What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
"I believe that only once we clear our systems of accumulated waste and toxins, can we begin the process of a healthier lifestyle."

Why is Colon Hydrotherapy so Popular?
Colon Hydrotherapists in the United States assist hundreds of thousands of clients. Many of these clients claim that Colon Hydrotherapy has allowed them to live their lives without drugs, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants and pain medications. In a society where Eastern and Western medicine combine to give us the best of both worlds, the acceptance of Colon Hydrotherapy has continued to grow with impressive results.
Colon Hydrotherapy (a.k.a. colonic, colon cleansing and colonic irrigation) is a safe, effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs.
Infusing filtered and temperature regulated water into the colon, the waste is softened and loosened, resulting in evacuation through a natural action called peristalsis. The inflow of water and the release of waste, is repeated several times throughout your treatment. The removal of waste encourages better colon function and elimination.
The environment that we live in on a daily basis, truly mandates the a focus be on internal cleansing. From traffic fumes (the obvious), cleaning supplies, hair products and dyes, harmful chemicals are all around us. The one thing that most do not think about, is the stain resistant chemicals in your carpets and new cars upholstery.
