What is the function of the colon?
Proper colon function is necessary to maintain good health and assist the body in effectively eliminating food wastes. The colon is the end of the gastrointestinal tract that also includes the rectum, anus, and large intestine. As the contents of digestion are moved along the colon receives them and performs its general function. It absorbs water and minerals and produces and eliminates fecal matter. The entire process of digestion takes anywhere from 12 to 24 hours depending on colon health and if it is fully functional. Infrequent bowel movements can leave toxic residues from the undigested food in the colon and cause this process to slow down.

What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy (also known as colonic, colon cleansing, colon irrigation, or high enema) is a method of hydrating and toning the large intestine. Many health authorities believe that diseases begin in the colon, and that colon health is critical to general health and well-being. Colon Hydrotherapy is one of the most effective ways of hydrating the colon and detoxifying the overall system. Colon hydrotherapy indirectly works with nine out of the eleven major systems of our body, including the respiratory, urinary, digestive, immune, cardiovascular, lymphatic, integumentary, nervous, and endocrine systems. When the colon works properly, overall body systems tend to work properly. Waste material (such as impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, and parasites) that has remained in the colon for some time poses several problems. This waste can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream, causing fatigue and foggy thinking. Impacted material also impairs the colon's ability to assimilate minerals and vitamins. Lastly, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movement, slow transit time, and constipation.


The First Session 
The initial session will be with one of our Certified Colon Hydrotherapists and this will be about a 90 minute session. It includes discussing diet and digestive concerns, as well as any other issues relating to your overall health and well being before your first colonix session. Your colon hydrotherapist will explain how the digestive system works, give you an orientation of the equipment used, and make sure you feel comfortable with the entire process. We will then move into a full colon hydrotherapy session. Body work, abdominal massage, breathing exercises, and aromatherapy are all used to further enhance your treatment.


Preparing (diet) for Your Colonic
No meat, no dairy, no bread and pasta. To avoid as much gassy foods as possible, examples would be beans or broccoli. To increase your water 24 hours before your appointment, by drinking half your body weight in ounces. An example would be 50 ounces of water per hundred pounds. And then finally to fast three hours before your appointment no food or drink during this time. And avoid alcohol and caffeine if possible before your session.
