Colon hygiene!?! If you are new to bowel cleansing you are probably saying, "What the . . . I bathe, shower, etc. daily I'm fine!" You are correct - I don't smell you - BUT how does your digestive system feel about it? Do you have any of these symptoms:
constipation - diarrhea
gas, bloating, cramping, pain
catch everything that comes along; colds, flu, etc.
These are just a few areas that bowel cleansing touches on.
Bowel cleansing is not a new procedure ~ Enemas and rituals involving the washing of the colon with water have been used since pagan times. The record mentioning colon cleaning is an Egyptian medical papyrus dated as early as 1500 B.C., which shows that the Egyptians employed purgatives, enemas, diuretics, heat, steam and blood-letting to treat diverse diseases.
Colon hygiene made it's way to the USA ~ The popularity of colon cleansing was remarkable in the early 20th century, and colonic irrigation machines were commonly seen. During the 1920's and 1930's, enemas were regularly used as a standard practice among physicians and implemented as a common treatment in most hospitals. Enema therapy declined in the 50's, but colon hygiene became popular again at the end of the 20th century, and has continued to flourish in both popular and alternative culture.
If you have ever had colon hygiene you know the amazement!
Many people say they feel illuminated, awakened, light, and open-minded in new ways they never imagined after receiving colon hygiene. That is because the process is not traumatic, it's actually very relaxing. Why? Because it is a gentle flow of water going in, water and waste moving out! It's referred to as "continuous flow." Woods Gravity system is "No hold and explode" like other devices, this is a more gentle but yet powerful enema. Not only is it wonderful for the digestive track, but also for our emotional state as well. A spiritual thing happens on the table for some people. Not only does colon hygiene help tone the bowel and improve peristalsis it also releases bottled up emotions that we have not yet digested; if you know what I mean!?! and down the drain they go as well. Not bad right!?!; getting rid of two birds with one stone!
Because we are a society that swallows our feelings, and pushes them down inside for no one to see, hear and feel - what better way to rid our body of these toxic enablers - out with the waste you go bad ju-ju! Let the freedom reign!!!
Come learn why this experience is amazing and see for yourself the health benefits. I promise it's nothing like you think and better than you'd ever imagine!

What is a colon?
Your colon, or large intestine as you may be more familiar with, is an organ that is approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The colon functions to eliminate waste and conserve water.
What is Colon Hygiene?
It is a safe, effective method of cleansing the colon of impacted, putrefied waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with sterile water, using a gravity flow method . Impacted toxic materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-producing vitamins and can also inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time, constipation – resulting in further disorders, such as BAD BREATH, FATIGUE, SINUS, HEADACHES, BODY ODOR, GAS, NAUSEA, SCIATIC PAIN, LOW ENERGY, VOMITING, CONFUSION, SKIN BLEMISHES, DIZZINESS, IRRITABILITY, BACKACHE etc.
Yes. In fact it’s very cleansing. However, one caveat to consider is that if you tend to get heavy periods with severe cramping, this can work one of two ways. One, we get blood flow going and it helps to alleviate the cramping and cleanse the system. Or, it can exacerbate the cramping if you tend to have disabling cramps. So, depending on how your monthly cycle works, consider the above. However, either way, it’s not contraindicated. You will, however, need to use a tampon during the session.
1. Having a bowel movement shortly after each meal.
2. Elimination should be easy and take no more than a few seconds.
3. Stools should be long, large in diameter, light brown in color, without offensive odor and should float or sink very slowly.
4. When the toilet is flushed, stools should immediately begin breaking apart by the action of water movement.
Why is Colon Hygiene so important?
While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and rejuvenated, the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colonic Hydrotherapy has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
What will Colon Hygiene do for my colon?
It cleanses the colon by breaking down toxic material and removing it. It exercises the colon muscles which has been weakened by toxic buildup – improving the peristaltic activity – this will help speed up transit time of fecal material. It reshapes the colon. When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape and structure, causing narrowing, strictures and spasm. It stimulates reflex points. Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points (similar to reflexology). Colon Hygiene stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues and glands in a beneficial way. It hydrates the body – allowing the body to be able to absorb much needed fluids, hydrating the cells of the body to function at optimum levels as well as diluting toxins already in the body. The solar plexus is the emotional center of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left incomplete, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus which affects all organs of the area, including the colon. The ongoing tightening of the colon muscle results in diminished movement of fecal material through the colon, which is experienced as constipation. Therefore, not only does Colon Hygiene help in alleviating constipation, it also assists in recognizing and releasing the stored emotions causing the problem.
Is a Colon Hygiene painful?
It rarely is. Usually painful or uncomfortable experiences are the result of resistance and tension. A skilled professional is able to put you at ease and minimize discomfort. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter, clean, and clear afterward.
How many Colon Hygiene treatments are needed?
During your first sessions of treatments, a minimum of six colonics will be needed to begin the elimination of years of toxic waste build up.
Is Colon Hygiene embarrassing?
Not at all. You will be in a private room with a therapist who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the procedure. You will do all the necessary preparation yourself – without the intervention of the therapist – and then lying back on the bed – fully covered – while the water gently washes the colon – eliminating the waste. In fact, it is a euphoric experience!
What should I do to prepare prior to having a Colonic?
It is best not to eat anything and to drink lightly two hours before your session. Having a bowel movement prior to your session is certainly not essential but if you do feel the need to do so, emptying the rectum with a bowel movement just prior to the colonic saves time and permits more to be accomplished.
What can I expect after a Colonic?
Most people remark about how great, light and clean that they feel. If your body is extremely toxic, you may feel fatigued as old toxins that have been stored throughout your body are now re-circulating into the colon. For some, the colonic may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours, but there won't be any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort. It's also possible you may feel light-headed or chilled for a few moments following a colonic.
Are Colonics dangerous in any way?
Being an essentially natural process a skilled therapist will exercise extra care with the elderly who is severely constipated, the pregnant woman and all other diseases of the colon. Colon Hygiene is not performed on a person with active ulcers or following a recent colon surgery. Please see Contraindications below for full list.
Will a Colonic Hygiene upset my electrolyte balance?
Electrolytes are minerals in the body (mainly sodium and potassium salts) that maintain the proper electrical charge and pH in the various organs and tissues of the body. The pH electrical balance in the colon is very near neutral, ideally being slightly acid. A strong acid or alkaline environment is not necessary because digestion does not take place in the colon. Rather, the major function of the colon is to re-absorb the fluid and electrolytes from the unformed stool and passing only the solid waste out via the rectum.
Will One session completely empty the colon?
Unfortunately it will not. Many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces that has hardened, and is a rubbery or wallpaper-like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. One session will remove some of the stagnant waste – the second and subsequent treatments will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives. Your trained therapist will advise you on your personal condition.
Will this benefit me as part of my fasting program?
Yes. Whenever you do anything that increases the rate at which toxins enter the bloodstream, it is essential that you eliminate whatever you can through the colon. If you do not – you may unnecessarily experience increase discomforts of toxemia (poisons in the bloodstream). A knowledgeable Colon Hygienist can be of great assistance during any cleansing program.
After my colon is clean…. Then what?
Once the colon is clean, it would be ideal to keep it that way. Diet change and regular exercise is very important. Your Colon Hygienist can help you form a diet and exercise plan that will support a healthy colon. Due to our busy lifestyles and daily stresses, it is advised to schedule periodic maintenance cleansing sessions.
