What is colon hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is the gentle infusion of warm, purified water into the colon (large intestine) to remove impacted fecal matter and decrease the organ’s toxic bacterial concentration. The procedure generally lasts about forty (40) minutes and helps to create balance while toning the colon’s muscles for the purpose of improved peristaltic action, elimination and overall bowel health.
There are currently many colon hydrotherapy methods and systems used today. At Relaxing Alternatives, we offer both a “closed-style” (HydroSans) and an “open-style” (LIBBE) system. Both are FDA approved systems and all materials used on either system are safe and disposable. The environment is private and aesthetically pleasing, and we strive to make your experience confortable and relaxing.
What is the difference between the “open” and “closed” style systems?
First of all, both are equally effective and neither should be considered ‘better’ than the other.
That being said, with the ‘closed’ system the water going in and the waste and water being eliminated stay “enclosed” in the disposable plastic speculum that is inserted into the rectum. The practitioner is by your side during the entire process controlling the flow of water in and out during the entire procedure.
With the “open” system, the client is lying down on a specially designed table and inserts a thin flexible tubing into the rectum. Once the water is turned on, the client will eventually feel the need to release and can do so. The elimination takes place around or outside of the tubing and is taken out through the system. With this style system, it is not necessary for the practitioner to stay by the side of the client the entire procedure. They can actually step out of the room for short temporary intervals if the client prefers.
In many cases it really just comes down to a matter of personal preference. For someone who has never had colonics obviously there is no way to know until you have experienced the procedure.
How can colon hydrotherapy help with my health and wellness goals?
Colon hydrotherapy can support your health and wellness objectives primarily through cleansing and rejuvenation of the colon. There are over 22 know poisons that can be found in a toxic colon. A buildup of colon toxins can stress and weaken the heart, cause wrinkles, blemishes, psoriasis and liver spots, disturb mental function, cause acidity of the body tissues–leading to decreased energy, calcium and other mineral loss in the bones, bad breath, dental problems, and can be directly related to arthritis and joint pain.
Through colon hydrotherapy, the colon is detoxified and reconditioned. This promotes improved organ function. As this occurs, the entire toxic load of the body is decreased, reducing the burden of the immune system, which is absolutely necessary in any efforts to build and maintain health. In addition, colon hydrotherapy is highly beneficial during a detoxification program following a major illness or health challenge.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of required treatments varies depending upon the individual’s health status and overall wellness goals. However, a minimum of 3 sessions is generally recommended and anywhere from 6 to 10 necessary to adequately achieve detoxification and colon rejuvenation.
