an overall lowering of an individual's immunological defense mechanism. Intestinal stasis can enhance the systemic absorption of bacteria and their toxins. The prolonged retention of food residues, bile, etc., results in increased numbers of parasitic bacteria present in the colon.
Some of the colon's normal flora may become pathogenic under these stagnant or putrefactive conditions. For example, streptococcus and staphylococcus which are part of the normal flora of the large intestine under the above conditions, could enter the systemic circulation and be a potential source of disease.
It is my own personal and professional opinion that colon hydrotherapy is one of the most valuable treatment modalities offered at our clinic.
Colon Hydrotherapy may be a valuable solution by itself
or in conjunction with an integrated metabolic
program for a myriad of health problems.

Colon Hydrotherapy or Colon Cleansers?

We've tried many different colon cleansers over the years and the effectiveness of each varies greatly.
