For persons afflicted with dysfunction in the colon and constipation, colon hydrotherapy is used to reestablish healthier bowel movements and facilitate detoxification.
In addition for treatment of constipation and detoxification, colon hydrotherapy can reduce or even prevent a number of conditions, such as the following:
Abnormal blood pressure, abnormal menses, acne, asthma, allergies, bloating, body odor
bad breath, chronic yeast infections, crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, constipation, fatigue, headaches, hormone imbalance, inability to lose weight, insomnia, irritability, irritable bowel syndrome, lower back pain, parasitic infection, pms and menstrual cramps.
Ignoring your bowel
In today’s modern society, many individuals have lost touch with – or even ignored – the signals from their body for so long that their bodies no longer generate them. A client may be ignoring some or all of them.
Constipation is a common side effect of many prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Many individuals turn to laxatives in an attempt to correct their constipation. Unfortunately, laxative use worsens constipation by causing dehydration and dependence. It is possible to re-train a bowel that is dependent on laxatives.
Insufficient water intake
Proper hydration is critical to our survival and necessary for optimal bowel health. Most people mistake regular hydration signals for hunger signals.
A poor diet is one that is high in processed foods, dairy and meat, and low in fresh fruits and vegetables, good fats and whole grains. Without necessary fiber, the bowel will not function efficiently.
Lack of exercise
Exercise is critical to the proper function of the body and mind, including the bowel. Individuals who do not exercise at least 30 minutes per day have fewer bowel movements and experience decreased energy.
Not only will colon hydrotherapy assist in temporary hydration, our therapists will also educate you on the importance of daily hydration. Additionally, the team at Chambers Clinic will customize a treatment plan to move you away from laxative dependence and toward optimal bowel health.
The gastrointestinal tract has many reflexes built in. These reflexes, or nerve circuits, are responsible for sending messages to the brain alerting us to prepare for a bowel movement. This sensation may be felt as a grumbling, a cramp, or a pressure sensation. Our colon hydrotherapists work with each client to re-train the body and mind to become aware of, and respond to bowel signals.
Colon hydrotherapy treatments release gas and imitate multiple bowel movements, thereby toning the muscles of the large intestine and cleansing it of any accumulated toxins and other by-products. The Colon hydrotherapy treatment Chambers Clinic offers (also known as colonic, high colonic, or colonic irrigation) lasts about 45 minutes utilizing modern, FDA-registered equipment to cleanse the large intestine (colon) with water. This process occurs in a private, sanitary treatment room, under the supervision of a trained professional. With the Hydro-San Plus (closed system), fecal matter is completely contained within the tubing and device during treatment. This means that there is no mess, no odor, and no unnecessary embarrassment for the patient.
At the end of the treatment, you’re provided with an electrolyte balancing drink to restore any possible electrolyte imbalances in your body.
