The colon, or large intestine, is a vital part of the body’s digestive system. It is where water is absorbed and where bodily waste is stored before being expelled from the body. The colon is also home to over 700 species of good bacteria, called gut flora, which perform various functions related to digestion and expelling waste.
An unhealthy colon can lead to numerous health and digestive problems. Common issues include fatigue or weakness, headaches, bloating and poor digestion, and overall ill-health. Stress, diet, medications, and other lifestyle issues can further contribute to toxin buildup in the colon and digestive tract, which further exacerbates symptoms.
Because of the colon’s incredible importance in expelling waste from the body, it is vital to keep this organ clean and healthy. The best treatment for maintaining a healthy and efficient colon is a colonic, also known as colon hydrotherapy.
Our colonic procedure consists of three distinct but equally important stages. First, our trained staff safely administers hydration, which comfortably irrigates the colon with pure, clean water. Next, we perform activation hydration, which triggers peristalsis, a state in which the muscles of the large intestine constrict and relax in wavelike motions, helping to move along waste material. Lastly, evacuation peristalsis is administered, which released the contents of the colon, restoring it to a clean and healthy state.
The procedure is painless, safe, and, as per federal law, requires a prescription from a doctor. Many patients find colonics performed by our certified colon hydrotherapists both relaxing and refreshing. The session can be completed in 45 minutes to an hour, and since there is no recovery time afterwards, patients can safely and immediately return to work or other obligations after the hydrotherapy session is complete. A colonic performed by a a trained and licensed expert will leave the patient healthier and feeling rejuvenated.
*Prescription is not included. Federal law requires a prescription for colonics. On your first visit please add an additional $35 to the above amount for a prescription from our medical director, valid for 12 months or obtain a prescription from your doctor.
