Do you feel bloated, sick, tired, or simply zapped of all energy? If so, you might want to consider, Colon
Hydrotherapy (colon cleansing).
What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy has been practiced since ancient
times and its purpose then, as it is today, to remove
toxins and waste. Colon Hydrotherapy is also referred
to as colonics, colon irrigation, colon cleansing, colon
lavage (means:the washing out of the body organ such
as the colon; using a flow of water), and high colonics.
The use of enemas was recorded as early as 1500 BC
in an Egyptian medical document called the "Eber
Papyrus." The lungs, skin, kidneys and liver all serve to
eliminate toxins. Their effectiveness may be increased with the use of colon hydrotherapy. Colon
Hydrotherapy is not habit forming because the purified water actually helps to tone and strengthen the colon
muscles. With a healthy diet, exercise and proper hydration, colon hydrotherapy can offer great support
toward your wellness goals.
There are some situations when colon hydrotherapy is prohibited. See the Colon Cleansing FAQs below.

Colon Cleansing FAQs
Q. What is Colon Hydrotherapy?
A. A gentle effective method of assisting waste removal from the large intestine, with temperature controlled, clean filtered water from a FDA
registered machine. Colon hydrotherapy also exercises and tones the colon muscles and hydrates the cells of your entire body.
Q. What type of colon hydrotherapy equipment does Wellness Advocates of Detroit use?
A. We use the closed system. This means the waste comes from the body directly through the attached plastic tubing connected to the
machine leading to a drainage line. This prevents offensive odors. We use the Aquanet EC 2000, which has a dual control for pressure
and gravity. Also, sterilized disposal tubing is used. For more information you can review the Aquanet EC 200 video.
Q. What can I expect from Colon Hydrotherapy?
A. Common effects are loosening of mucus in the lungs, improved range of motion, skin tightening, feeling more youthful, spinal relief,
softening of the abdomen, relief from headaches and fatigues; and improved bowel function. The main benefit received by releasing the
toxic waste is eliminating disease from the body.
Q. What should I do before a session?
A. It may be more comfortable to refrain from eating at least two hours before your scheduled appointment.
Q. How much time is required for a Colon Hydrotherapy session?
A. The first session includes a consultation, so the first visit will be longer than the future sessions. One should plan to be in session about
an hour and a half. The actual time on most FDA equipment is between thirty and forty-five minutes.
Q. Does colon therapy suck and/or flush everything out of the colon?
A. No. Colon Hydrotherapy hydrates the entire body. This hydration softens the waste which assists the body in using its own muscular
system to release waste and toxins.
Q Does colon therapy remove all of the good and bad bacteria out of the colon?
A. In the large intestine there are billions of organisms including bacteria, yeast, fungi and viruses. Yes, a balance of good and bad
bacteria are important for a healthy colon. Beneficial bacteria is produced daily if the individual is ingesting proper nutrition. If desired,
probiotic (beneficial bacteria) food and/or supplements can become a part of your dietary program. Colon Hydrotherapy only uses clean
purified water and will not destroy all of your beneficial bacteria. You only lose whatever toxins and bacteria that exists in the waste as it is
moving out of the colon.
Q. Is Colon Hydrotherapy painful?
A. Sometimes there is discomfort, particularly, if the colon is very impacted or in a high gaseous state. Once the major impaction is
removed, it can be very relaxing and comfortable.
Q. Will only one session do the job?
A. One session will empty part of the colon. However, each individual is different. Please discuss a plan with your therapist after each
Q. Can anyone have a colon hydrotherapy session.

anemia, intestinal bleeding, severe hemorrhoids, severe diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, crohn's disease, cirrhosis, fissures/fistulas,
advanced pregnancy, abdominal hernia, recent colon surgery or renal insufficiency. If you are not certain, please check with your physician.
