FAQs

How will I feel during and after a Colon Hydrotherapy session?

Different people will have a variety of sensations. Colon Hydrotherapy sessions typically are not painful at all. Some people may experience minor cramping which is usually because of tension and/or gas. The Woods Hygienic System uses a Gravity Based Method which greatly reduces the potential for cramping as opposed to the Pressure Colonic Machines which force water into the colon. Some people may experience minor fatigue while others feel wonderful. Most clients feel light on their feet and clean. If you are hungry after the session, feel free to eat something light such as a salad, soup, fruit or fruit juices.

Will One Colon Hydrotherapy session clean my colon?

The simple answer is no. Most people have years and years of impacted materials in their colon. Often, first time clients tend to be nervous and tense. Of course the Therapists will make a big difference here. Most people feel much more relaxed the next time simply because there is no longer any fear of the unknown. Most clients look forward to their upcoming sessions and many come in weekly.

How many Colon Hydrotherapy sessions will I need?

Unfortunately, there is no right or wrong answer. Everyone is different. It depends on your general health, the current condition of your colon, your personal goals and your willingness to modify your lifestyle such as nutrition, exercise and working on emotional issues. Even just one colonic can be beneficial but in general we find that people show greater results with a series of treatments. Typically, we find people get the best results with anywhere from 3 to 14 sessions within a series of 1 to 14 weeks respectively, followed by a maintenance program of once a month, depending on how well you respond (everyone varies).

We believe strongly in listening to your body. We recommend coming in for your first colonic to get a better understanding of what we do and how your body responds. We encourage you to ask questions and learn what changes you can make at home. Then you will be better prepared to make informed decision about how you want to proceed and how many sessions you want. The final decision is yours alone. In the event you need several sessions OrganiCleanse Wellness Center offers discount packages depending on your needs.

What is the difference between Colon Hydrotherapy and Enemas?

An Enema requires you to hold a greater amount of water. It keeps you from relaxing and strains the abdominal muscles. In addition, Enemas only work on the lower bowel area, the first 8 – 12 inches approximately. During a Colon Hydrotherapy session the Client lays comfortably on their back with their knees slightly elevated. It is not necessary for the Client to hold on to the water tube or speculum. You do not have to direct water through the tubes. All of this is handled by your Colon Hydrotherapists. They allow a small amount of water to irrigate the colon and simultaneously release. A typical Colonic will last from 30 – 45 minutes. Your therapists repeats this procedure utilizing abdominal pressure points, massage, breathing and relaxation. The amount of toxic waste removed from the colon is significantly more than an Enema.

Will I be “hooked” on Colon Hydrotherapy?

No. Our goal is to help you help yourself have a clean and healthy colon. Your Colon Hydrotherapists will educate and encourage you to develop your own healthy lifestyle.

Will Colon Hydrotherapy also eliminate good intestinal flora?

Good intestinal bacteria thrives in a clean colon. Elimination of toxic waste stuck on the colon walls will actually improve the development of “Good Bacteria” in your colon. Healthy nutrients will be absorbed more efficiently. During a series of Colon Hydrotherapy sessions we recommend Probiotic Supplements to help your Good Bacteria thrive and help your colon revitalize itself.

What about the water used in the Colon Therapy Session?

Water goes through a 3 Part Filtration process and ends by passing through an Ultra Violet Light System. The end result is pure, sterilized water.

Stage 1 – 5 Micron Sediment removes dirt, sediments, sand, rust and other physical particles.

Stage 2 – 0.5 micron EPCB carbon block pre-filter removes Organic Chemicals, Chlorine, Heavy Metals, Gasoline, Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

Stage 3 – Ultra Violet Light Disinfection System removes waterborne pathogenic organisms causing illness or contamination. The UV System kills bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens by preventing them from reproducing, resulting in save water.

The final result is greater than 99.9% Kill Rate, no chemicals added to water and removes bad tastes and odor.
