Welcome, and thank you for considering me to help you on this journey.
If you have done colonics before finding me, that’s great ~ just communicate your needs and call to set up the initial appointment.
To schedule for the first time or to inquire, please call me, Karen, at 720-290-0141.
What I offer below are suggestions for clients new to colon hygiene looking for additional information before scheduling a session. Please review the information below on FAQs and contraindications as well as click on the button above for preparation suggestions.
I would like to suggest you spend a little time thinking about your goal. When we meet, I’ll either help you re-adjust it, meet it, then help you exceed it if that is what you desire.
Also, consider that most people do well starting with a series of 3 sessions in a 3-7 day window, so consider your calendar/ vacation/ social plans before booking. None of this is required, but just some considerations for new clients.
I allocate 90 minutes for first time clients to allow extra time for discussion both before and after. The time on the table will be approximately 45 minutes, more or less.
In the days, or at least the day before, you will want to begin to prepare for the session. Again, click the button above for guidance with preparation.
I look forward to meeting you!
What is Colon Hygiene? It is a safe, effective method of cleansing the colon of impacted, putrefied waste material by repeated, gentle flushing with sterile water, using a closed system gravity flow method. Impacted toxic materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-producing vitamins and can also inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements, slow transit time, constipation – resulting in further disorders, such as BAD BREATH, FATIGUE, SINUS, HEADACHES, BODY ODOR, GAS, NAUSEA, SCIATIC PAIN, LOW ENERGY, VOMITING, CONFUSION, SKIN BLEMISHES, DIZZINESS, IRRITABILITY, BACKACHE etc.
What will colon hygiene do for the colon? It cleanses the colon by breaking down toxic material and removing it. It exercises the colon muscles, which have been weakened by toxic buildup – improving the peristaltic activity – this will help speed up transit time of fecal material. It reshapes the colon. When problem conditions exist in the colon, they tend to alter its shape and structure, causing narrowing, strictures and spasm. It stimulates reflex points. Every system and organ of the body is connected to the colon by reflex points (similar to reflexology). Colon Hygiene stimulates these points, thereby affecting the corresponding body parts, organs, tissues and glands in a beneficial way.It hydrates the body – allowing the body to be able to absorb much needed fluids, hydrating the cells of the body to function at optimum levels as well as diluting toxins already in the body. The solar plexus is the emotional center of the body and the transverse colon passes right through it. If an emotional event is left incomplete, it often results in physical tension being stored in the solar plexus which affects all organs of the area, including the colon. The ongoing tightening of the colon muscle results in diminished movement of fecal material through the colon, which is experienced as constipation. Therefore, not only does Colon Hygiene help in alleviating constipation, it also assists in recognizing and releasing the stored emotions causing the problem.
Will one session completely empty the colon? Never. Many of us have a considerable amount of impacted feces that has hardened, and is a rubbery or wallpaper-like material. Substantial work must be done to remove it. One colonic will remove some of the stagnant waste – the second and subsequent treatments will remove more. How many you may wish to have will depend upon your personal objectives. Your trained therapist will advise you on your personal condition.
How many Colon Hygiene sessions do I need? The number of treatments varies from person to person and what your issues and needs are, prevailing condition, diet and lifestyle. In some cases, the waste matter is dehydrated and hard and affixed to the colon wall, and it may take up to 6 to 10 or more colonics to sufficiently soften this accumulated fecal material. Also, keep in mind that the benefits of Colon Hygiene are cumulative. Those undergoing lifestyle and dietary changes may benefit from more frequent sessions, as are those undergoing detoxification programs, juice fasts, liver/gallbladder flushes, and more. Most people feel the benefit of doing a series fairly close together and then choosing a maintenance schedule suitable to their lifestyle.
Why is colon hygiene so important? While the lungs, skin, kidneys and liver also serve to eliminate toxins, people have experienced that when they ensure that the colon is cleansed and rejuvenated, the well-being of the whole body is greatly enhanced. Colon cleansing has been found to be the most effective process available to accomplish this work quickly and easily.
What about enemas, suppositories, or laxatives? Enemas are useful for emptying the rectum – the lowest 8 to 12 inches of the colon only. Suppositories are intended to stimulate a bowel movement when constipation is already present. It will only empty a small portion of the fecal contents. Prescription laxatives are poisons that the body recognizes and in the process of eliminating the laxative, some fecal contents are removed also. All forms of laxatives are temporary measures only – needing larger quantities over time and causing irritation to the mucosal wall and redundancy of the peristatis. However, an herbal formula that clears the small intestine is highly recommended and can be recommended at your session.
Can I do Colon Hygiene sessions if I am menstruating? Yes. Menstruation is a form of cleansing, and there is an absorbent pad placed underneath you for your comfort.
Does Colon Hygiene have harmful side effects? No, colon hygiene has no known side effects. Some people may experience mild detoxification symptoms after a treatment, as toxins that have been lying dormant in the colon are now being flushed out. Some waste deposits may only be partially removed and this is why a series of treatments is advised, especially if new to colon hygiene.
Does Colon Hygiene remove the “friendly” bacteria from the colon? Good bacteria can only breed in a clean environment. Colon Hygiene sessions clean out the putrefying waste material and “bad” bacteria (yeasts, E. coli, etc) and make a better environment for good intestinal flora to thrive. A probiotic supplement can be taken after colonic to help the good bacteria proliferate.
Are there circumstances when Colon Hygiene is not advisable? Yes, see list of contraindications. Certain conditions such as active infections, active inflammation (such as in Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and diverticulitis), a painful fissure or painful hemorrhoids mean treatment cannot be comfortably carried out until they are healed or are in remission. Diseases such as congestive heart disease, severe uncontrolled hypertension, severe anemia, liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, severe hemorrhaging and colo-rectal cancer are also contraindications for treatment. Some physical conditions such as severe abdominal or inguinal hernias make it an unsuitable treatment. Pregnancy is not advised in the first and third trimesters or at all depending on the woman’s experience.
Is it embarrassing? Not at all. You will be in a private room with a therapist who fully appreciates the sensitivity of the procedure. You will do all the necessary preparation yourself – without the intervention of the therapist – and then lying back on the bed – fully covered – while the water gently washes the colon – eliminating the waste. In fact, it is a euphoric experience!
Will this benefit me as part of a fasting or cleansing program? Yes. Whenever you do anything that increases the rate at which toxins enter the bloodstream, it is essential that you eliminate whatever you can through the colon. If you do not – you may unnecessarily experience increase discomforts of toxemia (poisons in the bloodstream). A knowledgeable Colon Hygienist can be of great assistance during any cleansing program.
After my colon is clean, then what? Once the colon is clean, it would be ideal to keep it that way. Diet change and regular exercise is very important. Your Colon Hygienist can help you form a diet and exercise plan that will support a healthy colon. Due to our busy lifestyles and daily stresses, it is advised to schedule periodic maintenance cleansing sessions.
