Creating digestive health through colonics

More than 65 million people are affected by digestive disorders today.  Digestive disorders account for 50 million physician office visits per year and approximately 107 billion in medical costs each year.  Factors contributing to this epidemic are stress, overeating, processed foods (Standard American Diet), sedentary lifestyles and simply living in a toxic world.

The colon is typically the most neglected part of the body.  It is the last five feet of the digestive tract and is where we store waste just prior to elimination from the body.  The colon is sometimes referred to as the sewer system of the body.  Build up of matter in the colon results in toxins leaching into the blood stream and leads to lack of energy and a general decline in health.  Keeping the colon clean is absolutely vital to good health.

Colon hydrotherapy, sometimes referred to as a colonic, is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the colon.  It has been used for centuries but is gaining popularity most recently as people are becoming more aware of the importance of colon cleansing.

The session itself is simple.  It begins by instilling purified water into the lower bowel through a disposable rectal nozzle.  The nozzle is only the size of a drinking straw and is self inserted about 1 inch.  The water flows gently into the colon, loosening any matter that may have accumulated on the intestinal walls.  The water flows out gently into the basin of the system.  A certified colon therapist attends you throughout.  At Inner Health we use the Angel of Water colon hydrotherapy system.  It is registered with the FDA and offers a safe and effective means of evacuating the colon.

Colon hydrotherapy can also be used to prepare for medical procedures, such as colonoscopies and barium enemas (eliminating the unpleasant drinks used to prepare).
