Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colonics, is a very gentle infusion of purified water into the colon. This infusion of warm water hydrates the colon and loosens impacted fecal matter, thus allowing it to leave the body without causing or aggravating hemorrhoids.
Colon hydrotherapy releases toxins, cleans the blood, stimulates the immune system, and assists in restoring proper pH balance in the body.
Colon Cleansing for Detoxification and Bowel Health
Working with our medical doctors, our I-ACT certified colon hydrotherapist is able to assist patients in detoxifying their bodies by utilizing a series of colonics. Whether we are doing heavy metal detoxification, treatment for Lyme disease, treating allergies, or simply improving digestive system function, colon hydrotherapy is frequently recommended as part of our integrative protocols. Colonics, daily probiotics, a healthy diet and lifestyle allow the body to properly remove toxins naturally and reportedly provide relief from the symptoms of many other health problems.
Colon Hydrotherapy offers an excellent opportunity to restore and maintain optimum bowel health.
What is proper bowel health?
The bowel contains billions of bacteria, both friendly and unfriendly. You want to maintain a balance of about 80% friendly to 20% unfriendly bacteria. When your system becomes compromised, the friendly bacteria can fail to contain the unfriendlies, causing an overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria and leading to a toxic environment. Your system can become compromised by many factors, including consumption of processed foods or pesticides, absorptions of unhealthy environmental toxins, illness, medications, or stressful events or lifestyle.
What happens when I have an imbalance in the bowel?
An overgrowth of unfriendly bacteria, and thus a lack of friendly bacteria, can compromise immune system functioning, affect the synthesis and absorption of important vitamins and nutrients, and can lead to a loss of integrity in the lining of the colon wall. When the colon wall loses integrity, toxins are allowed to enter the bloodstream, and the body stores them in your fat cells, organs and tissues.Colon hydrotherapy may assist the body with detoxification of these toxins.
What are the signs that I may have an imbalance?
Think about what can happen when toxins travel and are stored throughout your system. You may realize chronic pain, general achiness, brain fog, headaches, fatigue, hormonal imbalances and much more. Many of these symptoms can mount and be contributed to other more serious diseases, such as arthritis and autoimmune disorders.
What should I do to get my system back in balance?
The colon is the body's major organ for the elimination of toxic matter. At NIHA, we offer Colon Hydrotherapy as a means of cleansing the colon. Colon Hydrotherapy is the insertion of warm purified water into the colon to stimulate the body's natural peristaltic action to gently flush away impacted fecal matter and toxic waste.
The FDA-approved colon hydrotherapy device we use is called the LIBBE. This device is clean, safe and gentle. It is considered one of the most comfortable and non-invasive approaches to experiencing colon hydrotherapy. This state-of-the-art device provides a gentle, steady flow of purified, warm water into the colon through a very thin disposable rectal tube. This open system is preferred because it uses the body’s own muscles to provide a more natural release of fecal matter from the body.
