Comprehensive Colon Health

In 1903 Professor Elie Metchnikoff of the Pasteur Institute wrote The Nature of Man in which he asserts his confidence in preventative measures, particularly with aging. His scientific investigation states that these miseries are for the most part due to preventable causes. The most practical side of his work dealt with the cause and prevention of intestinal putrefaction. By addressing our digestive system in this comprehensive manner we may well demonstrate Professor Metchnikoff's theories of a vital life well lived.

As a colon hydrotherapist with 24 years experience, I have explored the many ways to support the gastrointestinal tract. Following Professor. Metchnikoff studies, I administer a proprietary blend of probiotic microbes (reflorastation) which has an effect of inhibiting putrefaction, thus bringing a homeo-dynamic balance back to the intestines.

Many individuals have a poor function in the large intestines because of food poisoning, intestinal flu, or the use of antibiotics. When the environment of the colon is disrupted, the bacteria that survives is often pathogenic.

There is so much more to a comprehensive therapy than just washing the bowel out with water. Oxygenation of the water, pH balance, energy frequencies, which stimulate lymphatics, are also important. Of course, the water is filtered and disposable equipment is used for each person, which eliminates any possibility of cross contamination between clients. Many individuals believe this treatment is only for those suffering with constipation. While they can be assisted in their struggles, everyone is a possible candidate. Some may not require the hydrotherapy because of continuous diarrhea or excessive cramping, but everyone can benefit from the reflorastation.

The quality of our digestion will affect the quality of our life. Digestion must also be addressed since improper food combining, rapid eating, and poor enzyme or hydrochloric acid production can affect the body's ability to utilize the nutrients. Not only is our fuel important for nourishing our body, but incomplete digestion can contribute to leaky gut syndrome. If the upper digestive tract doesn't complete its functions, the colon cannot properly accomplish all of its functions as well. These include the production of certain nutrients such as B12, the assimilation of nutrients missed in the small intestines, the decomposition of foodstuff into fecal material and then, the elimination of our bowel material.

One additional aspect for comprehensive colon health is Internal Organ Therapy. It is a gentle stimulation of the abdominal area where physical, emotional and spiritual blockages are redirected to balance the flow of the body's Chi. This Taoist treatment (called Chi Nei Tsang) will assist in redirecting the energy so that our life force energy will move through the body's internal channels.
