ARE YOU A
TOXIC WASTE SITE?
by: Dr. Terri Hawkins
The most unimaginable, despised and
neglected part of the body, the colon, is the cause of wide spread,
degenerative diseases in modern civilization. In the treatment of every chronic disease and acute malady,
the colon must be considered. The
average colon in civilized communities is in a desperately deprived and
Colon Hydrotherapy, an effective method
for cleansing the large intestine, has been utilized for centuries as an
adjunct to proper exercise, plenty of water, nutrition and personal hygiene.
A few Colon Hydrotherapy
sessions may reverse what could be a lifetime of neglect.
Colon Hydrotherapy is clean and
relaxing. A soothing flow of
filtered, temperature-controlled water gently circulates throughout the colon,
coaxing your body to yield the digested toxins and waste that may have built up
inside. Colon Hydrotherapy is an
ancient, time-honored, gentle water cleansing of the colon. “Why cleanse the colon?”, you ask. “I never think about my colon. It’s the tail end of my digestive
tract, for heaven’s sake”. “Sounds
a bit gross, to tell the truth!”.
Well, think for a minute. If you’ve ever eaten junk food, fatty
food, sweets, caffeine, soda pop, chemically treated and preserved foods,
processed food, too much food, too little food, or, in fact, anything that
modern culture deems edible, you will benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy.
If you’ve ever been upset, under pressure,
depressed, confused, greatly disappointed, or just steamed at the jerk who cut
you off on the freeway, you will benefit from Colon Hydrotherapy.
Unfortunately, we take better care of our
city sewage system than our body’s.
The fact is, just like the city sewer, the miraculous five foot tube we
call the colon, or large intestine, determines whether or not the body is
polluted. When the daily rigors
and diets of modern life besiege us, the colon becomes the repository of
accumulated plaque and numerous, unhealthy toxins, which may disable the body’s
purification system. The useless
material ends up reentering our body’s blood stream, getting deposited in our
cells instead of passing on its way.
“Just a few Colon Hydrotherapy sessions may reverse
what could be a lifetime of neglect!”
Talk about Toxic
Waste! As a result, we feel and
act far below our potential.
Colon Hydrotherapy: What is it?
Hydrotherapy is referred to as colon irrigation, colonics, colon therapy, or
high enemas. All these are names
for colon hydrotherapy devices which use safe, filtered, temperature-controlled
water for inner cleansing. It is
the gentle infusion of filtered, temperature-controlled water, into the colon
by way of a sterile, disposable rectal tube or speculum. Water in – waste matter flushed out.
What is the Colon?
colon is the last (5) five feet of the digestive tract. It is a hollow, tube like organ made up
of muscle structure that moves digested food along by a wavelike motion known
as peristaltic action. The colon
is the living area for a host of bacteria that produce vitamins, such as K and
some B vitamins. The colon also
absorbs water, nutrients, proteins and cell salts back into the blood stream.
How can cleaning the Colon help?
colon is a reflex organ, meaning there are electrical connections to all other
parts and systems of the body.
When waste material has accumulated over a long period of time it breaks
down and becomes toxic. The body
responds by slowing down other functions. This causes constipation and sluggish bowel movements
which affect all other systems of the body.
What signs show inefficient elimination?
most miserable people on earth are people with inefficient elimination. Some of the signs of a toxic colon are:
coated tongue, fetid breath, sallow complexion, abnormal body odor, dark
circles under the eyes, cold hands and feet, brittle nails and hair, sagging
posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, chronic
headaches, irritability, nervousness, nausea, depression, asthma, and
What about water dehydration?
addition to the normal amount of absorption taking place in the colon, the body
absorbs extra water as needed at a rate the body sets.
Is the Colon the only organ that holds Toxic Waste?
No! Toxic Waste is found throughout the
body. When toxins cannot be
eliminated through the colon, liver, kidneys, perspiration or lungs, the body
must store them in the tissue of the body.
Some favorite spots for
storage are fat cells, joints, muscles, arteries, the liver and other organs.
If the lungs, liver, kidneys, and skin are also
eliminative organs, then why is Colon Hydrotherapy important?
Hydrotherapy works to soothe and tone the colon helping it to eliminate more efficiently. The function as a whole reduces the
burden on other organs and the lymphatic system which is our main line of
defense against harmful bacteria.
Will laxatives or enemas accomplish the same results?
clean out the lower part of the colon, enemas are fine. But, you are missing about four feet of
the colon. Laxatives are an
irritant to the body. Therefore,
the body produces a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and
leaves behind impacted toxins and waste.
How is Colon Hydrotherapy different?
Hydrotherapy is the gentle infusion of filtered, temperature-controlled water
into the colon, which fills the colon allowing impacted toxins and waste to be
Usually with an experienced therapist that
has been certified to use an FDA Device, more toxins and waste can be
eliminated by working the different meridians and pressure points, by
instructing you on breathing techniques, diet changes and the importance of
What can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is not a cure, but a valuable procedure used to assist the body
for a wide variety of different colon-related conditions. By re-toning the bowel wall &
improving colon functions, the entire body is able to function more

effects may be: sinus drainage, a loosening of mucus in the lungs, improved
range of motion, as well as skin tightening, feeling younger, posture
automatically improving, abdomen softening and getting smaller, relief from
headaches, less fatigue and improved bowel function.
The main benefit received by releasing the
toxic waste is that we remove he number one source of disease in the body. The bowel works more efficiently in the
elimination of waste, and nutrient absorption is improved.
Can you describe what a healthy, well-functioning
one feels the urge to eliminate and immediately honors the urge by a trip to
the toilet, elimination is quick and painless and will feel complete. Stools are medium to light brown, have
very little odor and will break up in the water.
What are the signs of a Colon that is not functioning
sufferers finally visit a physician, they usually relate a history of one or
more of these complaints that go back years: constipation, coated tongue, fetid
breath, sallow complexion, dark circles under the eyes, abnormal body odor,
cold hands and feet, blood pressure up or down, brittle nails and hair, sagging
posture (pot belly), tension, fatigue, allergies, indigestion, menstrual
problems, swelling of legs, asthma, backache, and loss of memory or
How many sessions are recommended?
books written by medical doctors that have done research in this area recommend
that a series of 12 colonics over a period of 6 weeks be done. The reason is for that is the human
body is exceptionally smart. When
we clean out the colon, the body starts pulling waste out of the tissue and
putting them into the bold stream.
The waste heads for the liver, then back to the colon.
Therefore, the second session on the
second day is necessary so that the digested waste is eliminated rather than
reabsorbed. The same reason applies
to the following weeks.
Why is my medical doctor unaware?
medical doctors treat the whole person - they are specialist in a particular
field. Their training is treating
symptoms of disease. Up
until about 1920, doctors had colon hydrotherapy devices in their offices. Then along came drugs, and from then on
it was easier to prescribe.
Colon Hydrotherapy is gaining
respectability and popularity.
Since year 2000, many physicians that are members and /or certified with
anti-aging networks are referring their patients for sessions.
Is there a danger from disease?
Colon Hydrotherapy Devices should have been through rigorous FDA testing and
inspections. Make sure the device
you use is FDA approved. Most
Colon Hydrotherapy facilities use disposable (one time use) nozzles or
What if I’m having my period?
Hydrotherapy is perfectly safe during this time, and will probably decrease the
cramps which accompany a period.
Can Colon Hydrotherapy improve the Bacteria balance in
(1) One way is to remove the toxins so the beneficial
bacteria has a cleaner house to live in.
(2) The second way is to reintroduce the Bifidus “Friendly
Bacteria” is available at most Health Food Stores.)
What is meant by a better nutritional
is the introduction of higher quality in place of lower quality nutrition.
Can you give an example?
a person replaces a protein rich food such as beef, pork, or chicken - the beef
may be considered the superior to pork, chicken is superior to beef and fish is
superior to chicken, because of its more rapid digestibility and lower
saturated fat content.
What is the best source of superior foods?
beans, lentils, or chick-peas, which are eaten at the same meal with
vegetables, are all superior in all the nutrients needed to rebuild health.
we go higher in the scale of quality we begin to include protein rich foods
which may be eaten in the natural state (RAW AND UNSALTED).
Can you summarize what you think about nutrition?
closer the food comes to the natural state in which it occurs, or the closer we
come to its raw un-fried form the higher its quality. In this condition all the enzymes are found intact. The amino acids are in their finest
form. The minerals, vitamins,
trace elements, carbohydrates and life forces are present. The life force, in turn is capable of
reproducing Healthy Tissue.
How else can I improve my nutritional program?
of the most important things you can do is to omit toxic substances such as
coffee, processed chocolate,
regular table salt, pepper, alcohol, and over the counter drugs, and synthetic
What is the relationship of quality foods, and Colon
Hydrotherapy to recovery from illness?
higher the quality of food we eat, the quicker we recover from most disease; provided
we are able to digest and assimilate it properly.
To this must be added the
(A) Proper food combining
(B) Proper order of eating the different kinds of food at
a meal, and
(C) A clean colon for proper absorption of nutrients and
elimination of waste.
What are the signs or symptoms when we first begin to
omit toxic substances and begin to clean out the colon?
a regular diet of stimulates such as coffee, processed chocolate, and others
are eliminated from your diet, some clients comment about headaches, and let
down and sometimes even mild depression.
This is usually when cleansing of the Colon helps. That is why Colon Hydrotherapy is
recommended with back to back sessions for a period of six weeks.
Why do the symptom or
This is due to the discard by the body of
the toxins which are removed from the tissue and then transported by the blood
to the liver and then the colon for eliminations.
All the symptoms generally pass by the
third or fourth session of Colon Hydrotherapy. Clients often tell me their energy level is very high after
the second session. Many even have
a great desire to Spring Clean!
Is Colon Hydrotherapy habit – forming?
Hydrotherapy retrains the muscle or the bowel to regain strength. After 12 or more sessions, many people
regain the normal bowel function of one movement per day. A healthy bowel may have two to three
bowel movements a day, depending on what you eat. Trouble is usually first recognized by an individual as
constipation or diarrhea. These
danger signs along with foul smelling stool and gas may be overlooked. Golden brown used to be considered the
normal color, but now that vegetables are recommenced, the color reflects the

may begin functioning normally.
Toxins will stop being distributed into the body and will begin being

impacted colon can cause discomfort, and cramping may occur as the colon
contracts to expel waste. Once the
major impaction is removed, many actually find a session pleasant.
Is it embarrassing?
NO. Your dignity is completely maintained
with proper draping in a private room.
The odor during your bowel movements does not exist with a FDA
Registered Colon Hydrotherapy Device!
What should I do before a session?
may feel more comfortable to refrain from eating one hour before your scheduled
appointment, but most will have no problem whether they eat or not. Drinking lots of good water and juice
is a great idea.
After a session, how might I feel?
people remark on how clean and light they feel. “Like I just took a bath on the

Will Colon Hydrotherapy help even though I have
suffered from constipation for a long time?
to Dr. John Kellogg, M.D., founder of Kellogg Cereals. “The cause of a disease so universal in
civilized communities must be very numerous to produce this condition in so
great a number of people living under many different conditions and with
different habits of life. In
general, it may be said that the cause of constipation are abnormal habits or
conditions of life, the result of what we call civilization. Primitive man rarely suffered from
Dr. Kellogg said adults are more likely to
suffer from constipation than children, although the malady begins early in
life. He further states that women
are more subject than men to intestinal activity. In fact, he said four-fifths of all women suffer from
constipation from their youth onward.
The several acts by which
the colon empties are:

points out more than twenty species of putrefactive bacteria which are found in

enormous quantities of offensive gas and highly active poison.

valuable procedure for a wide variety of many health problems. By re-toning bowel muscle and improving
bowel elimination, we remove the number one source of disease in the body.
In addition, we open up the bowel to a
more efficient means of waste elimination and nutrient absorption, both of
which are essential to any lasting healing process. This is also the first step towards normalizing the bowel so
that the friendly bacteria will return to keep the colon safe from putrefaction
and any further autointoxication.
Does Colon Hydrotherapy affect the electrolyte balance
in the body?
confusion about electrolyte depletion in Colon Hydrotherapy seems to stem from
one of two concepts. The first
being that a large amount of waste is equitable with diarrhea or vomiting, and
the second being that the body is being flooded with water, washing out or
diluting the electrolytes, as in water intoxification.
Does electrolyte balance affect diarrhea?
Diarrhea is a result of the lining of the
colon secreting large quantities of water and electrolytes in response to a
chemical reaction. The water and
accompanying electrolytes come from within the body, draining from the blood,
tissue and cells. Diarrhea is also
the result of rapid peristaltic action, which causes a drain of ions to the
muscles of the colon. Colon
Hydrotherapy does not pull water from the body or irritate the
bowel. A Colon Hydrotherapy
session and diarrheas are not similar.
Will the electrolyte balance be changed?
the 1989 study – “Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy on Serum Electrolytes”
conducted by National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Portland, OR., NO
patients experienced any clinically significant symptoms or disturbances.
Fluid & Electrolyte Mineral Balance
Since excessive diarrhea causes loss of
minerals and body fluids, one might assume ColonHydrotherapy may also.
Let’s see the differences:
Body Fluids: Diarrhea causes water loss without
replacement. Colon Hydrotherapy
allows an exchange of fluids, rehydrating instead of dehydrating.
Mineral Balance: As with regular bowel movements, there
is some mineral elimination. These
minerals are easily replaced at the next healthy meal. In everyday life there are many common
causes of electrolyte mineral loss such as the use of coffee, alcohol,
diuretics, medication, poor eating habits, stress, even perspiration.
recommendation is potassium-rich foods such as sunflower seeds, bananas,
potatoes, oranges, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, etc. and adequate
fluid intake daily.
Consider this: the kidneys
& the liver are the organs in charge of balancing minerals. They become overworked by intestinal
intoxication. Isn’t it safe to
believe that detoxification would facilitate and even improve their abilities
to manage and utilize minerals?
Intestinal Flora of “Friendly Bacteria”
bacteria (flora) are always present throughout the small & large
intestines. Colon Hydrotherapy
improves the bacteria “habitat” facilitating their reproduction and the
multiplication. Antibiotics are
the major cause of flora loss.
We’ve all used them and /or regularly ingested them, perhaps unwittingly,
in eating antibiotic-laden meat products, that re depleted of the necessary
Enzymes to digest them.
A CLEAN COLON PREVENTS DISEASE?
Irons, graduate of Yale, a leading authority & specialist on colon health,
“There is only one disease, and that disease is autointoxication, the body
poisoning itself…I’m convinced that unless you clean out your colon, you will
never regain vibrant health.”
A TOXIC COLON IS A FEEDER OF DISEASE!
Wesley Wiltsie, M.D., author of many books on the Colon states: “the principle
fact of free drainage is that infection tends to disappear when drainage is
adequate, and in the absence of a feeder.”
“PUTREFYING WASTE CAN LEAD TO PRECANCEROUS CONDITIONS
IN THE COLON.”
Kennedy, M.D. from California wrote that he is convinced, that the great
increase in colon cancer over the past few generations is also due to autointoxication
in the colon. He concludes that
putrefying waste material causes autointoxication and leads to dangerous
precancerous conditions in the colon.
Dr. Kennedy connects the effects of toxicity to other ailments seemingly
unrelated to the bowel. In his
view, these are problems which, because of ignorance of a sick bowel as the
root cause, medical doctors of all specialties find difficult to treat
successfully. He says the
prevention of disease begins with a Colon Hydrotherapy cleansing program!
Colon Hydrotherapy is NOT a cure-all, but
may ease your pain. Within us,
there is a power that controls the heartbeat, makes the blood flow, enables us
to hear with our ears, and see with our eyes, controls the lungs allowing
oxygen to enter our body as we breathe, and keeps brain functioning.
This strange power will renew diseased
cells in any organ or part of the body which has gone haywire,
it will cleanse the cells, purify the blood, give life to the digestive system
and once again make life worth living.
It is believed that all forms of disease
are due to the same cause!!!!! Autointoxication!
That means due to long
term accumulation of toxic waste material in the body.
This toxic waste has been building up for
years and years – due to our living habits. Improper health care of our bodies interferes with our nervous
systems ability to handle worry, overwork excesses and abuse of all kinds.
Colon Hydrotherapy allows the body to be
free or rid the body of Toxic waste.
Our body is always striving for the ultimate goal no matter how ill we
treat it and that goal is peace and balance of our mind, body and spirit!
