What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
The road to health is the one that begins with an understanding and commitment to cleanse and detoxify the body. We need to accept our responsibility on this path.
--Dr Bernard Jensen PhD, N.D.
Colon hydrotherapy is an ancient method of treatment and detoxification using a soothing flow of highly filtered,temperature- and pressure-controlled water to gently circulate through the entire colon. This flow of water, the most powerful and important element known to mankind, causes a remarkable transformation in the way your colon moves. You see, your colon moves throughout the day in very small subtle waves. Moving the waste along through the colon. However, when you infuse water into the colon it causes it to move differently. This movement is called the "colonic effect." Your colon will now release it's contents of toxic waste material. This waste travels out of the colon through a sterile disposable speculum and waste hose.
But now comes the really exciting part. When your colon pushes out all of this toxic material, an amazing thing happens. A switch in your autonomic nervous system is now turned on and your liver goes to a much higher level of detoxification. It can stay at this level for up to three days.
How does this happen? Your body has many negative feedback systems designed to compensate for various happenings inside and outside of the body. For example, if you walk into a sauna, and start to overheat, a system will automatically turn on in order to cool your body down. It stays off unless you do something to turn it on. Well, there is a similar automatic system in our body that turns on when you have a colonic. It's built in. Your body knows what to do. This is also part of the "colonic effect," and it is the most important part. If you have never had a colonic, your body has never been to this level of cleansing. Just the way acupuncture has a specific effect on the body that nothing else can duplicate, so it is with colon hydrotherapy. It is the most important part of ANY cleansing or detoxification program.
