Understanding Colon Hydrotherapy

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Colon Therapy?

A healthy colon is essential to a healthy body.  Conventional diets comprised
of refined processed food, high in saturated fats and low in fiber contribute
to many problems associated with the large intestine.

The elimination of undigested food materials and other waste products
are as important as the digestion and assimilation of foodstuffs.
Waste material allowed to remain stagnant in the colon results in decomposition
of these substances and increased bacteria and their toxins.

The colon contains the largest concentration of bacteria in the body.
These bacteria provide important functions such as the synthesis of 
folic acid, B-vitamins and vitamin K from foods.   Bacillus coli and acidophilus
comprise the majority of the healthy bacteria in the colon along with other disease-
producing bacteria in small numbers. 

Waste material allowed to stagnate alters the proportion of healthy bacteria to
disease-producing bacteria - Thus, the potential for disease exists.    These bacteria
decompose proteins and carbohydrates resulting in the production of toxins.
Some of these toxins are thought to be absorbed and may be a potential source
of disease elsewhere in the body.

The purpose of the colon as an eliminative organ is to remove waste material
by mass muscular contractions called peristalsis.  Colon Hydrotherapy provides
therapeutic improvement of muscular tone, facilitating peristalsis and benefiting
the atonic (sluggish) colon.    The effect of a stagnant colon can be manifested in 
many ways;  some of the most common being in the form of constipation, halitosis
 (bad breath), skin blemishes, headaches, low back pain and lack of energy.
