Colon Hydrotherapy in Southern Maine (Topsham)
Has your physician recommended a colonoscopy?
We often avoid getting a colonoscopy because of the uncomfortable preparations needed. Now there is another way to prepare. Please watch this news story.
Just another good reason to consider colon hydrotherapy! Learn more about how this works below.
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and gentle infusion of warm, temperature-regulated, purified water into the colon. There are no chemicals or drugs.
Water flows into the rectum, hydrating the colon and encouraging the breakdown and elimination of hard, impacted fecal material, mucoid, parasitic, and other waste material that layers the colon wall.
This is a restorative and cleansing procedure which is relaxing and highly effective.
The Dotolo Research Corporation instrument used in the process is FDA registered. It has a 3 stage filtration system delivering clean, purified, unadulterated water. It is a closed system, therefor all gasses and wastes are eliminated through disposable tubing.
The entire procedure preserves the dignity of the individual.
Why Colon Hydrotherapy
Consider your colon is your sewer system. It is the last place everything dumps into and unfortunately, what goes in does not necessarily come out. Ultimately one’s health is on a decline when the colon gets overloaded after years of processed, fiberless foods, preservatives, chemicals, lack of water, stress, and just the air we breathe toxins intensigy reeking havoc with our digestive system.
According to James F. Balch, M.D. and Phyllis A. Balach, C.N.C. in their book Prescription for Nutritional Healing:
“Retained debris in the colon leads to the absorbtion of toxins, resulting in systemic intoxification (poisoning).”
“Many nutritionist and researchers believe that this toxicity can eventually lead to more serious disorders. Colon cleansing can rid the colon of debris, and prevent and treat a variety of health problems.”
The client lies comfortably on a treatment table as the therapist gently inserts a small speculum into the rectum. The therapist monitors the temperature and pressure of the filtered water going into and out of the colon. Waste is eliminated through the disposable waste tube and out the drain line without any assistance from the client. We use a very gentle slow fill method that works in harmony with your body’s natural rhythm, that helps make it a relaxing experience. Respect for the client’s modesty, concerns and emotions are observed throughout the treatment and all matters are strictly confidential.
How soon will I begin to feel a difference?
We are all individuals and how we feel after the treatment is unique to each person. Many clients feel energized and lighter immediately with a subsequent improvement in their bowel movements. Others may take a few sessions before they feel and see the benefits. This is why a course of treatments is required to gain the full benefits of colon hydrotherapy.
Why not laxatives?
Ask yourself this question “treat a problem in your colon through your mouth”. Laxatives and colon cleansers will NOT cleanse the entire colon, nor will it dissolve hard, encrusted fecal matter often found in the pockets (haustras) of the colon. Laxatives and colon cleansers can contribute to dehydration (losing significant amounts of water from the colon).
Laxatives and colon cleansers WILL inhibit natural peristalsis. Peristalsis is the involuntary wave-like successive muscular contractions by which food and waste move along the digestive tract. The colon muscle can eventually become dependent on laxatives and colon cleansers.
Colon hydrotherapy hydrates, strengthens, and promotes natural peristalsis.
