Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle method of internally cleansing your colon of poisons, gas and accumulated waste matter without the use of drugs or chemicals.
At Aqualive we use the LIBBE colon hydrotherapy open system (U.S. FDA approved) that effectively and safely cleanses the colon (large intestine) of waste and toxins.
The procedure involves a soothing flow of purified, temperature-regulated water, instilled gently into the colon (large intestine) through a pencil-thin, sterile and disposable rectal tube. As the water gently circulates, it stimulates the colon’s natural peristaltic (action of the muscles of the colon) and this provides an excellent workout for the colon.
Modern, Safe and Hygienic
With its modern, safe, hygienic and very comfortable design, colonic irrigation LIBBE open-system is considered as the “Rolls-Royce” of colon hydrotherapy. The specially designed bed allows you to easily insert the lubricated rectal tube by yourself. Your personal hygiene and privacy are maintained at all times. The LIBBE colonic irrigation open system is comfortable, painless and entirely odourless. The continuous inflow of water during the treatment provides natural, gentle and subsequent releases.
The primary goals of colon hydrotherapy are:
- Empty the bowel completely to drain lymph system
- Remove mucous plaque from the inner intestinal lining and relieve intestinal stress.
- Allow the liver to flush and release.
- Stimulate reflex points, massage the colon muscle.
Benefits of Colon Hydrotherapy
The state of the gut has a profound influence upon our health. It is from the healthy gut that we enjoy neurological and psychological as well as immunological health.
Experience has shown that colon hydrotherapy can also provide some of the following benefits:
- A general sense of wellbeing and rejuvenation
- Improved bowel function
- Regained muscle tone in the colon
- Improved digestion / metabolism
- Elimination of parasites
- Smaller and softer abdomen
- Improved absorption of nutrients
- Relieve from allergies
- Skin clearing and tightening
- Relief from headaches
- Improved mental alertness
- Increased energy
- Prevention of cancer and other diseases
Scientific research shows that 80% of the immune system actually lives right in the digestive tract (60% in the colon and another 20% in the lower part of the small intestine). If unhealthy bacteria are ruling the digestive system, there is a good chance that the immune system will be comprised.
Emotion and digestion are strongly linked, as we can clearly see the kind of language that we use to describe our responses to extreme emotional situations. If we are nervous, we have “butterflies in our stomach”, if we find something unmanageable we “can’t stomach it”, if we suffer a loss we are “gutted”. The digestive system can be an incredibly good barometer of our state of mind.
Approximately 80 to 90 percent of the human body’s total serotonin is found in specialised cells in the gut, not in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical that helps maintain a “happy feeling. That could explain why so many people report a feeling of well-being and uplifted mood after colonic hydrotherapy treatment.
The colon and the liver are responsible for excess hormones especially oestrogen. This is the reason why blocked colon and constipation can have an impact on hormonal health. Many naturopaths prescribe colonics to help reduce breast pain.
All those who take advantage of colon hydrotherapy can be divided into two major groups:
- Those suffering from some digestive disorder or other health issues
- Those who see colonics as a way of toxin removal to maintain their health
Anthony Robbins prefers the Libbe systems.
I place incredible demands on my body and I need to be sure my body continues to deliver. Regular cleansing is a crucial part of vibrant health and peak performance. Colon Hydrotherapy plays an essential role in sustaining my internal health and keeping my body in peak condition.
Who has Colonics?
Many clients use colonics as an important and specific tool:
- In place of laxatives for certain diagnostic tests involving the colon, as well as pre- and post-surgical procedures.
- for the athletes prior to intensive training and immediately after a sports event to improve metabolic efficiency or losing weight before a game
- models before a photo shoot and stage performers to release toxicity and flatten the stomach
- taxi/ truck drivers, real estate agents and other professionals forced to neglect the urge to eliminate
- cancer patients, enhancing the elimination of toxins.
Colon Hydrotherapy works best when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
What Happens on your first treatment?
Most people leave Aqualive with a feeling of lightness, cleanliness, and happiness.
The first visit includes consultation which covers health questionnaire review, digestive health discussion and a full explanation of colonic treatment. You will follow the insertion procedure in the privacy of your treatment room. When ready and covered with the towel provided you will ring the bell and the therapist will enter the room to begin treatment. Your session will be monitored in person and a light massage may be applied to the abdomen to help dislodge toxic waste. Alternatively, you can enjoy the treatment in your own privacy using a personal electronic massager, listening to soothing music or you can choose a DVD from our library to watch on screen if you wish.
The treatment is painless, however, some people may experience cramping or diarrhoea feeling. This is a sign that the body is trying to shift some matter or to release gas.
On your visits, you will be warmly welcomed by Inka Krupa who is experienced, certified and internationally trained colon hydrotherapist
