Colon Cleansing – Your Questions Answered

Colon cleansing is possibly one of the most beneficial naturopathic healing modalities available, it involves the therapeutic use of infused water administered directly into the colon to flush out waste to accelerate and enhance the detoxification process.

The concept of cleansing the colon for improved health has been used for thousands of years. Flushing the system using this powerful technique has been known to result in improved assimilation of nutrients, relief from constipation and bloating, increased energy, better circulation, enhanced liver detoxification, feeling of lightness, mental clarity and overall better health.

Colon cleansing is included twice daily in each of the Amity Wellness detoxification programs. The process is self-administered using Ozone infused alkalised water to flush out toxic material directly from the Colon. There is also the option to infuse the alkalised water with organic Coffee, Chlorophyll, Vitamin C or Garlic.

Your Colon Cleansing Questions Answered

What is the difference between Colon Hydrotherapy and gravity fed colonics or colemas?

Colon hydrotherapy is a powerful detoxification technique using a machine to control the function of the colon. Pressurised water is administered directly into the large bowel and once at capacity the colon hydrotherapist releases the waste out along a visible tube for analysis.

In a gravity fed system the colonic is self-administered, it works in tandem with the body using a continuous gentle flow of infused water that enters into the colon to promote natural peristalsis. The peristalsis and flow of water moves the waste out of the colon and into the basket located inside the toilet for analysis.

Can everyone do Colon Cleansing?

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for colon cleansing, our online pre-screening process will identify any contraindications that might prevent you from participating in the colon cleansing procedure. FAR Infrared dome sessions used in combination with oxygen therapy can be used as an alternative therapy during the Amity wellness program.

Contraindications include: pregnancy, congestive heart failure, active haemorrhoids, cirrhosis of the liver, uncontrolled stage 2/3 hypertension, carcinoma of the colon, renal insufficiency, Aneurysm, fissures, severe Anaemia, acute Diverticulitis, severe IBS, GI Perforation, abdominal hernia or recent abdominal surgery.

How big is the colon?

An average colon is approximately 5-6 feet in length with an average diameter of 2.5 inches. Many people’s colons are overstretched, deformed or out of shape, constricted, overburdened with dry impacted faeces and constricted in certain areas.

Will it make my colon lazy?

The Amity gravity fed system of colon cleansing promotes natural defecation, which encourages the muscles of the colon to develop strength by stimulating the natural process of peristalsis. One of the main features of colon cleansing is the toning of the colon muscles, which helps in maintaining and resuming more regular and desirable bowel movements post cleansing.

Do colonics hurt?

A correctly administered gravity fed colonic shouldn’t be painful, however, some discomfort such as cramping may be present during the initial sessions if the colon is tense or if the impacted stools are overly dehydrated and constipated. Usually a series of colon cleansing treatments will provide immense relief, leaving you feeling lighter and more re-energised.

colon-cleansing-wellness-programsWhat are some of the symptoms colon cleansing can improve?

Colon cleansing has been known to improve constipation, gas, bloating, bulging waistline, fluid retention, acne, menstrual cramps, chronic fatigue, foggy thinking, backache, bad breath, smelly armpits, digestive issues and much more.

Will colon cleansing deplete my friendly flora?

Some of the beneficial bacteria will be swept out with the toxins during a series of colonics which is why its very important to re-inoculate the ‘good bacteria’ using a combination of oral probiotic supplements along with administration of a rectal probiotic paste after completion of the course. Once toxins are removed from the colon, the beneficial bacteria have a much cleaner habitat facilitating their multiplication and reproduction, therefore achieving a positive bacterial balance.
