for Coming By!
found a good source of information on both intestinal health issues
and colon hydrotherapy. I have established this site as a way of disseminating
the knowledge I've acquired over the years and to keep interested
parties up-to-date on what's happening in intestinal health research.
If that applies to you, Welcome!
will try to assume no knowledge on the part of visitors to this site
because I have found a great deal of misinformation and ignorance
in the public consciousness with regard to these topics. You may not
know some of the terms used in this introduction, but rest assured,
I will delve into each of them completely in due time. You can also
with any questions or comments.
intestines are virtually ignored by most people as a part of the body
which needs attention in maintaining good health. They think of it
as 'gross.' Instead, I will endeavor to show you the beauty of a system
which functions as a foundation for all other systems in the body.
Keep in mind that if the foundation is weak, the rest of the structure
will be affected accordingly. If you come to understand and appreciate
both the delicacy and the intelligence of the digestive system, that
understanding will bring you closer to loving it as an integral part
of your body. My education, experience and observation indicates that
the road to optimal health is in loving 'all' of the body.
my opinion, the consequence of the general public's attitude toward
digestion and elimination, is the growing number of diseases and eating
disorders we see in our society today. The gastrointestinal tract
(GI tract) is, in one view, the beginning (transforms the food we
eat into the nutrients and basic building blocks or life energy) and
the end (removes the unusable elements and toxins) of the physical
body. If any part of the body either fails to receive the nutrients
it requires or receives toxins (anything that impedes its ability
to function effectively), the beginnings of 'dis-ease' are present.
Likewise, the psychological basis of eating disorders has been shown
to grow out of a less than positive self-image regarding bodily shape
I have a business in colon hydrotherapy (otherwise termed colonics,
high colonic, colonic irrigation, or colon therapy), and believe that
for many it can be a part of the process of returning the colon to
a healthful and vigorous state, I would love to see the day arrive
when it is no longer needed. The quality of food and the eating habits
of the people here on planet Earth have created a situation where
the digestive system becomes overburdened and is unable to process
and eliminate efficiently. Each person must therefore take personal
responsibility for making the changes in their lifestyle to counterbalance
the burdening influences.
two major areas of concentration for returning the body to a healthy
state and maintaining it are:
the nutritional and fiber value of the food we eat and
the small and large intestines (detoxification).
people's colons are not clean enough to allow the efficient absorption
of the nutrients by the small and large intestines. Any actions applied
to supplementation before the colon is working efficiently will be
much less effective if not wasted. Also, other organs which may be
in need of cleansing will not be able to cleanse themselves (a feature
built into the body) unless the avenues of elimination are open and
of the many tools for accomplishing these two objectives are vitamin
supplements, herbs and herbal extracts, and chlorophyl for supplementing
the diet and raw juicing (and high fluids), fasting, fresh fruits
and vegetables, cleansing herbs, yoga and meditation, exercise, and
colon hydrotherapy. The cleansing will work to remove mucous, parasites
and impacted matter from the intestinal walls. This often gives relief
to the many who suffer from constipation, diarrhea or other digestive
forms of 'alternative healing' address the cause of disorders rather
than the symptoms, allowing the person to experience permanent relief.
Once again though, they require a recognition of self-responsibility
in making new choices which are life-affirming and they take time!
It took years to get the body to the state it is in and while it often
takes less time to return it to health (because the system is designed
to self-heal), it will most likely take years.
you can see, realizing intestinal health will not be simply a matter
of choosing your preferred cleansing technique, applying it for a
few days and voila, you're clean! If you are encouraged by what you
read in these pages, sign up for the newsletter and come back often.
There is a lot more to come!
you have any ,
I'd love to hear them.
