How the health of our colon affects our total health.

The colon is a tube approximately five feet long and 2 ½ inches in diameter. A healthy colon has uniform size and tone. It extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up and across the abdominal cavity and down the left side of the body until it reaches the sigmoid and rectum.

In addition to strengthening peristaltic activities (normal muscular contractions) in the colon reducing toxic waste and supporting regular bowel movements, the most vital benefits of colon hydrotherapy are:

    * Cleanses
    * Reshapes
    * Exercises effect
    * Stimulates body functions
    * Positively affects the immune system

The three main functions of the colon are:
o    The final digestion of our food
o    The elimination of digestive residue
o    The discharge of toxins and waste from our body

We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up into our system and pollute the inner environment. This is called autointoxication which literally means “self-poisoning”.

All of the body’s tissues are affected by the autointoxication. The chart below shows the organs affected and the impact on our well-being:


Autointoxication can be a causative factor in numerous serious diseases and is considered by many to be the underlying reason for disease. The colon is the largest perpetrator of disease of any organ in the body and is said to be the initiator of 80% of all critical illness.

There are many contributing factors to autointoxication from a toxic bowel. Improper diet, insufficient exercise, stress, overeating and ignoring the “call of nature” can all lead to bowel problems.

Most of us, for instance, have had years of poor to average nutritional food. Much of our food is subjected to processing which includes refining, frying, and over-cooking, saturating the mineral elements of our food altering, the digestive organs cannot process the minerals elements of our food with oil or grease. As a result of this food altering, the digestive organs cannot process the minerals efficiently and they are passed out of the small intestine into the colon as wastes. The consumption of mucous-producing foods such as meat, dairy products, and flour, cause dense sticky bowel movements. Excess mucous in our system is a sign of trouble. Mucousic stools are difficult for the body to eliminate. When they are expelled, they leave behind a glue-like coating on the wall of the colon which accumulates layer by layer into a hard rubbery crust. The body cannot eliminate these layers of hardened mucous on its own. They are often carries for the duration of the persons life as toxic burden.

Incompletely digested food ferments and putrefies when remaining in the colon longer than a day. When this fermented waste combines with the body’s own bile acids from the liver, carcinogens can form. We already know carcinogens can ultimately develop into colon or rectal cancers. Enhancing the colon’s ability to expedite the elimination of waste reduces the risk of developing colon-rectal cancer.

Constipation is one of the first signs indicating to us that our bowel is not functioning properly. When a person is constipated, the walls of the colon are often encrusted with accumulated fecal matter. The inner diameter of the colon is reduced like a water pipe blocked by mineral deposits, and eventually the opening becomes narrower and narrower making it more difficult to pass wastes through. Since the encrusted feces line the colon wall, the colon is unable to absorb nutrients from our food in the last phase of the digestive process. Wastes from the blood steam which should normally be drawn into the colon through the colon wall are re-absorbed by the body along with other toxins resulting from the fermentation and putrefaction of incompletely digestive food. Subsequently, intestinal stasis often follows which occurs when the muscular contractions known as peristalsis can no longer sweep the hardened feces along the digestive canal.

A person can ever have several bowel movements a day and still be constipated. The movements are usually smaller and occur more often because the inner diameter of the colon is smaller than it should be. The body reacts to this constricted bowel by stepping up the frequency of the peristalsis wave action to allow the waste to exit the body. Taken to its limit, the effect can be diarrhea, which is when the body moves out the waste so fast, the bowel doesn’t have time to remove the water and consolidate the waste into stool.

 These reasons are why thousands of people each year choose colonic irrigation as a safe, inexpensive way to improve and maintain good health.

Exercises effect

The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its function. Gentle filling and emptying of the colon can improve peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity, which aids efficient removal of waste material.

  • Avoid constipation
  • Improved bowel movements (uncompleted defecation)
  • Improved bowels muscles conditions (sluggish colon)
  • Improved digestion/metabolism
  • Helps to avoid the hemorrhoids

  • Stimulates body functions

    By encouraging elimination and reducing sluggishness in the digestive tract colonics have important influences on toxic status. This has knock-on effects to all body systems through improved functioning. Any organ which is bathed in blood teeming with toxins will work at reduced efficiency. Even small reductions in the toxic loading of the bloodstream can have significant effects on your sense of general well-being.

    # Helps to eliminate or reduce headaches, bad breath and fatigue
    # Helps to eliminate or reduce the effects of allergies

    Affects positively the immune system

    The elimination of waste material and hardened, impacted toxic remains can revitalize the immune tissue that resides in the bowels. European study reviled that 80% of immune tissue resides in the intestines. This is much higher compare to earlier studies and makes it reasonable to consider colon hydrotherapy could affect immune deficiency syndromes such as A.I.D.S. and cancer. Colonic therapy is not a magic potion, but it is an important therapeutic addition in the overall health care.
