Getting Down With Colonics

One of the most important pieces of the healing process is releasing toxins from the body. Anything our body does not release, is returned to the blood stream. Colonics are a great tool for cleaning out the colon and releasing years of buildup. Here's some information from my wonderful colonics practitioner Caroline: 

Colon Hydrotherapy (also called Colonics, High Enema, Colon Lavage) is the safe, gentle infusion of warm filtered water into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. It is a restorative, painless procedure which is both relaxing and effective. The individual lies comfortably on a custom treatment table and the therapist gently inserts a small speculum into the rectum. The therapist then monitors the temperature and pressure of the water infused into and out of the colon (large intestine) without any assistance on the part of the individual.

This will induce peristaltic contractions in the colon, and the patient will begin to expel fecal matter thru the colonic hose which leads back to the colonic machine and through a clear glass viewing tube. It is quite interesting to see what is expelled during a normal colonic treatment. One may see mucous, parasites and very old feculent material (noted by its dark black color) pass through this tube. This old feculent material may have been lying in the patient’s colon for years. In addition, the patient may experience sensations of warmth due to the presence of toxins in the feculent matter. While the patient is receiving the colonic treatment, the colon therapist lightly massages various parts of the abdomen to help loosen and dislodge areas of fecal impaction.

Colon therapy cleanses the entire colon without stressing the individual and provides a closed system in which waste material is eliminated through the instrument and out the drain line, avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual. Colon therapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The enema’s cleansing activity is limited to the area of the rectum and to shorter periods of time due to the body’s natural wish to expel any material from the rectum. The colon therapy method extends beyond the rectum to cleanse the entire large intestine and offer greater cleansing and therapeutic benefits. Enemas or laxatives may precipitate dehydration in the individual, but colon hydrotherapy, in effect, would improve the hydration status of the individual. 

You can find out more on her website Caroline's Colon Health Care. I have had several colonic sessions over the past few years and always feel lighter, my bowels seem to move better, I have more energy, and over all just feel better. I highly recommend looking for a Colonic's practitioner in your area.

Have you ever had a Colonic? What was it like for you? Would you do it again?
