We believe that health starts in the digestive system. After all, you are what you eat, and cannot repair your body from everyday wear and tear if you aren’t digesting well. As hormones and stress levels fluctuate, our bowels do not move as much as they should, and colonics are an important addition to any health or detoxification program. If you are not having a bowel movement after every meal, you are constipated, which can lead to IBS, diverticulitis and even colon cancer. Colon hydrotherapy can help balance the immune system, detoxify the body, rehydrate and even help patients to lose weight.
While the process may see strange, most people feel remarkably better after the therapy, and get them frequently. At your first appointment you will have a brief meeting with one of our doctors, and they will determine if you are a candidate for the therapy. If you are pregnant or lactating, you should wait until you no longer are due to possible toxins being mobilized in your system which could be theoretically passed on to your baby. Other contraindications include inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis or having had recent abdominal surgery.
After the doctor interviews you, they will perform an abdominal exam, and may do a digital rectal exam. If those are normal, they will insert the speculum and leave you in the hands of our capable and highly trained therapists. During the process the therapist will introduce water slowly into your intestines. This can be very hydrating, and it will also loosen any impacted matter in your colon. When you feel the urge to go, you communicate that to your therapist, and they reverse the flow on the machine and the waste exits through a waste tube. We use a closed system, which we feel is more hygienic and comfortable than the open system. Your therapist may repeat the process from 5-15 times during a session, and you are in complete control of the situation the entire time.
