It cleans the bowel of waste and toxins through the administration of purified water, sometimes herbal solutions and probiotics.
Introduction to Colonics

Throughout the following information the following words will be used interchangeably as they all mean the same thing: colon, bowel, large bowel, large intestines.
"Every tissue in the body is fed by the bloodstream, which is supplied by the bowel. When the bowel is dirty, the blood is dirty and so are the organs and tissues. It is the bowel that must be cared for first. Sickness and disease respond more effectively and faster to treatment when bowel irrigation is done first."
An Ancient Practice
Colon Hydrotherapy is an ancient treatment performed as far back as ancient Egyptian times. They believed that death began in the colon and therefore the purging of toxic waste products from the bowel prevented disease and death.
In more modern times, Dr John Harvey Kellogg, a Medical Doctor, of Battle Creek, Michigan, advocated the benefits of colon hydrotherapy in the 19th century. He ran several Sanitariums, supported vegetarianism and was famous for the invention of corn flakes and peanut butter.
"90% of the diseases of civilization are due to improper functioning of the colon."
Colon hydrotherapy machines were commonly used in hospitals then and advocates of colonics described the large intestine as a type of sewage system. They declared if waste matter is not eliminated quickly, it stagnates in the colon causing the formation of toxins. These toxins are then absorbed from the colon directly into the blood. This led to the logical understanding of "autointoxication" - self poisoning. These toxins are then circulated through the whole body, threatening the health of every organ, even the brain! No wonder we have clouded thoughts and suffer from 'stinking thinking'.
What are the benefits?
Colon Hydrotherapy has become popular again with increased media attention. Programs such as Gillian McKeith's 'You are what you eat' and popular celebrities have declared the health benefits of Colonics and of a healthy lifestyle.
"In the 50 years I've spent helping people to overcome illness, disability and disease, it has become crystal clear that poor bowel management lies at the root of most people's health problems."

Why is the health of the colon so important?
"The lesson to learn is that when one gets the urge to move, you must do so. Being too busy in our society to give in to the need to defecate is unhealthy. Find a way!"
Among the eliminatory organs of the body such as the kidneys, skin, and lungs, the colon is one of the most important. It is crucial to keep it functioning regularly. In these modern times, less importance is placed on our health due to the fast food generation we live in, the junk food media bombardment and the high paced lives we lead.
Colon Cancer is increasing rapidly, taking the lives of 80 people per week in Australia. If not treated, it can spread from the affected area to other parts of the body. The good thing is that you can help prevent it! Eating a healthy plant based diet and exercising regularly can prevent 66 to 75% of bowel cancer cases. It's never too late to correct your diet and lifestyle. If you give the body the right conditions, it will heal itself!
The colon's natural function is impeded due to poor diet, overeating, the consumption of highly refined food, like white bread, white rice, white pasta and animal products, lack of water, insufficient exercise, and the stress of day to day living.
This is how a HEALTHY colon should look
Delaying the need to go to the loo is also detrimental to the colon's health. Many people put off going to the loo simply because they're embarrassed. We must become comfortable with the idea of going to the toilet.
The colon is also negatively affected by our emotional upsets and trauma. It is an extremely sensitive organ. Suppressed emotions will affect the colon. If you are feeling 'up-tight' your bowels will literally become 'tight' leading to constipation! The terms 'bottling it up' and 'not letting it go' will cause the bowels to 'hold on' as well. We need holistic healing for the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of our being. During a colon hydrotherapy treatment it is not uncommon for clients to experience a healing, emotional release. Your emotions are respected in our private, nurturing and caring environment.
You can see the organs of the digestive system represented here. The large colon is the last part of the digestive system. Notice the shape of the large colon? It is square-like, surrounding the inner small intestines.
This x-ray images show us how UNHEALTHY colons look
The unhealthy lifestyle habits mentioned just above, affect the shape of the colon, sometimes causing lifelong damage. Conditions result such as diverticulitis (pockets in the bowel lining), ballooning of the bowel (widened sections) and strictures of the bowel (narrow sections). Ballooning or bloating of the bowels due to an overload of waste material puts pressure on the surrounding organs. The bowel pushes against the uterus, bladder, liver, kidneys, and reproductive organs, increasing your blood pressure and needlessly causing health problems.
The colon can become prolapsed also, which can be seen in the transverse section of the x-rays. This results in the bowel 'sagging' downwards under the heavy weight of waste material that should have been eliminated. The greater the prolapse the harder it is for the waste to be eliminated effectively. It requires more effort from the colon's peristalsis muscles to push it up such a steep incline and then down and out through the descending section.
Colon Hydrotherapy rehabilitates the bowel. The removal of built up waste by way of the cleansing water helps the bowel regain its original shape and function. It is much better to prevent these types of health issues. Prevention is much better than finding a cure!
We need to prioritise what is important in our lives and realise that without our health we can do nothing. Our dreams, goals and desires may never be realised unless we learn how to be kind to our bodies and nourish them with nutritious food.
We look after our cars better than we do our own bodies!
When we don't provide our bodies with the right fuel or adequate water, things break down and when we see premature signs of decay, we wonder why! Colonics provide the 'wheel alignment' you need, to help in restoring your health.
Death begins in the colon - A harsh but true reality.
The trigger points of the colon
The colon has reflex points to other organs in the body in the same way that the feet do. If a certain section of the colon is impaired, the corresponding organ will be affected or a certain health condition could result. It makes sense that if toxins reside in the colon they will be reabsorbed into the body through the blood and be taken to other organs.
In the diagram above, you can see where the reflex points lie. It is evident that the health of the bowel is of paramount importance for optimum health. Colon reflex points help us understand just how negative the impact is, of an unhealthy bowel on the rest of the body. It is impossible for the other organs of the body to function well when the bowel is unwell.
When a healthy lifestyle is not maintained food waste that should be eliminated from the body within 8 - 20 hours sometimes remains in the colon for days and even weeks! This waste matter, literally composting away in the large colon, begins to create a very unhealthy environment where bad bacteria is produced, poisonous toxins accumulate and fermentation is caused.
This toxic waste matter can adhere to the wall of the colon causing 'mucoid plaque'! It becomes sticky and builds up layer upon layer over the years like plaque on an artery, narrowing the passageway for digested food. Doctor Bernard Jensen in his book, Tissue Cleansing through Bowel Management, reports that autopsies performed confirm it is black and has a hard rubbery consistency.
"One autopsy revealed a colon to be 9 inches in diameter with a passage through it no larger than a pencil. The rest was caked up layer upon layer of encrusted faecal material. Another autopsy revealed a stagnant colon to weigh in at an incredible 40 lbs. Imagine carrying all that morbid accumulated waste. That's 18 kilograms!"
The role of the small and large intestines is to absorb digested nutrients from our food. The nutrients are absorbed directly into the blood vessels which line the wall of the intestines and are then assimilated it into our body's tissues. However as previously stated, if layers of putrefying waste accumulate on the wall of the bowel, it not only prevents the absorption of nutrients but the actual toxins produced are absorbed in their place directly into the blood.
Life is in the blood. If the blood is not healthy no part of our body will be healthy. These toxins in the blood can rob us of the vitality we so desire and need, to live happy, active lives.
Don't let your colon dictate your health or quality of life! Allow a colonic to cleanse you from the inside out and from bottom to top!
Upon arrival at the clinic, you will be welcomed and made feel at ease. We will go through your medical history and a brief Iridology Assessment is given, focusing on the bowel to determine its condition and shape. We will be able to see the level of toxicity and what other areas of the body could also be affected. It is also possible to determine if the colon has diverticulum, ballooning, strictures (narrowing) or is prolapsed. A gown is then offered for you to change into, or you may remain in your shirt and be draped with a towel or sheet.
During the therapy the client lays comfortably on a well draped treatment table.
Initially you will lie on your left side for the insertion of the small disposable speculum. This is gently inserted into the rectum, through which warm, purified water is passed into the colon.
Shortly afterwards you will roll over onto your back for more comfort during the remainder of the treatment. The colonic treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. A small amount of filtered warm water is allowed to enter the last section of the colon initially. We slowly encourage the body's natural peristalsis to initiate elimination. With client consent, special abdominal massage techniques are used to facilitate the treatment and colon reflexology points are also worked on the feet to support the cleanse.
We may fluctuate the water temperature from warm to cool to further stimulate the body's natural peristalsis action. The therapist will be sensitive to your requests. This procedure allows the colon to empty itself by way of the cleansing water and gradually enables the removal of harmful toxins from the entire large colon. There is a glass viewing section where the material can be seen. This helps the therapist to further ascertain what state your colon is in and determines if there is an excess of gas, fermentation, mucous or even the presence of parasites. It is also comforting to know that throughout the treatment there is no accompanying odour, sound or mess.
Once the treatment is complete, you will visit the restroom. Rest and relax to ensure you have emptied your bowels sufficiently. Some are soon ready to go about their daily tasks; however you are welcome to relax in our waiting room if you feel your body requires a little more time to readjust. Why not take some time out from your busy schedule to read some interesting health articles or perhaps borrow a book OR dvd from your local library.
We happily recommend the following books and DVD's:
- Tissue Cleansing through Bowel Management by Dr Bernard Jensen
- Colon Health - The Key to a Vibrant Life by Dr Norman Walker
- Food Matters (DVD)
How you eat, drink and live affects your body and your health and ultimately, the quality and quantity of your life. Knowledge is Power! So with the information you will be given during your treatments, you will be empowered and motivated, to make better lifestyle choices. The dietary guidelines and healthy lifestyle hints will encourage you to put the responsibility of caring for your health back into your own hands.

Colon Hydrotherapy Preparation
Hydrate your body with plenty of pure water during the days prior to your appointment.
Prior to your colon therapy and indeed at any time, try to cut down on your coffee, tea, alcohol and soft/fizzy drinks which all dehydrate the body.
You may have regular light meals during the day or so preceding your colonic and in general; however try to avoid junk food, refined products such as white bread, pasta, rice and also meat.
Refrain from eating any foods, which can produce gas such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, apples, cucumbers, and carbonated beverages.
If you smoke, try to cut down or use this time as an opportunity to make a new start!
Enjoy a healthy snack two or three hours before your appointment but please avoid eating anything after that.
It is important that you do not drink any liquids for an hour before the colonic.
If you are very constipated, try taking an Herbal laxative the day or two prior to the treatment.
External only use of castor oil rubbed onto the abdomen and left to soak in over an hour will help to soften and lubricate the hardened material in the colon. This therefore will allow for a more thorough cleanse during your colonic. Do NOT Drink it!
Most of all, relax; you will be in caring hands. This is a highly therapeutic, clinical and beneficial treatment. The benefits far out way any momentary feelings of apprehension and the results will convince you that it is worthwhile!
Post Colon Hydrotherapy & General Health Tips
Avoid any gas producing food or drinks for at least two days after your colonic.
It is advisable to avoid all stimulants, coffee, tea, alcohol and soft/fizzy drinks.
It's best to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise on the day of your colonic.
Please drink plenty of pure water! Daily & between meals!
It is not recommended to drink with your meals. This dilutes the acid in the stomach; disrupting digestion and causes gas. Try to drink your water between meals, up until 20 minutes prior to eating and not for at least 1 hour afterwards.
Try squeezing some lemon juice into your water daily. It has an alkalising affect and will balance your pH levels.
Remember to increase the fibre in your diet!
Eat more natural unprocessed foods, such as vegetables, fruit, salads, legumes (beans) and whole meal products. Remember, the best foods to eat are those that have not been changed from the way they occur in nature!
The more raw food we eat the better! These foods contain live enzymes which aid in digestion and boost our immune systems.
Raw fruit and vegetable juice is preferable to reconstituted supermarket juices which have high sugar content.
It is recommended that you take a probiotic supplement. Excess toxic waste encourages the bad bowel bacteria to flourish whilst out numbering the good bacteria. Now you have begun the cleansing process with a colonic it is an excellent chance to replenish the bowel with good ('friendly') bacteria by taking a course of probiotics.
Consider taking psyllium husks which will increase your daily fibre intake. It is wonderful for 'sweeping clean' the wall of the colon, improves the elimination of unwanted toxic build-up and encourages more frequent bowel motions.
Digestive enzymes can be taken to encourage better breakdown and therefore assimilation of nutrients.
Increased wind may be experienced by some people after the colonic. Peppermint or fennel tea helps to relieve this. You can also try camomile. These teas will have a soothing effect on your digestive system.
Depending on how well the treatment progressed and how much of the colon was cleansed, it is quite normal for your next bowel movement to be one to two days after the colonic.
We feel quite sophisticated sitting on our modern day toilets but believe it or not, 'the old ways are the best ways'! It is actually much more beneficial to go to the loo the old fashioned way. Squatting allows the bowel to assume a better position for elimination, opening up the passage way. Squatting makes going to the toilet much easier, reduces the need to strain, encourages a more complete release and speeds up the process. If you don't fancy balancing on your toilet seat then as you sit on the loo, try to elevate your feet on something about 20cm above the ground to gain a similar effect.
Detox with Dry Skin Brushing
Detox with Dry Skin Brushing
This easy routine is a fantastic way to encourage the removal of impurities from the body. It improves your immune system, helps ward off colds and flues, stimulates your lymphatics, reduces swelling of the feet and ankles, enhances blood circulation, helps budge some cellulite, improves skin infections and irritations, makes your skin softer and gives you a healthy glow.
The skin is our body's largest eliminatory organ and if it is clogged with dead skin cells we are unable to rid the body of impurities sufficiently. This means the onus is on the other eliminatory organs such as the liver, kidney, lungs and bowel to work harder. These organs become over burdened and if toxins accumulate, a diseased state is the result.
It is recommended to dry brush your skin just prior to having a shower. With hygiene in mind, each family member should have their own separate brush and the brush itself should be cleaned every couple of weeks or so. You should be able to purchase a horse hair bristle brush from your local health food store.
Start at the soles of your feet and work your way up the legs, abdomen and back, brushing fairly vigorously. Your skin will be a little sensitive initially but will increase in tolerance as you continue this daily regime. Do your arms and hands but don't do your face. Direct the brush stroke towards your heart when concentrating on the upper back and chest areas. Don't forget to do the back of your neck and scalp too.
