Colon Hydrotherapy

colon hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy or a Colonic is the therapeutic use of water to internally cleanse the colon.

Colon hydrotherapy is done with a machine that is known as a closed system. This is the administration of water into the colon through a speculum inserted in the rectum.

 A closed system delivers double, sometimes triple filtered water at a controlled temperature and flow rate through a tube, to slowly fill the colon. Once the colon is filled, the flow of water is stopped to allow for the contraction and release in the colon thereby allowing fecal matter to flow back into the tube and into a drain.

The contents of the colon are so toxic that if one drop got into the blood, it would trigger an emergency which would probably require admission to an intensive care unit (ICU).

The immune system has two broad functions:

  • Department of Defense
  • Department of Maintenance (repair and cleaning)

An unnatural diet and unhealthy lifestyle, not drinking enough water, ignoring the urge to defecate, and exposure to environmental toxins will almost always result in constipation. When waste material is held in the colon and not eliminated often, then toxins can be absorbed back into the blood, which is not only not healthy, but can be harmful to the body.

If your bedroom becomes unusable, you can sleep in another room. However, if the bathroom is not functional, you have a real problem. The bathroom, or more precisely, the toilet (waste disposal unit=sewer), can be thought of as the colon. When the toxins in the colon begin to be absorbed into the blood, big problems arise.  This is when it is time to call a plumber.

As an I-ACT certified Colon Hydrotherapist, I know the power of combining nutrition and naturopathic modalities to create an environment in the body conducive to health and healing. For six years I have been practicing colon hydrotherapy alongside many passionate practitioners and doctors.

I wanted to be part of the Oasis team because the program here is in total alignment with my experience and philosophy regarding healing. I love assisting patients in reaching their cleansing and detoxification goals. It is also important to me to be able to participate in providing hope along the journey of healing for our patients.

I enjoy exploration and travel within the USA and abroad. I am a fierce volleyball player who especially loves playing beach volleyball. One of my more important hobbies is educating myself regarding nutrition and toxin-free living.
