Yes. Using FDA approved equipment, individual disposables which are used once and then thrown away, and sterile procedure, there is no danger of contamination. In fact, treatments are much safer than the common enema.
For patrons with certain health condidions, colon hydrotherapy may be contraindicated. For more information, please refer to our list of contraindications.
An enema only bathes the lower part of the colon, whereas Colon Hydrotherapy bathes the entire length of the colon. According to Dr. Norman Walker, One colonic is equivalent to 30 enemas.
Yes. Accumulated wastes, mucous and gas in the colon may inhibit its natural peristaltic action, resulting in incompletethough frequentbowel movements. This backup of toxic waste can cause a wide range of problems in the digestive tract and throughout the entire body.
The number of treatments varies with each individual and his/her condition. Often, waste is so hard and deeply lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen it. Colonics also stimulate the liver, kidney and lymph system to dump toxins. Body Basics recommends at least a minimum of four sessions your first time.
No. In fact, with the advanced equipment and training of our fully trained and certified colon hydrotherapists, treatments are refreshing and relaxing.
No. The purpose of cleansing the colon is to allow it to relax and rejuvenate, ad to promote better peristalsis. The colon cannot heal when it is constantly working to get rid of accumulated wastes, gasses, and poisons.
During a session we are actually able to bathe the full length of the colon, approximately five to five and a half feet. We are not able to cleanse the small intestine because nature provides a little one way door called the ileocecal valve that prevents water and waste from washing up into it. The buildup in the small intestine is cleared with the help of nutritional supplements taken orally during a series of cleansings.
Wait at least 6 weeks to heal and recover from childbirth before having a colonic.
Colon Hydrotherapy is safer than home enemas and, at Body Basics, we only use state-of-the-art equipment professionally administered by a certified colon therapist. If you feel it is necessary, feel free to consult your doctor but a medical exam is not required. However, some medical issues may prevent you from having a colonic session. Please check here for a list of contraindications.
In fact, it's usually a good time to receive a treatment, since your body is already cleansing. Your menstrual flow will not interfere with the success of the treatment. Flushing the colon will also reduce abdominal pressure associated with menstrual cycles.
A cleansing diet of fruit and vegetables for one day before your appointment is recommended. Drink 810 glasses of water a day. Avoid eating two hours before your appointment; avoid carbonated beveragesthey will add gas to the colon. Come relaxed, and maintain a positive, cheerful attitude.
Certainly. Colon Hydrotherapy should not interfere with your scheduled day.
Between 30 and 45 minutes, but you should plan for an hour stay.
You should not feel any intestinal discomfort, but cleansing will release a lot of old debris and toxins which might cause a brief healing crisis. If so, resting is recommended. This will usually pass within 24 hours.
Accumulation of encrusted feces in the colon makes it impossible for the glands to produce the necessary intestinal flora, resulting in increased constipation. Cleansing the colon helps bring the acid-alkaline ratio back into balance, allowing friendly bacteria to thrive, while inhibiting disease-causing organisms. We can reintroduce friendly bacteria back into the colon with a probiotic implant, or by orally taking acidophilus capsules.
