||WHAT IS COLONIC HYDROTHERAPY?
Colon Hydrotherapy using the Gravitational Method is an internal bath
that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas and accumulated faecal
matter. Unlike an enema, it does not involve the retention of water.
There is no discomfort, internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in
and out and accompanied with abdominal massage to stimulate the colon
to recover its natural shape, tone and peristaltic wave action.
HOW IS A COLONIC ADMINISTERED?
Filtered water at a carefully regulated temperature is introduced under
gentle gravitational pressure through the rectum into the colon. With
special massage techniques, the water begins to soften and cleanse the
colon of faecal matter and old deposits which are then piped away with
the waste water. The whole process takes about an hour. The modesty of
the patient is preserved to the utmost throughout the procedure.
HOW MANY COLONICS DO I NEED?
This really depends, from individual to individual, on the state of
bowel encrustation and toxicity. Often the waste is so hard and well
lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to
sufficiently soften and loosen it. Some people may not have startling
results for the first few treatments. This is why a series of
treatments is necessary and advisable. Colonic irrigation is most
effective when employed with exercise and a proper diet of non-mucus
producing foods, fresh fruits, vegetables and plenty of filtered water.

WHEN DID COLONIC IRRIGATION START
Dating back to ancient times, enemas were recorded as early as 1500B.C.
in an Egyptian medical document called the “Eber Papyrus”. Many
years ago a hollow reed was used to implement enema treatments on a
river to induce water to flow into the rectum. Hippocrates, Pare
and Galen also advanced the use of enema therapy.
The present day colonic machine was developed around the turn of the
20th Century. Up to the late 1920s many doctors had colonic
machines in their offices and machines were found in hospitals as well.
Up to the early 1930s articles dealing with colon health frequently
appeared in prestigious medical journals. After this time modern
man began to use drugs and surgery. Recently there has been a great
resurgence of the wellness industry and people are demanding natural
approaches without the toxic side effects of modern day
