Many experts claim that the bowel is the hub of the human body. They also claim that toxic build-up in the bowel is a precursor to various types of health issues. Dr. Bernard Jensen states: “Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and tissues. It is the bowel that must be cared for first”.
Proper bowel function entails having two to three good bowel movements per day. Most people are not aware of this, and go through their daily lives eliminating once a day, once every other day, or less.
The longer material remains in the colin, the more moisture is absorbed from it, and the more dry and pressed together it becomes.
When we don’t eliminate our waste, toxins back up in the colon, which can cause auto-intoxication or self-poisoning by maintaining a cesspool of decaying matter in its colon. The toxins released by the decay process get into the bloodstreem and travel to all parts of the body. Every cell in the body gets affected, and many forms of sickness can result. Because it weakens the entire system, autointoxication can be a causative factor for nearly any disease.
The most common causes of toxicity:
Poor Elimination – The colon is your body’s sewage system. If your sewage system backs up, toxins become trapped in your colon. These toxins are fermenting and decaying in the colon, often being re-absorbed into the bloodstream, polluting our tissues and cells.
Poor Diet – Poor diet includes dead, cooked, devitalized, processed, low fiber or fried foods, etc. This type of diet sets the stage for intestinal problems. These foods, unlike live foods (fresh fruits and vegetables), lack the proper enzymes to assist in proper digestion and assimilation, and lack the fiber to assist in proper elimination. They are also lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, and other basic nutrients.
Over-Consumption – Over-eating puts a great amount of stress on our digestive system. The body must produce saliva, hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes, bile, and other digestive factors to process a meal. When we over-eat, the digestive system cannot always meet the demands placed upon it. The stomach bloats as the digestive system goes into turmoil. Foods are not properly broken down and tend to lodge in the lower intestines. Vital nutrients are NOTcompletely absorbed.
Lack of Water – Water makes up 65 to 75% of the human body. Water cleanses the inside of the body as well as the outside. It is instrumental in flushing out wastes and toxins. When the body is not receiving enough water, toxins tend to stagnate, hindering all digestive and eliminative processes. Drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day is highly recommended.
Antibiotics – Purpose of ATB is to eliminate unhealthy bacteria in the body; bacteria that causes illness. However, antibiotics also suppress the healthy, good bacteria, which prevent yeast overgrowth and suppression of the immune system. This puts the digestive and eliminative systems out of balance, creating problems in the colon as well as in the entire intestinal tract.
Stress – Stress affects every cell and tissue in the human body by breaking down the immune system and all of the major organs. It robs the body of important vitamins and minerals, and over time, can cause severe acid build-up. Stress hinders the proper digestion, absorption, and elimination of foods by throwing the digestive system out of balance. The worst thing a person can do is to eat a meal while experiencing extreme stress. Nutrients will not be absorbed.
Lack of Exercise – Exercise strengthens the entire body. It stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic system, building muscles, nerves, lungs, heart, brain, mind, and mood. Blood is pumped throughout the body by the heart, but lymphatic fluid depends solely on exercise to be circulated. Exercise is very important. Lack of exercise lowers metabolic efficiency, and without circulatory stimulation, the body’s natural cleansing systems are weakened.
A real cleansing process should be one that reaches every cell in the body.
Our cleansing program is unique and include:
- colon hydrotherapy
- colonic herbal irrigation
- cleansing herbal formulas
- healing food consultation to support body cleansing and improve digestion of the nutrients
- food supplements to reduce nutritional deficiencies
- restoration and implantation on friendly intestinal flora
- acupuncture to relieve mental-emotional stress and abdominal pain.
Colon Hydrotherapy (clonic) cleanses the colon: Toxic materials are broken down and removed so they can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Even debris built up over a long period is gently but surely removed in the process of a series of irrigations. Once impacted material is removed, your colon can begin again to function as it was meant to. Colon Hydrotherapy is a whole body rejuvenation treatment.
Colon Hydrotherapy (colonic) exercises the Colon Muscles: The buildup of toxic debris weakens the colon muscles and impairs its functioning. The gentle filling and emptying of the colon improves the peristaltic activity (muscular contraction) by which the colon naturally moves material. This will help speed up the transit time of fecal material once the colon muscles have been toned, strengthened, and rejuvenated.
Colon cleanse reshapes the Colon: When conditions exist in the colon, they alter its shape and structure, which in turn cause more health problems. The gentle action of the water, coupled with the massage techniques and experience of the colon therapist, help eliminate pockets of waste and eventually narrowed, spastic constriction, finally enabling the colon to resume its natural state. Other manipulative and massage techniques can help to reshape the colon structure over time.
Colon Hydrotherapy (aka colonic, colon cleanse, colon irrigation, high colonic, hydrocolonic, colon cleansing, colonic therapy) hydrates the body: Our bodies are made up of 65-75% water and with the use of pure water in the colonic; our bodies are able to absorb much needed clean and pure water to hydrate the cells of the body.
