Most Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I be concerned about cleaning my colon?

The colon has been referred to as the sewer system of the body. It is the place where we store the waste material that most of us would rather not think about and most of us don’t until our health becomes poor due to accumulated congestion in the bowel. This waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time, (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucuous, parasites, worms, etc.), poses several problems. First this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the blood stream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Secondly, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. Finally, a buildup of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, constipation and the results of these disorders

Why are Colonics so important

The colon is part of the body’s excretory system. The other excretory organs, i.e. the lungs, skin, and kidneys are important and work together and have different functions to eliminate toxins. For example, our lungs need clean fresh air and regular exercise to function properly. It is the job of our colon to be able to excrete waste efficiently and absorb water and salts properly. Water is important for proper functioning of the kidneys and to keep us hydrated and to cleanse blood, as well as being the major constituent of most cells. The liver, as an organ of detoxification is also closely linked to the bowel through veins.

Why not use enemas or laxatives instead?

Enemas might be useful for emptying the rectum – the lowest 8 to 11 inches of the colon. Usually, one or two quarts of water are used to do that. If used excessively, it will weaken the colon and make the colon more dependent. Suppositories, laxatives and the like, are formulated to undo the effects of temporary surface constipation, and like the enema, work in a more superficial capacity. These, if used regularly, may also create a dependancy and/or cease to be effective in assisting evacuation even in a small way. Colon Hydrotherapy, without question is the Rolls Royce of colon cleansing

What is colon hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy is a safe effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material and rehydrating your system. the procedure is very simple, the colon is repeatedly flushed with warm filtered water at a very low pressure which, when released brings out any loose impacted debris and toxic material.

What is the colon and why is it so important to clean?

The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract (food carrying passageway extending from mouth to anus). The colon is approximately 5 to 5 1/2 feet. Its major junctions are to eliminate waste and to conserve water. Also, there are bacteria living in the colon which synthesize valuable nutrients such as vitamins “K” and portions of the “B” complex. Colonics effectively eliminate large quantities of toxic waste, affecting the condition of the entire body

Is having a colonic painful?


Very rarely is there more then a minor transient discomfort experienced by some people. your therapist will be able to put you at ease and answer any concerns. if you feel uncomfortable in any way always let me know. occasionally the colon will contract and give a colicky sensation these are very brief and can be tolerated. these minor cramps are due to tissue in the colon being dehydrated and a sign the body is releasing toxins

Is it embarrassing having a colonic?

No you will maintain your dignity at all times. you will be in a private room which means i appreciate the sensitivity of the procedure and will help you relax and feel at ease. your feelings and emotions will be acknowledged and honoured after the insertion of the speculum in to the rectum you are completely covered. the mess and due that people often evisage does not happen as i use a closed system the waste and smells go straight to the sewage.

How long does a colonic take?

Every individual is different initial first treatment is 90mins with a full consultation, therefore after will be 1hr-1hr15mins based upon my judgments and your individual wishes treatment times may vary.

Do Colonics wash out good bacteria

Good bacteria can only breed in a balanced environment. It also stands to reason that valuable nutrients can better be absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one. The important bowel bacteria are present on the Colon wall and the walls of our colon can often be covered in mucoid-plaque and other waste which inhibits function, bacteria and overall health. We aim to remove this waste, thus leaving a large nucleus to grow bacteria naturally. If your bowel bacteria are out of balance, your therapist may recommend a pro-biotic implant and/or recommend a course of probiotics.

Will one Colonic completely clear out my colon

This will depend on many factors and will vary from one person to another. The Colon is 5 ½ – 6 feet in length so if you have a dehydrated gut or lots of compacted matter then it may take multiple treatments to restore its function. Others have a phenomenal release from one treatment, so everyone is different.

How will I know my colon is completely empty

It will probably never be completely empty, as it is an organ in continuous use. The objective should not be an empty colon, but rather a well functioning colon.

What about Sanitation and type of Equipment?


Sanitation: Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. I use sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment and 100% disposable single-use tubing and speculums. The equipment is a closed gravity system. It features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and/or water purification unit.


How much comes out in a session; how far up can water get?

Water can travel the entire length of the colon and usually does. It is not the distance, but the build up and how long it takes to soften/loosen alas, HYDRATE the compacted, impacted material within. This is about the state of your body when you come for treatment. Some think the small intestine is also cleansed with a colonic. This is inaccurate. We would not want that to happen. It is a very large area — 25 feet, in fact, where digestion and absorption takes place. Yes, it too, needs cleansing, and that happens with herbs and with a cleansing, eliminative, alkaline diet. Never underestimate common sense. Proper Diet is primary, basic, required. Don’t be Arranging deck chairs on the Titanic and dancing around the issue. Blessings to You! 


How many sessions will I need? I hear one needs to “take a series.” What does that mean and is it true?

Absolutely true. I cannot stress this enough.Although the number of colon hydrotherapy sessions desired will depend on the individual’s personal objectives. It’s important to be aware of your objective when working with a colon therapist. For example, if your objective is to quickly recover from the flu, or lower a fever, of eliminate a lower backache or headache, possibly one or two colonics may be all that is needed. However, perhaps your objective is to overcome a lifelong habit of constipation, to learn to create multiple daily bowel movements and to achieve radiant health. To do this may require, in addition to possible dietary, exercise and attitudinal changes, regular colonics for some time. How many depends on the condition o your body and how well it responds to treatment Having colonics regularly for a while, such as daily, weekly or multiple times per week, or what is referred to as a “series”. I, as well as many therapists believe that to obtain results of lasting benefit, a series of colonics must be undertaken. Again, this can only be properly considered once an objective has been identified. Colon hydrotherapy could wisely be used as part of any regular maintenance program.

What Symptoms might I experience if I had a buildup of toxic material in my colon?

This condition is prevalent in all civilized societies, and particularly in America. Common signs and symptoms may include: Foul breath, body odors; unhealthy skin: blemishes, acne, sallow complexion; feeling and looking older; swollen joints, neuritis and neuralgia (aches and pains throughout the body); eyes become dull, or dark circles under eyes; thinking becomes sluggish, confusion, mind fog, loss of memory, difficulty concentrating; fatigue; headaches; irritability, anxiety, nervousness; abdominal gas, bloating, diarrhea, belching or flatulence; nausea; abdominal discomfort: protruding, tender or rigid abdomen; poor posture; insomnia, brittle hair and nails; coated tongue; cold hands and feet; lower back pain, sciatic pain; menstrual challenges; high or low blood pressure; lack of interest in work or life; overweight or obese; underweight, poor appetite. To mention a few. As you can see, intestinal toxicity is part and parcel of many people’s everyday experience.

Are colonics habit forming can you become dependent?


Actually, one of the better features of a colonic is that it can be used to tone the colon muscle so that the colon does not perform sluggishly. Longevity Lady says it’s ‘taking your colon to the gym’. That muscle gets exercised. It works!Some colons have muscle tone that is practically defunct. How I would know that is that the individual literally ‘feels nothing’ during the session. This means there is a good deal of work ahead. But ‘Rejuvenation’ is the title of my business. I am a beliver in Rejuvenation. I have seen it happen scores and scores of times. Colon hydrotherapy along with proper diet and exercise can strengthen the colon. The colon may still remain on the ‘slow’ side, but it never never interferes with Radiant Health if the client is willing to do what it takes. Colonics do nothing but strengthen, reinvigorate, and rejuvenate the colon. And your colon will thank you and thank you with energy and vitality.

Are colonics dangerous in any way?

Being an essentially natural process, there is virtually no danger with a colonic. When filling out forms in an initial session, there are lists of contra-indications. Anyone who fits into these categories will not be a candidate for a session. Our intent is to provide a safe and healthy service so that you do not have to worry. Modern colon hydrotherapy equipment is manufactured through compliance with strict FDA guidelines that dictate rigorous accountability. The FDA-registered equipment features temperature controlled water mixing and back flow prevention valves, pressure and temperature sensors, and a built-in chemical sanitizing unit and/or water purification unit. Disposable single-use rectal tubes, and speculums are highly recommended.

I read that colonics wash out the good bacteria, the intestinal flora? What about taking probiotics?

A colonic can’t wash out the good bacteria, because more likely than not, there is no good bacteria able to survive. Solution: clean the colon of the garbage and enable the body to assist in creating it’s own flora.
Based on how your body operates, I may recommend digestive enzymes, probiotics, etc. But the probiotics would be to enhance the balance of good flora and the colon’s ph.
The Truth is that the washing out of putrefied material in the large intestine, which is only partially reached in any colon session, increases the good intestinal flora. Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment. Every time you clean out the putrefying garbage and make a better environment for the flora, they start to multiply immediately in their natural media. In addition, nutrients can be better absorbed in a clean environment than in a putrefied one.

I am a woman. What if I’m having my period?


No problem. It’ perfectly safe and beneficial to have a colonic during your period. In fact, some women find having a colonic at that time reduces the amount of menstrual discomfort experienced. In addition, a complete cleansing program can substantially reduce menstrual discomfort from that time on.

Will colonics help if I have been suffering from constipation for a long time?

For those who suffer from constipation as “civilized man’s disease” (poor choice of diet), and for those who, through heredity, have a sluggish colon (i.e. slow peristalsis, atonic bowel), just know, this can be helped through colon hydrotherapy on a maintenance basis. An proper diet can save your life.Often individuals with slow colons, because they are so watchful, have far better health than many. 100% very doable for both types of persons enduring constipation.

What do we do when the session is over?

I make recommendations based on the assessment of what I have learned about you. You are free to follow my recommendations on further colonics, dietary programs, herbs, etc we make some goals and follow up sessions based on how the session went and your requirements i am here to help and support your needs and achievements.

And what can I expect after I leave?


Most likely, you’ll feel great. Lighter and a sense of well-being. Any activity you would ordinarily be doing, such as work or exercise, is just fine to do. With persons who have been experiencing constipation over a period of time, the process could be highly beneficial to include a series of sessions, a diet geared toward elimination and your particular body type. Radiant health is 100% possible. The body has amazing rejuvenative powers.

What are the characteristics of a healthy colon?


Healthy babies, animals and adults not subjected to the “refinements” of civilization (i.e. aboriginal peoples) have bowel movements shortly after each meal is eaten. So assuming there is sufficient fiber and water available to the colon, one characteristic is a bowel movement shortly after a meal is eaten. Once the urge to eliminate is honored by a trip to the toilet, the elimination should be easy and take no more than 10 seconds. The stool will be long, large in diameter, without offensive odor and breaks apart easily by the action of the water movement. As incredible as this may sound, if you have a proper “balanced” “elimination” diet, with a lot of raw foods and water at proper times, you will experience this. Try eating larger proportions of raw foods (balanced) see what happens.

What to do before your treatment. 



Hydrate the days prior drink plenty of water and herbal teas for optimal results the day of your treatment and refrain from eating at least two hours before your scheduled appointment. avoid tea/coffee, fizzy drinks and alcohol Eat healthy For best results, prepare a diet three days prior of fresh vegetables, soups, salads, and avoid processed food, coffee, alcohol and refined sugar where possible. Breathe and relax Try not to arrive to your appointment stressed or anxious. The digestive system is directly linked to your nervous system so the less stressed you are the more effective your treatment will be. Got gas? If you are prone to bloating and flatulence, take some Activated Charcoal upon rising the day of your colonic or a couple of days leading up to your treatment this will reduce the gas build up and draw toxicity out. you can also drink peppermint or ginger tea and have Aloe Vera juice

What to after treatment

Replenish - take 2 probiotics (Acidophillus) or 1 tea spoon of probiotic powder straight after your treatment also follow this for the next 3 days after the treatment. Drink up Drink plenty of filtered water, vegetable based juices, soups, smoothies, and avoid processed food, coffee, alcohol and refined sugar where possible. avoid fizzy drinks, tea/coffee and alcohol Eat If your lifestyle allows you; eat pureed food for 24 hours after each session Chew Digestion starts in the mouth, make sure you are taking the time to chew and really enjoy your food, even if it is liquids. Tune in Listen to your body! When you return to eating normally ensure you are only fuelling your body with nutrient dense, digestible, fresh, whole foods. If you’re body has an adverse reaction to a food, chances are it didn’t want/need it at that time. Eat intuitively, not reactively/emotionally/impulsively Also due to cleansed environment of the colon regular bowel movements may take 24-36hrs to resume this is a good sign of a healthy positive change. your body has absorbed a lot of water following the treatment and so you may notice an increased need to urinate again this is a good sign as your body will be fully hydrated and flushed of toxins. if you have suffered long standing condition of constiption or health problems, a slight head ache of fatigue may be experienced with the first and second colonic. if this happens then good rest will help restore the balance. please follow all the advice given to ensure you stay fit, slim and healthy for the future. the results from having colonic hydrotherapy can vary client to client. a positive approach to changing diet and lifestyle is needed for the best outcome.
