The average foods transit time of a person on a Standard American Diet (low fiber) diet is 65-100 hours. The average transit time for a person with a high fiber diet is 20-45 hours. This slow-moving food produces excess mucous that literally sticks to the intestinal walls, weighing the intestinal tract down with pounds of decaying fecal matter. The person on the Standard American Diet holds about eight meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon, while person on the high fiber diet holds only about three.
Some people claim to have lost up to 20 pounds over the course of a month. A colon cleansing can result in significant weight loss and kick-start your metabolism, as well as refocus your attention on better food choices and whole-body wellness.
Decreases risk of colon cancer
Periodic cleansing of the colon would dilute the toxin concentration in the large intestine. All that you eat, drink, breathe in and absorb through your skin end up being processed by your gastrointestinal system and liver. If that is not forced from your colon and liver as quickly as possible, it can be stored in your body's systems. By releasing stagnant body waste, you may reduce possible causes and the risk of autointoxication, polyps, cysts and cancerous growths in your colon and gastrointestinal tract.
Helps relieve or decrease constipation
Constipation is one of the most frequent health complaints in the Western world. When it's chronic —constipation causes a sluggish digestive system, which in turn leaves toxic material in the system longer. To ignore that situation could be very dangerous. When stool sits inside the colon too long, toxins may be reabsorbed back into the body, which may be experienced as headaches, sweating, feeling bloated, nausea, body pain, sleeping problems and problems focusing, these can accompany constipation. If this is the regular state, the constipation becomes chronic, partly because the good bacteria die off as the bad ones flourish - and good bacteria go together with regular bowel movements. This increases the likelihood that toxins could be released into the bloodstream. It can also be a cause of other illnesses and irritations, such as hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
The skin is the second largest elimination organ. If there are problems with your skin, it is probably that your first largest elimination organ, the colon, is overloaded. If you are suffering from any type of skin problems, psoriasis, acne, eczema, the first step is to clear out all your accumulated waste matter .Often caused by toxic overload resulting from the body not eliminating effectively. Toxins in the colon are re-absorbed and may be pushed out by the body through the skin resulting in acne or spots on the back. Colon Hydrotherapy takes the pressure of the other eliminatory organs and leads to skin clearing naturally. Deep body cleansing and detoxing should bring about a huge improvement rapidly. Colonics have been referred to as "the natural botox" due to the instant uplifting effects which they have on the skin, particularly between and around the eyes.
You should experience following benefits:
- Brighter, glowing and fresher skin complexion
- Clearer skin and eyes
- Skin conditions will start to clear up
- Reduces the effects of ageing
- Healthier skin and hair
- Acne, psoriasis and other skin problems usually show a dramatic improvement
Help reduce stress and lose weight
Stress will cause an increase in acid production and a decrease in the digestive process of our food. Stress will contribute to a toxic buildup in the gastro-intestinal tract . This will compromise the physiological function of the intestinal nervous system.
Stress levels have an absolute direct effect on weight gain. Too much constant adrenalin in the body (to modern day living) increases the hormone called cortisol in our blood. This in turn causes your insulin levels to increase. Too much insulin causes the body to store fat especially in the abdominal region. Going for a few treatments of colon hydrotherapy can help you to speed up the detox process and to move any excess cortisone.
Improves whole-body well-being Ridding the colon of waste and toxins by releasing layers of colon buildup can lead to feelings of lightness, strength and overall good health.rebuilding strength, until the body is ready (such reactions happen very rarely).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. Is Colon Hydrotherapy safe?
Yes, with certified Colon Hydrotherapist and professional equipment. At Body Cleansing & Colon Hydrotherapy Clinic we are using one of the safest colon hydrotherapy machine on the market, the AQUANET EC 2000. This unit is regulated by safety guidelines mandated by Health Canada, the FDA, the European Health Authority, as well as those of many other countries. The Aquanet has an adapter & shut-off mechanism (Applied Pressure Sensing Technology or in short APST – patent pending) that never allows it to exert a harmful pressure on your colon. In addition the water used during the treatment is double filtered and UV sterilized. All equipment that touches your body is fully hygienic and disposable.
2. Can you describe what happens during a colonic at Body Cleansing & Colon Hydrotherapy Clinic?
When you come in for a treatment, the therapist will spend a few minutes asking you some questions about your health & digestion. You will change into different clothing or towel which the therapist will provide. You lie on the treatment table while the therapist assists you in gently inserting a small, disposable speculum into your rectum, which allows you to be connected to the colon hydrotherapy unit. The therapist then controls the unit to allow warm, filtered water to flow gently in and out of your colon, carrying out waste material. It is normal to feel some new or odd sensations during a session, but it is not commonly painful.
3. How many sessions will I need?
That will be determined by your therapist based on your medical history, age, your primary health concerns, and how you respond to your first session.
It is recommended to have an initial series of 6 or more colonics performed at least once a week. It takes a person about 6 to 12 colonics to see the plaque loosen up and be eliminated.
“Kevin Trudeau - Natural Cures "They don't want you to know about”
"How to Never Get Sick Again" 1. “Get 15 colonics in 30 days: Right know as you read this there is an excellent chance that you have between three and fifteen pounds of undigested fecal matter stuck in your colon. This waste matter is highly toxic, suppressing your immune system, potentially causing gas, bloating and constipation, dramatically reducing the assimilation of nutrients, and slowing your metabolism. Getting a series of fifteen colonics over a thirty-day period is one of the most important steps in cleansing and detoxifying your body. Most people lose between three and fifteen pounds simply by doing this procedure. Your hair, skin, and nails will begin to radiate a healthy glow. Your energy levels can sky-rocket, depression, stress, anxiety and fatigue are usually dramatically reduced or eliminated. Food cravings are reduced or vanish completely."
Many clients experience how their body function better and after our treatments they keep cleansing their system on a regular basis. Colon Hydrotherapy becomes an important part of their basic health and a hygienic lifestyle.
4. What should I do to prepare for my colonic?
You can have a successful colonic without any special preparations beforehand, but it is best to avoid heavy food for a few hours before your treatment. If you are hungry eat a piece of fruit or vegetable and some raw nuts to keep your blood sugar up. It is also helpful to avoid refined foods (white flour, white sugar, table salt, processed fats) for a few days before. A tablespoon of olive oil one or two nights before your treatment, and a glass of warm water with the juice of half a fresh organic lemon the morning of your treatment can help make it more effective.
5. Can I eat normally after my colonic?
Your therapist or supervising physician may make some dietary suggestions based on your response to your colonic. After your treatment, it is best to avoid roughage for the rest of the day as this may cause gas cramps. Focus on slightly steamed vegetables, some lean protein (white meat, not red) and if you like something raw - vegetable juice made from carrot, celery and greens is usually also well tolerated. The next day you can resume a normal diet.
6. Will I need to go to the bathroom many times after my colonic?
It’s normal to experience a few bowel movements immediately after your treatment, but you won’t have to be running to the toilet all day. At our Wellness Center your therapist will allow plenty of time for you to use the toilet after your session before you leave the clinic. Most people feel fine within a few minutes after their session.
7. How about the friendly bacteria in the intestines, are they flushed out?
First of all, friendly bacteria is working properly in a clean environment. Even though some are flushed out with the treatment, they multiply quickly when they have space to do so. Most colons are filled with morbid matter of different kinds that crowd out the friendly bacteria in the colon to start with. The best win/win situation you get, when you supplement probiotics after a colonic treatment, when there is room for them to multiply!
8. Are there any contraindications?
- Cancer of the colon or GI tract
- Acute abdominal pain
- Recent heart attack
- Recent history of GI bleeding
- General debilitation
- Congestive heart failure
- Vascular aneurysm
- Uncontrolled hypertension
- Renal insufficiency
- History of seizures

-Fissures or Fistula
- Abdominal hernia

9. How I will feel after Colon Hydrotherapy?
Some people feel cold, hungry, weak or thirsty after treatment. This is normal, as the colon has done a lot of work in a short period of time. If you feel weak afterward, try having a cup of herbal tea with honey to increase blood sugar and supply minerals. If hungry, eat a banana or drink a cup of vegetable broth. The potassium and other minerals will restore the electrolyte balance.
The regular pattern of bowel function may be interrupted and may even cease temporarily. However regular bowel habits will return once peristalsis is re-established through the movement of food/chime etc. in the digestive tract. You may help this condition by eating some dried figs or prunes or in the summer some apricots, peaches or plums. However, the consumption of raw fruits (with the exception of bananas) should only be resumed one day after a colonic. A gentle more cooked diet on the day of the colonic is recommended to avoid gas cramps. In general however, a cleansing diet will consist mainly of raw vegetables and fruits.
Some people may feel bloated for a few treatments. This may be a result of old stool and waste matter being re-hydrated. Either quick succession colonics or the addition of an herbal colon cleanse will speed up the process of eliminating this condition. For temporary relief you can rub some therapeutic grade peppermint oil on your abdomen and feet. Also drinking several cups a day of a warm tea made of fresh ginger and fennel seeds, peppermint or digestive tea can be helpful.
Important: All our recommendations are based on your health condition, food allergies and sensitivities!!!
Most people feel wonderful and energized after colonic. However, for some people various degrees of feeling ill may be the body's way of eliminating toxins. When the colon begins to cleanse and old putrefactive material begins to re-hydrate, there is often a re-absorption of toxic substances into the bloodstream. As a result the client may experience nausea, flu-like aches, headache, fever, dizziness, water retention, lethargy, aching joints and depression. They are an indication that internal cleansing is taking place. Rest, ample fluid take a warm bath, a cup of peppermint, fennel or camomile tea or the application of therapeutic grade peppermint oil may bring relief. And so will patience.
Rest assured: A Healthier, Happier You is in the making!
As long as a "crisis" remains within the level of tolerance, we welcome it. However, if it is too acute, we will temporarily reduce our cleansing efforts and focus on rebuilding strength, until the body is ready (such reactions happen very rarely).
