Cleansing the bowel dates back 4,000 years, which were described in the oldest known medical texts called the Hindu Vedas. The "Ebers Papyrus", written 3,000 years ago, describes in detail on how to deal with cleansing of the bowel. This cleasing was also referenced in the "Ods to the Egyptians". Dr. Otto Bettman describes the occasion referred to as "The Divine Clyst" (Note: Clyster translated means enema). Cleansing the colon has also been referenced in the ancient writings of the Chinese, Romans, Sumerianse, and the Greeks. Hippocrates, the famous "Father of Modern Medicine", left behind many writings that were and are still used in medical texts detailing the importance of a clean colon. He refers to the various ways of cleaning the intestines and describes using a bulls horn, pig bladder and a hollow reed to administer the water into the colon. The "Essenes", who lived during the times of the New Testament, also wrote about bowel health. Galen, the greatest physician since Hippocrates, mentions bowel cleaning with water, oil and honey in his writings. Dr. John Harvey Kellogg of the infamous Kelloggs Corn Flakes, treated thousands of patients with colon therapy. In 1917 Journal of American Medicine, Kellogg reported that in over 40,000 cases, as a result of diet, exercise and colon cleanings, in ALL but 20 cases, he had used no surgery for the treatment of gastrointestinal disease in his patients. During the 1930s Dr. Henry A Cotton, published several articles in the Journal of American Medical Association, discussing the use of colon cleansing and the phenomenal results of his patients. The list goes on and on regarding all the physicians of the world, the infamous scientists that are in agreeance of the importance of Colon Therapy and the relationship between a healthy body and healthy bowel is an intrinsic relationship!
Colon Hydrotherapy is an age old tradition based in the use of water to detoxify the body. Each year people are exposed to thousands of toxic chemicals and pollutants in the earth’s atmosphere, water, food and soil. These pollutants manifest themselves in a variety of symptoms, including decreased immune function, neurotoxicity, hormonal dysfunction, psychological disturbances, allergies, appendicitis, appetite loss, asthma, backaches, bad breath, bad odor, bloating, blurred vision, cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, coated tongue, colitis, concentration loss, congestion, constipation, depression, diarrhea, digestive disorders, distended abdomen, early aging, excessive colds, flu or mucus, fatigue, fever, food craving, food reactions, foul or excessive gas, gastritis, gingivitis, headaches, hemorrhoids, hypoglycemia, hyper activity, immune dysfunction, impotence, indigestion, insomnia, intestinal dysfunction, irritability, joint pain, learning difficulties, malabsorption, memory loss, menstrual disorders, muscle pain, nail fungus, nausea, nervousness, over-acidity, pancreas inflammation, parasite infections, periodontal problems, prostate problems, respiratory ailments, short attention span, sinus problems, skin problems, stomach pains, swelling, tension, toxic feeling, urinary disorders, vaginitis, weight problems, and yeast infections. Some symptoms may occur over short periods of time. Detoxification therapy helps to rid the body of chemicals and pollutants and can facilitate a return to health.
The absorption of nutrients is enhanced when the colon is cleansed. This safe and painless process involves infusing filtered and temperature regulated water into the large intestine to dislodge impacted material and dilute bacteria and toxic concentrations. Colon Hydrotherapy improves muscle tone and facilitates peristalsis action.(helps the colon contract to move fecal matter out of the body). The infusion of warm water through the colon to cleanse trapped mattering, preventing if from recycling toxins through the blood stream.
At Able Body Colonics, we use the HydroSan Machine, an FDA approved closed system. This closed system eliminates odor and mess completely. You never have to leave the table until your session is completely over. You intake water until you have the need to release and when you release, the machine takes out the debris and water you release and you are able to see what you have expelled through a glass tube in the water system if you choose to see. If not, you can simply not look at it. All the work is done for you and all you have to do is relax.
We also offer Ionic Foot Baths. The ion spa works to dramatically remove toxins from your body through your foot. The foot spa accomplishes this by energizing the water. The ion Spas control head delivers enough of an electrical current through the ionizor to generate positively charged ions. These ions** travel through the body and attach themselves to toxic substances, thereby neutralizing these toxins negative charges. After being neutralized, toxin particles are pulled through the skin and out of the body via osmosis, attracted by the highly-concentrated ion field in the ion spa water.
First, a container is filled with enough water to cover the top of the module. The timer is then turned on and set for 30 minutes allowing the bio-charge and negative ions to permeate the water. When the bath is complete, the unit shuts off automatically. During a footbath the water will slowly begin to change color. Depending upon the individual taking the footbath , the color may show anything from a milky white to a very dark brown. A chart is avaialble to view to signify the change in color of the water to allow you to see firsthand what you are expelling through the pores of your feet.Often a gentle tingling sensation can be felt during the bath.
What is the significance of color? Believe it or not, it is important to eat a variety of colorful foods in order to assure balanced chemistry. Every color is a chemical and has a chemical value. Chemical components of foods contribute to their acid-alkaline balance. As a general rule, Green Foods nourish the immune system. Red Foods nourish the endocrine system. Orange Foods nourish the joints. Yellow Foods nourish the digestive system. Yellow-green foods nourish the kidney, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area. Brown Foods nourish the liver. White Foods nourish the respiratory system, namely the lungs. Black Foods nourish the circulatory system, kidneys, liver, gallbladder and bladder. By the same token, when the water is changing colors, each color represents the part of the body that is being detoxified. One of the most visual effects is the discoloration of the water, but while the color changes in the water can be dramatic, it is not the most important factor and one must be careful about making any judgments based only on the water color.
So as you can see, water plays a HUGE role in the health and wellness of our bodies. Everyone has heard why we should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day...well this proves why the old addage rings true. Humans have a vital dependency on the properties of water....the most vital being health and the maintenance of health. With 70% of your entire body being made of water, why wouldnt you want that water to be as clean as possible??!!
