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 dangerous condition.

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?

Colon 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?

The 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?

The 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?

The 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 backaches.

What about water dehydration?

In 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?

Colon 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?

To 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?

Colon Hydrotherapy is the gentle infusion of filtered, temperature-controlled water into the colon, which fills the colon allowing impacted toxins and waste to be removed.

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 food combining.

What can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon 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 efficiently.

What other benefits may I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?

Common 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 bowel is?

When 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.
