Questions/Answers:

What is colon hydrotherapy? 

 The LIBBE device open system is considered to be the Rolls Royce of Colon Hydrotherapy treatment devices. It provides more privacy than other methods, while offering our clients a relaxing, safe and comfortable treatment. This system allows you to have a sense of being in control during the treatment because the Therapist does not necessarily have to physically 'do' anything to you. One distinct advantage with the LIBBE device is the pencil-thin rectal tube, which clients find extremely comfortable as the specially designed bed allows you to self insert the lubricated tube in complete privacy. Our clients find this reassuring and non invasive. Once the water flow is turned on, there is no need to interrupt the cleanse. Your colon will gently take in as much water as it can tolerate. You will then feel the sensation that you need to evacuate and you simply release your waste into the system. An illuminated viewing tube allows you to clearly see your toxic waste.

What are the benefits of colon therapy?

Colonics offer relief from a variety of problems by cleansing the colon of impacted & putrefactive fecal matter. Constipation, fatigue, gas, headaches, irritability, skin problems, cold hands & feet, lethargy & chronic diarrhea are among a few of the problems people have found relieved by colon cleansing. Your sense of well-being is often dramatically improved with colon irrigation. You feel lighter & more energetic. The body can again assimilate food & better defend itself against disease. Natural peristalsis, tone & regularity are restored & many serious diseases may be averted through this gentle, sterile, scientific technique. Colonics are a key factor in reestablishing the body's natural balance & restoring good health.

How many colonics do I need?

The number of sessions will vary with each individual & their condition. Though individual colonics have their benefits, it should be understood that colonics taken in sequence have a cumulative effect towards improved health. Unless we are addressing a specific colon disease or condition, a series of 10-15 colonics will usually restore good colon health. A general recommendation is to do 2 colonics each back to back week for a month or until your objectives are realized.

Each client is encouraged to progress at the rate they are most comfortable with. Good results can be achieved whether therapy is pursued aggressively or at a more casual pace. Colon hydrotherapy is most effective when done in combination with a proper diet, exercise & rest. For maintenance purposes, the International Association of Colon Therapists (I-ACT) recommends doing 10 colonics every year.

Are there any side effects to colonics?

There are no side effects! However, it is not uncommon for some people to start to feel like they have a cold or the flu after a colonic. Toxins that have been lying dormant in the colon are now being flushed out & a small amount may be re-absorbed into the body's system. Drinking plenty of water helps this healing crisis pass quickly & the person will realize an improved sense of well-being with further treatments.

How does my colon health effect my overall health?

The colon is a tube approximately five feet long & 2 1/2 inches in diameter. A healthy colon has uniform size & tone. It extends from the cecum, where it joins the small intestine, up & across the abdominal cavity & down the left side of the body until it reaches the sigmoid & rectum. The three main functions of the colon are: the final digestion of food, the elimination of digestive residue & the discharge of toxins & wastes from the body.

We experience better health & well-being when the colon is clean & functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant waste, poisons back up into the system & pollute the inner environment. This is called autointoxication, which literally means 'self-poisoning'. All of the body's tissues are effected by the autointoxication. There are many contributing factors to autointoxication. A toxic bowel, improper diet, insufficient excercise, stress, overeating & ignoring the 'call for nature' can all lead to bowel problems. Autointoxication can be a causative factor in numerous serious diseases & is considered by many to be the underlying cause of disease. The colon is the largest perpetrator of disease of any organ in the body & is said to be the initiator of 80% of all critical illness.
