Being full of sugar, honey, ice, tea sounds sweet huh? Well, it really isn’t very sweet, in fact that a nice way of saying you’re full of crap. The proper way to say it is you need to defecate or discharge feces from your body. To accomplish this you can do what you’ve done for years, but when you are in need of a more intense elimination, you can decide to get a colonic. A colonic  is the infusion of water into the rectum by a colon therapist to cleanse and flush out the colon.  This gentle treatment effectively alleviates constipation, bloating, gas and abdominal discomfort.  The process of colon hydrotherapy is the gentle soaking of the large intestine with filtered, body temperature water, which loosens the stool in order to eliminate excess gas and fecal matter from the colon. Its is thought that over the years some fecal matter remain and harden in the colon causing toxins and harmful bacteria.  

Why would you get a colonic:

  • To remove accumulated waste from the colon
  • To help relieve gas and constipation
  • To improve your overall  health
  • To begin weight loss

The procedure is rather simple.  You will be asked to lay down, a colon therapist gently inserts a disposable tubing  into the anus. The tube is connected to a long disposable plastic hose connected to the colon hydrotherapy unit. Warm, filtered body temperature water is slowly released into the colon filling your belly. The excess water causes the muscles of the colon to fill up and  contract releasing feces out through the hose into a closed disposable waste system.  You and the colon therapist can view the feces through the clear hose as it exists your body. It is common to experience some discomfort and nausea in the abdomen during the therapy.  The colon therapist will apply light massage to the abdominal area to relax the belly and facilitate the excretion process.  After some time of being manipulated on the table, you may opt to sit on a toilet to pass additional water and stool. A session lasts about one hour. After your session you will given water and told to eat a banana to put back any potassium that may have been lost during the colonic therapy. After a brief rest you will be able to resume your normal activity and you will feel lighter and more energized.  

If you are considering a colonic treatment, it is suggested that you consult with your doctor to make sure this procedure is an option for you.
