What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a method of removing waste from the large intestine with out the use of drugs. By introducing filtered water in to the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated during a session.
What is a colon?
The Colon is also called the large intestine. It is separated in to three parts, ascending, transverse, descending and the sigmoid colon. It is a hollow tube-like organ made up of muscle structure that moves digested food along wavelike motion known as peristaltic action. The colon is the host of billion bacteria and content. In addition the colon removes water, salt, protein and some nutrients from forming stool.
Why should I be Concerned About my colon?
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about. A healthy colon produces Vitamin B, and K, and absorbed water. A healthy digestive tract helps support a healthy immune system.
How many Hydrotherapy sessions Does One need?
The number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual. Every person’s goal will be different. Just as some people exercise on daily or weekly bases to tone and tighten their outer body, some people also have their own ongoing cleaning, toning and rebuilding regimen for their inner body. Colon hydrotherapy could be used as part of any regular maintenance program. We recommend beginning with a series of section the more you hydrate the colon the more fecal matter you will release.
What is a colon hydrotherapy session like?
A session is a comfortable experience for most people. Techniques utilized allow a small amount of water to flow into the colon, gently stimulating the colon’s natural peristaltic action to release softened waste. The inflow of a small amount of water and the release of waste may be repeated several times. The removal of waste should encourage better colon function and elimination.
How can I prepare for a colon hydrotherapy cleansing?
Refrain from eating two hours prior to the colonic session and drink fluids.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are organisms such as bacteria and yeast that are believed to improve your health. They are healthy “good” bacteria that coexist with bad bacteria in the body. They improve intestinal function and maintain integrity of the lining in the intestine. Probiotics are naturally found in your body. You can also find them in some foods and supplements.
Are there any contradications?
Colon irrigation may not be for everyone please check with your physician or health care practitioner prior to the session. Contraindication include: recent abdominal or rectal surgery, severe hemorrhoids, rectum or colon cancer, congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, first and third trimester of pregnancy.
Can I use colonics to prepare for a colonoscopy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a very affective means of colon cleansing for preparation of a colonoscopy. A colonic session is a more pleasant experience than having to drink unpleasant chemical formula, which causes diarrhea.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT RELIEVE PAIN?
FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat to alleviate the pain and discomfort of arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT CONTROL WEIGHT?
Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process of sweating requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt, and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 F allowing the body to sweat out fats and toxins.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT PROVIDE THE SAME EFFECTS AS EXERCISE?
The heart receives a workout similar to a 6 mile run in a 20-30 minute FIR blanket session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6 mile run. Infrared blankets are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT ELIMINATE TOXINS?
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the processes sometimes too slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. FIR heat technology simply speeds up the body’s natural process!
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT IMPROVE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM?
Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system’s healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. FIR heat induces an “artificial fever” by heating up the body but without the pains of illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the “artificial fever”. Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT REDUCE STRESS?
Infrared heat loosens muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective treatments.
HOW DOES INFARED HEAT BENEFIT MY SKIN?
Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. All of these benefits lead to a more soft and firm complexion.
