Colon Hydrotherarpy

colon hydrotherapy swindon

Colonic Hydrotherapy (also known as Colonic Irrigation) is a practice dating from around 1500 BC. and is a gentle internal bath using purified water that helps deep cleanse the colon of accumulated faecal matter, gas, mucus and toxic substances.

Due to stress and diet, most people have many layers of this unwanted material. The average person has about 5-15 pounds!

Colon hydrotherapy is a valuable procedure used to assist the body with the reversal of multitude of health conditions resulting from improper diet and years of poor elimination.

Treatment:

Lasting approx 45 mins, the treatment is a safe and effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material by repeated gentle flushing with purified water and special massage techniques. The water is introduced at a low gravitational pressure, so there is no danger of bowel perforation.

The number of treatments required depends upon the individual case and advice will be given at the first consultation. This may vary from only one treatment to a number spread out over a period of time, after which preventative or maintenance treatment may be continued.

Herbs

The use of herbs can be of benefit to the colon and can enhance the success of the treatment.

Co-ton

An exact replica of Dr. John Christophers well-known formula for over- and under-active bowels and poor eliminative capacity. Only slightly laxative, it acts mainly to tone the colon smooth muscle, restoring normal peristaltic function. Can be used for quite long periods at varying dosage, depending upon the individual.
1 or two capsules three times daily with meals.
Note: Not to be taken during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Co-ton without Goldenseal

As above, but without Goldenseal, which is replaced by an extra part of fennel. This formula should be either alternated with the regular CO-TON or should be used to replace the regular for long-term use. Goldenseal, whilst a very useful (and expensive!)

herb, should not be used long-term.
1 or two capsules three times daily with meals.

Note: Not to be taken during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Acidophilus

Acidophilus capsules provide specially cultured lactic bacterium.
These friendly bacteria are found in the upper digestive tract where their probiotic action helps to maintain healthy digestion, intestinal system, food breakdown & food metabolism. 1 or two capsules three times daily with meals.

Hydrotherarpy Benefits

Cleanse the Colon:

Toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently, but surely removed in the process of a series of treatments. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was intended to. In this very real sense a colonic is a rejuvenation treatment.

It Exercises the Colon Muscles:

The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves peristaltic (muscular contraction) activity by which the colon naturally moves material.

It Reshapes the Colon:

When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape, which in turn causes more problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques of the colon therapist helps to eliminate bulging pockets of waste and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state.

It Stimulates Reflex Points:

Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points, a colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.

Acid/Alkaline Balance – Our Diet

Our diet consists of acid-forming and alkaline-forming foods and if we want to stay healthy it is important to maintain the neutral pH-balance that our body enjoys.

Unfortunately, our diet is such that we consume far too much meat, fat and sugar (acid-forming) and not enough vegetables and fruit (alkaline-forming) and as a result many of us suffer from some of the following health problems:

GETTING IT RIGHT!

Our diet should consist of:

20-30% Acid-forming Foods & 70-80% Alkaline-forming Foods.
