What is colon hydrotherapy (CHT)?
First of all, colonics is colon hygiene and it may be considered an important adjunctive therapy to rejuvenate overall health.
Colonics is not a cure for any disease or ailment in the body, once it has occurred. Colon therapy is also known as colon hydrotherapy, high colonic or colon irrigation. Colon irrigation is a safe and effective method of cleansing the colon (bowels) or waste material by gentle, repeated flushing with a soothing flow of filtered, temperature-controlled water circulating through the colon, encouraging natural elimination and release of stored toxins throughout the body.
Is CHT safe?
Yes, professionally administered colon hydrotherapy is safe. In the past, colon hydrotherapy was viewed negatively due to this modality being performed by the untrained and unskilled. Today, due to modern advancements in colon hydrotherapy instrumentation, particularly with regard to safety, along with educated and skilled hygienists, colon hydrotherapy has become a valuable adjunctive modality.
By walking you through a typical colon hydrotherapy session, we will hopefully alleviate many concerns and anxieties of the first time client.
How does a CHT treatment compare to an enema?
An enema only reaches the rectum and lower part of the colon, whereas with CHT, the entire length of the colon ? the large intestinal tract approximately 5 to 5.5 feet in length ? is reached. CHT is many more times effective. According to learned centenarian Dr. Norman Walker, ?One CHT session is equivalent to 30 enemas.”
Do the CHT sessions hurt?
No. You can feel some mild discomfort (mild spasms and cramps) which go away with breathing and relaxing. Most people report their CHT sessions as being both refreshing and relaxing.
How much of the colon is actually cleansed during a CHT session?
It is possible for a professional colon therapist to cleanse the full length of the colon. The small intestine is not specifically involved in a CHT treatment. The small intestine may be cleansed with the help of an oral (herb-based) intestinal cleanser.
Is there any possibility of bacterial or viral contamination from prior use of the CHT machine?
Modern CHT machines utilize pre-sterilized, disposable hoses and speculums. These disposables are used only once during a single CHT session. Properly administered, there is absolutely no danger of contamination.
How long does a treatment last?
Actual time the water flows into the colon is 30-45 minutes, but you should plan a total session visit of one hour in duration.
Does having a menstrual period at the time of a CHT session have any effect on the treatment?
No, in fact it is usually a good time to receive a treatment, since your body is already cleansing itself. Your flow will not interfere with the success of the session.
How I do prepare for a CHT session?
Refrain from eating 1-2 hours before the session. Be as relaxed as possible and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude. Casual dress.
Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing?
Usually not, but, since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxic waste material, you might experience some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs we recommend to rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
Do I need to take acidophilus after a CHT treatment because intestinal flora has been washed out of the colon?
It is recommended to use acidophilus, but not because the treatment washes out intestinal flora. CHT treatment does not wash out intestinal flora. Taking acidophilus subsequent to a colon cleansing is beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon. It is recommended to take acidophilus for a couple of days after each CHT session.
Can I work directly after having a CHT?
Certainly. You can work just as you would after a regular bowel movement. However if you feel gassy, we recommend that for the first hour after a CHT session you stay closer to a bathroom because of possible retained water in colon.
