Did You Know…
… that while colonoscopies are incredibly effective for removing pre-cancers (polyps) or identifying other visually obvious unwanted disease entities, they do not address anything regarding functionality. Colon hydrotherapy seeks to restore not only the regulated intestinal contractions for optimal waste removal, but also removes the toxins from the walls to optimize nutritional absorption from the foods we eat.
Also referred to as a colonic, Colon Hydrotherapy is a colonic irrigation that gently cleanses the colon by filling and emptying it with warm and cold filtered water, returning the colon to a healthful and vigorous state. A very natural and holistic approach to improved health.
Why is Colon Hydrotherapy Needed?
The intestines are virtually ignored by most people as a part of the body which needs utmost attention to maintain good health, although this system functions as an essential foundation for all other systems in the body. If the foundation is weak, the rest of the structure will be affected.
In addition to toning the colon, colonics help increase circulation, calm the nervous system and bring relief from headaches, food allergies, backaches, indigestion, colds and many other disorders. Most importantly, the body is better able to metabolize good sources of nutrition.
The Most Common Conditions for which Patients Seek Help with Colon Hydrotherapy
Other than to improve their general health and immune system (because intestinal health is so vital to many or all other health systems in the body), perhaps the most common conditions for which patients seek help with colon hydrotherapy, are:
Suspected Intestinal Parasites
What to Expect At Your Colon Hydrotherapy Session
After the therapist performs a rectal exam, the instrument, called a speculum, is lubricated and gently inserted into the rectum. The water enters and exits your body to gently bathe the colon as the therapist performs abdominal massage techniques. A very specific technique was designed by the center’s founder, Carolann Kummins, using custom massage techniques, reflexology, and acupressure points working with the abdominal cavity to stimulate healthy function.
During the session the therapist explains the anatomy and physiology of the colon, discusses nutrition and lifestyle habits that can improve the client’s overall health.
The Gravity Method is a “closed system,” which means your elimination exits through a closed tube. There is a clear segment of the waste tube for optional viewing and discussion of what is released. We provide each client a sealed, disposable speculum and tubing which is discarded after use.
