colonics

Your digestive tract is vitally important for your total health.  Ineffective or incomplete elimination through the colon can be the origin of many health problems.  The liver releases all the chemicals and metabolites it has processed directly into the intestinal tract.  These toxins must be removed as quickly as possible.  If you experience a slow transit time or have difficulty with bowel movements, toxins and waste will remain in the colon allowing fermentation, putrification and reabsorption of these toxins.

Colon hydrotherapy (also called colonic irrigation, or simply “colonics”) can gently cleanse the lower bowel and improve intestinal function.  The results are quick and noticeable.  Many patients find:

  • Less bloating and cramping
  • More regular bowel movements
  • Better energy and mental alertness
  • Brighter, clearer skin!

What Makes Your Treatment Here Different?

Not all colonics are equally safe and effective.  We are the only clinic in Ontario to have both state of the art “open” and “closed” colonic systems.  You will be assessed to determine which system will be best for you.  All of our colonic treatments are medically supervised and performed by experienced nurses or licensed colon therapists.  Our devises are medically approved and only sterile, disposable equipment is used.  Unlike other colonic treatments, at our clinic we have a water filtration system using isotonic saline water for your entire procedure, which significantly reduces cramping and discomfort.  Each colonic is followed by a probiotic implant to restore healthy gut bacteria.

Who Can Benefit From Colon Hydrotherapy?

Colon hydrotherapy cleanses and detoxifies, boosts immunity and improves digestion.  For these reasons alone, almost anyone can benefit from a treatment.  If you suffer from chronic constipation, IBS or other digestive distress, this therapy may be one the best things you could do for yourself! 

We especially recommend colonics during a cleanse, for heavy metal or chemical detoxification, and while coping with food sensitivities. If you’ve ever experienced difficulty prepping for a colonoscopy, having a treatment prior to your scope will make the procedure as easy and complete as possible.

What To Expect At Your Visit

We encourage you to arrive early to relax in our infrared sauna.  You will be assessed by our nurse prior to your treatment.  Filtered saline water is slowly infused into the rectum through a small sterile speculum.  The therapist massages the abdomen while controlling inflow and monitoring outflow of water and waste.  Most treatments take about 45 minutes.  After your treatment you will be reassessed and the probiotic rectal implant will be gently inserted, to improve the health of your colon. 

Coffee Enemas

There are numerous studies on the detoxification benefits of coffee enemas.  Coffee enemas are powerful detoxifiers due to the natural compounds in coffee that stimulate the liver to produce glutathione-s-transferase, the master detoxifier in our cells.  Even if you are sensitive to caffeine, it won’t affect you when used in this way.
Major benefits of coffee enemas:

  • Enhanced elimination of toxins from the liver
  • Increases bile output
  • Alkalinizes small intestine
  • Improves peristalsis
  • Relieves discomfort and “die-off” during cleanses
  • Eases chronic pain and cancer pain – pain reduction due to increased bile flow, enhanced circulation and release of toxins
  • Increases energy
