What is colonic Hydrotherapy?

Colon Hydrotherapy also known, as Colon Irrigation is best described as a gentle internal cleansing process.

It removes toxins and other burdens of putrefaction from the body, thereby assisting and supporting all other forms of natural treatment. The colon is the most important organ for maintaining good health. Colonic Irrigation can improve overall health because if the colon is not functioning properly, neither will any other part of the body.

I would like to take this opportunity to explain how Inner Health Centre differs from most Colon Hydrotherapy treatments.

Firstly we use a specialised method of Colon Hydrotherapy, known as the ‘’Brunelle Method’’. During the treatment, the therapist allows small amounts of water, which has pure medical oxygen infused within, to gently pulsate against the colon wall creating an internal massage that helps stimulate the colon for natural defecation.

This specialised treatment stimulates the organs of body via reflex points (similar to reflexology of the feet) situated within the colon to help restore better health to all organs, as nature intended.

Is this colonic different from others?

Inner Wellbeing uses a specialized method of Colon Hydrotherapy known as the Brunelle method. This method of Colon Irrigation has a unique feature.

It works on the principle of only a small amount of water being inserted into the rectum, stimulates the colon to defecate naturally so NO pressure is used.

It utilizes a pulsing action in the colon, works as internal massage which enables the colon to reshape and strengthen making it more efficient. The Brunelle Method uses pure, medical oxygen circulated into the water throughout the therapeutic treatment , producing an antiseptic and healing effect on the colon.

The colon has reflex points to all parts of the body. With the Brunelle Method, the therapist can work on specific reflex organs to help the organ perform better.

What will colonics do to the colon?

Cleanse the Colon: toxic material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit elimination. Your colon can begin to co-operate again as it was intended.

Exercise the Colon Muscles: the build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs it’s functioning. With this method it utilises a pulsing action in the colon, which works as internal massage, which enables the colon to reshape and strengthen making it more efficient.

Reshape the colon: When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape that in turn causes more problems. Again with the pulsing action this helps to eliminate bulging pockets of wasted and narrowed, spastic constrictions finally enabling the colon to resume its natural shape.

Stimulate Reflex Points: The colon connects to every system and organ of the body by reflex points. The colonic stimulates these points thereby affecting the corresponding body parts in a beneficial way.

What can I expect to feel afterwards?

Results vary from person to person, many clients report, better energy levels, clearer skin, flatter tummy, less gas and in general, a better working bowel.

How do I know if I need colonics or if I have toxic material in my bowel?

Common signs include tiredness, weight gain, constipation, diarrhoea, sluggishness, headaches, gas, bloating and skin conditions

What is constipation and how will colonics help?

Constipation is any form of congestion and is usually accompanied by dehydration. One bowel movement a day is a sign of constipation. Symptoms are overweight, irritability, bloating, gas, headaches, sinus drainage, allergies, cellulite, depression, unsatisfied hunger and poor circulation.

Is a colonic painful?

No it is not painful, some people experience a little discomfort on occasions.

Is it embarrassing to have colonics?

No. You will fully maintain your personal dignity. You will be in a private room with only your therapist, who will help you feel at ease.

Are colonics dangerous in any way?

No. This method of Colon Hydrotherapy allows for continual control over the water pressure and temperature at all times. Our intent is to provide a safe and effective service. Equipment is disinfected and sterilized using hospital approved methods. Colonics unlike the use of laxatives is not habit forming and improves the shape and tone of the colon.

The main concern of people who are considering colonic hydrotherapy is they feel that is it unnatural. But so is most medicine. The body’s natural way for removing toxins and to purge intestinal contents is through diarrhoea, which liquefies faeces enabling its rapid expulsion from the body.

Colon Hydrotherapy does this in a much cleaner and unpleasant way. Also the diet in Western society has become anything but natural and is one of the principal reasons why colonics have become increasingly necessary to maintain a healthy intestine and colon.

Will a colonic deplete the electrolytes in my colon?

In 1990, a study reported in the Journal of Natural Medicine, entitled ‘’Effects of Colon Hydrotherapy on Serum Electrolytes’’, showed that no patient experienced any clinically significant symptoms or disturbances.

Will the intestinal beneficial flora be disturbed by colon therapy?

The flora will not be disturbed anymore than having several normal bowel motions. The healthy bacteria are more than likely over run by destructive bacteria. It is a well-known fact that good bacteria, has difficulty surviving when the colon is impacted with old, putrefied, toxic matter. Colon Hydrotherapy is to create a healthier and balanced bowel environment where good bacteria can flourish.

Is there anything I need to get ready for a colonic?

Yes you can congratulate your self for making the right step towards better health.

The therapist can assess the condition of the colon more accurately if you present yourself under what are your normal dietary conditions.

Can I work directly after a colonic?

Certainly. People come in their lunch hour and return to work.

Will colonics clear up my skin?

If the toxins are not been eliminated through the bowel due to a build up of faecal matter, the body will then try to use the skin as it is another organ of elimination.

Cleansing and healing the colon diminishes the burden placed upon skin as well as the other organs of elimination.

Can I have a colonic during my pregnancy?

In the first 3 months, No, I would not recommend it. As this method of colonic irrigation activates the colon, which in turn will stimulate organs of the body, it is possible that toxins can be released into the blood stream and may pass into the womb before they are released through the colon. However, if after 3 months the mum is very severely constipated it is the better option and the colonic will be administered in a different way, to take account of the condition.

How does a colonic treatment compare to an enema?

Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum (the lowest 8 -12 inches of the colon) Suppositories are also used to accomplish the same task. Colon Hydrotherapy has the ability to release waste from all area’s of the colon.

The Brunelle Method I practice is a closed system of colonics. This method stimulates the whole colon to defecate or empty on its own without the water pressure which is present with an open system (enema).

Does having a menstrual period at the time of a colonic effect it?

No. in fact its usually a good time to receive a treatment since your body is already cleansing. Many of our clients report pain relief for menstrual cramping and less bloating.

How many colonics will I need?

This always will vary with the individual and his/her condition. Experience has shown positive changes at the third and fourth colonic. Deposits build up in a lifetime and cannot be shifted in one or two treatments.

How do the intestines get out of shape?

Everything we put in our mouth touches and effects the walls of the stomach, small intestine, and colon (large intestine). When these substances or their by-products are toxic, they damage the intestinal wall and cells, intoxicate the nerves and glands, and can be absorbed through the walls into the blood and lymph and ultimately to the cells and tissue.

As a result, peristalsis declines. The slower transit increases fermentation and putrefaction of undigested food by bacteria and yeast. The bacteria and yeast give off toxic wastes in the form of acids and gases. These substances also cause inflammation and damage to the cells of the intestinal walls. Research indicates these substances can create abnormal behaviour and abnormal brain behaviour. The nervous system is directly affected.

Elimination becomes incomplete and waste remains in the intestines. Dehydration and stagnation occur. This matrix creates erratic conditions in the body we call disease. The main dietary offenders are sugar, white flour, chemicals, and drugs. They are lifeless and give no energy to the digestive system.
