Colonics, or Colon Hydrotherapy lowers the body's overall toxicity, resulting in a reduced burden on the liver, pancreas, gall bladder, and spleen. This detoxifying effect allows the immunological system to restore internal balance. Bioenergy required to neutralize toxins becomes freed up and redirects to the healing and restoration process. The end result is improved health, energy, and vibrancy.
I use the "Gravity System", often referred to as the "Wood's Method". For more information about the actual procedure, and frequently asked questions please click here.
Consider Colonics if you suffer from:
We are exposed to more pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals in our air, food, water, and personal care products, than ever before. Colonics are an appropriate addition to everyone's self care regimen. Everyone can benefit from colonics!
Frequency of Sessions
Colonic sessions can be performed with varying frequency depending on:
A general recommendation for those beginning a colonic program is a series of three sessions spaced approximately one week apart. One session, while beneficial, is usually skimming the
surface and a series of 3 allows for a more thorough large intestine cleanse.
Please call to discuss your health factors and you will be advised on a recommended course of action. For example, if you have cleansed before, or are embarking on a juice fast, it may be appropriate for you to complete your series of three within a seven day period instead of 3 weeks.
Colonics have an Accumulative Healing Effect.
The body responds to repeated sessions by cleansing more deeply, and more efficiently. While a series of 3, as mentioned above, is a general recommendation for those in good health for a thorough large intestine cleanse, for those addressing health challenges such as elevated candida, parasites, viral or bacterial illnesses, high cholesterol, joint pain, liver congestion, some cancers, and much more, it is ideal to commit to weekly or twice weekly colonics from anywhere from one to twelve or even twenty-four weeks. It is ideal in those circumstances to combine wellness sessions to address these more challenging health issues and optimize drainage and detoxification through food and natural products. Once again, please call to discuss your personal situation and receive a recommendation for your cleansing program.
Colonics As Part of Regular Self Care
After the initial cleansing stage, a maintenance schedule is approximately four to six weeks between sessions. Alternately, some prefer to repeat a series of 3 twice a year (spring and fall). We go to the dentist twice a year, get a monthly massage... regular colonics are a proactive self care choice.
Colonic Session Length
Sessions typically last about 55 minutes, and please plan on up to 70 minutes for your first appointment. Colonics at Indigo are a gentle process that encourages your colon to participate in the process through activating its peristalsis. In my over 10 years of experience, faster is not better. Give yourself this time.
