Take control of your gut health.
“Your gut is fundamental to your overall health. Your body's totally dependent upon what you eat, digest, and absorb. Correcting gut health while receiving colonics can help heal nearly every ailment.”
- Dr. Mary Simon, ND
What's a colonic?
Colon hydrotherapy (a colonic) is a gentle and effective treatment to irrigate and cleanse the colon using purified water. Colon health is fundamental to overall well-being! When the colon does not work properly, waste backs up and solidifies in the intestines, causing constipation, gas, and other symptoms throughout the entire body.
Your colon is designed to absorb water, concentrate and eliminate the stool by having a bowel movement, which should happen after every meal, or at least once daily. If this doesn't happen, toxins get reabsorbed into the bloodstream and wreak havoc system-wide-- symptoms result such as:
skin issues- acne, rashes, eczema, etc
low sex drive
... and so much more!
Colonics are an efficient way to cleanse the colon, encourage detoxification of the body, and feel better overall.
What’s included in the initial consult?
The initial colonic appointment is scheduled as a 75-minute appointment. This includes a consultation, colonic, and recommendations. During the consultation, the colon hydrotherapist will go over the process as well as any health concerns or goals you may have. Next, you will receive your first colonic. The duration of the treatment may vary, as each person’s experience is unique and afterward you will have time to use the restroom and continue to release what the session loosened up. Lastly, the colon hydrotherapist will make individualized lifestyle and supplement recommendations.
Do I need "down time" after the colonic?
You should be able to resume your normal day after the colonic. In fact, we have many people who come on their lunch break and go right back to work afterward.
What are the benefits of getting a colonic?
They say “all disease begins in the gut”. Healing the gut can be an effective way to prevent and sometimes even reverse unwanted symptoms and/or disease. Additionally, an overaccumulation of waste can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body. Ridding the body of this waste can stimulate detoxification, an essential mechanism for optimizing your health. Some common health concerns that colonics can help with include constipation relief, unwanted weight gain/loss, mental and emotional health, bacterial or yeast overgrowth, and overall detoxification.
Does it hurt?
Prior to the session, our colon hydrotherapist will go over the process to ensure that you’re fully aware of what the process entails and that you’re comfortable with it. You are in good hands with our very experienced therapist! There is very minimal discomfort during the insertion. During the colonic, especially if it’s your first time, you may experience discomfort initially. Most often this is from the release of gas pressure built up in your colon over time. Once this subsides or is released, the process should be comfortable.
What is the setup?
The colonic setup is a closed system and there is no mess involved. There is one section of the tubing that is luminated for the colon hydrotherapist to walk you through what she’s seeing, but it is optional to look. The water used in the colonic procedure is purified and kept at a comfortable temperature.
