WHAT IS COLON THERAPY or COLONIC?

A colonic is a hygienic cleansing of the large intestine. The colon, large intestine or large bowel are all names describing the eliminating organ of the body leading from the small intestine to the exterior anus.The colon is approximately 5 to 8 feet long in the average adult and is as around as your wrist.

A colonic is a very gentle washing of your colon with water. Like taking an internal shower.

When colon therapy is administered by a skilled colon therapist, it will help the body return to normal bowel function and detoxing the toxic waste build up out of the colon.

Other factors such as diet, nutrition suggestions, massage, advice concerning exercise, breathing, supportive techniques and topical applications of aromatherapy complete the therapy.

HOW IS COLON THERAPY ADMINISTERED?

Water is introduced into the colon through a disposable rectal speculum that is inserted into the rectum about 1 to 1 1/2 inches, then there is a release of water and waste material. In this way, the colon is gently washed in progressive intervals ( like a little water in-waste and water out - repeated again and again). You can visualize this by imagining a wave hitting a beach and then receding time and time again carrying away silt and residue each time.

Several factors reduce the efficiency of the colon. Poor bowel tone commonly occurs due to the following: ingesting highly processed over cooked denatured foods, and the use of alcohol, tranquilizers, pain medication.

Failure to heed the “urge to go” lack of proper exercise and fresh air, and decrease in or lack sufficient amounts of WATER!

Just like the build of plaque on your teeth or arteries, you build up plaque on your colon walls. The colon can become caked with un-eliminated wast and residue reducing the passageway compounding problems. The purpose of a colonic is to restore the normal clear passageway and bowel tone to that the body can operate properly.

FUNCTION OF A HEALTHY COLON

Quite simply, the colon operates as the body’s sewage system. Its MAIN function is to continue the digestion of food which is initiated in the small intestine, remove water for use by the body, remove mineral salts, remove dead cells and toxic material outside of the body. This is completed by waves of muscle contractions in the wall of the colon. The colon also holds healthy bacteria which initiate the process of breaking down the waste, thus preventing a toxic condition in the body.

In a healthy system, it should require no more than 24 hours of transit time for food to pass through the digestive system. An individual with a normal functioning colon should have as many bowel movements per day as he/she has had meals the previous day. There should be no constipation or diarrhea.

SOME SYMPTOMS OF AN UNHEALTHY COLON

  • Tired and irritable
  • Swollen and distended stomach area
  • Digestive disturbances
  • Constipation, diarrhea, and in severe cases, toxemia
  • Bad breath
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Weight gain, cellulite deposits
  • Skin blemishes, rashes
  • Excessive gas
  • Joint pain

HOW IS A COLONIC DIFFERENT THAN AN ENEMA?

You have probably heard it said that regular dose enemas can be harmful. This is true because with an enema a person introduces about a quart of water in the colon. The water usually enters only the rectum (about the first six inches of the colon). This water is held as long as possible. This stretches the colon muscles which can result in a permanently over-stretched rectal wall reducing bowel tools and tone causing an interruption in bowel function.

With a colonic irrigation the water is in a constant state of flowing. There is no prolonged build up and retention. During a colon session the person usually receives a small amount of water at their comfort level and then released. This is more like a gently rushing river which given time is able to wash away stone. So it is with colon irrigation. The actual flow gently loosens and moves out the waste and built up material on the colon wall.
