Benefits Of Colonic Hydrotherapy

Colonic Hydrotherapy triggers a major cleansing reaction throughout the whole body and purifies the blood system, organs and tissues.

The colon is the largest organ of elimination and colonics are the most rapid way to eliminate toxins from the system.

The average person is carrying anything between 2 – 6 kg of compacted matter and toxic waste in the colon.

This toxic waste sitting in the colon is reabsorbed back into the bloodstream and in to the tissues and organs of the body. Therefore it is detrimental to incorporate colonic hydrotherapy with any detox to avoid “autointoxication” which is known as a self poisoning of the system.

A build up of old, putrified fecal waste can also block proper digestion, nutrient absorption, waste elimination and provides an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and parasites. Colonic hydrotherapy will eliminate and flush out these bad toxins, bacteria, fungi and parasites.

The many health benefits of colonic hydrotherapy include:

  • improved muscle tone of the colon

  • reduced toxic waste and absorption

  • increased digestive function

  • hydration

  • purging of the liver

  • increases elimination of parasites, bad bacteria and fungi

  • clears the lymphatic system

  • increases immunity

  • clearer skin and eyes

  • clarity of mind

  • increased vitality

Other health benefits:

Cleansing Toxic Material is broken down so it can no longer harm your body or inhibit assimilation and elimination. Fecal debris built up over a long period is gently removed over a series of irrigations. Once this impacted material is removed, your colon can again begin its normal elimination function. A colonic hydrotherapy session may be considered a rejuvenation treatment for your body.

Exercises The build up of toxic debris weakens the colon and impairs its function. Gentle filling and emptying of the colon can improve peristaltic (natural muscular contraction) activity, which aids efficient removal of waste material.

Reshapes Over time, the natural shape of a problematic colon will become distorted…causing even more problems. The gentle water action and massage techniques of the therapist will help eliminate protruding pockets of waste and narrow, spastic constrictions. After a series of colonic hydrotherapy sessions, the colon gradually begins to resume its natural shape.

Stimulation of Reflex Points Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points. A colonic hydrotherapy session stimulates these reflex points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts… in a beneficial way, similar to reflexology.

Colon Hydrotherapy involves the gentle infusion of gravity fed, purified, temperature controlled water into the colon through a disposable tube (thinner than a pencil) into the rectum. The gentle flow of water helps loosen and soften impacted fecal matter and waste that has built up on the walls of the colon, which then stimulates natural peristalsis (muscular contraction) and the release of stored waste from the colon.

Byron Bay Detox Clinic use the state of the art FDA registered and medically approved “Libbe” colonic hydrotherapy machine and your therapist is internationally trained and certified. With this we maintain the highest standard of hygiene and practice.

Your certified therapist will explain the treatment and in total privacy you will insert the lubricated disposable tube. 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 in which there will be a continuous filling up and releasing of the water and waste. There is no mess, no odour and many people find it a very relaxing experience with a wonderfully light and empty 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.” - Dr. Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.
