Learn about colon hydrotherapy


Eliminate toxins with a healthy colon

While it is practically impossible to overestimate the importance of putting good things into our body, it is more likely that we will underestimate the importance of getting the bad things out of our body.

All cells must take in nutrients to maintain their metabolism; every one of our approximately 100 trillion cells also produce waste material. To maintain optimal health, we must eliminate this waste efficiently. Every cell and every organ in our body eliminates waste and is effected by waste elimination from the body as a whole. It is up to our colon to eliminate the bulk of the most toxic and putrid waste in our body. 

When we obtain energy from the food we eat, we create a waste product (feces) that should be eliminated within 24 hours or less. But due to our typical way of life we mostly  consume foods with a meat based, high fat and high sugar, low fiber dietary profile. This dramatically increases the average American’s bowel transit time up to 72 to 96 hours. This means the unevacuated waste begins a toxic build up that creates numerous issues for the colon’s optimal  processing capability in particular and the body as a whole to contend with. If not eliminated within the proper  time frame window fecal matter in the colon can become putrid and toxic. This is precisely what we at Lavage aim to circumvent. We facilitate waste removal and cleansing as our mission to accomplish for your wellness.


Theory of colon hydrotherapy

Colon hydrotherapy in its basic essence is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The concept involves the process of infusing warm specially filtered water into the rectum with the objective of cleaning and balancing the colon. In our case at Lavage, we use only the very gentle and natural Wood’s Gravity Method. There is never any forced induction of water into your body like other more invasive mechanical methods. This water induction procedure removes fecal matter from colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in the large intestine. The cleansing effects of colon hydrotherapy reduce fecal stagnation and subsequent bacterial proliferation in the colon. This also helps maintain harmony of the intestinal flora promoting optimal colon health. This is achieved as the cleansing procedure removes feces, retained gas which creates bloating,and mucus  evacuation as well as existing parasites and infectious material. Colon hydrotherapy is not proposed here as a cure all, but instead as an important …….

What is a Lavage hydrocolonic treatment

The colonic itself is approximately 40 minutes long, and you may need some time in the bathroom at the end of your session.

Colon hydrotherapy is a treatment that effectively alleviates constipation, bloating, gas and abdominal discomfort. This process is a gentle soaking of the large intestine with filtered, body temperature water, which loosens stool in order to eliminate excess gas and old fecal matter from the colon.

We use the Wood’s Gravity Method, which is a closed system and is the safest and most comfortable method available.

Included within your session are three very beneficial and complementary treatments, those being reflexology, the use of therapeutic grade essential oils and the addition of herbal infusions.  These processes aid in the relaxation and overall effectiveness of the colonic treatment. We provide these additional services as our unique signature brand of a fully integrated and effective colonic experience.

A brief note on what we mean by herbal infusions.  The majority of your treatment will be done with filtered body temperature water.  We have available for you several different herbal infusions to add to the water in the event that your body needs support for a productive treatment.  They are natural, safe and effective at supporting the muscles, the gut flora and the smooth tissue of your large intestine. We will always ask you before using them and they are included in your treatment at no extra charge.
