Heal You Gut • Strengthen Immunity • Preserve Life
Our body has an awesome built-in detox system.
Our skin pushes out sweat, our lungs expel carbon dioxide, our kidneys filter our blood, and our intestines remove and excrete waste out of the body.
Still, our body depends on us to take care of it so that it can function correctly. Naturopathy, Yoga and Pranayama, a nutritious diet, and a healthy lifestyle help it to detox properly, to keep toxins and bacteria out for good.
Because of the modern diets full of animal proteins, processed food, fat and sugar, and stress, with constant pressure and lack of exercise, the colon becomes the repository of accumulated waste and toxins which disable the body’s purification system. The toxic material ends ends up re-entering our blood stream and getting deposited in our cells. As a result of this auto-intoxication we feel and act far below our potential and can become susceptible to disease.
In this situation our detox system needs a little help. If you’re suffering from digestive issues like constipation, gas, or diarrhea, colonic hydrotherapy might be just what you need to get your body back on track so that it can do its job efficiently.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is free from pain. A minor amount of discomfort can be felt during the insertion of the speculum but this only lasts for a few seconds.
Is it Safe?
Colon hydrotherapy at Kalp Naturo is very safe as it is performed by qualified clinicians . We only use FDA approved medical devices for the procedure and all of the equipment used is sterilized or disposable and the water goes through an advanced filtration process prior to entering the colon.
How can it help?
Colon hydrotherapy can assist the body with healing a variety of conditions:
- Irritable bowel
- Excessive gas
- Candida overgrowth
- Skin problems
- brittle nails and hair
- abnormal body odor
- Unpleasant breath
- poor concentration
What about “friendly bacteria” being lost?
Healthy intestinal flora are present throughout the small and large intestines and colon hydrotherapy helps to improve their habitat, facilitating their reproduction and multiplication.
What is the difference between an enema and a colonic?
An enema is the procedure of introducing liquids into the colon, causing a rapid expansion of the lower intestinal tract which results in a powerful peristalsis and evacuation. It can often result in uncomfortable bloating & cramping and put a strain on the anus possibly resulting in hemorrhoids. By contrast, colonics involves the gentle inflow and outflow or warm water that slowly dissolves accumulated toxic material and encourage release naturally, without any undue stress on your system.
Enemas only clean out the lower part of the colon, missing about four feet of the colon. To clean the entire colon, a colonic is necessary.
Will laxatives accomplish the same results?
Laxatives are an irritant to the body. Therefore, the body produces a thin, watery substance that goes through the colon and leaves behind impacted toxins and waste.
Is it embarrassing?
No. There is no odor from the bowel movements as the system is “closed” and your dignity is always maintained with proper draping in a private room.
How many treatments do I need?
Every person is different and changes in our lives create different stresses, so there is no standard number of treatments that are recommended. It depends on your personal health objectives. Even though a person feels relief even after an initial session, it is necessary to take additional colonics to sufficiently cleanse the colon. We suggest you book a single treatment initially and discuss with our experts at Kalp Naturo during the consultation what their recommendations are.
How should I prepare for the colonic?
We recommend that you refrain from eating at least two hours prior to your appointment and ensure that you are well hydrated. If possible, a diet of vegetables and grains 2-3 days in advance rather than heavy foods will help prepare your colon for the treatment. Do not drink alcohol 24 hours in advance.
What happens during a colonic?
The procedure starts with the client lying on a comfortable therapy table. The therapist gently inserts a small disposable speculum into the rectum. (We only use completely sterile, disposable tools during the procedure.) The therapy begins with a gentle flow of filtered water using light pressure to allow the colon to be cleaned. The fecal matter and toxins are released into the colon. The therapist monitors the water pressure to ensure a relaxing and healing treatment experience. There is no odor and it is like a gentle colon massage.
After some time the colon therapist will advise you to go into a private bathroom to release.
Will one colonic completely empty the colon?
Typically, one colonic will not completely empty the colon. Many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces in our colon. These are hardened, rubbery or wallpaper like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. Moreover, there is a learning process that occurs when having a colonic. As you become more aware of what is going on in your abdomen, and as your body learns how to allow the cleansing experience, you are better able to enter into that process, and therefore more material is released. One colonic will move some of the stagnant waste in the colon. The second and subsequent colonics will remove more. How many you wish to have will depend on your personal objectives.
How will I feel afterwards?
Colonics have a “relieving” effect. There may well be a feeling of lightness and internal cleanliness. People are often energized following a colonic. Many clients have reported clearer skin. Once the colon has been thoroughly cleansed then diet, exercise and other health programs will become many times more effective. Make sure you drink plenty of liquids, avoid raw vegetables, reduce consumption of meats for a couple of days. Steamed vegetables, fruit and soups are recommended.
Will I have regular bowel movements after a colonic?
The most common post-colonic experience is to have a light delay in bowel movements and then the resumption of a somewhat larger, easier to move stool. Sometimes if the colon is weak and sluggish, there may be no bowel movement for several days following a colonic. However, this is not due to the colonic, but because of the weakness of the colon. Rarely is diarrhea or loose bowels experienced. This may be due to the extra water introduced into the colon. If it should occur, it is usually of very short duration.
Same thing can be done by “Laxative” also then why to go for “Colon Hydrotherapy”?
Laxatives are most dangerous way to clean gut. It will create inflammation in the intestine thus water releases and stool will pass. Laxatives also have many side effects and it will create addiction and gradually weaken your intestine.
