COLON CLEANSE: What is it?


Colon cleanse is also referred to as high enemas.  It is the infusion of filtered, temperature controlled water into the colon through a rectal nozzle that is inserted into the rectum.  When the water is filtered in, fecal matter is then released.  The colon is the last five and a half to six feet of the digestive tract.  It is a hollow, tube-like organ approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter.  Its primary function is to move digested food along by wave-like motion know as peristaltic action.  The colon is the living area for a host of bacteria that help synthesis vitamins, such as K and some B vitamins.  The colon also functions to absorb nutrients, water, proteins and salts back into the blood stream.


Colon cleanse allows the body to rid itself of impacted fecal matter by gently infusing water into the colon.  Because the water hydrates the colon, it will help soften the fecal matter thus allowing the body to flush it out the system more readily.  When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time, it causes the body to become overloaded with toxins.  The body will then start to back-up into itself, known as autointoxication.  The backed-up toxins will eventually end up in the blood stream which can lead to variety of health problems and the slowing down of other daily functions.  The body’s response to this overloading is the slowing down of other bodily functions which lead to problems such as sluggishness and body aches. 


Over consumption of meat, diary, sugar and white flour products along with heavy exposure to pesticides and other chemicals, have caused our bodies to become toxic.  Our body’s immune system takes longer to handle the heavy amount of toxins that our food and environment continue to bombard us with.  Thus, colon cancer is on the rise along with a multitude of other diseases.  Our health problems didn’t start overnight.  It was a gradual pollution of our body.  So it stands to reason that detoxing and cleansing the body cannot be accomplished in one colon cleanse. 

I-ACT (International Association of Colon Therapy) recommends a series of 12 colon cleanses for a good cleansing of the colon.  The 12 series would consist of 2 back-to-back sessions the first week, 2 more back-to-back the second week and then once a week for 8 weeks.

We also have packages of 8 and 6 colon cleanses which are best done 2 back-to-back sessions the first week 2-back-to-back the second week and then one per week for the remaining colon cleanses in the series. A minimum of three colon cleanses is recommended to get the colon basically cleanse.

For our clients who are unable to do a series, it is highly recommended to do a minimum of 3 colon cleanses back-to-back.  The reason being, after the first colon cleanses session, the colon has significant amount of water in it.  By doing another colon cleanses (the second day), clients report more significant releases.  This is primarily because the colon is already hydrated and flushing out impacted matter is easier when it has been softened.

Another important reason for the second colon cleanse is the fact that although one is releasing toxins from the body, some toxins may be reabsorbed (remember the colon is an absorbing organ). So, what happens is the client may report flu-like symptoms the next day.  When the client comes in for the second session, the liver will pull toxins from the blood system and dump them into the colon, where the colon cleanse is readily able to flush them from your system.


One method for revitalizing the colon is the colon cleanse procedure whereby the lower colon is flushed with warm, purified water.  The procedure is, painless, comfortable and private.  When the colon is cleansed, relief from varied disturbances is often dramatic and you may experience an immediate sense of well-being.  By hydrating the contents of the colon with warm water, the hard, encrusted fecal matter softens and is removed along with mucus, gas, parasites, Candida, cellular debris and bacterial toxins.  Proper colon cleansing aids greatly in eliminating an unwanted and unsightly excess pounds.  Many clients have notice weight loss after having their intestinal tract cleaned.  Some clients report they have never been able to perspire until receiving colon therapy.  Because of the removal of toxic waste, the skin becomes strong, healthy and people look years younger.  Memory is often improved. Many people report that they sleep better so they have more energy.  When we remove the toxic debris, feed the body healthy, vital food and stop poisoning ourselves, the body will respond by reversing disease and healing itself.
