WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY OR COLONIC IRRIGATION?
BY ANNA PAREDES PRESIDENT OF ACHA - COLON THERAPIST IN SYDNEY
Colon Therapists working in registered clinics offer the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing called Colonic Irrigation or Colon Hydrotherapy. Colonic Irrigation incorporates a 5-step process in one treatment. Three to six colonics, depending on the system of colon cleansing used is recommended to successfully clean six feet of Large Intestine, often referred to as the bowel or colon. During this time your detox programme is successfully supporting your body and liver to continue to bring forward toxins distributing them within the colon ready for elimination by irrigation. Once the impacted material is removed, off the colon wall, your colon can begin again to co-operate as it was meant to, removing waste product more efficiently and completely. In a sense, a colonic is a whole body rejuvenation treatment.
A colonic will cleanse the colon, by removing toxic material after it is broken down by the water. Assisted by a full abdominal massage, which is done manually by the therapists hands, the therapist can feel where the impacted matter and blockages are and enable the movement of mass towards the elimination canal (the rectum). Once eliminated it is no longer harmful to your body or inhibits assimilation of food and elimination.
The colonic will exercise your colon muscles. Over time throughout your life, toxic debris builds up on the wall of the colon consequently weakening the colon muscles and impairing its function. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves the peristaltic action (your own muscle contraction), this will enable you to speed up your own transit time of fecal material in elimination once the colon muscles have been toned, strengthened, and rejuvenated.
It reshapes the colon. No one person has a perfect shape colon, one exception could be a newborn baby. When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape and structure. The gentle action of the water accompanied with the massage techniques and experience of the colon therapist, help to eliminate bulging pockets of waste. Over time this can result causing narrowed spastic constrictions. Fortunately removal of this waste can enable the colon to resume its natural state once again.
Stimulation of Reflex points within the body. Every organ system and organ is connected to the colon by reflex points, as seen on the Norman Walker chart in your treatment room. The colonic stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues, and glands in a beneficial way (similar to Reflexology).
The colonic hydrates your entire body. As you probably know by now our body is made up of 60-70% of water. With the use of pure water in the colonic, our body is able to absorb much needed clean and pure water to hydrate each cell of the body so that they can function at a higher rate as well as dilute the toxins already present within the body.
After each colonic treatment you will notice the skin as well as other organs of elimination like the lungs, kidneys, liver, skin and colon, functioning efficiently in eliminating skin problems like eczema, acne, and psoriasis. You will also notice clear, brighter eyes, not forgetting to mention a flatter stomach region and my favorite one of all a clear mind and head. A clean body will promote a clear mind, good thoughts and actions, attracting like-minded people to you.
Stress is alleviated in our daily life. We are able to function a lot better with our daily routines and complete our day with better sleeping patterns and our priorities are clearly set aside. This is ideal for the change of lifestyle and philosophy that you have chosen in deciding to strengthen your immune system and lengthen your life.
