COLON HYDROTHERAPY QUESTIONS
Q. WHAT IS THE COLON AND HOW LONG IS IT
A. Your colon, or large intestine, is an organ of the digestive system. In total your small intestine and large intestine are approximately 25 feet long, with the large intestine being about 5 feet long and 2 inches in diameter. The colon's main function is to eliminate waste and conserve water.
Q. WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY
A. A safe, effective method for cleansing the colon of waste material (including impacted fecal matter) by repeated, gentle flushing with water.
Q. HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A COLON CLEANSE
A. Symptoms of an unhealthy colon can include constipation, diarrhea, chronic gas, bloating, acne, lethargy, mood swings, allergies, and headaches.
Q. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COLON HYDROTHERAPY
A. Colon hydrotherapy has been known to speed detox, improve digestion, prevent constipation, increase energy and concentration, support overall colon health and aid in the proliferation of healthy gut flora.
Q. WHAT ABOUT "FRIENDLY BACTERIA" BEING LOST
Healthy intestinal flora are present throughout the small and large intestines and colon hydrotherapy helps to improve their habitat, facilitating their reproduction and multiplication.
Q. WHY IS AHIMSA HEALING LOFT IN FLETCHER THE "BEST PLACE FOR A COLONIC IN WNC"
Not all Colon Hydrotherapy is created equal. We offer the latest in closed system equipment, the Aqua Cleanse. Facilitating the session is Lynn Konicki, experienced practitioner of 17 years who spent most of that time at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida. We specialize in the SloFil method which hydrates and cleanses the walls of the colon, while working with the physical body to assist in muscular strengthening and reshaping. This gentle approach also allows us to rediscover the importance of the bowels, through nervous system re-patterning. The physical, emotional & mental healing can be transformative.
Q. IS A COLONIC PAINFUL
A. Most clients at the Ahimsa Healing Loft would say that a colonic is not painful and is in fact enjoyable. A colonic cleanses the colon creating a feeling of lightness. For some, mild discomfort may occur from excess gas and resistance. The warm water and abdominal massage will help to relax the gut in order to expel any waste with ease.
Q. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST FOR A COLONIC
A single colon hydrotherapy session at the Ahimsa Healing Loft in Fletcher is $100. We offer discounts for multiple sessions.
Q. HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A COLON CLEANSE
A. No eating two hours before the appointment, but drinking water to remain hydrated is beneficial. A bowel movement is not necessary prior to the appointment Although, bowel movement prior to the appointment will speed along the process of eliminating waste material, especially impacted fecal matter.
Q. WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY COLONIC
A. After the colonic most people feel rejuvenated, light and clean. We recommend eating very lightly (soups and juices are best) and drinking plenty of water for the next 24 hours. For some, bowel movements may continue just after the colon cleanse.
Q.HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET A COLON CLEANSE
A. This depends entirely on your health goals, but in order to eliminate years of built-up toxic waste inside the colon multiple cleanses may be necessary. Talk with Lynn or Courtney to determine how many and how often colonics may be needed.
