How the health of our colon affects our total health
The colon is a tube approximately five feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter. A healthy colon has a uniform size and tone. It extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up and across the abdominal cavity and down until it reaches the sigmoid and rectum.
The three main functions of the colon are:
The final digestion of our food
The elimination of digestive residue
The discharge of toxins and wastes from our body.
We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up into our system and pollutes the inner environment.
This is called autointoxication which literally means “self-poisoning”.
What is Colon Irrigation?
Colon irrigation using the Wood Gravitational Method is an internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of poisons, gas, and accumulated fecal matter. unlike an enema, it does not involve the retention of water. There is no discomfort, no internal pressure, just a steady gentle flow in and out of the colon. At the same time, an abdominal massage is given to stimulate the colon to recover it natural shape, tone, and peristaltic wave action.
How many Colonics Do I Need?
The number of treatments will always vary with the individual and his/her condition. Often the waste is so hard and well lodged in the colon that it may take a series of colonics to sufficiently soften and loosen this accumulated fecal material.
The suggested series would be two colonics per week for eight (8) weeks. Once the colon is clean, it is advisable to have a colonic every one to two months to maintain the environment.
Colonics would be beneficial before, during, and after a “fast” to hasten the removal of toxic waste and also during the cold and flu season.
