The bowel is a very important elimination organ approx 1.5 metres in length and in order to be clearing the body’s digestive waste properly we should be having 2 to 3 bowel good bowel movements daily. If all the residue of the food we eat is not fully eliminated there is certainty of auto-intoxication as this food residue becomes a growth medium for unfriendly micro-organisms. Harmful toxins then build up and can be absorbed across the semi-permeable bowel membrane into the blood. From there they may cause problems anywhere in the body interfering with the normal healthy function of cells eg the skin, joints, liver, glandular or other organs. Many modern processing methods alter the nature of foods so they can arrive at the bowel incompletely digested. Also foods that are over- processed trigger the bowel to produce excess mucus. This further compounds the situation adding more stickiness and congestion thereby interfering with the normal peristaltic wave movements of the bowel wall and its ability to move the waste along.
Colonic hydrotherapy (colonic irrigation) is a detoxifying treatment which cleanses the colon of excess mucus, gases, toxins, harmful bacteria and accumulated waste. There is no internal pain – just a steady flow of warm purified water in and out of the bowel which helps it to recover its natural shape, tone and peristaltic wave action. Colonic hydrotherapy removes impactions from the bowel wall and it is an excellent method of detoxifying the body in general. The procedure lasts approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. A course of 4 colonics is advised and the best results are achieved when the therapy is combined with a programme of diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle adjustments. Patients report very positive results – improving with each treatment. Some of the problems addressed are:
Digestive Upsets, Heartburn, Bloating, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Haemorrhoids, Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticulosis, Skin problems, Fluid retention, Weight gain, Headaches, Allergies, Asthma, Fatigue, Yeast infections, Chronic Urinary tract Infections
Taking a natural herbal preparation for 1 week before the colonic is required in order to prepare the bowel for the treatment, by loosening mucus and impacted waste and by favourably altering the bowel micro-flora thereby producing better results.
