COLONICS & DETOX

COLONICS & DETOX

Experiencing bloating? Fluid retention? Food intolerances? Skin breakouts? Struggling to lose that pesky five pounds or fit into that little black dress? These common complaints don’t have to be your norm.

Colonics are a supportive way to improve abdominal circulation, reduce fluid retention and clear waste build up. Coupled with abdominal lymphatic massage and a thorough assessment of bowel health, colonics are a very effective treatment for achieving optimal health and helping you look your best.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT COLONICS

What is a Colonic?


A Colonic is a safe and effective method of cleansing the large intestine of waste matter, through repeated gentle flushing with pure water. A Colonic can clear the entire length of the colon and rid the body of impacted feces, pathogens, mucous and poisonous toxins that would otherwise be recirculated in the blood stream and pose a plethora of potential health risks. ​​




What are the Colonic Health Benefits?


Colon hydrotherapy can be beneficial for:

  • Constipation
  • Acne
  • Weigh loss issues
  • Gas and bloating
  • Chronic skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Lower back pain
  • Bad breath and body odour
  • Diarrhea or IBS
  • Mood disorders such as irritability, depression or anxiety
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Food intolerances
  • Mental fog




Will I feel pain during the treatment?


A Colonic should not be painful. The majority of clients report an enjoyable experience and feel an increased sense of wellbeing shortly afterwards. However, having your first session can cause some pretreatment anxiety which can contribute to the overall discomfort. As an experienced therapist, I always strive to alleviate any nervousness or distress before beginning treatment. Relaxation is an important part of the healing process and also a key factor in the success of treatment. Additionally, preparation instructions are sent out at the time of booking to ensure adequate steps are taken to reduce wind and bloating prior to the session to minimize the discomfort.




What preparation is required?


Consuming plenty of water and plant fibre as part of a healthy diet will encourage release of fecal matter. Many of those experiencing chronic constipation would also benefit from some other methods to soften and prepare the impacted stools for release. These can be discussed on a custom basis. Since your abdomen will be massaged, eat lightly for two preceding treatment. If possible, a bowel movement prior to the session saves time and permits more to be accomplished.




How long does a session last?


An hour slot is allotted for the session. This allows 15 minutes to discuss health history and address and questions or concerns, 30 minutes of treatment and then ample time to use the washroom facilities. New clients should arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled appointment to fill out the patient questionnaire.




How many sessions will I need?


One treatment is often not enough to address issues that have taken years or possibly decades to develop. An individual assessment will be made during the first session, based on the initial complaint, how successful the treatment was and the determined health of the bowel. However, as a general rule, most chronic conditions or those that involve a high level of toxicity will require 6-10 sessions. Specific additives will also be discussed.




Do I need to add coffee or ozone?


In some cases, after the initial assessment and baseline observation, the decision is made to add either therapeutic grade coffee or medical ozone. The benefits of each of these will be fully discussed with the client prior to treatment.

Colon Hydrotherapy Treatment for Detox and Weight Loss: Ajax

 

If you struggle with weight loss, acne, IBS, or stress, the issue may be located in your gut. Gut health is massively important for almost every area of the body. Our Ajax clinic for restorative medicine can help with colon hydrotherapy treatment.

 

How Does Colon Hydrotherapy Work?

Over the years, impacted waste matter, pathogens, and other toxins can build up in the colon. If left untreated, these can be recirculated back into the bloodstream, causing health problems. During a colonic, the large intestine is cleansed of all waste matter through a flushing process.

  • Optimal weight loss

What to Expect

It's natural to be nervous before your first colonic. However, the treatment isn't painful. Here's what to expect from your first treatment.

Step 1: Contact Us For a Consult

Our clinicians are happy to work with you to address any concerns you may have and personalize your experience. Before your treatment, you'll want to consume lots of water and plant fiber, as well as eat lightly for two days prior to treatment. Having a bowel movement before the appointment can also speed up the process and allow for better results.

Depending on your initial assessment, your clinician may suggest the addition of therapeutic grade coffee or medical ozone.

Step 2: Your Treatments

Often, clients will see some results immediately, but one treatment isn't enough to completely solve bowel issues. For best results and for chronic issues, we recommend at least 6 to 10 treatments. However, each person is different and will be advised individually by a clinician.

Treatments last about an hour each, with approximately 30 minutes of that time being used for colonic hydrotherapy.

Step 3: See Results

Finally, you're done! Enjoy the results of your colonic and experience better gut health, increased energy, weight loss, and clearer skin.
