FAQ's About Colonics / Colon Hydrotherapy
What Is A Colonic?

What Is A Colonic?

Colonics ( colonic irrigation, colon hydrotherapy or high colonic) are a safe,effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session.
 
Colonics are best used in combination with adequate nutrient and fluid intake as well as exercise. Today's sophisticated technology promotes both the safety and sanitation of this popular colon cleansing practice.
 
There are numerous testimonials of people across the U.S. and the world who have discovered colonics. They claim that due to colonics they have been able to live their lives without drugs, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants, and pain pills. In a society where Eastern and Western medicine combined to give us the best of both worlds, the acceptance of colonics has continued to grow with impressive results.
Are Colonics Sanitary?

Are Colonics Sanitary?

Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. We use the Hydrosan Closed System. Our FDA-registered equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and water purification unit. We use disposable single-use speculae.
 
Disposable tubing and disposable paper drapes on the table are used, personalizing each session and maximizing the conditions for a sanitary environment. The water is finely filtered beforehand (removing any potential impurities to a size as small as .5 microns).



What Is A Colonic Session Like?

What Is A Colonic Session Like?

Oftentimes, people are not fully informed about what to expect from a colonic session. The entire process is approximately 45 minutes long and is supervised under the guidance of an I-ACT Certified Colon Hydrotherapist.
 
During the session, most clothing can be kept on. Also, you will be draped and a gown can be worn as well to ensure
modesty. Your dignity is always maintained.
 
A colonic produces no toxicity and is a comfortable experience for many people. As the session begins, water (at body temperature) is slowly introduced into the colon, gently stimulating its peristaltic action to remove softened waste. This may be repeated several times. In other words, the session is an alternating cycle of gently filling the colon with water and naturally releasing waste from the body. Deep relaxed breathing is encouraged.
 
The removal of waste should encourage better colon health, function and elimination.

Why Should I Be Concerned About My Colon?

Why Should I Be Concerned About My Colon?

The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about and most of us don't until our health becomes poor or we feel constipated or have diarrhea. It greatly benefits the body to release this accumulated congestion in the bowel.
 
The colon (or large intestine) is a hollow tube-like organ made up of muscle structure that moves toxic materials out of the body by a wave-like motion known as peristalsis. When a person has constipation, the walls of the colon are generally packed or lined with accumulated feces. This causes extended periods of intestinal overloading. In this condition, the colon can neither absorb nor eliminate properly. Polluted blood from this system is picked up by the liver and circulates through every part of the body, reaching every cell. This condition is called toxemia or autointoxication (self-poisoning). To properly clean the body tissue, we must start by a thorough colon cleansing.
 
A toxic colon (or bowel) is the source of many health problems. Colon cleansing is a valuable procedure that activates the body’s self-healing processes thereby allowing a more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption.
How Many Colon Hydrotherapy Sessions Does One Need?

How Many Colon Hydrotherapy Sessions Does One Need?

Of course the number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual. There are many factors such as how many bowel movements per day a person has. Also, diet plays a big part - food and drinks. And then each person's goals will differ. Just as some people exercise on a daily or weekly basis to tone and tighten their outer body, some people follow an ongoing cleansing, toning and rebuilding regimen for the inner body. Colonics could be used as part of any regular maintenance program. For more information, feel free to contact us at 714-472-5617 for a free consultation.
Historical View of Colonic Irrigation

Historical View of Colonic Irrigation

Historians tell us that the practice of Colonic Irrigation or, in its most basic form, the enema, was first used by the
Egyptians. The Ebers Papyrus, of the 14th century B.C., and the Edwin Smith Papyrus (c. 1700 B.C.), both mention enemas and give directions for the use of the enema.
 
The 17th Century became what was known as the "age of the enema", or the "age of clysters". It was an acceptable
practice in Parisian society to enjoy as many as three or four enemas a day, the belief being that an internal washing or "lavement," essential to well being.
 
By the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, with the advent of rubber, the enema or clyster slowly gave way to colon hydrotherapy equipment which improved the cleansing of the colon. Surgeon Harvey W. Kellogg, M.D. reported in the 1917 Journal of American Medicine that in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in over 40,000 cases, he had used surgery in only twenty cases. The rest were helped as a result of cleansing the bowels, diet, and exercise.
 
Up until about 1920, doctors had Colon Hydrotherapy devices in their offices. Then along came drugs.
