What is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy (also referred to as a “colonic”) is a gentle treatment that introduces warm water into the large intestine (your colon) for three main purposes:  cleansing, hydrating, and toning the colon. 

The focus of Colon Hydrotherapy is to maintain or regain regular bowel function.  There is significant need for this as it is estimated that 90% of diseases can be traced to an improperly functioning colon. 

And guess what? This isn’t new information; in fact, it’s far from “breaking news.”

Hippocrates, who was considered the, “Father of Modern Medicine ~ who lived 400 B.C. ~ left behind many writings that were used in medical text books for centuries and are stilled used today expressing the various ways to cleanse the intestines.  Apparently he was of the adage of use what ya’ got to get the job done...which would explain why he talks about administering an enema by using a bull’s horn or a pig’s bladder and a hollow reed or cane. 

Great news!  Oasis Natural Health uses a “closed system” device NOT a pig’s bladder to administer your colon hydrotherapy session.  Seriously though, what a “closed system” means is that there is no odor, no sound, and no backflow.  The water is triple filtered (no chemicals) with the water pressure and temperature being controlled by the therapist during the course of the session.  We use medical grade, made in the USA, single use, disposable tubing. 

A colon hydrotherapy session using a closed system allows for the ENTIRE length of the colon to be cleansed.  This is not a “glorified enema” as an enema only addresses the very lower portion of the bowel. 

This modality of cleansing the colon allows for old, hard fecal matter to be hydrated and then expelled from the body.  Along with old waste material being gently removed, toxins, parasites, mucus, and yeast get the boot as well. 

Why add coffee?

Adding coffee to your Colon Hydrotherapy session can stimulate an enzyme system in the liver called glutathione s-transferase by 600-700% above normal activity levels.  In short, coffee stimulates the liver to produce massive amounts of bile that helps to maximize the body’s ability to purge the toxins that are floating around in your bloodstream versus just getting reabsorbed again into the bloodstream.

What Can You Expect During Your Session?

 You can expect to walk into a sanitized, private therapy room with a bathroom. 

 

You can expect that Stephanie will walk you through the session, addressing any questions and or concerns you might have.  I totally get that you could have mixed emotions about your first session.  What I also know is how much better you are about to feel. 

 

Your actual therapy session will last about 35-45 minutes but 1 hour has been reserved for you. 

 

You’ll undress from the waist down (feel free to leave your socks on) and cover yourself with the sheet provided.

 

You can expect dignity.
