Benefits

By cleansing the colon of impacted and putrefactive fecal matter, colonics may offer relief from a variety of disturbances.   Fatigue, gas, headaches, irritability, skin problems, cold hands and feet, and depression are among the symptoms relieved by colon cleansing.  With Colon Irrigation, your sense of well-being is often dramatically improved.

You feel lighter and more energetic. The body can again take nourishment from food and defend itself against disease.  Colon Hydro-Therapy effectively removes stagnant fecal material from colon walls, preventing the buildup of these bacterial toxins in the portal and lymphatic system, resulting in a reduced load on the liver.  In addition, the treatment removes mucous, gas, parasites, and cellular debris facilitating peristaltic action and better absorption of nutrients.

The natural cleansing process effectively resolves the symptoms directly and indirectly related to dysfunctions of the large intestine.  

Bacteria are involved in the production of several vitamins which are absorbed by the large intestine and stored in the liver (vitamins K and some of the B vitamins). In addition to vitamins, the colon absorbs large amounts of water.  Unfortunately, toxins of bacterial metabolism also enter the circulatory system. These toxins (Indol, Skatol, Phenol, etc.) are treated by the liver and excreted by the kidneys.  Colon bacteria ferment starches releasing hydrogen and methane gases which are absorbed and excreted through the lungs.   Thus, halitosis may be a symptom of a stagnant fermenting colon.  

Intestinal toxemia may further result in conditions such as headaches, allergies, irritability, malnutrition and can potentially lead to an overall lowering of an individual’s immunological defense mechanism.Intestinal stasis can enhance the systemic absorption of bacterial and their toxins.  The prolonged retention of food residues, bile, etc., results in increased numbers of parasitic bacteria present in the colon.  Some of the colon’s normal flora may become pathogenic under stagnant or putrefactive conditions.  For example, streptococcus and staphylococcus, which are part of the normal flora of the large intestine, could enter the systemic circulation and become a source of desease.
