Colon hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs. By introducing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis. This process is repeated a few times during a session.
Many clients have reported extreme weight-loss, more energy, clearer skin and eyes, increased elimination through the kidneys, skin and bowel, relief from gas, and a toned and better working bowel which in turn upgrades our general feeling of good health, and may even reduce your risks for colon cancer.
Some of the benefits of colonics are:
· Increases the body’s absorption of vitamins and nutrients
· Kick-starts weight loss
· Increases energy, fertility and improves concentration
· Maintains pH balance in the bloodstream
· Makes the digestive system more effective, regular, and prevents constipation
Do I need to do anything in preparation for my colonic?
At The Griffin Pain Relief Clinic, we recommend as preparation for your colon cleanse not having anything to eat for at least 2 hours prior to your session, although drinking water or fresh juice is not a problem. For better cleansing results you may eliminate certain foods such as red meats and dairy, and eat plenty of high fibre foods 24 to 48 hours prior, although this is not required.
Is there anyone who should not have a colonic?
There are certain instances when one should not have a colonic. If you have had abdominal surgery within the past 6 months, intestinal perforation, renal insufficiency, the presence of tumors or cysts, first and last trimester of pregnancy, colon or rectal surgery, abdominal hernia, ulcerative colitis, chrohns disease, diverticulitis, congestive heart failure.
Is colon hydrotherapy safe?
Provided you do not have any of the contraindications provided above, colonics are perfectly safe. We use disposable equipment, so there is no risk of contamination. Our system is a passive gravity system. There is no force or pressure used during your session. Water flows gently into the colon and works against the strength of your colon
Does it hurt?
A colonic is not at all painful. A small disposable speculum is gently inserted only a couple of inches into the rectum. The most you may feel is a bit of cramping, similar to what you may feel when you have to have a bowel movement. Many people however, experience no cramping at all.
Will colon hydrotherapy remove healthy bacteria from my colon?
Ideally, your colon should have 80% good bacteria to 20% unhealthy bacteria. Due to the unhealthy foods we eat, our current environment, and the stresses we deal with everyday, for most people this is reversed, leaving us with much more unhealthy bacteria than healthy. This leads to so many digestive and other health issues such as obesity, weight loss problems or possibly cancer symptoms. With too much of the bad stuff, the good stuff cannot proliferate. Colon Hydrotherapy removes unhealthy bacteria, and a little bit of the healthy as well – by cleansing the colon of the unhealthy bacteria, this leaves a nice clean breeding ground for the good stuff to grow! We also provide an oral probiotic for you after your session to assist with this.
