The colon is the most neglected and forgotten organ of the body. Colon health emphasises prevention rather than cure. It is the most important step in maintaining or regaining vital health.

If you are seeking health, and you have not found the answers to your recovery and healing, start here. Your intestinal tract is the origin of disease, and it is also the origin of your healing. I cannot emphasize enough how important the cleansing of your digestive system is, to your health
DR. JOSEPH RODRIGO • M.D
Leading a toxic and acidic lifestyle can cause many health problems such as headaches, aches and pains, body odour, poor concentration, skin problems, depression, lowered immunity, fatigue, constipation and weight issues.
Why colon health is important
Your colon is approximately six-feet long and plays a vital role in eliminating toxins and wastes from your body. It is also a key factor in absorbing vitamins and minerals into your blood stream.
The average person stores one to six kilos of toxic waste in their colon – the same place where 80% of your immune system also resides! This can have dire consequences for the internal prosperity of your body.
The real cause behind sickness and disease is often the retention and reabsorption of this toxic waste, which can place extreme trauma and stress on your vital organs.
How does colonic hydrotherapy work?
Colonic hydrotherapy involves the gentle infusion of gravity-fed, purified, temperature-controlled water through a pencil-thin disposable tube into the rectum and then colon.
The gentle flow of water helps loosen and soften impacted faecal matter and waste that has built up on the walls of your colon. It stimulates natural peristalsis (muscular contraction) and the subsequent release of this stored waste from the colon.
During fasting and detoxification, it is imperative to keep your bowels clear. Colonic hydrotherapy speeds up the detoxification process and prevents the reabsorption of toxic substances into your bloodstream.

What happens during a colonic hydrotherapy treatment?
Your certified therapist will explain the treatment and then you – in total privacy – will insert the lubricated, pencil-thin disposable tube into your rectum. There should be no pain or discomfort. You will lay back and relax on our colonic bed and be draped/covered during the whole procedure. The treatment will take about 40 minutes during which time there will be a continuous filling up and subsequent natural release of the water and waste.
You may have your therapist stay with you and massage your abdomen or you may be left in total privacy.
We assure you that your dignity is completely maintained at all times. There is no mess, no odour and many people find it a very relaxing and ultimately rewarding experience that leads to a wonderfully light, flat-bellied and purified feeling afterwards.

Every tissue is fed by the blood, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty; and so on to the organs and tissues…it is the bowel that invariably has to be cared for first before any effective healing can take place.
