What is the colon anyway?
The Colon is referred to as the sewer system of the body. it is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not talk about.
The colon or large intestine is the end portion of the human digestive tract. The colon is 5 to 5 1/2 feet in length. An unclean, weak and poorly functioning colon is a breeding ground for disease. A clean strong and well-functioning colon is essential to maintain optimal health. Almost anyone can benefit from internal cleansing. Every day our bodies are exposed to toxins and pollutants from the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. When the toxins build up faster than they can be eliminated, of when elimination systems are under active, these toxins accumulate. Colon hydrotherapy is designed to rid the body of toxins.
Eliminate Toxins and Disease with a Healthy Colon
"Life and Death, Health and Disease....All start in the Colon".
After a series of sessions Many of my clients have reported:
Better digestion, less bloating, improved energy, reduced craving for sweets, more restful sleep, less constipation, feeling clean and light, more mental alertness, cleaner skin, less depression, reduction in waist size, reduction in back pain and headaches.
Colon Hydrotherapy has become widely accepted as a treatment which promotes good health and well being. Using disposable equipment. Warm filtered water is gently infused into the colon using gravity fed low pressure via the rectum. the therapist gently massages the abdomen to encourage the water to move through the colon. When the water is released from the colon, gas, mucus, impacted feces and therefore toxins are removed from the body.. during the process the client will be lying comfortably covered from the waist down at all times. comfort and privacy is of the utmost importance and this is always respected.
Preparation and After-Care WATER CONSUMPTION For the most effective and productive colonic, you want to make sure that you’re well hydrated. Most people who experience less than optimal transit time are dehydrated. To find how many ounces of water you should drink in a day:-Divide your body weight in half-Add 8 ounces for every caffeinated beverage you consume-Add 8-16 ounces for every hour of your daily exercise routine Meeting your water needs everyday for two weeks will help to rehydrate your tissues. Water consumption is extremely important for optimal health and acts as a vehicle for removing unwanted toxins, especially when cleansing. Filtered water is best. Show up to your appointment as hydrated as you can. With the LIBBE system, you can relieve your bladder at anytime very comfortably so it’s not necessary to stop drinking water before your appointment. EATING: If you're not on a cleanse, stop eating 2 hours before your scheduled appointment. This will make your colonic more comfortable as your body will not be digesting and eliminating at the same time. Failure to do this can result in nausea and occasionally vomiting during your session. Do not consume alcohol the night before your treatment. Please do not come in hung over. We are not responsible if you fail to meet this standard and we will cancel your appointment should you skip this step. Following your appointment we suggest eating lightly steamed vegetables, having bone broth or a blended soup, or a mono meal of pineapple (rich in bromelain). Many people will benefit from taking HCL or a digestive enzyme with their next meal following a colonic. For best results we suggest proper food combining following your colonic. SUPPLEMENTATION: If you are constipated, we suggest taking a therapeutic dose of a water soluble magnesium the night before and after your treatment. This will help to draw water into the colon and keep stool from dehydrating and becoming difficult to move. Natural Calm is available at Whole Foods and can help minimize cramping sensations during your session.
