Why Colon Hydrotherapy
The main benefit of Colon Hydrotherapy is that it removes the number one cause of all diseases in the body by cleansing the colon from accumulated toxic waste, parasites, and gases, allowing the Digestive System to re-establish its natural flora and optimize its daily functions.
The common beneficial effects of Colon Hydrotherapy:
Improved range of motion and other bowel functions
Relief from constipation, diarrhea, and bloating
Provides resistance training to muscles in the colon (Colon Gym)
Sinus drainage, by loosening the mucus in the lungs
Clearing up acne and other skin conditions
Skin tightening and rejuvenation
Relief from headaches
Improved posture and relief of back aches
Abdomen softening and shrinking
Body weight correction – weight loss/weight gain
Less fatigue, tiredness, and exhaustion
Better stress management Through each Colon Hydrotherapy session, the bowel muscles are getting trained to work more efficiently at eliminating toxins, parasites, digestive waste, and support nutrient absorption (Colon Gym). After the completion of the initial cleansing (Detox) program, it is highly recommended to have regular follow up treatments. The frequency of these treatments is dependent on dietary habits, lifestyle, level of physical activities, environmental stress, and other conditions which effect the person, to create a state of optimal health and performance.
Colon Hydrotherapy Preparation
It is recommended to have a small snack within the hour of your treatment, but avoid consuming a large amount of food or drink prior to your arrival.
Once in the treatment room, you will be asked to go to the restroom to empty your bladder and to undress. You can leave your top on and we will provide you with disposable spa underwear to put on. You will then lay down on your back on the treatment bed and call the therapist in the room when you are ready.
The therapist will insert a small disposable speculum in the rectum by using hospital grade gel to ensure a gentle procedure. The speculum has a separate water and waste line that is attached to the hydrotherapy equipment and delivers warm filtered water into the colon.
Your therapist will remain with you during the procedure, guiding and explaining all activities. A series of gentle fills and releases of water will help to stimulate peristaltic movement in the colon to expel gases and waste.
The waste tube allows matter to be discretely transported through it without offensive odors and you are able to see what your colon is eliminating through a clear lighted glass tube that runs through the colonic machine. Your therapist will use light massage techniques to help dislodge gases and liquefy waste. The procedure will take approximately 45 minutes.
After your session your therapist will leave the room and you can go to the private restroom to expel any remaining waste and then get dressed.
The treatment will allow you to return to the daily activity of your choice without any major discomfort or restrictions. Most people find themselves released, feeling lighter, and in a better mood afterwards.
The Colonic Machine
At REBOOT we use a medical grade closed circuit colon hydrotherapy equipment made with the highest standard ultra-purifying filtering system that includes ultra-violet, carbon, and ceramic filters.
After each treatment we sterilize the treatment room with an ozone generator plus spray and clean the treatment bed with a hospital grade disinfectant. To avoid contamination, each client receives a separate disposable speculum (insert), which will be sterilized after each session and disposed.
Colonic Hydrotherapy Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take and how do I prepare for a session? An appointment lasts approximately one hour, and you can continue your day as normal after a session. In fact, it will be a great day! It is not necessary to fast, however light meals and plenty of water before and after are recommended. Is colon hydrotherapy embarrassing? No mess, no fuss, no odor – in fact, a very relaxing experience.
Is the procedure painful? Rarely. Sometimes during the procedure, the muscles of the colon contract suddenly, expelling a considerable amount of liquid and waste into the rectum. The contraction may feel like cramping or gas pressure in the rectum. Most of the process is mild and gentle with a wonderfully light and empty feeling afterwards.
Will one cleansing completely empty the colon? Almost never. Many of us may have up to 10lbs or more of impacted feces in our colon. These feces are hardened rubbery materials and substantial work must be done to remove it. One cleansing removes some, the second, more, etc. Your personal objectives will determine how many colonics are recommended for you to have.
Does colon hydrotherapy wash away all bacteria, even the good? If your bowel is toxic you will have little or no good intestinal flora to begin with. As in gardening, where there are a lot of weeds – not many plants can grow and if you do not prepare the soil and fertilize the ground, plants will not live at all. The helpful bacteria can only live in an acidic environment, whereas the harmful ones thrive in an alkaline environment. Most people, due to years of improper eating, lack of exercise, and poor elimination, have an alkaline colon. The great benefit of the cleansing program is to change the environment from alkaline to acidic. If we make conditions favorable in the colon for bifido/acidophilus and other beneficial cultures ‘the good bacteria’ they will populate. Removing toxic material and gases is the first step. Replenishing good bacteria can be accomplished by oral supplementation.
Will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same results? Using an enema is missing most of the colon. During a colonic, the water washes all the way through the colon or bowel to the ileocecal valve (this is where the small and large intestine meet). Laxatives are irritants, causing the body to produce a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon, but depletes the colon of good bacteria. Laxatives can also become very habit forming.
Is the procedure safe and sanitary? With the use of high-tech equipment, which is equipped with a ultra-violet filtering system, combined with carbon and ceramic water filters, and the disposable apparatus, the equipment is totally safe. Furthermore, to assure total hygienic safety, the operator uses a hospital grade liquid sterilization system after each session.
What other benefits may I expect from colon hydrotherapy? The main benefit received from Colon Hydrotherapy is that we remove the number one cause of all diseases in the body by cleansing the colon from accumulated toxic waste, parasites and gases, allowing the Digestive System to re-establish its natural flora. Colon hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body with a wide variety of colon related conditions. By re-toning the bowel wall and improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more efficiently. Common effects are sinus drainage by loosening mucus in the lungs, improved range of motion and other bowel functions, and relief from constipation, diarrhea, bloating.
Provides resistance training to the muscles in the colon (colon gym), skin tightening and rejuvenation, feeling younger, clearing up acne and other skin conditions, relief from headaches, improved posture and relief of back aches, abdomen softening and shrinking, less fatigue, tiredness, exhaustion, and body weight correction – weight loss/weight gain. Colon hydrotherapy works to soothe and tone the colon, helping it to eliminate more efficiently. The function as a whole reduces the burden on other organs and the lymphatic system. The bowel then works more efficiently in eliminating toxins, parasites, digestive waste, and supports nutrient absorption.
Can one become dependent on it? Could the colon stop functioning on its own? Colon hydrotherapy retrains the muscles of the bowel to regain strength. The bowel muscles are forced to work against the water, providing resistance much like a weight provides resistance against a muscle in bodybuilding. After the bowel has regained its strength, it works better on its own. Colonics are like “colon gym sessions.”
A word about diverticulitis At the turn of the last century, diverticulitis was unheard of. By 1987 almost 80% of Americans have some form of the disease. Diverticula are saccular herniations, that protrude through the wall of the colon. These “bowel pockets” are almost always asymptomatic, (you can’t feel them). They are caused by a SLUGGISH constipated bowel. These pockets fill with OLD Fecal material which can be REABSORBED back into the Bloodstream! This can infect the ENTIRE body causing ALL types of TOXIC REACTIONS!!
Look at what can happen to the shape of a persons lower intestines. This can happen when toxic matter builds up on their intestinal wall throughout the years:
As the colon becomes impacted with dry putrefactive waste, its shape and function are affected in numerous ways. It may stretch like a balloon in certain areas, or develop diverticula (pouches on the intestinal wall which may become infected), or fall down upon itself (prolapsed colon). All of these colon malformations greatly impair your large intestine’s ability to function, which in turn places severe strain on your digestive organs and glands and affects nutrient assimilation and absorption. The colon is the body’s “sewer system”, and if not treated properly can accumulate toxic poisons, which are absorbed into the bloodstream. This in turn can cause many diseases. By doing colonics you can help to eliminate this dehydrated waste and help your colon wall heal.
