Head To Toe views colon hydrotherapy as its most important means of assisting its clients in achieving the status of ideal health. As a result, colon hydrotherapy is utilized not only for preventative measures, but also to assist clientele who suffer from symptoms of intestinal distress including, but not limited to, constipation, indigestion, diarrhea and preparation for colonoscopy; in addition to skin conditions and inability to lose weight. The goal is to hydrate the system, remove waste, stimulate peristalsis, rehabilitate the nerves, muscles, glands, circulatory and immune systems that form the components of the digestive system and reposition the intestines to great health.
Why Should I Be Concerned About MY
The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about and most of us don’t until our health becomes poor or we feel constipated or have diarrhea.
Disease and functional disturbances of the digestive organs are the most frequently complained about problems today. The health of most organs as well as our overall well-being depends upon how well our bowel functions.
Consider These Current Medical Facts
· Over 400 million dollars spent on laxative in the
· Over 70 million Americans suffer from bowel problem.
· 100,000 people undergo colostomies each year in the
· Over 100,000 Americans die annually due to colon cancer.
These facts demonstrate that the medical profession recognizes the important role the colon plays in health and disease.
The average food time in a healthy colon is 12 to 24 hours. We have seen clients who have bowel movement once per week or twice per month. Even movement once daily may indicate constipation, depending on the amount of food consumed and the amount of stool evacuated.

Cancer Patients Improve From Colonics

Frequently Asked Questions
What to Expect During A
Your medical history and objective for the session will be discussed. You will be provided with privacy while you change into a gown. You will be asked to pass your urine, and your weight will be taken.
During therapy the client lies on a custom treatment table in complete comfort, and is covered with a sheet or towel. From the hydrotherapy equipment a small disposable speculum is lubricated and gently inserted into the rectum, through which warm filtered water passes into the colon.
A skilled trained colon hydrotherapist will use several fills and release of water, as well as a combination of light abdominal massage technique (if consented), reflexology and breathing instructions to dislodge toxic waste matter adhering to the walls of the colon. The dislodged fecal impactions are gently washed away through the system waste hose.
Each colon hydrotherapy session lasts approximately 45 minutes. One should allow at least one hour per office visit. Initially, a series of three to six separate therapy sessions is usually recommended, to achieve the maximum cleaning benefit.
This helps to eliminate fecal matter that may have been lodged in the colon for weeks, months, or even years, and to keep the client properly hydrated.
Just one colon hydrotherapy session may be equivalent to having 20 or 30 regular bowel movements. Eliminations during subsequent therapy sessions can be even more substantial as older, hardened, impacted feces are dislodged from the colon walls.
The colon hydrotherapist will carefully evaluate the client’s progress during their session to determine if additional sessions would be beneficial. After a session, many clients report a feeling of heightened energy, and renewed vitality.
After the initial series of colon hydrotherapy sessions, you may be well advised to get colon hydrotherapy every month. In this way, you can maintain the benefits achieved during your first colon hydrotherapy sessions, as well as maintain a strong functioning colon.
Is the procedure painful?
Rarely, sometimes during the procedure the muscles of the colon contract suddenly, expelling considerable amount of liquid and waste into the rectum. The contraction may feel like cramping or gas with pressure in the rectum. Most of the process is mild and gentle with a wonderful light and empty feeling afterwards.
Will one cleansing empty the colon?
I have not seen that in my many years experience as a colon therapist. Many of us have 10 to 15 pounds of impacted feces in our colon. This is hardened, rubbery material and substantial work must be done to remove it. One cleaning removes some; the second, more. Your personal objective will determine how many you may wish to have.
Does it require a therapist to administer the procedure?
Yes! The therapist is an integral and important part of the treatment. There is a synergism that takes place which involves the expertise of the therapist, the technology of the equipment and the cooperation of the patient. This results in a treatment that is comfortable for the patient and achieves the desired outcome. The therapist may also integrate various types of bodywork such as massage to enhance the session.
Is the procedure safe and sanitary?
With the use of high-tech disposable apparatus, the equipment is made “new” every session. There is total hygienic safety.
Will laxative or enemas accomplish the same results?
During a colonic the water goes all the way through the 5 feet of the colon to the ileocecal valve (where the small and large intestines meet). An enema only gets to the first foot of the colon. Laxatives are an irritant, causing the body to produce a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste on the walls of the colon. Laxatives can also become habit-forming.
Is the patient ever left alone during a treatment?
No! The safety and comfort of the patient are of utmost importance. They are attended to at all times. They are never left alone or “just outside the door”.
