Why do I need Colonic Irrigation?

The colon, (large intestine) is approximately 2 meters long, it is vital to a healthy life. It is part of the
body’s purification system and if clogged or not functioning to its potential, the whole body suffers.

How does the colon work?

The large intestine is a muscle shaped like a tube that moves the digested food and hosts many bacteria that produce various vitamins. The colon also allows for the absorption of proteins into the blood stream. Such an important organ obviously needs to be kept clean.

What does Colonic Irrigation do?

It removes unhealthy toxins and hard toxic waste from the bowel and stagnated bits and pieces of food that have adhered to the colon. This helps prevent toxic material entering the blood stream. Once these toxicity levels are reduced, Nutritional transport is improved therefore allowing natural supplements and natural foods to be processed throughout the body more effectively.

What damage do toxins do to my body?

Toxins that have not been removed from your body can cause such illnesses as:
Digestive disorders
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Stomach ulcers
Respiratory difficulties

How can I tell if my colon is unhealthy?

  • Indigestion
  • Headaches

How can I keep my colon clean?

There are various things you can do to help keep your colon clean such as:

  • Exercise and a good diet
  • Roughage in your food
  • Enemas can be beneficial but they only clean the lower colon (approx 60cm)

Please note: that laxatives are harmful and only address surface constipation.
Colonic Irrigation is able to naturally cleanse the colon to a further extent than a laxative.

Is toxic waste eliminated from any other organ?

Toxins can also be eliminated through the kidneys, liver, lungs and through perspiration.
Toxins that are not eliminated are stored in other parts of the body.

If toxic waste is eliminated in other ways, why is Colonic Irrigation important?

The colon is the most efficient organ for removing bodily waste. Colonic Irrigation also helps to tone the colon and enables it to work more efficiently. Therefore, it reduces the burden on other organs as it protects the body from harmful bacterium.

Does Colonic Irrigation cure health problems?

Unfortunately no! We are not claiming that this is a ‘cure-all,’ but it is an aid to help the body function more efficiently.
Eliminating toxic waste from the body removes the main source of disease.

Is this Therapy in competition with the work of doctors?

Most certainly not! We acknowledge and affirm the excellent the work being done by doctors’ . Many of them recognize that Colonic Irrigation is complementary to their work and approve and recommend the procedure. In fact, Colonic Irrigation can also be of assistance to patients awaiting colonoscopy

Once I start receiving Colonic Irrigation, do I need to have it frequently?

No and neither is it habit forming. Although there are immediate benefits to you from the first session, a course of eight sessions is recommended with the first two sessions taking place during the first week. Following the full course of treatment, sessions may be arranged according to your requirements.

What kind of equipment is used?

Temple Cleansing Studio only use ‘state of the art’ equipment which is extremely effective and comfortable. It is also odour free.

Is there any danger from the equipment?

Colonic Irrigation is a completely safe practice. After each session, all disposable equipment is discarded and non-disposable equipment is thoroughly disinfected using hospital approved disinfecting solutions.

Is a colonic painful?

A colonic is not painful. Most people actually enjoy the colonic and are especially pleased with the unaccustomed sensation of feeling lighter and initially cleaner afterward. Sometimes during a colonic, the colon muscles will contract suddenly expelling considerable amounts of liquid and waste into the rectum. This may feel like cramping or gas, and may create a feeling of urgency to empty the rectum. Such episodes, if they do occur, are brief and easily tolerated.

Will I find the process embarrassing?

Not at all. The session takes place in a private room, and a towel is draped over the lower part of your body.
Your privacy and dignity are preserved at all times. In addition our equipment ensures there are no unpleasant smells and odours.

Does the therapy have any side-effects?

Side effects are minimal and different for each individual. Some clients rave about a renewed sense of wellbeing and internal lightness while others experience mild headaches due to the elimination of stimulates such as tea and coffee. You will be able to return to you day to day activities immediately.

How long is each session?

The first session lasts a little more than an hour as we collect a brief medical history and explain the process.
Subsequent sessions last about 45 minutes.

What should I eat after each session?

We recommend that, for about 24 hours after your colonic that you treat your colon kindly. We strongly suggest that you drink plenty of liquids and eat pureed food and soups if possible. Steamed vegetables and raw fruit are fine, but reduce your meat intake and avoid nuts.

Would the therapy remove the electrolytes, 'good' bacteria and enzymes in my body?

Loose bacteria will be expelled. The removal of old waste and unfriendly bacteria allows a better chance of long-term colonisation of the colon with good bacteria. In the short-term, the practitioner will recommend the taking of probiotic cultures to restock the colon flora, and a diet which will encourage these good bacteria to multiply.
