The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract. Its primary functions are to eliminate waste, conserve water and reabsorb electrolytes and minerals. Also, there are bacteria living in the colon that synthesize valuable nutrients such as vitamins “K” and portions of the “B” complex.Waste material that has remained in the colon for some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucus, parasites, worms, etc.), poses several problems. This material is quite toxic. These poisons can reenter and circulate in the bloodstream, making us feel weak, tired, or ill. Also, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. A buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action, causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time, and constipation.However, there is a form of colon cleanse called colon hydrotherapy to alleviate this congestion and buildup of unwanted waste materials:
Colon Hydrotherapy (aka colonic, colon cleanse, colon irrigation, high colonic, colon cleansing, colonic therapy) is the safe, gentle infusion of warm purified water into the rectum using no chemicals or drugs. This is a restorative, painless procedure that is both relaxing and effective. The individual lies comfortably on a custom treatment table and inserts a small speculum into the rectum. The therapist then monitors the temperature of the water infused into and out of the colon (large intestine). The entire procedure takes approximately 45 minutes. The colon hydrotherapy method cleanses the entire colon without stressing the individual. The instrument features disposable components which eliminate any possible contamination from a previous treatment and is a closed system in which waste material is eliminated through the instrument and out a drain line, avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual.

Why is Colon Hydrotherapy so effective? Colon Hydrotherapy 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 cleanse is a whole body rejuvenation treatment.
Colon Hydrotherapy 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 Cleanse (aka colonic, colon hydrotherapy, colon irrigation, high colonic, 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. Read “Water Can Undermine Your Health” by Norman Walker, D.S., to get a full account of what water does within our bodies.
Is there anything you need to do to get ready for Colon Hydrotherapy? Since your abdomen will be massaged it is a good idea to eat or drink lightly in the two hours immediately preceding a colonic.
What can you expect afterwards? Most likely, you’ll feel great. You will feel lighter and enjoy a sense of well-being. Any activity you would ordinarily do such as work or exercise is fine. For some, the Colon Cleanse may trigger several subsequent bowel movements for the next few hours; but there usually is not any uncontrollable urgency or discomfort.
Are colonics dangerous in any way? Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with colon cleansing. Side effects of colon hydrotherapy are very rare and mild. Our intent is to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic has existed in San Francisco Bay Area since 1996. Since then, we have performed more than 80 thousands of colon cleansing hydrotherapy sessions. We have helped thousands of people to improve their health. We value our clients very highly and are determined to provide them with the best services possible.
Will a colon cleanse make me constipated or give me diarrhea? The most frequent post colonic experience is to have a slight delay in bowel movements and then a resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. This is not due to the colonic, but rather to the weakness of the muscles in the colon, and should be interpreted as an indication that the colon requires strengthening and healing. Infrequent diarrhea or loose bowels may be experienced. This could be due to the extra water introduced into the colon or to the stirring up of toxic waste.
Some people say that colonics wash out the intestinal flora and valuable nutrients. Is this so?
The truth is that the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine, which is only partially reached in any colon irrigation, increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment that has been washed free of putrefaction and its accompanying harmful bacteria. That is why the intestines of a newborn baby immediately begin to grow good intestinal flora. Each time you clean out the putrefying “garbage” and make a better environment for the flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media.
With this in mind, it is a good idea to supplement with good intestinal bacteria after a colon cleanse or series of colonics so that colonization can take place in a healthier medium, i.e. the intestinal mucosa. Prevention is much easier by assisting your colon in maintaining healthy bacteria rather than waiting until bad bacteria have changed the environment of the colon to an unhealthy state.
What effect does Colon Cleanse have on our immune systems? The removal of stagnant waste material and hardened, impacted toxic residue could rejuvenate the immune tissue that resides in the intestines. Recent European studies show that 80% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. Colon Hydrotherapy is not a cure-all, but an important adjunctive therapy in the overall health care of the patient.
What will be okay to eat after getting a colonic? What we suggest is that you eat a moderate amount of whatever seems gentle and nourishing to you. Just as it doesn’t make sense to get your car washed and then immediately drive it through mud, eating a meal known to cause trouble in your abdomen directly after getting a colonic isn’t an intelligent choice. Green leafy salads, vegetable soups, vegetable broth, fruit and fruit juices, and vegetable juices are the best choice.
