The History of Colonics
Enemas have been popular throughout history, dating back to 600 BC. Hippocrates (the father of medicine) was also known to encourage enemas. It was in 1600 AD that Pare offered the first distinction between colonic hydrotherapy (otherwise known as irrigation) and enemas. Since then they have been heralded as a valuable treatment by eminent physicians such as Dr John Kellogg (1800’s) and Dr Norman Walker (1900’s). Up until recent times, colonics were administered in hospitals before operations.
Colonic Irrigation involves using filtered water introduced into the body in order to clean out debris and waste from the colon or large intestine.
Possible Benefits of having a colonic:
. cleanses, tones and exercises the colon, improving muscle contraction
. re-educates the colon helping it return to its more original form
. can help to balance the micro-flora ecosystem by removing both good and bad bacteria
. can increase the absorption of nutrients through the colon wall
. may possibly decrease the risk of colon cancer by regular health maintenance
. it improves the overall health of the body, including the immune system
. encourages the expulsion of parasites and other negative creatures living within the gut
How you should feel after a colonic:
You should have a sensation of lightness and clarity. As everyone is different, we all experience the elimination of mucus, undigested food fragments, gases, bacteria and toxins differently. Over the last 8 years I have performed thousands of colonics and the vast majority of people experience improved levels of health and energy.
