Colonic Irrigation. But why?
We are exposed to all kinds of toxic and thousands of chemicals every day at work, our home, we breathe air, eat food and drink water and through the use of medical drugs.
In addition, we eat 100x times more sugar and junk food than 100 years ago and regularly abuse our body with a variety of stimulant drugs and sedatives.
The research clearly shows that the body can not neutralize all the toxins and chemicals which we breathe in or eat each day.
They simply accumulate in our cells (especially fat cells), the body’s tissues, our blood, in our interior organs (such as the colon, liver and brain), and stocked indeterminate time causing various diseases later.
Faecal matter Kidney stones
Lack of physical exercise combined with the over- consumption of the typical western diet consisting of high-fat, low-fibre, refined foods such as white flour products, excessive meat, saturated fats found in animal products, sugar, alcohol, preservatives and agricultural toxins all produce toxic wastes and mucus in the body which, unless eliminated efficiently, end up impacted inside the bowel wall. You can imagine how ‘toxic’ this would make you feel and how this contributes to various symptoms.
The colon is the foremost elimination organ in your body – take care of it and it will take care of you!
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store waste matter that we would rather not think about and most of us don’t until a problem arises.
When combined with relevant herbal and natural remedies, colon hydrotherapy offers a safe and effective way to resolve long-term problems like:
- Constipation, Bloating, & IBS
- Inability to lose weight
- Headache and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Detoxification & Health Optimising
- Indigestion, Heartburn & GERD
- Acne, Eczema & Skin Problems
- Joint Pains
- Insomnia, Headaches & Low Energy
- Menstruation difficulties
… and many more conditions.
Treatment of the Colonic Irrigation should bring positive results.
For the most benefit the therapy needs to be used in combination with other tools, such as Healthy Diet, Oxygen water, Regular Exercise, Stress management, Emotional growth, Proper breathing, Hydration and Regular cleansing.”
COLONIC IRRIGATION – how does it work?
It should be noted that most clients need a series of colonic irrigations, not just one. The client may expel considerable gas during the first few treatments. It usually takes a few treatments before one starts dislodging old encrusted feculent matter. One should remember that it usually takes years for the colon to become clogged up with its own waste products. Therefore, one should not be impatient when pursuing a therapeutic course of colonic irrigations.
A gentle flow of warm, purified water is instilled into the Colonvia a disposable rectal tube. This will induce peristaltic contractions in the colon, and the client will begin to expel fecal matter through the colonic hose which leads back to the colonic machine and through a clear plastic viewing tube. It is quite interesting to see what is expelled during a normal colonic treatment. The water softens and loosens the content of the Colon aiding in easy elimination of toxins, bacteria, parasites, worms, candida, gas, undigested food material, mucous tissue, and very old feculent material (noted by its dark black colour) pass through this tube. This old feculent material may have been lying in the patient’s colon for years. It looks like vulcanized rubber and has that kind of consistency. In addition, the clients may experience sensations of warmth due to the presence of toxins in the feculent matter.
While the client is receiving Colonic Irrigation, the therapist slig htly massages various parts of the abdomen to help loosen and dislodge areas of fecal impaction. It is very important that the therapist use proper amounts of water. In addition, when less rather than more water is used, the client’s colon is forced to do more work, which is an important first step in restoring normal peristaltic activity to the diseased colon.
The treatment lasts approximately 45 minutes during which time between 25-50 litresof filtered water is introduced intermittently into theColonhydrating the bowel whilst loosening faecal plaque and impacted waste matter.
There is, no mess or odour and you are comfortably lying on your back and covered throughout the session, ensuring your dignity and privacy is maintained at all times. I use soft lighting, music and aromatherapy essential oils to help you relax and make your treatment more nurturing and enjoyable.
I use the „DOTOLO closed system”.
Every cell and tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream which provides it with fresh blood and oxygen to function optimally. When the bowel is dirty, the blood will also be dirty so invariably the bowel needs to be cleansed before healing can take place.
Where is the Colon located?
Shaped like an inverted U, the colon is comprised of three main sections, housed within the abdominal cavity. It begins in the lower right quarter of the abdominal cavity, around the waist area, and runs along the right side of the body (the ascending colon or cecum) until it reaches just below the liver.
Here, it crosses the abdomen (transverse colon) to the left side of the body, and finally descends down (the pelvic or sigmoid colon), and on to its terminating point at the rectum/anus.
Here, it crosses the abdomen (transverse colon) from the right, to the left side of the body, and finally travels down the descending colon, then on to the sigmoid colon (also known as the pelvic colon), and then to its terminating point at the rectum/anus.
Function of the Colon
It’s responsible for the final stages of the digestive process. The colon’s main job is to take out water and electrolytes from indigestible food matter; to accept and store food remains that were not digested in the small intestine; and to eliminate solid waste (feces) from the body.
The colon works to maintain the body’s fluid balance. It absorbs certain vitamins, and processes indigestible material (such as fibre), and stores waste before it is eliminated. Within the colon, the mixture of fibre, small amounts of water, and vitamins, etc., mix with mucus and the bacteria that live in the large intestine, beginning the formation of feces.
As the feces makes its way through the colon, the lining absorbs most of the water as well as some of the vitamins and minerals present. Bacteria within the colon feed on the fibre, breaking it down in order to produce nutrients that will nourish the cells that line the colon. This is why fibre is such a vital part of a diet geared toward the colon’s long-term health.
Feces is moved along until the walls of the sigmoid colon contract, causing waste to move into the rectum. Known as peristaltic action, this wave-like motion encourages feces to move closer to the rectum and, finally, be expelled through the anus.
Why Is a Healthy Functioning Colon So Vital?
The colon absorbs vitamins, salts, nutrients, and water. When these essential, life-giving ingredients are being properly absorbed, we feel good. But when the colon is not working well it begins to absorb toxins into the blood stream rather than expelling them. It drives into Auto-Intoxication S, also called endogenic toxicosis, which means self-poisoning resulting from the absorption of waste products of metabolism, decomposed intestinal matter, or other toxins produced within the body.
The colon plays host to a zoo of bacteria: over one hundred trillion microorganisms (bacteria) call the colon home. There are more microorganisms contained in the colon than are in the skin, heart, bone, brain, and the rest of the body’s cells combined. A proper balance of healthy bacteria must be maintained inside the colon to avoid being constantly plagued with digestive ailments.
In addition, the world we live in places a serious toxic burden on the colon. Most of the food we eat is not only lacking in nutrients; it’s filled with additives, preservatives, and other mysterious chemicals. From the air we breathe and the water we drink, to the thousands of chemicals we come into contact with each day – it all takes its toll on the colon and, ultimately, on our overall health.
A Delicate Balance
The specialized cells of the colon and microorganisms (bacteria) in the gut exist in a delicate balance that can easily be upset by food, stress, chemicals in the environment, and diseases such as parasites, candida, and others.
If digestion and colon function are not working well, the body operates in a state known as auto-intoxication. This means the body is working hard to get rid of toxins, but it cannot keep up because the toxins are being recycled, rather than expelled.
An out of balance colon may be at the root of chronic diseases such as arthritis, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and even heart disease, or cancer. To avoid long-term health problems, it is essential to maintain proper colon function.
IMPORTANCE OF CLEANSING
With Colonic Irrigation, your sense of well being is often dramatically improved. You feel lighter and more energetic. The body can again take nourishment from food and defend itself against disease. Natural peristalsis, tone and regularity are restored and many serious diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique.
If you do not have a movement for each meal you eat, then you need help to get your system in shape. The quickest improvement for those having Colonic Irrigation is their energy level. They are not as tired as prior to colonics. Next the skin condition is improved. Other benefits are better assimilation of nutrients, less body odour and bad breath, and less belly distension.
The importance of keeping our body clean inside as well as out cannot be over emphasised. You will not be able to secure good health, unless you clean out your system, and these systems can’t be cleaned out if the main drain is sluggish or plugged up. Our colon is the main drain and seeing what comes out of people’s unhealthy colons could be quite a shock. In autopsies on colons, seventy percent of the bodies had encrusted faecal matter and worms and impaction in the colon.
If you think your colon is clean because of your bowel habit, let’s consider a few more facts. Out of one hundred people, there may be one or two not having matter lining the walls and pockets of the colon. Of the other ninety-eight, there are probably fifty who have some very heavy encrustments in the colon; of the other forty-eight, about half will have up to eight pounds of matter lining the colon, and the other half will have up to five pounds.
Colonic Irrigation will not only tell you if you have parasites but also help to remove them. Some symptoms of parasites can include restless sleeping, fatigue, poor assimilation and absorption of nutrients, food cravings (especially for sugars and breads), as well as an inability to feel satisfied after a large meal.
Colonic Irrigation will also help improve the beneficial bacteria in your bowel. Even though some good and bad bacteria will be washed out during the session, it is much easier for the body to reproduce beneficial bacteria after a session when bad bacteria and waste have been reduced.
The majority of the people find that the benefits outweigh any concerns that they might have had initially. It is absolutely safe and a surprisingly pleasant procedure if done by a well trained holistic practitioner.
BENEFITS OF COLONIC IRRIGATION
- It withdraws the toxics, the cause of irritants and allergies.
- Rehydrates the bowel.
- It heals the wall of the gut
- Stabilizes the bowel flora.
- The bowel function going to be optimized.
- It will help you to understand your body.
Colonic Irrigation is used to accomplish the following…
Cleansing the colon allows toxic material to be broken down so it can no longer harm the body. Debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning so by gently removing it, your colon will begin to cooperate as it is meant to.
Hydrating the colon with water encourages the breakdown of impacted and dehydrated faecal, mucoid and waste material that layer the walls of the intestine allowing improved elimination of waste matter.
In a real sense, Colonic Irrigation is a rejuvenation treatment.
The gentle filling and emptying of the colon with warm water improves peristaltic movement. This is the muscular contraction by which the colon naturally moves material along. With the water moving forwards and backwards it is a gentle form of exercise stimulating the bowel wall keeping it healthy.
When any problems occur in the colon, e.g.: constipation, it alters the shape, as the bowel gets fuller storing more waste matter and can lead to autointoxication. Peristalsis decreases, slowing the transit time, allowing the food to putrefy, which causes more problems like wind and bloating. The action of the colon filling and emptying with water, combined with the massage technique of your therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste enabling the colon to resume its natural state.
The colon has reflex points that correspond to various organs, glands and other areas such as the eyes. Colonic Irrigation will stimulate these reflex points thereby improving general wellbeing.
Benefits from Colonic Irrigation extend to all diagnostic procedures for evaluating the colon facilitating a more accurate study. Patients undergoing general anesthesia may benefit as it would dramatically reduce the problems associated with bowel functions following surgery.
