Colonics and Constipation

Colonics and Constipation

Colonics and Constipation Explained

According to Dr. Bernard Jensen, PhD, the colon is a sewage system, but by neglect and abuse it becomes a cesspool. When it is clean and normal we are well and happy. Let it stagnate and it will distill the poisons of decay, fermentation, and putrefaction into the blood causing weakened organs and immune system.

Constipation is one of the ways the colon can stagnate because it means that a person has only three bowel movements or fewer in a week. The stool can be described as hard and dry and it sometimes painful to pass. A person suffering from constipation may feel “draggy” and full. There are some people who believe that one must have a bowel movement everyday however there is no truth to this.

The fact is that there is no “right” number of bowel movements. This is because each person’s body finds its own normal number of bowel movements, depending on the food you eat, how much you exercise, and other things.

At one time or another, almost everyone suffers from being constipated. In most cases, it lasts for a short time and is not serious. When you understand what causes constipation, you can take steps to prevent it.

Colonics is an alternative medicine practice believed to be one of the things that can prevent and relieve constipation. Colonics come with a long list of other alternative names such as colon irrigation, colonic irrigation, colon hydrotherapy, colonic hydrotherapy and colon lavage. During a colonic cleansing, a colon hydro therapist flushes the colon with warm filtered water.

It is recommended that the client fast before the colonic cleansing procedure. After a consultation session with a colon hydrotherapist, the client changes into a gown, lies on an inclined table with a “built-in potty” at the base. A speculum is inserted into the anus mostly by the colonic therapist, sometimes the client can do this step themselves.

Warm filtered water is slowly directed into the colon, again there are choices of either using pump or gravity. The volume ranges between 20 gallons to 40 gallons for a “high colonic”. The water causes muscles on the colon to contract and pushes feces out into an evacuation hose. The colon hydroptherapist mayu also massage the abdomen lightly to work the water through the colon.

The client is free to “let go” of the feces or, whatever that is expelled, through the evacuation hose without the worries of the smell and mess. Both the client and therapist can look at the flushed out objects that present themselves in a lighted viewing tube.

When the session is over, usually about 40 minutes, the colonic therapist leaves the room. The client uses the toilet, gets dressed and is advised to take probiotics.

A colon hydrotherapy session is said to be ideal for those suffering from constipation as it begins to hydrate the system and break up the impacted and dehydrated fecal, mucous, and other waste materials that layer the walls of the intestine. Once your colon is cleansed, once again, the intestines are capable of receiving and disposing of waste from the body, stopping the backup and re-absorption of toxic materials. Assimilation of nutrients improves and the liver and kidneys are relieved.

Colonics Isn’t An Instant Thing

Many people come in for the first time and expect the colonic cleansing to instantly release all waste from their large intestine or colon. This is not the case. The ability or inability to release is one of the ways to assess a colonic session. The first job is to get the gut muscles to respond by creating what we call a “flow through.” “Flow through” is the ability of the person to eliminate or have material flow through their alimentary tract from mouth to anus without restriction. Dehydration could be a reason for a difficult cleanse. If a client states they drink a quart or less of water daily, we know that the colon is probably dehydrated. The lack of fluid allows hardening of waste in the gut. Dehydration may also affect the quality of the intestinal muscle tissue and its ability to expand and contract properly.

Another cause is what we call the peanut butter effect. Some low fiber diets and likely combined with insufficient fluids can create a very sticky and thick elimination that gets stuck in the intestines. If this is suspected, you can prepare before the first colonic session by drinking half your body weight in ounces of water and eating more fruits and vegetables. Eliminating red meat is also helpful!

People attain the most success with colon hydrotherapy when done in conjunction with fluids, exercise and diet. Although as with other alternative medicine practices, there are proponents and skeptics of colonics even among medical doctors.
