Colon Hydrotherapy

Not something you would talk about at a dinner party, but a properly function colon (large intestine) is the foundation for good health.  Remember when Elvis Presley died of a drug overdose.  At his autopsy, doctors made a startling discovery; his colon weighed 60 pounds!  A normal colon weighs only 4 pounds, so poor Elvis was carrying over 50 pounds of impacted feces in his colon.  This is an extreme example, but scientists estimate that the average adult has 10 to 15 pounds of toxic waste in the colon.  So the next time someone tells you that you are full of it, it may not be a joke.  For some people, this is a serious problem.

More Common Than You Think

Your intestinal tract is designed to excrete waste and toxins from your body.  Poor diet, medications, disease, overuse of laxatives, sitting toilets, stress and inactivity all play a role in slowing down or stopping colon function.  When this happens your colon becomes a poisonous dumpsite of toxic waste.  This intestinal toxicity affects almost everyone.  Do you have constipation, diarrhea, bad breath, gas, body odour, skin blemishes, abdominal pain or bloating?  Any headaches, backaches, joint pain or sciatic pain?  These are just a few of the symptoms of a troubled colon.  And don't think that just because you have a daily bowel movement you are okay.  Very often, the entire length of the colon is impacted with hardened fecal matter leaving only a narrow channel for small, soft stool to pass through.

An Ancient Tradition

Cleansing the bowel with water has been practised for 4,000 years dating back to the Egyptians.  Also known as colonics, colon hydrotherapy uses specialized sterile equipment to gently and safely infuse pure, warm, filtered water into the colon.  No drugs or chemicals are used.  During the 30-45 minute procedure, metabolic waste is softened and loosened, and flushed from the colon.  It's like cleaning baked lasagna from the bottom of a pan.  Unlike an enema that only empties the rectum, colon hydrotherapy cleans the entire large intestine.

Don't Recycle

When impurities are not excreted, they are re-circulated back into your body and bloodstream, making you feel ill, tired and weak.  Contamination from these toxins can lead to the development of significant disease.  A big part of Elvis's demise can be attributed to the recycling of toxins from his plugged colon.  Many people do cleanses (fall, spring, liver, gall bladder, colon, kidney) to rid their bodies of built-up toxins.  These can help a lot, but they do not eliminate materials caked on the walls of the colon.  Remember that toxins end up in your colon where they can be recycled back into your body.  Always follow any type of cleanse with a colon hydrotherapy treatment to optimize results.  This will ensure that the toxic material is broken down and removed so that it can no longer harm you.

Constipation Relief

Dr. Leonard Smith, M.D., a gastrointestinal surgeon, states that "colon hydrotherapy is the gentlest and most effective treatment for a constipation problem" and "people undergoing colon hydrotherapy on a prevention basis are quite surprised at how much waste is removed by the procedure".  Contrary to popular belief, it does not make your bowel lazy or dependent upon the treatment.  The filling and emptying of the colon actually strengthens the muscular tone and re-established normal bowel function.

Many Conditions Improve

The benefits of colon hydrotherapy are far-reaching, extending all the way from psychiatric improvement to constipation elimination.  The list of conditions is extensive and includes aging, allergies, arthritis, candida, colitis, Crohn's, depression, diverticulitis, fibromyalgia, hemorrhoids, incontinence, liver disorders, irritable bowel, menstrual pain and parasites.  It's an excellent detoxifier for the overindulgence of alcohol and drug addictions of all kinds.  Colon hydrotherapy is critical for anyone undergoing cancer therapy to detoxify the body of the necessary but harmful agents used to kill cancer.  Dr. E. Sayegh, M.D., urologist, reports that colon hydrotherapy also resolves prostatitis and enlarged prostate problems in men.  In addition, Dr. Smith and other gastrointestinal specialists recommend that "colon hydrotherapy is the perfect cleansing medium for preparing the patient for colonoscopy".

You know something has hit the mainstream when it goes Hollywood.  Colon hydrotherapy is very popular among celebrities.  They call it a "rinse" and have them frequently to stay regular.  They are in the business of looking great, and colon hydrotherapy provides them with the benefits of healthy skin and weight loss.  You too can have great health.  Colon hydrotherapy is the most effective treatment to cleanse your toxic colon.


Chronic Illness Infection Connection

There is significant evidence that chronic illness is linked to infection.  This means that infection either directly caused or triggered the illness, or that infection is responsible for the perpetuation of the condition.

The singer/actor Kris Kristofferson and his long undiagnosed battle with Lyme disease have recently been reported in the media.  His story is representative of what many people experience.  In 2012 Kris was diagnosed with fibromyalgia while suffering with massive, painful spasms over his back and legs.  In 2013 with symptoms of memory loss and cognition difficulties, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.  He was further diagnosed with sleep apnea and given a pacemaker for heart arrhythmias.  He never really improved much on treatments so his wife took him to an integrative doctor in 2016 who diagnosed Lyme disease.  Following treatment for this underlying infection, he is doing much better.  No more Alzheimer’s but still some short term memory loss.

His story has been repeated thousands of times by people with chronic Lyme disease.  Multiple diagnoses, multiple doctors, limited improvement with conventional treatments, then finally a Lyme diagnosis and improvement with treatment.

While Kristofferson’s experience was specific to Lyme disease, many different infections are linked to chronic illnesses.  Decades of research and clinical experience have shown the connection.

Not Just Lyme

Lyme has been an identifiable disease for over 40 years. When people hear ‘Lyme disease’ they usually think bacteria, in particular Lyme Borrelia bacteria.  The media and public health officials pay attention to ticks, Lyme disease exposure and risk.  Information regarding treatment is on eradicating the Lyme bacteria.

The focus is predominately on acute Lyme and what do for prevention and after a tick bite.  This is all good stuff, but not representative of the true epidemic of Lyme disease.

Lyme is really the front disease for a myriad of infections.  Logically, does a tick just carry one bacterial infection?  Highly unlikely.  In fact ticks are like dirty needles carrying multiple infections in the form of bacteria, viruses and parasites.  When a person is infected they get as many as 5-10 infections.  In addition, when the immune system is compromised or dysfunctional from battling Lyme infection, additional opportunistic infections that are dormant in the body become activated.

So focusing on just Lyme bacteria for diagnosis and treatment is limiting recovery.  Unfortunately, many coinfections (as they are referred to) are difficult to test for and diagnose.  Symptoms are overlapping.  The probability of having coinfections, however, is extremely high.  It has been generally estimated through clinical experience to be about 80%, but a recent survey in 2016 in the U.K. reported that 94% of Lyme disease patients have at least one coinfection.  Here is a summary of the common coinfections.
